At 6:00 p.m., I was at a friend’s 4th birthday party. We had castle carrot cake. There were alot of gifts in pink and with kittens.
But, I didn’t see anyone floating away. We were all still there after 6:00 p.m., and, as a matter of fact, a few more came to the party.
So, I guess this wasn’t the day and the hour as someone had predicted.
Of course, I didn’t put much stock in that prediction, which you knew if you followed my tweets or facebook stati about it.
Maybe Jesus was right after all…
But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. (Matthew 24:36 ESV)
Perhaps, instead of trying to figure out the day and the hour again (using some awesome math skills) (and being wrong again) or listening to those who do want to calculate the date, all followers of Jesus would be better off living each day in Christ, proclaiming the good news of Jesus and strengthening the saints.
That way, we’ll be ready, whenever the end comes.
Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. (Matthew 24:44 ESV)
