undependable method to world evangelism. Miracles are not
just proofs of deity; miracles of the Bible have salvation
in them. “Faith”, “save”, and “mercy” are words that appear

a brief glimpse into heaven where there is no sickness,
death, or oppression by the devil.
REMEMBER: The miracle ministry of Jesus Christ is
still God’s indispensable method of world evangelism today.
That the church is still the greatest power on earth today.
It is because the Church possesses Christ.
God bless you and yours!
