SUPER CLAIM: GOD INTERVENED IN SUPER BOWL

Divine hand seen spanking Denver while honoring Tim Tebow

With more than 112.2 million viewers, Super Bowl XLVIII was the most watched television event in history, and perhaps God wanted it that way for a spectacular demonstration.

A new theory is being proffered by a South Carolina football fan suggesting the Almighty directly injected Himself in Sunday’s event to even the score, so to speak, after the Denver Broncos booted quarterback Tim Tebow, an outspoken Christian who is no longer playing in the NFL.

“God’s hand was all over this Super Bowl,” says David Campbell, a WND reader from Myrtle Beach, S.C., who explained his view of the divine intervention in a letter to the editor.

Get the behind-the-scenes DVD about Tim Tebow’s life, as well as the Tebow for President bumper sticker!

“The book of Daniel, chapter 4, verse 25, says that God rules in the affairs of men and gives the kingdom to whom He will. Luke, chapter 18, verse 7, says that God will avenge His elect when they have been unjustly injured.”

Campbell began his theory with some background.

Two years ago the Denver Broncos dismissed Tim Tebow after he had taken them to the playoffs thanks to his miraculous pass that won the game against the heavily favored Pittsburgh Steelers. Tebow’s exhilarating 80-yard pass in the opening seconds of overtime won the game.

Not long after, the Broncos brought in Peyton Manning and replaced Tim Tebow as No. 1 quarterback. The rumor going ’round was that GM John Elway didn’t like Tebow, didn’t like his Tebow prayer, fans or following and wanted rid of him. Elway didn’t want him as backup quarterback either or on the team at all. Tim Tebow was traded to the New York Jets in March 2012.

Peyton Manning was brought in to much fanfare and hoopla. Big salary, big bonus, trumpets blaring.

Campbell then fast-forwarded to this year’s Super Bowl, as the Denver Broncos were matched against the Seattle Seahawks.

“Denver was the favorite, because of Manning. The Seattle quarterback? A kid named Russell Wilson. Christian, small guy, nothing really of note. No big records, no big wins, no big following. The New York Times labeled him forgotten, undersized and underestimated. Kind of like David against Goliath.”

TD here. I really don’t go in for the “God’s Quarterback” stuff, but I think there’s actually a case to be made here. The only reason Tim Tebow got dumped was hostility to his Christian faith. If it was performance based only, they would have kept working with him. 

Now here’s another wrinkle. The New England Patriots had also just snubbed Tim Tebow, and for the same reasons. And now, the Patriots looked like they had a strong chance to beat Denver and go on to the Super Bowl, but the Pats’ great quarterback was defeated by the Broncos’ quarterback, making a sad day for fans in Boston. 

To get to the point, both the teams that had sidelined Tim Tebow for his faith, got their day of payback. And the media made it all about the quarterbacks (remember that Tim Tebow was a rising star quarterback). And the Broncos’ quarterback got a career-ending photo taken of the ball sailing right over his head, right at the beginning of a humiliating game. 

And Tim Tebow? Starring in one of the best Super Bowl Commercials, called, “What can Tim Tebow do with #nocontract?”

Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.

  1. iN AS MUCH AS I SAY ‘OH PLEASE GOD’ LET HIM SCORE, OR BLOCK THAT KICK, WHEN WATCHING THE PATRIOTS. I REALLY DON’T THINK GOD CARES WHO WINS A FOOTBALL GAME.

     
  2. I’m not into sports, so did not see the game; but, it Tebow had been “gotten rid of based on him being a Christian” — it is only fair that God would bestow upon another Christian the might, the skill, and the will to win. God is not a loser, nor will he be mocked! This certainly seems like a more than fair outcome!

     
  3. Thank you traildust for this most interesting post. God is interested in every aspect of our lives, every detail, everything. God is a God of Love, but He also dispenses Justice. I see wisdom in traildust’s argument and I wholeheartedly agree with him.

     
    • Even I, who’s neither interested in nor watch football, know that the Super Bowl final score was really lopsided. Perhaps if we were able to really “see,” we would have seen a team of Angels helping the Seattle Seahawks. 🙂

       
  4. What a true shaem it is that a young talented young man like Tim had a great future career ripped from under him because of the kind of prejudice he suffered. I don’t feel sorry for the Broncos at all. Elway made a stupid decision and that’s that. I’m not saying Payton Manning isn’t talented , God knows he is. But there’s something really wrong here. I can’t quite put my finger on it. It’s almost like the Broncos took a dive. Sorry it’s just a gut feeling that something was really awry,. Maybe the team ahd over indulged in too much pot at high altitude before they got there and it afffected their game. lol just kidding.

     
  5. There is an interesting and inspiring video of several Seahawks players being interviewed and asked “Who is Jesus?”. It can be found at. Faithtap.com It took place before the Super Bowl. I just saw it yesterday and for the first time thought perhaps God had a hand in the Seahawks win. (Or should I say “absolute spanking of the Broncos”). Of course this kind of video would never be carried by mainstream media.

    • Thanks Jerry! I just added the video to your comment.

       
    • Thank you Jerry for this absolutely wonderful video!

       
      • Yep…thought you folks would like that one. It blew me away. There’s always too much attention given to the thugs participating in pro sports and not enough of the “good guys”. It also reminds me of something that happened to me and a buddy while we were out (unofficially), volunteering on National Forest land, clearing downed trees on a favorite mtn bike fire road. We met a wonderful Christian lady who was employed by the Ntnl park service. We worked together for awhile and somehow the subject of our faith came up. We finished our work together with a word of prayer. In her prayer she thanked God for reminding us that we (as Christians) are not here in small numbers, we are not alone, there are many Children of God. (This happened a couple of DECADES ago and I still remember it) I just think that we are under such attack these days that we forget we are many. We need to know our enemy, put on our armor, and pull the trigger. I REALLY appreciate you folks and what you do to inform and encourage us……and keeping it lighthearted from time to time. God bless you.

         
        • Thanks Jerry. You’re part of it, too. Our numbers really are great. Like when the prophet Elisha’s servant was worried about an approaching army:

          So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” And the LORD opened the servant’s eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. – 2 Kings 6:16-17

           
    • That was truly awe inspiring. Sometimes, we unaware that many of our brothers and sisters are also follow Our Lord and Savior. Seeing that has just made my day! Thank You!

       
  6. Dis’ His faithful for their faith and see where that gets you, Broncos!

     
  7. Well, as a Hawks fan, I tend to believe it was our absolute best defense in any game. They totally shut down the Broncos. Sure, many of the Hawks are Christians and Wilson thanked God. Yet I believe He did assist through giving our players the strength and talent to be the best that they could be!
    Finally, we have a Super Bowl win, woo hoo!!
