Do You Believe in Miracles?
Natural processes are miraculous. They cannot be duplicated by man. Super-natural processes are called “signs, wonders, and miracles” (Heb. 2:4). God worked signs and wonders through Christ (Acts 2:22). The apostles were granted power to performs signs and wonders (Acts 2:43). Turning water into blood or wine is not a natural process. (Exo. 4:9; 7:19; John 2:9; 4:46). Raising the dead is not a natural process. God sets aside natural processes in the signs, wonders, miracles recorded in the Bible.
In order to confirm the claims of Christ and to verify the word spoken by His apostles, supernatural powers were wielded. The sick were miraculously healed and deformities were instantly corrected (Acts 5:16;3:2-11). Some were made to see (John 9:11-15) and others were struck blind (Acts 13:11). Without the miraculous powers, the apostles would have been credulous. Miraculous powers confirmed what they said to be truly the word of the Almighty (Mark 16:20; Heb 2:1-4).
God’s will is completely revealed (2 Pet 1:3; 2 Tim. 3:16-17). Supernatural miracles have it confirmed. Once the revealed will of God is complete, the miracles are neither possible nor necessary (1 Cor. 13:8-10). Misguided people still contend that the identical power given to Jesus and His apostles is available to them now. Do not be deceived. Men can no longer turn water into either blood or wine, give sight to blind or blind those who see. All so-called miracle workers today are frauds and fakes.
Believe the miracles of the Bible? Absolutely! Those marvelous things have no natural explanation. Believe the so-called miracles today? Absolutely not! They are cheap fakes and frauds. This is one of the most provable statements ever made. Want to put it to the test anyone? — DRS
