Steven 2, man, no matter who it is, does not peform supernatural miracles. Only God does. The salvation of a heathen is a supernatural act of God. While he deserves death, God graciously saves him. The blind are given sight by God. Ears to hear, and a new heart to percieve. Another miracle is the power of God in preservation. No creature has power to preserve itself. God is called the preserver of "man and beast" ( Psa. 36:6). How about the preservation of the earth? God preserves the earth and all means to give us life. God doesn't need godly man or ungodly man to do supernatural miracles. God was never in need of anything from anyone. God is all blessed in Himself.
---Mark_V. on 11/18/11


Steven presents a god that I cannot recognize. He says,
"Miracles, supernatural events from God, are performed only through a person of God to glorify his name"
This god he presents needs godly man to perform miracles. God does not need man to do as He pleases.
"And I also have withholden the rain from you, when there were yet three months before the harvest, and I cause it to rain in one city, and caused it not to rain upon another city" ( Amos 4:7). "He gave you from heaven rains and fruitful seasons, filling your heart with food and gladness" (Acts 14:17). There is millions of miracles God does and He does not need man to do them.
---Mark_V. on 11/17/11


Miracles, supernatural events from God, are performed only through a person of God to glorify his name. While God uses non-christians to perform a certain task, they cannot perform miracles. A doctor (whether christian or not) using his worldly knowledge of the human body to heal is not a miracle from God. God does not need man-made tools to heal. Balaam's donkey and the burning bush were not performing miracles.

Would a non-christian performing miracles say it was from God or say it was his own doing? Would he bring glory to God or to himself?

And for many of you who do not believe in miracles happening today will be the ones that will exchange gifts when the last two prophets mentioned in Revelation who perform miracles die because they do not conform to your belief or denominational church doctrines.
---Steveng on 11/16/11


Rhonda, can you not answer without accusing others? You said,
"false ministers of SATAN want many to believe "miracles" happen everywhere from anything and from anyone"
Just because they do not agree with your view of God you speak filth of others.
Scripture is full of miracles that God did through the evil of others. The story of Job is one, the Story of Joseph is another, the story of Pharaoh is another, and I could go on and on. God used evil to bring something very good. You only see the devil, and completely forget to see God behind all of it. Why not just keep your comments to yourself if you cannot answer in a kindly manner.
---Mark_V. on 11/16/11




moderator permit- thankyou! shira368 important share/yes! encourage you ..... my friend 'Mendy"(nickname) she had been losingsight both eyes! I ask prayerRoom pray for her..She can see after "Family Worldwide Cnet" prayers went up!That's a miracle! She couldn't drive or wrk.. she doing fine,moved 'n gettin' married! Dec. :)

Rhonda:

Matthew 24:24 (and similarly Mark 13:22):
"For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."

Unless, of course, you consider false Christs and false prophets to be believers.
---StrongAxe on 11/14/11


//I'm wrong? Interesting not one person can provide an instance of miracles happening through an UNBELIEVER from Holy Scripture//

so, Balaam's donkey was a believer?

i guess to be a bush to survive in the wastelands takes faith...to burn without burning up takes great faith.

i, personally, am thankful that He uses unbelievers in my life where "believers" were present, but, so full of themselves, they did not help when called upon.
---aka on 11/13/11


Rhonda, you are so wrong in your answer.
*****

I'm wrong? Interesting not one person can provide an instance of miracles happening through an UNBELIEVER from Holy Scripture

false ministers of SATAN want many to believe "miracles" happen everywhere from anything and from anyone

PER Holy Scripture even SATANS ministers can perform miracles

DISCERNING the truth of the miracle will become more important in the years ahead when the false prophet begins to perform them MANY will be deceived to believe they are miracles from GOD per Holy Scripture ...doesn't say a few

which is why so many believe the LIES of Satan today and those who knowingly and unknowingly promote Satans lies
---Rhonda on 11/12/11


Rhonda, you are so wrong in your answer. Why wouldn't God use whom He wants to use? He even uses satan to do His will. Why would an athiest doctor not be an instrument for Him? That is nonesense. God has the power and authority to use anyone or anything He wants and does every single day. If God wants to save someone, He will use whatever means to get His purpose accomplish. I sure don't know where that thinking comes from, but the god you present is not the real God of Scripture who does as He pleases in heaven and on Earth.
---Mark_V. on 11/12/11




Elena, thank you so much for your prayers. You really don't know how much I appreciate you. I am going back to Texas for a cat scan and other test Dec 5.

As I have said, sometimes God heals instantaneously and sovereignly.

Usually He works through medical means.
****

not at all ...GOD would NEVER use an atheist who REJECTS GOD as a "vessel" for HIS miracles!!

many Dr's are atheist and other non-christians FIXING people today using science NOT GOD

the big LIE medical science is from GOD seeing Christ NEVER opened someone up or served them drugs to HEAL them

pure deception believing medical science "healings" are same as spiritual healing

a TRUE HEALING miracle occurs just as Holy Scripture tells us - it is instantaneous by the one who has FAITH in Christ

Christ ONLY works with HIS Church Matt 16:18 a LITTLE flock Luke 12:32

---ELENA on 10/17/11


apparently, most think the "BIG" miracle is physical healing.
Christ and the apostles did this for identifying purposes, which deminished.
All those healed died.
The real miracle is salvation which brings eternal life.

