At An Hour You Least Expect!

Psalm 118: 28 - 29 28 You are my God, and I will praise You; You are my God, I will exalt You. 29 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.
I received an interesting dream this morning, the 26th October 2020 at about 4:30 AM. I believe that the dream is cautioning us to be ready because at a moment now, the Lord comes. I hope and pray that you will be edified and encouraged by this short dream.
This is what I dreamt:
In my dream, I was sleeping. And as I was sleeping, I saw myself waking up because of a very pungent smell. It was the smell of burning metal. The smell was very strong as though the metal was burning right under my nose.
I saw myself rise and search the source of the smell. I walked quickly to the living room and as soon as I went into the room, I noted to my shock and dismay that the metal bars of the window burglar proofing had been cut using a gas or electrical welding machine. The bars had been forced inwards so as to allow the trespasser to enter. I noted that the lowest bar near the window sill was still burning and smoldering. There was white smoke coming from it. The irritating smell was quite unbearable.
Immediately on seeing this, I realized that this was a break-in, and a thief had gained access to my house. As I was realizing this, I heard the noise at the back of the house as he left. I shouted “A thief! Help me!”
After this, I was very perplexed because it was late afternoon, perhaps about 5 PM.
I asked myself, “Who steals at this hour?”
Then the dream ended and I woke up.
As I was waking up, the words “At an hour you least expect” were strongly in my mind.
Meaning of the dream:
This dream, I believe, is cautioning us not to fall asleep at this hour. The Lord is saying that He will come like a thief and at an hour that we do not expect. Therefore it is time for all of us to be awake and alert, repenting always of our sins and praying that we may be accounted worthy to escape all that is about to befall the earth and to stand before the Son of Man.
The Faithful Servant and the Evil Servant
Luke 12: 35 – 48
35 “Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning; 36 and you yourselves be like men who wait for their master, when he will return from the wedding, that when he comes and knocks they may open to him immediately. 37 Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them. 38 And if he should come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. 39 But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. 40 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”
41 Then Peter said to Him, “Lord, do You speak this parable only to us, or to all people?”
42 And the Lord said, “Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his master will make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of food in due season? 43 Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes. 44 Truly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all that he has. 45 But if that servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,’ and begins to beat the male and female servants, and to eat and drink and be drunk, 46 the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. 47 And that servant who knew his master’s will, and did not prepare himself or do according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48 But he who did not know, yet committed things deserving of stripes, shall be beaten with few. For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more.
