Miracles are fascinating, and we want to be surrounded by miracles so much so that we tell ourselves that the birth of babies are miracles. And that is not true. However, that does not negate the fact that miracles do happen and that we do want to experience the witnessing of them or to be the recipient of a miracle. Well, in my short life I have only witnessed one miracle myself up close and personal and it sealed my entire belief in healing and miracles and no person or thing can change my mind. Because I was the first recipient JESUS used to demonstrate HIS healing on but I was not the one HE used to show me HIS miracle on. And it also taught me the difference between being healed and a miracle.  When I jumped into the study of healings and miracles by JESUS and then just in general, I found that there are Seventeen recorded miracles listed in the Bible. So, now the Word of GOD tells me that HE is the same yesterday, today and forever. HE did miracles then, HE will and does miracles today and will continue to do miracles. To recognize a miracle is to first know what a miracle is and that it is a wonder. It defies the laws of nature and can be only done by the presence of the Almighty GOD, HIMself.

The LORD GOD took a simple stick that was used by Aaron as his rod and made it miraculous. This miraculous rod was used at Pharaoh’s court when it became a serpent and swallowed up the rods of the magicians. The LORD told Moses to tell Aaron to take his rod and stretch out his hand over the waters that they may become blood. The LORD said to Moses tell Aaron to stretch out his hand with his rod over the waters to cause the frogs to come up on the land. The LORD told Moses to tell Aaron to stretch out his rod, strike the ground so that it will become lice. Moses had a rod as well and though his rod is not spoken of with much fame as his brothers, GOD used the rod of Moses to divide the Red Sea, he was told to lift up his rod and stretch out his hand over that sea so that they would be able to walk through on dry land.

To help soothe the rebellion that was going on in the camp the LORD GOD gave Moses instructions regarding twelve rods and to place the names on them which were the head of those tribes and these twelve rods were placed in the tabernacle overnight. Moses went into the tabernacle of witness, and behold, the rod of Aaron, of the house of Levi, had sprouted and put forth buds, had produced blossoms and yielded ripe almonds. Another miracle that shut the mouths of the eleven tribes. Even in disobedience of anger, a miracle was done, Moses did not follow through on the instructions given to him and he did it his way by hitting the rock with his rod and water came from the rock which is a miracle.

Then we have Elijah who took his mantle/cloke hit the water, it split into and he and Elisha crossed over on dry ground. Elijah was suddenly taken in a chariot of fire with horses of fire which separated the two of them and by a whirlwind, Elijah was up in heaven. Elisha was given a double portion of the spirit that was on Elijah and it was given to him by the LORD GOD and just as his mentor had done he too took the mantle/cloke hit the water and it divided and he crossed over on dry ground. Elisha performed other miracles also by the hand of the LORD GOD, the source of bad water and the cause of barren land was healed by throwing salt into the water.

Now we have JESUS the very presence of the LORD GOD here with us on earth wrapped in the flesh for us to see, smell, taste, hear and touch all with our natural senses. That’s a miracle. He demonstrated miracles while here on earth.

Miracles are for the purpose to glorify the living CHRIST. And the living GOD will give HIS gift to whomever HE desires to have it. And though it is true that miracles can be counterfeited by satan to fool the people. The essence that will be missing is forgiveness, compassion, and love. This is what is produced in the brethren of the body of CHRIST only, the true believer, not the part-time Christian but the all in CHRISTian. Just because you were used in an activity or are used in that activity does not mean you have a gift for it. And there are various ministries however it does not mean that you are gifted from the living GOD to be in that ministry. The living GOD has a variety of gifts and they come from the Holy Spirit. So regardless of the activity or ministry if you are working it, do so entirely to the LORD but know if you are gifted or not. For example, just because you had a vision once or twice about something and it came to pass does not make you a prophet. Study the prophet in the bible if you don’t line up with the bible sit down. Same goes for a pastor just because you are outgoing, a good orator does not make you a shepherd. If you don’t line up with what the bible relates a shepherd to be sit down. The Holy Spirit profits everyone who desires to have Him. And there are many other miracles that I have not included just from the Old Testament. This bible is a fascinating read people just need to get their spirit right through JESUS CHRIST and get into the Word of GOD so they will be able to enjoy what the living GOD has to show and tell us.

Again, as I stated in the beginning miracles are fascinating and miracles do happen today and we need to look for them. And the best place to find them must be within the church not once a week or during events but daily.
