Signs from God
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Here is a testimony with Signs from God. Lord, thank you for the blessings, the signs, testimony, and means to witness.. and thank you for the means to share. I pray that this encourages and helps the faith of many. In Jesus name I pray, amen.
When we love God, we draw near to Him.. He draws near to us, and we should know our calling/purpose (if not, then I suggest asking, seeking, and knocking. He surely will answer in His perfect timing). So then, in accordance to His promise in Romans 8:28, it would be wise to put on the eyes to see and pay attention to our surroundings in order to see any signs from God, because all things work together for the good. If we only look at the things of our lives with face value, we can miss the kingdom of God. When we put on the eyes to see (Spiritual eyes), we will see that the Kingdom of God is at hand. Of course, I’m speaking to those that are born again. If you are not born again, I suggest checking out this page – How to Know Jesus.
Ok, with that said, here is the blessed testimony from yesterday at a wedding, with signs from God. Praise God.
I was asked to be the best man in a wedding yesterday for a brother in-Christ. It was a small ceremony at my local church. I decided to go early, do some reading, and help out my brother get ready if necessary. Before leaving the house, the last thing I did was watch a video on CNN about a fiery whirlwind in Hawaii. Here it is:
While watching the video, I was so amazed at God’s power. A tornado and fire in one. I was in aw of the power of God and thought how small we are in comparison. After watching the video, I went to the church to read. As I arrived, my brother who was getting married was there tuning his guitar. He said “Joe, God is so good. Everything today is going so perfect.” He gave a couple of examples of signs from God, i.e. “I put a new string on my guitar and the string needed no adjustment as it fell perfectly into tune.” I said “Praise God, things cannot help but be perfect in His presence. God is here.” We went to prayer and then I sat down to read.
I just started Ezekiel, and I read.. here is one of many signs from God:
Ezekiel 1:4 And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.
I have learned that these signs of God (coincidences) are alignments of God and the physical world – coinciding with one another, unity, oneness.. So I prayed.. “Lord, I see your sign, your servant is listening. Speak Lord.” Every time this has happened, either He is about to teach me something through an outward situation, via His word, and/or a situation is about to arise where He wants to use me. But, I have also learned to not force things. I just prayed, and then I continued doing what I was doing, reading. It’s good to just relax, have an expectant heart, but to not change our direction. Otherwise, “we” make something manifest and call it “God”. God will work things out naturally and perfectly without our help. :)
After I finished my 3 chapters in Ezekiel, I get up out of the pew and turn around to walk towards the vestibule. Through the window is standing a lady that I haven’t seen in around 2-3 years (I once worked with her). She’s a sister to the bride as well as a sister in-Christ. Signs from God are now manifesting. All things work together for the good.
During our working relationship, we spoke many times about the Lord. She always was so thankful for the encouragement when things weren’t going well in her life. But more importantly, during our working relationship, her son was having many difficulties and she asked me if I would talk to him (young adult). Her son and I had a couple of phone conversations but he wasn’t that interested in talking. Sadly, I have to admit, I eventually let him fall by the wayside. We were both amazed at bumping into each other, and then the Lord smacked me upside the head – “Isaac tried to commit suicide recently.” Lord, forgive me and bless you for your lessons and 2nd chances. In Jesus, amen.
This is so much more serious and in-depth than just this one sign. See, a little while ago, the Lord said to me that He will be bringing people to me. Then, I started to see it manifest. Now, over the past week, He has been teaching me quite a bit about being a shepherd and that I have a responsibility to those that He is sending me. For an example – 2 brothers who have challenges with alcohol missed a bible study last week, but I did not and have not been following up on how they are doing. I was more concerned about my own life and my own desires, thus putting it off. Another example, a brother called me and wanted me to come over and study, but I said declined cuz I wanted to do my own thing. He called me the next morning “Ya, I sinned last night.” These are teachings and signs of God. God forgive me and help me die to self, in Jesus I pray, amen.
All things work together for the good.. I let Barbara know that I would like to reestablish a relationship with Isaac. Also, when I told her about the sign from God and that I had an expectation of something manifesting, she started to cry. “Just recently, I started to lose heart. Back when we worked together, every time I needed encouragement, God sent a word through you to help me. He did it again.” Praise God.
