Bible Texts:

Times and seasons may change, but people never do.

The People Demand A Sign:

Matthew 16:1,3,4 KJV [The Demand for a Sign]
1 The Pharisees and Sadducee's came to Jesus and tested him by asking him to show them a sign from heaven.
3 and in the morning, ‘Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.
4 A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah.” Jesus then left them and went away.

Matthew 24:1-3,24 KJV
1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and His disciples came to Him for to shew Him the buildings of the temple.
2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
3 And as He sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
24 ...false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

Luke 23:8 KJV

John 12:37 KJV [Unbelief Among the Jews]
Even after Jesus had performed so many signs in their presence, they still would not believe in Him.

Are we to seek after signs, apparitions, spirits, or entities of any kind, be they spirit or of flesh?

Matthew 12:38,39 KJV [ The Sign of Jonah ]
38 Then some of the Pharisees and teachers of the law said to Him, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from you.”
39 He answered, “A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.

Luke 11:30 KJV
For as Jonah was a sign to the Ninevites, so also will The Son Of Man be to this generation.
Here is why, we should “not,” seek after anything but God's Word and The Lord Jesus:

Matthew 24:24-26 KJV
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

II Corinthians 11:13-15 KJV
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

False Prophets:

Matthew 7:15 KJV
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Matthew 24:11 KJV
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

Mark 13:22 KJV
For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.

False Teachers:

Matthew 15:9 KJV
But in vain they do worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

I Timothy 4:1,2 KJV
1 Now The Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

I Timothy 6:3-5 NLT
3 Some people may contradict our teaching, but these are the wholesome teachings of
The Lord Jesus Christ. These teachings promote a Godly life.
4 Anyone who teaches something different is arrogant and lacks understanding. Such a person has an unhealthy desire to quibble over the meaning of words. This stirs up arguments ending in jealousy, division, slander, and evil suspicions.
5 These people always cause trouble. Their minds are corrupt, and they have turned their backs on The Truth. To them, a show of godliness is just a way to become wealthy.

II Timothy 4:3,4 KJV
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from The Truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

II Peter 2:1-3 KJV
1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying The Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of Truth shall be evil spoken of.
3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.


Romans 16:17,18 NLT
17 And now I make one more appeal, my dear brothers and sisters. Watch out for people who cause divisions and upset people’s faith by teaching things contrary to what you have been taught. Stay away from them.
18 Such people are not serving Christ our Lord; they are serving their own personal interests. By smooth talk and glowing words they deceive innocent people.

II Corinthians 11:13 NLT
These people are false apostles. They are deceitful workers who disguise themselves as apostles of Christ.

Ephesians 4:14 KJV
That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

II Timothy 3:13 KJV
But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

II John 1:7 KJV
For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an Antichrist.

Seeking apparitions, spirits, entities, terrestrial or extraterrestrial, what does The Word say?

Romans 8:34 NLT
Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and He is sitting in the place of honor at God’s Right Hand, pleading for us.

I Timothy 2:5 KJV
For there is one God, and one Mediator between God and men, The Man Christ Jesus;

How many? Only “one,”and that individual is “The Man Christ Jesus.”

24 But this Man, because He continueth ever, hath an unchangeable Priesthood.
25 Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them.
26 For such an High Priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;

Hebrews 9:24 KJV
For Christ did not enter into a holy place made with human hands, which was only a copy of the true one in heaven. He entered into heaven itself to appear now before God on our behalf.

Hebrews 12:24 NLT
You have come to Jesus, the one who Mediates the new covenant between God and people, and to the sprinkled Blood, which speaks of forgiveness..."

I John 2:1 NLT
My dear children, I am writing this to you so that you will not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an Advocate who pleads our case before The Father. He is Jesus Christ, the one who is truly righteous

(Those who reject The Savior, and seek after signs and wonders, are ripe for deception! Read Revelation 13. The coming Anti-Christ and his false religious leader, the false prophet.)

What is important, is not sign seeking, but do we know The Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior!

Isaiah 45:22 KJV
Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

John 3:16,17,36 KJV
16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.
36 He that believeth on The Son hath everlasting Life: and he that believeth not The Son shall not see Life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
