Doubt Scuttles Miracles

Written by Joe Dardano

In the miracles performed by Jesus Christ, he always made sure that those who added doubt and misery to a apparent negative scenario were not around before be performed a miracle. The feeling of doubt, calamity and despair do not bode well for miracles and the triumph of Nature by Spirit to take place. In the town of Nain, Jesus brought back to life a man whose mother was a widow. Jesus told her, “do not weep” (Luke 7:13) After saying that, Jesus raised the man from his death. An act of God must take place in complete faith. The same thing happened when the twelve year old daughter of the leader of the Synagogue was ill. She apparently died and when Jesus arrived at her home, he steered away the mourners and those wailing and weeping (Luke 8:52). Then and only then, a miracle occurred, raising the young girl back to life. This is why when the angel Gabriel appeared to Zechariah and told him that Elizabeth would bear him a son, that Zechariah’s unbelief rendered him mute until John was born. Zechariah’s unbelief had no place in the sacred realm of family and faith whereby a miraculous child was on his way to be a prophet and prepare the way for the Savior of the world. If someone was there with no faith, it would interfere with the miracle, so Zechariah was muted.
