Experience the Supernatural
I strongly believe that it will take the manifestation of the supernatural for the church of Jesus to fulfill her eternal destiny in this end time. The vast majority of the people we want to reach for Christ need more than just a rhetorical gospel but an encounter with God’s power for them to believe. We must be proof producers of the reality of the living Jesus that we proclaim, for the world to embrace the glorious gospel that will set them free.
“Then said Jesus unto him, except you see sign and wonders, you will not believe “ – John 4:48
“And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles” –Acts 2:43
As a believer in Christ, this is the time our light must shine brighter than ever to bring change to the darkness in our world but it will take the invasion of the supernatural to achieve this. Our world is in turmoil, being plagued with unresolved problems of diseases that have no cure, economic crisis at personal and national level, continuous rise in violence and immorality, fear of terrorism has paralyzed the peace in our communities and unfortunately the government does not have any answer or a lasting solution to any of these problems and much more.
However, the good news is that the believers in Christ and the body of Christ have been empowered by God to make the difference and to positively influence our society by His power. So, our world needs REAL answers to solve her problems but the people must experience or have encounter with the supernatural to be drawn to the person of Christ and his principles that will change their lives.
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses……” – Acts 1:8
“And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power ” – 1Cor.2:4
“For the earnest expectation of the creature wait for the manifestation of the sons of God” – Romans 8:19
I will like to also mention that it will take the experience of the authentic supernatural power of God by the unbelievers in the world to know the difference between the true power of God from satanic deception and lies that have held them bound for ages. Many have been led astray by lying wonders from Satan (Acts 8:4-13). Witchcraft, magic, Spiritism, occultism, voodoo etc. all of these operations perpetuated by Satanic powers have confused the people and turned their heart away from the true God who only must be worshipped. Satan’s lies must be exposed and the believers are the ones commissioned to silence the devil and his cohorts and also to demonstrate the true supernatural power of the living God through the authority in the name of Jesus.
“But there was a certain man called Simon, who previously practiced sorcery in the city and astonished the people of Samaria claiming that he was someone great to whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, “This man is the great power of God” And they heeded him because he had astonished them with his sorceries for a long time…………….Then Simon also believed and when he was baptized he continued with Phillip and was amazed, seeing the miracles and signs which were done” – Acts.8:9-13
I will encourage you to take time to read the entire chapter of Acts 8 to fully understand the heart of my message. Simon had deceived the entire city for a very long time until Phillip showed up and the difference became very clear. Satan has no option than to give up when matured sons of God that know who they are, show up and enforce their authority and anointing in Christ ( 1 John 4:4,Psalm 82:5-7, Psalm 149:5-9, Psalm 62:11, Psalm 66:3).
I want to challenge you to seek to know the supernatural life you have received in Christ and the anointing for exploits that resides within you. We are the answer the world is waiting for, we are the world changers and above all we are the ones to manifest the divine power of God because we have become supernatural in the new birth and we have the authority to function like Christ to produce supernatural experiences (Romans 5:17, John 14:12, 1John 4:17, Acts 3:6).
How Do I Experience The Supernatural?
Let me first say that this question in its primitive level has ‘nothing’ to do with a born again, spirit filled believer because he is already a new creation, a partaker of God’s divine nature who has become a supernatural being in Christ. So, in a primary sense, this question will first be relevant to individuals that do not have eternal life. So the answer to the question is very simple “if you want to be wet, get inside the water”! You cannot have one and not get the other. If you want to experience the supernatural in your life, that is, experience the extraordinary and above the normal life in your health, finances etc. then yoke yourself, embrace, receive and step into something SUPER (the person and the power of Jesus Christ) that will change and elevate your living. When you receive Christ you will experience the supernatural. He will change you so that you can become a change agent. Christ, the anointed one and his anointing, will break all yoke in your life, heal you and set you free from all bondages. Moreover, He will empower you by His spirit to go out to the world and
produce the same results and set other people free.
“But as many as received him, to them he gave power to BECOME the sons of God….” – John 1:12
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a NEW CREATION: old things have passed away behold ALL things have become NEW” – 1 Corinthians 5:17
“Then he called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over ALL demons and to cure diseases……. And to heal the sick” – Luke 19: 1-2
Releasing the Supernatural
As l mentioned above, if you are born again the supernatural ability of God is in your life so you have already ‘experienced’ the supernatural (spiritually speaking) (the legal side of your redemption) but you still need to ‘experience’ the supernatural in your daily living (the vital side of your redemption) for its physical manifestation. You need to manifest from the spirit realm or from within you, God’s power to meet your daily needs or challenges. So, health, wealth, creative ideas, wisdom, faith and all other spiritual forces in your recreated human spirit, birthed by the Holy Spirit, must be released to meet your needs and the needs of the people around you. You must learn how to release the power of God in you so that you experience in your natural life what you have already in the spirit (Philippians 2:13c, Eph.1:3, Colo.1:27, Eph.3:20, 2Tim.1:7, Rom.8:11).
My friend, if you are going to experience the supernatural or release the Zoe life of God from the inside of you to meet your needs and the needs of others in your world, you must first ACCEPT and BELIEVE you have the POWER of God in you. You must become fully persuaded that you already have the deposit of divine ability in you, if you are born and filled with the Holy Spirit. You must have faith in what God’s word has said concerning you as a superman/superwoman in Christ.
“That the sharing of your faith may become effective by the ACKNOWLEDGMENT of everything which is in you in Christ Jesus” – Philemon 1:6
“Then Peter said……but what l do have l give you…..” – Acts 3:6
Therefore, your mind must be renewed to this truth so that your daily confession and actions can line up with your belief. You will know when your mind has been renewed because you will begin to think biblically in line with God’s word expecting a different outcome from other people. Where they see sickness you see health. Where they see roadblocks you see open doors. So as you believe the supernatural word of God, meditate and confess and then act on it daily, you will activate the power of God that will produce supernatural experiences. Moreover, praying in the Spirit will energize your faith and also release the spiritual power within you (Jude 1:20). Fasting acts as a catalyst to the release of the power as well from your spirit. So, as you yield to the Holy Spirit, and learn to walk in the truth of God’s word and use your authority as the believer, with all necessary spiritual discipline, you will be able to manifest the power of God in your life in different degrees to the glory of God (Rom.1:16-17, 2 Cor.3:18). Let me just close by saying that you cannot have a glorious life or enjoy the abundant life without the supernatural.
Neither can you reign in life and dominate your world without experiencing the supernatural. Our world cannot be transformed without it and the church of Jesus cannot make lasting impact without the supernatural. It is time to live supernaturally!
