How do you view the miraculous? I’ll say that I tend to be skeptical, although supernatural things have happened to and through me. But they certainly don’t occur every day. Such events have been the exception rather than the rule in my forty years of walking with Jesus.

So, I’ll tell you what happened in our little fellowship this last Sunday, and you can do with it as you will.

We had prayed, praised and studied Scripture together. As we were talking about wrapping up the meeting, I asked, “Does anyone have anything else to share before we finish?”

One of the young girls—about ten years old—said that the Lord had spoken to her about some things. When we asked what they were, she said that Jesus had told her about a couple of relatively insignificant things that He had said were going to happen before they happened.

“Is that all?” we asked.

She got a little teary eyed and grew quiet.

“What is it?” we asked.

It took her some time, but she finally said, “He said that World War Three is coming.”

Then we became very thoughtful and quiet, as well. After a while, I asked her, “How do you think we should respond to this?”

She said, “With mercy?”

I agreed with her, since, if that were indeed going to happen, it would be very trying times for all of us. And then we all agreed that it would be a good idea to continue to pray for the salvation of others. We also asked the Lord to tell us if there was anything we should do to prepare for what was going to happen.

There it is. Now you can decide how to respond.
