LUKE 17: 36-40
Jesus explained a parable regarding the gathering of the righteous. (compare Luke 17: 37)
  36 And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord, shall they be taken.
  37 And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is gathered; or, in other words, whithersoever the saints are gathered, thither will the eagles be gathered together; or, thither will the remainder be gathered together.
  38 This he spake, signifying the gathering of his saints; and of angels descending and gathering the remainder unto them; the one from the bed, the other from the grinding, and the other from the field, whithersoever he listeth.
  39 For verily there shall be new heavens, and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
  40 And there shall be no unclean thing; for the earth becoming old, even as a garment, having waxed in corruption, wherefore it vanisheth away, and the footstool remaineth sanctified, cleansed from all sin.
