Apostles and signs, wonders and miracles:

Posted: August 19, 2015 in Advancing The Kingdom, Faith and God's Abilities, Foundation on Apostle/ Apostolic, Testimonies (Past & Present)

While the Apostle Paul said, “I laid a foundation as a wise Master Builder (Divine Wisdom)”, he also said, “My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power”. (1Cor 2:4-5)

Jesus did countless of signs, wonders and miracles while he was on this earth, so does all the Apostles, except for the people with the gift of healings and miracles. The new testament signs, wonders and miracles were all done by the Apostles. God did extraordinary miracles through the Apostles.

The Apostle Paul said in 2 Cor 12:12 – “The signs of a true apostle – signs, wonders, and miracles”.

By the grace of God, during the last 10yrs (2005 – 2015), God has also showed me several signs, wonders and miracles – Stomach pain healed, back pain healed, a person who almost died and can’t eat food, water, medicine or anything else after prayer could have her medicines, leg pain healed, ankle pain healed, my wife eye pain healed in South India, another lady who can’t open her eyes in the sun and has gone to many Doctors and could not be healed feel a burning in her eyes and was instantly healed, high temperature fever instantly healed, nose problem healed, deaf ear healed, continual nose bleeding problems healed, financial miracle, electrifying touch of God, intervention of angels, and several different other types of signs, wonders and miracles in training centre and some churches, usually in Mizoram, West Bengal, and Sikkim in Northeast India.

One of the most notable thing and amazing to me was in 2006, when my wife and I went to pray in a forest. We prayed for the rain to stop, and we prayed when it would rain again, and the rain stop exactly as we prayed and rain again exactly as we prayed, it happened around 3 times on that day.

Even though I have not seen many signs, wonders and miracles in my life, I am glad to see several of them, because that’s where the foundation of “Faith” is build. Even though the main purpose of the Apostolic is not signs, wonders and miracles, but signs, wonders and miracles follow the Apostles, and the Apostle’s 3 main gifts are wisdom, faith and leadership, and Advancing the Kingdom of God is the main purpose and heart of the Apostle. And Signs, wonders and miracles are the foundation of “Faith”, even though the Apostle Paul said, “I laid a foundation as a wise master builder (divine wisdom)”, he also said, “My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power”.

Signs

JESUS DID MANY THINGS:

It was amazing to know that “Voice of the apostles” conference 2014 were expecting over 2,000 miraculous healings during that few days of conference. And people like Heidi Baker, besides all the extraordinary miracles they had seen, they also had seen countless of people being raised from the dead in their works for the Lord.
Can you believe that the apostle John wrote in John 21:25 that Jesus did many things as well. If every one of them were written down the whole world would have no books for it, it might be like the conference held in Singapore in 2014 by some ministries where there were over 1000 miraculous healings during 3 days, we can conclude that while Jesus was on this earth He did many works and countless of extraordinary miracles where the books of those days would not contain.

THE APOSTLE PAUL: God did extraordinary miracles through Paul. So that handkerchiefs or aprons were even carried from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out. (Acts 19:11- 12)

THE APOSTLE PETER: People brought the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and mats so that at least Peter’s shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by. Crowds gathered also from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing their sick and those tormented by impure spirits, and all of them were healed. (Acts 5:15-16)

THE APOSTLES: The apostles performed many signs and wonders among the people. (Acts 5:12)
