Michael E, I knew here was passages of scripture where the Apostle Paul was no longer able to heal anyone which I wanted to share with others, but I forgot where they were.

Thanks for sharing them.
---Rob on 6/23/10


The Apostle Paul, late in his ministry apparently lost his (sign) healing ministry Phil. 2:25-27 Epaphroditus was sick
2 Tim 4:20 .. Trophimus have I left at Miletum sick
But he never lost his ability to lead people to the Lord, a far greater miracle
---michael_e on 6/23/10


Lindaa, Jesus did not heal everyone. Read John 5:1-8.
---Rob on 6/23/10


One sows, another waters, but it is God who giveth the increase. None of us here know how many gospel seeds had been planted already. Being a hospital, we all know that there are people like MarkV and others who do go into hospitals all the time and pray for the people there and share the gospel. Perhaps what this lady did was water the seed by giving. I know that when you do what the Spirit of God prompts you to do, there is fruit. No pun intended. It is the logical mind that tries to "figure out" the hows and whys of it all instead of simply trusting.
---Linda on 6/23/10


Since Jesus healed all who came to or were brought to Him before He died and rose again, it is evident that none of them were born again yet they received healing. The healing was and is the outworking of Christ's compassion and it drew them. Not the healing itself, but the compassion He showed. Compassion is "common passion" and that compassion is still in as much operation today as it was then.

Does anyone honestly believe that God would heal an entire facility & not save one soul? Come on people, let go of that unbelief! Stop always trying to find something wrong with faith & live IN it, with Jesus.
---fay on 6/23/10

fay, our FAITH is in Christ Jesus, not faith in faith.

Where in this story was the Gospel ever given? or are we to just assume it was?

So she goes and gives everyone an apple and candy bar as says what..NOTHING? Or eat this and you will be SAVED? or eat this and you will be healed. So who was believing for their healing..the woman giving the Bar and Apple or the one receiving?

We are NOT ASHAMED of the Gospel of Christ...neither is GOD!!!

The story is malarkey!

Faith comes by HEARING not by EATING!!!
---kathr4453 on 6/23/10


I do not claim 100% success yet, but I will because I am expecting to be more and more led by the Spirit, more and more transformed into His image, ever more moving from faith to faith and glory to glory, until is is no longer I but Christ who lives within me.
---Linda on 6/23/10


The hospital was a mental facility. I do not remember for sure but it seems like it was in the New England states. Maybe Conn. & it was within the past 30 yrs. Sorry, I do not recall. I met the woman & I believe her. The Lord has performed many other miracles through her, including raising the dead. It was in a newspaper but don't know which one. Of course we do not want to give her the credit because it wasn't her that did the miracles. It was God,Jesus, the Holy Spirit. But God used her because she believes. She is 93 yrs old I believe.

Yes it would be some miracle that a candy bar and an apple can save someone's soul without even hearing the Gospel!!!

Those who stand for something will not fall for everything that comes along!!!
---kathr4453 on 6/23/10


Linda, interestingly enough, those you mentioned did not write their own press releases. Luke recorded all those events.

However, all I hear now are those who CLAIM to have done this or that. Even in the epistles written to the churches by Paul, John, Peter, James etc, no such bragging went on about "I healed this or that"..I" raised this or that one...you must do these too", etc. James talks about the BODY of Christ praying for one another...


And I wonder about the hospital srory...was anyone SAVED? or just healed? so healed and still LOST? That's not the Gospel at all!

So far, I keep hearing, "Signs and wonders were only for the apostles." Stephen and Phillip were not apostles yet "many notable miracles were wrought through their hands". Stephen was raised up from serving as a deacon to being sent out with signs and wonders following. Phillip was translated to another place supernaturally. He baptizes the Ethiopian eunuch and then disappears, to be found in Jerusalem. Acts is usually called "the acts of the apostles" but really it is "the acts of the Holy Spirit" first through the apostles and then spreading to those who believed. We have the same Holy Ghost today. He has never changed, nor did He go back to the Father to get another commission once He came.
---Linda on 6/23/10


Miracles are performed by Godly men and women, even to this day. The purpose of miracles proves the existance of God the Father. Even Jesus attributed his miracles to the Father and not of himself.

The reason why today's world doesn't experience miracles as uch as in the past is because of denominational churches. They teach their congregation to be hearers of the Word only and rarely do they ordain others to go out into the world and preach the gospel. They teach their congregation a watered down gospel full of platitudes. They teach their congregation to come to "church" every week. If every person quit going to their denominational church there would be only one church standing, the church of Christ - the body of believers.
---Steveng on 6/22/10


Fay -- I've worked in a lot of hospitals. I don't know of ANY that would let you take an apple and a candy bar to every patient.

