Why does the bible say, 'Only the Father knows the hour'?

The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one!! So why does the Bible say only the Father knows the hour and the day?

Matthew 24:36

NKJV - 36 But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.

The day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.(Mt.24:36,Marl 13:32)

This verse proves that Christ was limited in knowledge while in the days of His FLESH ONLY (Mt. 24:36; Lk. 2:40,52; Php. 2:7). Now he was exalted above all. He is coequal to God the Father.

Jesus humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Christ humbled Himself from the divine form to human form, and from sinless humanity to sinful and corrupt infamy--even the death of the cross, bearing the sins of all men (Php. 2:8; 1Pet. 2:24). 

However God hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name after resurrection
Seven steps in His exaltation: 

1. God highly exalted Him (Php. 2:9; Eph. 1:21). 
2. God gave Him a name above all (Php. 2:9). 
3. At the mere mention of His name, every knee must bow (Php. 2:10). 
4. Everything in heaven must bow (Php. 2:10). 
5. Everything in earth must bow (Php. 2:10). 
6. Everything under the earth must bow (Php. 2:10). 
7. Every tongue confess His Lordship to the glory of God the Father (Php. 2:11).

Now God the Father, the son and the Holy Spirit are all united as ONE. 
Now whatever God knows, the son and the Spirit of God know the same.

When the living temple falls, we will know there are 3 days left. The two witnesses know who they are. They know they have to fall to release the spirit. They know that they have to be killed, imprisoned, hide, starve, and be severely persecuted until enough blood has been spent or the day is done. The 4th day is only a year long. 

The suffering temple may not know the second.
The suffering temple may not know the minute.
The suffering temple may not know the hour.
The suffering temple may not know the day.
The suffering temple may not know the week or the month. 

The suffering temple knows the year. The day is a year long. The resurrection of the dead and the living is on the 8th day.
