and into thy bedchamber, and upon thy bed, and into the house of thy servants, and upon thy people,

and into thine ovens, and into thy kneading troughs:

And the frogs shall come up both on thee, and upon thy people, and upon all thy servants.

5 And the Lord spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch forth thine hand with thy rod over the streams,

dust of the earth, and it became lice in man, and in beast; all the dust of the land

became lice throughout all the land of Egypt."

 

4. The swarms of flies.

upon thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thy houses: and the houses of the Egyptians

shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.

22 And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of

flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the Lord in the midst of the earth.

23 And I will put a division between my people and thy people: tomorrow shall this sign be.

the asses, upon the camels, upon the oxen, and upon the sheep: there shall be a very grievous

murrain.

And the Lord shall sever between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt: and there shall

nothing die of all that is the children's of Israel.

And the Lord appointed a set time, saying, To morrow the Lord shall do this thing in the land.

man and beast which shall be found in the field, and shall not be brought home, the hail shall

come down upon them, and they shall die.

20 He that feared the word of the Lord among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and

his cattle flee into the houses:

21 And he that regarded not the word of the Lord left his servants and his cattle in the field.

22 And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven, that there may be hail

in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout

the land of Egypt.

23 And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the Lord sent thunder and hail, and the

fire ran along upon the ground; and the Lord rained hail upon the land of Egypt.

24 So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it

in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.

25 And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast;

13 And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt, and the Lord brought an east wind

upon the land all that day, and all that night; and when it was morning, the east wind brought

 the locusts.

14 And the locust went up over all the land of Egypt, and rested in all the coasts of Egypt: very

grievous were they; before them there were no such locusts as they, neither after them shall be

such.

15 For they covered the face of the whole earth, so that the land was darkened; and they did eat

the firstborn of beasts.

And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it,

nor shall be like it any more.

that ye may know how that the Lord doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel."

were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.

23 And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh's

horses, his chariots, and his horsemen.

24 And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the Lord looked unto the host of the Egyptians

through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians,

25 And took off their chariot wheels, that they drave them heavily: so that the Egyptians said, Let

us flee from the face of Israel; for the Lord fighteth for them against the Egyptians.

26 And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the waters may come

again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen.

27 And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the

morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the Lord overthrew the Egyptians

in the midst of the sea.

28 And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh

that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them.

29 But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall

I am the Lord your God.

13 And it came to pass, that at even the quails came up, and covered the camp: and in the

morning the dew lay round about the host.

14 And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay

a small round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground.

Moses said unto them, Why chide ye with me? wherefore do ye tempt the Lord?

And the people thirsted there for water; and the people murmured against Moses, and said,

Wherefore is this that thou hast brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our

cattle with thirst?

And Moses cried unto the Lord, saying, What shall I do unto this people? they be almost ready

to stone me.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel;

and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go.

20 And he cried unto the Lord, and said, O Lord my God, hast thou also brought evil upon the

widow with whom I sojourn, by slaying her son?

21 And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the Lord, and said,

O Lord my God, I pray thee, let this child's soul come into him again.

22 And the Lord heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and

he revived.

23 And Elijah took the child, and brought him down out of the chamber into the house, and

delivered him unto his mother: and Elijah said, See, thy son liveth.

and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.

Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is

feed thee there.

So he went and did according unto the word of the Lord: for he went and dwelt by the

And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the

evening; and he drank of the brook."

unto him, O man of God, thus hath the king said, Come down quickly.

prophets were sitting before him: and he said unto his servant, Set on the great pot, and

seethe pottage for the sons of the prophets.

39 And one went out into the field to gather herbs, and found a wild vine, and gathered

thereof wild gourds his lap full, and came and shred them into the pot of pottage: for they knew

them not.

40 So they poured out for the men to eat. And it came to pass, as they were eating of the

pottage, that they cried out, and said, O thou man of God, there is death in the pot. And they

could not eat thereof.

that they may eat.

people, that they may eat: for thus saith the Lord, They shall eat, and shall leave thereof.

44 So he set it before them, and they did eat, and left thereof, according to the word of the Lord."

 

23. Instant disease and healing.

2 Kings 5:10-27

"And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying, Go and wash in Jordan seven times, and

thy flesh shall come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean.

11 But Naaman was wroth, and went away, and said, Behold, I thought, He will surely

come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of the Lord his God, and strike his hand over

the place, and recover the leper.

12 Are not Abana and Pharpar, rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel?

May I not wash in them, and be clean? So he turned and went away in a rage.

