Anyways can you please explain Im confused or did I misunderstand what you said. Hun-dreds of people claimed to be healed in her meet-ings, including “unbelievers” and “atheists” and people of “other faiths.”  In spite of the fact that people were being healed at her meetings, Kuhlman publicly admitted she did not have the “gift of healing,” that it was the Holy Spirit  who was doing the healing. Jn 12:37). However the word of God is powerfully complex yet simple at the same time. Additionally, because Scripture clearly mandates that a message in tongues be “interpreted by a known interpreter;” this procedure is also commonly violated in most churches where tongues are practiced. the obvious scriptural answer is that “supernatural signs” are for the Jews —   they weren’t meant to simply alleviate pain and suffering in the lives of God’s people (as many   in the church today believe) — so “stop denigrating your faith” when God fails to deliver you       from some infirmity; and keep in mind, contrary to what some proud pulpiteers might claim —  “none of us possess a great faith;” read the Book! Without the miracle of the resurrection the early Church would not have come into being. We want to be delivered from every problem in life (again, that’s the norm); we’re not into “considering trials joy” (cf. I reject, though, that anyone possesses the gift of healing as did the Apostles. Essentially, the duration of a spiritual gift is determined by its “purpose or function” — i.e., a spiritual gift will only continue to exist until it fulfills its God-intended purpose or function (cf. None of the men who saw Jesus raised from the dead are around anymore. Satan also works, with lying wonders, even bringing down fire from heaven in the sight of men. (Hebrews 2:4) "So Paul and Barnabas spent considerable time there, speaking boldly for the Lord, who confirmed the message of his grace by enabling them to do miraculous signs and wonders." God didn’t save us and leave us on this planet to enjoy great physical well-being and have an endless supply of nickels in our pockets! Miraculous Healing, raising the dead, giving sight. ),  so it is important to “carefully examine all of the evidence on some issue” before committing to   a particular interpretation. Of course He can. God provided manna every day for Israel, but she simply tired of His miracle of provision… the children of Israel kept on exhibiting unbelief in spite of the persuasive signs and wonders God had done before their eyes. Her flamboyant style (that has since been emulated by many) added to the intrigue of her ministry, and she became a regular guest on radio & television shows. One of the primary arguments that believers can perform signs and wonders today is the biblical truth that God does not change. or that he appeared to    be a “nice person”? The Holy Spirit did not come to glorify Himself or make Himself the center of attention (as He is in some churches) — when the Holy Spirit becomes our focus in life rather than Christ, we have a problem. The first reason is that He so frequently worked miracles; and the second reason is that the four Evangelists – Matthew, Mark, Luke and John - gave such a large amount of space in giving detailed accounts of these miracles. When Jesus came into this world, He was born into a Jewish family in the Jewish city of Beth-lehem, and was raised in the Jewish city of Nazareth. Jn 14:15; Mt 25:35-40). The “health & wealth doctrine” that has been so widely preached here in North America for the past hundred years is completely lacking in biblical support. But I do believe God gives various ppl in the church these gifts as spoken in 1 Corin 12:7-10. Christ is the One with whom we are to cultivate intimacy! And by common consent they all met together [at the temple] in [the covered porch called] Solomon’s portico. We could invite news commentators and reporters from all over the world to attest to the genuineness of these healings, in much the same way as happened 2,000 years ago. Your entire argument collapses if you actually read the Bible, and not try to take certain parts out of context in order to rationalize some of these man-made opinions. With the presence of thousands of “divine healers” all over the world today (they exist in nearly every religion), there is a tendency for many in the Christian community to believe that some of these healers possess “the gift of healing” and are genuinely legitimate. Therefore Jesus and all of the apostles “demonstrated their authenticity” by performing extraordinary miracles (2 Cor 12:12) — thus “substantiating their message.”  