A Jewish Temple Chief Priest Who Comes as a Thief in The Night for Those Who Sleep & Without Christ

Revelation 16:15 {AV version}
“Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed [is] he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.”

When the Hebrew apostle (John) wrote the above verse in Revelation he was writing in terms of Torah. Because in Torah is where the story of the Chief Priest of the temple, who would return to the temple at night, comes from. He was known to regularly return to the temple at night to check on temple guards whether they were asleep or not on their watch.

The Chief priest would go and pick up a lit coal or several and quietly light their garments on fire, catching them asleep and thus running through the temple grounds naked as they had to throw off their burning garments in terror.

It’s this story that originates from the Torah for which Yeshua and also the apostle John relates to in their description of the return of the Messiah as a thief in the night to those who sleep and reject God’s grace and salvation. The Messiah is the true Chief Priest who has once and for all became the final sacrifice and now sits on the throne with the Father advocating for us continually!
