A miracle is an act in which God works aside from his natural laws.

Five Categories of His Miracles

  • Power over nature
  • Power over the spirit world
  • Power over material things
  • Power over death

Miracles Jesus Did Not Do

  • God cannot make a rock too heavy to lift
  • God cannot lie
  • God cannot cease to exist
  • Not about what Jesus could not do !
  • But what he chose not to do !
slide6

Purpose of His Miracles

  • Not for His personal benefit
  • Not primarily of compassion
  • Did not come to earth to do miracles
  • To Prove He was the Son of God
  • To Show that His message was from God

Purpose of His Miracles

Matt.9:6 “power on earth to forgive sins”

John 9:3 “works of God should be revealed”

Mark 16:20 “confirming the word”

Heb. 2:3-4 “witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles”

Miracles Jesus Did Not Do

1

  • “And the devil said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.” Luke 4:3
  • Never worked miracles for his own benefit
  • Satan knew He was God’s Son
  • Jesus could have made the stones into bread
  • “Man does not live by bread alone”

Miracles Jesus Did Not Do

2

Pharisees and Sadducees asked “that he would show them a sign from heaven.” Matt.16:1-4

Had healed multitudes - fed the 4,000

Refused to believe in Jesus

More signs would be meaningless

Jesus did not do miracles for the hard of heart

slide10

Miracles Jesus Did Not Do

  • Did not work miracles to meet challenges
  • “Prophesy to us, Christ! Who is the one who struck you?” Matt.26:67-68
  • He was blindfolded
  • Who hit you ?
  • Would serve no useful purpose.

“You who destroy the temple and build it in three days, save Yourself! If You are the Son of God, come down from the cross.” Mt. 27:40

He was to die as a sacrifice for sins

He was about to fulfill the prophecy

“For this purpose I came to this hour” Jn.12:27

Miracles Jesus Did Not Do

5

“Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.” Matt. 13:58

Home town was Nazareth

He did heal some

But the miraculous works were limited !

slide13

Miracles Jesus Did Not Do

Why ?

Because of their unbelief

They did not have a good and honest heart

Said: “Who does he think he is?”

Had a hostile disposition

Jesus does not force himself upon anyone

slide14

Miracles Jesus Did Not Do

Matthew 13:57 “So they were offended at Him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.”

Mark 6:4 “But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house.”

slide15

Jesus worked miracles

For a reason

Not to relieve suffering

But to show He was from God

And if He was from God then His Message should be believed and obeyed.

slide16

Once the gospel was

Confirmed…

It was able to produce saving faith.

Romans 10:17 “Faith comes by hearing…”

We do not need miracles today !!

We must believe and obey the Gospel

slide17
