Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
(Heb. 13:8)
Those with this first attitude believe that healing is not for us today. They believe that healing is a miracle, and that miracles do not belong to us today.

I think this first attitude can easily be shown to be erroneous by the simple definition of a miracle. According to the dictionary, a miracle is an act or happening in the material or physical sphere that apparently departs from the laws of nature or goes beyond what is concerning these laws.

A miracle is an intervention of God into the realm of natural laws or human activity. In other words, it's God coming on the scene. And whenever God comes into immediate contact with man, a miracle is performed.

Every answer to prayer, regardless of how small or how big, is a miracle. Every New Birth is a miracle. In fact, you can ask God for no greater miracle than the New Birth.

Think about it. In the New Birth, man becomes a new person. He is not just revamped or worked over. He is born again and becomes a new man, a new creature in Christ Jesus (2 Cor. 5:17).

Therefore, an act of healing whereby God comes into immediate contact with man's physical body is no more a miracle than the New Birth in which God comes into contact with the spirit of man. It takes a miracle to change the nature of an individual.

So to say that miracles belong only to the apostolic age would be to say that the New Birth is not for us today and that from the apostolic age until now, God is only a mere specter in the world that He created.

It's easy to see the fallacy of this teaching. If miracles have passed away, then the New Birth has passed away, and no one can be saved in this day. We know this is not true.

I know that the New Birth has not passed away, because I am saved. I am a new creature in Christ Jesus. Therefore, miracles have not passed away. I receive my miracle - my answer to prayer - now!
