Miracles And Wonders

Mark 16: 15-18

“Go throughout the whole world and preach the gospel to all people.

Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned.

Believers will be given the power to perform miracles; they will drive out demons in my name; they will speak in strange tongues; if they pick up snakes or drink any poison, they will not be harmed; they will place their hands on sick people, and these will get well.”

Acts 4: 29, 30

“LORD, take notice of the threats they have made and allow us, your servants, to speak your message with boldness.

Reach out your hand to heal, and grant that wonders and miracles may be performed through the name of your holy Servant Jesus.”

Acts 5: 12, 15-16

Many miracles and wonders were being performed among the people by the apostles.

As a result of what the apostles were doing, sick people were carried on the streets and placed on beds and mats so that at least Peter’s shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by.

And crowds of people came in from the towns among Jerusalem, bringing those who were sick or who had evil spirits in them; and they were all healed.

Acts 8: 26-40

An angel of the LORD said to Philip, “Get ready and go south to the road that goes from Jerusalem to Gaza.”

Philip got ready and went.

An Ethiopian eunuch, who was an important official in charge of the treasury of the queen of Ethiopia, was on his way home.

He had been to Jerusalem to worship GOD and was going back home in his carriage.

As he rode along, he was reading from the book of the prophet Isaiah.

The Holy Spirit said to Philip, “Go over to that carriage and stay close to it.”

Philip ran over and heard him reading from the book of the prophet Isaiah.  He asked him, “Do you understand what you are reading?”

The official replied, “How can I understand unless someone explain it to me?”  And he invited Philip to climb up and sit in the carriage with him.

The passage of the scripture which he was reading was this:

“He was like a sheep that is taken to be slaughtered, like a lamb that makes no sound when its wool is cut off.  He did not say a word.

He was humiliated, and justice was denied Him.

No one will be able to tell about His descendants, because His life on earth has come to an end.”

The official asked Philip, tell me, of whom is the prophet saying this? Of himself or of someone else?

Then Philip began to speak, starting from this passage of scripture, he told him the Good News about Jesus.

As they traveled down the road, they came to a place where there was some water, and the official said, “Here is some water, what is to keep me from being baptized?”

The official ordered the carriage to stop, and both the official and Philip went down into the water, and Philip baptized him.

When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the LORD took Philip away.

The official did not see him again.

Philip found himself in Azotus; he went on to Caesarea, and on the way he preached the Good News in every town.

Praised the LORD.
