Sermon: The Signs of An Apostle, Justin Pierce – Parts 1 & 2
We are beginning a study into the Signs of An Apostle. We are looking at the signs, wonders and miracles that accompany the proclamation of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God and establish the validity of the Word of God.
We are going to look at the miracles that God the Holy Spirit imparts to His saints as He wills. We discuss the false signs and lying wonders of those who say they are apostles and are not, and we identify what are the true signs and gifts of the Apostles and saints today. This will be done in several parts, and I pray that you are edified by this teaching.
We find out what the signs and wonders are for, and how they are used. 1 Peter 4:10 says “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” A Miracle can be best defined as an activity of God in which he intervenes in the normal course of human events.
There are several lists of Spirituals, or Spiritual Gifts, and they are generally put into 3 categories according to 1 Peter:
- Speaking gifts.
- Service Gifts.
- Temporary Sign Gifts.
