The Lord had been impressing a sense of urgency that there weren’t enough watchmen on the wall.
And in the fourth watch of the night – The Jews anciently divided the night into three parts of four hours each, usually called watches. The first of these watches is mentioned in Lamentations 2:19, the middle watch in Judges 7:19, and the morning watch in Exodus 14:24. In the time of our Saviour they divided the night into four watches, the fourth having been introduced by the Romans. These watches consisted of three hours each. The first commenced at six and continued until nine; the second from nine to twelve; the third from twelve to three; and the fourth from three to six. The first was called evening; the second midnight; the third cock-crowing; the fourth morning, Mark 13:35. It is probable that the term watch was given to each of these divisions from the practice of placing sentinels around the camp in time of war, or in cities, to watch or guard the camp or city; and that they were at first relieved three times in the night, but under the Romans four times. It was in the last of these watches, or between three and six in the morning, that Jesus appeared to the disciples, so that he had spent most of the night alone on the mountain in prayer.
We are all called to be Watchmen, constantly on the alert in the spirit, like shepherds watching over their sheep. In this season there is an increasing need for people to walk in the fullness of this portion of their call.
Note: The oil has a pale blue-ish hue to represent the sky and air as the watchman stands on the wall.
