Amos 3:7 - "Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets."

All through the Bible God always warned ahead of time & in most cases gave a specific date or time table before He would deliver judgment. Just to name a few instances here are some examples:

* Noah (The Flood) - God gave Noah 120 years notice then a final 7 days' notice.
* Abraham & Lot (Sodom & Gomorrah) - God gave them 1 days' notice.
* Joseph (In Egypt) - God gave him 7 years' notice.
* Jonah (Nineveh) - God gave 40 days' notice.
* Jeremiah (Judah) - God gave continuous warnings & the 70 years' prophesy.
* True Believers (Church) - The Holy Bible tells us in Genesis 7:10-11 that on the 17th day of the 2nd month of that year God shut the door of the ark. May 21, 2011 is the 17th day of the 2nd month of the Biblical calendar of our day
2 Kings 2:9
"When they had crossed, Elijah said to Elisha, “Tell me, what can I do for you before I am taken from you?”

Yes he did and even the other prophets knew. The time now drew near when Elijah was to be taken up into heaven (2 Kings 2:1-12). He had a presentiment of what was awaiting him. He went down to Gilgal, where was a school of the prophets, and where his successor Elisha, whom he had anointed some years before, resided. Elisha was solemnized by the thought of his master's leaving him, and refused to be parted from him. "They two went on," and came to Bethel and Jericho, and crossed the Jordan, the waters of which were "divided hither and thither" when smitten with Elijah's mantle. Arrived at the borders of Gilead, which Elijah had left many years before, it "came to pass as they still went on and talked" they were suddenly separated by a chariot and horses of fire; and "Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven, "Elisha receiving his mantle, which fell from him as he ascended.
