We Are Wired For The Supernatural

October 6, 2009

I don’t know if you’ve noticed but there seems to be a surge of interest in the supernatural.  There are more elements in our culture about vampires, superheroes, witches, and other types of super-charged humans.  For me, I am excited about this phenomenon because of what it actually points to.  While those things are counterfeit and misguided expressions, at their core they are still expressions of the unique wiring God placed in every human to long for the supernatural.

In all of creation humans are the only specie that God said He made in His image.  He wasn’t just talking about outward appearances.  He was actually saying that His DNA, his software, had been downloaded into man.  From that identity Adam began to demonstrate a likeness to God only surpassed by Jesus Christ.  Jesus was fully God yet at the same time he was fully man.  Every miracle He performed, he performed simply as a man in right relationship with God.  John 14:12 is a staggering scripture because Jesus tell us that as humans we would perform the same types of miracles he did and go further in the supernatural than he did.  What an incredible statement -what an incredible responsibility we carry.

One of the great tragedies of western thought is that we’ve learned to analyze scripture but not experience scripture first hand.  We have become a nation that glorifies mental ascent and demonizes real encounters.  So society forces us to ignore our natural instincts.  Our logic keeps us from fulfilling our responsibility.  I have heard stories of small framed women lifting cars off of loved ones who were in an accident to save their lives.  Its unfortunate that we only hear those rare stories of the supernatural in our culture and they only come from adrenaline boost.  The spread of those counterfeit supernatural beings in our culture is really a hidden cry for an experience with that which is authentic.  I believe we are in a ripe time.  1 Corinthians 4:20 says the Kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but power.  There is a movement of people God is raising that have decided to pick back up their responsibility and respond to the God-given thirst in humankind for an encounter with the supernatural power of God.  These people have said no more words….just let me show you what I am wired to do.

    It is God’s heart for us to draw nearer to Him than ever before. I’ve always believed that we were supposed to do the things that Christ has done, and “greater works” than these, but unfortunately, the “traditional” church has not embraced this belief. Many times the mere thought of us having that type of power freaks people out and makes them think that we are trying to be God. We know that there is only “one” true and living God, and that any “works” that we do, is solely by His grace and power, not that any of us can boast. It is His power that we live and move and have our being, and share an intimacy that no other person or force in this world can compare to! Thank you for your pressing forward and deeper into the ways of Our Father, as we learn more of all that we are “Wired” for.

    Thanks Pastor Troy…I too have been doing a lot of thinking about the power of operating in the supernatural all day long and I really love John 14:12….My prayer is that God will help me/us…believers to really trust Him in guiding us on this peaceful and enjoyable journey into another dimension of His grace, wisdom, and affirming of our ministries and purpose while we dwell here….it doesn’t get any better than this…i.e constantly walking and communing with Him and expecting Him to talk to us with new revelation…

    This entry make me reflect on the service that gave those of us that took the healing training the opportunity to pray over those who needed it. I remember standing in the front of the stage laying hands and praying for others believe God to use me in that truly powerful way… Well as you have led us to believe it is in our power to believe God wants us to have heaven on earth and sickness is not of God. So when my friend came to me and asked me to pray for her because she on top of every thing else the doctors saw in her last MRI a large mass on her ovaries and they were not her Fribroyeds and that she needed an emergency ultra sound to get a closer look. Well I prayed with her over the phone and was very specific in my pray that God shrivel it up and remove it as if it were never there and the Dr’s wont even be able to explain long story short… When she saw me she was crying with happiness because the ultra sound nurse asked her why was she having an ultra sound done again and she told her for a large mass on her ovaries (orange size) and she had to go get the Doctor because there was nothing there and they just chalked it up as they made a mistake and must have saw her fribroid tumors…. But I know better and she believed our God is a good God and I gave hime all the praise and to me that was just NATURALLY Super… Love this ministry
    Peace and Joy
