Summary: I believe that God wants to give us a fresh revelation of who He is in us as the Church, and who the Church is in Him.
A Supernatural Lifestyle
Are you hungry for the reality of the Kingdom of God to invade earth? I have often ask God for a gift of hunger for the things pertaining to His Kingdom.
This story can be compared to church life. Just because I may go to church, I still may not be a born-again believer. Attending church could just make me very religious. But we know that religion does not save. It is our Savior Christ Jesus who saves.
When we receive Christ, we receive a new identity and we are no longer sinners but saints! We step out of darkness and into the light. I believe that God wants to give us a fresh revelation of who He is in us as the Church, and who the Church is in Him.
The normal Christian life is to live a life in the supernatural.
God is not looking for a vessel of gold or silver to use, but is simply looking for willing vessels, young or old.
He looks at our heart.
From the revelation that we are sons and daughters of Christ, we can walk and do what He said we could do.
I want to talk about living in the supernatural where signs and wonders become normal. Years ago, I thought that we had to have a special gift on our lives to see people healed.
Then I read Mark 16:15-18 And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved, but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: in
My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover"
These verses say that believers will lay their hands on the sick and that the sick will recover.
I began to think to myself, "Something is not right here, and I know that God’s word is true."
I knew that I was a believer, but this sign of healing was not evident in my life. I would tell myself over and over, "I am a believer and you are going to lay your hands on the sick and see them recover!"
Even though I did not see breakthrough at first, it did not change God’s word in my mind.
If we create our theology and doctrine around our personal experience of discouragement, we lower the gospel to a humanistic mentality of words that can demonstrate no power. One of the greatest sins in the Church is doubt and unbelief.
I have heard it said, "The Holy Spirit is imprisoned in unbelieving believers." He wants to use us more than we want Him to use us. It is not wrong to dream about being used by God.
It’s been several years since I first began to dream about being used by God in the realm of the supernatural.
I had begun to think about the "greater works." If we can see the "greater works" and believe in them, they will become reality.
Although this was not taking place in the natural, I knew it was my inheritance as a believer.
Signs and wonders are not for entertainment but are to lead us into a deeper revelation of Christ Himself. To expect a life of powerlessness is to accept a lower-grade gospel. If Jesus had done all the miracles only as God (not as man), then it would be impossible for us to do the same. It’s not good enough for us to only display one side of Christianity like good character and fruit of the Spirit. The Kingdom of God is not just in words but in power.
