Be vigilant at all times, says the LORD. I have called the watchers to WATCH and PRAY and Wait. Be ready at all times to sound the alarm! Keep your eyes and ears open and be alert. For the enemy is looking for opportunity to attack the sleeping ones. Be on the lookout, and do not become slack. For I Am coming soon, and the enemy knows that his time is short, says the LORD.
Lift up your voice like a trumpet, says the LORD. Sound the alarm! Awaken those who are asleep. For it is a battlefield, not a recreation room. It is not a time to play war games or practice, but a time to engage in real warfare. This is not a day for a parade, to display the weapons and arsenal down the streets in a show of power, but the real battle is at hand. Put on the armor and pick up the weapons that I have given you that will out-power the enemy. It is time for My leaders to lead, My captains to issue commands, and My warriors to rise up and contend for the faith, engage the enemy, and push back the forces darkness as they put on the armor of light, says the LORD.
