The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired Him that He would shew them a sign from heaven. He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times? A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And He left them, and departed. (Mat 16:1-4)
We must not only see the signs and the times around us, but also compare them to Scripture. Precept upon Precept, and line upon line, looking unto Jesus the Author and finisher of our faith. All that came before His incarnation, was given as a sign, an example, a type or direct prophecy, for all Scripture speaks of Him. All that has come since, either points back to the Cross, equips and exhorts the Body of Christ, His Church, or points to His second coming, when He returns, not as a humble servant, but as He is, King of kings, and Lord of lords.
Until the day He comes to take us Home to Himself, we are commanded to minister to those around us as His ambassadors. We are committed and counselled to disciple one another in His Word, that we may grow thereby. And we are commissioned to proclaim the Gospel of repentance and faith in Him to this lost and dying world. As we go, we are to preach the Good News of Jesus Christ and Him crucified, buried, and raised again, so that all may hear and those that believe may receive Him by faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary and have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD with forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
