Do We Live in an Age of Miracles?

The Bible contains incredible stories of miracles and divine interventions. Moses parted the sea. Peter healed a man lame from his mother’s womb. Jesus walked on water, drove demons out of people and raised others from the dead. But are these types of events still happening today? Some people say the age of miracles has ended, but I beg to differ. Being a curious journalist, I frequently ask people I meet, “Have you ever witnessed or experienced a miracle or a divine intervention?”

Nearly everyone I ask has a story about something that happened to them that defied natural explanation, something they consider miraculous. It could be a near-death experience, a close call where should’ve been killed, a dramatic healing, or an answered prayer that gave them the help they needed at just the right time. Some people’s entire lives seem to be one long sequence of divine interventions and miracles.

Yet for others, these types of occurrences seem to be totally outside their experience. I wonder why that is. Maybe they don’t recognize a miracle when they see one? Maybe they just haven’t experienced one yet, but their time will come? Whatever the reason, for some people divine interventions are outside their world altogether. When I asked one friend if he’d ever experienced a miracle, he responded that he never had—and even questioned the very existence of miracles. “After all,” he reasoned, “if the miracles like the ones in the Bible are true, they’d still be happening today. How come I’ve never seen one?”

A fair question, undoubtedly. It was this line of reasoning that became the very purpose that I started my radio program, Divine Intervention, on which I interview intriguing people who’ve experienced God’s hand in amazing ways. You see, in my experience, miracles and divine interventions like those recorded in the Bible are still happening—today! People just need to know about them.

During the short time I’ve walked this planet, I’ve been blessed to meet some very interesting people who have powerful miracle testimonies. I don’t believe these meetings were coincidences or chance encounters, but rather divine appointments.

I don’t think it a coincidence, for example, that I’ve met three people who’ve been shot in the head and lived to tell about it. Nor do I think it accidental that I know three people who miraculously recovered from a coma and paralysis after doctors said they should be dead or, at best, vegetables. I don’t chalk up to serendipity the fact that a good friend and college classmate, who was born a paraplegic, miraculously got up out of his wheelchair and walked for the first time at age seven after having been prayed for in the name of Jesus.

I’ve experienced God’s intervention in my own life many times, including two dramatic healings—one from a painful, chronic back condition and one from a grapefruit-sized cancerous tumor that threatened my life. I’ve met people who’ve experienced God’s intervention in all types of ways—not just through healings.

In fact, these experiences seem to be common in the lives of many who are sincere followers of Christ, no matter what denomination they are affiliated with. Their stories inspire hope and faith and need to be told. They are a testament to the fact that Jesus is alive and still working among us every day – and sometimes using miracles.

I’m continually awed by the incredibly passionate, and generous people God has sent my way. They’ve been selfless, transparent, and vulnerable, and in many cases have bared their souls with the single goal of encouraging a broken, hurting world in need of hope to have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ—Immanuel, “God with us.”

If you don’t believe in God or have never experienced a miracle or a divine intervention, it’s my prayer that you will call on the name of Jesus, the miracle maker, and that He will begin to show you some of the many ways that God does intervene in people’s lives daily. The age of miracles is not over, my friend. Open wide your eyes, heart, and mind, and prepare to experience the miraculous!

Everyday Miracles Pay Homage to Divine Intervention
God’s hand at work in the world, evidenced by powerful personal testimonies

Moses parted the Red Sea. Peter healed a man born lame. Jesus calmed a raging storm, healed paralytics, and raised the dead. The Bible contains some incredible stories of miracles and divine interventions, but are these types of events still happening today? The answer to this question, detailed in Daniel Fazzina’s Divine Intervention: 50 True Stories of God’s Miracles Today (Charisma House, August 2014), is an emphatic yes! Contained within the book is a collection of amazing true stories that attest to this fact. You will read astonishing firsthand accounts of people who have been healed of paralysis, "terminal" cancer, and tumors through prayer. You will see the love of God powerfully transform the life of an Islamic terrorist. You will witness the liberation of the demon-possessed, the resurrection of the dead and much more.

“The testimonies are true, amazing, and provide unmistakable evidence that God is still intervening in people’s lives today, just as He did during the time the Bible was written,” says Fazzina. “They are from people with diverse cultural and denominational backgrounds from all over the world who give glory to Jesus for their experiences.”

The topic resonates with Fazzina on a personal level too. More than ten years ago, he was healed of a painful chronic back condition and a large cancerous tumor in his chest. The doctors said he could be dead within a matter of weeks, but God had other plans for him, and now he is “an ordinary man [who] can not deny there are miracles happening every day.”

Daniel Fazzina’s radio program, “The Divine Intervention Show,” can be heard on radio stations across America and on the Internet on A native New Yorker, Daniel currently resides in Virginia with his wife.

My blog post: "Serving the God of the Impossible" is an excellent follow up of this post. I too am a living "miracle". I should not be alive right now. But I've also witnessed many others. The Feeding of the 5000? I've seen enough of those that I almost expect it to happen. I'm not talking about foolish planning and expecting God to come through. I'm talking about preparing a meal for 40 for a group and a children's home, not knowing that the entire neighborhood would show up, and then serving everyone with seconds and leftovers. Miracles absolutely happen today, but God rarely allows his miracles to be caught on camera. He doesn't need that.
