QUOTE: it is Not for the 12 APOSTLES to know the Day or Hour but says nothing about the Year, Decade or Month.
Jesus says that it is Not for the 12 APOSTLES to know the Times and Seasons but Not US.
Strefanash. Come now!! This is a clear case of what Jesus said to the apostles he said to the church for the apostles were the nucleus of the church.
AS for ST Paul's "I would not have to ignorant of times and seasons" this does not justify date setting either. All it is saying is that we should know the ORDER of events at the end time so as not to be caught out when they happen.
"He said nothing about the year or month" is a specious piece of barrack room lawyering designed to openly defy the Master's clear teaching on this matter.
WE ARE NOT TO KNOW WHEN.
Luke 12:39. look it up. if we know the time so does Satan, the master of the house, who will then stop the thief who is coming from breaking in.
Set dates and you blaspheme the Name of God and cause others to do so when the date setting fails, as it always does
