My son, Douglas, got out of the Navy in August 1975. He took a book off the shelf at the store and showed me that it said that Jesus was going to return to earth on September 15, 1975. I said I would send it back to the publisher. He asked why. I said, “If the book is wrong we don’t want it, and if it is right we won’t need it.”
Matthew 24 gives a list of calamities and then says, “The end is not yet.” The Scripture also says that only the “Father knows.” There will be an end; that is a certainty.
For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say "No" to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. (Titus 2:11-13)
