Will anyone else do more signs?


If you remember back to the last posting Jesus proclaimed who He was, and that the He came from the Father. After he made those claims, the leaders sought to kill Him, but the Bible said His time had not yet come. And even though the leaders were against Him and wanted Him dead, it turns out the people were beginning to see Him for what He was. In John 7:31 we read this,

And many of the people believed in Him, and said, “When the Christ comes, will He do more signs than these which this Man has done?”

So what brought them about to His side? I believe it was a combination of what He did, what He said and who He claimed to be.  Jesus demonstrated in power who He was, He spoke with authority and because of that He was able to say to the people that He and the Father were one. So, what does that mean to us? Well, if we look at scripture we begin to realize the role of the believer. In Acts we are given the Holy Spirit for POWER to complete His will of being witnesses. Simply put, we Have the same authority Christ had, because He gave it to us. We are to speak with authority, to do works of power (yes miracles) so that the world will know we come from Him. We are ALL called to the mission field (it maybe overseas, it may be your neighbourhood). We are all called to be in His will. And through the power of God we can complete it. You are called to do Miracles
