A Sign Among Them

Isaiah 66:18-19
“For I know their works and their thoughts, and the time is coming to gather all nations and tongues. And they shall come and shall see my glory, and I will set a sign among them…”
A Sign Among Them
God knows everything, sees everything. This is the nature of God. This strikes fear into the hearts of many. If God knows everything, then He knows my innermost, darkest thoughts and desires. He knows all my sins. Yes. Yes, He does. And to the unrepentant heart, this understandably brings dread. Yet to the person of faith, there is great comfort in this. Because even though God knows all my sins and the corruption within, He still forgives me. And how do we know this to be true? He has told us, He has “set a sign among” us. On an evening in Bethlehem two millennia ago, that Sign became flesh and dwelt among us. God became incarnate in the person of Jesus Christ. Born of the virgin Mary, begotten of the Father. It would be this sign which would bring an unbelieving world from its sin and darkness into His glorious light.
There would also be another sign. Jesus would tell the Scribes and the Pharisees, “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.” It would be on the cross where this sign would be given. The death and resurrection of Jesus defeated sin, death, and the devil. And it is in the sign where we are victorious through Him.
