The first day of Autumn was sometime last week. We are definitely not experiencing those
nice brisk mornings followed by a comfortable day. No it is hot and humid here in Connecticut. Although, the leaves are changing rapidly… they say that’s because we are in a drought. I love fall weather and I can’t wait until it finally arrives for the season.
That’s not the kind of season I’m referring to right now though. The change that I’m talking about is a change in the spiritual realm. God is moving… Everywhere I go, everyone I talk to get a sense that something is going on but many don’t seem to get a sense of the significance of what may be occurring.
Let’s take, for example, this year… 2020. Did you ever expect this year to unfold the way it has when you woke up on New Years Day. Just a quick list of some of the things we have experienced: a pandemic, storms… hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards, etc., wildfires, earthquakes, riots, an out of control election processes where no matter who wins the other side is going to challenge it… and we still have three more months.
Yes, things are changing. I believe that our heavenly Father is preparing us for the return of Jesus. Does that mean I believe Jesus is coming tomorrow? No, but He could! We are not supposed to know the exact time… there’s a reason for that. But we are supposed to recognize the season:
Matthew 24:26-36 (NIV): 26 “So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. 27 For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 28 Wherever there is a carcass, there the vultures will gather. 29 “Immediately after the distress of those days “‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’a]”>[a] 30 “Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earthb]”>[b] will
mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.c]”>[c] 31 And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. 32 “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. 33 Even so, when you see all these things, you know that itd]”>[d] is near, right at the door. 34 Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. 36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son,e]”>[e] but only the Father.”
Yes, the season is changing! Are you preparing?
Do you recognize it?
