I enjoy reading your writings, how do you explain that Jesus himself said that no man will know the hour?????
Those verses are not decribing the physical return of Jesus Christ by itself, it is a dual meaning prophecy and it is fulfilled physically and
The truth is God's people enter into judgement in this age by choice (receive full baptism and the laying on of hands by the ministry), from that
choice forward God's people are worked with, molded and fashioned over a lifetime of choice, followed by repentance followed by more choices, until
in the end of ones life God can come to say what He said to Abraham "now I know you". Only those who enter into the Body by choice are judged in
this age, judgement for the majority of mankind is reserved for the second life.
This means now God the Father has judged the individual mind to the degree that God knows (trusts) the individual will always repent of sin when it is
reavealed in them and always rely on God for truth and guidence. The day this moment occurs in the life of a member of the Body of Christ/Church of
God/Temple of God is not known, nor will it ever be known. For if you knew which day your judgement would fall, you would not live everyday according
to the laws of God. This judgement results in either a sealing for the future ressurection of the 144,000 or not, if not then the individual will
require a second life to finish the work in them.
"no ones know the day or the hour when the son of man comes" is a spiritual dual meaning; it does mean literally no one will know up to a certain
point in time, however it really means in spirit and in truth that no one in the Body will know the moment in time during their life in which God
determines whether they are in or out of the 144,000 member Temple of God being build through this 6000 year period of time, not even Jesus Christ
knows at what moment in time God judges His Church during their first life.
The reason you can know that the physical understanding of this scripture has a time limit in terms of its accuracy is that at some point God hands
the scroll of revelation to Jesus Christ as He is the only being in heaven fit to open the seals and release their words on Earth. When that happens
Jesus Christ now knows the timing of His return. When Jesus Christ opened the first seal of Revelation and the abomination od desolation occured to
God's Church on Earth, Jesus Christ then knew the timing. He did not know while on Earth speaking to the diciples when he would return, or up until
that exact moment in time; but now, after the scroll has been handed to Jesus and after he has opened the scoll and loosed the seals; Jesus Christ
gave the timing of His return to his Body through the final end time prophets raised up at this time for that purpose.
In Revelation you know the 2 witnesses/prophets will know the day because it is their job to reveal it, by those two facts in Revelation one can
understand that although 2000 years ago, no one knew the day nor the hour, not even Jesus Christ knew; presently after Jesus opened the seals and God
prophets were given the date by revelation, at the very least before His return, Jesus and witnesses will know.
We are at that time. Jesus and the witnesses were given the timing from God because we have arrived at that time now and "God does no thing without
first revealing it to His servants the prophets." As a member of the Body of Christ/Church of God/Temple of God I received this knowledge from Jesus
to His Church through His prophets.
