Hebrews Chapter One: Commentary


    1: By various portions and different modes THE GOD Yahweh [1] [who] spoke to [our] ancestors through the prophets[2] 2: has in these last days spoken to us by his [human Risen] Son who [in his humanity Colossians 2:9 is] appointed heir of all things By whom also  [the] eons are made Colossians 1:16-17 3: [He] Who is the radiance of Glory and emblem of the same [Divine] substance hypostasis [arrayed beside] and upholding all things by the WORD of HIS Jesus’  power when HE had by himself purged our sins sat down on the right hand as Mediator [in his perpetual humanity] of the Majesty on high 4: [In his humanity] Being made so much better[3] than the angels as he has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. 5: For to which of the angels[4] said he at any time Thou art my Son this day have I begotten thee And again I will be to him a Father and he shall[5] be to me a Son 6: And again when he brings in the firstbegotten into the world he says And let all the angels of God worship him Only God receives worship. The angels will worship no one but the ALMIGHTY. Jesus is Jehovah. 7: And indeed toward the angels says Who makes his angels blasts and his officials flames of fire? 8: But to the Son he says Thy throne O God [There is only ONE  God] is for ever and ever A sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of your kingdom 9: you love justice and hate lawlessness therefore God even your God [conversation within the Godhead] hath anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows 10: And you LORD[6] YHWH in the beginning have laid the foundation of the earth and the heavens are the works of your hands 11: They shall be destroyed but you continue and they shall all grow old as does a garment 12: And as a veil you shall fold them up and they shall be changed But you yet are the same [Yesterday, today, and forever] and your years shall not fail 13: But to which of the angels said he at any time Sit on my right hand until I make your enemies thy footstool 14: Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation





[1] The God [who spoke by the prophets] is…
Yahweh: Jesus is Yahweh [1 Timothy 3:6 God was manifest in the flesh, Acts 20:28 “God’s Church which he (God) purchased with his own blood]
Jehovah: Jesus is Jehovah [John 1:1 In the beginning was the WORD and the WORD was with God and the WORD  WAS GOD]
Adonay Elohiym: Jesus is Adonay Elohiym [John 20:28, And Thomas answered and said to him, “My Lord (Adonay) and my God (Elohiym)]

ALL the fullness of the GODHEAD dwells in Jesus in PHYSICAL FORM [Colossians 2:9]


[2] The Greek words patrasin or patēr, depending on which text one reads, are both defined by Strong’s as the same word [G3962], and are usually translated as “father,” but not always. Depending on context, the words can refer to both parents or to ancestors in general. Therefore, it is encumbent upon the reader to determine context and which usage is most accurate in a verse or passage. In Hebrews 1:1, the word ancestor is most accurate, as the prophets did not speak only to the patriarchs [Abraham, Issac, Jacob] but to all of the people—both women and men.


[3] Jesus is made BETTER than the angels, not just a human with higher ranking than the angels but BETTER, because all of the fullness of the Godhead resides in Jesus in physical form. Jesus is not half-god and half-human [like the mythical Greek gods] but from the moment he entered the kosmos, and through-out eternity, he is fully God and fully human.

[4] Some teach that Jesus is Michael the archangel. Jesus is not an angel. “For to which of the angels did he say ‘Thou art my Son This day have I begotten thee?” The angels are all created beings, but the babe born of a virgin was begotten/conceived and born—not created. The man Christ Jesus is a genetic child of Mary and a genetic child of YAHWEH. Wouldn’t we love to see his DNA? !!!


[5] Verse five tells us that Jesus was not always the Son but rather became the Son when he entered the kosmos.

Psalm 2:6-7 “Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion I will declare the decree YAHWEH has said unto me Thou art my Son this day have I begotten thee.” The only way Eternal Sonship could be true, is if Psalm 2 is not a prophecy but rather speaks of a day in Heaven when Jesus was created. But Jesus is YAHWEH—the Creator—not one of his creations. Also, in eternity, there are no days. Days belong only to time, not to eternity. Hebrews chapter one declares that the entrance of THE WORD John 1:1 into the kosmos is the fulfillment of Psalm chapter 2, and that entrance was when THE WORD became THE SON. The prophecy, written by David, was fulfilled on a day in time [not in eternity].
Recap: On a day in time—in the kosmos, not Heaven—THE WORD became the Son. The Sonship of Jesus derives—entirely—from his holy conception as a human. His sonship is incarnational and from his conception on, perpetual.

