Muslim Screams "Allah!" While Stabbing Office in Michigan

I saw CBS News this morning and they said, "Officials in Michigan are declaring the stabbing of a police officer in Flint, Michigan as a terrorist attack."

So why didn't they take the extra 3 seconds to say, "Muslim terrorist attacker who screamed "Allahu akbar!" while stabbing officer"?

Probably because the media is in FULL DEFENSE MODE in defending Muslim extremists.

They want us to believe that a terrorist is a terrorist.  Some could be white extremists, some could be Lutherans, some could be Catholics....but terrorism is a blight that is spread equally around ALL religions, races and creeds.

Oh shut up already!!

We all know there aren't any Lutheran terrorists stabbing officers while yelling "Jesus is better!"

I do need to tell you that NOT ALL media left out the "Allahu akbar!" reference.  NBC actually did report it right away.

CNN originally said "terrorist".  Next when folks complained they said, "Arabic words."  But yet they refused to report what the FBI said from the very beginning....HE SCREAMED ALLAHU AKBAR!"

If it was already known that the suspect had shouted “Allahu Akbar,” then why did CNN pretend otherwise?

Take a look at its tweet below:
Preliminary indications are Michigan airport suspect said something in Arabic before stabbing officer, officials say

You can’t fix crazy, folks. And you usually can’t fix fake news.

Dovetailing back to the attack Wednesday, Ftouhi said something to the effect of “you have killed people in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, and we are all going to die” as he was being arrested, according to a statement by FBI special agent David P. Gelios issued during a presser that afternoon.

Gelios added that the Canadian Muslim had been motivated to commit the attack out of a “hatred of the United States.”

In other words, Ftouhi is a radical Islamic terrorist — and that, incidentally, is exactly what CNN tried to hide. As a purveyor of politically correct fake news, the network has always cared more about presenting narratives (false narratives, to be exact) than telling the truth.

And that, of course, is why even the president of the United States recognizes CNN as nothing more than “very fake news.”


"Sheep-Man" Born in South Africa has Some People Freaked Out

I'm going to guess that there are some evolutionists who look at these photos and say, "See!  This is exactly how different life forms evolve!  Here is evidence of a mutation, and had Mother Nature been successful with it, men may end up one day walking around with hooves!"

Of course, other folks in South Africa think that some man was having sex with a sheep (yep, that happens more than you want to know) and with a little dollop of Satan thrown in....we end up with a "Sheep-man!"

Superstitious villagers have been living in fear since a sheep gave birth to this creature that was said by elders to be half-human half-beast and 'sent by the devil'.

Many of the 4,000 residents and farmers of Lady Frere in Eastern Province, South Africa, were convinced that bestiality and witchcraft had led to the birth of the creature.

The panic got so great that the Eastern Cape Department of Rural Development sent out experts to carry out tests after pictures of it spread like wildfire through the community.

Chief Director of Veterinary Services Dr Lubabalo Mrwebi admitted that at first glance the lamb which was born dead did resemble a human being but was not part human.

Dr Mrwebi said: 'We can confirm this not a hoax photo but that the severely deformed lamb was born by a sheep in Lady Frere this week which at a glance resembles a human form.

'It is not however human but a deformed stillborn lamb sired by a sheep and was subsequently infected by a Rift Valley Fever at an early stage of its pregnancy.

'It is worth noting that a sheep has 28 pairs of chromosomes while humans have 23 pairs which is important in dispelling the myth that a union of a sheep ovum and a human sperm can lead to a development of a viable life form.

The department's veterinary officials is conducting a post-mortem and its results will be communicated to the public who are fearful in the remote area that witchcraft is at play.

A villager was quoted as saying: 'The elders when they saw it said it was sent by the devil and was born after a coupling between a man and a sheep and then there was panic.

'Many people are afraid and will not be happy until it is burned' he said. 

See photos here;

Yes, I realize that this article doesn't have to to do a whole lot with prophecy....but I will tell you that that Last Days are going to be filled with a ton of confusion, lies and deception.  Headlines of strange beasts and strange flesh may certainly occupy the news following the rapture of the church.

NASA Says Alien Life Probably Exists

Lot's of NASA folks believe that life on earth just popped into existence one day a long, long time ago and then it evolved into little fish, then little fish turned into furry squirrels and climbed into the trees (the trees also just popped from rocks a long, long time ago), then the squirrels grew longer fingers and became monkeys, then the monkeys got tired of living in trees so climbed down and started walking upright and shed the hair and became black men.  Then the black men kept evolving into white men that we see walking all over America today!

