Miracles for Today Part 5: The Floating Axe Head

Dick Iverson writes in THE HOLY SPIRIT TODAY:
“A miracle is a happening or event which is supernatural; the performance of something which is against the laws of nature. A miracle could be called a supernatural phenomenon. Miracles defy reason and transcend natural laws.”
“The one thing which makes Christianity unique is the supernatural. Christianity is totally based on the supernatural. The gift of miracles is simply the God-given ability to cooperate with God as He performs miracles. It is participating with God in the performing of the impossible. It is not man performing miracles, but God performing miracles through a cooperative act with men.” – Pg. 151 The Holy Spirit Today

Herbert Lockyer, a pastor and author defines a miracle as: “a work wrought by a divine power for a divine purpose by means beyond the reach of man.”

J.I. Packer says a miracle is: “an observed event that triggers awareness of God’s presence and power.”

Joshua 10:12-13 NKJV
12. Then Joshua spoke to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel: “Sun, stand still over Gibeon;
And Moon, in the Valley of Aijalon.” 13.   So the sun stood still,
And the moon stopped,
Till the people had revenge
Upon their enemies.

Mark 6:1-6 (NKJV)
Jesus Rejected at Nazareth
1. Then He went out from there and came to His own country, and His disciples followed Him. 2. And when the Sabbath had come, He began to teach in the synagogue. And many hearing Him were astonished, saying, “Where did this Man get these things? And what wisdom is this which is given to Him, that such mighty works are performed by His hands! 3. Is this not the carpenter, the Son of Mary, and brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And are not His sisters here with us?” So they were offended at Him. 4. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house.” 5. Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them. 6. And He marveled because of their unbelief. Then He went about the villages in a circuit, teaching.

Mark 5:25-32 (NKJV)
25. Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, 26. and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse. 27. When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment. 28. For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.” 29. Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction. 30. And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?” 31. But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’ ” 32. And He looked around to see her who had done this thing.

2 Kings 6:1-7 (NKJV)

1 .And the sons of the prophets said to Elisha, “See now, the place where we dwell with you is too small for us. 2. Please, let us go to the Jordan, and let every man take a beam from there, and let us make there a place where we may dwell.” So he answered, “Go.” 3. Then one said, “Please consent to go with your servants.”
And he answered, “I will go.” 4. So he went with them. And when they came to the Jordan, they cut down trees. 5. But as one was cutting down a tree, the iron ax head fell into the water; and he cried out and said, “Alas, master! For it was borrowed.” 6. So the man of God said, “Where did it fall?” And he showed him the place. So he cut off a stick, and threw it in there; and he made the iron float. 7. Therefore he said, “Pick it up for yourself.” So he reached out his hand and took it.

17. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18. they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

Jeremiah 32:27 (ESV)
“Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is anything too hard for me?
