What are today’s miracles? Who are today’s prophets?
Today, when someone says “profit” you think of the margin between cost and retail. In biblical times, when someone said “prophet,” you thought of an old man with a long beard dressed in white robes – a seer who could convey in a dreamlike trance the holy, unadulterated Word of God.
Today, if someone claims to be a prophet, he or she does so for one of two reasons: 1) either because he is trying to make a profit (preying on the insecurities of people, which often works miraculously); or 2) because he has serious mental problems.
Strolling right along with prophecy is its bedmate – the miracle. The miracle is the prophet’s way of proving, by way of a wondrous sign, that he is indeed a messenger of God.
So what are today’s miracles – who are today’s prophets?
Today’s miracles are the Jewish people. Today’s prophets are you and me.
And we get to make that claim as long as we follow the Lord, our God, revere Him, keep His commandments, heed His voice, worship Him, and cleave to Him.
