31 Heaven and earth [as now known] will [a]pass away, but My words will not pass away.
32 But of that [exact] day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son [in His humanity],
but the Father alone.
33 “Be on guard and stay constantly alert [b][and pray]; for you do not know when the appointed time will come.
34 It is like a man away on a journey, who when he left home put his servants in charge, each with his particular task,
and also ordered the doorkeeper to be continually alert.
35 Therefore, be continually on the alert—for you do not know when the master of the house is coming,
whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or in the morning—
36 [stay alert,] in case he should come suddenly and unexpectedly and find you asleep and unprepared.
37 What I say to you I say to everyone, ‘Be on the alert [stay awake and be continually cautious]!’”
22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

and showing the proper fruits of it. Test and prove yourselves
Do you not yourselves realize and know [thoroughly by an ever-increasing experience] that Jesus Christ is in you—unless you are [counterfeits] disapproved on trial and rejected?

2 Those who think they know something do not yet know anything as they should.
26 He said to him, “What is written in the law? What do you read there?”
27 He answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul,
and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.”
28 And he said to him, “You have given the right answer; do this, and you will live.”
