LISTEN TO MESSAGE

 

 

Intro – In the bible God almost always gave people signs to look for when some major event was to take place.

 

Many times as an act of His grace to give people a chance to repent.

 

 

 

I. Some Old Testament examples.

 

A. Noah – ark was in the works for 75-100 years before the flood came. Gen.5:32, Gen.7:6

 

B. Sodom & Gomorrah – Angels sent to warn people. Gen.19:1

 

C. Christ coming into this world.

 

1. Descendent of Judah and Jessie. Gen.49:10, Is.11:1

 

2. In the lineage of King David. Ps.132:11, 2Sam.7:12-13

 

3. Born in Bethlehem. Micah 5:2

 

4. Born of a virgin. Is.7:14

 

5. God in human form. Is.9:6, Mt.1:23

 

D. Christ’s death on the cross and resurrection. Is.53:5, Is.53:12,  Ps.16:10, Mt.12:40

 

 

 

II. The problem is people didn’t listen to His word.

 

A. So they drowned in the flood, burned in Sodom, and missed the birth of the Messiah.

 

B. They ended up rejecting the Savior. Matt.21:42

 

1. Those who read the Scriptures were ready. Luke 2:25, 34, 38

 

2. Others ignored the signs and were lost. Mt.23:37-38

 

 

 

III. Jesus has again given us signs of a great event that will happen.

 

A. His return for the believers. 1Thess.4:13-18

 

B. He has given many signs. Matt.24

 

C. Like Simeon and Anna some see the signs and wait for Christ. (28, 34-36)

 

D. Others ignore or just don’t believe and like the flood or Sodom they will perish. Matt.11:23-24

 

 

Con. – What about you? Are you listening to God’s word? So many missed His birth because they neglected to see the signs. Don’t be among those who miss the signs of His second coming. He is coming for those who are looking for Him. Heb.9:28
