1 Thessalonians 5:4-5 (NLT)
But you aren’t in the dark about these things, dear brothers and sisters, and you won’t be surprised when the day of the Lord comes like a thief.
For you are all children of the light and of the day; we don’t belong to darkness and night.
Christians Should not be taken by Surprise when Christ appears .
True believers are not in darkness. Darkness in the Bible always refers to the moral state of unbelievers.
Darkness is the absence of light. In the dark you cannot see.
Morally it is sin that blinds a person, both who is unsaved and also a child of God.
The phrase is saying that true Christians can see and know the Light or spiritual truth.
Finally brethren, let us choose to walk in the light and to be prepared for the Lord’s return.
“DON’T BE LEFT BEHIND”
