Jesus Christ - Lord of Miracles

Compiled by Amanda T.

Jesus Christ was the Lord of miracles. There are many more miracles than we can ever imagine, but here are a few.

His Birth
 “And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call His name JESUS . . . Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God . . . For with God nothing shall be impossible.” Luke 1:30-31, 34 -35, 37

His Sinless Life
 “For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:” (1 Peter 2:21-22)
“For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.” 2 Corinthians 5:21
“And ye know that He was manifested to take away our sins; and in Him is no sin.” 1 John 3:5

His Ministry
Blind received sight (Matthew 9:28-30, Matthew 12:22, Matthew 20:32-34, Matthew 21:13, Mark 8:22-26, and more)
Lame walked (Matthew 15:30, Matthew 21:14)
Dumb spake (Matthew 9:32-33, Matthew 12:22, Mark 7:37, Mark 9:17-27, Luke 11:14)
Issue of blood healed (Matthew 9:20-22, Mark 5:25-34)
Dead raised to life (Mark 5:22-42, Luke 8:41-55, John 11:41-45)
And many more that, if written, the world could not contain (John 21:25)

His Death
Darkness over the earth (Matthew 27:45, Luke 23:44)
Graves opened (Matthew 27:51)
Veil rent in two (Matthew 27:51, Luke 23:45)

His Resurrection
“And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it . . . And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.” Matthew 28:2, 5-6
“He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.” Luke 24:6-7

His Salvation
Every day, Christ works a miracle when He takes a sinful, wretched man and gives him new, eternal life.
“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” John 3:14-17
 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13

God is truly the God of the impossible! Praise be to His Name!!
