The Phasing in of Miracles

Where would one expect most miracles to be visible, Pyongyang or Washington D.C.? Perhaps I am speaking to people who do not subscribe to the idea of miracles in this century, at all? Can you assume with me for the moment that at least somewhere on the planet, a God-sent miracle occurs from time to time?

Then back to the question a course in miracles. Where would this miracle most likely occur? In a land where the Bible is believed and where faith seems to abound, or in a place where darkness prevails? Maybe a Muslim country?

The answer of course is wherever there is faith for that miracle, and a crying out to God for it a course in miracles free. We all remember Capernaum, the city where the Son of God Himself could do so little because the faith level was so low.

It is joked today that the American church needs to strive to get first to the Capernaum level. For Jesus did do a few miracles there. What would it be like in your church if just a “few” miracles occurred? Then we could 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…” Greater than Jesus? Men have pondered this for some time. Surely he “meant” something other than what He said. He meant salvation. Surely the forgiveness of sins is better than 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 say working) to do, wouldn’t you say? Miracles and healings and signs and wonders, surely they are not at the heart of what Jesus came for, but has anyone found the Scripture that says He’ll never do these things again?