Bang!  It explains everything over billions and billions of years!!

Now, since they are now convinced that their UNPROVEN THEORY has now become a only stands to reason that the EXACT SAME THING happened on numerous other planets all over the universe.

And this means we are probably not we shouldn't be surprised if one day some more advanced aliens from other planets show up on earth and make contact with us.

 NASA's planet-hunting telescope has found 10 new planets outside our solar system that are likely the right size and temperature to potentially have life on them, broadly hinting that we are probably not alone.

After four years of searching, the Kepler telescope has detected a total of 49 planets in the Goldilocks zone. And it only looked in a tiny part of the galaxy, one quarter of one percent of a galaxy that holds about 200 billion of stars.

Seven of the 10 newfound Earth-size planets circle stars that are just like ours, not cool dwarf ones that require a planet be quite close to its star for the right temperature. That doesn't mean the planets have life, but some of the most basic requirements that life needs are there, upping the chances for life.

"Are we alone? Maybe Kepler today has told us indirectly, although we need confirmation, that we are probably not alone," Kepler scientist Mario Perez said in a Monday news conference.

Outside scientists agreed that this is a boost in the hope for life elsewhere.

"It implies that Earth-size planets in the habitable zone around sun-like stars are not rare," Harvard astronomer Avi Loeb, who was not part of the work, said in an email.


The world has now been totally prepared to believe in aliens from other planets....because "all the scientists say so!"

But we know that God/Jesus created all life.  We also know that if some intelligent beings deny that Christ is God....they are most certainly taking their marching orders from the powerful alien/angel called Lucifer/Satan.

We can certainly see how the people left behind, following the rapture of the church, will fall for this massive lie brought by fallen angels pretending to be aliens from a distant planet.

Are Billionaires Actually Prepping for Major U.S. Crisis?

This next information comes from an info-mercial from Stansberry Research.  Of course they are going to try and sell something that will protect you from the coming collapse in America.

We have no idea if all their facts are true....but we just want to continue to show you what various segments of the population are talking about.

Why are Billionaires Preparing for a Major U.S. Crisis?

Financial Researcher: Things may seem OK - but here's what's really happening and the simple steps you must take NOW to protect yourself immediately…

Dear Fellow American,

On the surface, everything in America seems OK.

But if that’s the case, why are so many wealthy and well-connected people quietly preparing for a collapse of the federal government… and complete social disorder?

The list of folks who’ve established some type of escape plan or “bolt-hole” is startling…

Steve Huffman is the founder and CEO of Reddit… an internet firm worth at least $500 million.

Huffman says he’s getting ready for, “the temporary collapse of our government and structures…” 

One successful U.S. hedge fund manager moved his entire family to Singapore. He says the government “has no clue what they are doing. They are going to ruin
us all."

Another hedge fund manager, billionaire Kyle Bass, built a 41,000-square foot ranch stocked with firearms and gold.

Peter Thiel, the billionaire founder of PayPal, paid $10 million for a second
passport and a 400-acre estate in New Zealand.

A.G. Martínez, a former Facebook product manager, bought an island in the Pacific Northwest and stocked it with generators, solar panels, and ammunition.

He says: “I think people who are particularly attuned to the levers by which society actually works understand that we are skating on really thin cultural ice right now.”

Robert Dugger, a former partner at the global hedge fund Tudor Investment Corporation, says:

“people… are worried that America is heading toward something like the Russian Revolution.”

And when Reid Hoffman, the billionaire founder and CEO of LinkedIn, was asked what percentage of Silicon Valley billionaires are preparing for a major crisis, he answered: “50%+.”

Why are all these people so concerned?

What do they know that you don’t?

America is in for some major changes to our economy, our country, and our very way of life over the next five years. And when the next crisis arrives, it’s going to look NOTHING like the last one.


You can't help and think of a few Bible verses as you read this...."As people are saying "peace and safety" destruction will come upon them suddenly."

There seems to be not a care in the world in America today, even though the dangerous headlines are all around us.

North Korea?
Not interested!!

Muslims blowing up stuff in London and Paris??  Not my problem!!

Christian church falling into apostasy??
Don't go to church so don't know what it is or care!!

