‘You Can Do Miracles’ and other Myths
At Solution Ministries, Ron and Marilyn Marquardt want you to know that…
God wants you to live your dreams. He desires that your desires are fulfilled…He desires you to enter into rest and an effortless lifestyle of success.
Fulfilled desires? An effortless lifestyle of success? Really? Where does God say that in the Bible?
“If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you.” John 15:18,19
“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
“Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” James 1:2,3
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires” 2 Timothy 4:3
When they do evangelism training, rather than sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Marquardts teach their trainees to just share the ‘love of God’. They seem to have missed the fact that if people don’t hear the bad news (the wages of sin is death), they won’t know their need for the good news (that Jesus paid their wages).
The truth is, you can’t do miracles. Only God can. Jesus said, “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” John 15:5 [bold mine]
‘See now that I, I am He,
And there is no god besides Me;
It is I who put to death and give life.
I have wounded and it is I who heal,
And there is no one who can deliver from My hand.
We must be discerning sheep, and learn to measure everything with Scripture. Even ‘nice’ wolves are still…wolves. Can you spot the wolves in sheeps clothing? If not, study your Bible and ask God to grant you discernment.
