SIGNS & WONDERS I – By Pastor E. A. Adeboye
Memory Verse: Isaiah 7:14:“Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”
Read: Mark 16:17-18.
Mark 16:17-18:“And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”
A sign is a supernatural occurrence through God’s intervention in the course of nature. A sign is making the impossible become possible. My God shall give you a sign that will make the impossible possible in your life in the Name of Jesus Christ. Somebody described a wonder as something that causes you to wonder. Something you see that makes you open your mouth in utter surprise. In Luke 1:26-33, the family of Joseph the Carpenter was given a sign that had never occurred since the creation of the world. Joseph’s marriage and family entered the divine record of God’s supernatural acts. What happened to Mary – a virgin who conceived, is beyond the explanation of science. The experience goes beyond the realm of reasoning. The sign God gave that family cannot be contended or refuted in any argument. It was a sign that had symbolic meaning for Israel and the whole world at large.
In Mark 16:17-18, our Lord Jesus Christ assures every believer of signs and wonders. For many people in the world today, it is still unbelievable that there are evil spirits that Satan has assigned to torment mankind, although the manifestations are undeniable. Psychologists give sundry names to all sorts of abnormal behaviours. Most of them deny that these abnormal behaviours are induced demonically. Thanks be to God through our Lord Jesus Christ who came not only to expose demonic activities but to subdue them on our behalf. Jesus in John 10:10 said:
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
The Holy Spirit speaking through Apostle John corroborates this in 1 John 3:8b:
“For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.”
In your family, the Lord is set to give you a sign that no medical or natural science can explain. Get yourself ready for a sign from God that will confuse the reasoning of men. With God, your family can become a sign of God’s goodness for the whole world to see. Only one sign from God can silence every argument against your family. You will experience supernatural occurrences this season in Jesus’ Name. All you need is to believe, and you will see the glory of God.
- I decree complete deliverance from all satanic oppressions in my life and my entire family. I claim total healing for every member of my family in Jesus’ Name.
