DAILY?READINGS: Nehemiah 1-2; Daniel 11:21-45; Revelation 7

…O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?  Matthew 16:3

The Pharisees and Sadducees were better at homespun meteorology than interpreting Christ’s signs. Though He gave ample evidence to back up His claims, they clung to their erroneous and preconceived notions of Him. Academic intellect, scientific understanding, business acumen, and other forms of human wisdom are not adequate means of evaluating the Lord. Only divine revelation from His Word provides a sure guide for learning the truth. —K. R. Keyser

While created things are wasting, still our God abides the same;
All His words are everlasting, all His works His love proclaim.
—G. W. Frazer
