Matthew 24:36–51 (ESV)
No One Knows That Day and Hour
36 “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. 37 For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the
Son of Man. 38 For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, 39 and they were unaware until the
flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill;
one will be taken and one left. 42 Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the
night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
45 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his master has set over his household, to give them their food at the proper time? 46 Blessed is that servant
whom his master will find so doing when he comes. 47 Truly, I say to you, he will set him over all his possessions. 48 But if that wicked servant says to himself, ‘My master is delayed,’
49 and begins to beat his fellow servants and eats and drinks with drunkards, 50 the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know 51 and
will cut him in pieces and put him with the hypocrites. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
The more you study God’s Word, the more prepared you are to fend off false teachers. Hear is a short list of failed End Times prophecies: 1874,1914 Charles Taze Russell (Jehovah’s Witness), 1941, 1966 Jehovah’s Witnesses; 1936,
1943, 1972, 1975 Herbert W. Armstrong (Worldwide Church of God); 1962 Jeane Dixon (Astrologer); 1967 Jim Jones (Peoples Temple); 1969 Charles Manson; 1976 Pat Robertson; 1985 Lester Sumrall; 1991 Louis Farrakhan (Nation of Islam); Sept. 6th & 29th,
Oct. 2 1994, March 31 1995, May 21st & Oct. 21st, 2011 Harold Camping; 2014 John Hagee and … many others. This is not a full list, but these people do not understand Jesus’s Words 36 “But concerning
that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.”
I pray: O heavenly Father, you teach that “no
one knows” when the End Times are coming. I do know you promised that it is coming and to always be prepared. Lord help me to trust in Your teachings and to keep my eyes focused on you. Amen.