13 And his servants came near, and spake unto him, and said, My father, if the prophet

had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not have done it? how much rather then,

when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean?

14 Then went he down, and dipped himself seven times in Jordan, according to the saying

of the man of God: and his flesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was

clean.

15 And he returned to the man of God, he and all his company, and came, and stood

before him: and he said, Behold, now I know that there is no God in all the earth, but in Israel:

now therefore, I pray thee, take a blessing of thy servant.

16 But he said, As the Lord liveth, before whom I stand, I will receive none. And he urged him

to take it; but he refused.

17 And Naaman said, Shall there not then, I pray thee, be given to thy servant two mules'

burden of earth? For thy servant will henceforth offer neither burnt offering nor sacrifice unto other

gods, but unto the Lord.

18 In this thing the Lord pardon thy servant, that when my master goeth into the house of

Rimmon to worship there, and he leaneth on my hand, and I bow myself in the house of

Rimmon: when I bow down myself in the house of Rimmon, the Lord pardon thy servant in

this thing.

19 And he said unto him, Go in peace. So he departed from him a little way.

20 But Gehazi, the servant of Elisha the man of God, said, Behold, my master hath spared

Naaman this Syrian, in not receiving at his hands that which he brought: but, as the Lord liveth,

I will run after him, and take somewhat of him.

21 So Gehazi followed after Naaman. And when Naaman saw him running after him, he lighted

down from the chariot to meet him, and said, Is all well?

22 And he said, All is well. My master hath sent me, saying, Behold, even now there be come

to me from mount Ephraim two young men of the sons of the prophets: give them, I pray thee,

a talent of silver, and two changes of garments.

23 And Naaman said, Be content, take two talents. And he urged him, and bound two talents

of silver in two bags, with two changes of garments, and laid them upon two of his servants; and

they bare them before him.

24 And when he came to the tower, he took them from their hand, and bestowed them in the

house: and he let the men go, and they departed.

25 But he went in, and stood before his master. And Elisha said unto him, Whence comest thou,

Gehazi? And he said, Thy servant went no whither.

26 And he said unto him, Went not mine heart with thee, when the man turned again from his

chariot to meet thee? Is it a time to receive money, and to receive garments, and olive yards, and

vineyards, and sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and maidservants?

27 The leprosy therefore of Naaman shall cleave unto thee, and unto thy seed for ever. And he

went out from his presence a leper as white as snow."

 

24. Iron ax head, made to swim.

2 Kings 6:5-7

"But as one was felling a beam, the axe head fell into the water: and he cried, and said,

Alas, master! for it was borrowed.

And the man of God said, Where fell it? And he shewed him the place. And he cut down a

stick, and cast it in thither; and the iron did swim.

Therefore said he, Take it up to thee. And he put out his hand, and took it."

 

25. Mind reading prophecies.

2 Kings 6:12

"And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the Lord went out, and smote in the camp

of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the

morning, behold, they were all dead corpses."

 

30. Shadow of sun recedes.

2 Kings 20:9-11

"And Isaiah said, This sign shalt thou have of the Lord, that the Lord will do the thing that

he hath spoken: shall the shadow go forward ten degrees, or go back ten degrees?

10 And Hezekiah answered, It is a light thing for the shadow to go down ten degrees: nay,

but let the shadow return backward ten degrees.

11 And Isaiah the prophet cried unto the Lord: and he brought the shadow ten degrees

backward, by which it had gone down in the dial of Ahaz."

 

31. Instant disease.

2 Chronicles 26:16-21

"But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed

against the Lord his God, and went into the temple of the Lord to burn incense upon the

altar of incense.

17 And Azariah the priest went in after him, and with him fourscore priests of the Lord,

that were valiant men:

18 And they withstood Uzziah the king, and said unto him, It appertaineth not unto thee,

Uzziah, to burn incense unto the Lord, but to the priests the sons of Aaron, that are consecrated

to burn incense: go out of the sanctuary; for thou hast trespassed; neither shall it be for thine

honour from the Lord God.

19 Then Uzziah was wroth, and had a censer in his hand to burn incense: and while he

was wroth with the priests, the leprosy even rose up in his forehead before the priests in the

house of the Lord, from beside the incense altar.

20 And Azariah the chief priest, and all the priests, looked upon him, and, behold, he was

leprous in his forehead, and they thrust him out from thence; yea, himself hasted also to go

out, because the Lord had smitten him.

