Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor
the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.
Take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighted down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.
The day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.
Matt. 25:13; Luke 21:34–36; 1 Thess. 5:2–6
I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless.
Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected … I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.
Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
§ We all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
Jesus spoke these words: . . . “I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one.”
