The Pharisees and Sadducees came to Jesus. In order to test him they asked him to show them a sign from heaven. 2 But he replied, “At evening you say, ‘It will be nice weather because the sky is bright red.’ 3 And in the morning you say, ‘There will be bad weather today because the sky is cloudy.’ You know how to make sense of the sky’s appearance. But you are unable to recognize the signs that point to what the time is. 4 An evil and unfaithful generation searches for a sign. But it won’t receive any sign except Jonah’s sign.” Then he left them and went away. (Matthew 16:1-4, CEB)
An evil and unfaithful generation searches for a sign. But it won’t receive any sign except Jonah’s sign. But did they get Jonah’s sign?
Would we have gotten Jonah’s sign?
Do you get it now?
Jonah was in the belly of the big fish for 3 days. Like he was dead, and then three days later brought back to life, like Jesus in the tomb.
Do we get the signs that the Bible tells us, or that God gives us?
Sometimes we want it to be super clear there is no room to get it wrong. But that isn’t how God works.
Watch what is happening and see the signs.
