Only God can work miracles in people’s lives. MIR-A-CLE n. 1. An event or action that apparently contradicts known scientific laws and is hence thought to be due to supernatural causes, esp. to an act of God. 32 Shall Miracles Cease? 2. A remarkable event or thing; marvel. 3. A wonderful example; a miracle of tact. ) God performs miracles through people. With our permission, God uses our bodies as the channels through which miracles flow. But do not be deceived, God and only God works the miracle.
And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18, emphasis added). The very nature of the Rapture or the catching away of the saints is miraculous. The Bible declares that dead people will rise up and be caught up to meet Christ in the air. According to the laws of gravity and of death and life, this cannot be possible.
The very idea of a resurrection is miraculous in every way. I believe that God desires that we now get comfortable and accustomed to the miraculous. He wants us to become accustomed to seeing the dead raised, believing that people empowered by God can literally walk on water, and that those who are terminally ill will be completely healed by Christ’s power. It is this atmosphere of expectancy that will accommodate and welcome the Lord when He returns to meet His Bride. Expect miracles to become a reality in your life.
