TEXT: 2Tim.2:19-23; Rom.9:18-24; Luke 9:23-26; Jer.51:20-23

Being an instrument of wonders can be understood in the context of being an agent through which extraordinary or miraculous events occur. 

1. Conveying God’s Power:

   Example: Moses parting the Red Sea to lead the Israelites to safety.

   Scripture: Exodus 14:21–22

   “And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.”

2. Healing and Restoration:

   Example: The Apostle Peter healing a man who was lame from birth in the name of Jesus Christ.

   Scripture: Acts 3:6–7

   “Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.”

3. Proclaiming God’s Messages:

   Example: The prophet Isaiah prophesying about the birth of Jesus, the Messiah.

   Scripture: Isaiah 9:6

   “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

4. Demonstrating God’s Love and Mercy:

   Example: The parable of the Good Samaritan, where a man shows compassion to a stranger in need.

   Scripture: Luke 10:33–37

   “But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.”

5. Manifesting God’s Glory:

   Example: The Transfiguration of Jesus Christ on the mountain, where his divine nature and glory were revealed to Peter, James, and John.

   Scripture: Matthew 17:2

   “And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.”


The earnest expectation of the creature waits for the manifestation of the sons of God, who will make exploits and show the glory of God (Rom.8:19). 

These are men who, through their light, will deliver nations from the captivity of sin and flesh (Isa.60:1-3). 

However, God’s standard for recruiting men into the place of power and wonder has never changed (heb.13:8). 

God’s standard is sanctification and consecration (Isa.66:2; 2Tim.2:19). 

While nations seek God, God seeks for a man who is purged of all filthiness, and desires God to be an instrument in His hand (Ezek.22:30).

Until Abraham was emptied of all but faith in God, the promise was not fulfilled (Rom.4:3);.

the Israelites had to wait for over 400years until Moses surrendered what was in his hand, esteeming the reproach of Christ as greater riches than the treasures in Egypt (Heb.11:26); .

the heavens and the earth were kept in silence until Jesus, as a lamb, was slaughtered for the salvation of all, and to open the book and lose the seal (Rev.5:2-7).

The freewill of man has left him with two options: either to be a vessel of dishonour, or that of honour, which is cleaned and consecrated to God for noble purposes. 

The choice you make depends on who you believe and whose instruction you follow, whether the corruption of the flesh or the path of life in Jesus Christ through the fellowship of the Spirit (Gal.5:16-17)


  1. Who is an instrument of wonder, and what are the good works they are prepared to do?

An instrument of wonder is someone who is willing and prepared to be used by God to bring about extraordinary, miraculous, or wondrous acts for the glory of God and the benefit of others. 

In a broader sense, an instrument of wonder is someone who allows God to work through them to bring about positive and transformative change in the lives of others and to further God’s purposes on earth.

Good works that instruments of wonder are prepared to do include acts of compassion, kindness, mercy, healing, proclaiming God’s message, demonstrating God’s love, and serving others in ways that reflect God’s character and purposes.

 They are willing to be vessels through which God’s power, love, and goodness can be demonstrated to those around them.

In being prepared to do good works, instruments of wonder seek to align their hearts, minds, and actions with God’s will and to be responsive to the leading of the Holy Spirit.

 They are characterized by a readiness to be used by God, a willingness to step out in faith, and a commitment to living in obedience to God’s word.
