This has the potential to be a very interesting and informative discussion. However, written in its current form, it is far too vague and even somewhat incorrect in details to answer properly. I do not want to "translate" the question. I wonder if Simon might consider re-phrasing it himself so that we would better be able to reply.
1."thief in the night" reference? context?
2."1844" - where in the bible is 1844 referenced ? messianistic promises (every year is the year of the messiah, visit Hyde park and see, why select mid-eighteenth century in particular, and how does this relate to the question? and to Baha'i?
3. "Great Disappointment of 1844" reference and context ?
4. Different religions point to a messianic return not only have given different dates but many different dates, none of which have proven true. Why does Simon ask for a reconciliation of the irreconcilable? I am certain there is something important here, but I do not see it as it is phrased.
Allah u abha!
