That Day and Hour

So… looks like that whole end of the world/judgment day thing never happened. A lot of predictions have been made concerning this event, and it’s not surprising that all of them have been wrong. Perhaps we should turn to the scriptures for some guidance on this issue…

But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. (Mark 13:32)

No man knows. No angel is aware. Not even the Son of God Himself possesses the knowledge of His own Second Coming. Only God the Father knows the day and hour. How arrogant to think that mankind could figure out this equation. Jesus gives us some advice in the next verse,

Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

Amulek, in the Book of Mormon, said,

For behold, this life is the time for men to prepare to meet God; yea, behold the day of this life is the day for men to perform their labors. (Alma 34:32)

All we can do is simply be prepared, because it will come “as a thief in the night.” When we’re getting too cozy, when our guard is down, that is when it will happen. Therefore, we need to pray. We need to read God’s word in the scriptures. We need to obey His commandments and be ready.