Matthew 24 Commentary Jesus DID & DOES Know the Day and Hour


 1: And coming out the [Messiah/Anointed One] [1] Jesus and departed from the temple and his disciples came to him to show him the buildings of the temple 2: And Jesus said to them Do you not understand all these things Matthew 23:33-38 Truly I say to you There shall not be left here one stone upon another that shall not be thrown down Referencing Titus A.D. 70 3: And as he sat upon the Mount of Olives the disciples came to him privately saying Tell us [1] when shall these things be verse :2 and [2] what shall be the sign[s?] of your coming and [3] of the end [of the] age 4: And Jesus answered and said to them The following things all happen in Revelation chapter 6, which is a chronological overview of the Great Tribulation Take heed that no one lead you astray 5: For many shall come in my name saying I am THE ANOINTED [one] Messiah King and shall lead many astray 6: And you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars See that you be not alarmed [for it is] binding [by the decree of God that] all these must come to pass but the consummation[2] Revelation 19:11-16 is not yet 7: For nations shall rise against nations and kingdoms against kingdoms[3] and there shall be famines and diseases and earthquakes in various places 8: All these are the beginnings of the birth pangs that will culminate in the nation of Israel being BORN AGAIN Isaiah 66:8-11, Ezekiel 37:1-14 9: After that they shall give you up into affliction and shall kill you and you Jesus’ disciples, Israel/Jews –Zechariah 12:3 shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake 10: And then shall many be entrapped and shall betray one another and shall hate one another 11: And many false prophets shall arise and shall lead many astray Matthew 15:14, Revelation 16:13-14 12: And because sin will be multiplied the love of many shall grow cold Isaiah 3:4-5, 2 Timothy 3:1-5 13: But the one who perseveres to the consummation the same shall be saved[4] 14: And this Good News of The Kingdom [5] shall be preached in all the home-[world][6] for a witness to all nations and after that the finish shall come 15: When you because of this shall see the Abomination of Desolation spoken of by Daniel Daniel 9:27 the prophet stand in the Holy Place 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4,  those who read let them understand 16: then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains 17: Let them who are on the housetops not come down to take any thing out of their houses 18: Neither let them who are in the fields return back to take their clothes [7] 19: And woe to those who are with child and to them that nurse [babies] in those days[8]  20: Be praying yet that your flight be not in the winter neither on the sabbath day[9] 21: For then shall be great affliction such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time no nor ever shall be [again] [10] 22: And except those days should be shortened there should no flesh be saved But for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened 23: Then if any one shall say to you Lo here is Christ or there believe it not 24: For there shall arise pseudochristos and pseudoprophētēs false christs/false prophets and produce great [miracles] signs and wonders [11] so that if possible shall deceive the very elect 25: See I have told you before[hand] 26: Because of this if they shall say to you Behold he is in the desert go not forth behold he is in the secret chambers believe it not 27: For as the lightning comes out of the east and shines even to the west so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be[12] Revelation 19:11-14 28: For where the corpses are Armageddon there will the eagles be gathered together[13] Revelation 19:17 The largest death toll of any battle in the history of the world will take place in the valley of Megiddon Isaiah 63:1-4, Zechariah 12:11, Revelation 14:19-20/19:11-16, The final battle in the final conflict will also include an atomic bomb. Following that, there will be a seven year clean-up of contaminated bodies that will require special handling. One possibility is that Iran and/or Korea will deploy their nuclear capabilities. 29: Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun shall be darkened and the moon shall not give her light Isaiah 13:10 There is a suggestion here, of total darkness for a least 24 hours (or could be referring to opposite sides of the earth, where it is day in one part of the world and night in another. Darkness covered the land  of Egypt for three days and also for three hours when Jesus died on the cross.There will be another period of total darkness immediately prior to his Second Coming. This will partly explain the “Brightness” of his coming and the stars Job 38:7,  Isaiah 13:6-13, Revelation 12:4 shall fall from the heavens and the [angelic] powers of the heavens shall be shaken Romans 8:38, Ephesians 6:12 God created every star. He knows the number of each star. And he calls each star by name Psalm 147:4. There is some connection between the stars of the heavens and angels, though they are completely separate entities Job 38:7. Could it be, that as Elohiym, created the angels, one by one, each magnificent, powerful, and unique in his own right, he also formed a star and gave each star the name of its corresponding angelic creation? Could this be the reason angels are sometimes called “stars” in scripture? As the angels are an innumerable host, so are the stars. 30: After the sun stops shining and the moon refuses to give its light, the darkness shall be broken… And then shall appear the Sign of the Son of Man the Cross in the heavens and then shall all the tribes of the land mourn Zechariah 12:10-14 identifies these as tribes of Israel The sign of the Son of Man—the Cross—will open a portal between Heaven and earth, and coming through that portal… and they shall see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of Heaven Hebrews 12:1, Jude 14-15, Revelation 1:7 with power and great glory Revelation 1:7 31: And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet and they shall gather together his elect The ungathered Jewish elect Ezekiel 28:25-26 from the four winds from one end of heaven to the other They will be brought to Israel 32: Now learn the parable of the fig tree Representing physical/geographic Israel When the branch is yet tender and puts forth leaves you know that summer is near Jeremiah 8:20 33: So likewise you when you shall see all these things know that it [2nd Coming] is near even at the doors[14] 34: truly I say to you this race [the Jewish race] shall not perish [and][15] all these things [shall] be fulfilled35: The heavens and earth shall perish [Perish in the sense that they will no longer exist in their present form but be changed into the New Heavens/New Earth Psalm 102:25-28] but MY WORD shall not perish 36: But of that day and hour Resurrection/Rapture. We know this because of verses 37-39 no human has known[16]  No not the angels of Heaven but my Father only 37: But as the days of Noe were so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be 38: For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking marrying and giving in marriage[17] until the day that Noe entered into the ark type of rapture—1 Corinthians 15:51-52, 2 Thessalonians 4:16-17 [comfort one another with these words] 39: And knew not until the flood came and took them all away so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be 2nd Coming physical and visible return to the earth—Revelation 1:7 [and all the families of the earth shall wail because of him] 40: Then shall two be in the field the one shall be taken and the other left 41: Two shall be grinding at the mill the one shall be taken and the other left 42: Watch because of this for you know not what hour your Lord does come 43: But know this that if the owner[s] of the house had known in what watch the thief would come they would have watched and would not have allowed the house to be broken up 44: Because of this you also be ready for in such an hour as you do not expect the Son of Man comes 45: Who then is a faithful and wise slave whom the master has made ruler over the household to give them food in due season[18] 46: Happy are those slaves whom their lord when HE COMES shall find so doing 47: Truly I say to you that he shall make them them rulers over all his goods 48: But and if those evil slaves shall say in their hearts My lord delays His Coming Matthew 25:8 49: And shall begin to beat their fellow-slaves and to eat and drink with the drunken 50: The lord of those slaves shall come in a day when they do not expect him and in an hour they do not see coming 51: And shall cut them off and appoint them their portion with the hypocrites There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth


