The miraculous signs that the Trinity perform
are fulfilled gradually little by little in the midst of everyday life.
A miraculous sign is the Trinity working with you.
【Scriptures】 Judges 6:36-40
Gideon said to God, 'If you will save Israel by my hand as you have promised-
look, I will place a wool fleece on the threshing floor.
If there is dew only on the fleece and all the ground is dry,
then I will know that you will save Israel by my hand, as you said.'
And that is what happened. Gideon rose early the next day;
he squeezed the fleece and wrung out the dew-a bowlful of water.
Then Gideon said to God, 'Do not be angry with me.
Let me make just one more request. Allow me one more test with the fleece.
This time make the fleece dry and the ground covered with dew.'
That night God did so. Only the fleece was dry; all the ground was covered with dew.
Hallelujah! I bless you to be filled abundantly with the love of the eternal God,
the peace of the Holy Son, and the fiery love, inspiration movement and working of the Holy Spirit.
While the Judge Gideon was fighting a battle to save Israel, he asked God in prayer:
“If you will save Israel through my hands, show me that You, Jehovah, are with me.
I am going to leave a ball of fleece on the threshing floor.
If only the fleece is drenched with dew and the rest of the ground is dry,
then I will know that You, Jehovah, are with me and will save Israel.”
When Gideon got up early next day, took the fleece,
and wrung the dew out of it, it filled a bowl with water.
Then Gideon prayed to God once more.
“Allow me to test once more with the fleece.
This time, let only the fleece be dry and the surrounding ground be covered with dew.”
This time too - it happened just as he asked.
What is the key point?
It was that God was with Gideon.
Gideon saved Israel because God was with him.
The fact that God was with him is ‘the miraculous sign.’
When you look at the miraculous signs that the Almighty Trinity perform, they are amazing.
The miraculous signs that the Trinity perform occur even in the midst of everyday life.
However, they don’t feel real to you even though you see them
- you only think about them as things that happen in the midst of everyday life.
In reality, God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son performing miraculous signs happen continually.
What is a miraculous sign?
Miraculous signs are not just shocking things happening right before our eyes
like suddenly being healed, the Red Sea parting.
Whether they are small things or big things,
everything that you were able to do by the Trinity working with you
even though they were things that neither you nor other people were capable of doing,
is miraculous signs.
God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son perform ‘miraculous signs’ in the midst of everyday life.
That is why even after seeing miraculous signs,
people think that they are simply things that have been done [normally] in the course of living.
When God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son perform miraculous signs,
They make them happen gradually little by little and [finally] become [fully] realized
just as a tree grows gradually, flowers bloom gradually, and fruit grows gradually.
That is why people think that those things worked out
as a result of them taking action on their own with the passage of time.
Also, when God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son perform miraculous signs,
They move people to take action by moving their hearts and thoughts.
Therefore, since things work out as a result of themselves
or others taking action due to their hearts being moved,
people think that things worked out because they took action on their own
as a result of their hearts being moved.
When something changes or comes true right away,
people say “this is amazing. This is a miracle. This is a sign.”
On the other hand, when something they want comes true after 10 days, a month, a few months,
or a few years, they think that it came true with the passage of time
because they took action and because the circumstances allowed it.
Have you ever looked at the hour-hand on a clock?
It doesn’t move all at once. Instead it moves gradually little by little.
In the same way, when God is performing a certain miraculous sign,
He makes it come true gradually little by little in the same way the hour-hand of a clock moves.
Therefore, there are many miracles and signs that happen
only when the time comes after a few days, a few months, or a few years have passed.
‘A miracle and sign’ is:
God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son working with human beings
and the purpose becoming fulfilled by those human beings taking action
as a result of the Trinity working with them.
Whatever a human being did by himself is ‘a miracle and sign of a human being.’
God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son perform ‘miracles and signs’ discreetly every day
for those whom They love.
The Holy Spirit makes people take action by giving inspiration to their hearts.
That is ‘a miraculous sign’ that the Holy Spirit was working with that person.
God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son make people take action with their bodies
by inspiring their hearts and making things come to mind.
However, since their bodies are taking action, they think that they are the ones doing it [on their own].
With God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son,
- whether it is a small task or a big task, if They want to do something,
They almost always take action through ‘the bodies of those whom They love.’
However, only about 10% of people know this.
Even if people don’t know, God goes on fulfilling His Will together with the Holy Spirit and the Holy Son.
And by making people know and realize about them one by one, [God] makes them rejoice.
The miraculous signs that God performs, the miraculous signs that the Holy Spirit performs,
and the miraculous signs that the Holy Son performs happen discreetly every day to ‘Their beloved.’
If, by [the Trinity] being with you, you did something that you 100% certainly
were incapable of doing by yourself, then that is ‘a miraculous sign’ whether it is small or big.
I bless that you will realize God, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Son
who lead you through ‘miraculous signs’ night and day even today
and give thanksgiving and glory every day!
