The Father Knows When

Matt 24:36: “However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself.  Only the Father knows."

I wonder if this isn't an intellectual knowing, like the Father knows a number that no one else does, but rather a spiritual knowing . . . a connection to the whole of eternity that, as things ripen to the end of times, the Father will know when it's time because the feeling is right; because He is the only One in this particular salvation saga that has been through this before, not because He has a carefully-made checklist or a reminder on his iphone . . .

Thoughts?

I welcome questions and concerns--they are most often what spur us closer to the truth. I only ask that we all give everyone the most generous benefit of the doubt, assigning the best motives possible. A soft answer truly does turn away wrath, and an atmosphere of Jesus's love is the best for learning, no matter which side of a discussion you're on.

Thanks so much, and God bless you!
