 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33 Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is. 34 It is like a man going to a far country, who left his house and gave authority to his servants, and to each his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to watch. 35 Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming—in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning— 36 lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping. 37 And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!”

The days before the return of Christ will be days of unparalleled darkness and deception. And it will be those who are watchful and holding fast to the truth that will see things for what they really are. It will be a felt darkness that clings to the heart and threatens to suffocate it. Those days of darkness will require every believer in Christ to take serious inventory of there own souls if they are to survive, to allow the Holy Spirit unhindered access to every corner of our soul. Jesus exhorts us four times to “watch”. When the atmosphere and circumstances are heavy with spiritual darkness it is the watchful, prayerful heart that will come through unharmed. Those who live a life free of compromise, and intolerant of sin within themselves will be those who can see clearly. The command to “keep watch” is the call to be awake and alert, hidden in Christ, and responsibly filling the call of God in this life. It is Jesus who leads us into victory over deception and darkness. It is through our knowledge and connection with Him that we will endure. Darkness can not extinguish the the Light of Christ within us, so let us be watchful, both inwardly and outwardly. Let us not be found sleeping, but patiently and passionately looking for the coming of our Savior.

“if your eye is good, your whole body will be filled with light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be filled with darkness. If therefore, the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness” Matthew 6:22-23

“In this world you will have tribulation. But take heart! I have overcome the world” John 16:33
