When you awaken at 3 am. Or around that time. The hours of darkness or witching hour as some call it .
Some say the hours somewhere between say 2-4 am ,in particular 3 am the veils of the realms are thinest and this is often the hours the the enemy's works will play out . Often people that are having spiritual warfare ,sleep paralysis ,will have attacks from the demonic kingdom.
Have you ever wondered why?
Its interesting the Jesus died on the cross at 3 pm in the afternoon in the light hours ,after an agonising 3 hours on the cross,and 3 am in the dark hours is when the demonic realm may terrorise.
The hours between 12 midnight and 3 am are the thrid watch. The hours between 3 am - 6 am are called the fourth watch .
( also 6-9 pm is the first watch and 9pm- midnight is the second watch)
Watchmen in the Bible were guards responsible for protecting towns and military installations from surprise enemy attacks and other potential dangers. Ancient Israelite cities often stationed watchmen on high walls or in watchtowers. Their job was to keep watch and warn the townspeople of impending threats.
The Hebrew word translated “watchman” means “one who looks out,” “one who spies,” or “one who watches.” Sometimes watchmen were scouts who looked out for approaching friends as well as enemies.
Each ending of the governed hours would be signalled by the blowing of the trumpet and a change over of the gaurd.
The Bible also refers to watchmen in a spiritual sense. God appointed prophets as spiritual watchmen over the souls of His people: “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me” Ezekiel 33:7
Whats special about the fourth watch is during these peak times 3 am - 6 am ?
So you may think only the enemy does things during these things, however it seems like these are hours of power when it comes the God . Here are some incredible things that happened during the fourth watch
-Jacob wrestled with God and met Him face to face just before entering into his destiny as Israel. Genesis 32:22-31
-Moses led the Israelites across the Red Sea Exodus 14:25-26
-Gideon defeated the Midianites (middle watch), Judges 7:19-24
-Jesus was praying at the garden of Gethsemane when an angel appeared to him the day before he was crucified .
-Peter and Jesus walk on water, Matthew 14:25-26
-The angels appear to the shepherds in the field to announce the birth of the savior. Luke 2:8-14
-Jesus is resurrected from the dead, Matthew 28:1
-The bridegroom woes His bride in the night hours, Song of Solomon, Matthew 25:1-13
-Also the most likely timing for rapture to happen , at the last trump , the fourth watch .
Notice the verse says .....see highlighted areas 1 Corinthians 15:51-52
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
We shall not all sleep ( keep reading to find out the possibility of this meaning....
if your waking up in the thrid or fourth watch...maybe God is calling YOU ?
Its no wonder the enemy will use this time as a distraction with the demonic because , God will often wake people up in these hours to come to you ,and this is the most impactful times for praying .
This is when He needs us for His purposes.
If you awaken during these hours,dont roll over and go back to sleep
Arise brothers and sisters and PRAY.
