"RE:  Robert Belanger--your post, "Watching Times During This Important Week""

 
Hello, John and Doves,
 
May faith, hope, and love carry you through your watch, brother Robert!
You make me think of the priests back in the day, who were called upon to keep a watch 24/7 at the Temple in Jerusalem.  They would have three four-hour watches during the night.  At some unannounced time in the night, the High Priest would inspect the watch.
 
If any priests of that watch were found by the High Priest to be dozing, he would take his torch and set that priest's garment garment afire.  He would escape, but "so as through fire."
 
    "If anyone's work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire."  1 Corinthians 3:15
 
    "But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.
    "You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.
    "Therefore let us not sleep, as others [do], but let us watch and be sober.
    "For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night.
    "But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and [as] a helmet the hope of salvation.
    "For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,
    "who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him."
                                                                                        1 Thessalonians 5:4-10
 
For it is written,
    "The fruit of the righteous [is a] tree of life, And he who wins souls [is] wise."  Proverbs 11:30

In HaShem,
Mike C.

"Watching Times During This Important Week"

Dear Doves,
 
With the many probable dates for the Rapture this coming week it looks like many will be deprived of sleep for we are instructed to watch. If we watch during the second and third night watches, I think that means we need to be awake from 9:00pm to 3:00am.
 
The nights of watching are probably, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23 and 24 of April, i.e Tues through Sunday.
 
I will try, but sometimes the spirit is willing but the body is weak!
 
Pray for me and all others who want to be watching when He appears.
 
Thanks.
 
Robert