Technology following your every single move??
Gotta stay with the times, not worried about privacy of Gov't misusing data!!

And yet the stock market keeps going up!  People seem to have totally forgotten 2008-2009 when businesses were boarding up as their lines of credit were instantly closed by their terrified banks. Peter could no longer pay Paul, so Paul couldn't pay Jim, so Jim couldn't make his mortgage payments, so he had to sell the stocks in his 401K, which further depressed the stock market....and they downward spiral almost collapsed America in a death spiral of fear and lack of confidence.

Oh yeah, and who can forget that at the same time gasoline went to $4.25 per gallon?

"Really Dennis?....I had totally forgotten that!"

It also makes me think about how these rich folks, for many of whom their money IS THEIR GOD, THINK they are going to try to escape the coming wrath and ride out the chaos that THEY FEEL is coming, on some private island filled with generators and canned food.

It's not going to happen.

Revelation 3
You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.

Revelation 6
Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains.

Revelation 18
For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”

They will throw dust on their heads, and with weeping and mourning cry out: “‘Woe! Woe to you, great city, where all who had ships on the sea became rich through her wealth! In one hour she has been brought to ruin!’

EU Sues Countries For Refusing to Take Muslim Immigrants

Previously we posted on the need for a European Union army.  If they are going to issue decrees and orders they ultimately will have to have a way to enforce them

Currently they are using the court system.

Today, we read they are suing other countries in the Union who aren't taking enough Muslim immigrants.

European Union Sues Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic For Not Taking Muslim Migrants

The EU wants to make sure that all of its members commit cultural and civilizational suicide on an equitable basis.

(The European Union is a political and economic union of 28 member states that are located primarily in Europe. It has an area of 4,475,757 km², and an estimated population of over 510 million.)

Have refugees ever been responsible for jihad attacks? Somali Muslim migrant Mohammad Barry in February 2016 stabbed multiple patrons at a restaurant owned by an Israeli Arab Christian; Ahmad Khan Rahami, an Afghan Muslim migrant, in September 2016 set off bombs in New York City and New Jersey; Arcan Cetin, a Turkish Muslim migrant, in September 2016 murdered five people in a mall in Burlington, Washington; Dahir Adan, another Somali Muslim migrant, in October 2016 stabbed mall shoppers in St. Cloud while screaming “Allahu akbar”; and Abdul Razak Artan, yet another Somali Muslim migrant, in November 2016 injured nine people with car and knife attacks at Ohio State University. 72 jihad terrorists have come to the U.S. from the countries listed in Trump’s immigration ban.

What’s more, all of the jihadis who murdered 130 people in Paris in November 2015 had just entered Europe as refugees. In February 2015, the Islamic State boasted it would soon flood Europe with as many as 500,000 refugees. The Lebanese Education Minister said in September 2015 that there were 20,000 jihadis among the refugees in camps in his country. On May 10, 2016, Patrick Calvar, the head of France’s DGSI internal intelligence agency, said that the Islamic State was using migrant routes through the Balkans to get jihadis into Europe.

“EU launches legal proceedings against Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic over handling of the refugee crisis,” by Shehab Khan, Independent, June 14, 2017:

The European Commission has launched legal proceedings against three European Union member states who refused to take in refugees.

Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic have been accused of not fulfilling their obligations outlined in a 2015 plan to relocate migrants from Italy and Greece, to help ease their burden.

“I regret to see that, despite our repeated calls to pledge to relocate, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Poland have not yet taken the necessary action,” the EU’s migration commissioner, Dimitris Avramopoulos, told a news conference.

The Commission is now launching infringement procedures against the three nations, which would allow the top EU court to potentially impose fines. However, the legal battle could take months, even years, to conclude.


And THAT'S exactly why they need an army!  If Poland or Hungary ignores the is the Union going to bring it's members in line?  They can start with a carrot but ultimately they better have a big stick.

European Army is "Inevitable"

How the heck is the European Union going to continue to lay down laws if they have no way to enforce them?

"We demand that YOU cut your carbon emissions by 50%"
"Ummmm....screw you!  We aren't gonna do that!"
"Well...then we are going to draft you a very severe letter!"
"Oooooo!!...Not the letter!  No don't draft the letter!!"

Today we see a glimmer that maybe this is dawning on Europe.  They DO need some type of army.

