Rev. Robert L. Wise, PhD explores the world of divine interventions from an objective point of view. An Archbishop in the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches with a Ph.D. and the author of 36 books, Rev. Wise relates his interviews with persons who experienced the touch of God.


Some miracles cannot be measured by a single event, but must be understood in the context of history. Such is true of Israel.  No nation that was wiped out has ever returned except one; Israel. Fulfilling the prophecy of scripture written over 2,000 years earlier, the Jewish people returned to their promised land. Passages such as Jeremiah 31, Jeremiah 16, and Ezekiel 36 fore saw the Jewish people returning. International politician’s like General George Marshall warned the Jews not to establish a state because the surrounding 8 Arab states would wipe them out. On a Friday, David Ben-Gurion declared Israel a nation. On Monday, swarms of Arabs attacked and lost. How could a tiny, struggling people withstand such an onslaught? Only by a miracle.

Israel has always been a land of miracles. For 2,000 years Jewish families continued to live in the Galilee even after the fall of the Second Temple. In 1900, the Greenberg family returned around the turn of the century and had great success in farming in the Galilee, but in 1915 disaster hit. An overwhelming swarm of locust struck, devouring everything in sight, including all their crops and vegetables!

Farmers rushed into the fields swinging clubs. Children were released from school to help kill the destroyers, but nothing stopped the insects onslaught. The locusts were devouring the fruits and vegetables with the force of a rampaging wild fire.

The Jewish farmers prayed around the supper table and went to bed, hoping to have the energy to attack the locust in the morning. Again, they prayed and prayed and prayed.

In the morning, just as the sun ca me up, one of the farmers looked out the window. The fields were covered with white! He rushed out to see what this meant.

Thousands of white storks had flown in during the night! So many had landed on the locust that the land looked solid white. Out of nowhere, storks had saved the crops. For three days, the huge white birds ate the locust and then left, not to return.

For the next three years, the crops in the Galilee flourished as never before. To this day, the Jews call the event “The Miracle of the Storks.”

When God works miracles, sometimes you see His hand move, sometimes you don’t.  You may need to just keep on looking.

Do miracles still happen? Ask the Jews of Israel. Just remember miracles never cease!
