Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
– Revelation 16:15
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
Many brothers and sisters expect that the Lord will come soon so that we can be raptured into the kingdom of heaven. Thus, we closely monitor the prophecies of theof Jesus. This verse predicts that the Lord will come like a thief, just as it is said in Revelation 3:3, “If therefore you shall not watch, I will come on you as a thief, and you shall not know what hour I will come on you.” Coming as a thief means coming quietly and secretly, that is to say, the Lord will come secretly. It is obvious that it is impossible for us to know the day of the Lord’s coming. Some people may ask: If we have no idea when the Lord comes, then how can we welcome Him? As a matter of fact, Jesus has told us the answer. He said, “And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go you out to meet him” (Mat 25:6). “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me” (Jhn 10:27). “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me” (Rev 3:20). These verses clearly tell us that when we hear someone yells “Behold, the bridegroom comes,” which is to say, when we hear someone preaches that the Lord has returned and begun to speak, we should welcome Him like the wise virgins. Only in this way, we can be raptured before God.
