"Again the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered by some of every kind, which when it was full, they drew to shore; and they sat down and gathered the good into vessels, but threw the bad away. So it will be at the end of the age. The angels come forth, seperate the wicked from the just, and cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of the teeth. Jesus said to them, Have you understood these things? They said to Him, Yes Lord."

"which is the manifest evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer; since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation whose trouble you, and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power." 2 Thes. 1:5-9
