1 The Pharisees and Sadducees approached, and tested him, asking him to show them a sign from heaven. 2 He replied, “When evening comes you say, ‘It will be good weather because the sky is red.’ 3 And in the morning, ‘Today will be stormy because the sky is red and threatening.’ You know how to read the appearance of the sky, but you can’t read the signs of the times.
Jesus was very upset with the teachers of the law in His time because since they were in the Word, they should have known the Messiah’s coming through biblical signs.
If we do not study end times prophecy with the rest of Scripture, know that you are in disobedience.
36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.
The day and the hour are not meant for us to know, but the season of Christ return, we MUST know.
32 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors!
One of the Books in Scripture that is about the end times comes with a blessing.
3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.
The Greek word for keep is Tereo which means I keep, guard, observe, watch over-Strong’s# 5083.
How can one watch out for biblical prophecy coming to its fulfillment if they don’t study and know it?
The blessing will come to those who are ready and are looking for the signs of Jesus’ return.
But the world is in darkness, blind and without understanding because we as believers have the Holy Spirit who reveals to us the will God which is stamped in Scripture.
1 Thessalonians 5:3-5
3 For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. 4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. 5 You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.
When a Christian is in God’s Word, reading and studying the signs, his life will be busy doing the work of God by warning people of the coming wrath that will be poured out on those living in rebellion.
