We’ve all seen the signs, heard the news, and seen it in the paper. But do we believe it? Many people may be scared into repentance because, what if Jesus really does come back today? But what those people don’t know is that only God knows when that will happen.
It is hard to understand why a person would convince himself that he could calculate the exact date of the Apocalypse when in-fact he has tried and failed in the past. The Watchtower society has done the same thing. Time and time again they predicted the return of the Messiah, but every time they are proven wrong and made to look like fools.
There is a scripture in the Bible that states that no man knows the day or the hour that Christ returns. In fact it states that Jesus will return like a thief in the night, its going to be unexpected and startling. I’ve never had a thief in the house, day or night, but I am convinced that they don’t send you a memo letting you know when they will be coming. You just have to be alert and ready for it.
To be honest, there is no way of knowing exactly when Jesus will come back, but we know that He will. When He does we wont have time to question it.
