It is important to understand that Jesus was revealing Himself to be the Son of God through His miracles, even though He did not want to publicise His miracles. The fact that He was healing all those who came to Him surely never happened before and will never happen again. We can get into this false notion that we should carry the anointing that can heal all those whom we pray for, and some saints are even fasting and praying for that kind of anointing. Now, it is true that God uses His saints to perform miracles and thereby reveal the kingdom of God, but we can see a shift after Jesus left. The apostles did perform miracles but it was only on select occasions and they never really knew when that would happen. They were more ready to face opposition and trials than anything else and knew that it was through much suffering that they would bring glory to God. We should definitely expect miracles and should surely pray for it but the church should be more ‘tribulation’ ready than ‘miracle’ ready. God is building His church and extending His kingdom even through severe persecution. That may be even more glorious than anything else.
