Approved Magics/Miracles/Crafts

Yesus and his apostles could teleport themselves and the apostle Thomas could fly in the skies after his mission in India. But they were using approved “magics” as well as knowledge (speak all kind of languages) from the Holy Spirit, who they received from Yesus/Yeshua. Yesus could even change shape.

New International Version

Acts 4:7) They had Peter and John brought before them and began to question them: “By what power or what name did you do this?” 8) Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Appears to His Disciples

Out of sudden Yesus was standing among the disciples!

John 20:19 On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said,“Peace be with you!” 20 After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.

21 Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.”22 And with that He breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.

The Purpose of John’s Gospel

John 20:30 Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. 31 But these are written, that you may continue to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

John 20:30-31 Expanded Bible (EXB)              Why John Wrote This Book

30 Jesus [therefore] did many other ·miracles [signs; 2:11] in the presence of his ·followers [disciples] that are not written in this book.31 But these are written so that you may ·believe [or keep on believing] that Jesus is the Christ [C Greek: Christos, for Hebrew Mashiach, the “anointed one”], the Son of God. Then, by believing, you may have life through his name.

BED BUGS ~ Wow!

60 Now on the first day we arrived at a deserted inn, and when we were at a loss for a bed for John, we saw a droll matter. There was one bedstead lying somewhere there without coverings, whereon we spread the cloaks which we were wearing, and we prayed him to lie down upon it and rest, while the rest of us all slept upon the floor. But he when he lay down was troubled by the bugs, and as they continued to become yet more troublesome to him, when it was now about the middle of the night, in the hearing of us all he said to them: I say unto you, O bugs, behave yourselves, one and all, and leave your abode for this night and remain quiet in one place, and keep your distance from the servants of God. And as we laughed, and went on talking for some time, John addressed himself to sleep; and we, talking low, gave him no disturbance (or, thanks to him we were not disturbed).

61 But when the day was now dawning I arose first, and with me Verus and Andronicus, and we saw at the door of the house which we had taken a great number of bugs standing, and while we wondered at the great sight of them, and all the brethren were roused up because of them, John continued sleeping. And when he was awaked we declared to him what we had seen. And he (John) sat up on the bed and looked at them and said: Since ye have well behaved yourselves in hearkening to my rebuke, come unto your place. And when he had said this, and risen from the bed, the bugs running from the door hasted to the bed and climbed up by the legs thereof and disappeared into the joints. And John said again: This creature hearkened unto the voice of a man, and abode by itself and was quiet and trespassed not; but we which hear the voice and commandments of God disobey and are light-minded: and for how long?

Matthew 14:19Then he told the people to sit down on the grass. Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, looked up toward heaven, and blessed them. Then, breaking the loaves into pieces, he gave the bread to the disciples, who distributed it to the people. 20They all ate as much as they wanted, and afterward, the disciples picked up twelve baskets of leftovers. 21About 5,000 men were fed that day, in addition to all the women and children! New Living Translation

New International Version
Mark 9:25 When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene, he rebuked the impure (unclean, evil) spirit. “You deaf and mute spirit,” he said, “I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.”

Bartimaeus Receives His Sight

New American Standard Bible

Mark10:51And answering him, Jesus said, “What do you want Me to do for you?” And the blind man said to Him, “Rabboni, I want to regain my sight!” 52And Jesus said to him, “Go; your faith has made you well.” Immediately he regained his sight and began following Him on the road.

Jesus Walks on Water

Matthew 14:22Immediately after this, Jesus insisted that his disciples get back into the boat and cross to the other side of the lake, while he sent the people home. 23After sending them home, he went up into the hills by himself to pray. Night fell while he was there alone. 24Meanwhile, the disciples were in trouble far away from land, for a strong wind had risen, and they were fighting heavy waves. 25About three o’clock in the morningb Jesus came toward them, walking on the water. 26When the disciples saw him walking on the water, they were terrified. In their fear, they cried out, “It’s a ghost!”

27But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage. I am here!c

28Then Peter called to him, “Lord, if it’s really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water.”

29“Yes, come,” Jesus said.

So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. 30But when he saw the strongd wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted.

31Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him. “You have so little faith,” Jesus said.“Why did you doubt me?”

32When they climbed back into the boat, the wind stopped. 33Then the disciples worshiped him. “You really are the Son of God!” they exclaimed.

Jesus Heals a Sick Boy

Expanded Bible (EXB) Matthew 17:14 When Jesus and his ·followers [disciples] came back to the crowd, a man came to Jesus and ·bowed [knelt] before him. 15 The man said, “Lord, have mercy on my son. He ·has epilepsy [has seizures; or is demented/a lunatic; C the word for epilepsy could also mean “moonstruck” or demented; Mark 9:17 says the boy was demon possessed] and is suffering ·very much [terribly], because he often falls into the fire or into the water.16 I brought him to your ·followers [disciples], but they could not ·cure[heal] him.”

17 Jesus answered, “·You people have no faith, and your lives are all wrong[L O faithless/unbelieving and perverse/corrupt generation]. How long must I ·put up [stay; L be] with you? How long must I ·continue to be patient[put up] with you? Bring the boy here to me.” 18 Jesus ·commanded[reprimanded; rebuked] the demon and it came out of him, and the boy was healed from that ·time on [moment; L hour].

