Not Time To Sleep

Focus: 1 Thessalonians 5:6 - KJV

6. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.


Romans 13:11-14


There is an urgency in the spirit about life and the space we are in at the moment. It is appearing like, as against the mind and the purpose of God, men are in adversity one against the other and it does not seem one race wants the other to exist as coexistence is becoming a difficult phenomenon worldwide. Hence, wars, attacks, kidnappings, xenophobia and all manner of hate actions are rampant in the world today. Aside that, the one responsible for all of these negative occurrences is also forcing things that appear natural but are inimical to human peaceful existence. Such phenomena as hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes and so on. Combined with the human activities earlier mentioned, the earth is made a hard place to live in. To those who have understanding of the times, it is all pointing to something: the prince of this world is about to be fully enthroned. And, if we are to follow the Lord’s position, such enthronement ought not to meet the righteous on the planet. It follows that before the enthronement, there will first be a taking away. Only those who are alert will make the rapture. Those who sleep in this crucial time may just not hear the alarm when the bridegroom arrives to take His bride, the Church.


The state of being asleep is that of putting Christ aside and putting on the flesh. That simply is about romancing the world and the lusts in it rather than holding on strongly to the Lord’s ways. How do we put on Jesus Christ so as to be seen to be alert? Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying, says the Holy Bible. Therefore, everything that will becloud our spiritual alertness are not to be entertained at this time. Let not the care of the world deprive you of the rapture for what shall it profit a man if he gains even the entire world and forfeits his own soul? Those that will be left behind at the rapture will have greater torment than the world is going through at the moment. What people call tribulation at the moment is nothing but child’s play compared to what will happen when the prince of this world is fully enthroned. Then, unless you submit to the authority of the wicked as your lord, it will be difficult to do anything in the regular society. Submission is about accepting the mark of the beast for access to amenities, which ordinarily will be scarce and difficult to obtain. Think about it.


Lord, we have suffered enough in the flesh even at this time and will never want to live in torment under the overlordship of the enemy; please do all that must be done that we may never lose our salvation in you, in the name of Jesus. Please never leave us or any one of us behind when you come for your Church dear Lord, in Jesus’ name. Do prune us by yourself that we may be fit for the rapture by helping us to shed every load of the world that may want to weigh us down when it is most essential, in Jesus’ name. Please let not our depriving ourselves of worldly pleasure that we may gain the pleasure of heaven be in vain our dear Lord, in Jesus’ name.


SOLUTION: Be sober and watchful. The night is far spent, and the light of the day of the Lord is very near. Do not be caught napping so that you do not end up in the wrong company. The bane of that is eternal mockery for losing both ways. Please be alert.
