"Learn this parable from the fig tree: As soon as its branch becomes tender and sprouts leaves, you know that summer is near. In the same way, when you see these things happening, know that He is near-at the door! I assure you: This generation will certainly not pass away until all these things take place.”
After a very long winter and a colder than normal spring the signs of summer are very important.
There is a message board in front of a small eating establishment in our town that declares "Spring has lost it's way!"
No matter how cold it is today I can confidently say that warmer weather will arrive, the grass will grow again and summer will be here. And I can know for sure that it will not be long before the flowers fill the field. I see the signs!
The coming of Jesus Christ and the culmination of all things on this earth is as certain as the coming of summer. He will come and those who love Him will go to be with Him forever!
Will He come today? No one knows, but this is certain: Jesus will come and every knee will bow and acknowledge Him as Lord!
Today you don't have to look very hard to see lots of leaves on the fig tree! Get ready for summer!
