“Red Sky at Night, Sailors Delight” - Author Ron Nelson

Updated: Dec 21, 2021

BIBLE REFERENCE:

“He (Jesus) answered and said to them, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’; 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 16:2-3;


WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

In the two verse above, Jesus is rebuking the Pharisees and the Sadducees because they were asking for a sign from heaven that He (Jesus) was indeed the Messiah that was prophesied from days of old. His response is really the same response that we can use today to rebuke the mainline denominations for not discerning the signs of the time in which we now live. The Pharisees and the Sadducees are symbolic of the church leaders of today. They have all kinds of laws to follow but yet they reject the teaching that Jesus Christ could come back at any time. They are not preparing their congregations for what is about to come to the whole world. Just as the Pharisees and the Sadducees were blind to the fact that Jesus had come, todays churches are just as blind to the fact that Jesus Christ could return at any moment for His church. What did Jesus say about this event that is on the near horizon? “But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you, yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.” 1 Thessalonians 5:1-2. When Jesus said it would be like a thief in the night, He was referring to those that are not watching, those that will not be ready. Those that are ignoring the signs that we were told to watch out for. If Jesus were to come back today, all those that are aware of the days in which we live, will not be caught off guard or surprised, we are ready. Those that are not paying attention to the heavenly signs that God is pouring out on the world will be caught off guard and miss the day of His return to remove His church from this godforsaken world. You are not being taught the truth in any of the mainline denominations about this event. They are either denying it like the Pharisees and the Sadducees did or they are explaining it away with false doctrine.


You need to listen to all those that read, study and understand the Bible and stop getting caught up with all the religious rules and regulations that are taught in most religious sects. Jesus Christ is against legalism. Remember, Christianity is a relationship with Jesus, not a religion. Think about this, Jesus Christ was the most anti-religious person to ever walk the earth. If Jesus would have followed any religion, it would have been Judaism, but yet He rebuked all those that followed the laws and teachings of Judaism They were bent of living under the law, Jesus was teaching a new covenant called grace. Jesus went as far as to say that the leaders of that day were of the devil as we read in John 8:44; You (the Pharisees and the Sadducees) are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. Those that He was speaking to were the most religious leaders of that day. I’m sure that Jesus is saying the same thing to many of the church leaders of today.


History is definitely repeating itself. I’ve heard a saying that went like this, “If we have learned anything from history, it is that history teaches us nothing.” We, as a generation are denying the soon return of Jesus Christ just as the rulers of His days denied His first coming. And because of that, there are those that will be unaware of His coming just like most of the scoffers did back in the days when Jesus Christ walked the shores of the Galilee.


Let me share one more biblical story that is evident in our world just as it was in the days of Noah. Noah preached for about one hundred twenty years about the judgement that was coming to the world in the form of a worldwide flood. Everyone mocked him (Noah) and laughed at him as if he were insane, just like the general public is doing to those that are warning of a worldwide judgement today. When Noah and His family were safety tucked away in the Ark, God, Himself shut the door. Once God shut the door that was it. All those left on the outside perished in the flood. It wasn’t as funny anymore as people screamed and cried for help, but there was no help to be found. They had their chance. The same thing is going to happen in, what I believe is in the very near future. Those that are laughing and mocking at those of us that are warning people of an upcoming judgement, will not be laughing long.


ACTION POINT:

My Friends, I have been warning people for quite some time now, but all that I am seeing is the fact that people that I thought were my friends have left me when all I am trying to do, is warn them from what is coming. One day, all these people will know just how much I care for them, but it will then be too late. Every time I send out an encouraging word, it is coming by way of the Holy Spirit, who puts these words on my heart to share with whoever will listen. A thought for those that knew me growing up, would you ever have thought that I would be a writer. I can answer that with an astounding, “No way”. So think about it, what could have happed to me to do something that was so far from my heart. There is only one answer, The Holy Spirit entered my heart and spoke to me saying, “You will be one of many to share the Good News” When I first got the call, I knew nothing about the truth of the Bible, but over time, The Holy Spirit revealed more and more to me, and now after about twenty five years, God is finally using me to serve His purpose. These words that I speak are truly spirit filled. You can believe what you will, but just stop and think about it instead of being so judgmental and critical. There are those that care more for you than you can imagine, and I am one of them. Written To the extreme glory of God, and Inspired by the Holy Spirit!” Amen!
