UNDERSTANDING THE SUPERNATURAL
SUNDAY ENCOUNTER SERVICE
FROM GREAT GRACE TABERNACLE
You must understand as a child of God, that the bible is not like a newspaper.
Zechariah 4:6-, Isaiah 59:19
⭕️When you hear “Lord of Hosts” it is referring to the Holy Spirit.
⭕️It is not possible to experience the grace of God without the Spirit of God.
⭕️The spirit of God is a conveyor of grace.
⭕️We have access into grace by faith but we cannot have faith until we have understanding.
⭕️We cannot understand until the spirit helps us to understand.
⭕️Grace multiplies by knowledge (revealed knowledge).
⭕️The Holy Spirit is the revealer of knowledge.
⭕️Grace is help of God.
⭕️Every time the Holy Spirit comes on the scene, help has come.
UNDERSTANDING THE SUPERNATURAL
⭕️What is natural can be explained by natural and scientific laws.
WHAT IS SUPERNATURAL?
i)Attributed to some force beyond the scientific or laws of nature.
- ii) Not able to be explained by laws of science.
iii) Being above and beyond what is natural.
⭕️It becomes a problem when we try to understand the supernatural from a scientific point of view.
⭕️The spiritual cannot be subjected to the laws of science.
⭕️When we are dealing with the supernatural, it is important to have a renewed mind and be careful not to subject the supernatural to the natural ways of determining whether something is true or not.
⭕️Understanding is the entrance of light.
⭕️Light enables you to see.
⭕️Until there is a seeing, understanding has not yet happened.
⭕️Having facts about the supernatural will help a believer in a great way.
⭕️The supernatural is what controls natural occurrences, it has higher authority over the natural.
⭕️The supernatural is like a remote control for the natural.
⭕️The supernatural is the foundation of all the things we see around.
1 Kings 18:24
⭕️In the supernatural there are two major forces: there is a force of the kingdom of darkness and the force of the kingdom of God.
⭕️These two forces are at war with each other for the dominance of the human race.
⭕️When we say supernatural, we are referring to the spirit realm.
1 John 5:19
⭕️The world has become a magnetic field of the devil.
⭕️The understanding of how the world came to lie in wickedness is actually the root of supernatural.
⭕️In the beginning, the only person Adam knew and was relating with was God.
Genesis 3:1-7, Genesis 2:17
⭕️Satan likes to offer people things that he doesn’t have.
⭕️To die is to be separated.
⭕️When Adam and Even ate the fruit, for the first time, they began to be concerned about themselves instead of focusing on God.
⭕️When Adam and Eve ate the fruit, Satan became the god of this world.
⭕️It is not possible to flow in the supernatural without understanding what happened in the garden and understanding God’s plan to rescue man.
⭕️The issue of having an identity crisis caused Satan to have headway over Adam and Eve in the garden.
⭕️ If we are going to live the supernatural life in the kingdom of God, we need to have the root identified.
⭕️Your identity in Christ is the root to living the supernatural.
⭕️To be born-again does not mean belonging to a church.
⭕️A person who does not understand his identity in Christ cannot walk in the supernatural.
John 3:16, John 10:10
⭕️When you are born again, you have the divine nature of God in you.
⭕️It is what is inside you that should be defining you.
⭕️A container for cooking oil looks the same as a container for spirit of salt, but they don’t have the same content.
⭕️If a child of God spends a lot of time trying to understand his body instead of trying to understand what his spirit is; he is lost.
Genesis 1:26, 2:7
⭕️God created man before he created his body.
⭕️When you are born again, you are existing in Christ.
⭕️Your body is here on earth, but the spirit man inside that body is sitting in heavenly places.
⭕️The devil is a spirit being just like you are a spirit being, but you are superior being.
⭕️The devil is just like any one of the angels, created to serve God and his interests, but God created you just like Himself.
⭕️Angels are your ministering spirits, that’s why you can’t worship them.
⭕️If you are born again but do not know that you are seated in heavenly places, satan who is lower than you will be tormenting you.
⭕️The people in the Old Testament had no ability to cast out devils, but we do.
⭕️If Moses went to Pharaoh as a mere human being, he would not have taken the Israelites out of Egypt.
⭕️To do business here on earth, a spirit being needs a human body with which to cooperate with.
John 3:3-8, Luke 17:31, Romans 14:17
⭕️Healings and testimonies are a manifestation of the supernatural.
⭕️The kingdom of God is within every born-again child of God.
⭕️You need to have your spiritual eyes open to see the kingdom of God.
⭕️Baptism is an outward witness of something that has happened inside a person.
⭕️When you get baptized so many things happen spiritually.
