SIGNS, WONDERS & MIRACLES
Are signs, wonders and miracles for today?.
Miracles are the dinner bell., an invitation to the banquet….an invitation to salvation.
When a person experiences a miracle it modifies their theology. All of us have some theology. The two extremes are : – God doesn’t exist or God does and a large spectrum in between.
But if someone experiences, at first hand, the manifest love and power of God it will always shake their world view and their view of Him. It changes the conversation.
Jesus healed the sick…He told His disciples to heal the sick….He said we would do what He had done …and more.
He sends us out “in the same way”……not with mere words but with the power of God.
Just to be sure that we don’t think we have a different commission or equipping
“Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” (NIV)
We were never intended to do what Jesus told us to do without the same possibilities of doing what He did. He doesn’t ask us to make disciples of all nations by conversation, good works and fine words. He sends us out in POWER, the same power that raised Lazarus from the dead, the same power that healed the blind man and the same as that by which “He healed them ALL”
God is good – all the time
It is not God’s will that any should be lost and not His will that people are sick.. HE DOES NOT MAKE PEOPLE SICK.. Jesus healed all who came.
Jesus did what He saw His father doing. He did that which was in The Father’s heart.
God is good and all good things come from God.
God wants us to demonstrate thevalues and the powers of the Kingdom of God. ie the dominion of the King. There is no sickness in heaven!
Jesus taught us to pray “...may Your Kingdom come and Your will be done ON EARTH as it is in HEAVEN“. Jesus paid for it all : Sin, Sickness & Deliverance.
He said “it finished”, all done and over.
So in answer to the question : Are signs and wonders for today?
They certainly are. For if they weren’t we would never be able to fulfill the commission.
