SEPTEMBER 8-10, 2017
In Luke 12:56, Jesus warns about hypocrisy concerning the last days saying they knew how to discern the weather from the skies, but regarding His coming they were in the dark. We may joke about how inaccurate weather forecasters are today, but Bible prophecy is 100% accurate and the multitude of signs today should cause us to be on the edge of our seats, saying “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh!”
