**READING THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES?
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
Matthew 24:40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
WHAT WAS THE SIN OF THE FOOLISH VIRGINS? They were virgins, clean and undefiled… Their sin was they were not ready, their oil was low and then empty
Matthew 25:12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Luke 17:34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
35 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 36 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
There was a grubby street person sitting by the main road. The man had a SIGN that he held up. A new Corvette came
speeding down the road. The dirty looking man jumped up and started waving his sign. THE END IS NEAR. The guy in the Vette laugh and went a little faster. The next thing the driver knew, he saw the flood waters had washed the bridge away. At 90 mph the Vette crashed over the river bank and landed in the swollen river. The car was totally destroyed. The man crawled out of his car and swam to safety. His laughter had turned to tears as he saw his beautiful car in pieces.
Once the man rested on the shore he climbed up the bank and there the dirty street person was laughing and said that was fun to watch your car fly into the river. The street man laughed and laughed.
The man in his fancy suit was crying and he said: WELL, YOU WARNED ME THE END WAS NEAR and I just did not UNDERSTAND your sign?
Matthew 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Luke 12:39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.
WHAT DOES A SIGN MEAN? Sign: a gesture or words written or spoken that give information, action that reveals something exists is true or will happen, what does SIGNS OF THE TIME mean? 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 blast off?
Could we be in the FINAL COUNTDOWN of time? Could we be approaching catastrophic events that are warning us that the stage of time has shifted gears into OVERDRIVE?
Remember the cry in 1988 of the 88 reasons Jesus was come back in 1988? How many fell for that one? Then the same man rewrote the lesson plus one and said: 89 REASONS Jesus was coming in 1989. I think he quit and did not do a 90? I HEAR SOME TV PREACHERS that seem to love to sell FISH BAIT and lure people to HOAR and prepare with materialism? Remember Y2K? The panic and hoarding in a physical global shakeup where there would be no electricity, no TV or Radio?
GOD HAS OFTEN TRIED TO WARN PEOPLE OF COMING OF GOD’S PLAN, TIME RECORDS THAT ONLY ONCE DID A NATION TAKE CORRECTIVE ACTION SO GOD COULD SPARE THEM. Massive destruction and death will reign this planet? Seems even the church IS MAKING LIGHT OF GOD’S JUDGMENT. Many men and women has seen ahead to the coming judgment and they mock God and God’s preachers.
DO WE KNOW THE SEVEN SIGNAL SIGNS OF CANCER?
I TAUGHT SCHOOL IN LEE COUNTY VIRGINIA. Near the end of the school year, we were studying the SEVEN SIGNAL SIGNS OF CANCER in Health. I had my aid run of copies of the page and I always asked the students to remember this signs and to take the copy home and hang it on the back side of a cabinet door where they could refresh their minds from time to time. I asked my aid to run enough copies for each of my students. Somehow the machine ran double the copies.
While standing in the hall, I said something to the 4th grade teacher about the extra copies and she said why waste these? I will give these my students. As we stood there talking, she read the 7 SIGNAL SIGNS OF CANCER. She told me, I HAVE ALL SEVEN OF THESE SIGNS. She made a doctor’s appointment. The news was terrible. There were 2 weeks of school left, she never returned to finish the year. During the summer my precious friend passed away. As school started the next year, I walked down the hall and saw her name tag on the door. I cried as I took a screw driver and removed her name tag from the door. My heart was broken as considered how cruel cancer can be. IF ONLY SHE HAD KNOWN THE SIGNALS OF CANCER MAYBE SHE WOULD HAVE LIVED MUCH LONGER. What you don’t know can kill you!
