In the early church, God gave the apostles the ability to perform signs, wonders, and miracles to authenticate the message they spoke about the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This was a transitional time in church history before the full cannon of Scripture was in place (Hebrews 2:3-4).
During His earthly ministry, Jesus warned about the generation that always seeks a sign, calling it wicked and adulterous. “No sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah” (Matthew 12:39), a reference to His future resurrection.
In some, the supernatural works of God produce a greater confidence in the word of God, demonstrate the unlimited power of God, and astonish the people of God. But will it yield faith in you?
