Q. I was wondering how the disciples and those with them were able to heal and cast out evil spirits much like Jesus did. It seemed like the Holy Spirit was working through them powerfully.The Holy Spirit would also come upon everyone in a very powerful and evident way. Why do we not hear of anything remotely close to this happening today?
A. I can personally attest to the fact that the Holy Spirit does work in powerful and evident ways today just like He did then. But as it was in the Lord’s time His power is limited by unbelief. Remember, in His hometown among His own neighbors the Lord was constrained from working miracles by their lack of faith (Mark 6:4-6). Today that’s the case in most of the World.
