Better than good greetings, in Jesus’ most colourful name!
May the mercies & grace of our God & the Lord Jesus be multiplied to you, now & always, unto the fulfilling of His good pleasures, through His knowledge, faith & love, in Jesus’ most colourful name!
At KDCG, yesterday, we came to the concluding part of the teaching series in our Glory To Glory Word Hour, THE PURPOSES OF THE SUPERNATURAL.
1. The supernatural announces the carrier – John 2.11(KJV):
“This beginningof miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him“.
People will always need the helps of God through His genuine children & servants, & one of the ways by which they’re known is by the mighty acts of God in & through their lives.
A medical doctor of about thirty five years practise before venturing into politics, met me about eight years ago, afflicted with an undisclosed & undiagnosable medical condition, home & abroad.
His cousin in a nearby town to us, who has heard about & a partaker of God’s grace on my life, brought him to me, & to the glory of God, the mysterious affliction was terminated simply by faith in the Word of God, without any strings attached, though according to him, many ‘servants of God’ had collected so much money from him without any solution.
Sometime ago, a young vibrant politician intending to recontest his seat in the House of Representative election came to me for God’s intervention because of the very stiff opposition at that time, & God did it for him, even though his opponent came to see me also but there was no commitment to her, since God had already spoken about His choice & He’s not the author of confusion!
Our God in His Wisdom has put the supernatural in place for His children & servants to be distinguished from frauds.
When the rod of Moses that became the snake swallowed up snakes of Pharaoh’s magicians, they became rodless & what’s a magician without a rod?!
By the fourth miracle of the lice in Egypt, the magicians told Pharaoh that God’s Finger was evidently at work!
When it is genuinely from God, there are no charges, it’s always free.
The only price to be paid is to put your faith at work to the instruction of God’s servant in His Word!
After Elisha was announced to Naaman’s household & the commander’s leprosy was cured, he wanted to give gifts to the man of God, Elisha, who discreetly rejected them.
In the days of Jesus, as recorded in Luke 8.1-3, several people, including women, whom He had helped, ministered to Him of their own substances, though, of course, he didn’t & never requested for them.
About two weeks ago, a very dear brother who’s life had been impacted by God’s grace upon me, wanted to give me some gift for my 52nd birthday, so he called to find out if he should bring his tithe or something else, & I told him whatever the Lord lays on his heart but not the tithe, as that should go to the church where he’s been nourished with the Word of God.
The gift of God is to bless mankind & draw them to God through the Lord Jesus & His undiluted Word, not for merchandising!
2. The supernatural gives proofs & evidence to God’s Word – Mark 16.20(KJV):
“And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen“.
God has nothing to confirm outside His Word – Isaiah 44.24,26(KJV):
”Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD…”;
”That confirmeth the word of his servant, and performeth the counsel of his messengers; …”:
According to Hebrews 2.4(KJV), He was “(God)also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will“?
How does the child of God then get the miraculous, the supernatural?
By speaking the Word of God in faith, always – Mark 11.22-23(Weymouth’s New Testament translation):
22 “Jesus said to them, “Have faith in God“.
23 “In solemn truth I tell you that if any one shall say to this mountain, `Remove, and hurl thyself into the sea,’ and has no doubt about it in his heart, but stedfastly believes that what he says will happen, it shall be granted him“.
Mark 11.22-23(Amplified version):
22 “And Jesus, replying, said to them, Have faith in God [constantly]”.
23 “Truly I tell you, whoever says to this mountain, Be lifted up and thrown into the sea! and does not doubt at all in his heart but believes that what he says will take place, it will be done for him”.
The child of God must get to the point of wholly trusting in the faithfulness & omnipotency of God so that he can cheaply work out miracles as needed!
Your life will keep yielding glory to God with better than good testimonies, in Jesus’ most colourful name!
JESUS IS LORD!
