Signs of the time

"The Prophecy is a sign, not to the unbelieving, but to those who believe." 1 Corinthians 14:22
"The end of all things is approached; so be sober and be sure to pray." 1 Pierre 4:7

        The responsible of the Jewish people sought to "test" the Lord Jesus in asking him a sign from heaven. He answered them: "When the evening comes, you say: It will be a great time, because the sky is red… You know how to discern the appearance of the sky; and the signs of the time, you cannot?" (Matthew 16:2, 3). They refused the obvious evidence of the divinity of Jesus, who had already been cured of persons with disabilities, had multiplied the loaves to feed a crowd, risen a young girl. Had they need other signs to certify that he was the Christ announced by the prophets? Their request highlighted their refusal to believe in him.

       Still today the Word of God gives signs to believers to discern the characteristics of the time where they live: "In the last days it will occur in difficult times: the men will be selfish, stingy,… blasphemers, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful…, cruel, not liking the well…" (2 Tim 3:1-3).

       What do we see around us? Is it not clear that we arrived at these times of the end? That then waits the Christian? The coming of the Lord to remove its church of the middle of this world which goes toward the judgment (John 12:31). Discern the time, this is not to seek to know the date of the return of the Lord, knowledge reserved to God the Father (Matthew 24:36), is to understand the distinctive signs of our time, announced by the Word of God to wake us up to wait for Christ.
