Awake
Isaiah 24:7-11
7
The new wine mourns, The vine decays, All the merry-hearted sigh.
8
The gaiety of tambourines ceases, The noise of revelers stops, The gaiety of the harp ceases.
9
They do not drink wine with song; Strong drink is bitter to those who drink it.
10
The city of chaos is broken down; Every house is shut up so that none may enter.
11
There is an outcry in the streets concerning the wine; All joy turns to gloom. The gaiety of the earth is banished.
Amos 6:3-7
3
Do you put off the day of calamity, And would you bring near the seat of violence?
4
Those who recline on beds of ivory And sprawl on their couches, And eat lambs from the flock And calves from the midst of the stall,
5
Who improvise to the sound of the harp, [And] like David have composed songs for themselves,
6
Who drink wine from sacrificial bowls While they anoint themselves with the finest of oils, Yet they have not grieved over the ruin of Joseph.
7
Therefore, they will now go into exile at the head of the exiles, And the sprawlers' banqueting will pass away.
Luke 21:34-36
34
"Be on guard, so that your hearts will not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day will not come on you suddenly like a trap;
35
for it will come upon all those who dwell on the face of all the earth.
36
"But keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man."
Romans 13:11-14
11
[Do] this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed.
12
The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.
13
Let us behave properly as in the day, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual promiscuity and sensuality, not in strife and jealousy.
14
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to [its] lusts.