21 And Uzziah the king was a leper unto the day of his death, and dwelt in a several house,

being a leper; for he was cut off from the house of the Lord: and Jotham his son was over the

king's house, judging the people of the land."

 

32. Protection in blazing fire.

Daniel 3:10-30

"Thou, O king, hast made a decree, that every man that shall hear the sound of the cornet,

flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, shall fall down and

worship the golden image:

11 And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth, that he should be cast into the midst

of a burning fiery furnace.

12 There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the province of Babylon,

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego; these men, O king, have not regarded thee: they serve

not thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

13 Then Nebuchadnezzar in his rage and fury commanded to bring Shadrach, Meshach,

and Abednego. Then they brought these men before the king.

14 Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and

Abednego, do not ye serve my gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up?

15 Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp,

sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the

image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into

the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my

hands?

16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar,

we are not careful to answer thee in this matter.

17 If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace,

and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.

18 But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship

the golden image which thou hast set up.

19 Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat

the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated.

20 And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach,

Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace.

21 Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their hats, and their other

garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

22 Therefore because the king's commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot,

the flames of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

23 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst

of the burning fiery furnace.

24 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonished, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said

unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered

and said unto the king, True, O king.

25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they

have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

26 Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and

said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come

hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire.

27 And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king's counsellors, being gathered

together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head

singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them.

28 Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and

Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have

changed the king's word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any

god, except their own God.

29 Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak

anything amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, shall be cut in pieces,

and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God that can deliver

after this sort.

30 Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in the province of Babylon."

 

33. Protection from hungry lions.

Daniel 6:16-24

"Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions.

Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will

deliver thee.

17 And a stone was brought, and laid upon the mouth of the den; and the king sealed it

with his own signet, and with the signet of his lords; that the purpose might not be changed

concerning Daniel.

18 Then the king went to his palace, and passed the night fasting: neither were instruments

of musick brought before him: and his sleep went from him.

19 Then the king arose very early in the morning, and went in haste unto the den of lions.

20 And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and the

king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou

servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?

21 Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever.

22 My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, that they have not hurt

me: for as much as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king,

have I done no hurt.

23 Then was the king exceedingly glad for him, and commanded that they should take

Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no manner of hurt was

found upon him, because he believed in his God.

24 And the king commanded, and they brought those men which had accused Daniel, and

they cast them into the den of lions, them, their children, and their wives; and the lions had

the mastery of them, and brake all their bones in pieces or ever they came at the bottom of

the den."

 

34. Jonah in a belly of a whale.

Jonah 2:1-10

"Then Jonah prayed unto the Lord his God out of the fish's belly,

And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the Lord, and he heard me;

out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice.

For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods

compassed me about: all thy billows and thy waves passed over me.

Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again toward thy holy

temple.

The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me

round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.

I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was

about me forever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O Lord my

God.

When my soul fainted within me I remembered the Lord: and my prayer

came in unto thee, into thine holy temple.

They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.

But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that

that I have vowed. Salvation is of the Lord.

10 And the Lord spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the

dry land."

 

35. Gideon's fleece.

Judges 6:37-40

"Behold, I will put a fleece of wool in the floor; and if the dew be on the fleece

only, and it be dry upon all the earth beside, then shall I know that thou wilt

save Israel by mine hand, as thou hast said.

38 And it was so: for he rose up early on the morrow, and thrust the fleece

together, and wringed the dew out of the fleece, a bowl full of water.

39 And Gideon said unto God, Let not thine anger be hot against me, and I

will speak but this once: let me prove, I pray thee, but this once with the fleece;

let it now be dry only upon the fleece, and upon all the ground let there be dew.

40 And God did so that night: for it was dry upon the fleece only, and there

was dew on all the ground."

Book of Acts

 

Does God do miracles today?

Yes.

 

How do these miracles happen?

God performs and does miracles, signs and wonders with his people;

Because of his love and compassion for mankind.

God does these miracles to eliminate pain, suffering, lack of knowledge and faith.

God does these miracles to produce salvation in people, that is kept unto;

Eternal life in Heaven, with great reward.

 

Does God use anyone to do his miracles through or with?

No.

God must approve of the person he uses, before he will utilize them.

A. Jesus

Acts 2:22

"Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved

of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by

him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know."

 

B. Peter

Acts 5:14-16

"And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men

and women.

15 Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid

them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing

by might overshadow some of them.

16 There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem,

bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they

were healed everyone."

 

C. Paul

Acts 19:11

"And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul."