Though God continues to hear and answer prayer, and oftentimes responds super-naturally (be it healing or some form of deliverance), there is no need to “authenticate” some particular individual in this age with “supernatural gifts” — God’s revelation to us (i.e., the New Testament) is now complete, and it this body of work that the Holy Spirit confirms in our hearts and minds (as previously stated). And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. The miracles performed by the apostles merely attested to the validity of their apostleship, thus substantiating the truth of their message about Christ. Here was a group of disciples who had repented of their sins under the ministry of  John the Baptist (Mk1:4), but word had not yet come to them that “the Christ” had already come and died and been buried, and rose from the dead and ascended back into heaven… and that  the “Holy Spirit” had fallen upon all of the believers [in Jerusalem] on the Day of Pentecost…    so they had not yet received the Holy Spirit; that is, they were not yet “indwelled by the Holy Spirit.”  Remember, they were nearly a thousand miles from Jerusalem, so word of Christ’s coming had not yet reached them. Christ is the One we follow! The issue is that some in the Christian community insist that the “gift of healing” is still vogue — it is here, however, where we differ. We will focus here specifically on whether or not their claims of the continuance of modern day signs and wonders are valid. He calmed a storm just by telling it to be quiet (Mark 4:35-41). All of these things, though, are just that – tricks. The book of acts mentions a number of people, by name, who also performed miracles and they were not apostles either. Jesus certainly had compassion on the sick, but their physical comfort took a distant back seat to his concern for their spiritual well-being. Acts 13:5; 13:14ff; 13:43; 14:1; 15:21; 17:1, 17; 18:4, 19, 26; 19:8; 22:19; 26:11). If you ignore the “context” of those verses… or fail to carefully define the “terms” that are used… or fail to see what “other verses” have to say, you can easily draw the con-clusion that “all you have to do is seriously identify something you want, ask God for it, and you’ll get it!”  If you happen to be struggling with this concept, study the following passages and you’ll develop a fuller under-standing of what the Bible teaches:  cf. As for the third, no one can do what the Apostles did. The Old Testament and the nation of Israel is the “context” (the foundation) that underlies all of the gospels; so without a basic understanding of God’s work in the world from creation to the birth of Christ, you will seriously limit your understanding and appreciation of much of what Jesus taught in His earthly ministry. The manifestation of spiritual power is not the miraculous or the spectacular, but the consistent exhibition of the Lord in our lives — i.e., love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness, and self-control (Gal 5:22-23). (cf. Keeping the foregoing in mind, following are a number of passages in the New Testament that help us focus on the “purpose” of those supernatural gifts identified as the “SIGN GIFTS” —. The signs and wonders were being performed “at the hands of the Apostles” who were “among the people.” Signs and wonders were simply not being performed by Christians at large, but by the Apostles and there are no more Apostles today. Floating ax heads, parting seas, talking donkeys, fire from Heaven, and resurrections from the dead[3]are miracles. [10]The reasoning is that if God did miracles in the past (which He did) and God does not change (which He doesn’t) and “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (which Hebrews 13:8 states) then He should be performing miracles today with the same frequency as He did back then. 2 Th 2:7; Jn 16:8-22; Jn 3:5; Titus 3:5; 1 Cor 12:13; Rom 6:3-4; 1 Cor 6:19; Rom 5:5; 8:9; 2 Cor 1:22; Eph 1:13; 5:18; Col 3:16; Gal 5:16-17, 22-25. Required fields are marked *. God is not dispensing gold dust and angels are not dropping their feathers. So a particular text rightly understood, is God’s interpretation, not man’s — those individuals whom God used to write the Scriptures were “moved by the Holy Spirit” (2 Pet 1:21), and the every word they penned was “God breathed” (1 Cor 2:13; 2 Tim 3:16). Regarding the “gift of tongues” in the New Testament, there is no conclusive evidence that tongues were meant to exist past the completion of the writing of Scripture (God’s new revelation), and it is highly doubtful to    the most respected theologians of our day that what is practiced today is the same thing as the tongues mentioned in the New Testament. The New Testament had not been written… they were still living during the “time of the apostles.”  Though all of us as believers today continue to receive the Holy Spirit at salvation, we no longer receive the corresponding gift of tongues because we no longer live during the apostolic age… furthermore we now have the advantage of having the entire inspired written revelation of God in our hands, through which the Holy Spirit confirms the truth in our hearts (read Acts 16:14; Jn 14:16, 26; 15:26; 16:7-8, 16:13-14; Rom 8:15-16). Before launching into the topic at hand, let me just say that after seventy years of living and more than forty years of studying theology and teaching in churches and colleges, I believe I can offer a fairly “learned perspective” on the issue of signs, wonders and miracles. It should be comforting to know that thou-sands of theologians have contributed to the incredible text that we now have in our hands today. Our problem as Christians is that we all want God do things our way, and when they don’t go our way we become impatient and frustrated within (that’s simply what it means to be human). Without the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit, they only appear to be extraordinary “wonders.”