Setting the Date for the Return of Christ

You would think people would learn...setting the date for the return of Jesus Christ is not a good idea.  The most recent entrant into this fool's errand is Tim Warner's The Time of the End.  

On a blog promoting this book (see HERE) I posted this comment:

In reference to being able to know the time of Christ's return a great and well-authenticated Bible scholar said this:

"It is evident that, in the minds of most Christians today, Matt. 24:36 is believed to prohibit anyone from being able to see the day of our Lord's return approaching.  Matt. 24:36 states that 'No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.'  In looking at this statement, you can easily see that it is impossible to know the exact day and hour of the Lord Jesus' return....However, this does not preclude or prevent the faithful from knowing the year, the month, and the week of the Lord's return."

This model biblical scholar further stressed the importance of his analysis by carefully corroborating his model of prediction with many others.  He wrote:

"We see many people of God coming up with the same time, some by dreams, some by visions, some by words from God, and others have calculated it out as we have.  Irregardless of how the information is obtained it all agrees that Jesus is coming September 1988.  Unlike the wrong date-setters of the past who were only single voices, this message has many voices."
