I thought that passage in Revelations was telling people to be ready, because they wont know when the day is coming.
You are completely right that we do not know the day or the hour that it is coming. To me, Rev 11 points to Rev2 and 3, which talk about it being
quick "And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted."...."Remember therefore from whence thou art
fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou
repent."... "Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth."....."I will come on thee as a
thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee."
Even the Verse to the House of David talks about patience, and says that it is coming quickly "Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also
will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth 11 Behold, I come quickly: hold
that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown."
Then at the end of Revelation 3, the urgency is summed up with one "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the
door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." It is as though he is reminding us again that he is at our door.
