Why is the supernatural needed?
Hmmm…let’s see, are you or any one in your church sick? Do you know any one that needs a miracle? Do you know anyone that needs a word of wisdom or a word on knowledge? Just to get started!
What is the supernatural? In a nutshell – it is the Lord moving through people by the power of the Holy Spirit to fulfill His purpose on Earth. We are the temple of the Holy Spirit – with that being said, we are all called to be a vessel that will allow Heaven to invade the Earth with signs,wonders, healing and miracles.
I believe as we move in the supernatural – The only glory that can be given is unto the Lord Jesus. Only Heaven can perform such things – but He is looking for a people that will say. Here I am – work through me! There is no question when the supernatural is present. Man can not make up such things, nor can any man perform a genuine healing or miracle without the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Paul sets the model –
1 Corinthians 2:4
4 and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.
I never want to minister in persuasive words of wisdom – because they come out of my flesh and not the leading of His spirit – but I do want to minister in the demonstration of the Spirit and of power!
We as a body must realize that we are in a partnership with Heaven. Both Heaven and I have a role to play. To work with one another to bring a demonstration of His spirit and power may be seen that the faith of man will rest on the power of God.
The supernatural takes the focus off a man or woman and leads the one ministering too the foot of the Cross. We must realize that God set it up so that you and I would be a conduit for Heaven to be shown through the earth. Many fear this, because it is out of their comfort box they established for Jesus to stay in. It is shameful that the New Testament church has been around for over 2000 years and we stay struggle in allowing the Holy Spirit in…
You may walk in the supernatural today and do not even realize it…it is not just about healing and miracles. The Supernatural is all the workings of the Holy Spirit. If you move in any of the gifts that are spelled out in Romans or Corinthians, well my friends then you are walking in the power of the supernatural.
Many struggle with the word“supernatural” just think about how you encourage someone in the spirit, or you move in the gift of helps, or have the gift of leadership, or move in the gift of hospitality or so on, you can not fulfill such a gift without the anointing of the supernatural, period! You are co-laboring with God almighty and walking in His presence to meet the needs of those around you, today.
So why do we need the supernatural? Easy, many times you will see in the Word as the New Testament church was being established, they preached and signs, wonders, healing or miracles followed. Those men were open to the Holy Spirit. They were untrained. Meaning they did not have a four year program to go through, but on the spot training governed by the Holy Spirit?
Please don’t take it the wrong way,I believe in the school training if you feel led and there are good teachers out there that want to impart what the Lord has – but we must stay focused why we are going to school and not lose the goal – to win souls and allow the Holy Spirit to have His way.
May point is, God is looking to use anyone that is open and willing to be led by His spirit. It doesn’t matter what degree or the lack there of that one attains, the degree is granted when the heart is truly opened.
The need of the supernatural is so needed today. Think about all the sick,dying, hurting lost people – just around your life, now think about in your community, your reign, now your state…
Imagine a breakout in your church that brings and invasion of Heaven to earth that has healing and miracles –wouldn’t that take the reward of man and the Glory given to God?
Think about this, just a thought I had while writing this – “think about the power, glory and money that is given each year to the pharmaceutical companies – how that compares to the amount of Glory given to the Lord in your home and Church?”
Which one is on top? In many cases – the pharmaceutical companies– to many Christians put stock in them before going before Heaven to seek a supernatural touch – I am not against doctors at all – but we need to have are focus on who is the true Healer. My wife and I try to instill in our children who are 5 and 3 years old – that we go to Jesus before we go get any medicine – we have seen the Lord heal our kids– does it happen every time – no, but more often then not and that is why I keep pressing in – My God should be first…
That’s my thoughts for now…more to come!
