Operating in the supernatural

Main Text : Isaiah 8:18 – “Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion”
Isiah 55:9 – “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts”.
Isaiah 45:11, “Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.”

By redemption, we are meant to walk in the Supernatural. The supernatural is the natural habitat of every child of God. However, we must learn how to operate in that realm. The key to receiving the supernatural is first understanding how God operates. The bible tells us His ways are higher than our ways, and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts Isaiah 55:9. That’s not to say we could never understand God, but that we will always have another level of depth to the excellence of His knowledge.

In order for us to work in the supernatural, foundation is very important. We cannot operate in the supernatural without the love of God. Sometimes we get frustrated, impatient and angry when things don’t go well and question God when this happens but we need to refrain from this and remember it is only God that can help us, so there is a need for us to return to God in love and always be in his embrace (We cannot hold anything against God and expect Him to help us).

I Corinthians 2:9, “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” It is our level of love for God that will determine what He gives to us.

If we desire that testimony to come speedily, we need to walk steadfastly in the love of God. There is something God has reserved for us all, there’s something he has kept for us. It’s His heart desire to give us the very best. But we need to check our love for God. We cannot give God a conditional love, “If you bless me, I’ll serve you.” You must check to see if your heart is panting after Him, or after material things.

The truth is that if we can love Him wholeheartedly, there’s nothing He can hold back from us. He loves us without any reservation. He gave us His only son to prove to you that he loves us – John 3:16.

When we walk in love, we carry His presence, and we cannot carry His presence and be barren, ‘you cannot carry His presence and be in lack or want’. Even if people mock you, laugh or curse you or judge you, let them, and let God make and mould you.

Ephesians 3:17, “That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.”

It doesn’t matter what people have said about you, it doesn’t matter how you feel about yourself, He loves you. You must also walk in love. When you walk in love, you are supernaturally connected, you don’t need to struggle.

The Bible, says in 1 John 4:16, “And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.” In Mathew 6:33, the Bible says, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

TO OPERATE IN THE SUPERNATURAL:

New birth ushers us into the realm of the supernatural. We cannot walk in the realm of the supernatural in the energy of the flesh. We cannot walk in the supernatural when He is not living in us. Except He dwells in us, He cannot do His work through us. It is only on His own that He will empower to do sign and wonders. It is only His own that He will give what it takes to walk in the supernatural. It is not enough for us to just desire it, it is much more important for us to be initiated.

New birth is the starting point; it is the initiation, which is where it all begins. New birth re-positions us to command the supernatural. Ephesians 2:5-6, “Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by Grace ye are saved 😉 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus…” It is new birth that positions us and gives us a voice.It is new birth that takes us as a ‘nobody’ and restores what has been stolen from us.

Jeremiah 1:11-12, “Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree. Then said the Lord unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it”. We must be able to picture ourselves from scripture to know who we really are. If we know who we are, we will never be beggarly again. If we know who we are, we will achieve anything we set your hands to do. If we can see the picture God has painted concerning us in the scriptures, we will know that we can never be poor again, because Jesus was made poor for us to be rich. We would know that we are seated far above.

Abraham saw it, Moses saw it, Paul saw it, and Peter saw it! If we would see it, there would be no limit to our exploits in life. There is nothing natural about us when we are children of God, but until we can see it, we can’t walk in the reality of it. Understand this and begin to walk in the supernatural. John 10:34, “Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?”

PRINCIPLES FOR RECEIVING THE SUPERNATURAL:

“While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal”.-2 Corinthians 4:18

The key to receiving the supernatural is first understanding how God operates. The bible tells us His ways are higher than our ways, and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts Isaiah 55:9. That’s not to say we could never understand God, but that we will always have another level of depth to the excellence of His knowledge.

1.God is spirit & He operates in the spirit realm. – John 4:24 tells us that God is Spirit. Life begins in the spirit as all things come from God. The spirit realm is the supernatural realm. It is real.

2.The Spirit realm is the parent force of the natural realm. -Things were created first in the spirit realm before they are manifested in the natural. It contains all the raw material for what is required in the natural realm. Hebrews 11:3 tells us that the things we see were not made out of things that are visible. This establishes that the unseen realm possess all the substances before we see them in the natural realm. The world was made from something, we just can’t see it.

3.We must relate to God spiritually if we are to receive from Him. -Our soul must be educated to flow with the Spirit if we are to relate to God. Our mind, will, and emotions have been trained to see the here and now. We must train our imagination and intellect to see the supernatural and eternal.

4.The moment we are born again our spirit comes alive. – Our spirit is made from God. It draws its energy from God. It is loaded with the same substance that is in God. Our spirit is eternal, it contains the wisdom of God, it has every answer to every problem, it has vision, deliverance, focus, and all the power we need to live supernatural.

5.God has already created everything that we need and has placed them in the supernatural realm. – Ephesians 1:3 tell us that God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places. The heavenly places is the spiritual realm, the spiritual blessing is the parent force for what we need. Our total provision was placed in the super natural realm from the foundation of the world. (Hebrews 4:3) God does not create things after we pray because He already knew what we need before we asked. He knew from the foundation of the world. That is when He provided the answer, not when the need came in our lives. He has already provided it. We just can’t see it in the natural yet.

6.Everything that we need for quality of life is set aside in the spirit realm and it is connected to a promise in the Word.- Our quality of life is to be determined by the Word of God. In the Word He has promised healing (1 Peter 2:24), prosperity, (3 John 2), and abundant life (John 10:10).Every promise in the Word of God concerning finances has two elements; a principle and a promise. When we obey the principle, we are entitled to the promise. The spiritual reality of the promise is considered ours at the point of obedience.

7. We possess the promises in the Word by faith. – Faith is the currency of the supernatural. It is the medium of exchange between the seen and the unseen realms. Faith for the promise is found in the promise. Therefore every time we hear the promise, the potential to produce the promise is present. (Romans 10:17) Faith is stored in the heart as belief and released in the atmosphere by words. (Mark 11:23) The power to produce and receive in the supernatural lies in the heart. When faith is released it makes the transfer from the spirit realm, the realm of the unseen, to the natural realm where you can see it.

We must be committed to developing our faith: We are empowered to command the supernatural by faith. Jesus said: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father (John 14:12).
