The miracles in the process of salvation
How to understand the miracles?
Many people think that miracles are necessary to really believe in God. The opinion is that they allow us to understand the omnipotence of God. Especially the point is that He can do unbelievable and incomprehensible things that belong only to Him. On the one hand, people who think so that God created our world with all laws of physics, and on the other hand are convinced that he can freely break these laws. I understand, therefore, that in their opinion, the Creator is allowed everything, because he is Almighty. I am still worried about the fact that there are many people who believe in a non-reflective faith in God who created the world from nothing that is the first and most important miracle for them. I wrote about this creative work in the first chapters of this study.
Unfortunately, you can see that miracles do not always bring people closer to God. There are, after all, a great number of those who reject faith in God, though they have heard of various miracles. Jesus Himself performed many miracles in front of the Israelites, and yet they did not believe in Him and even accused Him of using some evil magical powers.
I would like to correct these views and make everyone aware of the basic fact that the Creator never breaks His laws, which also include the laws of physics and, more broadly, the laws of nature. Besides, He has no need to do this. Personally, based on the following explanations, I can say that I have not found any case in which God would break His lows.
As I discussed before, God created the world from His Infinite Energy (Energy of the First Cause). This Energy is His external attribute, which in turn is associated with His Inner Personality understood as the Spirit of God.
The Creator is the only being, that is the Original Being, which changes energy into matter according to the formula E = mc˛. This energy God not only used to create the entire material universe, but also has it at all times. Heavenly Father also destined her for His children when they attained personal perfection and together with Him they will shape the universe. This Energy from the Creator, although it originates from a world beyond time and space, is so powerful that it can interfere in the physical world. Today, the spiritual energy that people have is far too small to do what we call miracles. It would be possible only in cases in which God would grant us directly. Of course, some people, with the right talent and extraordinary spiritual power, can do things that are somewhat miraculous, but they are not.
Because Jesus attained personal perfection, He had access to Energy from God and could use it for direct action in the physical world, which produced effects considered miracles. These phenomena, however, took place parallel to the laws of physics and did not actually break them. Having access to the energy of God, Jesus could rule over matter by shaping it according to his will. For example, He could create hard ground under the feet while he walked on the water, which I mentioned earlier. In a slightly different situation, this Energy served Jesus to cast out evil spirits from healed people. It helped to bring heal people back to a normal, healthy state. God can also give this Energy to angels to do some important activities in the physical world. An example of this is the angel who broke the bars and freed St. Peter from prison. From this it follows that such a huge amount of energy, which is needed for the spiritualizing of the spiritual person or its interference in the physical world, can only come from God, because it is the absolute domain of the Creator.
God Himself does not directly interfere in our fallen world, for it has not been created according to His concept, and in addition is under Satan's control. However, one must realize that performing miracles within the world of Satan, or introducing God's Energy into it, is very risky. Of course, in exceptional situations, the use of this Energy is necessary. Jesus not only invaded the world of Satan, but also used God's energy. This must have caused a rematch from the "master of this world". It seems that for every intrusion into his sphere, Satan has to pay dearly. Jesus performed miracles in a situation where His teaching was not effective. But at the same time, these miracles strengthened the possibilities of Satan's negative influence on people. As a result, a vicious circle was created. The more miracles Jesus did, the more Satan could exercise his control over the fallen world, which weakened the effects of the teaching of the Son of God. In a sense, this situation influenced His crucifixion.
Satan absolutely guarded the zone of his influence. He created in his surrounding world his illegal space of lawlessness and still acts against the laws of God. This is his proper plane of action. Hell is his home. Jesus individually dealt with the hostility of Satan, and even during a temptation in the desert he proved his domination over him. This one, however, did not give up and further influenced the Israelites, which ended with the crucifixion of Jesus. It came to this, despite the fact that the Jewish people were waiting for the Messiah. It was a kind of "revenge" on Jesus. In the final analysis, the Son of God succeeded in converting this alleged defeat into His success in the form of the redemption of humanity, that is, the definite limitation of the current influence of the "master of this world" in the spiritual world.
Faith in God should not be based only on miracles. Perhaps they happen, because in this way the Bible presents various supernatural events. However, most of the phenomena described in it can be explained scientifically today, which many churches agree with. In most cases, when interpreting extraordinary events in nature, it turned out that the science was right.
So what are the miracles on the way to our personal salvation? Are they attracting people to God or are they going away from Him? It can be assumed that in most cases miracles strengthen the faith of people in God, because they think he is to be powerful and omnipotent. There are also those who do not believe in miracles and disregard the testimony of those who have a different opinion on this matter.
For sure, miracles are at first glance contrary to our common sense. Meanwhile, it is because people do not take into account the existence of God's energy, which concerns the vast majority of believers. For example, when we note a miraculous disappearance of a disease in a patient, we call such an event a miracle cure. Often this is done through people who have died in the opinion of sanctity, and now they can help other people. This is possible because certain illnesses can be caused by evil spiritual persons, and the removal of their influence leads to such "miraculous" healing. It is also possible that the Divine Energy transmitted by a person recognized as holy or by an angel, leads to the regression of the development of some disease in the direction opposite to its formation. Doctors, after stating this fact, can only just ascertain with surprise the complete disappearance of symptoms in a given patient. Most often, however, it is not them, but the patient speaks about the miracle.
Much confusion also causes the appearance of the Mother of Jesus, called by Christians Our Lady, in various places and in different ways. In addition, certain people with these revelations hear her voice, and even receive some instructions to make or predictions about the future of humanity. Of course, the She is the person who, after entering the spiritual world called paradise, works with Jesus and his apostles for the salvation of the world. She can therefore be blessed with God's Energy and create material phenomena in the physical world. Her activity certainly helps many Catholics to maintain their faith, regardless of whether they understand the real rules of the phenomena called by her that are called miracles or not. Certainly knowledge of Energy from God would further strengthen their faith. That is why I presented here my explanations regarding the creation of miracles.
