* * * * *

 

“When the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth His Son.”

Providence had directed the movements of nations, and the tide of human impulse and influence, until the world was ripe for the coming of the Deliverer. 

The nations were united under one government.  One language was widely spoken, and was everywhere recognized as the language of literature.  From all lands the Jews of the dispersion gathered to Jerusalem to the annual feasts.  As these returned to the places of their sojourn, they could spread throughout the world the tidings of the Messiah’s coming.  {DA 32.2}

At this time the systems of heathenism were losing their hold upon the people. 

Men were weary of pageant and fable.  They longed for a religion that could satisfy the heart.  While the light of truth seemed to have departed from among men, there were souls who were looking for light, and who were filled with perplexity and sorrow.  They were thirsting for a knowledge of the living God, for some assurance of a life beyond the grave.  {DA 32.3}

 

You will have noticed that no mention is made of a year.  It was based on the condition of the people, for that is God's clock.  All those who attempt to set the Second Coming by an event or a year are, at best, wasting their effort, or at worst, misleading the people of God badly.  And to add contempt to insult, it is written that ONLY God the Father (not even the Son) will ever tell us when the Second Coming is to happen.  Matthew 24:36.