[1] In the Berry Interlinear [based on the Greek text of Stephens 1550] and in the scrTR [1894], The Greek definite article  “O/ho” which means “the” appears before the word “Iesous” from which the name “Jesus” is derived through transliteration [as opposed to translation (see footnote for Matthew 1:1). The presence of the definite article in this verse [preceding the name Iesous] is significant, yet it remains untranslated in English translations. This is unfortunate as the Greek text of this verse shows that the word “Jesus,” though transliterated from the Hebrew YHWSHUA is not always a name, but in some instances a title that means Messiah. Otherwise “The Jesus” makes no sense. Scholars who read the texts know of “The Iesous,” but it would have been better had the common people also been privy to this distinction between a translated name and a transliterated title.  

[2] The consummation is the Second Coming of Christ to the earth Revelation 19:11-16

[3] There are a few European kingdoms/monarchies [in addition to the U.K.] and also monarchies/kingdoms in the Middle East [Jordan and Saudi Arabia to name a few].

[4] Calling on the name of the Lord to be saved and enduring to the end to be saved are two different things, and we can’t have it both ways. So what did Jesus mean when he said a person must persist to the consummation to be saved? The consummation of what? The consummation of our natural lives? What is it a person must endure to the consummation of to be saved? 

We get some help from the prophet Joel concerning this seeming contradiction to the free gift of salvation based on faith and “not works lest any should boast.”  Joel predicted a time when God’s people would be able to call on him to be saved. This was not possible in Joel’s time. After Jesus rose from the dead, a great outpouring of God’s Spirit happened on the day of Pentecost. Peter confirmed that the experience of the 120 in the upper room [which ended up by spilling out into a huge street meeting]  was a fulfillment of what Joel had predicted. 

