• Humans do not perform miracles. That is entirely in the hands of God.
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      That's why God left humans, in particular Jesus' disciples with the Holy Spirit to perform miracles. John 14:12-13 "Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in Me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. 13 Whatever you ask in My name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son." John 16:7 "Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send Him to you."
  • It's a fine point, but JSHM is correct. So, in answer to your question: yes, I **believe** that's part of it. I don't believe that's ALL of it. That is: faith alone is not sufficient. "Even the demons believe - and shudder."
  • In the book of Romans, the apostle Paul shared the key to releasing the spiritual power received from God at the time of the new birth. It is "renewing one's mind," ( which is holding the Word in mind and acting accordingly. Romans 12:2 "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." As Paul lived the Word he was teaching, renewing his mind, he preached and taught boldly and evidenced the power of the holy spirit in a remarkable way. Acts 19:10,11 “… so that all they which dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus… And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul.” Later, in a letter written to the faithful believers in this, the age of grace, Paul wrote: Philippians 4:9 “Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.” As we faithfully renew our minds to the Word of God, we are living as God intends and will see the power of the holy spirit in our lives, as Paul did. Philippians 2:16 “Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.”
  • In having faith as small as a mustard seed: humans will have to move mountains first in order to perform miracles through the Holy Spirit. It sounds impossible to the faithless, but that's the whole point why Jesus stated in the beginning of Matthew 17:20, "Because of your unbelief" - meaning, humans can get quickly overwhelmed by huge obstacles.
  • some say yes ..even bible says if you have enough faith as a mustard seed you can move a mountain ...............trouble is soon as faith fades a wee bit , thats ya prayer right out the it probably will never happen
