Test Signs and Wonders Biblically Sep 6, 2008
This is an excellent book on the subject of modern-day miracles and equipping you to be able to test them Biblically.
I found particularly valuable the chapters on
- "Psychological or Supernatural", which deals with placebo effects, biofeedback, hypnosis, stress-related illnesses, and other things that the mind can influence vs. organic diseases;
- "Is there a Yardstick for Miracles" containing an excellent explanation on "testing everything, holding onto what is good" (1 Thessalonians 5:21), particularly as it applies to Biblical miracles. Upon closer examination, I was very surprised to find out that Biblical miracles are very different than what passes today for "miracles", such as they are always immediate (or very close to it), there are no relapses, they are always successful, God is always that one being glorified by confirming his nature or his Word, a miracles are always associated with truth, etc.
This book teaches very well how experience needs to be judged by the Bible, not the Bible by your experience. While miracles surely occur today, we have to be very careful not to fall for counterfeit miracles, without testing them carefully and Biblically. This book will help you learn and understand how to test miracles, Biblically.
Finally, it also looks at miracles and healings in other faiths (such as Hindu) and by other non-Christians, who can obtain the same results as the results of the reported "miracles" often shown in Charismatic/ Pentecostal circles. Did God of the Bible become universalistic? Of course not!
Other excellent books on this subject matter are: To Be Continued?: Are the Miraculous Gifts for Today?, Miracles Around Us: How to Recognize God at Work Today, and The Other Side of the River.