The time had finally come when people could simply “call” upon the Lord and be saved [received assurance of Eternal Life]. Three thousand plus people were born again on the Day of Pentecost by calling out in faith upon the name of the Lord. 

So, if that is the case, and salvation is for the asking with assurance that we possess Eternal Life now 1 John 5:11-12 where do the words of Jesus about “enduring to the consummation” come into play? How do we rightly discern between Jesus, Joel, and Paul, who appear to contradict each other?

The conflict is resolved when we understand that, in this verse, Jesus is not referring to same time period Joel and Paul reference Joel 2, Ephesians 2 [Accepted Time 2 Corinthians 6:1-2] but rather to The Time of Jacob’s Trouble Jeremiah also known as The Great Tribulation, at the end of which Jesus will physically and visibly return and establish his Everlasting Kingdom Daniel 2:44

We are presently living in the time Peter heralded on that long ago Day of Pentecost, which initiated the Dispensation [or Age] of Grace—the time of Christ in You, that was initiated by the Holy Spirit descending and remaining (taking up residence within the bodies of Believers). Later on, the apostle Paul confirmed that our bodies are now the Temple of God. 

The time of “Christ in You” had its beginning on the first Feast of Shavuot following the crucifixion of Christ. It is commonly known among Christians, as the “Day of Pentecost.” This Feast of the Lord is also known as the Feast of Weeks and occurs 50 days after Passover. Pentecost is a Greek word meaning “fifty.”

Shavuot is a harvest feast, and this is significant. Because, the Day of Pentecost/Shavuot kicked off the greatest age of harvest this world has ever known or ever will know. At the time of this writing, we are still living in the time of God’s great harvest…and that harvest is saved souls, won to Christ and supernaturally translated by the power of the Holy Spirit from the Kingdom of Darkness into the Kingdom of God’s Dear Son.

There are three harvest feasts that represent and predict the time people can simply call on the name of the Lord to be saved, the "Accepted Time," the "Time of Favor, the "Age of Grace" (the time we are living in as this is being written): 1.) First-fruits 2.) Shavuot/Pentecost 3.) Trumpets/Rosh Hashanah.

The three stages of harvest (soul winning and in-gathering) that these feasts predict and represent are 1.) Jesus the First Fruits from the dead 2.) Shavuot/Pentecost, which is the main harvest following the First Fruits. Paul called this the Time of Favor. This is the time Joel predicted that calling on the Name of the Lord for salvation would be possible. It is the time Jesus referenced when he said, “Look around you! The fields are ripe for the harvest! Pray the Lord of the Harvest will send forth laborers into HIS harvest!  3.) Rosh Hashana; the Feast of Trumpets also called the Feast of In-Gathering. This feast consummates the main harvest with the sound of a Trumpet. Those “In Christ” will be gathered. The dead in Christ shall rise first, then the living will be changed and caught up to meet the Lord in the air. 

With Rosh Hashana the main harvest is finished, and after that, come the gleanings. This happens during the Feast of the Lord called the Day of Atonement. It is during the time this feast predicts and represents, that “persevering to the consummation” will be the only way to be saved. This “Time of Trouble” will follow “the Accepted Time” and the two will be separated by the Resurrection/Rapture. It was to the Time of Jacob’s Trouble that Jesus was referring to when he said one must, “persevere to the consummation” to be saved Daniel 12:11-12

This is written about in detail in the book, REDEMPTION: Bible Prophecy Simplified.

The great harvest of the past 2000 years, will be gathered in at the Resurrection of the Dead in Christ and the Catching Up those living IN HIM at the time of his coming in the air 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18. This is predicted in the *Feast of the Trumpets—Rosh Hashanah—which is a two day feast.  

After that, come the gleanings during the Time of Jacob’s Trouble, the Great Tribulation—the time Jeremiah predicted people would say “The summer is over; the harvest is ended, and we are not saved.”

When Jesus said, “They that endure to the end will be saved,” he was referring to those left behind when the main harvest of the Feast of Weeks is finally gathered in at the Feast of Trumpets (Resurrection/Rapture).  

