Many people think this is reason enough to say Jesus isn’t God. Which isn’t the case but some use that argument.
If Jesus told us the actual hour down to the second, would we put off all the necessary things we are to persevere in till the end? Given our nature, probably so…
But He says He comes like a thief in the night, which only makes sense if no body is expecting Him to come…right? He wants us ready at all times… That’s why He says to be watchful. That’s why we don’t know when the end will happen.
The bottomline, the Father doesn’t want us to know that information for good reason. And that’s basically what Jesus is saying when He gives us this information about what He says and does.
the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.
For I did not speak of my own accord, but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and how to say it.
whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say."
The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.
I do exactly what my Father has commanded me.
BTW, the end of the world happens every second of every day for someone on this planet. Believe, that the apocalypse for that person happens as soon as they take their last breath. The next moment they will be judged, and they will know at that point. either they will be in heaven or hell for all eternity.
