IF you and I are NOT RELEASING the SUPERNATURAL POWER of God in WHATEVER we are doing in our lives and ministries, then we ARE MISSING it!
I am coming to believe that WHEN people talk about WANTING to go back and recover the beginning of Christianity…they are REALLY talking about RELEASING GOD'S SUPERNATURAL POWER!
The FIRST CENTURY AD was a TIME when the Gospel of the Kingdom was preached and the SUPERNATURAL POWER of God was RELEASED in a tremendous demonstration of MIRACLES of HEALING, the SALVATION of SOULS, and yes, even in JUDGMENT!
WHAT is HAPPENING in the church TODAY…is that many have become very CEREBRAL and PSYCHOLOGICAL.
Many have become SKEPTICAL…CYNICAL.
But…IF you and I are NOT TOUCHING the SUPERNATURAL POWER of God…we are NOT touching REAL CHRISTIANITY!
CHRISTIANITY is DESIGNED to FUNCTION and to WORK...INSIDE the SUPERNATURAL. WITHOUT the SUPERNATURAL POWER of God…we are JUST another RELIGIOUS PHILOSOPHY…another DEBATING CLUB!
UNTIL…we TOUCH God …we have NOT TOUCHED GENUINE CHRISTIANITY!
CONTRARY to what many people have been taught…the BOOK of REVELATION is a PROPHECY written to the 7 CHURCHES of ASIA MINOR before 70 AD to PREPARE them for the things ABOUT TO HAPPEN in their day.
The fire of God's JUDGMENT was about to be poured out upon Jerusalem and the Temple.
The BOOK of REVELATION was a CHALLENGE from the LORD JESUS to ACCEPT THEIR ROLE as the SUPERNATURAL people of God…JOIN HIM in His DESIRES to REVEAL HIMSELF and RELEASE HIS SUPERNATURAL POWER IN JUDGMENT in order to ESTABLISH HIS RIGHTEOUS GOVERNMENT UPON the EARTH.
They had to CHOOSE to ACCEPT their role…WE MUST MAKE THIS SAME CHOICE…TODAY!
We MUST CHOOSE to be a people who will NOT BE OFFENDED at the SUPERNATURAL…who will NOT BE FEARFUL of the supernatural…who will NOT RUN FROM the STIGMA of the supernatural…BUT who will WHOLLY EMBRACE the SUPERNATURAL POWER of God and ALLOW HIM to RELEASE HIS POWER through us.
AND IF we SUCCEED in doing this…it won't be God COMING DOWN somewhere way BEYOND us…
The BOOK of REVELATION is not a Book about God MOVING BEYOND…or…OUTSIDE of…or…APART FROM HIS PEOPLE…but IN & THROUGH HIS PEOPLE.
The REVELATION is a BOOK about the 7 CHURCHES of ASIA…made up of BELIEVERS…CHRISTIANS…WHO UNDERSTOOD that the POWER of God…the SUPERNATURAL MANIFESTATION of the LORD would be RELEASED through them…as they THEMSELVES JOINED God in the BATTLE…TOOK UPON THEMSELVES HIS ENEMIES…and DECLARED:
"LORD RELEASE NOW YOUR RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENT in the EARTH and REVEAL YOUR SON & HIS KINGDOM in and through your Church."
NOW...HERE...IS THE QUESTION SAINTS…
- HOW do we PARTICIPATE…
- HOW do we ALLOW…
- HOW do we DEMAND…the RELEASE of the SUPERNATURAL?
There are FOUR THINGS that I want you to see in this message…all found in the Book of Revelation.
This is very IMPORTANT…
- HOW do we do this?
- HOW do we RELEASE the SUPERNATURAL?
- WHAT is it GOING to TAKE?
FOUR VERY STRATEGIC KEYS...
