How to Operate in Miracles
By Al Collins
When Jesus preached, what happened?
“Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.” Matthew 9:35
When Paul preached, what happened?
“And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:1-5
We are taught in God’s Word, that when we preach the Kingdom of God to people, it WILL BE accompanied with demonstrations of God’s power!
But Al, I’ve heard many a preacher preach and there were no miracles. Yeah, me too! Rarely do traditional “churches” allow God to do miracles after the preaching. Most “churches” think miracles done by Christians ended 2000 years ago. Most “churches” that I’ve been to, roll straight into taking offerings after a “sermon”. God is given a back seat to the religious program set by the leader. Besides not believing in miracles, people don’t give miracles a chance to manifest! Let God do it!
Every group of Christians should be doing miracles. Every group should be equipping each other (Ephesians 4:11-16).
Strategic preaching and miracles have nothing to do with diplomas; ordination; titles; charismatic preachers; megachurches; music; politics; religion; and/or fancy productions.
You don’t need to go to “special” conferences, to be “anointed”, “appointed” or “imparted to”, to be able to have miracles through you happen, nor to receive one! Let the Holy Spirit in you, operate!
Preach messages of God’s Kingdom and THEN, let God confirm what you’ve said about Him and His Kingdom, which He will do with signs following.
“And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.” Mark 16: 15-20
Every Christian has the power and authority and should be preaching this way to everyone, every time and they will receive results! It’s an absolute truth from God to you!
Talk to someone or group about Jesus and the Kingdom of God and then let God prove that His Gospel is true by letting Him work miracles. For instance, ask if anyone needs a healing and then let God back you up. You can wait for the Holy Spirit to give a Word of Knowledge about what He wants to do.
If you’re timid to start, try this with a family member or friend (especially one that needs a healing). Preach Jesus, perhaps a healing message that He is our Healer and that we, as His disciples, have been given this same ability, and that signs accompany preaching to confirm His Word. Ask the Holy Spirit what He wants to do. It might be to lay your hands on them to command the healing to back up your Gospel message.
Don’t give up if nothing happens right away. Don’t give in to any doubts that the evil realm throws at you. Be persistent in faith.
Preach Jesus and lift Him up and THEN He will work miracles! Let Him!
Start operating in miracles! It’s God’s will for your life!

Thanks so much Servant of the Most High God AL Collins.This message is very encouraging some of us. I have tried several time by the grace of God to do this and a number of deliverance and healing have taken place.Sometimes i noticed that while either leading prayers or just an exaltation or Bible study i could notice people weeping or shedding tears while others vomiting. Though being a brother in the house of God but the moment they will call me to lead in intercession there will be manifestation of evil spirit in the lives of people. By the time we finish praying a number of people in the church will experience freedom,healing and uplifted .Therefore, i totally agree with your message and please be informed that i choose you to be one of my mentor after my first encounter with your book Xtreme Big Game Hunting since 2011.I know people ask me how can it be possible to be mentored by someone you have never met before, my answer usually is simple…the Holy spirit makes me understand every messages he sends in my email address…time will come when they will know who influenced my Christianity(Spiritual growth) and growth in my calling.
