A man was stuck in the middle of a large lake. He was a devout man and prayed every day to God.
Well soon some fishermen came by and asked him to get on their boat so they could take them to safety. The man refused answering, "God will save me". The fishermen left.
Soon after a couple in a rowboat came by and asked the man to get on their boat and asked him to get on their boat so they could take him to safety. The man refused answering, "God will save me". The couple left.
Quite a while after that, a small cruise ship went by and the crew asked him to get on board so that they could take him to safety. The man refused answering, "God will save me". The ship and its crew left.
The man drowned not too long after that.
In Heaven the man questioned asked God, "Why did you let me drown? Why did you not save me?"
Whereupon God answered, "I sent you two boats and a small cruise ship to save you, what else did you want me to do?"
You ask whether miracles happen instantly? You say these pastors are dead as dodos? Fie for shame! They are not dead, not until their names are no longer spoken. To be dead is to be forgotten, they have simple passed on. Can you not see the miracles happening already? You are mourning their passing. That is a miracle. You are enlightening the world with your words. That is a miracle. A fireman risks his life to save a small child in a burning building. That is a miracle. A doctor performs a highly difficult surgery will almost no hope of success and manages to pull it off. That is a miracle.
Miracles do not appear out of thin air like magic. It takes someone to perform an action for it to be a miracle. God did not put you on this Earth do rely on his power day and night. He put you on this Earth to learn that you must support each other, to love your neighbour as you do yourself. Do not ask God for miracles, ask him for his miracle workers. Ask him for those people that perform amazing feats in situations that call for it, the man who moved a vehicle weighing over a ton which trapped his friend, the mother who lifted a tree by herself when it trapped her children. Those miracles happen instantly.
The devil may have taken the lives of the two pastors, but I'm very sure that only God will receive their souls.
