“They” are still saying, “That was then but this is now. What God did then, doesn’t happen now.” Jesus preached to 5,000 at one time. Reinhard Bonnke preaches to hundreds of thousands at a time. In one service, entire cities are accepting Jesus Christ as Savior. On one island in the South Pacific, the king and his prime minister help oversee Gospel ministries and the training of ministers which are being sent to Europe. Those who say “that was then but this is now” don’t really mind quoting the old hymn which speaks of God having worked in “mysterious ways, His wonders to perform” but they are not inclined to trust Him to work in mysterious ways now. However, God is working in mysterious ways and performing wonders quite out of the ordinary in the earth, in this hour. In this hour God will have a supernatural people who are no strangers to His supernatural ways.
As the people of God assemble today, may their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ be the focus of every heart and mind. May His praises be made glorious and may the Spirit of Christ flood each and every one with His enabling power to the glory of the Name that is above every name, JESUS. ”Who is like unto Thee, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like Thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?” (Ex.15:11, KJ21)

Signs And Wonders (Kathy Gabler)
The words translated miracle or sign or wonder are, for the most part, interchangeable in the Bible. A working definition is: displays of the supernatural in this natural realm.
That is encouraging in one way because that implies one reason we don’t see signs and wonders is because we don’t SEE them, even though they are on-going. How many of the 5000 plus that were eating on the hillside realized their lunch was a miracle? I’m thinking a good percentage didn’t have a clue! How many thousands of people saw the same star as the three kings, but didn’t know it was a sign and a wonder? When David saw Goliath, he wasn’t looking for a miracle! He was just looking for a rock! However, there were miracles (plural) in the mix that day, beyond the anointed impact of a rock from a sling. The whole scene was a miracle of timing, circumstance and possibly Goliath choosing the wrong helmet that day! Someone who is trained in CPR can easily fail to see the miracle of being in the right place at the right time to participate in the intervention of God in a situation. Isaiah 20:3, calls it a sign and wonder that Isaiah walked naked and barefoot for three years. I’m just not so sure his wife called that a sign and wonder!
