Seeking Signs or Himself?
News services are using their valuable air time and print space reporting on Christians declaring the end of the world. Christians have said time and time again throughout my lifetime (more than six decades) that no generation has seen things worse than they are now, and it is now the end of the world and the coming of the Lord. They have looked up into the sky and in every corner of the globe seeking all manner of natural signs to confirm their suspicions (Gal.4:9-11). Yet, I find it interesting that not one time have I heard anyone say that no generation of Christians has ever been more like Jesus than this generation (even after all the years and all the centuries of church attendance and flocking to revival meetings and observing the stars and dispensational charts). Amos has a great suggestion: “SEEK HIM that maketh the seven stars and Orion… THE LORD IS HIS NAME:” (Amos 5:8, KJV; also v.4-“Seek Me, and live!”) Could it be that Amos would rather have us take valuable time and effort we are using to seek signs and actually use it to SEEK THE LORD Himself?
