Luke 12:56 “You fools. You know how to interpret the weather signs of the earth and sky, but you don’t know how to interpret the present times.”
Every day our lives are directed by the clock. Get up at this time. Time to eat breakfast or time for a hurried lunch. “Hurry up kids and get to bed, so you can get up when the alarm rings.” Everything is determined by the clock. Is this store open yet? You look at your watch (or phone) and see that it’s one minute past time for them to be open. You’re irate thinking, “they say on the door they should be open now. What’s the deal? I’m in a hurry. I have ten minutes or I’ll be late to clock in for work.”
And yet, few discern the time. Jesus said of His generation, “You know how to discern the appearance of the sky but cannot discern the signs of the times.” Matthew 16:3
Our generation has witnessed amazing world events: the budding of the fig tree, when Israel became a nation again in 1948; the United States embassy to Israel being moved to Jerusalem (by President Trump); and the alignment of nations–an end time prophesy. But today, the masses of our generation are unaware of these happenings. They can’t discern the times. What time is it? It’s late. Don’t let it be too late for you.
