Mt 24:36 Of that day and hour knoweth no [man]. How foolish then to be figuring out the time of the Lord's coming.

Discussion for Matthew 24:36

  • Shirley for verse 36
    No one knows the time nor the hour! To those who are not believers is it not better to believe than not,than later find out after you are left behind wondering where have we gone to? I beg you, my friend pick up The Holy Bible and begin to read, then make your decision. Simple as that! Seek out your own salvation...no one can do it for you!
  • Kennedy akuno for verse 36
    Psalms.25 14 The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him and he will shew them his covenant. 1Thes.5 1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child and they shall not escape. 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others but let us watch and be sober.
  • MockingBird for verse 36
    We know neither the day nor the hour of the return of our Lord. Jesus does not even know nor the angels. We neither know the day nor the hour that will be our last. We can know the nearness of Christ 's return. We will also know the nearness of our last day upon this earth. We are to be prepared at all time for the return of Jesus Christ. I need to make sure I am in my appointed place when Christ returns. The disciples were told where to meet the Lord when He was to be taken up to be with the Father in the 1st chpt. of Acts . They had an appointment. So we we have an appointment to keep.
  • AMEN JAY for verse 36
    In this regards people of GOD lets keep up with our good works, so we will be judge right on that day of THY LORD GOD, oh yes surely that day is coming pretty soon
  • Could this also bear witness to mans life on earth? I understand accidents happen, yet could this Scripture also be referenced to a persons untimely death?
  • Wendi Erickson for verse 36
    Amos gives us further light on this for us in 3 5 Surely God will revele nothing but through His servants the prophets.
