By redemption, the believer is ordained to enjoy the life of signs and wonders Isa. 8:18; Mk. 16:17. An individual at the point of experiencing salvation through accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour is translated from a mere person existing only in the physical world, into a spirit being with capacity to command the supernatural Col. 1:13-14. This translation is what initiates the believer into the world of signs and wonders.
What are Signs and Wonders?
Signs and wonders are the experiences that cannot be explained with natural, scientific, and human understanding, yet cannot be denied by men.
This order of life is what the believer has been introduced into by new birth; where his finance, health and everything about his life cannot be explained by men but cannot also be denied by them.
Scriptural Requirement for the Life of Signs and Wonders.
Every provision of God has the demand(s) to access it Deut. 28:1-2. For the life of signs and wonders, scriptures make us to understand that the commitment to kingdom advancement endeavours is the requirement. In essence, it is only believers who are committed to the pursuit of the advancement of God’s kingdom and church growth in prayer, soul winning and financial investment for the establishment of converts that will experience the life of signs and wonders in reality.
The Blessedness of Commitment to Kingdom Advancement Endeavours.
Favour is the cure to labour in life; when God’s favour is on a believer, he enjoys what others struggle for. The realm of signs and wonders is the realm of strange of favour.
Breakthrough is making progress in the face of obvious obstacles, which stops others. When we commit to kingdom advancement, nothing is strong enough again to hold one’s life down.
Fruitfulness in life is a reward from God, and it is in response to our engagement in advancing God’s kingdom. In essence, everyone that desires to be fruitful should become committed to kingdom advancement, and such will bring forth his desired fruits without fail.
There are believers who before they call in prayer, God has answered, these are those who are committed to advancing God’s kingdom as a lifestyle. When you make the choice to become committed to the pursuit of God’s kingdom advancement, you join that company.
Health is God’s will for every believer, and it means living without sickness, disease or weakness of any kind. A commitment to the advancement of God’s kingdom is the believer’s access to this experience.
The blessing of God is the key to the abundant life that Christ offers Gal. 3:13-14; Jn. 10:10; Pro. 10:22. But the access to God’s blessing is engagement in the advancement of His kingdom.
Every believer that is committed to the advancement of God’s kingdom has committed God to his protection in life.
The believer that commits to the advancement of God’s kingdom has committed God to supply all the needs of his life before they arise.
God’s will for His children is to live to a good old age. And a commitment to kingdom advancement is what empowers the believer to experience this blessing.
In conclusion, signs and wonders is our heritage as believer, but our access to this order of life is a function of how much we are committed to advance God’s kingdom. Therefore, a decision to pursue the advancement of God’s kingdom as a lifestyle is wisdom.
To anyone reading this that will love to give his/her life to Christ, pray this prayer out loud with me from your heart: “Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins; wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.”
Father, in the name of Jesus and by the Holy Spirit, empower my decision to pursue the advancement of your kingdom tirelessly to the end Acts 1:8.
