A miracle is an occasion not explainable by natural or scientific act, such an event may be accredited to a supernatural being (God, gods or deities), a miracle performer, a saint or a religious leader. The word “miracle” is often used to typify any useful happening that is statistically unlikely but not contrary to the laws of nature, such as passing the border post invisible without anyone seeing you, Crossing the river walking on top of water, Praying for people making them get possessed and fall down, or simply a “wonderful” occurrence, regardless of likelihood, such as a having your accounts paid up without you having done so in person. Other miracles might be: survival of a chronic disease diagnosed as incurable through muthi, prayer powers, spiritual powers with the work of a miracle worker, saint or a religious leader; or simply escaping a life-threatening state of affairs or ‘ overcoming the negativity of any sort’. There are many other things that may be seen as miracles. Prophesying people telling them things like a friend or enemy’s phone number etc;
People their Views and Miracles
Many people are confused and they confuse one another when it comes to the understanding of Miracles and the word miracle. Many people are made to believe that miracles are only true miracles when they are performed by their own people or religious leaders or only in their line of belief. This is not true, any person who posses the gift of powers to be miraculous and who has found or been given powers to be miraculous can do miracles. In many religions more especially in Christianity and Moslem; they don’t believe miracles are miracles when they are performed by people of other religions, with their monotheistic system of things they understand only themselves to be the true miracle workers and the saints, which is very wrong. Miracles were long there since the beginning of existence of man.
Miracle Powers are Given
According to some bible passages, Samuel gave powers to David and he became powerful and miraculous; he ‘David’ even went on to kill the multitudes through those powers; it was never called sin; I Khokhovula give prophetic powers to modern day prophets, Sangoma powers to today’s Sangomas for them to be miraculous; It is looked upon as sin by those who call themselves Holly-Holly and the chosen, but miracles are one and the same. Through the miracle powers that I posses and that I give out I have removed bad spirits, Snakes that haunt people in their homes and businesses, bad spirits that cause miscarriages and divorces; I have through those miraculous powers removed witches an d their tools they use to attack innocent people of God. It is all miracles.
Useful and Useless Miracles
There are Miracles that people do only to blow their trumpets or just to create fame out of nothing; but there are all miracles. Useful miracles are those where people get healed from chronic diseases, survive natural disasters through spiritual help or a prayer, have their accounts paid through spiritual help or a prayer, helped to get required or needed documents or papers through miracles, powers or prayers etc. Useless miracles is where people lift engines with their teeth just to make fun or have people paying for that, swallow and vomit razor blades, breath fire, chew-swallow and vomit bottles, making a long thin wire and walk on it without falling; miracles such as these are useless miracles. Jesus is said to have raised Lazarus from the dead; the only one miracle of its own kind and a very difficult one to believe since people have been dying ever since with lots of miracles performed on earth and nobody raised, yes people and many of them prominent, big and special were dying by then and only Lazarus was raised. I’m not querying the miracle but only saying is a miracle like all other miracles, but useful cause the life was brought back to earth, if it really happened.
Miracles of Jesus
The bible editors record three sorts of miracles performed by Jesus: exorcism, cures, and nature wonders. In John’s chapters in the New Testament miracles are referred to as “signs” and the weight is on God demonstrating his underlying normal activity in remarkable ways. In the New Testament, the greatest miracle is the resurrection of Jesus, the event central to Christian faith.
According to the Bible Jesus explains in the New Testament that miracles are performed by Faith in God. “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘move from here to there’ and it will move.” (Book of Mathew 17:20). After Jesus returned to heaven, the book of Acts records that the disciples of Jesus praying to God to grant that miracles be done in his name for the purpose of convincing onlookers that he is alive. (Acts 4:29–31).
Other passages mention False prophets who will be able to perform miracles to deceive “if possible, even the following of Christ” (Matthew 24:24). 2 Thessalonians 2:9 says, “And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the Truth, that they might be saved.” Revelation 13:13, 14 says, “And he do great wonders, so that he make fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, and deceives them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.” Revelation 16:14 says, “For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.” Revelation 19:20 says, “And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that fashioned miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.” These passages indicate that signs, wonders, and miracles are not necessarily committed by God but by people who possess the powers to do so.
