Jesus says: “Behold, I [COME AS A THIEF]. Blessed is he that [WATCHETH], and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame” (Revelation 16:15).
“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only” (Matthew 24:36).
“Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. [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: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, [WATCH]” (Mark 13:33, 35-37).
“The day of the Lord will come as [A THIEF IN THE NIGHT]; in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up” (2 Peter 3:10).

“[THEREFORE LET US NOT SLEEP], as do others; but let us [WATCH AND BE SOBER]. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but [TO OBTAIN SALVATION] by our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thessalonians 5:6-9).
