Can I perform a miracle?

Here's the answer:

The miracles that we read about in the Old and New Testament served a specific purpose.

Miracles in the Bible were a sign or "proof." Moses performed miracles to prove to Pharaoh that he was a messenger of God. Jesus performed miracles to prove that He was indeed the Son of God. Each miracle in the Bible served a specific purpose. It wasn’t just a magic trick.

Since we have the Bible, there is not as much need for miracles. Some miracles are real and they are signs from God. But, there are also fake miracles and those do not come from God.

First John 4:1 says that we are to be careful to test the spirits to see if they are from God and that includes those that say that they can perform miracles. Why? Because there are false spirits and they perform false miracles in the world.

Bible Truth

"Dear friends, do not believe every spirit. Test the spirits to see if they belong to God. Many false prophets have gone out into the world" (1 John 4:1).

"God showed that this message is true by signs and wonders. He showed that it’s true by different kinds of miracles. God also showed that this message is true by the gifts of the Holy Spirit. God gave them out as it pleased him" (Hebrews 2:4).
