Signs, wonder, miraculous manifestations, and the impartation of gifts of the Holy Spirit are God ways establishing and endorsing the gospel of salvation declared by Jesus and confirmed by the apostles.
Hebrews 2:4 (AMP) [Besides this evidence] it was also established and plainly endorsed by God, Who showed His approval of it by signs and wonders and various miraculous manifestations of [His] power and by imparting the gifts of the Holy Spirit [to the believers] according to His own will.
That is, the gospel without the manifestations of signs and wonders, miraculous manifestation as well as the display of the gifts of the Spirit is fake. It should accompany every proclamation of salvation. It is a seal, the proof that God endorses it with.
Mark 16:20 And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord kept working with them and confirming the message by the attesting signs and miracles that closely accompanied [it]. Amen
Therefore, don’t fight signs, yield to them, gladly expect them and celebrate them when they come. That is God confirming the ministry of Jesus to you.
1 Corinthians 2:4-5 And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.
Paul was conscious of his ministrations, they were not in mere eloquence and manipulating of words, but in demonstrating God’s matchless abilities.
God is more than willing to do for you and prove His existence to you than just filling your head with empty words. Don’t put your faith in man’s eloquence but on God’s power to perform HisWord. Always expect to see the scriptures work for you. Ask God if you need to see Him confirm the Gospel to you via a sign and He will do it because He promised to, before you ever saw a need to ask.
John 10 25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me. 38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.
John 14:11 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.
Even Jesus confirmed that the works bares witness of His authenticity. And He is the same yesterday, today and forever. So, He will do the same for you just as He did when He walked the surface of this earth.
Quit and get rid of empty words, noise without effects. If the gospel you profess is not “working” please, get rid of it and subscribe to the one confirmed of God with signs, wonders, miraculous manifestations and the impartation of the gift of the spirit.
God Bless you. I see a miracle around your dwelling, did I hear an Amen? 🙂
