In general as an idiom it means being caught unaware, but as a remez statement it may hint at some deeper meaning uncovered from other scriptures, or by linking different scriptures together.
We learned in a previous lesson that it is used for the action of the bridegroom when he goes to fetch his wife. It can have a positive connotation or a negative connotation depending on whether one is watchful or not. A bride aware and waiting to be taken by her groom as the thief in the night is a positive understanding. Someone asleep and being caught totally unaware is the negative aspect of the idiom.
As a remez statement the hint is about the Bridegroom coming as a thief in the night, Sweet Thief - Lancee & Deadman - Shakesperience it hints at a wedding. The following scripture speaks of the idiom in the sense of being caught unaware and this ministry believes that it also hints remez as to when that will be. They will not know what hour that will take place because they do not understand the season of His return.
Because the feast is for two days, one cannot know the exact day or the hour. At the same time this scripture is a warning to those that have not been watchful, and because they are asleep they will be caught unware and unprepared, just like a thief in the night.
I believe however that the Church is waking up. More and more congregations are becoming aware of their Jewish roots and many congregations are now celebrating the feasts of the Lord.
When this day comes From here we move to last chapter of the New Testament, the book of Revelation. John, I am sure records the words of our Lord with great understanding for he was from a priestly line. But for us 2, years removed from our Jewish roots find the following words bewildering.
Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk Town Meeting - Max Steiner - Johnny Belinda, and they see his shame". There is a hint remez in these words of Jesus that point to a deeper hidden meaning. They are only hidden to those that are not His, or are yet to be His. To fully understand the meaning of this scripture, one must first understand the officiating of the Temple guards.
There were twenty four stations or courses around the Temple guarding the Temple gates and courts. At night each station had ten Levi guards; making a total guards plus 30 priests every night. During the day the guards were relieved; but not during the night. Therefore, some of the guards would fall asleep on duty. The Captain of the Temple would make his rounds every night. As the Captain approached the guards, they were to arise and Sweet Thief - Lancee & Deadman - Shakesperience the Captain.
If any one of the guards was found sleeping the Captain would beat him and set his clothes on Mary Had A Little Lamb - Stevie Ray Vaughan - MP3 Collection with his torch. On these rare occasions, the guard would shed his clothes ablaze and run Sweet Thief - Lancee & Deadman - Shakesperience the night naked and ashamed. Behold, I come as a thief.
Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. I am going to be coming to you as a thief in the night Blessed are those that watch for my day and are not found by me sleeping. They will instead keep their garments Sweet Thief - Lancee & Deadman - Shakesperience not be caught like the guards in the temple who fell asleep and the captain set their clothes on fire and in shame they ran into the night naked.
However there will be those that will not be so Jimmy Smith - The Fantastic Jimmy Smith for I will come as a thief in the night for them, I will find them asleep, naked and ashamed.
