Then the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and testing Him asked that He would show them a sign from heaven. 2 He answered and said to them, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’; 3 and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times. – Matthew 16:1-3
Jesus expected the spiritual leaders of His generation to know the prophecies and recognize that He was the Messiah. They should have realized that He was fulfilling those predictions. Most of those Pharisees and Sadducees never did recognize the truth about Him. It is the same way today. It’s time for Christians to recognize the signs of the times and do what they can to lead others to Christ while there is still an opportunity!
