“[WHO IS AMONG YOU THAT FEARETH] the LORD, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? [LET HIM TRUST IN THE NAME] of the LORD, and [STAY UPON HIS GOD]” (Isaiah 50:10).
“[AND THAT, KNOWING THE TIME], that now [IT IS HIGH TIME TO AWAKE OUT OF SLEEP]: for now is [OUR SALVATION NEARER THAN WHEN WE BELIEVED]” (Romans 13:11).
“[ELECT ACCORDING TO THE FOREKNOWLEDGE OF GOD THE FATHER], through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied. [TO AN INHERITANCE INCORRUPTIBLE, AND UNDEFILED, AND THAT FADETH NOT AWAY, RESERVED IN HEAVEN FOR YOU]” (1 Peter 1:2, 4).
“[AND HAVE NO FELLOWSHIP WITH THE UNFRUITFUL WORKS OF DARKNESS, BUT RATHER REPROVE THEM]. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light” (Ephesians 5:11–13).
“Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye [LIGHT IN THE LORD: WALK AS CHILDREN OF LIGHT]: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord” (Ephesians 5:7-10).
Let us stand and keep steadfast in the LIGHT of JESUS CHRIST to the E N D (Matthew 24:36) (Revelation 11:18).
“For yourselves know perfectly that the [DAY OF THE LORD SO COMETH AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT]. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
[BUT YE, BRETHREN, ARE NOT IN DARKNESS], that that day should overtake you as a thief.
[YE ARE ALL THE CHILDREN OF LIGHT, AND THE CHILDREN OF THE DAY]: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober” (1 Thessalonians 5:2-6).
“Now the [GOD OF PEACE] be with you all. Amen” (Romans 15:33).
