“What doth it
profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? …
Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. … For as
the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”

tell you how to have faith in Jesus for your miracle. Jesus has a

Faith will rise in your heart and you will receive. Tell your family
about it. Tell your friends about it. When you direct people
that you love to God’s Word, you are showing God that you really want to
Our text Scripture
says, “Faith without works is dead.” That means very simply that if
you really believe what God says is true, you will act like it is
When we do not act like it is true, it is because we do not
believe it is true. That is when faith dies. I am going to pray
for you at the end of this study. When I do, if you really believe
that God heard that prayer, you will do two things.
First, you will
begin to rejoice in your heart that He did indeed hear our prayer.
Second, you will act like God has heard our prayer, even if circumstances
make it difficult to do so.
That is faith! It is that
First, rejoice. Second, act like it is true. Then
you will see the power begin to
Cripple Man Was Once Brought to Jesus
“And again he
entered into Capernaum, after some days;
and it was noised that he was in the house. And straightway many were
gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not
so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them. And
they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of
four. And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they
uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let
down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay. When Jesus saw their
faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be
forgiven thee. But there were certain of the scribes sitting there,
and reasoning in their hearts, Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?
immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within
themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these
things in your hearts? Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the
palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed,
and walk? But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on
earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of
the palsy,) I say unto thee, ARISE, AND TAKE UP THY BED, AND GO THY WAY
into thine house. And immediately he arose,
took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all
amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it
on this fashion.” (Mark 2:1-12)
Jesus offered the
man forgiveness for sins first, just like He is
offering you forgiveness today. Then He told the man to do what he
could not do. He told him to get up and walk.
The man did not
complain that he was crippled. He obeyed Jesus and got up to
walk. The end result was he went his way rejoicing.

& John Prayed for Another Crippled Man
They were on their
way to the Temple to pray and saw a
fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us. And he gave heed
unto them, expecting to receive something of them. Then Peter said, Silver and
gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus
Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and
lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ancle
bones received strength. And HE LEAPING UP STOOD, AND WALKED, and entered
with them into the temple, WALKING ... LEAPING, AND PRAISING GOD.”
It took faith for
this man to rise up and walk. He could have sat there and argued
about how long he had been crippled. Rather, he chose to obey Peter,
acting out his faith. He ended up jumping and dancing and praising
God for His mercy.
Why don’t you
rejoice that God is here today doing what only He can do. There is a visitation of God present wherever you are today.
These true accounts are written in the Bible to help you to act your
faith. I know how hard that can seem to be. I have had to
receive healings by faith. That’s what qualifies me to teach
But if you will show Jesus that you believe what you’re reading
here today, you will receive. Say, “O, God, I believe Your
Word. I believe Jesus is Your Son. Help me.”
Blind Men Received a Miracle from Jesus by Faith
Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou
Son of David, have mercy on us. And when he was come into the house, the
blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them,
Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord. Then
touched he their eyes, saying, ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH BE
IT UNTO YOU. And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly
charged them, saying, See that no man know it.” (Matthew 9:27-30)
These men purposely
activated the law of faith. They didn’t sit around waiting for God to
come to them. They didn’t say, “How can we find Him? We’re
blind.” No, sir. They went out, arm in arm, searching for Jesus
using what limited senses they had. They found Him, too, and He was
pretty impressed by their act of “blind” faith.
What He was really
saying to these men is as follows. “First, rejoice because this is
your day for a miracle. Second, act like you believe it’s true.
Use your eyes and expect to see something.” That’s exactly what they
did. They unleashed expectation and received their miracle.
You can do what
these men did. You can do what any of these people in the Bible
did. Rejoice because God is where you are today. Rejoice
because His Word is true. Rejoice because He would never lie to
Right now, do something you could not do and show God that you
Helped Another Man Receive a Miracle
Jesus was standing
up teaching one day, just like I am teaching you now. He looked out
into the crowd and saw a man with a withered hand. His Father’s love
flowed through Him for that man. The Bible says …
“And looking round
about upon them all, he said unto the man, Stretch forth thy hand. And HE
DID SO: AND HIS HAND WAS RESTORED whole
as the other.” (Luke 6:10)
This man did not
say, “Jesus, are you stupid or are you blind? You can see that my
hand is withered and I can’t stretch it forth.”
No, he rejoiced that
Jesus singled him out, having seen his need. He did what he could not
do. He stretched forth his unstretchable
hand and acted his faith.
That’s all it takes
for a miracle. Two simple steps.
There is great power where you
Tap into it by rejoicing in your heart and acting like
what you need is already yours.
“And whatsoever we
ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and DO THOSE
THINGS THAT ARE PLEASING IN HIS SIGHT. And this is his commandment,
That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love
one another, as he gave us commandment.” (1John ,23)
If you have not
made Jesus, the Prophet, the Lord of your
life just say, “Jesus, You’re my choice.” (Romans 10:13)
If there is someone
who has wronged you, God wants you to forgive them so that He can forgive
you. (Mark ) If you will
forgive them, you can rejoice because you are about to receive your
something you couldn’t do before. Act like it’s true because it is.
