Jesus was not against signs at all, but against hardness of heart that was unwilling to believe unless personally entertained or impressed.
Jesus Christ is not against signs; the book of John is structured around eight signs. The Old Testament is full of signs that the Pharisees missed.
God equates belittling His signs with rejecting Him. The signs of the weekly and annual Sabbaths are emphasized by God, but commonly cast aside by men.
Jonah likely drowned; the great fish was his coffin rather than his prison. While Nineveh repented and was spared, Judah did not repent when Christ preached.
Correct actions become a sign—a witness—even without any preaching, which is why God's words are symbolically bound to the hand rather than the tongue.
Ever since the rainbow after the flood, God has been providing additional signs, particularly those that promise that He will provide a Savior and Redeemer.
Are numeric growth or miraculous signs sure indicators of God's presence? Before trying to determine where God is working, we must understand what God is doing.
All of us who are called by God are so precious in His sight that Jesus Christ, before we were even born, died for us, saving us from oblivion.
Technology makes us susceptible to the 'quick fix' mentality, expecting miraculous solutions to all problems, making us susceptible to false miracles.
If we ask God for protection from demonic influence, we cannot sit back passively; Satan always counterattacks. Evil must be displaced with good.
There is a diversity of gifts, but not everyone in the Body has the same gifts. It is presumptuous to attempt to use gifts one has not received from God.
The first sign in the book of John corrected the physical need for wine; the eighth sign of 153 fish corrected a spiritual need on the part of God's people.
John presents Jesus, not as a phantom emanation, but as the reality, transcending the shadows represented by the temporal physical life.
John and James were related, but still had to have the Messiah revealed to them. God is involved in the details of our lives as well as the great events in history.
The book of John provides a plethora of signs corroborating Christ's authenticity and also shows how to live as God would live if He were a man.
The apostle Paul teaches that tongues (languages) are only used to communicate intelligently, not gibberish. Tongues originally served as a sign for unbelievers.
Jesus teaches the difference between works that cause burdens (work that profanes the Sabbath) and works that relieve burdens. The Father and Son never stop working.
