Praise the Lord to the Miracle Temple Family and the Family of God! I greet you in the matchless name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Our spiritual theme for the month of November is,” Miracles”. The bible first mentions the word miracle in Exodus 7:9, “When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, Shew a miracle for you: then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast it before Pharaoh, and it shall become a serpent.” I thought to myself how interesting it is that God would use a serpent as the first medium for a miracle, because it was Satan in the form of a serpent who tempted Adam and Eve. That is a whole different lesson but suffice it to say that God was up to something! The Easton’s Bible Dictionary defines a miracle as an event in the external world brought about by the immediate agency or the simple volition of God, operating without the use of means capable of being discerned by the senses, and designed to authenticate the divine commission of a religious teacher and the truth of his message (John 2:18; Matt. 12:38). It is an occurrence at once above nature and above man. It shows the intervention of a power that is not limited by the laws either of matter or of mind, a power interrupting the fixed laws which govern their movements, a supernatural power. There is more to the definition but for the sake of space in this document I will refer to the rest during our study. Miracles have been sited throughout the Old and the New Testament scriptures. In some cases miracles were performed to satisfy a need, as in with the changing of water into wine at the wedding by the Lord Jesus, His first miracle. Another such miracle was when he fed the multitude with the contents of a boy’s lunch, five thousand fed with just two small fish and five loaves of bread. The subject of miracles to the believer is a very real part of our faith in the true and living God. For the unbeliever however, miracles are explained away as mere coincidence. The difference of opinion is that unbelievers walk by sight but the believer walks by faith. If you want to know more about “Miracles”, then you can’t afford to miss any of the bible study sessions this month.
