Miracles Were Performed

Jesus PowerThe Holy Spirit was given with immeasurable power to Jesus Christ as described by John 3.34, "For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit." Jesus claimed in Luke 4.18-19, that the power to do wonderful miracles and to make a public witness of the coming of God's kingdom was given to him by the Holy Spirit. He said, "The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor." Jesus was indeed electrified by the Holy Spirit and the power of God emanated from him.

Christians Immeasurable Power

BlessingThe Holy Spirit was also given to Christians to bring in the Gentile nations. According to Romans 15.8, "For I tell you that Christ has become a servant of the Jews on behalf of God's truth, so that the promises made to the patriarchs might be confirmed." Note here that the phrase, "the Jews" was described in the Greek text as "the circumcision."

Power of God

Spirit On JesusMiracles were performed in the power of God by Jesus witnesses in Acts 2.22. Peter addressed the crowd "Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know." Jesus statement in Matthew 12.28 claimed that it was by the Spirit that he cast out demons, "But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you."