. and recognize that He loves you with an everlasting love, and that your circumstances simply have an eternal purpose that are beyond your understanding… that He sympathizes greatly with your weaknesses (which we all have)… and that He is not “throwing you under the bus” because of your weak and disappointing faith — contrary to the opinion of some, none of us have a gargantuan faith! Consider Acts 2:43, “Everyone kept feeling a sense of awe; and many wonders and signs were taking place among the Apostles.” Notice that the signs and wonders were being done by the Apostles. They can’t do what they claim they can do. When writing his commentary on First Corinthians, he mentioned the fact that there was no evidence at all regarding the activity of “tongues” in his day (AD 400); it was completely un-known to him, so when he came to exegeting and interpreting chapter 14, he simply refrained from commenting. (Jn 15:4-5). There are many miracles, signs, and wonders that Jesus performed that left his disciples shaking in their sandals. It has a great impact on those who believe the Word. When developing a “theology” on a particular subject, it is important that one consider everything that Scripture has to say about it — and not just build a theology on a single verse. Though the “cord” is vital to the operation of the “appliance,” the appliance itself is the object with which you are occupied. Acts 2:1ff). With that said, you must not just be a person who simply reads and preaches what others have written, no matter how famous and respected they may be — they are not God’s anointed in the sense that they are infallible — you have a responsibility to study and confirm everything with Scripture, including what I have written in this study (Acts 17:11)… the Bible is “God’s authority manual” to us. Christ is our inspiration for living a life of holiness! Its God sovereignty. Acts 5:12 is even more clear, “At the hands of the Apostles many signs and wonders were taking place among the people.” Notice the specificity and clarity of the Holy Spirit as He inspires God’s Word. Surely God can validate without the use of miracles. (Jn 14:6). Kuhlman had a powerful ministry here in the US until she passed away in 1976 from open-heart surgery at the age of 69. (Jn 1:4; 8:12). He required it in the Old Testament, and God does not change, so we should be doing it today. In addition to that, we now live in “the age of faith,” where the divinely inspired Word of God (via the Holy Spirit) is the revela-ion that is to guide our lives; furthermore, since “new revelation” is no longer needed (or further prophesied), there is no need to authenticate some new messenger and substantiate his message. However we must be careful to not extract from biblical truths by saying no one has the gift of healing when there is clear biblical evidence that God has imparted this gift to some. Such action is not at all heretical — that is precisely what happened in the early church. It is also important to remember, the Jewish Christian community had a very difficult time “accepting” the fact that GENTILES were coming into the Church (if you just skip over this    fact, you are ignoring an extremely important reality of the first century church); that was the Jewish culture of the day. (Is 45:5-7, 22). More definitively, though, is that even in biblical days miracles were quite rare events. Todd White, head of a ministry called “Lifestyle Christianity” can be seen on YouTube going up to people at random on the streets and commanding them to be healed. 1 Cor 1:22). Or do you get angry with him and put him in a dark closet and shut the door on him? Rather, when God performed miracles He did so with the primary purpose of authenticating one of His messengers. i am also not saying that everyone will be healed however again biblically speaking God does still impart gifts of healing to His believers. The entire article is nonsense and is not biblical. For one, if miracles were commonplace then they would cease to be, well, miraculous. Acts 17:11; 1 Cor 14:29; 1 Th 5:21; 1 Jn 4:1). As we’ve already mentioned, God made a donkey talk but I sincerely hope you haven’t been seeing any talking donkeys lately. In no way am I dis-paraging someone’s spirituality who genuinely believes in this gift — who am I to judge? had received the word of God, they sent Peter and John who came down and prayed for them, that they (i.e., the Gentiles) might receive the Holy Spirit; for He had not yet fallen upon them — then they laid hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit” (Acts 8:14-17). To build on this