Why the Miracles, Signs and Wonders?
I believe that the signs and miracles we are seeing is to normalize them and at the same time to create a hunger for more of the supernatural, more of God’s power that He originally bestowed on us. It is also to make us used to seeing miracles and know they are real, so as to train us up to KNOW that we can work them for the future.
Make no mistake, there will come a time when we will be required to heal the sick, raise the dead, multiply food, transport, disappear in a crowd, and even walk on the water. I believe that the end time army of God will be able to do all of these things, and more.
I believe we are being trained in these works now, such as “sending our spirit” (2 Kings 5:26); strong and accurate words of knowledge (2 Kings 6:12 and 2 Kings 8:12); and finding that which was lost (2 Kings 6:6-7).
The key is to listen for God to tell us what He wants us to do and say, what to proclaim and what to declare; where to go, when to go, and when to stay. Get tuned into God’s voice. Spend time with Him. Listen to what He says, through any outlet that He wishes, whether it’s TV or another person or the Bible. Don’t limit Him. And don’t doubt! Have faith and use it!
Ask Him for the gift of miracles! Nothing will create a believer out of a non-believer quicker than a miracle.
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do…” (Jn 14:24)
THE MANIFESTATIONS OF THE PROMISES OF GOD ARE COMING INTO VIEW!
My husband and I are staying in a waterfront lake-house for the next few days. To get here, we drove for two days from Texas to Ohio, spending half a day in Nashville. After driving for the next eight hours, we arrived late at night. It was dark, and we couldn’t see it very well, but we knew the lake was right outside the window. The moon was gorgeous in the sky, and there was a reflection of its light on the waters.
The next morning, I walked out into the living room, not expecting it to be so incredibly bright! The big picture window blasted sunlight into the room. The lake was in full view, peacefully still and shining in all its natural beauty! There were several adult geese and a bunch of babies swimming in a row, immediately in front of the window. As I stood looking at this glorious scene, it hit me: THE MANIFESTATIONS OF THE PROMISES OF GOD ARE COMING INTO VIEW!
THE PROMISES HAVE STARTED TO MANIFEST!
The promises have started to manifest! They have started to come true. We have been excitedly awaiting for this trip for months now. We have worked on every detail, constructing it right down to our housing and food. Time was all that separated us from it, and now, it is finally here!
In the same way, there is construction being done on the dam that contains the lake. Because of this construction, there is a chain link fence that separates all the lake houses from it. It is designated a construction zone. We can SEE the lake through the fence; we can SMELL it, we can even HEAR it – we just cannot TOUCH it from the exact spot where we are, in this particular house.
This spoke to me! The lake symbolizes our promises – they are right in front of us! We can see them, we can smell them, some can even hear them. We just cannot touch them – YET! And that is a mighty big YET!! However, the lake has come into view, and so have our promises from God!
SIGNS FOR GOD’S PEOPLE
Hanging on the fence are construction signs: “DANGER: Authorized Personnel Only” and “EMERGENCY PERSONNEL ONLY”. Both of these signs speak to AUTHORITY! All of us at this level are AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL, so enter in! However, for some of us, our specific promises are still under construction. Some promises require us to use our authority to remove the obstacles – the fences — that are keeping them from manifesting in the natural realm. Regardless, there is only a very thin veil, a “see-through” fence, between all of us and our promises! They are on their way! Use your Authority!
Your Personal Protective Equipment is an OFF-FENCE-IVE weapon!
There is another sign that says, “PPE REQUIRED BEYOND THIS POINT”. PPE stands for Personal Protective Equipment. For us as God’s people, this means SHIELDS UP! SWORDS UP! Get that hard hat on – the helmet of truth! Get your protective gear on, and don’t take it off! Your Personal Protective Equipment is an OFF-FENCE-IVE weapon! Use your PPE constantly, and consistently!
In between the fence and the lake is a dry dirt road, maybe only 20-30 feet across. Each day, there is a water truck that comes and sprays water on it to keep the dust down. This water truck symbolizes the Holy Spirit coming daily to water the word in you!
There is only this one, last, little stretch of desert highway, this one little patch of dry, dirt road that stands between us and our lake of promises! Do not grow weary in well-doing, because in the end, we still win! YOU STILL WIN!
“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not,” (Gal. 6:9).
Beyond this “fence” are promises that are as yet still dammed up, behind a fence. Some are still under construction, and require us to use our authority and our spiritual weapons to pull them into the natural realm, and our lives. However, God is faithful to complete the good work that He has begun. He is manifesting His promises into the NOW!
“And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ [right up to the time of His return], developing [that good work] and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you,”(Phil. 1:6).
Watch for it: His promises are manifesting right in front of our eyes! They have come into view!
Be blessed as you receive yours!
