Jesus Christ never intended for His people to be taken by surprise at His coming. He intends for you to be totally aware of the time of His return, so that you would be watch- ing, waiting, and ready when He comes again. Scriptures that refer to His coming again as “a thief in the night” do not refer to the way the church will experience His return, but to the way the world will see it. The coming of Christ will take the world totally by surprise—but not the Chritian. Paul said, “But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the chil-dren of the light” (1 Thessalonians 5:4, 5).
