No One Knows the Day or the Hour
“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” Matthew 24:36
Anybody who sets a date for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ may be crossing the line of blasphemy. The Bible teaches very clearly and plainly, and our Lord taught, that no one knows the time—no one.
Just before our Lord was taken up into glory the disciples asked Him, “Lord, wilt Thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? 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” (Acts 1:6-7). No one knows the day when Jesus Christ is coming again, but what a glorious day that will be!
Read 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. What encouragement do you need to share with someone today?
