It occurred without any fanfare and would have hardly have been noticed had I not been anticipating its arrival. It may not mean much to most folks, but it means a lot to me. You see, what happened couldn’t have happened without the Lord doing it...

On Saturday, September 8, 2007 at 2:02 p.m. Central Daylight Time, Divine Intervention received its one-hundred thousandth visitor. Whoever this person was lives in New York City and came by way of a Google search using the term "what is divine intervention?" That Google search brought them 2.43 million results of which we were number two on the very first page.

Two points to consider here: First, 2.43 million results and we’re the second one on page one? Only the Lord could have placed us there. We’ve done nothing to enhance how search engines rank us. Second, one-hundred thousand visitors? Some corporate sites, and even a few Christian sites get that a day, a week or a month. It took us eight and one-half years to achieve that number after purchasing the domain name. What’s awesome is that fewer than ten percent of the people who come to Divine Intervention are return visitors. In other words, over ninety percent of those one-hundred thousand folks had never been to Divine Intervention before. That’s over ninety-thousand new people in just over eight years who the Lord has led to Divine Intervention to read His Gospel message.

Now do you see why I’m so excited? I boast not of myself or the work that He has placed with us, but I boast in the Lord Himself (Psalms 34:2). For as I said, this couldn’t have happened without His guidance and intervention. We’re a small ministry. We don’t send out a regular column, we simply write what the Lord leads us to when He leads us to, which is one reason this is the first article of the year, and as far as we know, could be the only one for the year. We don’t ask for any money for Internet or domain expenses, and when it’s offered, we respectfully say thank you, but we don’t need it. Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against smaller ministries that ask for help if they need it, for they are supposedly doing the Lord’s work after all, but He continues to bless us so that we need no help. For instance, we have a brother in Christ who owns a local Internet Service Provider company and donates the web space for Divine Intervention.*I love you for that Bill* This is only one of the many blessings He has provided.

I want to leave you with a list of the countries whose residents have visited us. The list grows larger all the time, and as the Lord’s appearing draws nearer, visitors are coming from corners of the globe we thought we’d never hear from:

Algeria, Andorra, Antigua and Barbuda, Argentina, Aruba, Asia/Pacific Region, Australia, Austria, Bahamas, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belarus, Belgium, Belize, Benin, Bermuda, Bhutan, Bolivia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Botswana, Brazil, British Virgin Islands, Brunei Darussalam, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Canada, Cayman Islands, Chile, China, Cocos Islands, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cote D'Ivoire, Croatia, Cuba, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Domincan Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvadore, Eritrea, Estonia, Ethiopia, Europe, Faroe Islands, Figi, Finland, France, French Polynesia, Gabon, Germany, Ghana, Gibraltar, Greece, Grenada, Guam, Guatemala, Honduras, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Ireland, Islamic Republic of Iran, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Jordan, Kenya, Kuwait, Latvia, Lebanon, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia (the Former Yugoslav Republic of), Malawi, Malaysia, Malta, Martinique, Mauritius, Mexico, Micronesia, Monaco, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Nepal, Netherlands, Netherlands Antilles, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Northern Mariana Islands, Norway, Oman, Pakistan, Palestinian Territory (In Israel), Panama, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Peru, Puerto Rico, Qatar, Republic of Korea, Romania, Russian Federation, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Samoa, Satellite Provider, Saudi Arabia, Serbia and Montenegro, Seychelles, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Suriname, Swaziland, Sweden, Switzerland, Syrian Arab Republic, Taiwan, Tanzania, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia, Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States, Uruguay, U.S. Virgin Islands, Vanuatu, Venezuela, Vietnem, Yugoslavia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

And all those are another blessing...

"My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad." (Psalms 34:2 KJV)
