 Re:


I don’t know “what” perspective you are...

Quote:

Jesus said about the ones who needed to see signs and wonders in order to believe on Him. He said, and I will quote, “Only a wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign.” This was spoken to the Pharisees who demanded to see a sign. Jesus sharply rebuked them and then told them that the only “sign” that would be given for people to believe is the sign of Jonah…in other words…the only “sign” that would be given for people to believe was the death, burial, and resurrection of the living God! Basically, Jesus was saying to the Pharisees, as He still says to us today, that if you don’t believe based on the death, burial, and resurrection, then nothing else will make you truly believe. And that’s the way it still stands today. Yet many still get lured in to seeking after the supernatural signs and wonders and much of their faith is based upon such seeking. Dangerous.



Or this one....

When Jesus said, "An evil and adulterous generation seeks a sign" He was saying it is wrong to put God to the test first in order to believe He is who He said He is (Messiah). He was not saying it is wrong to want to see people healed, delivered of devils, give or receive prophecy, etc. The cessationist crowd jumps on that verse to squash all the spiritual gifts. God is the giver of the gifts. But people can have a good and correct motives surrounding the gifts or wrong motives.



I'm not trying to be argumentative, I'm just trying to be clear in my own mind where you are coming from... It’s like you changed in mid-stream!!

God bless you,Brother,

This one, the one I said in my last post "Please read Daniels/TrueWitness post that I said I totally agree with"
