What don’t they understand?

Tomorrow, of course, there is rumored to be the end of the world. I always marvel at both these “prophets” and the people who believe them. What part of “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone,” don’t they understand?

Given what the Lord has said on the subject, I’ve often thought that the one thing you can know for sure, when people make such predictions is that it WON’T be that day.

That being said, however, the Lord COULD come today or Sunday for the whole world — we don’t know, remember — or He could come for any one of us individually. That’s why I always say…

See you tomorrow, Lord willing.

    If the Lord does come back tomorrow or any day predicted by man, it will only be coincidence and not brilliant calculation on the part of these so-called modern day prophets. Good post! See you soon….Lord willing!

    I do believe that the time is near and that we should always be prepared. Modern man is in for a big surprise if he thinks he can outdo God’s Word. Failure to accept that He is the Master of the Universe is one big error in itself.
    I feel secure that no prophet can override or change what has already been written by our Creator.
    With all the deception of this world, one would think that our belief in Him would be firm and secure. Sadly the majority will only believe what lies heavily on their hearts. His Word is unknown by so many and because it makes them feel weak and inferior to think that they are not in control of their surroundings.
    I pray that we, as Christians will continue to stand firm in our belief, as we can clearly see the big picture as we focus only on Him. We truly understand what Family really is as we pray and love our brothers and sisters, knowing that they will be with us eternally as we prepare to go home and live in the mansion that has been prepared for us.
