Matthew 24:36 - (New International Version) "But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father .- Here in the U.S. a man publicly announced that the world was supposed to end on May 21st. It seemed to me that few gave him much attention, and obviously he was wrong, but he made national news and some money. Many people and even some "Christian groups" have claimed there are clues in the Bible and predicted when God would end the world, and they spent large sums of money and other resources in preparation for it. The Bible tells us what the signs will be and to keep watch, but it also makes it clear that no man knows that day or hour. In 1 Thessalonians 5:2 we are told - for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.- I have never heard of a thief who announces when he is coming to break in. It seems foolish to me and makes me wonder why some think that they can predict something that God keeps to himself. He made the world and he will decide when to end it. Whatever you call it, the rapture, the last day, the day of the Lord or the end of the world etc, it will come and we all will be called to account. Nothing we can do will save us, only Jesus Christ can do that because he is our only Savior from the sins that we all have in the eyes of God. No man can ever predict the last day and we should beware of those that do.What About Jesus?