Thus, let me finish this up with a couple more signs of God. Again, He’s speaking to me about shepherding and being responsible to those He sends me. This was being spoken to me via situations over the past week. And the, in the reading of His word of Ezekiel at church, this was the last part of my reading before I stood up and saw Barbara –
Ezekiel 3:17-21 Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.
Also, when I got home, I called both brothers in-Christ who have been having problems with alcohol. As I was obedient and conversed with one of the brothers, I see the blessings unfold as the Lord gives me words to speak, “You are really speaking to me.. Thank you so much for calling and encouraging me.” Praise God.
As I end this posting, I would like to encourage any readers to examine their lives around them. If you love the Lord and have a purpose, then all things work together for the good. Many (if not all) of the souls the Lord sends us, there is good reason. When I evaluate such this, I see that is is almost always for both our and their individual growth.. It is not just for their personal growth. If we think like that, we’re missing it because we have our own eyes on. Because He works all things together for the good. My biggest downfall is concentrating on my own desires (eyes of self) instead of putting on the eyes to see the Kingdom of God. Even when a situation arises that I choose to get upset with and separate myself from it, then I’m missing it. In such a situation, I’m more concentrated on my feelings, thoughts, and my own understanding, instead of using the eyes He has blessed me with. Thus, we have to continue choosing God instead of self.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Father God, I thank you for your signs and teachings. I thank you for the eyes to see that you bless us with. Lord, I pray for additional watering and fertilizing to take place on this seed so that it may bring forth much fruit for your glory. We thank you for bringing forward the increase… blessed is the Vine Dresser who prunes those He loves. Also Father, we have an enemy out there, just waiting for an opportunity to pounce and steal these seeds out of our hearts. Lord, I pray for protection of the seeds, for them to be written on the tablet of our hearts, and to be deep rooted in fertile hearts. In Jesus I pray, amen.
Keep your eyes peeled servant, the Kingdom of God is at hand. The scales want to come back on the eyes constantly.. be watchful and pray.

I have been having SIGNS from GOD every waking moment and the Christians in my life don’t BELIEVE that this could happen to a BABY CHRISTIAN. I have only read the Book of John and just started Acts in Bible Study. The Pastors at my church don’t even Believe me and actually got angry with me. Everyone keeps telling me I have to read the Bible so I can back up everything. My facebook and cell are blowing up because the Non-believers want what I have and they can have it. They are now reading the Bible and that’s how I get them interested in the first place by telling and showing them these SIGNS. My Dad is the only one that BELIEVES me thank GOD. I get CHILLS thinking about all these amazing SIGNS from GOD. I feel that something really BIG is about to happen and these so called CHRISTIANS will have no choice than to BELIEVE me. I now know how JESUS felt when so many people didn’t BELIEVE him.
Awesome Debby. It’s odd and cool at the same time. Don’t worry about the others, just be obedient to God. That’s all that matters.
Hello Joseph it’s now July 6th and I just saw your reply from Signs from GOD. I told you something BIG was about to happen and it is but GOD has SECRETS and doesn’t want people to know yet. Did you see the movie “Adeline?” This woman gets electrocuted under the water and she lives but she doesn’t age. Obviously everyone was after her because they wanted to know why. She had to change her identity for most of her life. Great Movie! My GOD could do this but my Christian family said no this would never happen. They must believe in a different GOD than me cause my GOD can do ANYTING & EVERYTHING. GOD is using me for His GLORY and it will happen real soon (months). I can’t prove it because GOD doesn’t want anyone to know just yet for my safety and His GLORY. I will never let GOD down! It’s me and GOD against the world right now!
PEACH MY FRIEND!
i like what you said about now you know how jesus felt when no one believed him, i feel like this my son is sick all the time no one believes me not even his doctor, working on a new doctor hes sending him to a specialist, my anxiety of worrying about him ,i feel im gonna die cant eat sleep. my son gets horrific migraines ,we need hope. i think what your doing is great, it can surprise you how certain people you thought had your back or trusted you dont believe you.i enjoyed your article .
