Why Miracles Happen? – Part 3

17.  IT’S THE GOSPEL

Miracles happen because of the good news.

(Romans 1:16) For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.

What is the Gospel?  (Romans 15:19) (Mark 16:19)

18.  FRIENDSHIP WITH GOD

There is a wonderful connection between intimate friendship with God and working miracles today.  (John 15:15-16)

19.  CURSE OF THE LAW

God also heals today because Christ redeems from the curse of the law.  (Galatians 3:13-14)

20.  DESPERATION

There is something powerful about our desperation which releases miracles in the church today.  (Mark 10:46-48)   (Mark 5:25-34)

(Matthew 15:27)  “Yes it is, Lord,” she said. “Even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.”

21.  TO DESTROY THE DEVIL’S WORK

God does miracles to destroy the devil’s work. (Acts 10:38)  how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.        (Matthew 9:35)  (1 John 3:8)
