Of all the stunning things about Christ, one of the most compelling is this: Jesus speaks. John describes Him beautifully in the opening chapter of His gospel as the Word that was in the beginning and that continues to communicate to us even now. His voice, like yours, is one of the ways we come to know Him.
The whole point of Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 24 is to clear up our misunderstandings of the second coming of Christ and get us ready. If you want to know the exact time of His coming, you will be disappointed, for only the Father knows that hour.
