Old Sign – New Sign

For perhaps as long as 2 or 3 years our church has been without a sign and many thought we were closed down.
The old sign was wooden and held up for years; but wood warps and rots.
New signs can be metal, plastic, lit or unlit; either way they are expensive.
When you have a small church like ours you just can’t dip into the funds and buy a huge $5000 sign.
And it seems that sign companies say they’ll do business with you but really aren’t willing to do something for a small church. I found this out from experience.
Nevertheless, we have a sign now, we are open, and God’s word is preached and taught.
Do you know why God put the sun, moon, and stars in the heavens?
His word is clear about it; let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; Gen 1:14
The Hebrew for sign means a signal (literally or figuratively), as a flag, beacon, monument, omen, prodigy, evidence, etc.
In the KJV it is translated mark, miracle, (en-) sign, or token.
But the signs in the heavens are old and there are many that believe God is “closed down”!
When the Bible speaks of the sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD (Joel 2:31, Acts 2:20), could this be a sign?
Is the soon approaching tetrad a sign? (see Signs in the Heavens )
The disciples asked, “What will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” (Matt 24:3) and Jesus told them.
But many believe those signs are old and everything is closed down.
Jesus is returning and there will be signs to indicate this.
And at CrossRoads we have a new sign and we proclaim that Jesus is returning.
