unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for their prayer is heard; and they wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name Johnâ€. Luke 1:18, â€œAnd Zacharias said unto the angel, â€˜Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my life well srticken in years.â€ Luke 1:19, â€œAnd THE ANGEL ANSWERING UNTO HIM, I AM GRABRIELâ€¦â€ Luke 1:20, â€œAND BEHOLD, THOU SHALL BE DUMB, AND NOT ABLE TO SPEAK, UNTIL THE DAY THAT THESE THINGS SHALL BE PERFORMED, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.â€ Luke 1:22, â€œAnd when he came out, HE COULD NOT SPEAK UNTO THEMâ€.Matthews 28:1-2, â€œNow after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Many Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. And, behold, THERE WAS A GREAT EARTHQUAKE, FOR AN ANGEL OF THE LORD DESCENDED FROM HEAVEN,a0AND ROLLED BACK THE STONE OF THE DOOR, and sat it.â€Acts 12:23, â€œThen immediately an angel of the Lord struck him, because he did not give glory to God. And he was eaten by worms and died.â€3) Angels could appear in somebodyâ€™s dream:Matthews 2:19, â€œâ€¦an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Josephâ€¦â€; Matthew 1:20, â€œâ€¦an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dreamâ€¦â€As angels could perform wonders, are there any strongest proves to show that those wonders in contemporary Charismatic Churches are from God? If someone in contemporary Charismatic Churcha0could prove it, we have to accept it. However, if nobody coulda0prove whether the existence of wonder in contemporary Charismatic Churches is from God or the Holy Spirit or Angels, there is a danger that one would comment that certain wonders are from God or from the Holy Spirit or from Jesus Christ and, in case if they are not and it would turn up that we have forced God or Jesus Christ or the Holy Spirit to bear the name of doer and indirectly we have abused the name of Jesus Christ or God or the Holy Spirit and this causes us to speak against Jesus Christ or God or the Holy Spirit indirectly.Could contemporary Charismatic Church claim thata0the miracles and wondera0they performa0ina0the name of Jesus Christ,a0isa0accompanied by correct teaching (in accordance with Godâ€™s Word) and righteous living?A good Christiana0performs a wonder through the name of Jesus Christ in the Church. Many audiences would claim that this be the work of God/Jesus Christ/the Holy Spirit. As fallen angels could perform wonders, i.e. Buddhists could perform wonders as it is listed in the Internet too. What if the wonders in contemporary Charismatic churches are not from God/Jesus Christ/the Holy Spirit, the surrounding audience that claims to be the work of the Holy Spirit/God/Jesus Christ, would have indirectly abused the name of each of them even though they might not be the one to do it and it indirectly causes the defamation of the name of God/Jesus Christ/the Holy Spirit and they might have grieved as a result of the whole church speaking against them since they might not do it. The abusing of the name of Jesus Christ/the Holy Spirit/God would cause the audience to commit continual sins as when and they address these be the work of God.Can a Christian or a Catholics claim that he has followed the correct teaching and righteous living when day by day and month by month and year by year seeing people keep on claiming the wonders in contemporary Charismatic Churches to be the work of God/Jesus Christ/the Holy Spirit without telling them the danger that they would have sinned against God/Jesus Christ/the Holy Spirit what if the so-called, wonders, might not be their work then?For holy bark, you could see people running around the churches crazily to bark here and there.For Holy laughter, you could see people laugh without stopping.For manifestation of the Spirit, you see people roll from one place to another without knowing what he/she has done after performing.All these are not mentioned in the book of Acts.A number of people in the church mention that they receive revelation from God through words of knowledge, prophecy, tongues speaking, words of wisdom. Many prophets arose previously claimed that year 2000 and 1987 were the end of the world. However, the year before year 2000 and 1987, none of these people that claim to receive so-called, special gifts of the Holy Spirit, say that these years 2000 and 1987 are not the end of the world. If it is the work of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit should have informed all these people to correct their mistakes.LUKE 9:49-50 ABOUT THOSE THAT DO NOT FOLLOW JESUS BUT COULD PERFORM WONDERS IN JESUS' NAMELuke 9:49, 50 (TCNT), Hereupon John said: â€œSir, we saw a man driving out demons by using your name, and we tried to prevent him, because he does not follow you with us.