Are you watching? Don't be caught unawares!
Meaning of "watch"
From G1453; to keep awake, that is, watch (literally or figuratively): - be vigilant, wake, (be) watch (-ful).
Part of what God expects of us is to keep watch for His return. It is closer now then when you first believed! We tend to fall asleep so to speak. We get lazy, lulled by the wait. We can easily forget to see what is happening in the world around us, taking it as just another normal day. IT IS NOT NORMAL. We have continually record breaking weather disasters. RECORD Breaking! How can this be normal to year after year get worse? We have the "norm" of terrorist attacks. This is not Normal! Our daily lives are beset with un normal things happening. Look around and wake up! At no time in all history have we entered time as this. This generation is on a path of destruction in every area you can speak about. If you have not watched this weekly channel on Utube and want to see what the tip of the news around the world is watch it:
Mat 26:41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
This channel is called Jason A. It is just one that shows things going on without any church doctrine or opinion it is just showing you what is on the news for the week.

We all need to be reading more, keeping track of what we spend our time, mind and money on. We are to KNOW the word of God for it is our only base for truth. Our foundation will be on God's truth and not mens ideas.
Which brings up another point, beware of news. A lot of news today is fake news. Check out the articles and many news is defiantly biased. You need to look for News, facts and not opinions. Again you watch and be strong. You continue in prayer. That way when the Son of God comes you will know it is Him and not the imposter that is going to come first. Who is the imposter? What signs come with him? You should know these things. I have links at the top of this blog. There are places with free literature and booklets to study and prove to yourself how to study your Bible and know these things.

More verses with the urgency to keep watch!
Remain alert. Keep standing firm in your faith. Keep on being courageous and strong.
Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;
Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
