Miracles Are for Today- To You and Through You

Acts 2:17-21
Acts 1:8
John 14:11-14

In the last days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people.(the anointing) In those days I will pour out my Spirit on those who are serving me

But YOU will receive power (the anointing) when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves.  I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.  And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father.  You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it

Joel 2
Acts 2

In the last days I will pour out my spirit (Anointing)

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit

The Word says we are not to be ignorant (uniformed) of the enemy’s tactics


We are to be aware of the provision of the Holy Spirit which He has given

1 Cor 12:1 I want you to understand about the special abilities the Spirit gives us.

We saw

                    The 3 Categories of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit                                                                                                                                       1Cor,12:7-10

  • To Know
  • To Speak
  • To Act


As we continue our study of Operating in the Gifts of the Holy Spirit I want to look at each of these categories

  • Revelation Gifts -To Know
  • Inspiration Gifts- To Speak
  • Power Gifts- To Act

I want to continue our focus on the with POWER GIFTS:

  • Faith
  • Healing
  • Miracles

You’ve heard me say “Jesus didn’t come onto the scene in His ministry teaching He began by performing miracles”

Jesus passed on this part of His ministry to the Church through the Holy Spirit

And it’s called the “Gift of Miracles.”

This Gift is so important to flow through the Church for the next move of God.

I love teaching on this because I’ve seen countless miracles and I want you to know how to receive and release them.

Let’s look at this fascinating Gift that is available for us and your ministry.

They are essential to accomplishing your destiny.

They are to be requested and  expected both in your life and through your life.

Miracles will be the results of your partnering with God to establish His Kingdom on earth.

Miracle (definition)

  • An unexplainable event that appears to by pass the laws of nature and so is held to be supernatural in origin or an act of God
  • an occurrence above nature and man.
  • The suspension or violation of the laws of nature
  • A sign and wonder

We must believe that God will demonstrate His power in the situations we are believing Him for

Let’s set the stage for:

How to be in the place where MIRACLES HAPPEN

Turn to someone and say

“It’s all about the spiritual”

When we bind the involvement of the enemy miracles are free to happen.

Matt 16:19  I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind (forbid)

on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose (permit) on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

Luke 10:19 I have given you authority…to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.

Hebrews 2:4 
Mark 10:27
Matthew 6:33
And God confirms His Word by giving signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit.

All things are possible with God.”

Let God’s desires be your main focus in life. Then all your needs will be taken care of by His miraculous provision

People ask 

Do miracles still happen?

  • Do miracles come  from faith or fantasy?
  • Are past  miracles just superstations?
  • Are miracles just “quirks” of nature?
  • Are miracles just for “special people”?
  • Can we ask for miracles in our life?

People exclude themselves  from miracles

  • Unrealistic (childish, immature)
  • Feel unworthy
  • Lack of faith
  • Past let downs (afraid to hope)
  • Loss of hope (gave up)
  • Loss of relationship with the Lord
  • Incorrect understanding of God ways


  • “There’s no solution”
  • “I don’t see how this could happen”
  • “It’s impossible”
  • “It will never work”
  • “Things are too bad”
  • “This is beyond fixing”
  • “We might as well quit”

Word says..

Heb 13: 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever

John 14:12 I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

Do you need a Miracle?

Do you know someone who needs a miracle?

There is a way and a position we must take to be in a place to receive/release miracles.

We must believe that God not only can… …

Do Miracles (able) & Does Miracles


Will Do Miracles

In order to believe God …


 you have to believe  God ….

TO you


  • God’s desire

Luke 12:32   “So don’t be afraid, little flock. For it gives your Father great happiness to give you the Kingdom. .

Matt 7:11 If you, then, though you are  sinful, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!


  • Our request

Matt 7:7-8  “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.


  • Our Believing

Matt 21:22 If you believe , you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.“

  • Miracles

The most important ingredient for Miracles

They Require Faith to be Released

Important facts about miracles to you and through you

  • God uses our life challenges to release His miracles




Things beyond our control

God has a miracle for every challenge

Sometimes it supernatural

Sometimes it’s natural

No challenge to cause us to fail

  • God has a part for you to play in the miracle process

You’re involved

Miracles depend upon our response to God

That place of communion with God led by the Holy Spirit

that results in a confidence of knowing that there are no barriers, no limitations or impossibilities in God’s

purpose and plans for my life

A place of knowing that “my God will supply all my needs and the challenges I face are just the means through which His provision will unfold”.

“a knowing that you know”

I want to look at

How to stay/minister from the “miracle zone”

  • Think victoriously  (spirit-not soul)

Not just positively

No doubt allowed

Temptation to give in

Rom 12:2 be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what Gods will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will.

1 Cor 2:16 But we have the mind of Christ.

Prov. 23:7 for is a man thinks in his heart, so is he.

Matt 21:21-22 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”

Matt 19:26 With God all things are possible.” Look for  God’s doorway in the midst of the challenge What is it you would have me learn-at the beginning

  • Look for God’s Doorway in the midst of the challenge

Miracles unfold

1 Cor 10:13

No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.

Ps 37:23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, And He delights in his way.

Ps 143:8 Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.

Ps 138:7-8 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out right hand you save me. The LORD will fulfill

[his purpose] for me;your love, O LORD, endures forever–


  • Don’t let circumstances rob your faith

Bad news


No way out

“but God”

Rom 8:14 those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God

2 Cor 5:7 We live by faith, not by sight.

Josh 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified by what you see; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go
