These notes accompany the sermon found here.

There Was a Miracle

  • Healing comes with the Kingdom. Isaiah 29:18; 35:5-6; Malachi 4:2; Matthew 15:30; Mark 1:34.
  • As sickness is typical of (and a result of) sin, so also physical healing is typical of spiritual healing. See Isaiah 1:6, 6:10, 53:5 with 1 Peter 2:24.  Also Genesis 2:17, 3:19; Romans 6:23; James 1:15.
  • God accompanies the teaching of Jesus and the Apostles with signs and wonders, including healing, to prove the validity of the message – that Jesus came to save sinners. See Matthew 9:1-8, 11:2-19; Mark 2:3–12; Luke 5:18–26, 7:18-23; 1 Timothy 1:15.
  • But now that we have the Word of God. We have transitioned to a time when the emphasis of the Gospel is on the Word of God, having already been proven by the initial signs and wonders.  Romans 10:13-17; Galatians 3:2, 5; Luke 16:29-31; 1 Corinthians 1:18-19; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 1 Peter 2:23-25; John 20:29, 17:20.
  • In the end, false signs and wonders will be a tool for the antichrist and his predecessors. Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Acts 8:9; Deut. 13:1–3; 18:15-22; 2 Thess. 2:9–11; Rev. 13:13-14; 16:14; 19:20.
  • However, we should always pray for healing, for all healing is from God, and all healing is miraculous. James 5:14-15.

There Was a Sermon

  • See Acts 3:11-26; Romans 15:19; 1 Cor. 2:3-5; 2 Cor. 12:12; 1 Thessalonians 1:5.

  • Peter and John were arrested. Acts 4:3
  • Many believed, and the total number of disciples came to about five thousand. Acts 4:4

Encouragements

  • Walk, and leap, and praise God.
  • Offer what you have.
