I cannot imagine a Supernatural Church without Supernatural Saints. It takes more than a supernatural leader; it requires a supernatural team. A football team may have a great coach but can’t win the championship without a great team! To win, a great coach must lead, teach, train and equip team to be winners. Until then, the team will remain spectators on the side line instead of active players on the field.
Church is about learning how to do something and then doing it. There must be a purpose and goal, creating an action that produces results, naturally and spiritually. Church is not just a fellowship without a result. Fellowship is like sweating. People don’t plan to sweat with each other; they plan something they can do together that produces sweat.
When a Church body assembles it’s not to just a spectator event, but an enhancing and growing event, something should result from the singing and preaching besides goose pumps. There should be some kind of healthy motivation created. The world is not buying what is being offered, so there must be something wrong. Okay, could it be because we want to be accepted by man more than by God? John 12:43 said: for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
Ministry is not a performance before people – It’s a tool God can use to bring people to believe in Him. That’s why Jesus ministry was called, “the Ministry of Reconciliation”. Reconciling man is getting man back to God from world’s bondage by deceptions. Jesus did not come to teach us how to live better in worldly kingdom, but to teach us there’s a New Kingdom not of this world, an invisible kingdom.
Jesus was a carpenter, but when He was 30 (age of Jewish ministry) He did not focus on expanding His carpentry business, but on introducing another lifestyle of abundance, health and victory through a new kingdom approach, the invisible kingdom.
When Jesus called the fisherman to join Him, they left their nets; they didn’t focus on how to build a bigger fishing business. When Jesus called Matthew (tax collector), it was not to improve or promote Matthew in his business, but to introduce him to new kingdom approach to life. Jesus introduced a new kingdom, a spiritual kingdom that had a different motive, a different approach with a different result of life, with “one” purpose – To reconcile mankind back to God and His Kingdom.
Are we starting to get it yet, because we are a full fledge son/daughter of Most High God. More we understand, more we trust God’s love and fear God’s judgment. Let’s look at the following verse and ask our self what it says about God’s love toward His family children, Believers. 2 Peter 1:2-4 “Grace and peace be multiplied to you in knowledge of Jesus our Lord, his divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through knowledge of Him who called us by glory given to us as exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these we may be partakers of divine nature escaping corruption in world through lust.” POINT: We can really be a fully fledged son of most High God.
