“Miracles, Signs and Wonders”

Acts 2: 17-21 17 ‘ And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams.

18 And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy.

19 I will show wonders in heaven above And signs in the earth beneath: Blood and fire and vapor of smoke.

20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD.

21 And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD Shall be saved.’

Miracles, Signs, and Wonders. Without exception, miracles, signs, and wonders accompanied the ministry and preaching of the early church. In the scripture above, Peter reminded the people that Jesus’ credibility was based on His miracle ministry. This same credibility accompanied those set apart in leadership, such as Stephen, Phillip, Barnabas, Silas, and Paul, as well as the original apostles. Miracle, signs, and wonders were commonly accepted in the early church, and leaders led the way in giving place to such ministry. Also, the early church leaders prayed for miracle seeing them not as random, occasional events, but as worthy evidences of God’s anointing, continually glorifying Christ through the church, and therefore to be sought and welcome.

We as disciples today need to want and welcome these same miracles, signs and wonders, in our churches. Some say that this was just for the days of Jesus and His disciples. In reading the above scriptures as well as the ones below, we see that it is meant for today also.

John 14:12. 12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.

13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

14 If you ask[c] anything in My name, I will do it.

Matthew 28:19-20 19 Go Ye therefore[a] and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Amen. When we as people of God, get serious about the work that God’s has left for us to do, it will happen again. You do not need to plan a big Revival, or go to a Azusa Street Revival. Just get right with God, and do His work. Stop all the politic and favoritism, and let Godly people do the work God has call them to do, and watch the miracles, signs and wonders happen again. Get back to the basic, which is “Go Ye”

Joyfully, In The Master’s Service
Blessings, Prayers and Love,
