Then Jesus said to him, “Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will by no means believe.”
We live in a time where people really do not believe that Jesus Christ is the true savior of the world and that those who believe in Him shall have eternal life. This is the true gospel and message of Jesus Christ who offered Himself as the only acceptable sacrifice that God our Father would accept. Jesus became the Lamb of God who was offered up as a sacrifice for all mankind and yet a growing majority of people are now not only denying this true but are attacking those who do believe that Jesus has made the way for us all to have everlasting life in heaven.
Even as wonderful as this sounds there are people who still do not believe the gospel message and that there is life for those who believe that Jesus Christ is the son of the living God who was born of the virgin Mary, died on the cross of Calvary for the remission of our sins, was raised on the third day and now sits at the right hand of the Father making intercession for His people.
Jesus said, “They will not believe unless they see signs and wonders.”
Today the only way that the people will see the signs and wonders of God is for us to surrender unto Him allowing Him to use us however He so wills. Therefore, we need to offer ourselves up to Him as vessels for Him to minister through so those who see the signs and wonders of God working through us will believe in the message we share about who Jesus is and tell of the price He has paid for all of us. We are bought by the blood of Jesus and all who receive and follow Him will have life after death.
The first thing anyone who wants to be used by God must do is to die to their own will. Do not worry about what people will think of you; give a word of prophecy or ask someone if they need prayer. Too many people are not used by God to move in His power for they are more concerned with what people will think of them rather than God. You must humble yourself before the Holy Spirit and do everything He tells you to do. If you stop and mull it around your reasoning will take over and rob you of the revelation and the opportunity. You do this too many times and He will leave you and go to another.
Then He (Jesus) said to them, “Take heed what you hear. With the same measure you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given. For whoever has, to him more will be given; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.”
You do not hear many preaching on the anointing these days, and I find this to be a missing link in our teachings. It needs to be brought back to the forefront. If you cannot understand nor know how to move under the anointing of Christ you cannot be successful in finding His direction. Too many ministers are just guessing what God would do rather than be led by His anointing. It is a great fallacy to be led by your own doctrine and beliefs rather than be led by the Holy Spirit. If you just do and say whatever the Master tells you much of your doctrine will begin to fall away. Most doctrines become man’s way of controlling God’s people through what they believe. Tell me what a man believes and I will tell you what that man will do; thus revealing to whom he has true allegiance.
“But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.”
1 John 2:27
What the anointing teaches you is for YOU! This also is one thing that we the Church are at fault for not understanding. When the Holy Spirit begins to teach you, by the anointing of Christ you are faced with a decision, whether to denounce what the Holy Spirit is telling you or offend the brotherhood by denying what mere men have taught you. The fact is that the Holy Spirit is truth, but in every man can be found a lie.
“This is He who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.”
1 John 5:6
Okay, now for a quick recap: we know that we must die to ourselves and not be concerned with what anyone thinks about us as long as we are doing God’s will. We must open ourselves up for the Holy Spirit to teach us the things we need to know for our ministry in order to work in accordance with what our heavenly Father has predestined for you to do in this life as a service to Him. Knowing that when we hear or know what the Holy Spirit wants and we have confirmation that we are hearing correctly then we wait for His timing, knowing when to do what He is calling us to do. As these practices begin to be a part of your way of life you will find Him giving you more and more power and responsibility in His Kingdom.
“For our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit and in much assurance, as you know what kind of men we were among you for your sake.”
1 Thessalonians 1:5
There are various annointings that are directly associated with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. After the Holy Spirit sees that you are one whom He can trust to do whatever He asks of you, a new and fresh anointing will come upon you giving you power and authority into other areas over darkness in people’s lives. While ministering, you may sense the move of the Holy Spirit by an anointing that you discover is leading you to operate in the word of knowledge, healing or both.
As the people begin to flood into your life with various needs you will know their need just by the anointing that rests upon you. Each anointing has a different feel about it and you just have a knowing of what you are to do. If you do not acknowledge the anointing and do something else other than what was given to you, you will miss the opportunity to bless the person who you were to help. You may have one person who needs healing so you search in the Spirit looking how to administer their healing; maybe He will tell you they are healed or He will give you a word of knowledge or tell you to spit in their face. Whatever the anointing empowering you to do, then move as the Holy Spirit gives you the unction, and the results will be powerful. You will be amazed how many things you will learn along this way of living the life of a Christian, and all you have to do is to Pray, Hear and Obey.

“Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will by no means believe.”
Prophecy is the testimony that Jesus is not dead but Alive and Speaking to you and I.
Dear Prophet Kent

Thank you so much! This word is perfect and such a confirmation for me and I say YES and AMEN SO BE IT!!! Thank you for taking the time to seek the Lord for me and for sharing this wonderful insightful word of exhortation and encouragement.
Dear Prophet Kent Simpson
I greet you in the name of Jesus. I read your prophecy on the Elijah List regarding angels. I do not know you but for some strange reason about a week ago, I saw your face in my minds eye and one word “prophecy”. I did not take too much notice at the time and just brushed it off as odd.
Today I am very out of sorts, very weepy and in desperate need to hear from the Lord when lo and behold, exactly one month from the day I first read your prophecy, I read it again and decided to write you in the belief that you have a word for me from the Lord.
I have never done this before and humbly request forgiveness for my presumption but earnestly believe that I am not wrong.
I await your response in Christ Jesus,
