Signs and Gifts

Day 17 (23 August 2018, Thursday)

Hebrews 2:4 while God also bore witness by signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.

The original word for miracle is “sign”, which also means “target”.  Miracles followed Jesus everywhere He went to serve and preach the message of repentance while He was on earth.  Other than supernatural miracles, spiritual gifts include faith, healing and deliverance, casting out of demons, prophetic revelation, words of wisdom and words of knowledge, signs and wonders and many various manifestations of powers.  All these gifts are apportioned by the Spirit as He wills.  It is through the supernatural miracles that God witnesses to all who hear so that they shall know that His might and His powers are among us.

As the disciples of the Lord Jesus this day, we receive the gifts of the Spirit when we receive the Holy Spirit.  Are we not supposed to perform signs and wonders as what Jesus had done on earth?  Our Father longs to see us exercising our faith and our gifts in performing miracles on earth, so as to testify the reality of the salvation of the Kingdom and the Gospel preached.

It is God’s will that we shall not doubt but believe as we perform signs and wonders and exercise all the miraculous gifts of God.  What we are to do now is to speak into being the miracles of God, so that all who see and hear shall witness the sign of God – that our God is a God of miracles!

Against the Economic Oppression or Deprivation

Isaiah 5:8, 16 – 17 Woe to those who join house to house, who add field to field, until there is no more room, and you are made to dwell alone in the midst of the land.  …But the LORD of hosts is exalted in justice, and the Holy God shows himself holy in righteousness.  Then shall the lambs graze as in their pasture, and nomads shall eat among the ruins of the rich.

Acknowledgement of God’s Good Gift for us

Job 12:7 – 10 But ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens and they will tell you, or the bushes of the earth and they will teach you, and the fish of the sea will declare to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind.
