It was clear to the elite doctors of the law in Jerusalem that Jesus was no ordinary child even at age 12. 32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. Yet with all His astounding gifts, Jesus personally emphasized that He had no inherent ability to accomplish anything miraculous on His own.
Because the Spirit provided by God the Father would soon be available to them, Jesus made the surprising statement to His disciples that they would do even greater works than He did (12 Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. Jesus further explained that this would be possible because He was going to His Father and would send this same Holy Spirit to work in the lives of His disciples (7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth. On at least one occasion it appears some were healed simply by Peter’s shadow falling on them (15 so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them.
37 And He permitted no one to follow Him except Peter, James, and John the brother of James.
38 Then He came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and saw a tumult and those who wept and wailed loudly. Jesus Christ Himself, of course, was raised to life again after three days and three nights in the grave.
38 And since Lydda was near Joppa, and the disciples had heard that Peter was there, they sent two men to him, imploring him not to delay in coming to them.
41 Then he gave her his hand and lifted her up; and when he had called the saints and widows, he presented her alive.
This was the power to which Jesus referred when He spoke to His disciples just before His ascension to heaven. This power is available and is presently working in the lives of thousands of people, and it will someday perform the greatest miracle of all—changing us from a mere physical creation to a spiritual creation when God grants to us the gift of eternal life!
God provides His Holy Spirit to bring us into a relationship with our spiritual Father and Creator and to make possible eternal life through a resurrection (9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you.
2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Then one night middle daughter Anna (Kylie Rogers, The Whispers) starts screaming about abdominal pain and throwing up. The main problem with Miracles is that there isn’t enough story for a one hundred and nine minute movie, and instead of cutting twenty minutes out, director Patricia Riggen (The 33) inserts a couple Christian rock videos into the movie to pad the run time. Miracles from Heaven will satisfy its intended audience and do absolutely nothing for anyone else.

Does His ability to heal and do other wondrous things have anything to do with God working in our lives today? The angel Gabriel appeared to Mary before her pregnancy and explained to her that the Child she would carry would be the result of God’s Holy Spirit coming upon her, not through normal marital relations with her husband (31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus.
He said in 19 Then Jesus answered and said to them, Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. The Father actually did the works by allowing His Spirit to work through His Son (see also 38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.
New King James Version (NKJV) The Holy Bible, New King James Version ©1982 by Thomas Nelson">Acts 5:15)!
But when He had put them all outside, He took the father and the mother of the child, and those who were with Him, and entered where the child was lying. Later the apostle Peter, by the same power of God’s Spirit, raised Dorcas to life in 36 At Joppa there was a certain disciple named Tabitha, which is translated Dorcas. On the Day of Pentecost the apostle Peter explained what an individual needed to do in order to have the help from God that we all need. Yes, we have, of course, a day-to-day existence where we fuel our body and mind and have a physical, biochemical experience for a finite period of time. It is the power of God that gives a person a type of peace of mind, courage, faith and hope that can be found nowhere else. Yet physical miracles alone are not what Jesus Himself said was the most important experience in this life.
Are the miracles of Jesus just something interesting to read about or does how Jesus was able to perform them have any significance for you? Nurko (Eugenio Derbez, an accomplished Mexican triple-threat best known for Vecinos and La familia P.
It has that pacing problem and lack of interesting characters problem, but Jennifer Garner gives a solid performance that makes the whole movie go. Imagine what any of us could accomplish if we had, without limit, the power of God through His Holy Spirit!
Our Savior declared in 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? This was a remarkable testament to the working of God’s Spirit and something that did not happen in precisely the same manner even with the Son of God. And all the widows stood by him weeping, showing the tunics and garments which Dorcas had made while she was with them.

On one occasion His disciples were in awe of the fact that even the demonic spirits would obey them through Christ’s authority.
The real miracle is the change from centering our attention only on the physical things of this material life to the more eternal things of God (6 For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Based on a book by Christy Beam about her daughter Anna’s devastating illness and mysterious recovery, Miracles from Heaven is a perfectly nice movie about perfectly nice people that is made to make other perfectly nice people feel perfectly nice. Texas pride.) At the beginning of the movie, they have an idyllic life on their farm, with animals galore.
She is totally convincing as a distraught mother faced with a terrible reality, and she nails not only Christy’s crisis of faith but also her determination to find help for her daughter.
Again, this probably won’t register with the intended audience at all because the Heartwarming Content never goes down.
And this is not a character study, it’s a movie meant to make perfectly nice people feel perfectly nice, and it succeeds.
The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.
Though none of His followers would ever be anywhere near as righteous or virtuous as Jesus or do as many miracles as Jesus, we find later in the New Testament that God worked mightily through them as well. The reason God wants to grant us His Spirit is not to perform startling miracles but to transform our minds (1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
We meet Christy (Jennifer Garner), your typical happy homemaker, shepherding her three perfect blonde daughters to school every day and asking them to share one of their prayers every night. The best he can do for Anna, though, is palliative care, and the family nearly goes bankrupt trying to afford the plethora of medicine and constant trips to Boston to see Dr. One of the nice touches Riggen inserts is showing Anna in heaven, which resembles a Monet painting she was taken with during a trip to a museum. The Beams are a pretty family in a pretty house and go to church every Sunday and host the BBQ afterwards.
