On Waiting and Watching

No one will realize Christ is coming until He has arrived! No one, that is, except those faithful Christians who have been keeping watch. It could well be argued that it is for the sake of these faithful few that all of the prophecies concerning the end times are preserved in Scripture. For they alone will heed them.


The last Christians will be waiting and watching. They will be ready. And they alone among all humanity will perceive the Lord not as a thief, but as the awaited Savior! "Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you" (Revelation 3:3).