There are patients who are not allowed to have anything by mouth, who are restricted to liquids only, who are brittle diabetics and their diet is carefully watched. Nobody can even go into ICU unless they are close relative to a patient.

Even if it was a specialty hospital of some sort with few acute patients, they don't allow strangers to go into every room.
If she gave an apple and a candy bar to everyone there, THAT would be a miracle in itself.

God's miracles comes many ways. Jesus turning water into wine or raising Lazarus from the dead are examples of God working against His laws of nature. There can be no natural explanation for these events. They serve to validate Christ as the divine Son of God. In the narrowest sense, we link miracles to the biblical word for sign. Miracles are called signs because like all signs they point beyond themselves to something more significant. God used miracles to prove or attest His agents of divine revelation (Heb. 2:3-4). The supernatural powers demonstrated by Jesus and His apostles were the Fathers divine confirmation of the gospel of Jesus Christ for the entering of the Church(John 10:38, Acts 2:22, Romans 15:19, 1 Cor. 14:22.

//Linda, I don't know what you're replying to, as I cannot find a post I made here.//

I was replying to your response regarding the testimony I gave. Must have gotten the blogs crossed. I apologize.
---Linda on 6/21/10


Yes, of course God performs miracles today.
Most of the true miracles, however, don't come at our bidding. That's why they are miracles, because it is not according to anyone's expectations.

However, the power of suggestion is VERY strong. It has been documented in medical science and else where. It works for the same reason a placebo works., If you suggest to someone that they CAN do something....they try what they might never had tried otherwise....and at times they find they are less disabled than they thought!

Linda, I don't know what you're replying to, as I cannot find a post I made here.

||MarkV, I did meet one person who simply did what God told her to do. God told her to go to a city she had never heard of. She went ...||

Et reliqua.

fay, can you tell us the name of the woman, the name of the city, the name of the hospital, and when this happened?

Also, how she was able to buy so many apples and candy bars for all persons in such a big hospital and transport this merchandise therein?

I'd love to be able to verify this.
---Cluny on 6/21/10


...that testimony was duplicated in three different people so far....a man who had fallen on his knees and one so swollen his pants legs were tight around it. When my husband gave that testimony, immediately the swelling went out of his leg. A man with cerebral palsy who had only walked six steps his entire life got up out of a wheel chair and walked twenty-two steps, and a man who had never walked had hands laid on him after that testimony was given and stood up out of his wheelchair and walked. It is the power of testimony. That is why Paul gave his so many times. He knew the power to duplicate it was in it. The testimonies of the Lord are sure and I take them for my inheritance. Every time someone gives one, you can receive the same.
---LindaS on 6/21/10


Awesome testimony, Trav. Did you know that the word testimony means "to repeat, to do again, to duplicate"? Every time you give your testimony, it is wrapped around the power of God to duplicate that testimony in someone else's life. My husband recently shared his testimony where God straightened his leg after he had been run over by a car. He dragged that leg behind him until one day his father got down on his knees and cried out, "God, please heal my boy." Immediately, his leg was straightened....continued
---Linda on 6/21/10


Cluny, I have many more of those same testimonies. Room does not permit me to record them here....not only my testimonies, but the ones where another was healed by prayer or the laying on of hands. Jesus didn't clean out hospitals either. He healed all that came to Him or were brought to Him. And He knew where faith was present and where it wasn't. Faith can be perceived. I move as I am led by the Spirit because He knows the heart looking for truth.

fay, such things would make the news. Can you tell us where to find this information?

People can claim all sorts of things. Even Benny Hinn claimed to have raised the dead. Funny all these come from people who claim to have done this or that...never the one on the receiving end.

WRONG WRONG and a thousand times WRONG!
---kathr4453 on 6/21/10

You are exactly right. It would be wrong for you.
In taking positions that GOD forbade, so your word/testiment/witness lacks any credibility. Your faith comes up a little shy of a mustard seed it appears. About a thousand and two times.

Psalm 89:1
I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.
Romans 1:17
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
---Trav on 6/21/10


Of course. A response to a message for salvation is a miracle for there is no louder shout in heaven than for the redeemed soul.

No one comes to the Son unless the Father sends him and within the miracle of salvation God uses the preacher.

We are warned

2 Timothy 3:8
Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

Jannes ansd Jambres did the exact miracles as Moses.

I am a recipient of a healing miracle myself. My mother, the doctor and myself are the only ones that knew it at the time. I had a growth in my knee scheduled for surgery.

You had the nerve to call me names, and condemn what I say,
but you speak against the Word of God that I presented ... I don't ask you to forgive me because you tempted me.
---MarkV. on 6/20/10

To forgive is unnecessary. I understood you a long time ago. No fellowship? It was never yours to determine....

