Why do we have men seek and flock after the supernatural always? It is because the supernatural has answer to all of man’s challenge Mk. 10:27; Lk. 8:43-44; Acts 8:6-8. In essence, no matter how bad the issue is, when man gain access to the supernatural, he is guaranteed to have solution. The good news is that by new birth every believer carries the supernatural in him 1Jn. 4:4; Col. 1:27; Mk. 16:17. We only need to understand how to unlock it into manifestation.
There is this testimony of a sister in our International Headquarter church who was rushed to the hospital and diagnose with ruptured appendicitis. Medically, this is fatal. She was rejected by the hospital; meanwhile they anointed her with the oil. After 3 days, the hospital out of fulfilling all righteousness decided to attend to her. The doctors eventually carried out an operation on her, which turned out successful. The doctor later told her that she serve a living God.
How to Unlock the Supernatural.
The understanding of who we are in Christ is the trigger for the supernatural inside us to manifest in reality Psa. 119:144. If one does not know who he is, he will be relegated to who he is not. Therefore, who am I?
Man’s challenge on the earth is with the powers of darkness, which essentially are the principalities and powers Eph. 6:12. Redemption re-positions the believer far above them, thereby bringing all principalities and powers under his authority and control Eph. 2:5-6; 1:20-21.
Every man belongs to either of these two (2) kingdoms; the kingdom of darkness or the kingdom of light. The kingdom of darkness has Satan as the head, and God is the head over the kingdom of light; every man by natural birth belongs to the kingdom of darkness, redemption is what translates the believer into the kingdom of light Col. 1:13. Just as the dominion of light over darkness is instant and unquestionable any time and any day so is the kingdom of darkness subject to the kingdom of light Jn. 1:5; Rms. 16:20.
Life is a battlefield, with the demand to fight and win, for one to enjoy the glorious life 1Tim. 6:12. Redemption makes the believer to become stronger than the oppositions, thereby turning him into an overcomer in the battles of life Lk. 11:21-22; 1Jn. 4:4; 5:4. In essence, by new birth the believer is never to lose any battle again in life. For example, David defeated Goliath on the strength of understanding his superiority, not of his might or armoury 1Sam. 17:26,45-47.
The hand of God at work is the secret behind supernatural manifestations Mk. 16:20; Jn. 3:2; 14:10; Acts 10:38. Faith is the weapon with which the believer invokes the hand of God to work Isa. 53:1; Lk. 1:45. In essence, faith puts the believer in command of the supernatural Mk. 9:23; Mat. 8:8-10; 15:21-22. The level of faith at work in the believer is what defines his level of command of the supernatural Acts 24:14; 19:11-12; Php. 4:13.
What is Faith?
Faith is confidence in God that makes the believer to put God’s word to work expecting it to deliver the result promised 1Kgs. 17:8-16; Mat. 14:24-29.
How do we build faith?
How do we engage the power of faith to deliver the supernatural?
In conclusion, the supernatural is ordained to be the natural realm for every believer, but it has remained a strange place to many because of ignorance. All that we need is the knowledge of how to make it become our normal experience.
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.
