Keep Watch

Matt 24:42“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.

Although I think the Lord has given me a number of nudgings that we have to wait longer to meet him in the clouds/escape from all (Luke 21:36), we must always be watching and ready.

Luke 21:36 Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”

There are people in the world who tell us there's no reason to obey the word of God and watch today. Their 'wisdom' will be shown for what it is. For us who take the word at face value, we must continue to be found doing what we were told to do. We are to PRAY that we will be counted worthy to escape ALL of what's about to happen, and we must WATCH for our Lord's return.

And, let us do this ^^^^^ with patience:

Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

grace and peace
