In the northeastern United States, nature seems to spin on a dime around Labor Day. Leaves start getting caught in pool skimmer baskets. The scent of change sneaks in the bedroom window around 3 in the morning. The breezes seem more significant. Labor Day week may not be a stop sign, but it sure feels like a yield sign. There are also seasons in human history. To put it in perspective, many term “history” as “His-Story.” There’s a definite yield sign on the earth and it causes us to be aware of the return of Christ.
PORTAL TO HEAVEN: By yielding to Jesus, we can be as peaceably prepared as He wants us to be. To ignore the change of this season in human history is like deliberately going out on a crisp autumn day without a coat because one wants it to be summer.
[The sons of Issachar who were ) men who understood the times and knew what Israel should do…Now learn the parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near; so, you too, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door.
