"an infirmity thirty and eight years" - God's Direct Interference

God's Direct Interference

Direst interference by God with the human world has not occurred so often.  There must be a big reason whenever God has interfered with the human world.

In the case of Abraham 4000 years ago, God separated Abraham and his clan from the Mesopotamia civilization and thus from Sumerians, Babylonians, and Hittites.

In the case of Moses 3300 years ago, God separated Moses and other Hebrews from Egyptians and made them settle in Palestine.

In the case of Christ Jesus 2000 years ago, God destroyed Sadducees and the second temple in Jerusalem and thus established a new religion, Christianity, out of Judaism.

In the case of Muhammad 1300 years ago, God separated Arabs and other tribes from Judaism and Christianity, while Judaists were sticking to denial of authority of Christ Jesus and Christians were claiming that Christ Jesus was God.  

And, since the seventh century when God allowed Muhammad to establish Islam, there has been no direct interference by God.  But God must be watching the world and the mankind.  And it is a mystery why God did not interfere with the human world in the 20th century where two world wars were fought with the great sacrifice of Judaists.

Christians and Judaists played major roles in the 20th century in a very tragic manner, which might not be enough for God to make another interference.  But in the 21st century, Muslims are gaining momentum as seen in acts of terror involving the so-called Islamic extremists.  So, we may expect another God's direct interference any time soon.
