More Than A Weather Warning

 For the past week the red 'BE ALERT' caution bar has flared continuously
 on the weather network with storm and temperature warnings!

 Imagine if the blue sky flashed with red warning-bars
 or a stop watch to let us know the The Day and The Hour!
But 'no man knows the day or the hour, not even the angels in Heaven or the Son himself.
Only the Father knows!'

Be alert, stay on your guard
The hurt and work of life is hard
Pay earnest heed to what you hear
The Word of God is truth, my dear
A solid Rock on which to rest
For time is delicate at best
Vapour of mist that disappears
Into the blue of yesteryears
So be alert, in deed and thought
For the end comes when we think not

The Word of God is filled with loving and earnest caution 
for us to be alert

kinda like 'whether warnings'; whether we are paying attention to what matters most!

"Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."
Matt 26:41

Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day on which your Lord will come. 

So be on your guard! Remember that for three years
 I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.
Acts 20:31

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
1 Peter 5:8

We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.

My son, do not lose sight of this: Preserve sound judgment and discernment.

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
Luke 21:36
