Miracles | The Institute for Creation Research

“And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible” (Mark 10:27).

When Paul saw that King Agrippa was skeptical concerning Christ’s resurrection, he asked: “Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead?” (Acts 26:8). After all, God created life in the first place.

The scientific establishment today, however, insists that naturalism must govern all phenomena and that real miracles—especially the supernatural creation of all things in the beginning—are impossible. So they seek to explain away all alleged miracles in terms of natural processes.

Actually, Jesus Himself cautioned against being credulous about miracles. “Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe” He noted sadly on one occasion (John 4:48). “An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign” (Matthew 12:39). He also warned that some miracles could be produced by non-Christian occultists. “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders” (Matthew 24:24).

Thus we should be quite cautious about reports of so-called miracles. God’s “laws of nature” are good laws and are essential for the orderly operation of His creation. But to say divine miracles are impossible is in effect denying that God exists, and even atheistic scientists will admit that they cannot prove there is no God.

The question is not “could the miracle happen?” but “did the miracle happen?” This is a question of historical—not scientific—evidence. There is more than adequate evidence that all the great miracles of the Bible—especially the special creation of the world and the bodily resurrection of Christ really took place just as recorded in the Bible.
