Operating In The Supernatural Part 3

operating in the supernatural part 3

Every natural occurrence has a supernatural antecedent, and the supernatural is the foundation of life. The supernatural is God. The supernatural realm is the domain of God. Strange things happen in this realm. It is the realm of the abnormal (above normal). The supernatural produces things that eyes have not seen, ears have not heard, and men’s hearts have not heard (1.Cor2:9). It is the realm where various healings and deliverances take place. In Christ, we are redeemed as record-breakers. But keep in mind that no one ever breaks a record in their comfort zone. Breaking records necessitates stretching. Nothing becomes extraordinary on its own; it is the result of our extraordinary efforts.


Spirituality is simply ‘scripturality,‘ or living according to the dictates of the Bible. Obedience to scriptural injunctions is the cheapest way to elicit the supernatural’s release. “If you love Me, keep My commandments” (John.14:15). There is always something you can do to get where you want to go.

God’s word is creative. The word has a creative force to it. We live in a world that is framed by words. What you say is exactly what you get. Everything will be OK if you speak clearly; you may correct any errors with your tongue. It was unattractive to God when he saw darkness. “Let there be light,” he urged. There was also light. Darkness bows out when light enters. Light does not struggle with darkness.

Wait, the bible says, “Speak unto this mountain,” not “cry unto this mountain.” Mountains represent issues like sickness, disease, failure, poverty, barrenness, begging and borrowing, hunger, and so on. Have you said anything to that mountain of yours? Whatever He says, He creates. And you are made in His image. That is, whatever you say has the power to create. The tongue has the power to kill and to save (Proverbs 18:21). The Tongue- Fired-Faith has another dimension that many believers have yet to discover. Before the actual killing, David had already cut off Goliath’s head with his mouth. “for I will give you a mouth (mouth gift) and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist” (Luke.21:15). Begin to use your mouth gift, friend, by making a bold declaration about the issue at hand. “Don’t say what you don’t want to see in your life,” a wise man once said.

God’s word is medicinal. When you read the Bible, you are seeing more than just letters; there is substance behind those letters. Reading the scripture provides information; meditating on the scripture provides the substance behind the words, resulting in revelation. In other words, through meditation, information progresses to revelation. Manifestation is a result of revelation. Kenneth Hagin was reading Mark.11:23 one day while bedridden, but the word hit him like a thunderbolt. He stood up and demanded his healing. Kenneth E Hagin, may you rest in peace. He had seen that if he believed, he could speak to the crippled mountain and it would move. Deep meditation must have helped him reach the substance level of the word. Consider this: Jesus paid the price for your illness on the cross.

for verily i say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come pass: he shall have whatsoever he saith

The unfortunate reality is that many so-called born-again Christians believe their doctors rather than God; the doctors’ reports rather than the scripture. Recognize that whatever the scripture says is final, God has the final say. Stop looking at the doctor’s report and start reading the Bible. SERVING GOD ensures your overall health; you can’t serve God and be sick (Ex.23:25). “And ye shall SERVE the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee” (Ex.23:25). Jesus was wounded so that you would not be in a car accident. Why should you be found in an accident wreck if you can’t imagine Jesus in one? You are meant to live in a pain-free zone as a result of your redemption. “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you” (Luke.10:19).

God’s word is surgical. In the healing workshop, God has spare parts for all of our body parts and systems. God is the great surgeon. I don’t care how messed up your life is; God can fix it. He replaces anything that cannot be repaired. In Genesis, we see how God performed the first surgery in history on Adam, putting him to sleep and removing a bone from his body to create Eve. “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Heb.4:12).

The world’s doctor once told a woman she didn’t have a womb to carry a child; the woman, who happened to be God’s daughter, went to her maker and cried for help, and she was confirmed pregnant. That could only be God (the supernatural). A man with bone marrow cancer connected to Faith Tabernacle lives online in one Shiloah program. During the program, He appeared to testify that the bone cancer had vanished. He returned a year later to testify that he was the man who came to testify last year, that a year had passed, and that I was still alive and well. The majority of these miracles happened as a result of exhortation. It comes as no surprise that the scripture states that He sent His word and healed them (Psalm.107:20).

Friend, the supernatural is meant for everyone, but some people will never get to experience it until they die. We are a people of equal destiny; there is no difference between Jews and Greeks (Gal.3:28), black and white, first and third worlds. Jesus came to save those who believe in Him. To be clear, supernatural experiences cannot be had until you enter/dive into the word of God. It’s not about preaching it, but about putting it into practice (the devil can preach). You can tune in to the frequency of God’s word by obeying every scriptural instruction. The natural reigns supreme until the supernatural triumphs.

