Scripture says we won’t know the hour. Which is why Jesus in the parable of the women and the oil said to be ready for you do not know when the master comes.

For many of us the final day will come at the moment we die.

The bible clearly states when Jesus will come back to earth which can be found in the book of Daniel.

Jesus returns at the end of Daniels 70th week to save Israel and destroy the armys gathered in the valley of Meggido. His return is also talked about in the old testament in Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Zechariah, to name a few.

Jesus said in Matt CH 24 that when you see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the Holy Place (whoever reads, let him understand) Then let those in Judea flee to the mountains....

This did not happen when Jerusalem and the Temple were destroyed in AD 70 because verse 21 of Matt CH24 says “then there will be tribulation such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor shall ever be. 22 And unless those days were shortened no flesh would be saved...

So from the time that the “abomination of Desolation” until Jesus return is 3 1/2 yrs (1260 days). That is the only time we will know the time of Jesus return.

There is another event that has no preceding signs. It is called the “transfiguration” or “rapture”. That event can happen at any time. Check out Pauls letter to the Thessolonians, he had to reassure them that their loved ones who had died as martyers would not miss out on that event. Paul even said that they will precede them in the order of events. In I Thess. CN 4 verses13-17, which clearly has us meeting Jesus in the air and him and us returning to heaven. This is not the second coming which has many signs and a time line leading up to his coming back to the earth.
