37 Blessed are those servants whom the lord finds watching when he comes. Truly I say to you, he will gird himself and make them sit down to eat, and he will come and serve them. [Behold, I stand at the door, and knock. If any man hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Rev 3:20]
38 And if he comes in the second watch or the third watch, and finds them so, blessed are those servants.
34 Blessed is the man who hears me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. [From the Word of the Lord within: "Without our promises the soul is grieved; with them the soul settles down to a vigilant tribute to the Lord." To wait and watch is a tribute to the Lord; a tribute is something that you do to show that you respect and admire someone or something. To show respect and admiration for God by waiting and watching for Him is the beginning of love of God.]
35 For whoever finds me, finds life; and he shall obtain favor of the LORD.
|2 Corinthians 11:27|
27 In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fasts often, in cold and lack of clothing.
|1 Corinthians 16:13|
13 Watch, stand fast in the faith, conduct yourself like men, be strong. [Be devoted to prayer with watching and thankfulness. Col 4:2]
33 Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is.
35 Watch therefore; for you do not know when the master of the house is coming, at evening, or at midnight, or at the rooster crowing, or in the morning;
37 And what I say to you I say to all: Watch."
|Matthew 24:42 |
42 Watch therefore! For you do not know at what hour your Lord comes.