The Mystery In The Name Of Jesus

A picture of Jesus

The name of Jesus is not just a pause or a comma in prayers. Understanding the mysteries in the name of Jesus will put you in command of your destiny. God has given us a name that’s above all other names. Whatsoever that has a name answers to the authority in the name of Jesus. This is a divine setting. Be it sickness or disease; failure or hunger as far as it has a name, it must bow to the name of Jesus.

“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him and given him a name which is above every name. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven and things in earth, and things under the earth.—Philippians.2:12-13.

You can use the name of Jesus to give your life a new shape; you can use It to turn your business, marriage, and career around in 360 degrees.

Be mindful of the name you name your children. People tend to exhibit the attributes of the name given to them. That’s why so many biblical heroes had to change their names to suit their offices.

Remember Peter used to be known as Simon, which means a shaking reed.  When Simon (a reed) became Peter (the rock), the giant in him awoke. He became Peter the rock and that fit the ruggedness of his office.

We can find the prophecy about the birth of a messiah in the book of Isaiah.

“For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. His government and its peace will never end.”—Isiah.9:6-7.

Below are the mysteries behind the Name of Jesus:

(1)  His Name is Wonderful
(2)  His name is wisdom
(3)  His name is mighty
(4)  His name is eternal
(5)  His name is peaceful

His name is wonderful – Most of the attributes of the name of Jesus are mentioned in Isaiah.9, they manifest themselves into reality when you use the name of Jesus. The name of Jesus is full of wonders. It can heal the sick,  liberate the poor, oppressed and raise the dead. This list is endless. It’s very vital to understand the values that the name carries.

There is wisdom in the name of Jesus – The scripture mentioned counsel as part of the attributes of the name of Jesus. Counsel is a part and parcel of Wisdom. You can’t talk about counsel without talking about wisdom. Wisdom is applied knowledge. Counsel is solving human problems with applicable scriptures. Understand this value that you have in the name of Jesus. Even a child knows Jesus is wise. At 12, he was teaching the elites, they were marveled at the magnitude of his wisdom.

His name is mighty – The supremacy of the name of Jesus was proven in a conquest between Elijah and the prophets of the Baal; the yardstick of measurement was a fire. If God is the real God, let fire come down from heaven; If Baal is the veritable god or not, let fire come down. The Baal agents carried out their best but all their efforts were futile. The God that answers by fire responded with a consuming fire. And that settled the case. Thus the supremacy of  God was established.

Another scene took place in Pharaoh’s court, it was a saga between Aaron’s rod and the rods of the sorcerers. The original and the counterfeit. The rod of Aaron turned to a serpent, and the rod of the magicians also turned to serpents. But the serpent of Aaron swallowed all the serpents of the magician. Thus, proving the supremacy of God. Here, you must be sensitive about miracles. Not all miracles are genuine. Some are traditional magic. The magician rods also turned to serpents. (See Exodus.7:9-12)

Understand that the rod symbolizes the name of Jesus. And there shall come forth a rod out of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots  (Jesus is the rod). With the rod in Moses’ hands, diverse signs and wonders occurred. The rod departed the red sea; water gushed out from the rock; the rod rained tempest and hails upon the Egyptians. Understand that you have a rod in your hands to perform signs and wonders.

The name of Jesus is eternal – His name carries everlasting value that is beyond this world.

Peace – In a restless world, the only place where you can find a genuine rest is in Jesus. There is a lot of jostling and bustling here and there. Consciously or unconsciously, even believers are caught in the web. Until surrender to Jesus, and leave the ring of unrest, the journey will always rough.

Final Thoughts

  • The name of Jesus is not a mere pause in prayers; it carries the attributes mentioned in Isaiah’s prophecy.
  • The name of Jesus is wonderful. The bible says you shall do signs with the name of Jesus.
  • His name is mighty. Jesus was sent to be great (Luke.1:26-38). He said, as my father sent me, so I sent you (to be great). The supremacy of the name of Jesus was established in a contest between Elijah and the prophets of the Baal and between Moses, Aaron, and magicians. The serpent of Aaron swallowed the serpent of the magicians, proven the supremacy of God.
  • The name of Jesus has an eternal value.
  • The most peaceful place in the world right now is the kingdom. Run to Him today. Tomorrow might be too late.
