You are absolutely right! Watching is not an option.
It is what we are commaded to do.
"WE need to PROVE to them, through the Scriptures, that we HAVE
BEEN COMMANDED TO WATCH and that it IS NOT OPTIONAL!!
Ezek 3:17 - I HAVE MADE THEE A WATCHMAN.
Mt 24:42 - WATCH THEREFORE.
Mt 25:13 - WATCH THEREFORE.
Mk 13:35 - WATCH YE THEREFORE.
Mk 13:37 - AND WHAT I SAY UNTO YOU I SAY UNTO ALL, WATCH.
Luke 21:36 - WATCH YE THEREFORE, AND PRAY ALWAYS, THAT YE MAY BE
ACCOUNTED WORTHY TO ESCAPE ALL THESE THINGS.
1 Thes 5:6 - LET US NOT SLEEP, AS DO OTHERS; BUT LET US WATCH.
Luke 12:37 - BLESSED ARE THOSE SERVANTS, WHOM THE LORD WHEN HE
COMETH SHALL FIND WATCHING.
Heb 9:28 - ; AND UNTO THEM THAT LOOK FOR HIM SHALL HE APPEAR THE
Rev 3:3 - IF...THOU SHALT NOT WATCH, I WILL COME ON THEE AS A
THIEF, AND THOU SHALT NOT KNOW WHAT HOUR I WILL COME UPON THEE.
Rev. 16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that
watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they
see his shame."