⭕️Baptism is important.
⭕️Once you accept Jesus as your lord and saviour, you enter into the kingdom of God.
⭕️If you are born-again, you are a spirit being and that is what makes you superior to any other human being.
⭕️You can see the manifestations of the Spirit but you will never see the Spirit.
⭕️If you are trying to fight Satan and you’re concentrating on the natural, you have lost.
⭕️If you want to beat Satan, identify yourself with your true identity and you will put him down.
⭕️A born-again child of God sits at a higher place than the devil.
⭕️Anybody who will flow in the supernatural has an understanding of identity.
John 8:44, 4:24
⭕️The devil is a father, and God is also a father.
THINGS YOU MUST UNDERSTAND AS A CHILD OF GOD
1) YOU HAVE A NEW STATUS: YOU ARE A SPIRIT BEING AND NOT A MERE HUMAN BEING.
⭕️As a spirit being you must trade in the realm of spirit beings.
2) UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE A GOD, YOU ARE NOT A MERE HUMAN BEING [JOHN 10:31-36, PSALM 82:5-6, EXODUS 7:1, 2 PETER 1:3-4]
⭕️You cannot be a child of the Most High and not have His life and nature.
⭕️You are a god, make sure you say so.
⭕️Tell Satan that you are his god.
⭕️If you are a god, you have been ordained to defeat Satan for the rest of your life.
⭕️If you are a god, you have divine nature in you.
⭕️The nature of God cannot be captured by Satan.
3) YOU ARE A CHOSEN GENERATION [1 PETER 2:9]
⭕️By this choosing, you are a candidate for favour.
4) YOU ARE AN AMBASSADOR OF CHRIST ON THE EARTH [2 CORINTHIANS 5:20]
⭕️You are God’s representative on the earth.
⭕️You are a citizen of heaven and that is why God appointed you as an ambassador.
⭕️The spirit of excellence must always be around you because as an ambassador you are addressed as “your excellency”.
⭕️When you see an ambassador, you are not seeing an individual but the country he is representing.
⭕️FATHER, GRANT EVERY ONE OF US THE HUNGER AND THE DESRIE TO EVEN DIG OUT MORE, TO BE ON A MISSION OF IDENTIFICATION.
⭕️LORD, UPGRADE OUR THINKING IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.
⭕️DEEPEN OUR UNDERSTANDING.
⭕️LET IT NOT END IN CHURCH, EVEN AS WE GO TO OUR VARIOUS PLACES, HELP US TO THINK THROUGH.
⭕️PRECIOUS HOLY SPIRIT, BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS, WASH AWAY RELIGIOUSNESS.
⭕️WASH AWAY THAT RELIGIOUS GARMENT AND MENTALITY IN OUR MINDS.
⭕️LET THIS SEARCH FOR THE GOD NATURE IN US BRING US PERMANENTLY INTO THE HIGH PLACES OF THE EARTH.
⭕️LET THIS MENTALITY PUT SOMEONE INTO THEIR BREAKTHROUGHS.
⭕️THE LORD BLESS YOU.
⭕️MAY THE SUPERNATURAL BE NATURAL IN OUR MIDST.
⭕️MAY THE SUPERNATURAL BE SO CHEAP IN OUR MIDST.
⭕️ANYONE THAT IS UNDER THE TORMENT OF THE DEVIL IN THE NIGHT OR AT ANY MOMENT OF THE DAY IN THEIR LIVES, BECAUSE OF THIS MESSAGE, THEY HAVE ESCAPED THE ENEMY’S DRAG NET
⭕️YOU HAVE ESCAPED THAT PLACE IN THE NAME OF JESUS!
⭕️THAT STORM IS OVER!
⭕️YOUR HEALING IS RELEASED RIGHT NOW!
⭕️YOUR FREEDOM IS RELEASED RIGHT NOW!
⭕️MAYBE YOU’RE LIKE PETER WHO TOILED ALL NIGHT BUT CAUGHT NOTHING, MAYBE YOU’VE BEEN TOILING, BY REASON OF WHAT YOU HAVE HEARD, MAY THE SUPERNATRUAL HAPPEN TO YOU.
⭕️WHAT YOU DIDN’T THINK POSSIBLE, LET IT HAPPEN TO YOU!
⭕️LET THE WEEK WE HAVE ENTERED INTO BE A WEEK OF STRANGE TESTIMONIES.
⭕️LET IT BE A WEEK OF THE DEMONSTRATION OF THE SUPERNATURAL, IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.
⭕️THE LORD BLESS YOU
⭕️THE LORD SETTLE YOU PERMANENTLY IN HIGH PLACES
