Do ever wish that God would just give you a sign that Jesus really is the Savior of the world? Perhaps God could text you a special message or speak to you from a burning bush or break in on a broadcast from WTOK like the president does sometimes or write it in big letters across the sky. Would you then believe in him and on him?
Some of the scribes and Pharisees in Jesus’ day thought the same way. They came up to Jesus in Matthew 12 and said, “Teacher, we wish to see a sign from you.”
And here was Jesus’ response to them and to us. He said, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”
You probably know the story of Jonah and the whale. Jesus uses that story to point to his Jonah experience as a sign to the whole world that He is the savior. As Jonah was in the fish’s belly for three days, Jesus was in the belly of the earth, he was in the grave for three days. And on that 3rd day, just as Jonah was spit out of the fish alive, Jesus walked out of that tomb alive.
You want a sign from God to prove who Jesus is? You’ve been given one. It’s the sign of Jonah, which is also called the Resurrectino of Jesus Christ. Believe that sign, and believe on Christ.
Change begins in you!
