the Lord’s return will confound…

Apostle Peter Preaching by Lorenzo Veneziano (date unknown)

2 Peter 3:10-18:

Since only God knows the length of the eleventh hour, the Lord’s return will confound all human calculations of its timing. The simile of the thief in the night, for instance, must not be taken literally, because it is never nighttime everywhere at the same time, and the Bible contains no hint that the Lord will return to the earth by following the sequence of its appointed time zones!
