“Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming.
Be on the alert then, for you do not know the day nor the hour.
But keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.
Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.
so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober.
“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.
(“Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk about naked and men will not see his shame.”)
Then He *said to them, “My soul is deeply grieved, to the point of death; remain here and keep watch with Me.”
“Take heed, keep on the alert; for you do not know when the appointed time will come.
“Be dressed in readiness, and keep your lamps lit.
Do this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed.
The end of all things is near; therefore, be of sound judgment and sober spirit for the purpose of prayer.
Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
Wake up, and strengthen the things that remain, which were about to die; for I have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My God.
