What time is it? It"s time to wake-up. You sleep at night. You don"t sleep during the day. All of us understand what that means. It"s hard to sleep during the day. It doesn"t feel right. It"s not natural. Day is for waking and working; night is for sleeping and dreaming.
Why does Paul say that the long night is over and the day has come? Because the coming of the Lord is at hand. How near is it? Very near indeed. When Billy Graham preaches on the Second Coming, he often tells the story of a grandfather clock whose chimes rang every hour, once for one o"clock, twice for two o"clock, and so on. One night the clock malfunctioned, causing the chimes to ring thirteen times. A little boy heard it and raced through the house yelling "Get up, everyone get up. It"s later than it"s ever been." How true that is. It"s later than it"s ever been, and we"re closer to the coming of Christ than ever before.

Indeed, I'll guess I'll just wait until (if) it happens. Jesus has been coming back for a very long time now.

Actually, I know some people who are nocturnal.

The whole concept of sleeping at night and being awake during the day was instilled on us when we did not have technology like today.

It was too dark at night to do anything but sleep. That left the day, when it was brighter out, open to hunt and gather.

With current technology, that is becoming obsolete. That is why there are more and more people that are nocturnal.

ooh let's not actually address the denial of reality.
I hope that's not an insult.

Christ has been used to teach us who we are in God for the past 2,000 years. Where have you been my poor lost child?

If and when he shows up I have a few questions for him. Until then, none of this is relevant or helpful in any way.
