The Bible is quite clear that, “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” (Matt 24:36 / Mark 13:32) As soon as mortal man puts a date or label on a particular day, that cannot be the day because then we know. The day Jesus returns will surprise us. “For you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.” (1 Thes 5:2) It will happen when we least expect it not when someone, regardless of validity, predicts it because then we will all know. I would say, beware anyone who claims to know the exact date and time. They may be trying to sell you something.
But, I have another theory about the End Times. I believe it is a variable to the global society to which we are all a part of. Now, do not hear me say that the End is not a certainty. Do not hear me say it is not a set day that God knows. God knows all things and sees the beginning and the end of everything with equal clarity. God is timeless. He is omnipotent and omnipresent. But, follow my idea here.
I think of the End almost as a sliding scale; as if it is dependent upon the choices we make as a global society. When we make good choices, right choices, Godly choices; the process that inevitably leads to the End slows down. When we make poor choices, wicked choices; the process speeds up. Ultimately God knows the date, but the rest must wait and watch not knowing when God will have had enough. He is long suffering and patient with His people after all.
When society becomes completely corrupt, that is when God has intervened in the past. See any part of the Old Testament and see if you don’t agree. So, it would seem to me that would be true. Truly, our global society is becoming more and more corrupt with each passing moment. But, there is still some good in the world. Take a look around. It is out there. It may be getting harder and harder to find, but it seems to be enough for God not to intervene just yet. He will. It will just be in His time, not when some person, regardless of validity or status names it. Until then, live right and make good choices. Not to avoid the End, but because it is the right thing to do.