All these acts mentioned above are called miracles nevertheless were done by a messiah, a religious leader, a prophet, a sangoma or a simple man on the ground. In the above verses, Satan is aligned with the beasts, in other bible verses the beasts are aligned with the thrown of God ‘The heavens’ which simple tells you that all these figures are or can be miraculous if possessed or gifted with such powers. One problem with these people is that they label each other bad names ‘This is a Holy miracle, This is a Satanic miracle, This is a demonic miracle, This is a bad miracle, This is good miracle. Christians always consider their miracles to be the Godly ones and all others to be evil which is not true, many Christians of today source their miracle powers from those they call Unholy. A Christian person must know and understand that the growth of Christian religion was propelled by miracles said to have been performed.
Early Christianity and Miracles
In early Christianity miracles were the most often attested motivations for conversions of Pagans; pagan Romans took the existence of miracles for granted; Christian texts reporting them offered miracles as divine proof of the Christian God’s unique claim to authority, relegating all other gods to the lower status: “of all worships, the Christian best and most particularly advertised its miracles by driving out of spirits and laying of hands to the sick and the needy”. The book of John is structured around miraculous acts “signs”: The success of the Apostles according to the church histories relied in their miracles: “though laymen in their lingo, preaching, performing miracles, curing and receiving lots and lots of gifts, they always asserted and drew courage from divine with miraculous powers.
Since the beginning of mankind miracles have often needed to be modernized and other Christians have argued that miracles are reasonable and believable. Some people believe that a miracle is something that comes totally out of the blue. If a woman can become pregnant only by sexual intercourse with a man, then if she were to become pregnant without a man, it then would be a miracle, as of the pregnancy of Maria of the Son Jesus; still many people hardily believe this one.
There have been numerous claims of miracles by people of most Christian denominations, including but not limited to faith healings and casting out of demons. Miracle reports are especially widespread in Roman Catholics and Pentecostal or alluring churches.
They are all miracles as all the miracles we have heard of or known outside Christian faith/Religion. In today’s Christianity some people practice an act to forge a miracle just to draw crowds and gain followers and popularity (Alluring). Some church members know and are taught that when a particular church prophet raises his hands as in a prayer for the church, they must fall in false pretences. Instead they must not waste their time but consult with Khokhovula to get true, real and powerful miraculous powers. From the origin of religion to date, you cannot run your congregation profitable without being gifted spiritual and miraculously. In Christianity and early Christianity Dreams interpretation and Performing of Miracles worked as saviors to some religious people according to the bible. Three guys survived life sentence and persecution and death with performing miracles and dream interpretation. This is found in the book of Daniel in the Old Testament. Belshazare, Mishael and Azaria (Daniel, Mishack and Abedinego. There are many miracles mentioned in the bible including that of Moses and Pharaoh and of Elijah and Elisha.
The Catholic Church recognizes miracles as being works of God, either directly, or through the prayers and intercessions of a specific saint or saints. There is usually a specific purpose connected to a miracle, e.g. the conversion of a person or persons to the Catholic faith or the construction of a church desired by God. The Catholic Church has recognized several events as miracles, some of them occurring in modern times. Before a person can be accepted as a saint, they must be confirmed as having performed two miracles. Another miracle approved by the Church is the Miracle of the Sun, which occurred near Fatima, Portugal where about100, 000 people, who were gathered at a cove near Fátima, witnessed the sun faded, change colors, spin, dance about in the sky, and appear to plummet to earth, radiating great heat in the process. After a shot event, the ground and the people’s clothing, which had been drenched by a previous rainstorm, were both dry and the rescue of Portuguese sailors from a violent sea storm were all considered miracles by God.
In addition to these, the Catholic Church attributes miraculous causes to many otherwise inexplicable phenomena on a case-by-case basis. Only after all other possible explanations have proven inadequate may the Church assume Divine intervention and declare the miracle worthy of veneration by the faithful. The Church does not, however, enjoin belief in any extra-Scriptural miracle as an Article of faith as necessary for Salvation.
In full description of the meaning of Miracles
These works that are sometimes done by God outside the usual order assigned to things are wont to be called miracles: because we are astonished at a thing when we see an effect without knowing the cause. And since at times one and the same cause is known to some and unknown to others, it happens that of several who see an effect, some are astonished and some not: thus an astronomer is not astonished when he sees an eclipse of the sun, for he knows the cause; whereas one who is ignorant of this science must needs wonder, since he knows not the cause. Wherefore it is wonderful to the latter but not to the former. Accordingly a thing is wonderful simply, when its cause is hidden simply: and this is what we mean by a miracle: something, to wit, that is wonderful in itself and not only in respect of this person or that. Now God is the cause which is hidden to every man simply: for we have proved above that in this state of life no man can comprehend Him by his intellect. Therefore properly speaking miracles are works done outside the order usually observed in things.
