Unusual Miracles

How do we know that Jesus was approved by God? Not by His philosophical prowess or oral eloquence, but by three things: miracles, signs and wonders.

Jesus healed the sick, cast out demons, cleansed the lepers, raised the dead, fed great multitudes, turned water into wine, etc.

How do you know if someone is a real servant of God? We measure his ministry according to the same standard outlined here in Acts 2:22.

Take for example, Paul's apostleship. "Truly the signs of an apostle were accomplished among you with all perseverance, in signs and wonders and mighty deeds" (2 Cor. 12:12). The working of miracles are the signs of true apostleship, not just the presiding over of a huge megachurch or a denomination.

If a preacher claims to be an apostle, miracles must be constant occurrences in his ministry. They must be there in "all perseverance"--in other words, happening in great consistency.

Hebrews 2:4 says: "God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will?" Again the testimony of God was proven by miracles, signs and wonders.

Miracles were so normal in the Ephesian church that God started working unusual miracles among them (Acts 19:12). All throughout the New Testament, we see that the reality of God was proven time and again by supernatural miracles. To say that we have passed the days of signs and wonders is effectively denying the Holy Scriptures!

The word "miracle" in Greek is dunamis, which means "power". As a Holy Spirit led christian, you have received the dunamis of the Holy Spirit to work miracles in Jesus' name (Acts 1:8).

But why is it that we don't see miracles or healings take place regularly in our churches today? The overwhelming reason is the presence of doubt and unbelief for them to happen in our midst (Mark 6:5-6).

Remember, without faith, it is impossible to please God . . . or see unusual miracles.
