Mark 8:11-13 Is The Lord A Sign In the Clouds
11 The Pharisees came out and began to argue with Him, seeking from Him a sign from heaven, to test Him.11 The Pharisees came out and began to argue with Him, seeking from Him a sign from heaven, to test Him. 12 Sighing deeply in His spirit, He said, “Why does this generation seek for a sign? Truly I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation.” 13 Leaving them, He again embarked and went away to the other side.
On September 22, 1989 Hurricane Hugo made landfall at the coast of Charleston, SC as a category 4 storm headed up both South & North Carolina, doing damage all up both states, even to, where my family lived , which is 209 miles. The schools of the area were out for a couple weeks,cause there was no electricity & trees all over were blown down like toothpicks. Many electric companies from other states sent repair trucks to help restore electricity, When school started, I remember someone showing a photo of what was supposed to be an image of Jesus in the clouds of that terrible hurricane & many people believe it was a sign of Jesus. The Pharisees ask Jesus for a sign that He was the promised Messiah, they couldn’t accept the rumors of the miracles & how Jesus preached The Who of God with authority. The signs Jesus was doing then, are the same signs He is doing today. Jesus changes the lives of those who accept Him as the Messiah and people are still taking photos of clouds shaped in what they think Jesus looks like. I see signs of Jesus when I heard a man preach a sermon & he said serve time in prison cause he sold & abused crack cocaine & now he gives high on sharing how Jesus saved him. And there are even former adult porn stars who turn to Christ, and teach how Jesus transformed them, a person who was a slave of sexual sin & now say Jesus can forgive the most horrible sinner & make them a true sign that Jesus is Messiah. Dear friends the clouds are beautiful, but with the blow of wind, they can look like Mickey Mouse , the signs of Jesus exist in the lives of man & woman who reflect the glory of Jesus’ amazing love & transformation. God bless you all. The Lord Jesus Loves you & so do I. Sam H.