19 The ·followers [disciples] came to Jesus when he was alone and asked, “Why couldn’t we ·force [drive; cast] the demon out?”

20 Jesus answered, “Because ·your faith is too small [you have so little faith]. I tell you the truth, if your faith is ·as big as [as small as; the size of; L as; like] a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. ·All things will be possible [L Nothing would be impossible] for you. |21 That kind of spirit comes out only if you use prayer and fasting.|”[a]

Jesus Heals a Sick Boy

Mark 9 Expanded Bible (EXB)

14 When Jesus, Peter, James, and John came back to the other ·followers[disciples], they saw a great crowd around them and the ·teachers of the law [scribes] arguing with them. 15 But as soon as the crowd saw Jesus, the people were ·surprised [amazed] and ran to welcome him.

16 Jesus asked, “What are you arguing about?”

17 A man [in the crowd] answered, “Teacher, I brought my son to you. He has an evil spirit in him that ·stops him from talking [makes him mute].18 When the spirit attacks him, it throws him on the ground. Then my son foams at the mouth, grinds his teeth, and becomes ·very stiff [rigid]. I asked your ·followers [disciples] to ·force [drive; cast] the evil spirit out, but they couldn’t.”

19 Jesus answered, “You ·people have no faith [unbelieving/faithless generation]. How long must I stay with you? How long must I put up with you? Bring the boy to me.”

20 So ·the followers [L they] brought him to Jesus. As soon as the evil spirit saw Jesus, it ·made the boy lose control of himself [threw the boy into convulsions], and he fell down and rolled on the ground, foaming at the mouth.

21 Jesus asked the boy’s father, “How long has this been happening?”

The father answered, “Since ·he was very young [childhood]. 22 The spirit often throws him into a fire or into water to ·kill [destroy] him. If you can do anything for him, please have ·pity [compassion] on us and help us.”

23 Jesus said to the father, “You said, ‘If you can!’ All things are possible for the one who believes.”

24 Immediately the father cried out, “I do believe! Help ·me to believe more [me not to doubt; me overcome my unbelief; L my unbelief]!”

25 When Jesus saw that a crowd was quickly gathering, he ·ordered[rebuked] the ·evil [defiling; L unclean] spirit, saying, “You deaf and mute spirit, I command you to come out of this boy and never enter him again!”

26 The evil spirit screamed and ·caused the boy to fall on the ground again[convulsed him violently]. Then the spirit came out. The boy looked as if he were dead, and many people said, “He is dead!” 27 But Jesus took hold of the boy’s hand and helped him to stand up.

28 When Jesus went into the house, his ·followers [disciples] began asking him privately, “Why couldn’t we ·force [drive; cast] that evil spirit out?”

29 Jesus answered, “That kind of spirit can only be forced out by prayer.”[a]

Matthew 21:21Then Jesus told them, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don’t doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. 22You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it.”

English Standard Version  Mark 1:8 I have baptized you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”

32And evening having come, when the sun went down, they began bringing to Him all those being sick and those being possessed by demons33And all the city was gathered together at the door. 34And He healed many being sick of various diseases, and He cast out many demons. And He would not allow the demons to speak, because they knew Him.

New Living Translation   Mark 3:11 And whenever those possessed by evil spirits caught sight of him, the spirits would throw them to the ground in front of him shrieking, “You are the Son of God!”

New Living Translation
Mark 16:12 Afterward He appeared in a different form to two of his followers who were walking from Jerusalem into the country.

Douay-Rheims Bible
Mark 16:12 And after that He appeared in another shape to two of them walking, as they were going into the country.

Because the body starts to decompose very fast after death. Not so funny walking around with a rotten body filled with worms. That is why Yeshua got a new body.

Mark 16:9-20 New Life Version (NLV)

The Followers of Jesus Do Not Believe He Was Raised from the Dead

Mark 16:9 It was early on the first day of the week when Jesus was raised from the dead. Mary Magdalene saw Him first. He had put seven demons out of her. 10 She went and told His followers. They were crying because of much sorrow. 11 But they did not believe her when she said she had seen Him alive.

12 After that He was seen again by two of His followers as they walked into the country. He did not look like He had looked before to these two people. 13 They went and told it to the others. The others did not believe them.

14 Later He was seen by the eleven followers as they were eating. He spoke to them with sharp words because they did not believe and their hearts were hard. And they did not believe the others who had seen Him since He had been raised from the dead.

Jesus Sends His Followers to Preach

15 He said to them, “You are to go to all the world and preach the Good News to every person. 16 He who puts his trust in Me and is baptized will be saved from the punishment of sin. But he who does not put his trust in Me is guilty and will be punished forever. 17 These special powerful works will be done by those who have put their trust in Me. In My name they will put out demons. They will speak with languages they have never learned. 18 They will pick up snakes. If they drink any poison, it will not hurt them. They will put their hands on the sick and they will be healed.”

These gifts were from the Good God Yahawah.

19 After Jesus had talked to them, He was taken up into heaven. He sat down on the right side of God.

20 The followers went from there and preached everywhere. The Lord worked with them. The Lord showed that the Word of God was true by the special works they had power to do.
