Where would one expect most miracles to be visible, Pyongyang or Washington D.C.? Perhaps I’m talking with individuals who do not sign up for the notion of miracles in this century, at all? Would you assume with me for the minute that at the least somewhere on earth, a God-sent miracle occurs from time to time?
Then back once again to the question. Where would this miracle most likely occur? In a land where the Bible is believed and where faith generally seems to abound, or in a place where darkness prevails? Why not a Muslim country?
The solution obviously is wherever there’s faith for that miracle, and a crying out to God for it. All of us remember Capernaum, the city where the Son of God Himself could do so little because the faith level was so low.
It’s joked today that the American church must strive to obtain first to the Capernaum level. For Jesus did do a few miracles there. What can it be like in your church if merely a “few” miracles occurred? Then we will 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…” Greater than Jesus? Men have pondered this for many time. Surely he “meant” something apart from 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 is what He meant, we’ve got some believing (I started to express working) to accomplish, wouldn’t you say? Miracles and healings and signs and wonders, surely they are not in the middle of what Jesus came for, but has anyone found the Scripture that says He’ll never do these exact things again?
What 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 would happen then?Read More
