Posted on 06/24/2020 2:38:44 PM PDT by Roman_War_Criminal
About two thousand years ago, Jesus rebuked the religious elites of His day. He criticized them for their failure to recognize His Coming. He told them, "You know how to look at the sky and predict the weather, but you don't know how to recognize the signs of the times" (Matthew 16:1-3).
Just like you and me, the religious leaders could see dark clouds on the horizon and know a rain storm was on its way. In the same manner, Jesus said they should have seen the signs and prepared for His arrival. The Pharisees and Sadducees knew the Old Testament Messianic prophecies, yet they failed to recognize the Messiah.
But their failure is relevant to our day and time as well. Why? Because Jesus wasn't simply addressing the Pharisees and Sadducees when He said this. He had a second audience in mind - you and me. That's right. Jesus was also talking to our generation.
The Bible is filled with prophecies about the Second Coming, and Jesus commanded us to watch for Him (Mark 13:35-37). Our generation is also expected to recognize the "signs of the times." But are we? Do you recognize the signs of the times?
Unfortunately, much of the world (including a large number of Christians) are not watching for Jesus. They're asleep when it comes to the Second Coming, even though Jesus warned against it. Why do I say the world is asleep? Because right now, a flood of signs surround us. Never before have so many signs of the Second Coming been present. Here are just a few from 2020:

An appropriate post with all of the convergence happening this year.
PM me if you wish to be added/removed from the list.
Who says you have to move with the times? It’s times like these I would rather have just pass me by, as I shake my head from side to side.
Look up! Watching and waiting!
Jesus said, "In those days before the flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat. People didn't realize what was going to happen until the flood came and swept them all away. That is the way it will be when the Son of Man comes" Matthew 24:38-39 (NLT).
At this particular point in time this is not happening. So we are close, but not quite there yet Nor are we ruled by a one world government, but that too is getting closer to being the reality. But again it signals that we are not quite there yet, but inching ever so closer. It may be soon, and it may also be 50 to 100 years away, though I think more like 10 to 25 years away.
Thanks for posting. I read this the other day. I thought it was very pertinent.
Well put and insane at the same time.
It may be 50 years away, I just can’t make a good case for it being that far off considering the technology and speed that it’s advancing. Not to mention the soulless youthful generation we currently have.
I could make a good case for it to happen within the next 10 years. Either way nobody knows. We’re inching closer and there’s not much anybody can do to stop it. I like the days of Noah allegory because it suggests that there was a whole lot more going on in those days besides just wanton evil on all sorts of levels. The Genesis 6 narrative reads like a complete DNA corruption of mankind and the animal kingdom.
Scientists have been playing with genomes and DNA for many decades now. Makes me wonder if that has anything to do with it also?
Perhaps. I tend to think it is because we cast God from the public square so as to not offend anyone. Of course they can offend believers with impunity. That was the beginning of the fall from grace. Interestingly, religions followed suit instead of fishing for souls.
I read Scripture with a mind toward the sign of Noah and his family being the only people left who were pure in their race. Everyone else had been corrupted, presumably by the DNA of Fallen Angels, or at least IMO and understanding. If the corruption of mankind had continued there would be no possibility of a David, or Christ.
A bump there, too
