Based on Scripture? The Second Coming statement causing confusion and deception in the household of God is, No one knows about that day or hour.
Jesus made this statement about the exact time of His return during the Olivet Discourse. This expression has been incorrectly interpreted by many, thinking that it means we will be unable to determine the general time of the Second Coming.
The statement is clear and precise. It says, No one knows about that day or hour. It does not say, no one knows the general time of the Coming (THE YEAR). As a matter of fact Scripture does indicate that we will be aware of His Coming and we will not be surprised, as you see the Day approaching (Hebrews 10:25). Paul also said, But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief (1 Thessalonians 5:4).
Repeatedly, Jesus told of the increasing deception that will come in the last days. He commanded us to watch and stay alert so we would not be deceived by the world and get caught off guard. This is what He said during the Olivet Discourse.
Noah with the unbelievers the people, they and them. Noah knew when that day was coming, God actually told him when to get in the ark. However, the world was caught completely by surprise even though Noah preached to them, 2 Peter 2:5.
Here is what He said,
No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come. It's like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with his assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch.
Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back--whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. What I say to you, I say to everyone: 'Watch!' (Mark 13:32-37)
Is that a real Nostradmas quatrain or one of the made up ones?
Actually, He doesn’t want to join this crowd (as you say). He wants us to join Him. Most won’t, but it’s an open invitation.
Interesting, and kinda spooky.
I don’t see how that would matter since He already knows what people are going to do.
It sounds like Arianna Huffington will turn against him! ;)
Aren’t they the same?
Me too, He already knows everything I’m going to do.
OK, you actually made me laugh out loud!
The media told us he took office yesterday at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:2b
If knew He would return in (for example) 2387, then you would ... what? Not buy zero-coupon Babylon 5 bonds when they go on sale? Short the Euro against the Ruble? Get a manicure?
Roger that ol’Timer
He’ll be right on time. I think it will be on Nisan 1, 2016
