Signs of the Times

Verse of the month 

“…Become complete. Be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace;
and the God of love and peace will be with you.”
(2 Corinthians 13:11 NKJV)
February 1st, 2017 

Scripture Reading:  Matthew 16:1-4 

“A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign;
and there shall be no sign given unto it…”
(Matthew 16:4). 

Signs of the Times    

Each February 2nd, America watches a small gathering of people in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania as they seek a sign from a groundhog concerning the weather for the next six weeks.  With all the television lights around him it is no wonder “Phil” sees his shadow and runs back inside. 

The Pharisees and Sadducees came to Jesus seeking a sign from Heaven.  They were testing Jesus to see if He was who He said He was.  What other signs could He give them?  He had already caused the lame to walk and the blind to see.  Leaders had seen those that were healed with their own eyes!  Still that wasn’t enough proof for them.    

The world today has the same mindset.  “Show us a sign and we will believe”.  Yet signs of the times abound all around us (Matthew 24) and the world still doesn’t believe. 

What will it take for a sinful world to repent?  Is there hope for those who will be left behind after the rapture of the Church?  What other signs have taken place that man has missed?