\\Some people would call them coincidences but they are indeed miracles.

this is a real miracle. My brother got strangled on a piece of steak...to er..then surgery. They found he had a tumor in his stomach. Another real miracle. My sister went to outpatient for simple procedure. She went into cardiac arrest and needed a heart valve replacement.If she had been home and went into cardiac arrest she would be dead. Another miracle. Me....had upper respitory infection, had x ray only to find out I had cancer of the thyroid. That was in 05. Some people would call them coincidences but they are indeed miracles.
---shira4368 on 10/13/11


Miricles you say? They are all around us, every time a baby is born with their ears and toes in the right places the chances that happends is millions to one yet it happends that way almost every time. Gravity. How is that not a miricle of God. Without it the universe would be caos. As for casting out demons and healing, why not. Compared to creation they are "easy" miricles to God. LOL it is all easy to a God that spoke creation with just a word isnt it.

Grace:)
---John on 10/11/11


Yes they do. At Cool Springs church in Browntown Va last week a lady who had sever arthritis that started last year. That has caused her intense suffering everyday. It caused her to go into shock. Doctors tried a dangerous cancer treatment and it didnt work told her there was noting that could be done for her. She went to the church and was anointed with oil. A man of God prayed and she was healed. She has no more pain. She has been praising God ever since.
---matthew on 3/6/11


Of course the Apostles were vessels for Jesus (God) to work through. I think healing is more of a promise than a miracle. By His stripes we were healed. Jesus told His disciples the things I do you shall do also and even greater things. Mark 16:17 (Paraphrased). I beleive those that are His can do ALL things through Him that is our strength. In todays world having the faith to receive is a miracle in itself.

Does Jesus do miracles today? YES YES YES. My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992, she took no treatment of any kind and told the doctor she believed God for a miracle, in 1995 the doctor declared her cancer free. My brother was told he would never see his 40th birthday in 1984 they gave him 6 weeks to live, he trusted God for a miracle without any medicine or treatment. He celebrated his 64th birthday before going to Heaven. My father in law had his pancrease removed 14 years ago and is still alive and the doctors cannot explain why he lives other than to say "It is a Miracle" If Jesus does not do miracles please explain these 3 to me.

---tofurabby on 2/9/07"

If the Lord Jesus Christ is
the same yesterday, today and tomorrow, and by your own words his will was to heal then it seems logical to believe his will has not changed.
---mima on 11/13/08


Tofuraby, How pittiful we are these days according your doctrine. GOD does no longer want to reveal his Glory to us so we suffer with diseases, poverty, slavery, bondage imprissonment etc. whilst the devil is performing his false miracles and heals and provides for all that follow Him. Tofuraby, i do not believe in a cruel God. Yes we go through situations to learn how to persevere and to be strong in Christ. no God does not want us to stay in that mess. I believe that if God gave up His one and only son Jesus, he most willingly will give us all we need andpray for. Healing salvation deliverance provvisions. etc
---Andy on 11/12/08


Yes, I think all the Apostles performed miracles.

I think miracles happen today, but serve a different purpose. They are not meant to win the masses, but to touch each person individually. A mircale to me might not be as big a deal as a miracle to you.
---allen on 2/21/07


Yes miracles still happen. Jesus told us as Christians (followers of Christ) that we would and could do everything He did and greater.
---Leslie on 2/11/07


Yes, the apostles could do amazing things. As for today... If God was powerful enough to do the miracles then, he is powerful enough to do them now... The question is, is it his will to do so?

The answer is no. He did them to reveal himself when there was no other evidence. Now that we have the Bible, he no longer needs to use supernatural revelations to woo the unsaved. His will is complete as far as giving us the tools to come to know him. 1Cor.13:8-12

I know miracles happen today. My daughter with severe asthma was having a baby. They didnt expect her baby to be healthy because she lives on predisone. Her contractions had stopped, she couldnt do a c-section due to her asthma,, the baby was upside down, the doctors were even besides themselves of knowing what to do. The doctor camed back into her room an hour later, the baby had turned normally and was born perfectly healthy. The doctors first words out of his mouth was "ITS A MIRACLE!"

This is a truth that should be considered."We humanize God and put our faith in our own abilities. He is such a big God, we can believe Him for big things!"

I have a friend who is a cancer survivor that was scheduled to have surgery on Friday to remove a large tumor. Her Dr. had tests and xrays redone in preparation for the surgery a couple of days ago. Today she recieved a call from He Dr. saying the tumor had shrunk to half it's size, and though she would need to be watched she no longer needed the surgery.
We are rejoicing, God is faithful. Miracles, and healing still take place today, 2/7/07
---lynet on 2/7/07


Yes. But, it is more important that ever to discern the true miracle from the fraud or demonic. I am amazed at the number of TV evangelists that are hawking miracle spring water and prayer cloths that cure everything but your pocketbook. As a Catholic I know about miracles and those that capitalize on them, but my church has a system to verify or denounce such things - mostly denounce.
---lorra8574 on 2/7/07


We, as Christians, are to do greater miracles than Jesus performed while here on Earth. Unfortunately, most Christians believe in God, but deny his power. Our faith today is weak. Our love for others have grown cold. We are affraid that we will be ridiculed. The true miracles today are performed without compensation and without a large crowd and mostly done in private - known only between the few and God.

Amanda, "He is such a big God, we can believe Him for big things!" A big A-men to that.
---Eloy on 2/7/07


Miracles still happen today, absolutely! However, I think that the reason we don't see "big" miracles too often is that we don't ask God for them. We humanize God and put our faith in our own abilities. He is such a big God, we can believe Him for big things!
