Romans 13:12  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.
Romans 13:11b  It is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
Luke 23:29a  Behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say
Luke 23:30b  to the mountains, “Fall on us”; and to the hills, “Cover us”.
Mark 13:33  Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
Mark 13:36  Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
