A SIGN AND WONDER!
Jesus said 'Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe' (John 4:48) Throughout the history of the bible, God made many signs and wonders so that people might believe in Him (#Deuteronomy 7:19, #Psalm 78:43, Isaiah 20:3, Daniel 6:27). In John 9, the disciples asked Jesus how a man became blind; if his blindness was caused by his sin or his parents' sins (v.2). Jesus answered that his blindness was so that the works of God may be demonstrated (v.3). Jesus is very much alive today but many still do not believe. God desires all to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:4) and continues to wrought #signsandwonders so that we might believe. You see the #gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world before the end comes (#Matthew 24:14) and when the truth is #preached, signs will follow confirming the word (Mark 16:20) This young man had stuttered all his life since birth. The #HolySpirit led us to cast out a dumb spirit and a spirit of fear and the he became #healedinJesusname ! A man in the congregation shouted out for him to read to prove he was healed. Here we captured him reading lyrics from a music sheet as his father stands behind him, moved and witnessing for the first time his son speak without stuttering! #GlorytoGod That day he was made a sign and wonder for those who were there! God uses signs and wonders to test His people too, to test that we follow Him and not follow the prophet (Deuteronomy 13:1-3, Jeremiah 27:16-18, 1 Kings 22:22-23). There will be false prophets that will show signs and wonders (Mark 13:22). We are to test the spirits that operate in every #prophet (1 John 4:1) or anyone for that matter. The only way of testing is to discern by the word of God. The word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword that will help you differentiate what is of God (spirit) and what is of man (flesh) so that you can discern the thoughts and intents of the people you come across (#Hebrews 4:12) Seek God and immerse yourself in the #WordofGod, it is the most powerful tool in a #Christian’s walk.Posted by Kevin Dexter Ministry on Monday, December 14, 2020
