No One Knows the Day and Hour

Today's bible readings are taken from the following scriptures:

Isaiah 2:1-5
Romans 13:11-14
Matthew 24:36-44
Psalm 122

You can read the other bible scriptures by yourself but we will go through together the Gospel of Matthew chapter 24 verses 36 to 44 for our discussion.

In this particular scripture, it is a continuation of the teachings Jesus taught his disciples about the coming of the Son of Man. It is also sounds like a warning. He said, no one knows when that day and hour will come, neither the angels nor the Son, Father alone knows. The coming of Son of Man will be like what happened in the time of Noah. in the days before the flood people ate and drank, men and women married, up to the very day Noah went into the boat, yet they did not realized what was happening until the flood came and swept them all away.That is how it will be when the Son of Man comes.

At the time two men will be working in a field, one will be taken away and the other will be left behind. two women will be at a mill grinding meal, one will be taken away, the other will be left behind.

Watch out , then, because you do not know what day your Lord will come. if the owner of the house knew the time when the thief would come, you can be sure that he would stay awake and not let the thief break into his house. So then you also must always be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you are not expecting him.

Bible Discussion

In this Gospel of Matthew teaches us and strengthen us to prepare for the coming of Jesus Christ in the Heavenly Clouds of Glory and the Trumpet of the Lord Shall Sound and time shall be no more.

No one knows the coming of the SOn of Man, even the Angels in Heaven and Son of Man do not know the day and the hour. Jesus wants us to be prepared at all times.
Jesus also warned us that do not be fooled by false prophets. Do not be fooled by rumours of happenings. Do not be fooled by miracles by men on earth. Always have faith in Christ Jesus.

Jesus will come at at hour when we are not expecting. He will come at anytime as the scripture says. So how can we be ready for that?
In order for us to be ready, we have to have faith in Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, confess our sins everyday, ask for Lord's Loving kindness and mercy and always longing to see His face one day.

Only then, by the Grace of our Lord and Saviour alone can save us.

Peace be with you.

Amen
