“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.”  Matthew 24:36

“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.  Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is.”  Mark 13: 32 – 33

Then, the Bible further tells us that His return will be “as a thief in the night”, and this is mentioned more than once.

“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night…” 2 Peter 3:10

“For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.”  1 Thessalonians 5:2