At the time of this writing, we are living in the time of “Christ in You,” the “Age of Grace,” and anyone can call upon the name of the Lord and receive forgiveness of sins/ Eternal Life [be saved] Romans  10:9-13

Those who do not call upon the Name of the Lord during the time of  “Christ IN You,” and are alive during the Time of Jacob’s Trouble (foretold by the Feast of Lord, the Day of Atonement), must “persevere to the consummation” at which time, those who have endured and are still alive, when Jesus returns, will experience a dramatic deliverance. The gleanings (those who are left alive after the main harvest) will be gathered in after the main harvest is completed. The only other options during that horrific time will be to provide, comfort, provision, and protection for Jews and Christians or to die for refusing to take the Mark of allegiance to the Man of Sin Matthew 10:39-42, Matthew 25:31-46, Revelation 14:13.

*The book, REDEMPTION: Bible Prophecy Simplified, is a detailed study of Bible prophecy based on the Feasts of the Lord that this writer also calls, the “Prophetic Feasts of Hope.” There are seven of them, and they are all about God’s REDEMPTION of our bodies, souls, and the earth, through his risen Son, Jesus the Messiah. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0979429331

[5] During the Great Tribulation/Time of Jacob’s Trouble Jeremiah 30:7 of which Jesus is referencing in this passage, it is the Everlasting Gospel of the Kingdom that will be preached. How many pastors, teachers, evangelists, etc.. are preaching the Good News of THE KINGDOM? Even though, during this present Time of Favor, the Good News [the Gospel of Grace] is being preached [whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved Acts 2], as it should be, the Gospel of the Kingdom should not be neglected. The Kingdom of God is presently within us Luke 17:20-21, but there is a physical kingdom coming Matthew 20:20-23. The time is coming [during The Indignation/Great Tribulation Isaiah 26:20-21] that whoever loses their lives for HIS his sake and “endures to the end,” will be saved, either by dying for him or by being faithful to him until the day he returns and are alive at His Second Coming, when Jesus physically and visibly comes out of Heaven with his armies to defeat his enemies and establish his physical Kingdom here on earth. This is the Gospel of the Kingdom that Jesus preached the first time he  came. This is the kingdom the prophets foretold. The Good News of the Kingdom will once again be “front and center” after the Resurrection/Rapture, during the Time of Jacob’s Trouble.

[6] Jesus referred to the uniqueness of earth and its human inhabitants when he called earth the “Home-world.” This is significant as the teaching of the multiverse is now popular among secular humanists, as is the teaching that that are likely other planets like earth and that humans are simply highly evolved primates, no more special than any other animal. Jesus said our planet is special by referring to it as oikoumene. The first part of the word is “oiko” or “oikou” meaning “home.” Yet scholars consistently leave this part of the word untranslated thinking it is insignificant, but it is not. 

The word usually translated as world in Matthew 24:14 actually means “home-world.” James Strong took an educated guess as to the biblical meaning of oikoumene [G3625]. But he was mistaken. 

At least one interlinear translates the word oikoumene correctly as home-[world], which is proved to be both correct and significant in light of evolutionist errors concerning the uniqueness of both humans [created in the image of God] and our [Goldie-locks] planet, created just for humanity. Many unbelieving scientists strive to figure out some other reason besides a loving Creator as to why planet earth appears to be fine-tuned for life—which it is!  In this one verse, Jesus differentiates earth from all other planets in the entire universe by calling it the home-[world]. There is only “home”-world in all creation, and that is planet earth. It was made just for us.    


[7] When the Abomination of Desolation [spoken of by Daniel] makes its appearance, the devastation will be so sudden, there will literally be no time to prepare. Jesus had only one thing to say to those in Israel and most especially Jerusalem (He used the word Judaea, because that name described what is now the Nation of Israel. If he had used the name Israel at that time, the people of Judaea would not have identified with it. For centuries, from the time of David’s grandson on, Jerusalem had been located in the Kingdom of Judah—not Israel). 

The two nations of Israel and Judah, were only unified as one nation under the name Israel in 1948, when God restored his people back to their land. And this was predicted in Ezekiel 37:16-19. The restored and unified Nation of Israel marks the first and only time in history that any nation was revived after being dead for 2500 years.

By identifying the event (Daniel’s prophecy about the abomination that causes desolation) and saying, when you see that, RUN!” Jesus both confirmed and interpreted Daniel 9:27, where Daniel said the abomination that will come upon the desolate will come on “wings.” It will fly in swiftly. It will happen suddenly and bring fierce and utter desolation with it. In Paul’s letter to the congregation at Thessalonica, even more details about this future event are given. It will be both a political and religious coup. That is why the reign of the antichrist will cost many people their very souls Matthew 15:26:27.

