Have you recognized the nation against nation as countries have thrown down their own rulers in the last few years Egypt for one and others, earthquakes in diverse(strange) places, the signs in the skies/heavens stars, comets, planets etc... which God made for signs to us, from Him. God is shaking the heavens and the earth and everything is being tossed into the FIRE to expose it for what it is either worthy as gold or burned up as in ashes.
1 Cor 3:15
15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
KJV
2 Peter 3:7
7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
KJV

We as Christians are suppose to be wide awake and knowing that our God is the one in control, we should not be shaking in fear, but standing FIRM knowing the Word of truth.

Read at the things that are about to come upon the people of God:
Luke 21:9-28
9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.
10 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
12 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.
13 And it shall turn to you for a testimony.
14 Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:
15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
16 And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.
17 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.
18 But there shall not an hair of your head perish.
19 In your patience possess ye your souls.
20 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.
21 Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.
22 For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
23 But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people.
24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
KJV

Those 5 wise virgins enjoyed their sleep I'm sure.

Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.

Seems the best way to keep watch is to fall asleep to what is going on around you. I suppose being at rest is the most advantageous way of hearing the call of God. Be still and know that I am a God.

You won't hear them tell you this in church on Sunday.

Been awake for a long time.

Nothing new here as it has been going on at an accelerated rate world wide for decades.
