Benificial Sleep Time -> z z z z zzz alarm clock beep beep beep BEEP BEEP
On beneficial sleep, I know that aprox. 3 hours sleep time is not enough sleep time.
Depending on how tired you are at that time.
So let's say Sleep starts at 8pm-8:30 to 11:30pm or so. After Midnight Watch, you can get more sleep if needed.
Concerning sleep, This is only advice to you, if you can handle going with less sleep then you usually are used to.
Careful, with your Medication Pills, etc. as they say with their disclaimer, check with your Doctor about it.
Your Medication Procedures is priority over any advice this Watch Hour procedure page can advise you on.
Between Sundown and Midnight is the Second Watch, plus the "FREE TIME" on both sides of the Second Watch. That gives me about 3 hours to sleep, and I can catch a nap here or there, if I need it.
The LORD Does Not WARN against being asleep during the Second Watch. That's why I sleep/ nap during the Second Watch of the night. Keep that Alarm Clock close by.
Remember the 10 Virgins parable:
Matthew 25:6 And at Midnight a "Cry (alarm) was heard."_____.
This is the same "Warning Chapter" where Jesus says to the foolish virgins, Truly, I say on to you, "I know You not."
Ten Virgins parable is about having knowledge of Jesus's Holy Scriptures to be comparable to Spiritual Oil to light up your Lamp to lighten your path way. NO Oil is not knowing the Holy Scriptures of Jesus Christ, because you are not a Believer. Even if YOU consider yourself to be a "Christian" but having little, if any interest in studying the "WORD". Therefore Jesus Christ referring you to be a foolish person who turned down the lighted path way, preferring not knowing what's lurking in the dark.
John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickens (gives life); the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak unto you, [they] are spirit, and [they] are life.
Mark 13:31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
Note: Heaven and Earth shall pass away but the Lord Jesus Christ's "WORDS" shall not pass away and shall be preached to the New Heaven and New Earth.
Mat 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
Mat 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
According to the above
Mark 13:35 --->13:37
1st Watch at Sundown (evening)
2nd Watch, Sleep aprox. 3 hours
3rd Watch at Midnight,
4th Watch of the night. Aprox. around 3am/3:30am
Or the 1st Watch of the morning: Sunrise.
Mark 13:35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
Mark 13:36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
Mark 13:37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
Matthew NKJV] 1 "Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.
Matthew 25:2 "Now five of them were wise, and five [were] foolish.
Matthew 25:3 "Those who [were] foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them,
Matthew 25:4 "but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
Matthew 25:5 "But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept.
Matthew 25:6 "And at midnight a cry was [heard]: 'Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!'
Matthew 25:7 "Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps.
Matthew 25:8 "And the foolish said to the wise, 'Give us [some] of your oil, for our lamps are going out.'
Matthew 25:9 "But the wise answered, saying, '[No], lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.'
Matthew 25:10 "And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut.
Matthew 25:11 "Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, 'Lord, Lord, open to us!'
Matthew 25:12 "But he answered and said, (TRULY) I say to you, I do not know you.'
Matthew 25:13 "Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.
John 6:63 It is the Spirit that Quickens (gives life); the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak unto you, [they] are spirit, and [they] are life.
Jesus is actually saying the printed words and audio spoken words of the Gospels, the letters of the Apostle Paul and the other Apostles are Spiritual and have Life in them, when his Words are activated by the Reader to him/herself, or spoken to the Hearers of an audience.
Be careful with your commentaries, Commentaries can take away from the Lords "True Word" message.
Scriptures should always backup a commentary. And Scripture should not be taken out of context. And if so, with a truthful explanation.
