Signs, Wonders, and the Coming Kingdom
We live in a world of total brokenness. Poverty, sickness, disease and disabilities have plagued humanity ever since our sin corrupted the world we live in. When Jesus came he not only offerred authoritative teaching and a message of spiritual healing, but he also provided physical healing. He then gave the apostles' special authority to carry on the same type of healing ministry in the early days of church expansion. Why did God choose to bring the message of spiritual healing along with the signs and wonders of physical healing? Should we expect similar events today in our modern church or has God ceased to work in this way in our day?
