'God confirmed the message by giving signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit' (Hebrews 2:4)

Throughout the Bible God worked many miracles, and I've got good news for you, miracles did not stop 2000 years ago, the Jesus of the Bible is alive with all power and authority, and we still see miracles when we pray in His Name. These miracles are the evidence of the reality of who Jesus is. 

I can talk about faith, and if I do, I want to tell you that I am a realist. If I were to describe faith to you, I would start by jumping up and down on the floor - for that is what faith is: I have faith that the floor won't collapse under the pressure of jumping; the floor is not a vision, but a reality that was designed to support weight and movement. The Bible says that faith is substance and evidence. The reason that Jesus worked so many miracles was firstly because of His love. The Bible records how He was moved with compassion for the crowds of people following Him; Jesus wanted to make their lives better and easier. Jesus would go into a city like yours, He would see the suffering and despair, and would heal all who were sick. Why? Because He loved them. There is another reason that He worked miracles: the miracles were to be the evidence that He is the Son of God. Jesus was not a prophet or priest, He is certainly not a king or politician, Jesus is the Son of the Living God. My Jesus, your Jesus, the Jesus of the Bible, the Jesus of Russia, of Britain, of the whole world, He is the Son of God.

Isaiah said, 'Who has believed our message? To whom has the Lord revealed His powerful arm?' - I want to ask the same question: to whom, today, has God revealed His love, who are the people that God has revealed His power? Is it only in America, only in Britain? God forbid! God has revealed His power today to the whole world.
