You take one verse and take it out of context. Jesus was predicting his death. Yes, they were looking for his return but Jesus never said when it would be....exactly.<quoted text>
1. Jesus promised his disciples that he would return within their lifetimes. Matthew 16:28 (KJV) Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom. That was 2000 years ago. What happened?
2. If I decide to worship a "god," I will choose a powerful god, not one who is unable to defeat one of his angels: Satan.
3. You think that you will be "snatched up" into the heavens by "The Rapture." Boy, are YOU "in for a surprise" when you are lying there dead in your grave and realize that it didn't happen.
No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
24:42 Therefore, keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.