Germany’s parliamentary defense commissioner, Hans-Peter Bartels, has renewed calls for a joint EU army amid concerns about the reliability of the NATO alliance and disorganization and fragmentation of national defense structures.

Speaking to the German Press Agency on Monday, Hans-Peter Bartels, the Germany Parliamentary Commissioner for the Armed Forces, called on the 28-nation bloc’s militaries to unite into a single armed force.

“We are currently disorganized, technically fragmented and duplicate structures unnecessarily,” Bartels said, as quoted by the Telegraph. “We do not want to go down the solitary national path anymore. Not in Germany, not in the Netherlands, not in the Czech Republic and not in Italy.”

“In the end, there will be a European army,” he stated.

Since around 2013, Germany has been overseeing efforts towards closer EU defense integration through the Framework Nations Concept, through which it plans to share troops and capabilities with other European countries. Two Dutch brigades have already been integrated into the Bundeswehr’s Rapid Response Forces Division and 1st Armored Division, and there are also plans for Czech and Romanian forces to do the same.


YES!! In THE END there WILL BE a European Army!!

It would seem that in the Last Days, when Antichrist is on the earth. he is going to need an army.

Since the Bible seems to point to the idea that the Antichrist will come out of some type of revived Roman would stand to reason that maybe his army will be made up of Europeans.

Just something more to watch....

Entangled Particles, Quantum Physics, May Rewrite What Science Thinks It Knows

How is it possible that one photon doing something in Minnesota can be identically mirrored by it's twin photon 3000 miles away?  How about 300,000,000 miles away?  And the communication between the two is instantaneous?


As of yet science can't explain HOW this works anymore than they can explain HOW life came from lifeless objects.

But please, please remember...according to The Left, science is the ONLY place that provides answers....even if they are throwing out yesterday's answers with new ones today!!

Imagine you are a photon, a packet of light. You are a tiny blip of energy, hurtling through the universe on your own. But you have a twin, another photon to whom you have been intimately connected since the day you were born. No matter what distance separates you, be it the width of a lab bench or the breadth of the universe, you mirror each other. Whatever happens to your twin instantaneously affects you, and vice versa. You are like the mouse siblings in "An American Tail," wrenched apart by fate but feeling the same feelings and singing the same song beneath the same glowing moon.

This is quantum entanglement. To non-physicists it sounds about as fantastical as singing mice, and indeed, plenty of physicists have problems with the phenomenon. Albert Einstein, whose own research helped give rise to quantum theory, derisively called the concept "spooky action at a distance." Quantum entanglement seems to break some of the bedrock rules of standard physics: that nothing can travel faster than light, that objects are only influenced by their immediate surroundings. And scientists still can't explain how the particles are linked. Is it wormholes? An unknown dimension? The power of love? (That last one's a joke.)

Luckily for quantum physicists, you don't always need to explain a phenomenon in order to use it. Ancient humans didn't know about friction before inventing the wheel; doctors in medieval China didn't know about antibodies when they began inoculating people against smallpox 600 years ago. Not knowing what's behind quantum entanglement didn't stop Jian-Wei Pan, a physicist at the University of Science and Technology of China in Shanghai, from rocketing it into space.

In a new study in the journal Science, Pan and his colleagues report that they were able to produce entangled photons on a satellite orbiting 300 miles above the planet and beam the particles to two different ground-based labs that were 750 miles apart, all without losing the particles' strange linkage. It is the first time anyone has ever generated entangled particles in space, and represents a 10-fold increase in the distance over which entanglement has been maintained.

"Mathematically we know exactly how to describe what happens,' Ghose said, "We know how to connect, physically, these particles in the lab, and we know what to expect when we generate and manipulate and transmit them."

But as for how it all happens, how entangled photons know what their partner is doing, "that is not part of the equation," she continued. "That's what makes it so mysterious and interesting."


God tells us that His ways are not our ways.

I would sure hope not!

Mankind can't create ANYTHING unless we use all the soil, seeds, minerals, water and life that GOD ALREADY CREATED!!

Man also can't come close to understanding who, what, why, where God actually is!  He exists OUTSIDE of our time/space continuum.

Remember what Peter told the Lord a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years is like a day.

Science can't see angels in their realm...but the Bible says they are MORE REAL than we are!!

I will now make a guarantee...which I almost never do.....I guarantee you that mankind will NEVER come up with all the knowledge that God has.  Of course that won't stop mankind from WANTING to be like God....but it will never happen.

