He also said to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, you say at once, ‘A shower is coming.’ And so it happens. And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, ‘There will be scorching heat,’ and it happens. You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky, but why do you not know how to interpret the present time?
These remarks of Jesus are intended for those who had questioned, doubted, and rejected Him and His teaching. These skeptics were very observant and intuitive when it came to the weather. They could read the skies and the conditions and accurately predict the coming weather. But when presented with abundant evidence of the divine nature of Jesus, they failed to see. They had witnessed the amazing miracles, had heard His authoritative teaching, had seen His compassion and mercy, and had been reminded of the many prophecies that He had fulfilled. But they had failed to interpret the signs and recognize Him as the promised Messiah. In much the same way, in our world today, despite the overwhelming evidence and proof of God, Jesus, and the Bible, there are so many who continue to deny and reject them as true. How sad it is that so many are missing out on knowing God and enjoying a relationship with Him through His Son.
What are some things that are helpful in providing evidence for Christ?
Don’t forget to pray and have a great day!
