The events recorded in scripture that describe great acts of faith were not the description of a people who followed an existing biblical text. At the time of their obedience no text existed to tell them what to do. Once these events took place they were recorded in scripture as testimonials for our benefit, but not for our limitation. When God inspired people to write the bible He was not creating an experiential prison that limited the Church of the future to only what is seen in print. Even John said, “Jesus also did many other things. If they were all written down, I suppose the whole world could not contain the books that would be written.” (John 21:25)
As God’s Kingdom advances upon the earth many will move forward in faith doing things not recorded within the pages of scripture, but fully in line with the heart and truth of God. These unusual works of the Spirit, not listed within the pages of our bibles or within the bible reading program on our smart phones, will make us wonder, but hopefully not doubt that Jesus can do the “many other things” not recorded in the sacred text.
