Are we witnessing a miracle in north korea the stream leaking clear fluid early pregnancy

After all, just a few months back, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un was threatening nuclear war as he and President Trump rattled their sabers. The situation looked grim, and many pundits were concerned that Trump was provoking a madman with a powerful army and arsenal.

As for Kim himself, an editorial by David A. Welch posted in January on the Globe and Mail noted, “Mr. Kim is clearly not a run-of-the-mill leader. He has assassinated his brother, executed his uncle, and had senior military officers killed by anti-aircraft fire for no more reason than failing to stand up quickly enough when he entered the room or nodding off in a meeting.”

Go back 6 months. Who would have imagined that, in the last week of April, 2018, the leaders of North and South Korea would meet at the border in mutual embrace?


Or that the president of South Korea, President Moon Jae-in, would be recommending Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize? (Honestly, I’m not sure which is more remarkable, the smiling pictures of the two Korean leaders, laughing and holding hands, or the headlines about Trump deserving the Peace Prize.) Supernatural Explanation?

Again, we don’t know exactly how this will turn out, and we don’t know what natural circumstances produced this amazing breakthrough. But the breakthrough is so shocking and significant that I’m not only looking for natural explanations. I’m looking for supernatural explanations.

As you could imagine, this took some time. But what got my attention was the fact that almost no one opened their eyes or looked around. They were all fervently praying. Even in the nursery, the mothers prayed with eyes closed, holding their little ones in their arms as they rocked back and forth.

Before the Korean War, the majority of the nation’s Christians were in the North, and they fled South or went underground when the country was divided. Then something remarkable happened. Christianity began to spread like fire through South Korea, with many of the world’s most significant congregations based there today.

Yet these congregations are not complacent. There’s a powerful enemy just miles to the north, an enemy that threatens to invade and devastate their nation. And so, for decades, they have prayed for divine protection from their hostile northern neighbor.

But they have also prayed with many tears for their oppressed northern siblings. These S. Korean Christians grieve over the deprivation suffered in the north, over the persecution, over the famines. And when they see the N. Koreans weeping when their national leader dies – they had worshiped him as if a god, just as they do today with Kim – these S. Korean Christians also weep, praying that the veil of deception would be lifted.

Back in July, 2016, I participated in an open-air worship service and prayer meeting at the DMZ together with local and international Christians. It was chilling to look over the border and think that, just a few hundred yards away, a whole nation lived virtually cut off from the outside world. Yet we prayed with fervor for the reunification of Korea, adding our voices to the millions of others who have cried out to God through the decades.
