Miracle Worker

The power of the Holy Spirit is so profound it is truly a wonder, beyond human intelligence. Let's take a look at what the Bible says about miracles. Look at 1Corinthians 1:20 it says Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified; a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than man's wisdom and the weakness of God is stronger than man's strength. Now look at verse 31 it says Therefore, as it is written; Let him who boasts boast in the Lord.

It says in Psalms 77:13 Your ways, O God, are holy. What god is so great as our God? You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples. With your mighty arm you redeemed your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph. God works is really a mystery Look at Acts 19:11 it says God did extraordinary miracles through Paul, so that even handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured and the evil spirits left them. Some Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon possessed. They would, In the name of Jesus, whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out. Seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest were doing this. One day, the evil spirit answered them, Jesus I know, and I know about Paul, but who are you? Now continue reading too verse 17 it says When this became known to the Jews and the Greeks living in Ephesus, they were all seized with fear, and the name of the Lord Jesus was held in high honor.

It is written for us to pay attention look at Hebrews 2:1 it says We must pay more careful attention, therefore to what we heard, so that we do not drift away. For if the message spoken by angles was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment, how shall we escape if we ignore such a great salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him. God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.

Jesus performed many miracles during his time. Look at John 10:31 it says Again the Jews picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus said to them, I have shown you many great miracles for the Father, For which of these do you stone me? We are not stoning you for any of these, replied the Jews, but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God. Jesus answered them, Is it now written in your Law, I have said you are gods? If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came-and the Scripture cannot be broken-what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then so you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, I am God's Son? Do not believe me unless I do what my Father does. But if I do it, even though you do not believe me, believe the miracles, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.

Let's see what Jesus said in John 14:11 it says Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. Look at John 3:1 it says Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemuss, a member of the Jewish ruling council. He came to Jesus a night and said, Rabbi, we know you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with him. Now look at John 20:30 it says Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

A Miracle In Me

Back in the year 1979 I had a large growth on my neck, the size of a golf ball. Still today I do not know where it came from. I went to the doctor, and a team of doctors told me that the would have to operate to remove it from my neck. So I check myself into the hospital and a day before the operation the doctors examine me again, and the told me I had additional growths in several places on the body, and I had to operated on those places as well.

That night I prayed and went to slept. The next morning the growth on my neck was gone. I mean as if nothing was ever there or any other place on my body, the doctors were baffled. Thanks be to Jesus and his Father God for the Miracle of his power. I thanked him for allowing me to receive his miracle, believing in him, and the Power of the Holy Spirit. All Praise and Glory go to the Lord Jesus and his Father God.

Love Always,
Your Sister in Christ,
