An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign; and a sign will not be given it, except the sign of Jonah.” And He left them and went away. Matthew 16:4
What is the sign of Jonah? People are always challenging God to show them a sign, but Jesus explained, we can look at the sky and tell what the weather will be then why can’t we interpret the season we are in right now? Do people really not see the signs of the immoral collapse of society? Or do people just play dumb to challenge God as the Pharisees did with Jesus.
To understand the “Sign of Jonah” we must first look at what Jonah did. We all know Jonah spent 3 days and nights in the belly of sea monster (whale). The same is what Jesus predicted he would spend 3 days and nights in the heart of the Earth.
Jesus was predicting his crucifixion and resurrection. The crowd he was speaking to didn’t know about these events to come, but they did know the story of Jonah, which is why he referenced him.
Is our generation still looking for a sign? God sent a sign through his only begotten Son. He took the wages of sins and then defeated death and hell. The sign of our salvation has been sent , so are you still looking for a sign? Look no further then the truth, life , and way in Jesus Name Amen