The smugness of which many on The Left walk around with and their mocking tone about anyone who would dare to believe in a "spirit in the sky" that created the world and all life in palpable.

Job 38
The Lord Speaks
38 Then the Lord spoke to Job out of the storm. He said:

2 “Who is this that obscures my plans
    with words without knowledge?
3 Brace yourself like a man;
    I will question you,
    and you shall answer me.
4 “Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?
    Tell me, if you understand.
5 Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know!
    Who stretched a measuring line across it?
6 On what were its footings set,
    or who laid its cornerstone—
7 while the morning stars sang together
    and all the angels shouted for joy?

Is Ken Hamm Blaming Atheists for Ark Financials?

I haven't been to Ken Ham's Ark Experience in Kentucky.  From what I read, I think it sounds pretty cool.

I have no idea if the Ark Experience is going as planned or is more, or less, successful than planned.

I ran across this article today on  Google News today and it appears to be saying that the Ark isn't doing as well as planned and that Ham is pointing his finger at atheists for potentially scaring business away.

Sad monkey: A bitter Ken Ham blames atheists and the secular media for the perceived financial failure of his Ark Park.

In a recent blog post to his Answers in Genesis website, leading creationist Ken Ham laments the supposed power of atheists and the “secularist media,” complaining that they are damaging the reputation of his Ark Encounter, and the economy of the surrounding local businesses, writing:
Recently, a number of articles in the mainstream media, on blogs, and on well-known secularist group websites have attempted to spread propaganda to brainwash the public into thinking our Ark Encounter attraction is a dismal failure.

Sadly, they (atheists and the secular media) are influencing business investors and others in such a negative way that they may prevent Grant County, Kentucky, from achieving the economic recovery that its officials and residents have been seeking.

In other words, Ken Ham blames atheists for his trouble. Ham is refusing to take responsibility for his own failure, and refusing to take responsibility for his broken promises to the citizens and business community of Grant County, Kentucky.

Ham is desperate to counter the narrative that his Ark Encounter and Creation Museum are not delivering on the promises he made. He is particularly upset with a recent article from The Lexington Herald Leader that explores Ham’s failure to deliver on financial promises made to community members and local businesses.

Commenting on the agreements the Ark Encounter made with the county and city, and the broken promises made by Ham and his people after being given extremely generous tax breaks, Grant County Judge-Executive Steve Wood opined:

It’s a really bad deal for taxpayers. It was a shock for me because I didn’t really know all the details. Maybe I should have.

According to The Lexington Herald Leader report, Wood is not alone in his disappointment with Ken Ham and his Ark Park boondoggle. Williamstown Mayor Rick Skinner complains about Ham’s broken promises, noting:

There hasn’t been any commercial development here.

However, ignoring the criticism from local business people, Ham is sticking to his story that the Ark Park’s failure to produce the financial gains he promised is not his fault, but the fault of “intolerant secularists.” Ham writes:

… we are in a spiritual battle, and the intolerant secularists are so upset with such world-class attraction like the Ark (and Creation Museum) that publicly proclaim a Christian message. They will resort to whatever tactics they deem necessary to try to malign the attractions.


Can the bullies on The Left actually impact business?  Of course they can!!

Think of the examples in the past few years when they come out screaming, "Homophobic!" or "Islamophobic!" and people lose their jobs or businesses get boycotted.

Is it possible that businesses WANTED to set up shop by the Ark but decided they were scared of the potential finger pointing by The Left?


Is it possible that Ken Ham made too many promises and spent too much money and that not enough Christians are willing to shell out 30-40 bucks per head to see the Ark?


But just check out some of these comments following this article and you will see the mocking tone of The Left to anyone who disagrees with them;

The "world class" attraction's failure reflects the failure of world class. Pure foolishness.

Atheists are stronger than the Judeo-Christian god, apparently.

Felling thousands of trees and putting uncountable tons of carbon into the atmosphere to make a fictional boat featured in a book written thousands of years ago is antithetical to the vision of Christ. I call it blasphemy, bombast, and arrogance.

He's actually right, you know. Atheism is to blame for the parks failure, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. The fact that the US population is slowly (painfully slowly) moving away from Christian "God made the world in 7 days" idiocy, and towards secular, "science minded" atheism, is a very positive development in the big scheme of things. Maybe not for the economic dreams of Mr. Hamm and the delusional idiots who supported his vision of a Christian themed park/town, but good for the overall direction of the country.

