    We need to discuss this!
    1. what defines a miracle?
    2. Isn’t God in control?
    3. Or does the Evil one also do miracles?

    All Miracles Are Not God’s Miracles.
    Not all miracles come from God. God is all powerful, but not all miracles come from God. There are people that are not of God that can perform signs and wonders. Matthew 24:24 advises us that all miracles do not come from God.
    Matthew 24:24, “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”

  4. In our confession of faith, we sometimes confess that “we are in bondage to sin and cannot free ourselves.” The forgiveness and new life in Christ frees us from our bondage to sin, and frees us to love and care for one another. We are still sinners, and will always be this side of the resurrection. But we are at the same time forgiven and freed to love.


  5. I was reminded this winter that physical pain can hold us in complete bondage to itself. I wasn’t able to do anything without experiencing excruciating nerve pain. Pain medications dulled the sharp pain and helped me to get by, but my bondage only ended when I experienced healing. And once I was healed (over 40+ days after my pain began) it was difficult to even imagine that pain.

    Neither bondage not pain knows middle ground.


  6. Another thought today, it’s really a question, is this boiler problem the church is having…does this mean we are “bounded” to worship in our activity center? So, what’s the boiler issue really telling us? We will discuss Tuesday night,


  7. Just completed my 31 day (24hr.) Rhythmsrtar heart monitoring. So I was “bound” by 4 wires (attached to 4 electrodes attached to my chest). Having these wire was sort of like a physical bondage


  8. In the past month I have taken up learning to play the harmonica. Do I ever fell bound in the ability to inhale/exhale thru the harmonica to play notes….leading to a song! I have documented breathing “challenges”, so I’m taking “the next step” to help free me from this breathing bondage.


  9. After my head injury in the early 90’s, it sure seems that “rapid movements” create some sort of anxiety in my nervous system (causing me to tremor). This is the “bondage” that’s affecting me. If yo read this, please post and share your own story.
