Signs and wonders from Abraham Kutty PG's blog

Beware!    Beware!    Beware!

Some new generation guys preaching about signs and wonders and people running after miracles. However, what Jesus says about the subject?

Matthew  12:39  But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:   

Luke  11:29  And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.

All Apostles preach end with baptism in the name of Jesus Christ. 

On the day of Pentecost by Peter's preaching, 3000 souls get baptised in the name of Jesus Christ.

When Philip preached at Samaria, people believed in Jesus and they get baptised in the name of Jesus Christ .

Philip talked Eunuch of Ethiopia,  who was reading The book of Isiah and based on his reading, Philip explained to him about Jesus and when they saw a pool, both went down to the water and Philip baptised him in the name of Jesus Christ. 

Immediately after baptism,  Philip disappeared. Means, a gospel preaching will end with baptism in the name of Jesus Christ.

Again we see, Peter in the home of Cornelius.  At the end of preaching,  he and his households took baptism in the name of Lord Jesus Christ. 

Now take the case of Paul. He visited Ephesus and found some Disciples of John the Baptist.  He preached to the and said to them, believe in Jesus and they get baptised in Jesus name.

Paul baptized Jailer and his family in the night hours.

Acts  16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.  

16:33 And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.

See, the importance of baptism. Giving baptism in the night hours itself. By taking baptism only in the name of Lord Jesus Christ,  a soul is saved, God and angels rejoice, not seeing signs and wonders.

By miracles and wonders, no soul will be saved.

Ofcouse,  miracles and wonders do by God, because, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Miracles did yesterday, He is doing today and it will continue till Jesus' 2nd coming. No doubt on that.

This is a gift of God. Read following: 

1 Corinthians  12:28  And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.   

1 Corinthians  12:29  Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?

I hope you understood.

So, those who are having the gifts of miracles and healing not judge others,  they are useless.

Please do not boast and make a trumpet and flatter on doing miracles and signs. It is a part of ministry. God will use His Servants at the appropriate time for doing this ministry. 

Therefore, those who have the gift,  don't lift their heart, not heady mind like Lucifer did. If so, Immediately you can expect a steep fall.

However, winning souls to the Kongdom of God is very important, by giving baptism in the name of Lord Jesus Christ, like Apostles did.

Read following: 

Matthew  24:24  For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.   

Revelation  13:13  And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

See !

Note this also.

Matthew  7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  

7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Signs and wonders God will do, and it never stopped, but there is no need of running after signs and wonders, crazily.

John  6:26 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.

So, please do not run after signs and wonders.  You will land in deep pit.

May God bless you!
