The angel told Gideon, “Go in this thy might…” Judges 6:14.
The thing that made Gideon a mighty man before God was the courage to DEFY powerless religion!
Gideon was right, and Yahweh approved. God has no use for a dead religious system either. The Lord stood by Gideon with manifestations of power. MIRACLES.
If idolatry is praying to a “god that cannot save” (Isa.45:20), how is that different from the powerless religion of professing Christians? If he can’t cure AIDS or Ebola, his arm is shortened!
We cannot conceive of the ministry of Jesus without him walking on water, raising the dead, opening blind eyes, and healing lepers.
Everyone knows that a Christ without MIRACLES is a false Christ!
