“… and immediately the boat was at the land to which they went” (John 6:21)
“…. the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more…… but Philip was found at Azotus; and, passing through , he preached in all the cities….” (Acts 8:39-40)
Do you understand the text ? … this is not some mirage…. this is not some ghost…. this is physical flesh and blood (and even a whole boat) disappearing in one place and immediately appearing somewhere else !
Oh the WISDOM of GOD…. He worked His mighty miracles in an age of simple people…. if such had happened today the scientists would want to study the “phenomena”…. and the atheists would want to “explain it away”….. we are ever so “sophisticated” today and we think we are so much smarter than the “old time” people in the Bible because we have computers, internet, cellphones, etc…. and doctors in hospitals full of expensive technology and an array of DRUGS….. in WHAT do we put our FAITH ?… do we have FAITH in GOD to do the IMPOSSIBLE ? (Genesis 18:14) (Jeremiah 32:27)
Sadly, many only talk about “trusting God” AFTER they have had the “death sentence” and the doctor shakes his head and tells them they may have “a month or two at the most”.
The POWER OF THE ALMIGHTY which we see in the BIBLE… stands in sharp contrast….. against the “wonders of TECHNOLOGY” in our daily existence.
The Bible actually predicted this time…. the angel told Daniel about OUR DAY… “…many shall run to and fro, and KNOWLEDGE shall be increased” (Daniel 12:4)
Quick and easy TRAVEL between all countries of the world only became a reality less than a hundred years ago (a mere drop in the ocean of time)….. and both TRAVEL and KNOWLEDGE have increased exponentially since then …. in TECHNOLOGY of today, more ADVANCEMENT is made in a single year than in THOUSANDS OF YEARS in the past….. the world is literally RUSHING to it’s DOOM…. because any human should be able to see that the planet itself cannot survive what mankind is doing to it….. just watch DOOMSDAY PREPPERS on TV and you will realize that even the unrighteous heathen KNOW that the FUTURE is NOT ROSY.
The Bible tells us that when the CLIMAX comes… the global WAR (which started out between the nations of the earth over Israel, and more specifically, Jerusalem…. Zechariah 12:2-3) will actually be directed against GOD (Zechariah 12:9).
The warring nations of the world will UNITE against a “common” enemy (Joel 3:2) (Joel 3:9-15), the intrusion of GOD Himself into the battle (Revelation 19:19)….. can you believe that ? …. GOD HIMSELF actually returns to the planet in GLORY (Zephaniah 3:8) (Micah 5:15)….. and the nations fighting among themselves UNITE against Him, the OUTSIDE INTRUDER (Revelation 19:19).
Well the outcome is CERTAIN….. mankind cannot “win” a war against GOD (Zechariah 12:4) (Zechariah 14:12-13) (Revelation 19:21) (Ezekiel 38:21-23)….. so there is total CARNAGE (Ezekiel 39:17-20) (Revelation 19:17-18) …. MILLIONS dead (Revelation 14:20)….. GOD takes His rightful place as RULER of His earth….. and the remaining survivors spend months “burying the dead, cleaning up the debris and restoring the earth” (Ezekiel 39:12).
If you are a “born again” CHRISTIAN then you KNOW that GOD is still working miracles today.
If you are NOT “born again”….. you better seek GOD’s gift of SALVATION and do not stop seeking (Jeremiah 29:13) until you KNOW within yourself that a MIRACLE has INDEED taken place and you are definitely NOT the same person that you were before.
