Do Not Play With God

I read a story in the bible the other day which described the power that God gave to Jesus and his disciples. The power to heal, the power to rid people of illnesses. When people Jews and Gentiles saw these miracles they were taken back.  The true believers believed even more. However there were the skeptics who saw these miracles and tried to copy them. In one intense the high priest of the Jewish temple tried "laying hands" on some of the demon filled people copying what the disciples and Jesus were able to do. The demons literally spoke to these priest saying "I know Jesus, I know of his disciples, but I know not of you" and drove them crazy, running through the temple into the streets without clothes and screaming crazily. I say to you God and what he does is for him to do. No one else can fit those shoes. We have to acknowledge his power.  Of course there are skeptics even today. Trust, faith, and belief in our father is all that is required to prevent the" running through the streets in a crazy state"
1 John 3:1  See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
