Signs and Wonders

“…God publicly endorsed Jesus of Nazareth by doing wonderful miracles, wonders, and signs through him, as you well know.” Acts 2:22b

Some Muslims are coming to Jesus Christ through amazing wonders like having dreams and visions of Him or experiencing a miracle. I once heard of a Muslim man being told in a dream to call such and such a phone number of a complete stranger who happened to be a Christian.  He did and by the end of his phone call he gave his heart to Jesus! A Somali man got bored on the internet and went to sleep. He was instructed by the Spirit of God to get up and 'google' in Nolosha Cusub(Voice of New Life)which he had never heard of. He did and found salvation in Christ. A Muslim woman rises above her fear of reading the Word of God and discovers Whom salvation is found in. The Spirit opens her eyes and gives her saving faith.  Believe me, that is a huge miracle - especially for a Muslim without having an accompanying dream or healing!

The Bible is full of documented breath taking signs and wonders. They surrounded Jesus' birth, ministry, death, resurrection and ascension to heaven. And they will surround His return at the end of the ages. It really is all very astounding. Jesus Himself is the biggest miracle, sign and wonder in all of history. He is surrounded by fanfare of the highest degree. No one and nothing else can compare with Him.

God’s signs and wonders have never ceased. He loves to give signs and produce awestruck wonder in us. Oh, to be fully alive to the supernatural work of the Spirit of God. I keep a journal of how God shows up. I believe in miracles, signs and wonders. Yes, God Almighty loves to encourage us and take our breath away.  I especially desire to see Him perform signs and wonders among the Muslims I’m trying to witness to. If it helps to confirm the truth that Jesus is Lord and Savior I am all for it! Muslims love to hear about the miracles that Isa al Masih performed. Make much of Him. Share those miraculous stories with your Muslim friend. Share also the signs and wonders and miracles God has performed in your life and don't forget that your salvation is a wonderful miracle. Above all share with them that Jesus is the biggest miracle, sign and wonder - greater than every prophet, messenger, book, dream, or healing.

Dear heavenly Father, thank You for the miracle of Jesus. What a wonder He is. Amen.
