Last time, the question came up, can Satan apostles and workers perform miracles like the Lord Jesus Apostles and workers.

I guess, what does it mean to be an apostle and what is a miracle.  

Ask everyone.  Bible definition from Strong’s, of both. 

Miracle G4592 sēmeion say-mi’-on

an indication, especially ceremonially or supernaturally: – miracle, sign, token, wonder.

Apostle G652 apostolos; means a delegate; specifically an ambassador of the Gospel; officially a commissioner of Christ (“apostle”), (with miraculous powers): – apostle, messenger, he that is sent.

Test – pi-rad’-zo: G3985; to test (objectively), that is, endeavor, scrutinize, entice, discipline: – assay, examine, go about, prove, tempt (-er), try.

Sin – ham-ar-tan’-o: G264 (as a negative particle); properly to miss the mark (and so not share in the prize), that is, (figuratively) to err, especially (morally) to sin: – for your faults, offend, sin, trespass.

We should point out that we are talking about 2 different class or group of individuals and a third group.  Ones who were baptize and had the Laying of Hands on and received the Holy Spirit.  These Scriptures are for them or us.  The other are the Satan leaders of religious groups who does miracles, and their membership are blinded by Satan.

Satan has the power to perform miracles and is the “father of lies” and wants nothing more than to deceive.

John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

Satan has his own apostles and workers.  The devil is sneaky and can even transform himself into an angel of light. 

2 Corinthians 11:13-15 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ.  (14)  And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.  (15)  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.

What does this really mean.  Does this explain why all major religions have had miracles reported by their followers, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, various Christian groups, etc. I looked many up and each has miracles in their teachings.

I would say, are these miracles “real”? Yes, by all means. But are they from the one, true Holy Spirit of God? No.

The Apostle Paul warns that Satan and his false apostles and deceitful workers disguises himself as an angel of light.  Demon based miracles are real, and it’s important to know that just because a miracle happens does not mean it is of God.

Test the Spirits. This is one of the reasons John instructs believers to “test” the spirits because of demon miracles: 

What does it mean to test the spirit.  We have our own opinion.

1 John 4:1-2 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.  (2)  This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God,

That person’s belief agrees with the with the truth of God’s Word. 

{1 John 2:22 – denies that Jesus is the Messiah; 1 Cor 12:3 – speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed or can say Jesus is Lord} 

1 John 4:3-4 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.  (4)  You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you {Lord Jesus} is greater than the one who {Satan} is in the world.

So, what does this really mean.  Someone may claim to be in God and perform miracles, but if their teaching is in opposition to God’s Word, or if they refuse to confess Jesus Christ as Lord, their miracles are demonic, because they are not coming from the right Spirit.

So what things are a test from the Scriptures. We need to know.

How do we really test them, are they following the commands of Jesus, are they following the Way of Life that Jesus taught and followed Himself, Is the Sabbath as test, Feast Days a test:

The real test is to compare what is being taught with the clear teaching of the Bible. The Bible alone is the Word of God; it alone is inspired and inerrant. Therefore, the way to test the spirits is to see if what is being taught is in line with the clear teaching of Scripture, not what some person says. The Scriptures alone is the standard by which all truth must be judged.

Remember Paul blinded someone, it was hard to believe.  Do you realize, our guardian angels can also blind people and do miracles.

Genesis 19:1 The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground.

Genesis 19:11 Then they {Angels of Lot} struck the men who were at the door of the house, young and old, with blindness so that they could not find the door.

They blinded the people.

Our guardian angels can destroy places with fire.

Genesis 19:13 because we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to the LORD against its people is so great that he has sent us to destroy it.”

Genesis 19:24-25 Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah; from the LORD out of the heavens.  (25)  Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, destroying all those living in the cities; and also the vegetation in the land.

If guardian angels can do this, what about demons doing miracles.

Remember, when Moses and Aaron went to deliver God’s message to Pharaoh, they performed a miracle.

Exodus 7:10 So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and did just as the LORD commanded. Aaron threw his staff down in front of Pharaoh and his officials, and it became a snake.

Egyptian magi were able to perform the exact same miracle

Exodus 7:11 Pharaoh then summoned wise men and sorcerers, and the Egyptian magicians also did the same things by their secret arts:

God’s miracle was proven to be the most powerful.

Exodus 7:12 Each one threw down his staff and it became a snake. But Aaron’s staff swallowed up their staffs.

