Miracles of Jesus Christ........And the significance of some of them!

The miracles of Jesus Christ were uncommon in most cases, touching  lives, restoring destinies and hopes for many and evidencing that God is alive and He loves His people. God created the pool of Bethsaida to heal and restore many sick people back to life, many years before the birth of Jesus Christ.

Many of His miracles were documented for us to see today and I make bold to say that many of those miracles may never be repeated again by any man of God, except when the Almighty God desires to make a point to this dying generation of pleasure seekers.

These accounts represent only a small number of the multitudes of people who were made whole by our Savior. The closing verse of John's Gospel explains thus  "Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written." - John 21:25.

None of the miracles of Jesus were performed for the sake of it or amusement, or for show. Each was accompanied by a message and met a serious human need begging for attention.  At the same time, many of the miracles announced Jesus to the World, His ministry and purpose, confirming Christ's identity and authority as the Son of God. 

Miracles performed to glorify God
Few times, Jesus refused to perform miracles because they did not meet His criteria of glorifying God or meeting the serious need of the people.  Remember a time when the pharisees came to him seeking of Him a sign from heaven, tempting Him.  Jesus sighed deeply in his spirit and...wondered why this generation seek after a sign, but here His response - Verily, I say unto you, there shall no sign be given unto this generation. Mark 8:11-12.

Also, when Herod saw Jesus, he was very glad, for he had long desired to see him, because he had heard about him, and he was hoping to see some sign done by him. So he questioned him at some length, but he made no answer - Luke 23:8–9

The Miracles are itemized here to remind you of the loving kindness of our Lord and Saviour.  Jesus never said No to anyone that needed His help.  He never said No to the sick, oppressed and the rejected, instead He made a call to all that have laboured under any yoke of sickness, oppression and chains of the devil to come to Him for socour - He says He will give you rest.

If you believe, you receive
The sick, oppressed and rejected have a healer, deliverer and comforter in Jesus Christ and those who have faith is sure to have Jesus come to their aid anytime they call on Him.  Remember that faith is your connection, the exercise of which brings blessing to us and pleasing to God.  If you believe, confess and act on God's words, you bring Christ to the scene and the mountain standing before you is moved and the glory goes to God Almighty.  But if you refuse to use your faith, the mountain (Problem) facing you may never move.

When Jesus turned water into wine at the wedding feast at Cana, he performed his first "miraculous sign," as the Gospel writer, John, called it. This miracle, showing Jesus' supernatural control over physical elements like water, revealed his glory as the Son of God and marked the beginning of his public ministry.

Some of Jesus' most astonishing miracles included raising people from the dead, restoring sight to the blind, casting out demons, healing the sick, and walking on water. All of Christ's miracles provided dramatic and clear evidence that he is the Son of God, validating his claim to the world.

These supernatural acts of love and power drew people to Jesus, revealed his divine nature, opened the peoples hearts to the message of salvation, and caused many to glorify God.

Jesus Has Power  
If you know Jesus deeper, you will put your trust in Him. If you know the power of Jesus, nothing will ever terrify you. He has power over the earth and heaven, behold, all power is given to Him over:

Over Nature: - He has power over the forces of nature. In Luke  8:23-25, he rebuked the wind and the raging waters, and the storm subsided, and all was calm. "where is your, faith?" he asked His disciples. In fear and amazement they asked one another. "Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him." (Luke 8:23-25) 

Supernatural: - He had power over the supernatural. The people were amazed at his teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority. Just then a man in their synagogue who was possessed by an evil spirit cried out. "What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are - the Holy One of God!" "Be quiet!" said Jesus sternly. "Come out of him!.. The evil spirit shook the man violently and came out of him with a shriek. The people were all so amazed that they asked each other. "What is this? A new teaching - and with authority: He even gives orders to evil spirits and they obey." (Mark 1:22-27) 

Over Disease: - He had power over disease. "Simon's mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they told Jesus about her, so he went to her, took her hand and helped her up. The fever left her and she began to wait on them. That evening after sunset, the people brought to Jesus all the sick and demon-possessed. The whole town gathered at the door, and Jesus healed many who had various diseases." (Mark 1: 30-34) 

Over Death: - He had power over death. "Jesus' friend Lazarus had died, but Jesus called him out of the grave. Jesus called in a loud voice. "Lazarus, come out:" The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face. Jesus said, "Take off the grave clothes and let him go." (John 11: 43-44)

What  Jesus said about Himself:  

He is the Messiah.
 "The high priest asked him. "Are you the Christ the Son of the Blessed One?" "I am" said Jesus. "And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven" (Mark 14:61-62).   

He is the way to God. "Jesus answered. "I am the way and truth and the life. No one comes to the father except through me." (John 14:6) 

He is God.
 "I and the Father are one" (John 10:30). "Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, 'Show us the Farther'? Don't you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father living in me, who is doing his work. Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me." (John 14:9-11) 

He is the light in our darkness
. "I am the light of the world, whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." (John 8: 12) 

He satisfies.
 Jesus declared. "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty" (John 6:35). "My purpose is to give life in all its fullness." (John 10: 10) 

He forgives sins. "Some men brought to him a paralytic lying on a mat. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Take heart, son: your sins are forgiven." At this, some of the teachers of the law said to themselves, "This fellow is blaspheming!" Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said. "Why do you entertain evil thoughts in your hearts? Which is easier: to say your sins are forgiven, ' or to say, get up and walk'? But so that you may know that the Son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins. Then he (Jesus) said to the paralytic. "Get up, take your mat and go home." And the man got up and went home.  When the crowd saw this, they were filled with awe: and they praised God, who had given such authority to men." (Matthew 9:2-8) 

Jesus changed the Lives of Others

He was born for this purpose, for the bible says the blood of goat and sheep cannot wash away sin, only the perfect and righteous blood of Jesus can. He was born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. I ask you to receive HIM today and stay true to Him.

The good news is that as many as received Him, to them gave He the power to become children of God, to those who believe in His name. Saul encountered the Light on his way to Damascus and fell to the ground, and by the time he stood up, he could not see for the glory of the Light was much - Acts 22:11

And from that moment, Saul became Paul the disciple and Apostle. The Lord gave him the power to be numbered among the saints and to fulfill his ministry in Christ as we know it today.
