A miracle is a supernatural act of power, but most often when people think of the term miraculous, they think of some special display of power that God performs just in special instances and for particular people or perhaps for a particular person and at a particular time. A criteria in a believerís mind that they would use to decide whether that event they witnessed would be from God or from Satan, keeping in mind that Satanís miracles would be the things a believer would expect God to do, not Satan to do. Divine miracles were always in scripture preformed to indicate or signify something. They were to indicate or signify or to be the signature of not only the massager but of the message. 


Satan distracts from the truth through the miraculous. The meaning of deception is to be distracted from the truth, to believe a lie. When a believer lines up the miracle beside the message, it will immediately tell them whether or not God or Satan is involved. And Paul makes that so easy by telling us what the message is. (2 Corinthians 11:3) The simplicity of Paulís message is total payment for sin, accomplished by Jesusí total sacrifice. The believer has therefore how much forgiveness? Total forgiveness! If the message isnít total forgiveness all upfront and all inclusive, the believer can bet itís not a miracle being preformed of God. Satanís miracles will never stand on this message, because they want to distract from this message.
