OPENING OBSERVATIONS

  1. Supernatural living is the identity of Jesus.
  2. Jesus did not refer to the works of God as miracles; it’s how He operates.  This implies that the life of the believer should also be supernatural.
  3. Satan is the culprit of destruction not Jesus.  (Scripture reference – St. John 10:10)

 

INTRODUCTION

  1. St. John 6:1-2
    1. The people called Jesus’ works miracles.
    2. God calls you by who you are in His word.  In other words, God does not see you with limitations.
  2. St. Matthew 16:13-16
    1. Who do you say you are when sickness or lack abounds? Do you speak the truth of God’s word or do you agree with the natural circumstances?
    2. St. John 17:17
      1. Sanctification – to be set aside for the usage of God not the usage of the world.
      2. The word of God is the truth.
  3. Romans 4:17
    1. God did call Abram as he was in the natural.  God called Abraham as he was in the realm of the supernatural.
    2. You see into the supernatural realm through the word of God.
    3. God sees us as we are in His realm (the realm of the supernatural).
    4. God does not live in time.  Time came out of God; therefore, as far as God is concerned He has already made… (whatever you are believing God for).
    5. The words you speak however must line up with what God has made you in His realm.  In other words, the power is released in His words that you speak.
