But of that day and hour knoweth no man...

Matthew 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

This is the mantra of Pre-Trib preachers and Pre-Trib believers. No man knoweth the day nor the hour of the Pre-Trib Rapture!

Just read those two verses a couple of times until you see what it really says. Let the Bible speak to you instead.

Heaven and earth shall pass away... and no man knoweth the day AND hour.

Heaven and earth shall pass away... and no man knoweth the day AND hour.

Heaven and earth shall pass away... and no man knoweth the day AND hour.

Jesus was actually saying ... no man knoweth the day and hour WHEN Heaven and Earth shall pass away. NOT when the Second Coming will take place.

Jesus did NOT say ... no man knoweth the day and hour of the Rapture.

After this jumped up and slapped me in the face the other day I've come to the conclusion that Pre-Trib Rapture preachers and Pre-Trib believers are just plain stupid and gullible. All we like sheep are led astray because we don't bother opening our eyes and looking to see what the word of God actually says.

This makes sense. When you look at the outline of Matthew it just falls into place.

The disciples (Mark 13:3 Peter, James, John and Andrew) asked Jesus... Matthew 24:3 ... when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

In Matthew 24:4-28 Jesus told them what to look for to know when these things shall be.

In Matthew 24:29-34 Jesus gave them the sign(s) of his coming.

In Matthew 24:35-51;25:1-46 Jesus gave them parables concerning the end of the world.

In verse 35 Jesus says "Heaven and earth shall pass away..." . In verse 36 Jesus says "But of that day and hour knoweth no man".

So, Jesus does not know the day and hour when heaven and earth shall pass away. But he does know that heaven and earth will pass away one day within an hour.

Jesus told us "when" these things shall be. Then he gave us the signs of His Second Coming. Then he told us he doesn't know when the end of the world will be... BUT he did give parables concerning the end of the world.

He said, "before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage...". That will not be what they are doing when God pours out his wrath. What happened to those who were eating and drinking and getting married? They were taken away by the flood

Two men will be in the field. One will be taken... as in the flood.

Two women will be grinding in the mill. One will be taken... as in the flood.

Where did the people in Noah's day go when they were taken by the flood? They went to hell.

Jesus gave those who are going to go through the millennium parables to read because there will be no signs. The end of the world is when Jesus comes as a thief in the night. Jesus does not come as a thief in the night at the Second Coming. What thief announces himself with a shout and a trumpet? What thief reveals himself for all to see? The parables are warnings for those in the millennium to keep alert... to be faithful.

God wants us to know when Jesus is coming back. He gave Daniel the timeline. Imagine if Daniel told us about the 70th week without mentioning the days... 1260, 1335 and 1290?

I don't think there is going to be a new temple built. God would not have Jesus denying unbelievers build him a new temple. Scratch that off the list.

Pre-Trib Rapture believers are working for Satan. Everything is a secret they say... you can't know anything. You can't know for sure when the Rapture will be. You can't know when the Covenant is made. You can't know when the Sacrifices have started. You can't know when the Abomination of Desolation has taken place. To them EVERYTHING will be a secret. Even the Rapture will be a secret they say. Oh, they are looking for signs but they are going to be looking with their eyes closed when they actually take place.

This is an election year. People are going to go more nuts than they did during the last election. If Trump gets elected and keeps his promise to bring peace to Ukraine and Russia once he is elected then that gets my vote for the Covenant with Many. We will know once wars, famines, pestilences and death approaches epic proportions.

And the sacrifices? I think they will start after about 200+ days into Daniel's 70th Week not to please God but rather an attempt by unbelievers to appease an angry God.

All of this may start next year. Right now we have to survive this election year and see what happens in January.

The next blog post is about Matthew 24:14-15. It opens things up more than anybody has ever imagined.
