The Book of Acts, chapter 2, verse 19, tells us that in the sky and around about there would be signs and wonders. In the Gospel of Mark, chapter 16, verse 17, we are also told that signs and wonders would follow the believers in Jesus. What are these 'signs' (semions) and 'wonders' (teras)?
Sometimes I think people are looking for something that looks like special effects and science fiction like scenes. To be fair about some of the things seen in the sky some of these seem to fit this, but I think people often overlook more regular, down to Earth, happenings. A sign could be something as little as encouraging a lonely person and giving them hope. Another sign or wonder could be driving the demon of depression away from a downcast soul. Signs, wonders, and works were displayed by Jesus and it is said by the book of John (chapter 14), that the same would be associated with his followers.
Do we see enough signs and wonders today? What do you say?
