This story should interest anyone who likes stories about people with 'superpowers'.
This account, from the Old Testament, talks about a miracle made by God.
As my STEM section illustrates, we live in a world bound by natural laws.
But, this world was created by God, who, at His own will and whim, is able to override the laws of physics as He sees fit.
This has meant parting the Red Sea, and raising people from the dead.
These acts are called miracles.
And certain people, because of their anointing and level of faith in God, are able summon to miracles from God,
within God's will.
‘The Axe’ takes place in Israel’s history, quite a while before Jesus was born.
A man named Elisha was a prophet of God, and he operated a school, where he taught men how to be prophets.
2 Kings 6
The company of the prophets said to Elisha, “Look, the place where we meet with you is too small for us. 2 Let us go to the Jordan, where each of us can get a pole; and let us build a place there for us to meet.”
And he said, “Go.”
3 Then one of them said, “Won’t you please come with your servants?”
“I will,” Elisha replied. 4 And he went with them.
They went to the Jordan and began to cut down trees. 5 As one of them was cutting down a tree, the iron axhead fell into the water. “Oh no, my lord!” he cried out. “It was borrowed!”
6 The man of God asked, “Where did it fall?” When he showed him the place, Elisha cut a stick and threw it there, and made the iron float. 7 “Lift it out,” he said. Then the man reached out his hand and took it." (NIV)
What can I add to this?
