No Separation Between Gospel Message and Miracles

Hey Guys! In the blog area of the website we will be posting teachings and MANY testimonies. We have SO many testimonies already, and many more to come. It is nearly impossible to record every testimony when we follow Jesus. The Apostle John wrote in John 21:25 “And there are also many other things Jesus did, which if they were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books that would be written.”. Jesus is STILL ALIVE and we still have this same problem :). So like I said before, we will do our best to post as many testimonies as we can. Our heart is that you come with us and obtain your own testimony of what Jesus did through you!!!
Here are a few scriptures concerning the Gospel of The Kingdom…

“For the kingdom of God does not consist in words but in power.” 1 Corinthians 4:20

“for our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction; just as you know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake.” 1 Thessalonians 1:5

“and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:4-5

“And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.'” Matthew 10:7-8

“Therefore, those who had been scattered went about preaching the word. Philip went down to the city of Samaria and began proclaiming Christ to them. The crowds with one accord were giving attention to what was said by Philip, as they heard and saw the signs which he was performing. For in the case of many who had unclean spirits, they were coming out of them shouting with a loud voice; and many who had been paralyzed and lame were healed. So there was much rejoicing in that city.” Acts 8:4-8

“And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” Mark 16:15-18

TESTIMONY

This man was walking by when we were reading the bible with some people we met at the train station in downtown Fort Worth. He stopped, and Austin and I started talking to him about Jesus. He was already a believer, and was so encouraged by what we were doing, so he hung out with us as we shared the gospel, and handed out tacos from Jack N the Box. After awhile we prayed for his knee. He had torn his MCL 2 years previous, and after multiple surgeries he still had major problems with it. He had not been able to bend his knee much or run in those 2 years. Being compelled by love, we layed our hands on his knee, prayed in the name of Jesus, and immediately he was healed. He said the pain was gone, he bent his knee like he had not been able to previously, and took off running, yelling “JESUS IS ALIVE” “JESUS IS ALIVE”. We yelled with him! Because of this miracle, many came over to us, asking to hear about Jesus, and to receive prayer. We shared what Jesus did for us on the cross with many, and prayed for many. God moved in a mighty way that day. It all started with loving the person in front of us, and believing that the Word of God is true! The picture above was taken 30 minutes after he left. He was gone but his crutch and his cast was still on the sidewalk 🙂
