kjv@Matthew:16:1 @ The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.

kjv@Matthew:16:2 @ He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.

kjv@Matthew:16:3 @ And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

Today's notes:Discerning the Face of the Sky


What is man believing/doing?:

What is making man to believe/do as he is doing?:



This demand comes after three intense days of healing thousands, capped off by a miraculous fresh fish fest in the middle of the wilderness.

Key Messages:

    What does this say about our present condition?
  1. A great many to this day eliminate heaven/hell and judgment from their considerations. They may allow themselves a fundamental acceptance in written law and morality, a savior though of the scope of Jesus is highly unneeded. Yet the climate that day above their spiritual forefathers the Sadducee was just as Jesus had described it (just as they themselves knew it to be) and events did transpire by willing hands just as He had predicted and He was raised just as the prophet (they didn't believe in) foretold; like in Nineveh many because of this sign have repented. Whether one chooses to believe it now our not, what Jesus said was going to happen did happen and that should be taken as fulfilling the one overwhelming sign He said that He was going to give them. They have unwillingly become participants in the fulfillment of this sign at their own expense.
