In Matthew 24:36, God tells us that only he knows.
Then why do some people and some religions spend so much time and so much effort in trying to figure out when the world is ending? Prediction after prediction, translating sign after sign, memorizing Revelations – what’s it all about?
It’s pretty clear that God knows and he’s not telling.
If he thought it was important, he would be telling us. The Bible is jam-packed full of all of the important things God wants us to know.
Some of the things that are really important he repeats over and over such as loving him with all of our hearts, minds and souls and loving our neighbors as ourselves. Jesus said these 2 commandments are what it’s all about. Short, clear, to the point.
It’s not about signs, predictions or weird creatures with eyes all over their bodies. It’s not about the end of the world, it’s about loving God right now with everything we’ve got. So how are we doing?
