All throughout the Bible, God used miracles to show His power and sovereignty. During Jesus’ time on earth, He used miracles of supernatural healing and provision to reveal that He was the true Messiah, the Son of God.
Hebrews 2:4 says, “ … God also bore witness by signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.”
Read what Billy Graham had to say about miracles:
Yes, the miracles in the Bible really did happen; every attempt to delete them from the Bible or explain them away has always ended in failure.
We sometimes dismiss people who lived 2,000 or 3,000 years ago as ignorant and gullible – but they weren’t, especially when it came to miracles. They lived close to nature – much closer than most of us do – and knew firsthand the reality of storms and illness and death. They knew dead people didn’t come back to life and storms didn’t suddenly stop – not unless God was at work.
[Miracles] pointed to God and His power. They also were like signposts pointing to Jesus as the only Savior, sent by God to bring us our salvation. On one occasion Jesus told His enemies, “Even though you do not believe me, believe the miracles, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me” (John 10:38). pointed to God and His power.

On one occasion Jesus told His enemies, “Even though you do not believe me, believe the miracles, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me” (John 10:38).
The greatest miracle of all…was Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. By it Jesus conquered death and Hell and sin and Satan forever – and because of it we have the hope of eternal life.
Is this possible? Yes – with God’s help.
I sincerely hope you will believe what the Bible says — not just about miracles, but about God and His love for us.
The God who made the rules that govern the universe also has the authority to set them aside. And on occasion He has, if it was necessary to serve His purposes.
The Bible’s miracles are an important part of its story, and it is impossible to extract them from the Bible without destroying its central message. What is that message? It is the message that God is real, and He created us so we could know and love Him.
The main reason for Jesus’…however, was to demonstrate that God was with Him, and that He was the promised Savior sent from God.
God is not limited, and He is certainly able to work in miraculous ways today just as He did in biblical times, if He so chooses.
