Are The Miracles of Jesus Still Believable
There can be no doubt that Jesus preformed many miracles while on earth. Nicodemus said to Jesus, “We know that you are a teacher come from God. No man can do the miracles you do except God be with him.” (John 3:2) Our belief that Jesus is God’s Son could stand alone upon his miracles. “And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples; which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.” (John 20:30-31) Yes! We now have the perfect law of liberty in writing. (James 1:25; 2:12) His works; miracles; prove his claim to be the sole Son of God. (John 10:38) His miracles were real; our decision to believe is clear! If a person will not be swayed by what the Bible; inspired by the Holy Spirit says; neither would he be convinced if one should rise from the dead. (Luke 16:19-31)
Some refused to believe in Jesus because they had closed minds; dull ears; and hardened hearts. (John 12:37-40) Even so; they could not deny his miracles. They witnessed Jesus raising the dead, feeding the multitudes, casting out demons, healing the sick, and walking on water. They could not deny what they witnessed; but still; they would not accept that Jesus is the sole son of God.
When we consider the credibility of the apostle’s witness to Christ’s miracles; and their testimony of those signs; we are without doubt. The apostles believed what they saw! They believed so strongly that they gave up their professions and normal ways of life to follow Jesus to the end of his ministry. They were willing to travel all over the world telling the story of Jesus. It is a fact of history that except for Judas; who betrayed him; not a one of the apostles ever recanted his commitment to Christ’s cause.
From the day they received power; by the baptism of the Holy Spirit; until the day of their death the apostles proclaimed; “This Jesus God has raised up, of which we are all witnesses. Therefore being exalted to the right hand of God …” (Acts 2:32-33)
God gave us a new hope because Jesus Christ rose from the dead; now we hope for the blessings God has for his children; which are kept in heaven. (Rom 8:11; 1 Pet 1:3-4) Don’t you want to go there?