I read your blog this morning which spoke to me also, then I read “What the Lord is Saying” and received more confirmation, thought it might be for you also so this is what was said: August 29, 2010. Enjoy the peaceful fruit of righteousness. You are receiving this peaceful fruit of righteousness because you have been sowing peace. Those in whom you have sown peace are coming into one accord, agreement and harmony with you and others. Fears are falling to the wayside. Love has overcome them. Your mind is free and those in whom you have sown peace are also getting free of fear. All this is hindering the devil’s plans to agitate your passions and stir up immorality in you. This would be unwise and untoward for you. You have become a new person, a new creation and a faithful disciple of Jesus. Enjoy the harvest of your sowing.
James 3:18 (AMP) And the harvest of righteousness (of conformity to God’s will in thought and deed) is [the fruit of the seed] sown in peace by those who work for and make peace [in themselves and in others, that peace which means concord, agreement, and harmony between individuals, with undisturbedness, in a peaceful mind free from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts]. Ras Robinson
So thankful you listen and obey. We don’t always do that when we are supposed to as you said but thank God for second chances. God bless you.
amen, blessed be the Lord. Thank you sister, thank you for your obedience in sharing. I prayed for more watering/feed, and He guided you to provide it (and others). Blessed be the Lord. Peace be still. :)

I have in the last few days been constantly slipping. At home,work and on trains. No medical issues drugs or alcohol issues in my life. Ive begun to think its a little unusual. Usually caused by liquids on floor. Just to wierd to be coincidence. Maybe im just paranoid, lol. Any insights from anyone?
Hey Paul.. thanks for stopping by.
For me, when I bump the head, stub the toe, etc.. I find many times that my mind is dwelling on something that I should not be dwelling. Personally, this has happened so often that I have learned to thank God. Now, is he pushing my head into the object for the bump? I don’t think so? But, I give praise and thanks to God for the eyes to see.. the knowledge.. and the strength to set my mind upon things on high. It gives me opportunity to confess and turn away.
In the scenario mentioned on this post, I was walking with God.. dwelling with like-minded/like-hearted brethren.. and God was obviously present. I’ve learned that in His presence.. things just are. Everything clicks.. It’s surreal. One thing after another, it just compounds.
If I were to look for a sign in what you said, I’d say.. be careful! ;) haha. Seriously though.. I think this is between you and God. Now, don’t get me wrong.. not everything is from God. Could it be attacks from Satan? Yes. There is only one way for you to know what this is.. and that is to go to the Man Himself (pray). Ask Him if He’s trying to get your attention.. ask Him if there is meaning.. Ask if you’re under attack. But, most most importantly… Listen for an answer. Meditate. As in, don’t ask without expecting an answer (and looking for it). Faith. Full expectancy. An answer will be given, but it won’t be received unless you’re waiting for it.
What I’m trying to get out of this is that no one knows but God. And you can know by communicating with Him. We can have all kinds of assumptions.. but to know the answer, you and God will have to talk.
For instance.. we have examples of God testing people in the bible. We have examples of judgement from God for sin. We have examples of Satan attacking. We have the natural results of consequences of sin. There are more examples.. So now, if something bad happens in my life.. who can say, “It is of Satan.” or “It is of God” ? Only through revelation from God can I know.. Rationalization produces rational results only. What is needed in your situation is revelation from above.
I’m gonna pray for that word of wisdom.. word of knowledge.. that revelation from above for you. God bless Paul.
I was Justin the scare of my life, I was on my way to grab or pick up my boy friend from work.

Signs of God often manifested themselves to me throughout my first forty years of life. Numerous are the events and miracles which all served to remind me that I was on course and that God was very real. The adversary was also very aware of me and was doing his utmost to destroy me every step of the way. Get thee behind me Satan was my only recourse in dealing with him. That is by getting as far away from his influence as possible. After relocating my family to a piece of heaven on earth, I took up associations with a few Christian churches and groups in the area. By this time my relationship with God was indeed very acute. As usual though, the fellowship of faith in Jesus Christ was not providing me with the answers I needed. Why are there so many Christian churches, each teaching their own variations of doctrine? God could not possibly teach two different truths or He would cease to be God.
