PostSubject: What is the difference?   Sun Jun 10, 2007 4:12 pm

...between a prophetic vision and a religious miracle? The reason I thought of the question is as follows:

In 1993 my grandmother (my Dad's mother) was very sick and on life support. It was Christmas day and I was riding with my Mom to my other grandmother (My Mom's mom) for Christmas day. Half way there I just happen to look up in the sky and noticed a very strange cloud, like noting I have ever seen before or since. The cloud was in the shape of a cross. I grew up near an army base and knew what jet trails look like and it was nothing like a jet trail. Looking at it I got this horrable heavy feeling. That afternoon during Christmas dinner the phone rang. I was my Dad, he said that grandma had died.

I am not a Christain nor do I subsribe myself to any particular religion but it is someting that I will always remember.

Which was it and how do you tell?

I would say that a vision is something that happens to you as an individual, where a miracle is something that can be witnessed by others. She doesn't specify whether anybody else saw this, so we don't really know.

My Mom was the only one in the car with me but I didn't point it out to her because she was driving and the cloud gave me a wierd feeling.

What if God himself were to come down and tell people that the world were coming to an end in 17 years?

To me, a vision is merely that which could lead to a miracle. Or, Perhaps a specific type of miracle. To really effectively answer that, I suppose it'd depend on your definition of 'miracle'.

God has supposedly come down and said there was an end several times. The main group that buys into that is the seventh day advantist which I am sorry to say started in Central NY.

I'm not saying that multiple people can't have the same vision, but it's more of a personal thing. If they had it on a stage, not everyone in the audience would be able to see the vision, whereas they would be able to see a miracle (assuming their vision was good enough)

I don't suppose I have a definition for miracle. Or vision. I think maybe either definition would have to be more circumstantial.

I agree, visions are more internal, possible to be seen by more than one person but generally just some sort of augmented -feeling- you get. Miracles obviously have to include a deity or their assistants or supposedly so, have to be positive and have to be something that has an effect.

Seeing odd clouds and knowing someone is dead = Vision

Seeing odd clouds having a sudden premonition that you need to turn down thisroadrighthere and saving the life of someone in a car wreck down there = Miracle
