Believing in Supernatural

bible-pagesMore and more we see movies portraying people with supernatural abilities or powers.  You may think this is just pretending, being creative make believe or just even silly but the fact of the matter is, there is some truth pieces to why Hollywood is doing this.  We know there are spiritual influences in which causes people to do what they do.  Think about it for a minute.  When Satan and his angels fell, they continually control the earth’s realm with influence.  They cannot create, nor know what a person thinks. They know they are being successful with their power by your actions and what you speak.   They can only influence or inhabit people.  As humans we are a body, with a spirit and soul.  When you look at the tri-fold, we are more spiritual than you think.  We are made in the image of God and Satan will try to copy, imitate then eventually destroy all of God’s creation.  If you are a Christian believer, then you should believe in the supernatural.  In definition, supernatural means it is not of this world, bizarre, mystic or paranormal.  Many people cannot understand or fathom God and all His abilities.  When people can’t understand something, can’t explain it, they tend to create some story to pacify their own limited understanding or say it doesn’t exist.  Satan, along with his cohorts cannot multiply because they are just a limited number.  However, Christian believers continue to multiply in this world causing havoc in the spiritual realm airways.  We live in the last days of time, and the soon to come Jesus Christ will take His children out of this world.  When this happens people left behind will need an explanation of what happened.  Hollywood has paved the way for those to believe Alien abduction as taken place.  Satan is not dumb.  He also uses the supernatural to entice weak vessels to follow him with fame, money, lusts, and limited supernatural abilities.  Since people are unaware of being more of a spiritual being, they can fall into the wrong spiritual realm.  This is where physic, fortune telling, séance’s, witchcraft or even making darkness appear light, evil appear good or should I say, sin with no affects.  Heroes, Push, Twilight, Knowing are just a few movies in which people are drawn to.  Pure entertainment, or subconscious is it introducing us to a stronger spiritual battle? 

During the last year, here at PromiseLand we have personally experienced over forty healings.  Cancer, tumors, high blood pressure, hepatitis, M.S., and broken bones have healed.  We can’t explain, supernatural yes, we give God the glory.  Faith plays a big part and preaching to the people the Word of God of bringing the Kingdom concept on earth as it is in heaven is a start in believing the supernatural.  God is not limited to what He can do on earth or through His people.  Preach healing, you reap healing.  Preach miracles, signs and wonders will follow those who believe and you reap signs, wonders and miracles.  Preach God has given us gifts of the Spirit to use and work among us for the edification of His church and watch God move in the Spirit.  As we add to the church daily, the enemy will try to put a stop in the moving of God.  His strategies include distractions, getting people to slander, accusations of God’s people and the list goes on.

SupernaturalWe laugh at the stories we have heard recently.  We supposedly are a mafia who has a drug conspiracy going on in our church, along with money swindling and drug trades.  These are only to name a few.  Of course I hope many of you that read this, will laugh at the gesture and halt the rumor if you hear it.  IF we were doing anything against Kingdom Christian principles, first of all God would put a halt upon it because we know that sin only is pleasurable for a season.  However, since we serve the one and only Supreme God, He puts a blessing on those who faithfully serve Him.  How do we explain the growth, numerically or spiritually?  How do we explain people driving over an hour to be a part of a move of God?  His love and His amazing Spirit is the key factor!

Supernatural abilities are yours for the asking.  His Spirit must reside in you for you to be handed over and trusted with His supernatural gifts.  Movies and false imitations may rise to create or entice people to follow after the misleading precept of you can be powerful by practicing inner healing, crystal stones, witchcraft, voodoo, casting spells etc.  However we know the truth when it says there is only one way to get to heaven and that is through Jesus.  When you know who Jesus is, then you will know He is not limited to the power He wishes to bestow on all of His Church which includes you and me.

If you want to see the supernatural alive and in action, you don’t have to go to the movies, just come to church and see God move through His believers.  It is just not for pure entertainment but for all who come to seek Him, His glory and His honor.  We don’t worship to obtain the miracles for the miracles are just a by-product of whom we worship.  We praise for He has changed a many of us into new creatures, erased our past and given us hope, however we worship Him for who He is.  He is God almighty and yes He still works in the Supernatural realm whether if you believe it or not.  The best thing about working in the Supernatural, it’s rising at an incredible speed as believers continue to grow deeper in His presence and develop a more intimacy walk with God.  

I Corinthians 12-14  Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.  The manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.  Follow after love and desire spiritual gifts.  Be zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that you may excel to the edifying of the church.

My daughter, Kristi, was stabbed 32 times last year and what Satan meant for death, my JESUS meant for a 2nd chance at LIFE!! My husband has been healed from leukemia, and I have been healed from high blood pressure!!! Glory to God!! Not to mention all the things that we have been delivered from!! We are still works in progress, but I know that we are headed in the right direction, thanks to God and all the prayers from my AWESOME Pastor, his family, and all of our church family!!
