And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is. And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass. Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time? Luke 12:54-56
We have millions of weather men and women , who predict our future weather on a daily basis, they even predict what kind of season we will be having. However we have billions of professed “Christians” who can’t tell we are in the end times. How is this possible? There are a few possibilities, first most Christians don’t read the Bible or have no knowledge of anything that is in it. Secondly, there are alot of false teachers and “prophets” out there that want to deceive the masses. They will claim peace, when there is no peace! (Ezekiel 13:10)
As Jesus Christ said himself “You hypocrites, you know how to interpret the weather, however you can’t interpret our present time” This is a paraphrase of course, however this is the point Christ is trying to make. To predict the weather, expert meteorologists use many different models, they use historical patterns, they look at trending patterns. This is exactly the same thing Christians should be doing with the time and seasons of Christ.
If you know the prophecies of the Bible, if you know the signs that Jesus taught us to look for (Matthew 24), if you study the historical models of worldly empires, if you look at trending patterns of our society and culture. When you put all these together, you can come to a valid conclusion, we are living in the last days before Christ return
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. Matthew 16:1-4
Jesus talks about this in the gospel of Matthew, the religious leaders are demanding a sign, and Jesus says the same thing to them “You hypocrites, you can discern the sky , but you can’t discern the sign of the times” Jesus is saying again, you can predict the weather but you can’t predict the seasons your living in.
They continually demanded a sign from Christ, he said he gave them the “Sign of Jonah”, now for those who know the Bible, they understand what Jesus is talking about. However the religious experts, Pharisees and Sadducees, has no idea what Jesus is talking about. They couldn’t discern the seasons because they truly didn’t know God
Wake up Church, discern the sign of the times! We are living in the last days! Read your Bible, get right with God, keep your lamps full because Christ is coming like a thief in the night Amen!
