Who Knows The Day And Hour?

Numerous religious misleaders and false "prophets" throughout the centuries have claimed to know when Christ's return will happen (some even claimed that it has already happened - see the Fact Finder question below to understand why Christ's return will be no "secret" to anyone in the world). But all were proved wrong. Why? What was their error? Answer: They claimed to know something that only God knows. Even Christ doesn't know yet.

"24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 24:40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 24:41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left." (Matthew 24:36-41 KJV)

"But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only"

What therefore should we be doing while we wait? And what if Christ did return "now"? (see Could Christ Return Tonight?).

The Holy Scriptures

"24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 24:43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

24:45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 24:46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 24:47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. 24:48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; 24:49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 24:50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 24:51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." (Matthew 24:42-50 KJV)

Christ's return will happen with all the world to see, after the 42-month ministry of the "two witnesses" has been completed (see When Will Christ Return?). Then, on that day, will be the first resurrection (see When Will You Be Judged?).

"4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep [see What Happens When You Die?], that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God [see Christ's Feast of Trumpets; listen also to the Sermon The Feast of Trumpets: Birthday Of The Church from our Sermons page]: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, To Meet The Lord In The Air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words." (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 KJV)
