My friends it is not two churches, but one church! If anything there should be a greater manifestation today than then. What’s the problem? Unbelief! The traditions of men. Signs, wonders and miracles follow those who believe or the believing ones! You can be born-again, but not believing in signs, wonders and miracles. The Father wants people to be saved, healed of sickness and disease, delivered from demons and filled and protected by the Holy Spirit from every attack of the devil. Signs and wonders demonstrate Jesus’ power to the unsaved and encourage believers in their faith.
The Bible that you and I read is about a person. That person is the Lord Jesus Christ. We should be able to find Jesus on the pages of every book in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Colossians 1:15-18 tells us that if we want to understand Almighty God the Father we should look at Jesus. He (Jesus) is the creator and the reason for creation of all things. He is the head of the church, which is His body, and He has the pre-eminence, which means first in rank and influence. Our focus now as New Testament Christians is all about Him not on ourselves.
