If a person experienced a remarkable miracle of God's providence in his life, does this necessarily mean that he is saved? Why not?


Miraculous faith is the belief that a miracle will be done by or for me. It is possible for a person to possess miraculous faith while missing true saving faith.

The Lord Jesus miraculously healed many who had faith in His physical healing power, but not in His spiritual mercy. Judas Iscariot performed many miracles through miraculous faith.

    Explain how the following are scriptural examples of miraculous faith being exercised by persons who were missing true saving faith:

    Luke 17:12-15

    And as He entered into a certain village, there met Him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off:

    And they lifted up their voices, and said Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.

    And when He saw them, He said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.

    And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God.

    Matthew 7:21-23

    Not everyone that saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in heaven.

    Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy Name? and in Thy Name have cast out devils? and in Thy Name done many wonderful works?

    And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity.

    I Corinthians 13:2

    And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
