27 Things Jesus Said We Can Look Forward To

Thus saith the Lord …

No one would ever be able to predict the day or hour of His return. “In Mark 13:32, Jesus had been teaching His disciples about His return,” teaches Hess, “and says, ‘But concerning that day or that hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.’ Luke records it this way, ‘You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect’ (Luke 12:40). Jesus told His disciples even He didn’t know exactly when He would return. This is fascinating! At this point in history, God the Father knew the exact number of years, months, days and seconds until Christ would return and Jesus didn’t. Therefore, it cannot be figured out. It is extreme arrogance to claim to know something Jesus didn’t. Also, Jesus applied this truth to their lives, ‘Be ready.’ Jesus didn’t know if He would return in their lifetimes, but His instructions to them are His instructions to us almost 2,000 years later. Get yourself ready for my return, leave nothing undone.”
