“Look, I come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake and remains clothed, so as not to go naked and be shamefully exposed.”
The Lord’s second coming and judgment day is not only in the book of Revelation but all over scripture. At least four times, Jesus says, the Son of Man comes to pass final judgment, with no warning. He comes like a thief in the night to catch people in their natural behavior. If a thief comes in the night, most of the time, people will be asleep. They feel comfortable in their homes and in their beds, so comfortable they dress down to feel safe enough to sleep. The scripture says the blessed are not naked but are fully clothed and have no shame. I heard my father say; the truth is like a swimsuit, all secrets revealed. It is easy to tell if a person has a well-fit body, visible tattoos, or birthmarks, or you can tell if they squeeze themselves inside a tight pair of jeans. But the Bible is not talking about physical garments, but if our hearts are in worship with God or not. The gospel of Matthew and Luke, both have a parable that tells a story about judgment day and how it will happen. God made heaven and earth and is the master of both. God will destroy the earth and those who lived by the wicked ways of the world. As the Master of His house, the Lord will take the children of God’s home. When the Son of Man comes, those He finds spiritually dressed properly, the Master will cut them to pieces.
Matthew 24:42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.~Matthew 24:50 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. 51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth
Luke 12:35 “Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning, 36 like servants waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him.~ Luke 12:46 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers.
Being naked is like shame and what sin is, it removes the image of God and creates distances. Adam and Eve were made shameless, but they weren’t naked, only that they lived covered in the image of God. When they trusted the Devil’s lies and disobey God’s word, they lost the image of God and were completely naked, full of shameful sin.
Genesis 3:9 But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?” 10 He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.” 11 And he said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?”
Revelation chapter 16 from verses 15 to 21, and the Lord is separating the righteous from the wicked, the shameless from the shameful. He does notice the mark of the beast by a visible bar code, or microchip under the skin, or even by the medicine that might be in the COVID-19 vaccine. He can clearly see if your life shines a light for His glory or if you are your heart is clothed covered in the darkness of worshiping a false image. How does, your light shine, brothers, and sisters? Does your heart wear the garments of the Lord’s Spirit? Are you ready for judgment day now, or are you trusting false prophecy that the coming of the Son of Man has some warning? A prepared warning of Jesus’ coming doesn’t exist, other than the signs of times that are already in God’s word. God bless you all, the Lord Jesus loves you and so do I. His bondservant, Samuel H.
1 Thessalonians 5:1 Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, 2 for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3 While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 4 But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. 5 You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. 6 So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep but let us be awake and sober. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. 8 But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. 9 For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
