nobody knows dates dear, Jesus Christ did not even know when the end was coming, so if the son of God did not know, then nobody knows, however that big dome built on Solomons temple, Jesus spoke of it, he calls it desolation on the most holy ground..

It is clear that timeing is important to God. He established an "appointed time of the end". It is also clear that Revelation is all about time. God gave us years,(spg. eq. to spg. eq.), months (new moons), weeks, (from sunday to end of sabbath) and days (24 hours from sundown to sundown) If you follow those times carefully, (from the bible) you will see that "something" could happen in 2012.

#1 I find it interesting how one text is so frequently quoted as a excuse not to know the time that Christ will return. It is easily understood when you know how the process which led up to the marriage worked. The bridegroom, after receiving permission from the brides father to marry, would go to his family's house to add on a room. The compleation of the room had no effect on the time of the marrage, only the father knew the time, but would reveal the time to his son when he knew it was appropriate.

#2 The bride's one requirement was to be ready when the bridegroom came. This complicated things, because the bridegroom did not know the time. When the father revealed the time to his son, the son would tell his servants who then would tell the bridesmaids. The bridesmaids then went and prepared the bride for the wedding. When the bridegroom came to the door the bride could immediately go with him. If the bride was not ready when the bridegroom came to her door, there would never be a wedding.

#3 Revelation 1:1-3 records the revealing of the time to the Son and the revealing to the servants. The bridesmaids (Mat.25) thought they were the bride. Notice who it is that is delaying his coming, it is not the Father, it is the Bridegroom. The Bridegroom cannot delay something that He doesn't know the time of.

Why are you worrying? Jesus is coming. No man knows when. I do believe it's a ways off. Get busy, obey God in everything. Get close to Him, enjoy Him, and wait on Him.

Everyday is a step into eternity for everyone. We all need to watch, pray, and be ready daily no matter what happens. If you are still alive, you have time to grow in the Holy Spirit and Bible to endure whatever comes in your personal situations. If the pre-trib guys are wrong, we'd better prepare for tribulation and setting a good testimony for Christ like the early Church.

Mike ... Those things were in YOUR post.
If Jesus said, that no-one knows except His father, how can you presume to know when it will happen.
I am not angry, merely showing that you are making yourself to have God's knowledge.
That might make Him angry, but not me.

"Are we any closer to the tribulation going full force then we were last year?"
Lol...I always find questions like that humorous. We don't even bother to READ the OT, and then try to understand NT references without any understanding of covenantal judgment. Are we any closer? No, actually we are further away from the "tribulation" than we were last year. I'll leave it as an exercise to the reader to figure that out. Start with Daniel and Jeremiah.

Alan, those old tactics no longer work with me, using my name then attacking your own answer.
It's not orthodox, either.
Anger motivates you, it's always there, ready to pounce. It doesn't move me, neither does your witness.
---Mike on 1/7/08|
Mike: You quote Jesus:
"No-one knows the end except my Father in Heaven"
and then say
"We are indeed in the times"
Do you not see that you are contradicting what Jesus said?
---alan_of_UK on 1/7/08|
The radio and TV preachers have been predicting an imminent world tribulation since I first listened to them around 1955. I am still waiting. It would be more productive to prepare for our own deaths rather than for some nebulous future tribulation.

You may find it interesting that if the end-time time periods are correctly positioned the year 2012 is there.

Iam a prophet of God.You know what it says about the false ones.Are you as much in
knowledge about what is said about the true Prophets?This is my prophecy.The NEXT
MAJOR OCCURRENCE FOR HUMANKIND IS A SPIRITUAL INCREASE OF KNOWLEDGE.It shall divide science from spirituality.It shall
challenge the HEART and MIND theory of
world concepts.It shall fulfill prophecy.
It shall bring to naught,the things that are.

We are on the brink of a major world crisis.
It is later that most believers realise.
---duke on 1/4/08|
That is it. It will continue on and on worst not better. And no one knows that time as Jesus said so clearly. No one knows the end except my Father in Heaven.We are indeed in the times.What do you all think about this.
---Mike on 1/4/08|
Get ready for what this year is about to bring.I believe we are so close to the coming of the Lord and the rapture of the Church,that I would not be surprised if we do not see 2009.When ye see all these things begin to come to pass,then look up,lift up your heads,your redemption draweth nigh.
---Tommy on 1/3/08|
Yes ... One year closer.
We may mow be 9967 years away rather then the 9968 years away we were last year.
There has always been evil ... and for centuries people have had to live through it.
---alan_of_UK on 1/3/08|
Jesus says, "'All these are the beginning of sorrows.'" (Matthew 24:8) To me, this means, "You ain't seen nothin', yet" > God is not impressed, so why should you be? Just consider what Jesus went through on Calvary > **He's*** not impressed.
Make sure this world's evil can't have power to hurt you or turn your love cold (Matthew 24:12). "And who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good?" (1 Peter 3:13)