idea, in the mid-1800s several people began to claim that they had the gift of tongues and were speaking in “the unknown languages” referred to in the King James Bible. Signs and Wonders: A Study in the Scriptures A recent Newsweek poll indicates 84% of Americans say they believe God performs miracles; 48% claim to have experienced or witnessed One of the primary arguments that believers can perform signs and wonders today is the biblical truth that God does not change. This miracle is the centerpiece of Hebrew history and OT religion, and is a demonstration of God’s power and love in action. Signs, Wonders and Miracles In the Last Days... Signs, Wonders and Miracles In the Last Days... About Us. What will your response be? This was a great post. Jesus is now Lord of ALL! So if there are two or three opinions on what Scripture says, someone is obviously misinterpreting Scripture — one of them may be right, but all of them cannot be right. Individuals certainly benefited from the healing miracles of Jesus, but these acts were always done to authenticate Who He was and to affirm His divine mission to atone for sins. Warm all the kitchen with They love,And light it with They peace;Forgive me all my worrying,And make all grumbling cease.Thou who dist love to give men food,In room, or by the sea,Accept this service that I do —I do it unto Thee. I totally agree about NARS, and Prosperity gospel, Todd white, bethel. The reality is, “Bible-style miracles” have ceased because they are no longer a necessary “authenticating reality”… there is no longer any need for God to “authenticate” a particular messenger… His Word is now complete, and when it is spoken or read the Holy Spirit will do His work in the souls of those who humbly listen to it. The late Kathryn Kuhlman,  an evangelist who achieved national notoriety for the “miracle services” she held in the 7,000- seat Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles back in the 60s and 70s, became the central figure in the emerging “charismatic movement.”  When she discovered that people were experiencing miraculous healings in her services, she began to make “divine healing” the focus of her ministry; sadly, at that point she no longer continued to make the “gospel message” the main thrust of her ministry. Scams! Printable pdf Version of this StudyBelief in miracles lies at the heart of the Christian faith. Christ is the One who continually intercedes on our behalf! Who do you think Jesus is referring to? If you have then I would recommend Ephesians 5:18 as your next memory verse! Confirms Jesus Christ is working with a person Choose a Title Below... ➤ Miracles of Jesus — Jesus of Nazareth wrought many miracles, each one showing him to be the true Son of God from Heaven. With the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the life of believers, we are all validated from His perspective. There is no room for “hiding” behind false pretense in the Christian community — everything we do must be done with honesty, openness and integrity. 9 (What does “he ascended” mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions ? What role does God’s glory play? This whole blog is based on man made opinion and traditional man made theology with no wisdom or spiritual understanding. Stephen was a deacon. Woe to you Capernaum!… it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment than for you!” (Mt 11:21-24; also cf. Not until Acts chapter 10 did a Gentile respond to the Gospel, and then only one man and his family. Signs point primarily to the powerful, saving activity of God as experienced through the ministry of Jesus and the apostles. “If you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is….Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God.When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.”, Copyright 2012 Donald W Ekstrand    Tempe, AZ, Acts 2:22 — Peter raised his voice saying, “Men of Israel, listen to these words:  Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know.”, 2 Cor 12:12 — Writes Paul to the church at Corinth: “The signs of a true apostle were performed among you with all perseverance, by signs and wonders and miracles.”, Heb 2:3-4 — “How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? We are all of great concern to our heavenly Father. The greatest miracle is when the dead are raised, not physically, but spiritually. ‘Why aren’t we seeing  the same kind of miracles that we read about in the Bible?’  ‘Why aren’t people being raised from the dead and the hungry being supernaturally fed?’  Some Christians maintain that the only reason some believers don’t see miracles is because of ‘unbelief.’”  The truth is, no one is duplicating the miracles of Scripture… no funeral processions are being cancelled… no homes  for the blind are being shut down because everyone’s sight is being miraculously restored…     and no wheelchair factories are seeing a reduction in business because fewer people now need them. HIS POWER is not in question! That’s what Gideon wanted to know. Furthermore, much to our consternation, God usually does things in a very slow manner (at least from our perspective); we all want a God who acts instantaneously! As the renowned Irish preacher John Darby said, “The devil is never more satanic than when he carries a Bible!”  