Isn't that the guy whose park was featured on Bill Maher's, "Religioulous"? I was laughing until I peed watching that documentary. Those people really are lunatics.

It's hard to NOT HEAR the sneering tone of Satan as you read these comments...."Did God really say to not eat that apple?"...."Did God really say there was an Ark and only 8 people survived a global flood?"  "Did God really say that Jesus is the only way to salvation....that doesn't seem very loving!"

Russia Warns USA After Syrian Warplane Downed

Remember, anytime you see a headline with Russia and Syria in probably want to pay attention.

As you already know, Russia seems to be the main player in Ezekiel 38 and Damascus, Syria is the main player in Isaiah 17.

Warplanes from the U.S.-led coalition operating over Syrian government-controlled areas west of the Euphrates River will be tracked as potential targets, Russia's Defense Ministry said Monday, a day after the U.S. military shot down a Syrian air force jet.

Moscow condemned the downing of the Syrian jet after it dropped bombs near the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces that are fighting ISIS in Syria's increasingly complicated civil war.

The downing of the warplane — the first time in the conflict that the U.S. has shot down a Syrian jet — came as Iran fired several ballistic missiles at ISIS positions in eastern Syria in retaliation for two attacks by the extremists in Tehran earlier this month that killed 17 people.

The U.S. military confirmed that one of its F-18 Super Hornets shot down a Syrian Su-22 that had dropped bombs near the U.S. partner forces SDF. Those forces, which are aligned with the U.S. in the campaign against ISIS, warned Syrian government troops to stop their attacks or face retaliation.

In comments to Russian news agencies, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov compared the downing to "helping the terrorists that the U.S. is fighting against."

"What is this, if not an act of aggression?" he asked.

Viktor Ozerov, chairman of the defense and security committee at the upper chamber of Russian parliament, described the Defense Ministry's statement as a warning.

Ozerov insisted that Russia will be tracking the coalition's jets, not shooting them down, but he added that "a threat for those jets may appear only if they take action that pose a threat to Russian aircraft."


It would certainly appear that the world is walking, or running, down the path that leads to WWIII.

What happens if USA shoots down a Russian plane in Syria?  What happens if USA bombs Iranian soldiers operating in Syria and some Russian generals happened to be in the room "advising" the Iranians?

At present, there seem to be many triggers that could really set things in motion very fast.

Of course it is our hope that a massive war never breaks out.  It is our hope that these actions are all just the opening salvos of a war that won't happen until AFTER the trumpet sounds and Jesus snatches all believers out of this world.

"As in the days of Noah, people were eating, drinking, marrying, giving in marriage, planting, building and carrying on as usual....and they basically had no clue as to what was coming....until the flood came and took them all to destruction." (my paraphrase)

Can We Know When Jesus Will Return?

Of course we all know that Jesus said NO MAN will know the date of his return.  But Jesus also told his followers to "Watch!" what are we supposed to watch for?

Here is a really good article on this topic written by prophecy watcher, Britt Gillette.

Can we know when Jesus will return? No. When it comes to the exact timing of His return, we can’t know. Jesus Himself said “no man knows the day or the hour of my return, not even myself. Only my Father in heaven knows” (Mark 13:32). Jesus reiterated this concept when He said He would come like a thief in the night “when least expected” (Matthew 24:43-44).

This idea, coupled with the statement “no one can know the day or the hour” of His return, has led many Christians to believe they can’t know anything about the timing of His return. After all, if Jesus comes like a thief in the night when least expected, how could you know when He’s coming?

That’s a good question. And while it’s true we can’t know the day or the hour, the idea no one has a clue as to whether it’s tomorrow or a 1,000 years from now is just plain wrong. The Bible is clear we can know the general “season” of His return.

Like a Thief in the Night

Many people who believe we can’t know anything about the timing of Christ’s return base their belief on the idea Jesus “will come like a thief in the night.” Jesus did say He would come unexpectedly, like a thief in the night (Matthew 24:43-44). And Paul said the same thing (1 Thessalonians 5:2).

But if you read the rest of Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians, you’ll see he said something else as well. Paul said those of us who live in the light will not be surprised. While Jesus will come like a thief in the night when least expected, those who know God’s Word will not be surprised.

