I am giving you a break today! This post is going to be a short one.
Some say that we cannot know the times, that it is not God’s will for us to know.
Actually, the only thing we cannot know is the day and hour of Christ’s return (We would have to get into the Hebrew Wedding Ceremony to understand why. I’ve posted about that before so we won’t go into it here). Everything else God wants us to know so we will be ready and so the lost may be saved, as a result of the signs and warnings.
God does not hide the signs of the times from us. Indeed, He shouts the signs to us. After all, He gave us the sun, moon, and stars for signs, Genesis 1:14.
Why doesn’t He just come right out and tell us what’s going on instead of giving us clues through signs, dreams, and visions?
For the same reason He has always used parables and strange dreams. If He came right out and said it, it would require no faith on our part.
Without faith it is impossible to please Him, Hebrews 11:6.
In fact, we are to walk by faith, not by sight, 2 Corinthians 5:7.
And please allow me to add that the Apostle Paul is not making a contrast here, he is making a comparison. Faith IS NOT blind, as some have coined the phrase, it is simply another way of seeing.
It is God’s way for us to see.
