    Was there only a period of time in the Bible that miracles occurred.  Are Christians called to...

    cast out demons, heal the sick and resurrect the dead today, or was this only a period in the past?

    This is called a dispensational theology. Dispensationalists hold that though out history, God has related to man in different ways, and that miracles were in a past "dispensation".

    I am not a dispensationalist.  I personally have met at least five people who have been raised from the dead, and I was there when one of them was (See my hub, "You will do Greater Things than I".)

    I also know people who have been healed of documented medical diseases and conditions.  Same thing with demons.

    So, yes I believe we are called to do it today. And if it is impossible, ... that means we have to have God directly involved.