Here’s the full context of that passage (emphasis mine):

“But you aren’t in the dark about these things, dear brothers and sisters, and you won’t be surprised when the day of the Lord comes like a thief. For you are all children of the light and of the day; we don’t belong to darkness and night. So be on your guard, not asleep like the others. Stay alert and be clearheaded. Night is the time when people sleep and drinkers get drunk. But let us who live in the light be clearheaded, protected by the armor of faith and love, and wearing as our helmet the confidence of our salvation.” (1 Thessalonians 5:4-8 NLT)

How can this be? If Jesus comes unexpectedly like a thief in the night, how is it Christians are not surprised? It’s because we know to expect Jesus at any moment, and we obey His command to be alert and ready at all times. We also know the Second Coming of Jesus Christ to establish His Millennial Kingdom comes with many signs.

Why Would God Mention Signs?

If we can’t know anything about the timing of the Second Coming, then why did Jesus tell us to look for signs? When His disciples asked Him to describe the signs of His return, He told them. He didn’t rebuke them. He didn’t tell them to forget about such things. Instead, He described the signs. Why would Jesus say to look for signs if they don’t exist? Why would He mention them if we can’t know when He’s coming?

The answer is clear. We can know the general time frame of His return. We can’t know the day or the hour, but we can know the season. Numerous signs precede the Second Coming. Jesus and the prophets told us what those signs are. And Jesus said when you see them, you’ll know He’s near – right at the door (Matthew 24:33). We see those signs today. So we can know with certainty Jesus is coming soon.

A Command to Watch

Jesus also commanded us to “Watch!” (Matthew 25:13) This begs the question. Watch for what? Over and over again, Jesus says, “Watch! Don’t let me find you asleep when I come back without warning” (Mark 13:35-37). This is a clear command. But what does it mean? Jesus is telling us to be spiritually alert. If we live a life of faithful service to Him, the day of His return won’t catch us like a trap. Jesus says a faithful servant lives life expecting His return at any moment (Luke 12:35-38).

But Jesus is also telling us to watch for signs of the Second Coming. After all, if there are no signs, what are we supposed to “watching” for? Again, it’s clear. Signs will precede the Second Coming. And Jesus expects us to recognize those signs. If He didn’t, why would He command us to watch? He wouldn’t, because we would have nothing to look for.

We’re supposed to be watching for the signs. And Jesus says those who are ready and waiting when He returns will be rewarded (Luke 12:37).

Recognizing the Signs

In reference to His first coming, Jesus told the Pharisees, “You can recognize the signs in the sky and know what type of weather is coming, yet you don’t know how to recognize the signs of the times” (Matthew 16:3). The prophets had written extensively about the coming of the Messiah. The Pharisees knew when the Messiah was supposed to come. They knew the Messiah would perform many miracles.

Jesus fulfilled these prophecies right before their eyes. Yet the Pharisees still didn’t recognize who He was. Just as He did with the Pharisees, Jesus expects us to recognize the signs of His Second Coming. He told us what signs to look for. And the same prophets who wrote about His First Coming also wrote about His Second Coming. Like the Pharisees, we’re expected to recognize “the signs of the times.” Those signs tell us the Second Coming is drawing near.


While we can’t know the day or the hour of His return, we can know the general season. The Bible tells us what signs to look for. And Jesus Himself said when you see all these signs come together, you know His return is near (Luke 21:28). Today, we see those signs. Israel is once again a nation (Isaiah 11:11-12). The Jewish people are back in Jerusalem (Luke 21:24). And the gospel is being spread to the ends of the earth (Matthew 24:14). These and other signs are out in the open for everyone to see. You can’t miss them. For 1,800+ years of Christianity, these signs didn’t exist. Today, they do.

God said He will hold us accountable for letting others know about the signs (Ezekiel 33:1-6). We’re expected to point out these signs to others. We’re expected to tell others Jesus is returning soon. If the world ignores us, so be it. But if anyone tells you we can’t know the timing of His return, tell them what the Bible says. The truth is we can know the general season of His return. And given all the signs we see today, we can be certain we’re living in it. The time is near. Jesus is coming soon!


As we have said all along, we have no idea if the trumpet is going to blow later on today, next year or 10 years from now...BUT....with all the things in place that Jesus told us to WATCH for....I wouldn't be surprised if it happens sometime soon.

So does this discussion about the trumpet blowing and all followers of Christ being called up into the clouds to meet Jesus in the air make you nervous or excited?
