Where would one expect most miracles to be visible, Pyongyang or Washington D.C.? Perhaps I am talking with people who do not sign up to the thought of miracles in this century, at all? Are you able to assume with me for as soon as that at least somewhere in the world, a God-sent miracle occurs from time to time?
Then back to the question. Where would this miracle almost certainly occur? In a land where in actuality the Bible is believed and where faith seems to abound, or in a location where darkness prevails? Why not a Muslim country?
The solution needless to say is wherever there’s faith for that miracle, and a crying out to God for it. Most of us remember Capernaum, the town where in actuality the Son of God Himself could do this little because the faith level was so low.
It’s joked today that the American church needs to strive to obtain first to the Capernaum level. For Jesus did execute a few miracles there. What would it end up like in your church if only a “few” miracles occurred? Then we’re able to start believing for phase 2: everyone being healed, as when Jesus was here.
Ah, but do not forget phase 3: “Greater works than these you shall do best acim podcast…” More than Jesus? Men have pondered this for many time. Surely he “meant” something other than what He said. He meant salvation. Surely the forgiveness of sins surpasses a healing miracle. But Jesus forgave sins. Or He meant “greater in number.” Possibly.
If that’s what He meant, we’ve got some believing (I started to say working) to complete, wouldn’t you say? Miracles and healings and signs and wonders, surely they are not in the centre of what Jesus came for, but has anyone found the Scripture that says He’ll never do these things again?
Imagine if people in Pyongyang, or Washington, or Peking, or Mecca, called upon the name of the Lord for His full delivering power, unhindered by traditions which have crept up in the church, traditions of unbelief, what might happen then?
