"Be wary of false prophets. I don't think Christians should be predicting the second coming...”He shall come as a thief in the night.” "

Yup. The prophetic writings of scripture regarding eschatology (end-times), is for the benefit of those actually suffering through those times, meant as a hope for those in what may feel like hopeless situations, as they look BACK and see fulfillments.

When Christ returns he will be pleased with those who are about his business and displeased with the "Eschatological Argumentation Society."

You are in-correct...

Have you read Matthew 24?

“Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 47 Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48 But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ 49 and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. 50 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. 51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Who is Jesus speaking of in the Parable of the Foolish and Wise Virgins?

You have a lamp, but no oil in it......

Prophetic Scripture is also meant as a warning to people for what is going to happen to this world and those on this earth during the Tribulation.

It is meant as a warning so that people can prepare by coming to Christ for salvation and being counted as worthy to escape what is coming on the earth.

God has done us the favor of telling us ahead of time about the judgment He is going to send on this earth. Many people are saved after hearing about the details of how this age is going to end.

It's not just for those who will be here during the Tribulation.