Of these miracles there are various degrees and orders. The highest degree in miracles comprises those works wherein something is done, that nature can never do: for instance, that a goat is made to give birth to a cow, that the sun recede or stand still, that the sea be divided and make way to passers by. Among these there is a certain order: for the greater the work done by God, and the further it is removed from the capability of nature, the greater the miracle: thus it is a greater miracle that the sun is made to rise from the west and set in the east or south, than that the waters be divided or boiled without fire.
Miracles belongs to those whereby God does something that nature can do, but not in the same order: thus it is a work of nature that an animal live, see and walk: but that an animal live after being dead, see after being blind, walk after being lame, this nature cannot do, but God does these things sometimes by a miracle. Among these miracles also, there are degrees, according as the thing done is further removed from the faculty of nature. I t is the same with today’s people; miracles are done in their degrees and it all depends on the miraculous gift of a person
God does what is wont to be done by the operation of nature, but without the operation of the natural principles: for instance when by the power of God a man is cured of a fever that nature is able to cure; or when it rains without the operation of the principles of nature.
When Ichadon was executed on the 15th day of the 9th month in 527, his prophecy was fulfilled; the earth shook, the sun was darkened, beautiful flowers rained from the sky, his severed head flew to the sacred Geumgang mountains, and milk instead of blood sprayed 100 feet in the air from his beheaded corpse. The omen was accepted by the opposing court officials as a manifestation of heaven’s approval, and Buddhism was made the state religion in 527 CE. The Honchō Hokke Reigenki (c. 1040) of Japan contains a collection of Buddhist miracle stories. Miracles play an important role in the veneration of Buddhist relics in Southern Asia.
In Hinduism, miracles are focused on episodes of liberation of the spirit. A key example is the revelation of Kirishna to Ariana, wherein Krishna persuades Arjuna to rejoin the battle against his cousins by briefly and miraculously giving Arjuna the power to see the true scope of the Universe, and its sustainment within Krishna, which requires divine vision. This is a typical situation in Hindu mythology wherein “wondrous acts are performed for the purpose of bringing spiritual liberation to those who witness or read about them.”
Hindu knowledgeables have criticized both expectation and reliance on miracles as cheats, situations where people have sought to earn a benefit without doing the work necessary to merit it. Miracles continue to be occasionally reported in the practice of Hinduism, with an example of a miracle modernly reported in Hinduism being the Hindu milk miracle of September 1995, with additional occurrences in 2006 and 2010, wherein statues of certain Hindu deities were seen to drink milk offered to them.
Muhammad’s ascent into the Heavens is a journey known as the Mir’aj. Muhammad’s face is veiled, a common practice in Islamic art.
Islamic view of miracles and the miracles of Muhhamad
“Miracle” in the Qur’an can be defined as a supernatural intervention in the life of human beings. According to this definition, miracles are present “in a threefold sense: in sacred history, in connection with Muhhamad himself and in relation to revelation”. The Qur’an does not use the technical Arabic word for miracle (Muʿd̲j̲iza) literally meaning “that by means of which [the Prophet] confounds, overwhelms, his opponents”. It rather uses the term ‘Ayah’ (literally meaning sign). The term Ayah is used in the Qur’an in the above-mentioned threefold sense: it refers to the “verses” of the Qur’an (believed to be the divine speech in human language; presented by Muhhamad as his chief Miracle); as well as to miracles of it and the signs (particularly those of creation). And this relate to the Christian description of miracles as ‘Signs’
To defend the possibility of miracles and God’s omnipotence against the encroachment of the independent secondary causes, some medieval Muslim theologians rejected the idea of cause and effect in essence, but accepted it as something that facilitates humankind’s investigation and comprehension of natural processes. They argued that the nature was composed of uniform atoms that were “re-created” at every instant by God. Thus if the soil was to fall, God would have to create and re-create the accident of heaviness for as long as the soil was to fall. For Muslim theologians, the laws of nature were only the customary sequence of apparent causes: customs of God.
Sufi biographical literature records claims of miraculous accounts of men and women. The miraculous powers of the Sufi holy men includes firasa (Clairvoyance), the ability to disappear from sight, to become completely invisible and practice buruz (exteriorization). The holy men reportedly tame wild beasts and go across long distances in a very short time span. They could also produce food and rain in seasons of drought, heal the sick and help barren women conceive.
