That's not about knowing the day in advance.
"Being awake" means being ready for it when it comes.
"Being asleep" means not being ready for it when it comes.
And he's talking about his return to judge the world, which is why being on the wrong side of it will be like the sudden invasion of a thief.

I thought that passage in Revelations was telling people to be ready, because they wont know when the day is coming.
Matthew 24 says:
But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. 37 For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, 39 and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one left. 42 Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
Peace with UAE, Bahrain and more Middle Eastern Peace with Israel. That is a indication we are near.
1Th 5:2-3 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
You might narrow it down to a year but even that is questionable. As he did say Times and a year is a time.
Mt 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
Mr 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
Ac 1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.
