Concerning times of this season,
To have something written to you;
There is a logical reason,
That you are able to construe.
You know that the Day of the Lord,
Will come like a thief in the night;
And it should never be ignored,
Of His Spirit to guide the light.
Is there peace and security?
When there is sudden destruction;
Having a painful scrutiny,
Causing political obstruction.
Labor pains from a pregnancy,
Not allowing any escape;
Leaving darkness for clemency,
Allowing your mind to reshape.
But you are not in the darkness,
Surprising you just like a thief;
Realizing about the starkness,
Because of your inner belief.
For you are all children of light,
Being as children of the day;
Because we are not of the night,
Since the darkness would make you stray.
We must not be allowed to sleep,
Rather be sober and alert;
That we are not slaughtered like sheep,
Thoughts of God through our effort.
For those who sleep will sleep at night,
All night long they had been drinking;
But since we are children of light,
Heavenly thoughts what we are thinking.
Wear the breastplate of faith and love,
And the helmet of salvation;
Being presented from above,
That builds up a firm foundation.
Christ died for those who sleep and wake,
So that we might have life with Him;
The Day of the Lord for your sake,
Giving you His spiritual vim.
Therefore encourage each other,
For building up your foundation;
Just as you do for your brother,
Enabled to receive salvation.
