My comments here were first written in a post I made on You Tube in response to a video which was claiming that the rapture is going to come in September 2015. I decided to post the comments as a brief article on this site since this issue is of great concern to me
I believe that the rapture is very near, and could happen at any moment. But whenever someone sets a date for it, all that does is make me wonder if that is when it won't happen. I believe that Jesus said that no one knows the day or hour of His return for a reason (in Matthew 24:36) - because He wants us to be ready at ALL times, not just on one specific date. I am sure He also knew how many people would be setting dates for His return, and I think that is another reason that He warned that no one knows the day or hour. Date setting for Christ's return has lead to disillusionment time and time again, and has also given the enemies of God occasion to mock time and time again - yet there are many who never seem to learn from that, no matter how many times it happens. This is particularly astonishing to me when I consider the damage that Harold Camping's date setting has done. Since the Lord wants us to be ready for His return at ALL times, I believe it is important that we do not even come CLOSE to setting dates for His return. Some who do so may be well meaning, but I am pleading with people to take an honest look at the damage that past date setting has already done. The last thing we need is more of that.