The main point to note is that the magicians or religious leaders were readily, able to mimic a God-ordained miracle with a satanic miracle.

Did not Lord Jesus warned about false prophets in the end times who “will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive.

Matthew 24:24 For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

Paul told the Thessalonians that, Though Satan does not have the ability to perform genuine miracles, he is able to produce counterfeit miracles or lying wonders.

2 Thessalonians 2:9-10 The coming of the lawless one will be accompanied by the power of Satan. He will use every kind of power, including miraculous signs, lying wonders, (10) and every type of evil to deceive those who are dying, those who refused to love the truth that would save them.

These are deceptive works – not the real thing.

We should be aware of the reality of demon / satan miracles so as not to be deceived by false teachers.

Demon / Satan miracles are real and they happen on a regular basis. There is no need for us to be fearful of demon miracles.

But this also doesn’t mean we can turn a blind eye to them. As believers in Jesus Christ, we must remain ready in our discernment and “test everything; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil” so that we do not give into the charms of a false spirit.

1 Thessalonians 5:21-22  but test them all; hold on to what is good,  (22)  reject every kind of evil.

Did you hear or see this, this was on display the other night, February 05, 2023, the 65th Grammy awards.  Devil-horned Sam Smith, ‘hellkeeper’ Kim Petras’ satanic ‘Unholy’ performance outrages viewers, ‘Mocking Christianity;’ This music industry’s biggest night took an “Unholy” turn Sunday.  It was bad.  Devil worshipper people, in present and at home, saying it was good and fun.

Revelation 13:2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.

Revelation 13:7 It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.  {granted like Job}

Revelation 13:12-13 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.  (13)  He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.

What about the attack on Job from Satan, but you remember, Satan had to have the approval or permission by God to do it.  So, we know Satan can bring down fire from heaven and control the wind.

Job 1:12 The LORD said to Satan, “Very well, then, everything he has is in your power, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.” Then Satan went out from the presence of the LORD.

Job 1:16 While he was still speaking, another also came and said, “The fire of God fell from heaven and burned up the sheep and the servants, and consumed them; and I alone have escaped to tell you!”

Job 1:18-19 While he was still speaking, yet another messenger came and said, “Your sons and daughters were feasting and drinking wine at the oldest brother’s house,  (19)  when suddenly a mighty wind swept in from the desert and struck the four corners of the house. It collapsed on them and they are dead, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!”

So Satan does control fire and wind. 

Revelation 13:14 And deceives them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

Revelation 16:13-14 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.  (14)  For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. 

Dragon – Satan, beast – head of the military, false prophet – spiritual leader 

Why frogs:  plague of frogs in Egypt.  {Exo 8:5};  Remember the frogs went everywhere, bedrooms, kitchen, etc. dirty, stir up for war and bloodshed 

Revelation 19:20  And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Beast, false prophet, Real people

These verses we just covered demonstrate that the devil is active in producing miracles as a means of deception. 

A miracle is something that is distinctive and supernatural. This could be from a source that is either good (from God) or evil (from the devil). This is why we must try the spirits to see their source.  Only those from God will be speaking according to Lord Jesus Word. 

Isaiah 8:20 To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

Therefore, we must be able to discern spiritual things.

1 Corinthians 2:13-14 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.  (14)  But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

The study of God’s Word will help us divide what is true from what is false.

2 Timothy 2:15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

What is really all about with miracles, it does not matter what or who does the miracle, if the person does not teach what the Scriptures teach, it is not of God, but of the devil or his workers. 

Sin just means, miss the mark. The Holy Spirit will always direct us towards Lord Jesus and direct us in that direction.   {North, West direction}

Finally, remember that Demon based miracles are real and they do occur, and it’s important to know that just because a miracle happens does not mean it is of God. 

It is our responsibility to make sure that we do not give in to them. We must keep our Bibles open and study daily and put God’s revealed truth ahead of any miracle we may see.

With all this we covered, the Scriptures are talking about the leaders of groups, workers who teach and does miracles.   Their members are blinded by Satan.  God will hold these people responsible.  {2 Cor 4:4} {Rom 11:7}   

This is a warning for all Christians {you and me} who has the Holy Spirit in them, if possible, even the elect will be deceive without understanding the Scriptures and testing the workers over their miracles.  What do they really teach.  We have to understand.
