Please know that I believe Jesus will return one day. He said so. It will happen. Also, I realize that Jesus’ followers do need to observe the times and seasons, as he commanded (Matthew 16:3). Yes, there are hints Jesus has given us about his return---especially in the increasing intensity of disasters, wars, and rumors of wars (Matthew 24:6). I do acknowledge that John began the book of Revelation by stating that people are blessed when they try to understand the end times (Revelation 1:3).
However, call me skeptical when confronted with this specific prophecy. Why do I feel like this?
