Part 12 – Unknown & Unprepared

Matthew 24:36-42 — But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” No one knows when Christ will return and sadly, most will not be ready. These are the key themes in this next section of Jesus’ famous Olivet Discourse. Jesus likens the days before His return to the days before Noah’s flood — people will have the same careless and indifferent attitude towards spiritual things. He also speaks of the suddenness and finality of what will happen when He comes, and in that light He exhorts us to be watchful.
