To a certain extent, I think that our lives are controlled by signs. Certainly, while driving we need to be aware of and obey all of those triangular, rectangular, square, and octagonal signs along the roadway. We need to pay attention to those flashing signs, too. Pedestrians do well to obey those signs placed there for their protection.
There are other types of signs which we would do well to heed also. Minor aches and pains could be signs of bigger problems in the future. Dimming eyesight could be a sign of a cataract or other malady.
At the time when Jesus was on earth, the Pharisees asked him to perform a miraculous sign to prove he was the Messiah. Jesus knew their hearts and told them that the only sign he would give them was the sign of Jonah. Just as Jonah was in the great fish for three days and nights, Jesus would be in the belly of the earth for three days and nights. He continued to tell them that the people of Nineveh, the people to whom Jonah preached, would stand in judgment against this generation because they had repented when Jonah preached to them. Now someone greater than Jonah had come; but they would not believe. They could have seen the signs all around them but they refused to believe.
What about us? There are signs of the times all around us. They tell us that Jesus is coming back to destroy this world and to take those who belong to him home with him. Dare we not heed the signs and prepare ourselves for that Day? The only way to be prepared for that day is to have faith in your heart, believe that Jesus is your Savior and you will be saved.
