Enjoying the Supernatural

Every New Testament believer is a priest and a king. I mean was you are saved by the blood of Jesus, you operate as a priest and a king. In the old testament are different from ordinary because they have access to the supernatural. For example, Zechariah the priest could not speak after he met the angel that prophesied that he will have a son at his old age. His sudden dumbness did not shock the people. They only concluded that he must have seen a vision.

Exodus 19:6
Now if you will obey me and keep my covenant, you will be my own special treasures from among all nations of the earth; for all the earth belongs to me And you will be to me a kingdom of priests, my holy nation.’ Give this message to the Israelites.’’  (NLT)

This message is for the Israelites,  remember all the supernatural blessings which they enjoyed while in Egypt and in the wilderness. Their deliverance from Egypt was supernatural, the crossing of the red sea was supernatural, the provision of manna was supernatural, the fact that they wore clothing which did not wear out; nor did their foot swell for forty years was supernatural (Deut 8:4).  All the battles the Lord won for them were supernaturally won. After God chose Aaron’s household as the priest (representing the other tribes who are also priests before God Ex 19:6), other Levites are not satisfied, and the selection made some jealous. God resolved the contention that arose supernaturally by making Aaron’s rod bud overnight (Number 17).

The New Testament believer must not operate below the supernatural because Jesus promised us that we shall do more excellent works than he did (John 14:12). The major hindrance to more extraordinary results (supernatural) is doubt and unbelief.  Jesus made us see this when he cursed the fig tree (Mark 11:12-25). The disciples were surprised because the tree dried up, but Jesus was not. And he told them:

 “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. 23 “Truly[d] I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. 24 Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

A perfect example of doubt was when Peter walked upon the waters. Jesus constrained disciples to go ahead of him in a ship while he waited to pray alone. Around three o’clock in the morning, there was a severe storm, and the disciples were troubled. Amidst the contrary storm, they saw Jesus walking on the sea. They were all troubled when they saw Jesus, but he told them not to be troubled, and he said, “I am the one.” Peter said, “if you are the one Lord, bid me to come.”

Peter desired to enjoy the supernatural, and Jesus granted his request. He began to enjoy the same until he doubted. We also desire many supernatural experiences like Peter. Some of us don’t turn such desires to request from Jesus. Others may turn it into a request and doubt along the line like Peter. Unfortunately, many sanctified who do not enjoy the supernatural often tag those who experience the same as diabolical.

When you throw a fish in the water, it swims by the principle of floatation. The principle which guides the supernatural is, do not doubt. Just switch off your logic and switch on spiritual senses. Go ahead and swim in the supernatural.
