After a long summer of 100-degree days, you suddenly open the door to those crisp 70 degree mornings and the sight of dew on the ground ... something is changing.
You're driving down the road in the evening, and suddenly the thought hits you: "I'm gonna roll down the windows and enjoy the cool of the evening. There's a world out there to be experienced! ... something is changing.
You look at the leaves on the trees, turning magnificent colors - red, yellow, brown (okay, I realize it's more a magnificent red, stunning yellow and dullish dying brown). But the landscape is giving you the signs ... something is changing.
You walk into the stores, and suddenly apples and raspberries are an affordable treat - you begin to think of soups, stews and pies. Your tastebuds are hankering for new things to taste, see and smell ... something is changing.
What does it take to notice the change of the seasons? You must be looking for the signs of the times. Otherwise, the change will simply go right past you - unnoticed - and you will go on with life as if nothing ever happened.
In God's Living Room, there has been an increase in interesting phenomena. We have seen people receive healing ... one lady with heart problems suddenly had them lift and go away with prayer - and after a week, she is still healed! Another man had a "crease" in his cornea that suddenly was healed and he can see clearly - so he took his wife out to see the Grand Canyon! Others are saying they are growing closer to the Lord - feeling more and moe of His presence in their daily lives - hearing His voice come alive for them through the Word of God and through prayer. There is more joy - more peace - more love from God - and more opportunities to share His goodness and life with others than was ever realized before...
It's clear: Something is changing.
God's Word is making life more fulfilling.
The love of Jesus is become more and more real to us - compelling us to love and pray and minister to others, so they can know His joy too.
The Kingdom of God is coming alive in our lives.
People are looking for the signs of the presence of God coming alive in our hearts and our daily lives...
It's a new season.
There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every[a]event under heaven--
A time to give birth and a time to die;
A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
A time to kill and a time to heal;
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to weep and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn and a time to dance.
A time to throw stones and a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing.
A time to search and a time to give up as lost;
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear apart and a time to sew together;
A time to be silent and a time to speak.
A time to love and a time to hate;
A time for war and a time for peace.
What profit is there to the worker from that in which he toils? I have seen the task which God has given the sons of men with which to occupy themselves. He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart...
