This is one of my favorite verses of scripture, mostly because it is so powerfully stated. It says:
"Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when then master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning.
"Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
"And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch."
I believe that when the Second Coming hits, that many people are going to be stunned, and yell and scream at God for not warning them well enough. However, I completely disagree. These verses alone give us such wonderful instruction on how to be protected in that great and also dreadful day.
See, God and Jesus Christ have been instructing us all along. They have given us the scriptures as a guidebook in order to survive this life and make it back to them.
I am reading a novel right now about a video game creator that died and had left an incredible fortune ($250,000,000,000). However, since he didn't have anyone specific to give it to, he hid clues within his video games on how to find where all his money was. He also published his journals, which were thousands of pages with information that could help one find the fortune. A craze struck and everyone across the world began to read his journals incessantly and studied every aspect of his life in hopes of shedding some light as to where his fortune could be found.
I relate this to these verses because Heavenly Father has a GREAT fortune waiting for us that is much greater than two hundred and fifty billion dollars. And he has left us with detailed instructions, in the scriptures, about how to get it. So why are we not pouring over these words??
