This is a popular saying among many Christians, which is incorrect, because when Jesus said No man know the hour or day, he was stating a Jewish idiom to do with the sighting of the new moon at the Rosh Hashanah and is incorrectly quoted by many Christians. I can very quickly nullify what you have said with two scriptures, which say that we can know the hour.
Firstly 1Th 5:4-9 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. (5) Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. (6) Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. (7) For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. (8) But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. (9) For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
We are not in darkness that this day will overtake us.
Secondly Rev 3:2-5 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. (3) Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. (4) Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. (5) He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
In both of these portions of scripture you will note the call to watch, this is the key for every believer to be part of the rapture, to watch and be sober and this day will not overtake us, also pray that we will escape what is coming on the world. If we will not watch this day will come us as a thief and we will not know the hour the Lord Jesus will come upon us, but if we watch then the above scripture tells me that we will know the hour. The reason why many Christians will not make the rapture is because they are not watching and discerning the times we are living in, continuing to walk after the flesh.
The Lord bless you and keep looking up!

"Serious Thought To All Doves!!!"
Number one: Dr. Owuor mentioned the Rapture happening on one of his revivals. This bothers me a little as Jesus said that NO MAN KNOW THE HOUR OR DAY. Dr. Owuor stated many times on his You tube clip that he knows which revival this will happen in. Thus telling us that God told him the DAY, and maybe the hour as well??? My alarm bells went off. I also noticed his video about the Unrest in Israel, and how DETAILED he was as to what is about to come on May 15th? I felt it was a little too detailed. Now, don't get me wrong, I admire Dr. Ownour for all the lost souls he has brought to God, but this verse keeps popping into my head all day. If not even the elect would be deceived. You all know which verse I am talking about?? I pray to God that Dr. Owunor is not the deceiver???? All I can say to everyone is to just listen to what he has to say, but always remember to test the spirits when he gives us a new prophecy. He may be a prophet, but he also may be a deceiver??? My heart is broken from this, I admire him so much, but there are a couple of things he has mentioned that is making the Holy Spirit inside me very uncomfortable. I just felt the need to post this and to make everyone aware of this.
Number two, I have also noticed Dr. Ownour took down the India revival for May 14- 15th. I thought this was interesting as I have said from the beginning of this letter that he knows which revival the Rapture would happen. Also, Israel turns 63 which means we only have 7 years left, and the Islamic are going to march up to Israel on that day as well. Too much of a coindince wouldn't you say????? So, I think to be on the safe side, we need to make sure we are right with God before May 14th. Just in case?? Thank you all for reading my thoughts and opinions. Inputs are welcomed as always this is how we all learn? YSIC Jennie
