Impossible To Ever Know in Advance The Date of Jesus' Return Refuted

(All scriptures KJV unless otherwise noted.)

Please pause to pray for real truth before reading this article. Please open your paperback or hardcover bible in person and read it along with this article. Do not stay stuck in traditional doctrine. Allow the understanding of the bible to be opened unto you.

The very popular & well accepted traditional doctrine is that it is impossible for us to ever know the date in advance of Jesus' second coming or return. This is based upon one verse. As I say all of the time, never base any doctrine upon only one verse. The bible teaches us that we must come out of the immature, weak milk of poor understanding of doctrine by building true doctrine upon many scriptures. Please take the time to read this entire article to fully & carefully examine the weight of the evidence.

Isaiah 28:9-10 "Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.
For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:"

Let's start with the one verse that people use to claim that we cannot ever know in advance the date of Jesus' second coming.

Matthew 24:36 "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only".

Did you read the above scriptures in your personal paperback/hardback bible today or just only on this website?
If only online, I encourage you to please open your bible and read these verses both on our website and in your bible. There is power in reading the real bible. Also, did you pray before beginning to read about this specific subject today? If not, I encourage you to take the time now to pray for understanding of truth.

"Knoweth" is in the current tense, but it was written over 2,000 years ago. It was not written this year. Jesus was speaking specifically to the people directly in front of him 2,000 years ago. In this specific verse, He was not speaking to people in the future. It doesn't say that we "will never know" or "impossible to eventually know". When Jesus spoke those words, at that very moment, no man or angel knew the date of Jesus' return. Even Jesus in the flesh did not yet know the day that He would eventually return. Jesus chose to not bring that knowledge with himself in the flesh when He came as God in the flesh. Instead, He chose to empty himself and humble himself as the lowly flesh of man.

Philippians 2:5-8 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

Have you ever received a wedding invitation that did not have a declared date? Will the Groom know the date of the wedding, but the bride will not know?

Matthew 24:43 "But know this, that if the good man 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".

Philippians 2:7 NASB "But emptied himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men."

So He didn't know the date of his second coming when He was in the flesh because He humbled himself as a servant. But now He is in Heaven and He is seated in glory & He is God. Surely He now remembers what He planned from before the foundations of the world!

Isaiah 46:10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

The Battle of Armageddon (Day of Jesus' Return) is The 1,335th Day After The Strong Appearance of The Antichrist

Daniel 12:1 "And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book." (The traditional teaching is that the archangel Michael stands up to protect God's people. However the context shows that's not true! Notice that when he stands up, the great tribulation comes.)

Compare Matt.24:21 "For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be."

The words "stand up" also means to step aside. To be removed. To move out of the way to allow the Great Tribulation to begin. This is the same event of 2 Thessalonians 2
:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

In the bible, we see that angels hold things back, restrain, and also release, as directed by The Creator. The archangel Michael stands guard at The Throne of God in the Temple of God in Heaven. He will stand up, "be taken out of the way", so that the antichrist is released & allowed to manifest his self as god in the Temple of God as is stated in 2 Thes.2
:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day (of Jesus' return) shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Therefore the traditional doctrine of Jesus' coming before the antichrist is totally wrong. The traditional doctrine of a pre-tribulation rapture is absolutely wrong. The antichrist will come first, in a fake coming of Jesus in the strong delusion that shall deceive the majority of the world! And also the traditional doctrine of the church being taken out of the way, is wrong. Who is taken out of the way, according to Daniel 12 is Michael the archangel so that the antichrist can manifest himself for the great tribulation. Now let's return to Daniel 12.

