The new dominionist/reconstructionist leaders have formed loose associations within Christian activism and right-wing populism. The recent “Response” prayer rally organized by charismatic wing leaders, including Jim Garlow, who led the anti-marriage equality Proposition Eight campaign in California, is an example. The event was funded by Alice Patterson and Jim Garlow, and featured prophetess Cindy Jacobs, a prominent figure in territorial spiritual warfare prayer.
The apostles were given supernatural powers. They could cast out demons, heal the sick, and raise the dead. These abilities were given to them by God, to show them that they were authentic messengers of God. People who claimed to be speaking for God must have been genuine. The apostles could speak to God through their own experiences and speak directly to him. The apostles had the authority to cast out demons and heal the sick.
The Gospels describe many miracles that Jesus performed. These include healing a paralyzed man, stilling a storm, and walking on water. Jesus’ miracles demonstrated his authority over nature and caused people to worship him as the Son of God. The apostles, on the other hand, proclaimed him to be the Messiah. Bystanders held their noses as they witnessed these miracles. However, some critics say this is a deliberate attempt by the apostles to establish Jesus’ divinity.
