Matt 24:44Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
Notice it says ^^^ be ye also ready....ye means you and me, not the wicked, not the unbeliever, not the rest of the world, you and me the believers. We were told to be ready because He is coming for us at an unknown hour, just exactly like the bridegroom came for the bride at an unknown hour in ancient Israel marriage tradition.
The Lord God our Savior and Bridegroom could come back for us today. Let us be watching and ready while the rest of the world and many in so called christianity argue that the Lord either wont come back for us, or wont come back for us any time soon. Oh the surprise on their faces when He DOES come back for us before any of them expected, just exactly like He said He would...unexpected..
We will be surprised, but we will have been watching and ready when He arrives. Will the Son find faith on earth when He arrives? That is the question He asked in Luke. I pray that in our case, the answer will be yes and we can open the door for Him and say "Master, we have been watching for you, we did expect you, and HERE YOU ARE!"
Blessed be the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and our Father in heaven. Be ready and watching..
grace and peace
