“Even Judas did miracles, and as far as we know he never truly believed in Jesus.” – Brook Potter

God really wants his children to grow up and mature in the things of the Spirit. Yet so few understand the Grace of God and still mix in old covenant thinking with their teaching. Many believers think that Sign, Wonders and Miracles are a testimony that a person is accepted or approved by God. Instead of seeing the manifestation as a revelation of Christ and his Goodness, many think it is a reward for diligent fasting, prayer and holiness in a person’s life.

The finished work of Jesus Christ is vast. From the Garden to the ascension, each part is important in understanding the finished work and the heart of God towards Humanity. A person can have great revelation in one area, such as the whipping post, and not fully understand the others. That person, while through faith in the whipping post of Christ, may be able to perform great healing miracles, they may still stumble in their understanding of the Cross and other areas of Grace. My point is that signs and wonders are not indicators to mean the preacher is right, special or even saved (Matthew 7:23).

Mark 16:20  And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen

The Lord was performing signs to confirm the Word (Jesus), not to affirm the preacher. Without maturity many believers will seek out miracle people and hang on every word they say, thinking that everything they teach must be true. I say all of this to make the point that it is all about Jesus and our union with Him. We want people to be healed so that Jesus can get all that he deserves for the stripes on his back. But we want believers to not get prideful about signs and wonders. All manifestations of the Spirit are an expression of God’s Grace according to the Finished Work of Christ, but they are no substitute for knowing Him personally.

Brook Potter, a native of the Caribbean nation of Trinidad and Tobago, has been a minister of the Finished Work of the Cross, including the ministry to heal the sick since 2009.
