Eschatology

 

 

12. I want to ask you a question on the second coming of Christ. Jesus said that no one knows about that day or hour; does that mean that instead somebody knows the month or the year or the century?

 

 

Of course not.

Why did Jesus command us to be on guard, to be alert, and to watch (Mark 13:33,37 - NIV)? And why, before He was taken up into heaven, did He say to His disciples: “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority” (Acts 1:7 – NKJV)? And why did Paul say to the Thessalonians: “But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night” (1 Thessalonians 5:1-2)? It is evident why, because no one knows when the time is.

Therefore, as for the date of the return of the Lord, nobody knows about the hour, or the day, or the month, or the year, or the century. Let no one deceive you with empty words.
