“For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: but we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; but unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God,” 1 Corinthians 1:22-24.
“Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them,” Matthew 7:16-20.
“Be of good cheer,” says The LORD, “for even though the world is racing towards judgment I AM with those who have put their faith and trust in Me.
For nothing is hidden that will not be seen. The turmoil that you see all around you is a sign of what is to come. For the powers that be are at work behind the scenes.
For you will go through much tribulation in the days ahead, and many will fall to fear because of this, but know that I will carry you through these things.
For what has been spoken in the past through My Holy Prophets concerning these days, will surely come to past.
Woe to those who say that all is well around them. Woe to those who choose to ignore My Word.
But if you have faith even as a grain of mustard seed, then your faith will carry you through these things.
You are not here to build your own kingdoms, for The Glory belongs to Me.
Are your eyes opened to what is happening around you?
But study to show yourselves approved, a workman who has studied My Word.
For there are many who claim to be prophets, and yet they were not sent by Me. I have said that you would know them by their fruits.
Are the grapes dried and withered up, or are they lush upon the vine?
What are the signs of what you should be seeing around you?
What are the signs of my soon coming?
I have said that Jews look for a sign and Greeks seek wisdom. It is better not to look for the signs but to look to Me.
Keep your head about you these days and seek wisdom. For truly wisdom is her own reward.“
