Acts 2:19 "And I will show portents in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and smoky mist."
The days in which we are living, according to Scripture are the days of the Spirit of God being poured out upon "all flesh".
Whenever a person has faith, receives faith, receives Christ - something amazing takes place. They are a new creature, right here, amidst all that is dying and decaying.
This is a portent. An amazing sign to the human race, that another person has come richly into what life has ever been about - knowing God, being filled with the Spirit of God (no longer empty and aimless), and participating in hope, now, in Life.
Are you a Portent amidst your peers, your family, your community?
You really should be!