â€ â€œNone of you must prevent him,â€ Jesus said to John; â€œhe who is not against you is for you.â€Were these people that were mentioned in Luke 9:49-50 to be the disciples of Jesusa0since it is mentioned that theya0did not follow Jesus? The following are the verses to prove that God's people would surely follow Jesus:John 10:27, â€œMy sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.â€John 10:3, â€œTo him the porter openeth, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calleth his own sheep by nam, and leadeth them outâ€.From the above verses, it is obvious that the sheep will surely follow the shepherd, Jesus.As the phrase, he is not against you is for you, is mentioned in Luke 9:49 instead of the phrase, he is not against you is for me Jesus, it does not show that all these people that could use Jesus to perform miracles were for Jesus but for us, disciples, especially Jesus had mentioned clearly in John 10:27 and 10:3 that Christians would surely follow Jesus. The possible interpetation for Luk 9:49 for him to mention that they were for us that it might be that they could assist us in bringing outsiders to the attention of Jesus Christ for our evangelism. However, they are not for Jesus since they do not follow Jesus since they would definitely follow Jesus if they are for Jesus.Indeed the people as mentioned in Luke 9:49-50 that could perform wonders in Jesusâ€™s name were not Godâ€™s people or else Jesus should have included these people ont top of the twelve disciples. Or in other words, if these people that could perform wonders in Jesusâ€™ name were Godâ€™s people, there would be more that twelve disciples instead of remaining to be twelve all the time during Jesusâ€™ mission and it proves the fact that Jesusâ€™ name could be abused to perform miracles. Or in other words, despite these people as mentioned in Luke 9:49-50 were not following Jesus and were not the disciples of Jesus, they could use Jesusâ€™ name to perform wonders.CASTING OUT DEMONS MIGHT NOT NECESSARILY CAUSE ONE TO HAVE DISTURBED BY DEMONS AS MENTIONED IN ACTS 19:13-16:Matthew 17:15-16, â€œLord have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.â€ Matthew 17:18-19, â€œAnd Jesus rebuked the devil and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, â€˜Why could not we cast him out?â€™ â€ Matthew 17:21, â€œHowbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.â€ From these verses, it is obvious that the failure in casting out demons might not necessarily cause one to be disturbed by demons as that is mentioned in Luke 9:49-50.PROOF THAT ANGELS COULD PERFORM MIRACULOUS HEALING AND THERE ARE FALLEN ANGELS TOO:John 5:3-4, â€œIn these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.â€â€From John 5:3-4, it shows that angels could heal various kinds of illnesses whether they are blinded, halt and withered. As angels could perform miraculous healings and there are so-called, fallen angels, it is irrational to jump into conclusion that certain illnesses be healed to be the work of God/Jesus Christ/the Holy Spirit since some wonders might be the work of angels and/or fallen angels.One might have quoted Luke 9:49-50 well that nobody should stop those people that perform miracles in Jesusâ€™ name. However, he shoulda0meditate Matthew 7:22-23 carefully again that the so-called people to use Jesusâ€™ name to perform wonders might be rejected by the Lord. For instance, if these people that are mentioned in Matthew 7:22-23 to use Jesusâ€™ name to perform wonders are the work of God/Jesus Christ/the Holy Spirit, there should not be any strong ground for Jesus to reject them. However, Jesus will reject them despite they do perform wonders in Jesusâ€™ name and there is a query the so-called wonders that they perform are from God. The following are the extracts:Matthew 7:22-23, â€œMany will say to me in that day, â€˜Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name, cast out demons in your name, and done many wonders in your name?â€™ And then I will declare to them, â€˜I never knew you; depart from me, you who practise lawlessness!â€™

Jesus Forgives and Heals a Paralyzed Man
Jesus stepped into a boat, crossed over and came to his own town. Some men brought to him a paralyzed man, lying on a mat. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the man, “Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven.”
At this, some of the teachers of the law said to themselves, “This fellow is blaspheming!”
Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said, “Why do you entertain evil thoughts in your hearts? Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.” So he said to the paralyzed man, “Get up, take your mat and go home.” Then the man got up and went home. When the crowd saw this, they were filled with awe; and they praised God, who had given such authority to man.
