“The most basic sin, according to the Word of God, is unbelief. This is the root of all sin. How sad that we pay so little attention to the one sin that the Bible emphasises the most” - Watchman Nee
Despite Jesus having done many miracles, the Pharisees continued to have unbelief and even spoke evil about Him and blasphemy against the Holy Spirit (Matthew 12:22-37). Insisting on seeing miraculous sign, they said to Jesus, “Teacher, we want to see a miraculous sign from you” (V.38).
Jesus knew about their wicked hearts and He rebuked and answered them in Matthew 12:39, “A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a miraculous sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.”
Jesus was referring to the wicked and disobedient whom Stephen also rebuked in Acts 7:51, “You stiff-necked people, with uncircumcised hearts and ears! You are just like your fathers: You always resist the Holy Spirit!”
If you are called to be a forerunner or a revivalist, don't think that when the Holy Spirit starts moving, people are going to love you. Just like the book of Acts, when the noise of stirring and moving of the Spirit begins, so does persecution. People will accuse you of being a cult and speak evil about you. They will want to destroy you, like the history of past revival faced by people like John Wesley, the famous evangelist John Sung and many others.
Just wonder about the controversy that swirled around Jesus, then around the apostles, and since then around every major move of God in history.
As disciples, we work with God in Oneness as a Spirit of unity as written in John 14:11. If the Lord works with us, the Lord will confirm His word by the signs that accompany it (Mark 16:20).
Signs and wonders follow the preaching of the WORD. They are GOD'S SIGNS, not ours.
Prior to the Lord’s return, He is pouring His Spirit upon all flesh (Joel 2:28) and the latter rain will be greater than the former rain, for the the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
Our God is Spirit and He is a God of miracles. Being led by the Spirit of God, and to walk in the Spirit with signs and wonders is a norm for every children of God. It is a mark of true Sonship.
A man of God wrote:
“If we teach, preach or witness and nothing happens, we must go back to the drawing board --- on our knees. Do not make excuses for powerlessness. For decades the church has been guilty of creating doctrines to justify their lack of power, instead of crying out to God until He changed them. The lie they came to believe has given rise to an entire branch of theology that has inflicted the body of Christ without the fear of the Holy Spirit. The Word must go forth with power. Power is the realm of the Spirit.”