[8] The reference to Daniel and the abomination of Desolation, places this as a mid-tribulation verse. This is a prophetic warning to a future generation of Jews [and Christians who will be living in Israel in the latter days]. The geographic center is the Temple [Holy Place] in Jerusalem, which will be rebuilt. Plans are being made for the rebuilding of the Temple as this is being written.
 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WSJi2o2VzI Approximately 1:15 seconds into this four minute video. There is a very short [and silent] clip of the Netanyahu and Pompeo along with a small political and religious delegation viewing the scale model of the future Temple that Israel plans to rebuild and that the Bible says will be rebuilt.

[9] Fleeing in winter will understandably be dangerous due to exposure, but why did Jesus warn people to pray their flight will not take place on a Sabbath day? One possibly is that unlike ancient peoples who would would flee on foot or with horse-drawn carts, modern citizens of Jerusalem [and Israel] will use vehicles that need gasoline. They would need to have a full tank and also carry extra fuel with them. In Israel, many businesses are closed on Sabbath days. If the coup takes place on a Sabbath day, many of those attempting to flee will be trapped in the cities.

[10] This is the verse where the “Great Tribulation” gets its name. This particular time period is synonymous with the the “Time of Jacob’s Trouble” Jeremiah predicted. This is not a reference to the sacking of Jerusalem in A. D. 70. 

[11] God is and always will be a miracle-working God, but there are also lying wonders. Jesus warned that miracles will be associated with The Man of Sin, and this is confirmed in the Revelation Revelation 13:12-14, 16:13-14

[12] How visible and brilliant is lightning? No one will need to hear second-hand that Messiah has returned to earth. He will come in power and great glory Matthew 24:30. The Second Coming of Christ will be the most observable and dazzling event in the history of the world. Every eye shall see him Revelation 1:7.
[13] Revelation 19 tells of the great slaughter that will take place at the battle of Armageddon and of the influx of eagles that will feast on the dead bodies.
 
[14] Jesus was speaking of the Time of Jacob’s Trouble/The Great Tribulation, here. We know this, in part, because, among other things, what he described in Matthew twenty-four perfectly parallel the things John saw in The Revelation [the Apokalypsis chapter six]. This writer believes everything in Revelation chapter six to be post-Resurrection/Rapture. 

The reasons for this are covered [in detail] in the book, REDEMPTION: Bible Prophecy Simplified

[15] Lexicon :: Strong's G302 – ἄν/an  has no exact English equivalent and frequently goes untranslated, but it is certain that it does not mean “till.” Grammatically, it is difficult to understand how translating the Greek particle “ἄν” into the English preposition “till” was ever considered acceptable. Contextually and taken together with other passages, we know the Jewish race will never pass away/perish. Yet incorrectly translating “ἄν” into “till,” insinuates that they will. Jesus made no such insinuation but rather made an emphatic statement regarding the Jewish race—the physical descendants of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob—confirming the promises and the prophecies that his progeny would inhabit the earth forever.

[16] Lexicon :: Strong's G1492 - eidō

 The word “know” or “perceive” in this verse, is translated from the Greek word εἴδω / eídō, which is pronounced i'-do; eídō is a primary verb used only in certain past tenses. Therefore, insinuating a future tense by translating the word eídō as “can know” is misleading. Jesus was saying that up until the time of his earthly ministry, no one [not even angels] except his father—YHWH—[the Godhead] knew the day or hour of his coming. 

At the time Jesus spoke these words, he himself, knew both the day and the hour, and he had always known it because Jesus is YHWH. Jesus is the Eternal [Everlasting] Father—Father of Eternity.


William Cooke D.D. made a solid argument that it was the revelation of that knowledge and not the knowledge itself that was not given to the Son to reveal. Jesus, Very God, YHWH, certainly knew all things, but on more that one occasion said it was not time to reveal everything to his followers –Christian Theology Doctrines and Ordinances Explained and Defended 1879.  

 
[17] Jesus was not mandating that daughters be given in marriage by their fathers or other male guardians, he was simply stating what was the current state of things past, present, and future. In the book of Genesis, Rebekah was the one who made the choice to go with Isaac’s servant and marry Isaac, a man she had never met. Neither her mother nor her father participated in that decision in any way. 

[18] Proverbs 31: The virtuous woman is also a servant who rises “while it is yet night and gives meat to her household.” The meat referred to in Proverbs 31 is not cooking breakfast, she has servants and maidens to do that. It is spiritual meat. Jesus said that to do the will of His Father was meat to Him (John 4:34).
