On this post Christian age more and more, people are convinced that miracles are done and had passed away since the death of the last apostle and miracles were buried with them.
But in the time of Christ miracles took place left and right everywhere were Christ is; the lame are walking, the blind see, the deaf can hear, lepers are cleansed and to the poor the Gospel is preached.
Never in the history of Christianity, a generation experienced such glorious event in seeing this with their naked eyes. Today churches are though more on prosperity, discipleship, salvation and church growth the bigger the church the greater the anointing is with it. We measure success by our own standard and forget the ways and the standard of God. Please don't get me wrong with these teachings.
Without the power of miracle there would be no resurrection, victory over the power of dankness and healing. Churches are handicapped of the power to overcome and to subdue evil and darkness. Most common word within Christian world is the word Mega church, instant fixed solution for every problems and convenience. Most refuses to hear teachings on how to overcome hardships, sufferings and sacrifices. (If you are a clergy or a Pastor teaching this kind of confrontational approach, I tell you you'll get the least numbers in your congregation or even not see them next Sunday and accused you that your message are offending. If you are doing wrong and practicing evil, correction will really be offending, but it will be good for you if you listen!) This was the state of mind of those people during the time of Noah before the flood, their refusal to hear and listen, they are selective of only what they want to hear and do.
If miracles are gone then God is dead and gone. Everything will come to an end since God Is the author of life. But how come that we seldom see these today. The removal of Godly and sounds teaching weakens Churches and most are driven on relying on the strength of the flesh instead of depending on the power of the Holy Spirit. The Evil one who successfully working through the years in making believed that Man is GOD. You will be like God knowing good and evil. But man can’t handle it alone because he is not GOD and he needed God, then why? He was not design to take evil within himself because man was created for good after the image and likeness of God alone!
The missing link to see a miracle is the miracle itself, it’s God!
The removal of prayers, the Ten Commandments and the bible from schools.
These resulted to increase in numbers of teenage pregnancies, crime rates escalates, suicides, drugs related problems, shootings and killings within the parameters of the schools, parents are neglectful of their responsibilities, busy with other things, no time to teach and guide their children, the education of their children are damped on the teachers and schools.
The institution intended to be a place for learning, especially for young minds has become a place that breeds rebellion, disobedience and death.
It's high time for the church to address this concern. As a church let us not be passive about it. Let us together rebuild the walls that was broken.
Please hand me another brick!
We all know what prayers can do!
|Lord, hear our prayers!|
