I'm with Matthew

Friday December 6th, Matthew 24: 36 "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. With all the focus on the end times and when it will be, how it will be, and who is in and who is out, we are only turning our focus away from what it means to be a child of God and back to what it means to take care of “old number one.” The Rapture is a racket (The Rapture Exposed, Barbara Rossing) and the losers in this racket are the millions of Christians who lose their way and their money on the way to helping others. This phenomenon was first spoken of in the second story of creation, with the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. In this story, Eve, the mother of all, and Adam, the creature made from the adamah, are tempted to take things into their own hands, gain all knowledge, and be like gods. In the end all they found was shame. In the rapture, we attempt to decipher the end times so we can be on the inside track and others will be on the outside looking in. Humans are the actors in a script that God wrote long ago and has no control over. Matthew tells us that no one knows, except the Father. He hints that God set things up this way just so there would not be all this speculation and avoidance of what it means to be a child of God. I’m with Matthew on this one.
