Max Davis was a skeptical journalist living in Louisiana.
Josiah Cullen was a 9-year-old nonverbal autistic boy living in Minnesota.
And when God put them together in a supernatural way, both their lives changed.
"God knew I would get the story out," Davis tells Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of the Greenelines podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network. And his new book, Jesus, Josiah and Me, shares that story—the story of the prophetic visions and messages Cullen received about Davis, all of which took place without the two having met in person.
Their initial connection came through an author friend who knew Josiah's mother, Tahni. The first day the friend told Tahni about Davis, her son had a prophetic word for him, typing it into his tablet as his mother asked, "Does this have anything to do with Max?" without mentioning he was an author or anything else about him.
"Lots to do with Max, yes," he typed, adding some other specific words about Davis' writing and how God intended to use him in the kingdom.
When Davis' friend told him about this message, he responded with his typical skepticism, he says. But after pressing her more, he was convinced: Josiah was real. And God was at work in powerful ways.
"Over the next 3 1/2 years, I got over 20 pages of messages, sovereign messages from this boy with information that nobody could know, not even his mother," Davis says. And all of them, he adds, were intended to share the story that is "ultimately about Jesus and Him being fully present in our lives and leading people to the gospel."
