MIRACLES NEVER CEASE!
You might also want to look at the widely read blog on the MIDDLE EAST from Robert L. Wise, Ph.D. which features weekly updates on little known facts about Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon and Syria, countries where Wise has traveled and worked. In an unbiased and politically neutral manner, he reports an objective view of what’s happening.
AN INTERVENTION IN NATURE?
You would find Jeff Brodsky fascinating. He doesn’t wear shoes and goes barefoot everywhere! That’s Jeff’s way of identifying with children he is trying to help. Jeff’s ministry is called Joy International and his mission is to rescue children who are being held in captivity as sexual slaves. He goes all over the world seeking out areas where human trafficking has snatched children and teens from their families, subjecting them to a life of absolute torture.
To date, Jeff Brodsky has assisted a multitude of young slaves find freedom.
I met him at Platte Canyon Community Church in Bailey, Colorado where he is a member. The Brodsky’s live in the Friendship Ranch in nearby Deer Creek Canyon. Recently, the Brodsky’s were on their way to a fund-raising event when a torrent of rain broke out. This summer the mountains have had an extortionary amount of rain storms and this day was the same. The rain came pouring down and would probably drown out their event. The sky had become dark purple with the sun disappearing behind the imposing clouds overhead.
As they rode along, the Brodsky’s reflected on the fact that their heavenly Father created the heavens and the earth. Certainly, God was the final word in what happened in the weather. Why couldn’t they pray for a break in the storm? Wasn’t it possible to ask Him to clear up the dreary situation?
There are stories in the Old Testament of prophets calling for a drought to punish wicked rulers and rain stopped for years. Elijah called for all dew and rain to halt. (I Kings 17:1) When the prophet Elijah prayed again after he had performed the work of the Lord, the rains came. (I Kings 18 41- 45) In the plagues that fell on Egypt, Moses seemed to have control over nature. (Exodus 5) Was that still possible?
The Brodsky’s called out for the Lord to open the sky. Immediately, the clouds parted and the sun came shining through. They were astonished! God had almost instantly responded to the prayer. The rain ended
Can such be? It obviously was!
Most people will find such stories unbelievable. They would never pray for such a thing…. And that’s probably why they don’t see it happen. They don’t take dominion as the book of Geneses suggests they should. Jeff Brodsky did. Divine intervention followed.
It’s worth thinking about.
