(1) Thom 21:1-4

Mary said to Jesus, "What are your disciples like?" 2 He said, They are like little children living in a field that is not theirs. 3 When the owners of the field come, they will say, "Give us back our field." 4 They take off their clothes in front of them in order to give it back to them, and they return their field to them. 5 For this reason I say, if the owners of a house know that a thief is coming, they will be on guard before the thief arrives, and will not let the thief break into their house (their domain) and steal their possessions. 6 As for you, then, be on guard against the world. 7 Prepare yourselves with great strength, so the robbers can't find a way to get to you, for the trouble you expect will come. 8 Let there be among you a person who understands. 9 When the crop ripened, he came quickly carrying a sickle and harvested it. 10 Anyone here with two good ears had better listen! [Complete Gospels]
