When the Churches on Trial radio broadcast aired...at the beginning of each broadcast Hubert would come on with an "opening statement". Today, on this Blog I'd like to use the following writing as an opening statement...about one of God's greatest miracles.
Christ performs miracles every minute, every hour, and every day. One of the greatest miracles that ever occurred was the changed heart and life of a sinner. Perhaps you personally have experienced this miracle! If so Glory to God! The miracle is... God can take the worst criminal or the worst sinner on this planet.... and convert him to a right standing to His divine Holiness by the power of Divine Grace. The miracle of a converted heart and life of a sinner "proves" the power of a resurrected Lord. The forgiveness of sins and the removal of all guilt from the human conscience "proves" the redemptive power of Christ at Calvary.
The morally changed heart and life of a sinner is the best "evidence" any of us have that Christ lives, and changes men (today) from the Throneroom. The morally changed heart of a sinner and power to do right by living an obedient life in the eyes of God is a miracle that comes straight from the Throneroom! Why? A man without Christ is a rebel against God! The evidence of this miracle from the Throneroom "proves" my Saviour lives, and changes any man from any sinful condition.
Hubert Lindsey taught about these miracles from the Throneroom, his whole life in the ministry. So does this writer! There is miracle changing power from a living Christ that we preach about. This miracle can happen anywhere, anytime, to anyone... who "touches" the person of Christ. When a sinner touches Christ something happens! When Christ touches man with the changing power of God something happens! These happenings are modern day miracles from the Throneroom! These miracles happen everyday, every minute, every hour. I like what Jesus said during his earthly ministry...when a certain lady touched him...
Luke 8:45-48...And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him and how she was healed immediately. And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole;
Jesus was God during His earthly ministry...Jesus is God now from the Throneroom. Get beyond the cross and experience a living miracle! Testify to his changing power from unholiness to holiness! Tell others about how Christ performs this miracle from the Throneroom. Be a witness for an exalted Christ...today...March 10, 2009.
