Revelation 16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. KJV
Watcheth — c) vigilant
Vigilant — d) alert to danger
2Cor. 5:1-3 For we know that if the tent which is our earthly home is destroyed, we have from God a building, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
2. Here indeed, in this (present, abode, body), we sigh and groan inwardly, because we yearn to be clothed over — to put on our celestial body like a garment, to be fitted out — with our heavenly dwelling:
3. So that by putting it on we may not be found naked—-without a body.
We need to be filled with the Holy Spirit and our sin covered in the Blood of Jesus. That is the only way we can be accepted into heaven. This body has a sin nature and will always lead us away from the Lord. He said that without Him we can do nothing.
Adam and Eve hid themselves from God after they ate the fruit and disobeyed Him. They were not naked until they ate the fruit. Then God said who told you, you were naked?
How lightly do we take one small sin? And yet one small sin corrupted all mankind and caused Jesus to suffer more than any to pay our debt.
When He says He is coming like a thief, He is quietly going to show up unexpectedly. We are to pay attention to all the little sins that are not little to Him. We are to be alert to danger meaning to stay away from sin and keep our garments unspotted by sin and the flesh. If we do not keep our garments spotless, when He comes, all will see what we do not want anyone to see.
How do we do this? By talking to Him, He will reveal our sins to us that we do not see. And as we pray for Him to wipe them away and forgive us, He most definitely will. We must be rich in our relationship with Him and always talk to Him. He is always there waiting for us to come. He loves us so and delights to be with us. Let us delight to be with Him!
This is so true. When you pray the Lord show you your sins you have to be still so He can show you so you can be forgiven.
