What part of Matthew 24:36 do date-setters not understand? “But as for that day and hour no one knows it—not even the angels in heaven–except the Father alone.”
Recently, I posted why everyone should stay far away from Steven Anderson’s material.
Here is another good reason. Anderson justifies a date-setting schema saying:
“Have I not made clear that I believe the rapture takes place at the 6th seal?…The 6th seal is opened 1335 days into Daniel’s 70th week. That is not “date-setting” since we do not know the start date of Daniel’s 70th week.” (source)
In other words, Anderson believes the rapture will take place 75 days after the midpoint. He claims that Matthew 24:36 only applies to those living before the seven-year period——but for believers during the seven-year period, especially after the midpoint, they will know the exact day and hour.
Not only is this twisted and no evidence at all for this, but I would argue that Matthew 24:36 contains more application for believers during the seven-year period, since the immediate context is the great tribulation.
Here is another statement from Anderson’s twisted date-setting logic:
Did Jesus say, “No one will EVER know the day or the hour.”? Will we know the day or the hour after it happens?”
Anderson reasons that since we will know the day and hour after it happens, we can therefore know before it happens. This is simply goofy reasoning. And just goes to show the desperation of some “prophesy teachers” to justify their pet theories.
