Where are the Miracles, Signs and Wonders?

Rod Shimabukuro


while God also bore witness by signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will. Hebrews 2:4


In this section/chapter 2 of Hebrews, Jesus the merciful and faithful high priest is the focal point. His life, suffering, death - as the deity, the son of God is what separates Jesus, from other gods and prophets.

• everything is subject to Jesus, nothing is outside of His control (v8) - He is Authority.
• Jesus is crowned with glory (v9)
• God the Father made Jesus perfect through suffering (10)
• Jesus destroyed the power of death, the devil, through His death. (14)

[17] Therefore he had to be made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. [18] For because he himself has suffered when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.

The above passages recognizes Jesus’ authority and supremacy which included suffering, giving, temptation. He experienced complete humanity to learn and “become” this faithful and merciful high priest.


The reason v4 stood out to me was because I still desire to see, experience, be used of God, seeing people miraculously healed. I want to see miracles, signs and wonders displayed by the Spirit of God. But I must remember...He distributes gifts as He wills (1 Cor 12:11) and Heb 2:4 says these miracles are distributed according to His will.

  • This I know! I must remain true and faithful to the Person of Jesus.
  • Remain committed to cultivating a healthy relationship with Him, as a Personal and holy God.
  • I must be careful not to seek the gifts and wonders more than the Giver who is Wonderful.
  • I want to experience His power - but am I will to experience suffering?


Dear Jesus - I’m beyond grateful for Your love and faithfulness - suffering, enduring temptation to become my faithful and merciful High Priest! Thank You! Miracles, signs and wonders...are in Your hands. Use me as You will. In the mean time, may I grow to know supreme and majestic Lord! WOW - I love You!