Remark for the above mentioned Islamic miracles
Even in this world today, there are people who perform miracles or claim to as those of Islam/Moslem of old, Early Christian and of other belief faith types of old times differing in their kind but all these people don’t approve of the miracles performed or done those of the different religion type. One always consider miracles done by those of other religions falsified which make people outside religions and miracle world wonder if there is anything like miracles in the real world, But I Khokhovula, me Lenn Morton Ndebele have done some miracles and have helped people in many religious faith to do them. So miracles do exists in their different levels of power and nature with different religious people and saints.
Descriptions of miracles
(Hebrew) Examples include prophets, such as Elijah who performed miracles like the raising of the widow’s dead son (1 Kings 17:17–24) and Elisha whose miracles include multiplying the poor widow’s jar of oil (2 Kings 4:1–7) and restoring to life the son of the woman of Shunem (2 Kings 4:18–37). The Torah describes many miracles related to Moses during his time as a prophet and the Exodus of the Israelites. Dividing the red Sea and facilitating the Plagues of Egypt; are among the most famous miracles.
During the first century BCE, a variety of religious movements and splinter groups developed amongst the Jews in Judea. A number of individuals claimed to be miracle workers in the tradition of Moses, Elijah, and Elisha, the Jewish prophets. The Talmud provides some examples of such Jewish miracle workers, one of whom is Honi HaM’agel, who was famous for his ability to successfully pray for rain.
Most Chasidic communities are ubiquitous with tales of miracles that follow, a spiritual audience with a: barren women become pregnant, cancer tumors shrink, and wayward children become sanctimonious. Many Hasidim claim that miracles can take place in merit of partaking of the Shirayim (the leftovers from the Rebbe’s meal), such as miraculous healing or blessings of wealth or goodness.
Remark to the whole Hebrew and Judaism Miracles philosophy
In all times they have thought they are the only people and better people that any other people with better miracles than any other religion faith beliefs; Now many of their writings in the bible as stated in the book of John and many in the bible, they do recognize miracles by other Gods or Deities; but they always claim theirs are pure, theirs are blessed, yes of course they might be blessed by their God when at the same time those of the opposite are blessed by their own Gods/Deities and gods or may be even more efficient and powerful, who knows.
Elijah is said to have lit fire for the burnt offerings with miracles, Elisha is said to have called miracle Hyenas to tear apart a boys who poke fun at him because of his almost complete hairless head, this is a miracle and an evil one by a so called righteous man; but it is like other miracles a miracle, he gained fame and more fame through it, and to date people read about it in the bible.
Miracle performing is a competition
The reason people of different religion type disapprove of the miracles performed by those differing in their religion faith belief type is because of competition. Miracles are the center of powers to all religions concerning fans and fellowship, people form the beginning of mankind have been known to hold more on miraculous works done than any other practices in their religious beliefs, without miracle powers in faith beliefs there is No Saint, No leader, No big brand name like that of Jesus and Muhhamad of the Moslems, there is absolutely No Messiah without miracles.
What is a miracle?
A miracle is a phenomenon not explained by known laws of nature. Criteria for classifying an event as a miracle vary. Often a religious text such as the Bible or Quran states that a miracle occurred as signs or powers of their God through Saints and religious leaders and prophets or through God himself, and believers accept this as a fact.
Healing chronic diseases, chasing evil spirits, bringing wealth out of the blues, winning dangerous and impossible wars, making the limp walk, changing water into wine, miracle money; Jesus takes money for an offering from the fish’s mouth- If it was some else from a different faith it wouldn’t even appear in any writing today, these so called chosen people would not give it credit.
If a witch put or plant something invisible in someone’s homestead to attack an d harm them and you remove it and it looses its magic of invisibility an d is seen by people with their bare eyes it means you have done a miracle; If people keep invisible magic snakes for wealth or what ever impure spiritual purposes and you remove and demolish their negative magic powers means you are miraculous; If you save and heal people from unknown diseases that even confuse hospitals and all other healing methods may be without any medicament means that you are miraculous; If you can touch a person with just a word of command and expel some dirty spirits and sicknesses and problems it as well means you are miraculous; If can fight an enemy possibly win him/her by even death without you having gone to him/her or used any physical weapon means you are miraculous; If you can send a bird or a monkey or something to do something for you on your behalf with it may be being invisible means you are miraculous; If you can send a goblin or so that it destroys a video and audio tape which has the evidence of a certain court case or anything of that nature means you are miraculous.
Prophets, Sangomas, all the spiritualists in your belief types as you differ in your diversity, you need to be miraculous, and otherwise you won’t make it to the top.