How acute was my relationship? I could ask him anything relative to my temporal needs and He would manifest the answer to me, usually by the next day, and He would sometimes comfort me with an assurance that my future was in his hands. Then one day it started to snow, and kept snowing like it would never stop. I happened to notice a trailer home with no occupant, which was in danger of being crushed by the heavy snow. I obtained a shovel and snow shoes and made my way up to it where I spent an hour clearing the two meters of snow off of it. Six months later I met the owner by accident and he thanked me for saving his trailer home. I did not know that anyone had seen me remove the snow. He then invited me to build his permanent home. After work on the home was complete, he offered me a Book. It was titled, The Book of Mormon Another Testament of Jesus Christ. He also wrote his testimony inside the cover, saying that Jesus Christ was his Savior and that he hoped my family would discover the truth of the book and that it was from Jesus Christ. I was careful to accept the book and I knew that I would soon know if it was true, because God was always guiding me. By the time I was one chapter into the book, I knew it was from God. I continued to read it with great interest and came to an event (Mosiah 18), where a prophet of God (Alma), in 147 BC, was inviting people to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. I knew The Book of Mormon was from God and I accepted that two thousand one hundred and sixty two year old invitation to come into God’s church. I say this because God helped me realize that if the book was true, then the source had to be true.
After I was baptized, everything that followed, taught me over and over again, more times than I can count, that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is Jesus Christ’s restored church to the earth. I firmly testify that The Book of Mormon and the Holy Bible (correctly translated) are two written witnesses, which together prove that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Eternal Father and the creator of this world. Jesus Christ stands at the head of his church today and directs his prophets and Apostles in these latter days.
Men will continue to assert their opinions, beliefs, doctrines and authority, but it is not the servant who chooses God. It is God who chooses his servants. The faithful servant submits to God’s will and always recognizes the voice of God. I absolutely love that my search for God has culminated to place me, my family and all of my deceased ancestors on the path that Jesus Christ has marked. No other church or religion on the earth offers salvation to the whole human family. The final marker of God’s true kingdom in growth upon the earth, never to be thrown down, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
I finally found people this act from God I had experienced.
I asked a question on a dark cloudy night.
Is my mother with you.
I got an answer in the sky.

if asked God to give you a sign if wrong and strike me if so I am then wind blows and mirror broke but didn’t hit me what sign would god be giving me? that I was wrong or right?
Hi Calhoun, if I’m reading your post correctly, you asked for a sign and the wind blew, which broke a mirror. And as a result, you are wondering if the breaking mirror is a sign of either right or wrong as to whether you should have asked for a sign?
If I’m correct, then as I’ve commented in the past, I can only provide my opinion and I cannot say, “this is of God” or “this is what God was doing/saying to you..” You see, I don’t know your story.. I do not know what conversations you have had with God.. I don’t know what He is doing specifically in your life at the moment. I mean, I do know God’s nature. He wants a relationship with us.
So with that last statement pertaining to relationship with God, if you are asking for a sign from God – you are speaking to Him = Good. Knowing God, He is kind, He is good, he wants that relationship with His children. So my gut instinct tells me that this was neither a ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ item. It was simply God letting you know that He heard you, and He gave you a sign so that you can trust in Him, you can trust that He is. You can trust that He hears. You can trust that He loves you. You can trust that He’s paying attention. You can trust that He loves you so much, that he wants you to have a close relationship with Him. And if the wind blows, and a mirror breaks, I’m not too sure if it’s about the wind or about the mirror. It may simply be about you and Him, and a connection. “Yes, I hear you my child. I’m here. I’m paying attention. I love you. Let’s talk..” is the sense that I get.
I’m very cautious on replying to things like this because I do not know your walk with God, I don’t know the relationship, I don’t know what God is doing specifically in your life, I don’t know what is going on in your life, I don’t know what conversations you have had with him, and so on. Therefore, I don’t want to lead you astray.
All I know is that for me, many times that I asked God for a sign, I was in great need of Him. I was at the end of my rope.. or, I was holding onto that last thread at the end of the rope, and it broke.. and as I started to free fall from the end of the rope, I called out. He answered with a sign. To me, it was as if Jesus is reaching down during my free fall and snatching my wrist with His response – Gotcha! – He got my attention through the hardship, I called out to Him in my darkest moments, and He answered. To me, that is step #1 in a relationship with God – a relationship with Christ.
But again, I don’t know your background, so I’m just rambling on with my thoughts. :) I hope something here is of assistance..
