Miracles Do Not Indicate - According to the Bible – Prophethood, Never Mind Divinity
I wonder that Christians consider Jesus’ (PBUH) miracles as evidence of his divinity, since the Holy Bible declares that other people had performed such great miracles, without considering that as evidence of their divinity.
The Holy Bible confirms these miracles and many more magnificent miracles, to all those who believe in Jesus. Jesus (PBUH) said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do.”(John 14/12). This means that those who believe in Allah (S.W) can heal the sick, give life to the dead, and can do greater than that; thus, it is not evidence of divinity.
Performing miracles- according to the Bible- cannot be evidence for a true belief or of the honesty of its performer. Then, how can it be proof of prophethood or divinity? Jesus (PBUH) mentioned that liars could perform miracles and claim doing it by his name.
Quoting Jesus (PBUH), Matthew said, “Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name? And then will I declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.”(Matthew 7/21-23)
Those hypocrites and liars could do miracles, but it did not prove their honesty, nor will it prove their prophethood or divinity.
Further more, according to the Holy Bible, even a sinner can perform many miracles and wonders, and that does not prove his honesty or divinity, for he or she performs these miracles and wonders, by the aid of Satan and his power. Paul said, “The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders.”(Thessalonians (2) 2/9).
