On KEEPING watch


Matthew 25:13

King James Version

13 Watch therefore, 

for ye know neither the day nor the hour 

wherein the Son of man cometh.

The born again believe in the Rapture.

It is the most imminent event every true CHRISTIAN waits for.

We know GOD will appoint the day, or hour, when the LORD JESUS will have His faithful meet Him up in the air.

We know we have to be worthy of the LORD.

We have to be awake, and aware.

JESUS tells us how:

Matthew 5:48

King James Version

48 Be ye therefore perfect, 

even as your Father which is in heaven 

is perfect.

Mark 13:33-34

King James Version

33 Take ye heed, 

watch and pray: 

for ye know not when the time is.

4 For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, 

who left his house, 

and gave authority to his servants, 

and to every man his work, 

and commanded the porter to watch.

Mark 13:35-37

King James Version

35 Watch ye therefore: 

for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, 

at even, or at midnight, 

or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:

36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.

37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, 


Luke 12:29-31

King James Version

29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, 

or what ye shall drink, 

neither be ye of doubtful mind.

30 For all these things 

do the nations of the world seek after:

and your Father knoweth 

that ye have need of these things.

31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; 

and all these things shall be added unto you.

Luke 12:35

King James Version

35 Let your loins be girded about, 

and your lights burning;

Luke 12:36

King James Version

36 And ye yourselves like unto men 

that wait for their lord, 

when he will return from the wedding; 

that when he cometh and knocketh, 

they may open unto him immediately.

Luke 12:37-38

King James Version

37 Blessed are those servants, 

whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: 

verily I say unto you, 

that he shall gird himself,

 and make them to sit down to meat, 

and will come forth and serve them.

38 And if he shall come in the second watch, 

or come in the third watch, 

and find them so, 

blessed are those servants.

Luke 12:39

King James Version

39 And this know, 

that if the goodman of the house 

had known what hour the thief would come, 

he would have watched, 

and not have suffered his house 

to be broken through.

Luke 12:40

King James Version

40 Be ye therefore ready also: 

for the Son of man cometh at an hour 

when ye think not.

Luke 12:43-44

King James Version

43 Blessed is that servant,

 whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

44 Of a truth I say unto you, 

that he will make him ruler 

over all that he hath.
