“Moving into Signs and Wonders”
Series #29 ‘A Prophet’s Memoirs & Testimonials’
Recorded: August 14, 2022
Many of us fall into the trap of condemning those who do not know or respect our Lord Jesus, but in doing so we miss the blessing and opportunity that our Lord gives us to bring them into His Presents.
Jesus wants us to be obedient to His call. If you are where Jesus wants you to be at the right time and the right place, you will see signs and wonders and the unbelievers will believe. Some believers feel we are putting too much emphasis on the gifts of the Holy Spirit and spiritualistic. They instruct us to evangelize more than move in the gifts. Well, this is what Jesus said about signs and wonders: “Unless you see signs and wonders, you will by no means believe” (John 4:48 NKJV). Need I say more? Prophetic evangelism is the way our Lord is Leading His People during this hostel spiritual age we now live in. “But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an uninformed person comes in, he is convinced by all, he is convicted by all. And thus, the secrets of his heart are revealed; and so, falling on his face, he will worship God and report that God is truly among you” (1 Corinthians 14:24-25 NKJV).
Many people want to move in the signs and wonders but do not want to give up their public image or be tagged as a spiritual fanatic. They are more concerned about their reputation than being used of G3D. They want to experience the Power of G3D but are not willing to yield to Him and His Ways. Most everyone I talk to wants to see G3D more in the church, but how are we going to do that? From the pulpits we have spent far too many years teaching the miracle working powers of G3D without His demonstration. Many words have been given to thousands upon thousands of folks, claiming they have this or that gift but most of those people are still waiting for G3D to start using them. Over the years, a few have stepped out and given their all to G3D and they started moving into their specialized gift. We can only talk about signs and wonders for so long before people stop believing. The people who are lost and lukewarm must see the signs and wonders that we preach and teach about so that they may believe as scripture says, “For the Kingdom of G3D is not in word but in power” (1 Corinthians 4:20 NKJV). “Having a form of godliness but denying its power” (2 Timothy 3:5 NKJV).
Jesus Christ is not in the entertainment business. Don’t think that we are going to be entertained by the Holy Spirit. If you want to see the gifts fade away, then stop bringing the lost into church. The signs and wonders are for unbelievers to witness so that they may believe as well as help the believers with their needs, but they are not to entertain the church.
Many times, we are surrounded by those who need Jesus Christ but are not Christians. They need a miracle in their lives. When you have this combination, it is time to make way for the signs and wonders of G3D to flow through you. This is the time when G3D wants to show His best. You can say to them in faith, “My G3D will fix your problem if you give Him your life. Do you want to be healed? If not, then go your own way. But if you want my G3D, to heal you then give yourself to Him right now.” Then watch and see what G3D will do. This is what it is all about! Even prophecies, words of knowledge and wisdom, are for this purpose – so that they may believe.
When a prophetic word is given, it is for the purpose of knowing that G3D can speak directly to us. Christ will reveal to you that the prophetic word given is the truth. The gifts and callings of G3D are irrevocable. The main reason we have the gift of prophecy is to edify, exhort, and build up the church so that they may change a lost and dying world.
There are many who have the gift of healing(s). “Healings” is plural. Each one has a gift for different healings. One might be able to pray and remove headaches. Another may have the gift for healing diabetes but not headaches. Each person needs to find their healing gift. Many get frustrated because of ignorance. We do not understand the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven.
There is a “vein” that you need to flow in for your gift to work 100% of the time. When you preach about hearing G3D, they will hear G3D. If you preach about healing, they will be healed. And if you preach about demons, guess what? They will find demons. I preach so that people are encouraged and that they may receive an introduction to Christ our Lord and Christianity.
It does not matter how long you have been a Christian. You can be present in the natural but not yet arrived in the spiritual. You do not need to be a biblical scholar to be able to move in the Holy Spirit. Some of the most anointed people are those who cannot read or write. G3D chooses the foolish. He does not choose the noble or the wise but the willing, the yielded. This is what G3D wants: “For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called” (1 Corinthians 1:26 NKJV).
Many people are waiting for G3D to move in their lives after they finish reading all the books of the bible. Worshiping your Bible will not get you signs and wonders! But worshiping the One the Bible is about will. There is so much more to learn about Jesus by walking and talking to Him daily. You will learn so much more by allowing Him to use you ministering in signs and wonders than sitting in a thousand church pews for a thousand years. I have learned more about our Lord Jesus by hearing Him for others than I could ever learn from ten-thousand sermons or teachings.
We need to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit so that we will know what he wants us to do. We need to always have our spiritual antennas up. Like Apostle Paul said, “Pray without ceasing,” meaning be in a state of mind to hear The Spirit G3D 24/7/365. The only effective way for this to happen is to turn off the world and turn up the Voice of Christ in your life.
It is so easy to listen to the spirit of fear, but scripture says do not entertain the devil and he will flee. Do not listen to the voice of the devil when he brings fear into your life. “Therefore, submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you” (James 4:7 NKJV).
Seek the Lord and ask Him what to do, and you will receive revelation on how to get out of the situation, but only if you humble yourself before Him. There is more hope available than you know. Know who you are in Christ. Get out of your identity crisis and you will find much, much more to this life than retiring after thirty years of service and collecting your pension. Walking with Jesus and allowing Him to use you in signs and wonders is a big part of the abundant life He Promised.
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10 NKJV).
