Now, the year, the month, the week, the day and the hour that Jesus returns to this earth will be according to God’s will because ONLY GOD KNOWS THE DAY AND THE HOUR (Matthew 24:36)!
What is important is that we are PREPARED AND READY EVERY DAY because we do not know THE DAY AND HOU of THE END OF OUR LIFETIME (Isaiah 55:6) (Mark 1:15); “[AND AS IT IS APPOINTED UNTO MEN ONCE TO DIE, BUT AFTER THIS THE JUDGMENT]” (Hebrews 9:27).
Now, not all people will be dead when Jesus returns for the Day of Judgment because the Apostle Paul said: “WE SHALL NOT ALL SLEEP…” (1 Corinthians 15:50)- However, if we die before that day comes, what it is important is to DIE IN JESUS CHRIST because on the DAY AND HOUR of the COMING OF JESUS it is written: “…THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST…” (1 Thessalonians 4:16).
We must PRAY ALWAYS to live every day to “…REFUSE THE EVIL, AND CHOOSE THE GOOD” (Isaiah 7:13-15) because on the Day of Judgment the Scriptures says: “…THEY THAT HAVE DONE GOOD, UNTO THE RESURRECTION OF LIFE; and THEY THAT HAVE DONE EVIL, UNTO THE RESURRECTION OF DAMNATION” (John 5:28-29).
JESUS, the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD, says: “[THE TIME IS FULFILLED], and the Kingdom of God is at hand: [REPENT YE, AND BELIEVE THE GOSPEL]” (Mark 1:15).
“Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3). “[FOR I CAME DOWN FROM HEAVEN, NOT TO DO MINE OWN WILL], but the will of him that sent me” (John 6:38).
“[AND THIS GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM SHALL BE PREACHED IN ALL THE WORLD] for a witness unto all nations; [AND THEN SHALL THE END COME]” (Matthew 24:14).
“[BUT OF THAT DAY AND HOUR KNOWETH NO MAN, NO, NOT THE ANGELS OF HEAVEN, BUT MY FATHER ONLY]” (Matthew 24:36).
“[WATCH] ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, [AT EVEN, OR AT MIDNIGHT, OR AT THE COCKCROWING, OR IN THE MORNING]” (Mark 13:35).
“[TAKE YE HEED, WATCH AND PRAY]: for ye know not when the time is” (Mark 13:33).
“[FOR AS A SNARE SHALL IT COME ON ALL THEM THAT DWELL ON THE FACE OF THE WHOLE EARTH].
[WATCH] ye therefore, and [PRAY ALWAYS], that ye may be accounted [WORTHY TO ESCAPE ALL THESE THINGS] that shall come to pass, [AND TO STAND BEFORE] the Son of man” (Luke 21:35-36).
“[I AM WITH YOU ALWAY, EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).
“[JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY, AND TODAY, AND FOREVER]” (Hebrews 13:8), “Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God; but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. And being found in fashion as a man, [HE HUMBLED HIMSELF, AND BECAME OBEDIENT UNTO DEATH, EVEN THE DEATH OF THE CROSS. WHEREFORE GOD ALSO HATH HIGHLY EXALTED HIM, AND GIVEN HIM A NAME WHICH IS ABOVE EVERY NAME]. That at the [NAME OF JESUS] every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:5–11).
“Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, [WORLD WITHOUT END]. Amen” (Ephesians 3:21).

Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles who preached the GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST said: “For I am not ashamed of the [GOSPEL OF CHRIST]: for [IT IS THE POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION TO EVERYONE THAT BELIEVETH]; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek” (Romans 1:16).
“And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: [THAT YOUR FAITH SHOULD NOT STAND IN THE WISDOM OF MEN, BUT IN THE POWER OF GOD]” (1 Corinthians 2:4-5).
“[AND HAVE NO FELLOWSHIP WITH THE UNFRUITFUL WORKS OF DARKNESS], but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light” (Ephesians 5:11–13).
“For it is written, ‘I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.’ [FOR THE PREACHING OF THE CROSS IS TO THEM THAT PERISH FOOLISHNESS; BUT UNTO US WHICH ARE SAVED IT IS THE POWER OF GOD]. For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe” (1 Corinthians 1:18–19, 21).
“BUT IF OUR GOSPEL BE HID, IT IS HID TO THEM THAT ARE LOST:
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, [LEST THE LIGHT OF THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL OF CHRIST], who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
[FOR GOD, WHO COMMANDED THE LIGHT TO SHINE OUT OF DARKNESS], hath shined in our hearts, [TO GIVE THE LIGHT OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE GLORY OF GOD IN THE FACE OF JESUS CHRIST]” (2 Corinthians 4:3-6).

“No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will [RAISE] him up at the [LAST DAY]” (John 6:44).

“[WHO IS HE THAT OVERCOMETH THE WORLD], but [HE THAT BELIEVETH THAT JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD]? This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is [THE SPIRIT THAT BEARETH WITNESS, BECAUSE THE SPIRIT IS TRUTH]” (1 John 5:5–6).
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that [WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE]. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. [HE THAT BELIEVETH ON HIM IS NOT CONDEMNED]: but [HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT IS CONDEMNED ALREADY], because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16-18).

“The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand: [REPENT YE, AND BELIEVE THE GOSPEL]” (Mark 1:15). “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall [THE END] come” (Matthew 24:14).

When a young man wanted to know what he must do to inherit eternal life, Jesus answered: “[IF THOU WILT ENTER INTO LIFE, KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS]” (Matthew 19:17). The young man then wanted to know which commandments.
“Jesus said, ‘Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
The young man saith unto him, ‘All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?’ Jesus said unto him, ‘[IF THOU WILT BE PERFECT, GO AND SELL THAT THOU HAST, AND GIVE TO THE POOR, AND THOU SHALT HAVE TREASURE IN HEAVEN: AND COME AND FOLLOW ME].
’But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions. Then said Jesus unto his disciples, ‘[VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, THAT A RICH MAN SHALL HARDLY ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN]’” (Matthew 18-23)
“And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, ‘[WHO THEN CAN BE SAVED]?’ But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, ‘WITH MEN THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE; BUT WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE’” (Matthew 19:24-26).
“[TAKE HEED, AND BEWARE OF COVETOUSNESS]: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth” (Luke 12:15).
“Let the cares of this world, and the [DECEITFULNESS OF RICHES], and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word and it becometh unfruitful” (Mark 4:19).
DO NOT BE DECEIVED into believing that you will be “raptured” to heaven to escape the Great Tribulation because by the world of GOD we MUST ALL be present when JESUS COMES for the DAY OF JUDGMEN (Revelation 20:11-15).
JESUS says: “[FOR AS A SNARE SHALL IT COME ON ALL THEM THAT DWELL ON THE FACE OF THE WHOLE EARTH].
[WATCH YE THEREFORE, AND PRAY ALWAYS], that ye may be accounted [WORTHY TO ESCAPE ALL THESE THINGS] that shall come to pass, [AND TO STAND BEFORE] the Son of man” (Luke 21:35-36).

He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
[VERILY, VERILY, I SAY UNTO YOU, HE THAT HEARETH MY WORD, AND BELIEVETH ON HIM THAT SENT ME, HATH EVERLASTING LIFE], and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life” (John 5:21-24).
In GLORY of the FATHER, the SON and the HOLY SPIRIT. Amen.
“[THEREFORE TAKE NO THOUGHT, SAYING, WHAT SHALL WE EAT]? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? But [SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS]; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:31).
“[THEREFORE I SAY UNTO YOU, ‘TAKE NO THOUGHT FOR YOUR LIFE], what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment. Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?’” (Luke 12:22-24).
