Now Miracles Testament Old
One verse stands out starkly to me.
"For a trump shall sound both long and loud, even as upon Mount Sinai, and all the earth shall quake, and they shall come forth-yea, even the dead which died in me, to receive a crown of righteousness, and to be clothed upon, even as I am, to be with me, that we may be one."
Here it shows that we will have some of the "miracles" that were in the Exodus. Although when they happen we may long for the day when the earth didn't shake so much. There are many descriptions of what is to be in the last days in the book of Revelations that are very similar to the verbiage in Exodus, interesting huh?
Also, in a not to distant event we will have one of the greatest miracles of all to have many of the graves opened up and many be resurrected.

Old Testament Miracles Now
My gospel doctrine teacher said the same thing, that we don't need big miracles anymore because we have more faith, and that that's why they were called the Children of Israel, because they needed miracles to keep them going. I almost fell out of my chair! How can we sit back & think we're better than them & that we don't need miracles because we have the technology of man, or that we're so good that we don't need them? This is one of the reasons why the general authorities try so hard to get the members to read the Book of Mormon. The answer is in there & is very clear.
35 And now, my beloved brethren, if this be the case that these things are true which I have spoken unto you, and God will show unto you, with power and great glory at the last day, that they are true, and if they are true has the day of miracles ceased?
36 Or have angels ceased to appear unto the children of men? Or has he withheld the power of the Holy Ghost from them? Or will he, so long as time shall last, or the earth shall stand, or there shall be one man upon the face thereof to be saved?
37 Behold I say unto you, Nay; for it is by faith that miracles are wrought; and it is by faith that angels appear and minister unto men; wherefore, if these things have ceased wo be unto the children of men, for it is because of unbelief, and all is vain.
38 For no man can be saved, according to the words of Christ, save they shall have faith in his name; wherefore, if these things have ceased, then has faith ceased also; and awful is the state of man, for they are as though there had been no redemption made.
39 But behold, my beloved brethren, I judge better things of you, for I judge that ye have faith in Christ because of your meekness; for if ye have not faith in him then ye are not fit to be numbered among the people of his church.
19 And if there were miracles wrought then, why has God ceased to be a God of miracles and yet be an unchangeable Being? And behold, I say unto you he changeth not; if so he would cease to be God; and he ceaseth not to be God, and is a God of miracles.
20 And the reason why he ceaseth to do miracles among the children of men is because that they dwindle in unbelief, and depart from the right way, and know not the God in whom they should trust.
21 Behold, I say unto you that whoso believeth in Christ, doubting nothing, whatsoever he shall ask the Father in the name of Christ it shall be granted him; and this promise is unto all, even unto the ends of the earth.
When we begin to see a lack of miracles in our lives & in our wards, I think it's time we rethink how much effort & faith we really put into the gospel, and become as little children & believe. The miracles that occurred in the past were only of type of the great things we have in store for the future. The miracles that precede the Second Coming will be the greatest ever, and it's up to us if we have the faith to participate in these things or not.
