1 THESSALONIANS 5:6

1 THESSALONIANS 5:6
Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.

 

OF COURSE PAUL IS NOT REFERRING TO PHYSICAL SLEEP, BUT RATHER A STATE OF SPIRITUAL IGNORANCE, OR DULLHEADEDNESS, IF YOU WOULD.

HE WAS SPEAKING OF THE DAY OF THE LORD, AS IN THE DAY OF THE LORD’S RETURN, ADVISING HIS PEOPLE THAT, UNLIKE THE REST OF THE UNBELIEVING WORLD, BELIEVERS/FOLLOWERS OF CHRIST SHOULD LIVE THEIR LIVES IN DAILY READINESS. WE ARE TO WALK IN THAT STATE OF READINESS, HAVING ON THE WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD.

THIS IS GREAT ADVICE FOR US TODAY, EVEN MORE SO THAN IT WAS AT THAT TIME, FOR WE LIVE IN THE GENERATION WHEN THESE THINGS MAY VERY LIKELY BE FULFILLED. LET US WALK IN THE LIGHT BEING SOBER & VIGILANT REGARDING EVERY SPIRITUAL TRUTH KNOWN TO US.
