Today we have our charts and timelines, biblical data, and prophecy conferences.  The problem is that many of us have become so familiar with end-time teachings that we have tuned out.  This tendency is similar to the way we treat our alarm clocks. We have grown so accustomed to hearing them sound off that we press snooze and sleep right through. Many of today’s unfolding events are like an alarm warning us to wake out of our spiritual slumber, but our human tendency is to hit the spiritual snooze button, ignoring the coming prophetic events that are casting their shadows upon us with each day’s headlines. Paul sounds a red alert: “Don’t get caught sleeping!”

Scripture reference: 1 Thessalonians 5:1-10.