Daniel 12
:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
(At the end of the great tribulation. Verse 1 occurs 30 days before the great tribulation. Verse 2 occurs at the end of the great tribulation. You must read the entire bible.)
3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
(Notice that the book is sealed until the end. We are now in the end. So now the seals are coming off the book and things are being revealed & knowledge is increased. What we didn't know before, we can now know!)
5 Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river.
6 And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?
7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
(Notice that the antichrist is given power over the Saints, thus proving that the pre-tribulation rapture is a lie. "A time" refers to one year, "times" refers to 2 years, and "half" refers to half an year. For a total of 3.5 years which is also cleared stated as 1,260 days or 42 months in Rev.11:2-3. Please pause to read those verses in your own bible at home.)
8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?
9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
(Two events occur at the very beginning of the count down of the time line. The daily is removed and the abomination of desolation occurs. Both of these occur on day number 1 of the total 1,335 days in the next verse. The abomination of desolation is the manifestation of the antichrist sitting in the Seat of God in the Temple of God in Heaven which is totally blasphemous and is the greatest abomination that could occur. The word "sacrifice" was added into scripture. That's why it's in italics in your KJV bible. The "daily" actually refers to the daily guarding of the Seat of God. Michael is commanded to walk away to allow the evil to manifest to the entire world so that the end time can finally come. From Rev. 11 & other scriptures we know that the great tribulation is only 1,260 days, not 7 years. It's horrible how traditional denominations have brainwashed everyone to believe things not written in the scriptures. They wrongly interpret Daniel 9 & as 1,260 days plus 1,260 days when there is no need to add these numbers. The 42 months is the exact same time of the 1,260 days! There is nothing to indicate that they are different time frames. So the great tribulation is only 1,260 days, but Dan.12:11 mentions an additional 30 days, bringing a count to 1,290. This is because there are 30 days of fleeing before the great tribulation. Please pause to read in your bibles, Matt.24:16 & Rev.12:7-17 & also realize that everyone who is truly saved is, spiritually speaking, a resident of Judea. Romans 2:28-29 & notice our reservation to live in Jerusalem/Judea in Rev.21:1-3. So from the time of the strong delusion until the great tribulation is 30 days of fleeing. Then you have 1,260 days of great tribulation, totaling 1,290 days.)
12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
(Here, there is an additional 45 days after the end of the great tribulation. Blessed is he that comes to the 1,335th day because if we read the entire bible, we understand that's when Jesus comes on the day of the Battle of Armageddon.)

Can You Count?

Can you count from 1 to 10? What about from 1 to 1,335? Most people can. At least with the help of a calendar. Why are these exact calculations written in scripture if it's impossible to count the days from the abomination of desolation until Jesus comes? Nothing was written in the scripture in vain, for no reason. There is a reason these calculations were written in scripture. And it wasn't written for Daniel's time. Those numbers were useless to Daniel. Those numbers were also useless to Jesus and the apostles of the first century A.D. But they are not useless to the end time generation who would be alive when these verses are actually fulfilled! When we see the strong delusion, of the demon, fallen angel antichrist in the sky, looking like he is god in the sky, and all of the world worships him, they will be the wicked who do not understand. But the wise in Jesus shall understand! Please do not go any further in this article until you answer the question: Why does the bible tell us the exact number of days between events, and the exact number of days of the great tribulation, if it's impossible for us to ever come to know the end date? Can we not count 1, 2, 3, ...?

Are The Groom & Bride Ignorant of Their Own Marriage?

Have you ever received a wedding invitation that did not have a declared date? Will the Groom not know the date of his own wedding? People claim that even Jesus doesn't know the date of His own marriage supper! Will the bride also not know? Will both the Groom & the bride not know the date of their own wedding? Nonsense!

Prophets Are Always Told Secrets in Advance

Amos 3:7 "Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets."

Is Jesus a Thief To His Own People & To His Own Bride?

Matthew 24:43 "But know this, that if the good man 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".

1 Thes.5:4 "But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief"!

Traditional doctrine claims that Jesus is a thief to His own people! And to His own bride! That's so blasphemous! He will come as a thief to the wicked who are not watching and eagerly waiting for him. But He will not come unexpectedly to those who waiting and watching for him!

If I See The Sword Coming & Do Not Warn Ahead of Time

Most people claim I'm wrong to proclaim the date of Jesus' return. But Ezekiel 33 tells me that if I see the sword coming & do not blow the trumpet, then the people's blood is on my hands. God has always sent prophets ahead of time before major prophetic events. He even told Jonah to tell Nineveh that the destruction would occur in 45 days. But the people fasted & repented & thus the destruction was delayed until they went back to their old ways again. But today, we do not see and will not see entire cities or entire nations repent until after major prophetic destruction comes. I do not see any verse in the bible that says that the people's blood is on my hands if I proclaim a false prophecy, although of course that would be a sin and would bring damnation upon myself. Many years ago, Jesus told me in front of many people "Many people's lives depend on what you do". For the sake of the people, I cannot risk not blowing the trumpet. I would rather risk being proclaimed a false prophet than to risk the death of many people on my watch.

Ezekiel 33:6 "But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

Do you disagree that we will eventually come to know the date of Jesus' return? Why don't you fast about the evidence that I have presented?
