“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but My Father only.”
How could Jesus make it more clear then that His return is imminent? Jesus clearly stated that no one, except for the Father knew when He was returning (the Rapture).
You have probably heard of many people saying that “this is the time when Jesus is coming back!”
“How did you find it?” You might ask.
“Oh, it was all in the Bible.” They might answer back, with teetering confidence.
Well, you can say right back, “Matthew 24:36:
“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”
“Then if any man shall say unto you, ‘Lo, here is Christ, or there;’ believe it not.”
“Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.”
That is in the Bible too!”
They just might be stumped!
I only see two purposes in people suggesting when Jesus is going to return.
1. “Since I say Jesus is going to return today, then He can’t return today so I’m controlling God!”
2. “If Jesus does return on this day then the Bible isn’t reliable so then the Tribulation and everything else predicted won’t happen!” Pretty contradictory isn’t it?
I don’t understand why someone wants to even attempt to put a date on the return of Jesus but I guess that is up to them, but you can safely say that date placing for the Rapture isn’t “all in the Bible.”
