signs and wonders
Here's how you can recognize true signs and wonders. (© Istockphoto/enjoynz)

In the last days, God says ... I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. ... And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. —Acts 2:17, 19-21

Signs and wonders in nature are not to be taken lightly, because they are not given for trivial reasons. Don't expect God to show a sign in the heavens concerning which car you are supposed to buy. Fire fell from heaven and consumed Elijah's sacrifice, the Red Sea parted, and a star led the wise men to Bethlehem. These were not insignificant events in the progress of God's plan and purpose. God's power displayed by signs and wonders in nature in the last days will be unprecedented because it will serve to confirm and signify one of the greatest events of all time—the last ingathering of souls and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. The purpose of the outpouring of the Spirit, the increase of the prophetic ministry, and the signs and wonders in nature is to awaken the church to passionate Christianity and to bring people to salvation.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Help me to understand Your work in these end days, dear God. Let me always remember that Your Spirit is being poured out upon man to awaken Your church and to bring people to salvation.

The magnitude of God's manifest power is usually proportional to the significance of His purpose.
