Jesus exclaimed, ” The only miracle you will be given is the miracle of the prophet Jonah. ” Matthew 12:39
Some teachers of the law and some Pharisees wanted to see Jesus perform a miracle. Jesus exclaimed that the only miracle be given was the miracle of prophet Jonah. In fact they had already seen a lot of miracles; water turned into wine, the feeding of the multitude, and Lazarus being raised from death. Yet, due to unbelief, they wanted to see a new miracle.
In the same way that Jonah spent three days and nights in the big fish, so would the Son of Man spend three days and nights in the death of earth. On Judgement Day the people of Nineveh would stand up and accuse them because they turned from their sins when they heard Jonah preached, and Jesus told them that there was something here, now greater than Jonah! The Son of Man before them.
We are all very individual persons and we look at thing very differently. Our characters are unique and altitudes never the same. Some believers wanted miracles to prove the power of God and many see miracles as the risen Lord in their midst. No doubt, symbols are necessary for faith strengthening, but it is always say, for those who believe, the demand for miracles is not necessary; miracles are with you and follow you wherever you go. Revealing the greatness of God and Jesus being alive over death, mysterious!
Miracles always happen when you believe.
