Thief in the night.

  1. Thief in the night.

    42 Watch therefore: for ye know not on what day your Lord cometh. 43 But know
    this, that if the master of the house had known in what watch the thief
    was coming, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his
    house to be broken through. 44 Therefore be ye also ready; for in an hour
    that ye think not the Son of man cometh.Mathhew 24:42

    4 When he hath put forth all
    his own, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know
    his voice. 5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for
    they know not the voice of strangers. 6 This parable spake Jesus unto
    them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto
    them. 7 Jesus therefore said unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
    I am the door of the sheep. 8 All that came before me are thieves and
    robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door; by me if any man
    enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and go out, and shall find
    pasture. 10 The thief cometh not, but that he may steal, and kill, and
    destroy: I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.John 10
    Ok this is what i percieve the scripture to be saying Yeshua will return at an hour we know not but we must be on our gaurd agaisnt the thief at all times the scripture explains itself Yeshua came to seek and save not to destroy.Please dear believers the thief is working hard to destroy resist him be not igmorant of his devices he is here already ge strong be of good courage.Look up our redeemer is returning.Yeshua reigns.
  2. V. 13. Wherefore, i.e. because you have such formidable enemies, and
    because the conflict is inevitable,
    ajnala>bete th<n panopli>an tou~ qeou~,
    not only arm yourselves, but
    take the panoply of God; no other is adequate
    to the emergency.
    &Ina dunhqh~te ajntisth~nai ejn th|~ hjme>ra| th|~ ponhra|~,
    in order that ye may be able to withstand, i.e. successfully to resist, in the
    evil day
    . The evil day is the day of trial. Psalms 41:2, "The Lord will
    deliver him in the time of trouble"; or as it is in the Septuagint
    ejn hjmera|~
    ; and Psalms 49:5, "Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil";
    ejn hjmera|~ ponhra|~. The day here referred to is the definite day
    when the enemies previously mentioned shall make their assault. This
    however is not to be understood with special, much less with exclusive,
    reference to the last great conflict with the powers of darkness which is to
    take place before the second advent. The whole exhortation has reference
    to the present duty of believers. They are at once to assume their armor,
    and be always prepared for the attacks of their formidable enemies.
    Kai< a]panta katergasa>menoi sth~nai
    and having done all to stand.
    This is understood by many to refer to the preparation for conflict. Having
    made every preparation, stand ready for the assault. But that idea is
    included in the former part of the verse. Others take
    katerga>zesqai in
    the sense of
    debellare, vincere; having overcome all opposition, or
    conquered all, stand. The ordinary sense of the word includes that idea.
    Having done all that pertains to the combat, to stand; i.e. That you may be
    able, after the conflict is over, to maintain your ground as victors.
  3. PSALM 2
    1 Why do the nations rage, And the peoples meditate a vain thing? 2 The
    kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together,
    Against Jehovah, and against his anointed, saying, 3 Let us break their
    bonds asunder, And cast away their cords from us. 4 He that sitteth in the
    heavens will laugh: The Lord will have them in derision. 5 Then will he
    speak unto them in his wrath, And vex them in his sore displeasure: 6 Yet I
    have set my king Upon my holy hill of Zion.
    7 I will tell of the decree: Jehovah said unto me, Thou art my son; This day
    have I begotten thee. 8 Ask of me, and I will give thee the nations for thine
    inheritance, And the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
    Now therefore be wise, O ye kings: Be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
    11 Serve Jehovah with fear, And rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the son, lest
    he be angry, and ye perish in the way, For his wrath will soon be kindled.
    Blessed are all they that take refuge in him.
    9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; Thou shalt dash them in pieces
    like a potter’s vessel.
  4. PSALM 3
    A psalm of David, When he fled from his son Absalom.
    1 Jehovah, how are mine adversaries increased! Many are they that rise up
    against me. 2 Many there are that say of my soul, There is no help for him
    in God. Selah 3 But thou, O Jehovah, art a shield about me; My glory and
    the lifter up of my head.
    4 I cry unto Jehovah with my voice, And he answereth me out of his holy
    hill. Selah 5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; For Jehovah sustaineth me.
    6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of the people That have set
    themselves against me round about. 7 Arise, O Jehovah; Save me, O my
    God: For thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; Thou
    increased. 8 In peace will I both lay me down and sleep; For thou, Jehovah,
    alone makest me dwell in safety.
    hast broken the teeth of the wicked. 8 Salvation belongeth unto Jehovah:
    Thy blessing be upon thy people. Selah
    PSALM 4
    For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm of David.
    1 Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness; Thou hast set me at
    large when I was in distress: Have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
    2 O ye sons of men, how long shall my glory be turned into dishonor? How
    long will ye love vanity, and seek after falsehood? Selah 3 But know that
    Jehovah hath set apart for himself him that is godly: Jehovah will hear
    when I call unto him. 4 Stand in awe, and sin not: Commune with your own
    heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah 5 Offer the sacrifices of
    righteousness, And put your trust in Jehovah.
    6 Many there are that say, Who will show us any good? Jehovah, lift thou
    up the light of thy countenance upon us. 7 Thou hast put gladness in my
    heart, More than they have when their grain and their new wine are
  5. Yeshua of nazareth is Lord.The LOrd REIGNS.Arise Oh LOrd make haste deliver Thy darling from the lions.Shatter thier teeth.And consume all Your enemies with the brigthness of Your return.
  6. I truly believe in Yeshua of nazareth He alone is my Lord and only true believers are my brothers and sisters in Christ.I wont sit in the seat of mokers repent the kingdom of God is near.
  7. Amen Brother:)

    God bless you in all knowledge and wisdom
