To read the Bible in a year, read Matthew 24.23–51 on February 7, In the year of our Lord 2016

Many people teach that just before Jesus returns, we shall see signs of His imminent return, but He taught otherwise,
“But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left” (Matthew 24.37–41).
According to the Lord Jesus, people will be oblivious to His return on that day. They will keep doing things as they have always done, not expecting that anything will change.
Therefore, it is imperative that we live prepared lives, always anticipating His return, so that He will not catch us unaware.
