The Miracles of Christ, Part 2.
Sunday, January 18, 2009
“Take now your son, your only son, whom you love, Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah; and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I will tell you”
DEU 3:26 But the Lord was angry with me on your account, and would not listen to me; and the Lord said to me, “Enough! Speak to Me no more of this matter.”
For the Father would allow the Son to be struck once, and only once.
After that…. all that was required was to speak to the Rock.
COL 1:16-17, “For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities–all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.”
A miracle is an unusual and significant event which requires the working of a supernatural force and is performed for a particular purpose.
1CO 1:22 For indeed Jews ask for signs and Greeks search for wisdom;
We look at the miracles to determine what truths they teach and then determine how the truths apply to us. Then of course we look to apply those principles.
Turning the Water into Wine JOH 2:1-11
JOH 1:3 “All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.”
No longer were the Jews to be cleansed by the water in the pots, but now they could be cleansed by believing upon the Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ and His work upon the Cross.
Healing of the Man at Bethesda. JOH 5:1-15
“the more complex a problem seems, look first towards the simplest solution”
Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.
Perception equals a persons Reality, but not necessarily the Truth.
Tradition when it is manifested by lots of rituals usually takes away freedom.
The more ritualism in a religion, the farther away from freedom that religion will be.
As servants of the Lord we are certainly not exempt from the storms of life. But we must remember that God has power even over nature and our circumstances.
