When is man going to quit teaching false doctrine about knowing when the world will come to an end? (1 Peter 2:1-3).
The word of God has made it perfectly clear that the end will come in the same way that a robber burglarizes a house. It will be unexpected! The day and hour is known by no one! (Matthew 24:35-51; Mark 13:31-37; Luke 21:33-36; 2 Pet. 3:7-12; Luke 12:35-48; 1 Thessalonians 5:1-9).
Preachers cannot calculate or talk about clues leading up to the end because there aren’t any! The scriptures taken out of context by preachers are Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21. These three chapters are speaking of an invasion which was to come on Jerusalem and lay it waste (Luke 19:41-44). According to secular history that did occur around A.D. 70, and the signs leading up to that invasion are what the Lord was talking about. These preachers today, take those verses out of the context of a past war and paste it into things happening today and claim that such is the prophesying of current events. But, that is wrong. And it is more wrong to claim that world is ending as we saw last week, and I’m sure we will hear this again.
