Jesus Appearance (11) - Surprise

The people of the world will be surprised by Jesus appearance.

The day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape (1 Thes 5:2-3).
Just as there is no advance warning of where and when a thief will strike, so there will be no warning of Jesus appearance.

Many Christians claim to know the timing of the Jesus appearance. Jesus warned that there would be no preliminary signs.
But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father (Matt 24:36).
There is no point in trying to second-guess Jesus. Christians should be ready at all times, so we will not be embarrassed when he comes.
Therefore, keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him (Matt 24:42-44).
Those who do Jesus will, will be ready whenever he comes.
