Question: Acts 1:7 'And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.' Is this verse a confirmation that when Jesus said He did not know the time of His coming, it was for the Father only and His power?

Answer: During the days of His flesh, the process of knowing and understanding the details of God's plan was progressive. For example, no one would think that the two-year-old Jesus knew as much as the thirty-year-old Jesus. So, over time the Spirit was gradually revealing things to the Son. Apparently the time of His second coming was information He had not yet received from the Spirit. Unlike some people we know, Jesus was humble enough to admit that He didn't have all the answers at that moment.
