Why is the time/date of Messiah’s 2nd-Advent, “that day,” known only by the Father?

Why is the time/date of Messiah’s 2nd-Advent, “that day,” known only by the Father? Does this fact not negate the omniscience, deity, of Messiah and the Holy Spirit?

Jesus said,

35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.

36 “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. 37 For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Matthew 24 (ESV)


The Father, Son, the Holy Spirit, are One-God in essence and Three-distinct Persons who are introduced as “Elohim” (Genesis 1:1); The Father, Son and Spirit are coequal in all divine attributes while order, structure, honor, is integral within the Trinity,

Father – Administrator

Son – Creator, Warrior, Messiah, Judge

Holy Spirit – Logistics

The Father has been granted supreme authority over “that day” as the Father has ordained that “free will” reign supreme in both the angelic and human creation; therefore, “that day” is not only subject to the Father’s volition but “that day” is fluid as a result of “free will.”

The rapidly approaching “fullness of the Gentiles” who will enter the Kingdom and trigger “that day” (Romans 11:25) is wholly subject to “free will” as the Father is patient with all not desiring that anyone perish in Hell but that all men and women come to a knowledge of the Truth and find salvation in the Son through faith (1 Timothy 2:4).

The Father, Himself, alone, knows the specific number of Gentiles who will enter the Kingdom and when that number has been fulfilled the final 3.5-years of the Tribulation Era will commence and nearing its conclusion “that day” will manifest with Messiah’s 2nd-Advent to Mount Olivette where the Nations of Russia, China, Islam/Iran (an Islamic coalition) will have gathered to commence a nuclear conflict with Israel seeking Israel’s complete demise. Messiah Jesus will rescue Israel in “that day” void any assistance, intervention, from the kings and rulers of the Earth; this victory will initiate Messiah’s Millennial Reign.

The obedience of the Son and the Spirit to the Father’s authority and His prerogative to command the supremacy of free will to govern the timing of “that day” in no way diminishes the deity and sovereignty of the Son and the Holy Spirit within the Godhead but provides for us a divine example of “faith” that we should be expressing daily in our walk with Messiah through sanctification via the Holy Spirit’s leadership as the Spirit prepares the faithful in Jesus for service in the New Jerusalem.
