Do you know what time it is?
And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation. (Mark 8:12 KJV)
Jesus was clearly sighing in utter frustration in this verse of scripture. People have not changed much over the centuries since this day recorded in the Bible. They are still looking for signs and wonders today through clouds, weather, natural events, purported burial cloths, and the like. Today we hear many speaking of the rare blood moons mentioned in the book of the prophet Joel.
God’s Word says without apology more than once that there will be no particular sign given before Jesus arrives in the clouds to take His spiritual family home in to the eternal realm. There have been signs and prophecy fulfilled throughout the ages denoting the end times in which we live, in fact there is no other prophecy to be fulfilled before Jesus returns.
The Bible tells us there are two important truths to keep in mind: first, God will return when we least expect it, and secondly that we should always be ready. Living ready for Jesus’s return is existing spiritually prepared. Seeking God in earnest prayer, living according to His will, and anticipating His return at any time rather than seeking to find clues on this earth hinting at the exact moment of His return which is fruitless and will never result in any tangible clues because Christ will appear with the element of surprise and only those who were prepared will be called to meet Him in the clouds that marvelous future day!
