And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations. Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. (Luke 21:25-26 KJV)
Jesus spoke these words to his disciples when he was telling them about the end of the world. He told them to look for the signs.
There were signs and wonders in the sky as we drove out last evening. We looked up. In the space of an hour, we saw dark, rain laden clouds, a double rainbow, a full moon and the sun. We saw dark, grey and purple clouds to our left, then a small rainbow on the horizon, a bright mushroom like cloud, a full moon in front of us and the sun behind us, all in the sky at once.
I was encouraged when a minister was speaking yesterday. He quoted from the scripture which says,
While he was still speaking, a bright cloud covered them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!” (Matthew 17:5 NIV)
God spoke out of the cloud, his love and approval of his son Jesus. He tells us to listen to Jesus.
Today God in heaven, the creator of the clouds, sun and moon is saying “Listen to my son, Jesus.” Read what is recorded about Jesus when he was on the earth in the scriptures. He is the truth, the way and the life. Those who are thirsty, come to Jesus, the fountain of life. He promises to give you water that you will never thirst again, and eternal life. I Praise God that I am alive to see his wonders in the sky last evening.
One thought on “This Is My Son. Listen to Him.”
