Preparations for Supernatural Manifestations

Preparations for Supernatural Manifestations
Memory Verse: Psalm 62:11 (NKJV) God has spoken once,
Twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God.

 “We are a supernatural people, born again by a supernatural birth, kept by a supernatural power, sustained on supernatural food, taught by a supernatural Teacher, from a supernatural Book. We are led by a supernatural Captain in right paths to assured victories.”Hudson Taylor, Founder, China Inland Mission

I.                  The Purpose of Supernatural manifestation of God:

First, to glorify God (John 2:11; 11:40)

Second, to accredit certain workings of God in people
Acts 2:22; Hebrews 2:3–4

Third, to provide evidence for belief in God
John 6:2; 14;20:30–31; Psalm 62:11

 “The secret of the success of the Apostles lay not in what they did and said, but in the presence of Christ in them and with them. They saw with the eyes of Christ, felt with His heart, and worked with His energies. They were nothing, Christ was everything. Christ was living, breathing, and triumphing in their personal lives. Their entire nature being replete with His light, and their souls kindled with the fires of His love, they moved in the midst of men as embodiment of supernatural power.”  - G John.

II.               The Preparations for Supernatural Manifestations.

Jeremiah 17:7; John 20:29; Hebrews 11:1; 6; Matthew 9:27–30; John 11:38–44
