I believe the supernatural is the true root of Christianity. What do I mean by this?
Consider this: the virgin birth of Jesus Christ is a miracle. His strange understanding at age 12, which amazed the doctors of the law is also a miracle.
His ministry of signs and wonders cannot be denied. They
said He has done all things well! He has made the blind to see, the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak. His death and resurrection is perhaps the greatest of all miracles.
Our foundation as believers is defined in Ephesians 2:20:
And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone.
We are built on the foundations of the apostles, with Christ Himself being the chief corner stone! That means Christ and the apostles are our foundation in the Christian race.
Therefore, whatever we see in Christ and the apostles is what is in store for us, that is God’s design for us.
Note that the apostles’ calls were miracle calls. Jesus said to Peter,
“Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” A miracle call was what brought him into the faith. Think of Andrew, Nathaniel, and Matthew; they all had miracle calls into the faith; they had a training in the miraculous. He sent them out, first the twelve, and later seventy, and they all returned with testimonies.
He asked them, “When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing?” They said,
“Nothing!” They didn’t take money along, and yet they had no lack on the way.
Christ is our root in the faith; and everything about Him is a miracle.
Therefore, if we as Christians disregard the place of the supernatural in our lives and walk here on earth, we will become spiritually impotent.
Not only that, when we disregard the place of the supernatural, we will also become spiritually vulnerable to every wicked manoeuvring of the devil, as the supernatural is the security of our destiny in Christ.
The supernatural is very relevant to our human needs today, because we are confronted daily with spiritual forces.
The Bible says we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, and
against rulers of this wicked world and wicked spirit in high places. So, you must operate in the supernatural to be able to deal with them.
The supernatural is the only thing that differentiates the Christian faith from all other faiths. The supernatural is the proof of the Christian faith.
This is because every need answers to a miracle, every challenge bows to a wonder, and every desire surrenders to a sign. When you take your place in God, every devil will no doubt give way to you on earth.
Note that the supernatural is not reserved for only a few, but is for all.
The Bible says,
“These signs shall follow them that believe” (Mk. 16:17).
As long as you are a believer, you are expected to operate in the supernatural. It is for all. The supernatural is not the exclusive preserve of special ministers of the gospel such as Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, Teachers, Archbishops, Bishops and what have you.
So, I’d like you to set yourself for a baptism of the supernatural as you read this book.
From henceforth, you will constantly think supernatural thoughts and take supernatural steps.
I hope to be able to initiate you into this realm of the supernatural, where your true worth as a Christian will be delivered.
“For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God” (Rom. 8:19). That’s you!
The world is waiting for your manifestations! I believe that before you get to the end of this book, you would have been fully initiated into a world of signs and wonders,
because that is where you actually belong.
We will be looking purely in the word of God, and showing what the supernatural is. As you see it, you will believe it, and when you believe it, you are sure to become it.