Not once have u presented any scripturally witnessed word of GOD.
Tempted? You've put another spin on "REPROVE". Scripture posted reproved you. And still does. You post authoritively with no witness backing ur post. Scripture witnessing negates your doctrines.
Proverbs 9:8
Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, he will love thee.
---Trav on 6/21/10


Fay, I am not perfect and never claimed to be. I disagreed with his answer in his agreement on the burning of millions of Jews. I took his answer very serious. He is not the first to call me names or call me something. There is a list of people that when they cannot answer with the Word of God they answer with their mouths. The list is getting long.
You say,
"Now you have cracked that hard exterior, Amen." you, a sister who claims to heal with power, rejoices when a brother sins. Do you know what a sin of omission is? It is when you could have helped someone and didn't. You have not healed any children with cancer at any hospital. Do you say amen to that?
---Mark_V. on 6/20/10


Well now you're making progress MarkV. You admitted you attacked in a personal fashion which was wrong. Now you have cracked that hard exterior, Amen. However, you turned around & said you weren't apologizing because he tempted you. Do you honestly not see the pride in that? Mark, please understand pride was the original sin, the sin that got satan thrown from heaven like lightening. Please, in the name of Jesus, let go of the pride. It seems your arguments as a whole are about God being so Sovereign, but you lack the love that comes from God alone.

Fay, I never force anyone to believe anything. I cannot do that. I do not have that power to change a heart, not even yours. I post the Truth and let God take care of the rest. Presenting the Truth is our job, and that is what I am doing. You say God does not force Himself on no one, if He doesn't why is He endwelling believers? How were you able to come to Christ while lost inslaved in sin? How were you able to believe? How were you able to repent? It all came from God. Or do you say, "But the time came when I was willing, willing to receive Him" But it is the Lord who made you willing Psa. 110:3, Phil. 2:13. Now that is a miracle, for if He so had wanted, He could have left you in the state you were in, lost and without hope.

Fay, I do not question your faith in Jesus Christ or God. I question your claims which are false. You have no right to question ours by praying on line so that everyone can hear you. The very same way as the Pharisees did in front of the people to sound real religious. My faith is in Christ not in some person who claims they can pull the strings of God whenever they want. And yes, God uses people, to bring what we call miracles. To God they are not miracles. To Him it is just work He has to do to complete His plan. With Him nothing has change. He knows the beginning and the end. It is God's will that is been done, not yours or mine.

God uses all means to bring miracles. It is not by chance that a person is in one place at the right time to perform that miracle. In 9/11, those buildings held about 50,000 people each, and many were saved by fireman who responded in time, to those people it was a miracle. The last big earthquake in California was so great it tumbled Freeways on top of another, yet it was a Sunday, world series, and many people were home instead of on the road, on Monday's through Fridays'. That was a miracle, very few people died. Miracles happen in hospitals when there seems to be no hope. My sister live an extra ten years, because of a doctor in San Antonio who was trying a new drug. That was a miracle because she only had hours to live.

1 Corinthians 12 lists healing and miracles as being gifts of God to His new covenant people. Revelation 13:13-14, 16:13-14, and 19:20 speak of power to perform miracles by the wicked one. In Old Testament see Exodus 7:9-12. The greatest miracle is changing men from sinners to saints, from rebels to loyal disciples. We are not to trust in miracles and praise the miracle worker, yet miracles do follow those who believe. It is God that works through vessels of clay--1 Corinthians 4:5-7.

Brother Lupe: You had better believe God still uses born-again believers to perform miracles. In Matthew 28:18, Jesus said He had all authority given by the Father. When Pentecost came He gave that power to us who believe. Not all have that gift on a routine basis, but all born-again people have this latent ability through the power of the Holy Spirit. We do nothing; it is God working through us. Unfortunately many don't use this magnificent spiritual gift.

yes he can. I want to be like Paul who's shadow healed people. God will only use a person if they want to be used by him. God won't use a lazy person. I just got out of church not to long ago, and a brother bought a car for another sister and her 4 kids, she is going through a divorce, her husband has backslide. God worked through this man to help another person, this man didn't know what situation this woman was in, but God knew. Miracles are real. but the person has to "let" God use them.

Hi Lupe,

The short answer is no, He doesn't USE people to perform miracles or for any other reason! Chapter and verse - where does the Bible say that God USES anyone for anything? He is a gracious and loving God. He always ASKS people to work for Him and speak for Him. That's how miracles have always been done. That's how miracles are still done today.

Dear John,
Thank you for asking. The Bible teaches that God is the same, yesterday, today and tomorrow. What this tells me is that God is just as competant to produce miracles BUT when we see them we must not jump to conclusions as to reality before checking them out carefully.
