Supernatural relates to being above or beyond the natural. You operate in another realm but still you are here on earth.
The supernatural I am talking about here is that of God, the Father, God, the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”
John 3:3-5 KJV
Nicodemus saw that the way Jesus was teaching was completely different with them. He taught with authority, He taught with power and Wisdom so he arranged to see Jesus when other were in bed
Do you know what, they are some people who doesn't want to believe that you serve a mighty God in public. Do you know that even when you talk about this God the know what you will be talking about but because of the environment they are in and people surrounding them they come to you during the night.
They are people that criticise you during the day but during the night they come for help.
They are people that laugh at you during the day but during the night they come to laugh with you. I am here today to tell you the solution to some of the things that you are going through that Jesus went through but was able to conquer because He accessed the supernatural.
There are 2 supernatural- of God and of devil and number one key to access God's supernatural realm is being born again.
Our natural man can't access the things of the supernatural.
Nicodemus wanted to know more of where Jesus came from and who He was but did want to get too involved. Jesus just opened his eyes to say what you are asking to access can't be done in the natural,
“Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.”
1 Corinthians 2:12-15 KJV
Being natural could only limit you to see things naturally. Being natural causes you to be angry with a person when you are supposed to discern that there is another force working behind it. "Get thee behind me satan"
When you are real born again you know the things that freely given to you - in other words you are not anxious of tomorrow because Jesus has gone ahead of you - John 14:2-3, Matt 6:23ff
There is life eternal freely given to you so when things are putting pressure on you, what do you do, you switch to the realm of the spirit and start to see and understand why you are going under such persecution. Jesus despised the shame and suffering of the present moment by looking beyond and seeing the joy, crown laying, waiting ahead of Him, Hebrew 12:2.
You have to be in the spirit always to access and bring down the supernatural in the natural. The Holy Spirit we were teaching about last month give you access to the supernatural that even the dry bones that are very dry will come to life - Ezekiel 37:1-10, Acts 7:55
The natural man cannot access the supernatural. You can't be carnal and think you are walking in the will of God. To be carnally minded is death,
“For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
Romans 8:6 KJV
To be spiritual is to be superior to the affairs of life. Your supernatural access has been granted the moment Christ said, "In your hands I commit my spirit", the moment you receive and believe in Christ Jesus the world to supernatural of God was opened - John 1:12.
We now carry the Divine nature which equates us to God, we have now divine abilities to do the supernatural. That's why when we pray over the sick they are healed, the prisoners to the wickedness are freed, slaves to fleshly lusts and lusts of eyes are freed - 1 Peter 1:3-4
How do access the Supernatural.
Giving to the house of God.
This is one of the manipulated area in Christian communities and in the body of Christ and yet it is the powerful tool to open the supernatural supplies of heaven.
Solomon sacrificed a 1000 burnt offering and that very night heavens open -
“And Solomon went up thither to the brasen altar before the Lord, which was at the tabernacle of the congregation, and offered a thousand burnt offerings upon it. In that night did God appear unto Solomon, and said unto him, Ask what I shall give thee." - 2 Chronicles 1:6-7 KJV
Our giving nowadays is just not motivated by love for God but what I will get after giving hence there is nothing coming because it was done with wrong motive.
God had to ask him what do you want? Can we get to that point where we do things not because there is something you will get but out of love.
In our homes, family you do things because of the love of God not what you will get out of it.
God loves a cheerful giver - 2 Corinthians 9:7, without the cheerful heart the windows of heavens remain shut. No matter how you do things if it's not from your heart, it's unnoticed before God.
What made Cornelius to be noticed was
2. Giving with a cheerful heart
3. Giving consistently
These 3 opens the supernatural that while Peter was still speaking the heavens open and pour out the Holy Spirit. The outpouring of the Spirit of God is real when people open their hearts and the word is being spoken..
Abraham gave his only son the one he loved - why do I say he gave, to Abraham Isaac was already dead... Hebrew 11:19,
“By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.”
Hebrews 11:17-19 KJV
What you consider dead in God's eyes it's alive!
Many are looking for the spectacular and missing the supernatural that is there all the Tim..
What do I give
1. Yourself - spirit, soul and body. Without the giving of yourself everything else will be difficult to part with. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, Proverbs 23:26
2. Your time with God is important
3. Your resources-
