What would it take for PEOPLE to WAKE up?


1 Thessalonians 5:5-6

King James Version

5 Ye are all the children of light, 

and the children of the day: 

we are not of the night, 

nor of darkness.

6 Therefore let us not sleep, 

as do others; 

but let us watch and be sober.

JESUS is waking us up.

It's time to wake up.

What do we need to wake up from?

Why do we need to wake up at all?

Revelation 3:2-3

King James Version

2 Be watchful, 

and strengthen the things which remain, 

that are ready to die: 

for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

3 Remember therefore how thou hast received 

and heard, 

and hold fast, 

and repent. 

If therefore thou shalt not watch, 

I will come on thee as a thief, 

and thou shalt not know what hour 

I will come upon thee.

The LORD warned the time is at hand.

Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.

Our salvation draws near.

Romans 13:11-14

King James Version

11 And that, 

knowing the time, 

that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: 

for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.

12 The night is far spent, 

the day is at hand: 

let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, 

and let us put on the armour of light.

13 Let us walk honestly, 

as in the day

not in rioting and drunkenness, 

not in chambering and wantonness, 

not in strife and envying.

14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, 

and make not provision for the flesh

to fulfil the lusts thereof.

How do we even know we need to wake up?

Ephesians 5:13-20

King James Version

13 But all things that are reproved 

are made manifest by the light: 

for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

14 Wherefore he saith, 

Awake thou that sleepest, 

and arise from the dead, 

and Christ shall give thee light.

15 See then that ye walk circumspectly

not as fools, 

but as wise,

16 Redeeming the time, 

because the days are evil.

17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, 

but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

18 And be not drunk with wine, 

wherein is excess; 

but be filled with the Spirit;

19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms 

and hymns and spiritual songs, 

singing and making melody in your heart 

to the Lord;

20 Giving thanks always 

for all things unto God and the Father 

in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

You will only really wake up, when repentance is real.

That's when the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD will show up, and start teaching you everything about JESUS.

Acts 2:38

King James Version

38 Then Peter said unto them, 


and be baptized every one of you 

in the name of Jesus Christ 

for the remission of sins, 

and ye shall receive 

the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Only the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD  can wake us up from sin.

Sin is death.

Romans 5:12

King James Version

12 Wherefore, 

as by one man sin entered into the world, 

and death by sin; 

and so death passed upon all men, 

for that all have sinned:

We need to wake up from it.

So we may join JESUS, in our glorified bodies, when GOD says it's time!

And that moment draws ever nearer.