To deny that there are dangerous false teachers out there in the Christ-ian world today is to be tragically misinformed or highly gullible (Acts 17:11; 2 Tim 4:3). After it was at the first spoken through the Lord, it was confirmed to us by those who heard, God also bearing witness with them, both by signs and wonders and by various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit according to His own will.”, 1 Thes 1:5 — Writes Paul:  “Our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power and    in the Holy Spirit will full conviction; just as you know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake.”, Mark 16:20 — “The twelve disciples went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked  with them and confirmed the word by the signs that followed.”, 1 Cor 2:3-4 — Paul said to the Corinthian church, “I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling, and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but    in demonstration of the Spirit and of power.”, Matt 11:2 — “When John the Baptist who was in prison heard about the works of Christ, he sent word by his disciples, and said to Him, “Are You the Coming One, or do we look for someone else?”, John 2:11 — “This beginning of His signs, Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory.”, John 4:48 — “Jesus therefore said to him, “Unless you people (remember, He’s talking to Jews here) see signs and wonders, you simply will not believe.”, John 10:25 — Jesus responded to the Jews saying, “I told you, and you do not believe; the works  that I do in My Father’s name, these bear witness of Me.”, John 10:37-38 — Jesus said, “If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me;  but if I   do them, though you do not believe Me, believe the works; that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father.”, John 20:30-31 — At the end of his gospel, John writes:  “Many other signs therefore Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these have been written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.”, Acts 14:3 — “Paul and Barnabas spent a long time in Iconium speaking boldly with reliance upon the Lord, who was bearing witness to the word of His grace, granting that signs and wonders be done by their hands.”, Rom 15:18-19 — Paul writes, “I will not presume to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me, resulting in the obedience of the Gentiles by word and deed, in the power of signs and wonders, in the power of the Spirit; so that from Jerusalem and round about as far as Illricum I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.”. (cf. History records that the miraculous, supernatural gifts that were so prevalent in the early church ceased when all the apostles died. He walked on water (Matthew 14:22-33). Carefully reflect upon all of the foregoing. The irony is, there is no such thing as “unknown languages” in the Greek manuscripts; as stated above, the translators simply added the word “unknown” (in italics) because they were humble and honest enough to admit that they didn’t know anything about it, and didn’t want to venture a guess. Very grateful for the clearly written, Biblically-sound take on this. On the other hand, the phenomenon in Corinth appears to be a mixed bag — the immature Corinthian Christians had come from paganism with its standard emphasis on frenzied worship and ecstatic utterances; it should be noted, healings and ecstatic utterances are common in many religions today. 1 Cor 12:28), he listed “tongues” last, and urged the Corinthian believers to desire the “greater gifts” (1 Cor 12:31) — such as teaching the word because it edifies the church (emphatic!) Furthermore, though some advocates believe tongues are proper in private devotional use, no such use exists in the New Testament. (Mt 16:24). John 2:11 – “This beginning of His signs, Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory, and His disciples believed in Him. Bill Johnson, pastor of Bethel Church in Redding, California claims that gold dust and angel feathers fall from the sky in his services. There is certainly no shortage of miraculous claims today. “Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith?” The most natural meaning of that verse is that God is working miracles in their midst by the Holy Spirit. In a word, the purpose of signs, wonders and miracles was “authentication” — Jesus demon-strated on numerous occasions that He indeed was the “Anointed of God” (i.e., the Messiah / Christ) by performing signs, wonders and miracles (cf. If it happened in the Bible, it should happen today they reason. (Jn 13:5-14). Why not? baptism”    (Acts 19:1-3). This week is the last week discussed miracles throughout the Bible. One of his more well-known tricks is to command a person’s leg to grow about half an inch.
