MIRACLE - An act or event which is above the natural order, done by special intervention of God for a religious end. Jesus Christ worked many miracles during His life on earth.
A sign whereby God supersedes the normal laws of nature in a mysterious way in order to manifest His power as Master of the universe. Jesus Christ performed many miracles - some showing His mastery over nature, others demonstrating His power over sin, disease, and death. The apostles continued to manifest the power of God through miracles. Healings, weeping icons, and other contemporary miracles also show His power in the world today. (Matt. 8:1-34; John 11:144; Acts 3:1-9.)
Acts which can be done by no power or art of man, but only by the almighty power of God: for example, to raise the dead.
