THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH

Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant. I Corinthians 12:1

    When one is baptized in the Holy Spirit, he receives a spiritual gift and is empowered to use it to edify the body of Christ and to employ it in the ministry of Jesus. We have been given all the gifts of the Spirit as members of Christ's supernatural body in the earth!

    The baptism in the Holy Spirit is rarely spoken of nowadays but must again be taught and utilized in the body in order to empower us to be overcomers and ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus was our example when John baptized Him in water and then the heavens opened, and the Holy Spirit descended upon Him in the form of a dove empowering Him to fulfill His ministry on earth!

    After my conversion experience, being set free from sin and transformed into a new creation in Christ, I began to hear about Spirit baptism and began to seek it, and not long after I received it in a meeting one night and I was never the same again! I began to eventually speak in tongues and the Word came alive to me as well as revelation knowledge that flowed from the very throne of God! If you are truly saved and your sins are forgiven and washed away by the Savior's blood, then ask the Lord to baptize you with His Holy Spirit and I promise you will never be the same!

    John the Baptist said, "I baptize you with water, but One mightier than I is coming, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire." Luke 3:16

THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH

    How is it then brethren? When you come together, each of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification. I Corinthians 14:26

    This is God's order of service for His body of believers! When was the last time you gave a message or a psalm, tongue or revelation in a church service? Probably like most, never! Pastor dominates the services because he has the whole loaf! Remember what we learned about the old priesthood, the shepherd/sheep model, which by the way Jesus did away with on the cross!

    If the organs in your body stopped working you would die and so it is in the supernatural body, all the parts have a part! This is for edification, building up the body! If all the parts were giving their God-given gifts out to the rest of their brothers and sisters we would again be on fire for Jesus! Imagine the excitement of hearing a message in tongues by one person and then an interpretation from another or a divine revelation straight from the throne of the Most High!

    Do you see what we have been missing all of these years because of the tradition of men and the dead religious services given by men who have blocked the body from operating in their gifts and have literally turned God's supernatural church into a spiritual quadriplegic! It is high time for the saints to assemble in the Spirit and operate in our God-given gifts and edify one another to fulfill our divine destiny!

    Even so, since you are zealous for spiritual gifts, let it be done for the edification of the church that you seek to excel. I Corinthians 14:12

THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH

    And God has appointed these in the church first: apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, various kinds of tongues. I Corinthians 12:28

    Imagine walking into the local First Whatever church on any corner and asking for the miracle department or the varieties of tongues department, they would think you were crazy! Where's the pastor, sorry not mentioned, but this is God's Divine Design for His Supernatural Church.

    Most normal man-made, local consumer-driven, only on Sunday churches are led by the Pastor, associate pastor, youth leader, worship leader, and church secretary! This is totally foreign to the First Pentecostal, sold-out, blood-washed, Holy Ghost-filled disciples of Jerusalem! Spirit-led, no pastor insight, apostolic in nature Supernatural Church!

    In fact, if you were suddenly translated back to the first-century church and tried to explain what the modern-day church looked like, they wouldn't have a clue what you were talking about! It would be totally alien to them! This is why we need to get back to the "Divine Design" of what Jesus intended for us in the 21st century Supernatural Church!

    Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles? Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? But earnestly desire the best gifts. And yet I show you a more excellent way. I Corinthians 12:29-31

THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH

    For the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many are one body, so also is Christ. For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body. I Corinthians 12:12,13

    The supernatural body of Christ is comprised of new creations, washed in the Savior's blood and baptized in His Spirit. Born again into new spiritual beings, not of this world, the members of Christ's body have a variety of gifts and functions that make up the Person of Christ in the earth in the Spirit!

    In essence Jesus is resurrected again by the unity of His members assembled together in the Spirit with all the gifts and callings He had while on the earth! Power and authority, healing and deliverance, supernatural signs, wonders and miracles, the body of Christ has all the attributes of the Lord Jesus Christ in the earth!

    As Jesus was the expression of God in the earth, so we are the expression of Jesus, a replica of the Son of the living God! Destined to conquer, armed to defeat the powers of darkness and to reap a harvest of lost souls from the earth, the body of the living Christ is a formidable force to be reckoned with.

    If the whole body were and eye (I) where would be the hearing, where would be the smelling? But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased. And if they were all one member, where would the body be? I Corinthians 12:17-19

THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH

    That we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the Head-Christ. Ephesians 4:14,15

    In the natural working of the human body, the head which contains the brain, leads the body. So, in the supernatural body you would think that the head, the pastor would also lead the body, but the pastor is not the head, Jesus is! 

    We who comprise the body of Christ in the earth are all children of God, but sadly many in the body today are actually child-like in that they are not trained or equipped to serve in the body. Because this model of the body has been perverted, no one is discipled or trained in the Word and the outcome is, no spiritual growth! 

    Don't get me wrong there are many godly pastors who operate in the Spirit and do what they are called to, but they are not called to lead. I have seen many a pastor fail or even fall away because he stepped into the headship of the body and became a king or ruler when that position is reserved for the Lord Jesus Christ! Pride comes before a fall!

    The whole body is joined and knit together by what every joint (us) supplies, according to the effective working by which every part (us) does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. Ephesians 4:16

THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH

    And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints (us) for the work of ministry for the edifying (building up) of the body of Christ. Ephesians 4:11,12

    Contrary to popular belief we are the ones who do the work of ministry, but in today's fast-paced consumer-driven churches pastor does it all! Marry/bury, visit the sick, help the poor, etc. while the body just shows up and writes a check! But that is not the way Jesus set it up!

    The five-fold ministry teams are to equip us for the work of service and this gives the opportunity to reach many more than one man could ever do. Jesus never meant for one man to lead a congregation but for a plurality of elders to have oversight of His body! Remember it is relatively easy for the enemy to deceive one man, but to deceive a group of men in agreement is almost impossible!

    In the past few decades, the five-fold ministry has been received by the body of Christ, the apostle, one of the last to be acknowledged even though he holds the blueprint and Divine design of God's church are now recognized as a gift given by God to the body.

    Till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4:13

THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH PART VIII

    As you, therefore, have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving. Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. Colossians 2:6-8

    For eons, man has passed down his traditions and doctrines on an unsuspecting population of deceived people. Deceived themselves, they apply their tradition to each new generation, each time watering down the truth a little more until we are in the midst of a false and dangerous church deceiving and being deceived!

    For the most part, the modern-day evangelical church's doctrinal statement consists of one praying a prayer, getting baptized, joining the church and tithing. Instead of making disciples of Jesus Christ, Sunday school has become discipleship which for the most part is a dead work! Jesus said, "Go into all the world and make disciples!" Sadly, most are trapped in a building led by a pastor who convinces the congregation to stay and not obey the Lord to Go!

    In the beginning, the first one hundred twenty were all filled with power and authority to give witness to the resurrection and to perform miracles, signs and wonders that resulted in thousands coming to the Lord, so many that they had to sell their possessions and invite new converts into their homes having all things in common!

    For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him who is the Head of all principality and power. Colossians 2:9,10

THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH

    I beseech you, therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:1

    Jesus presented His body as a living sacrifice for our sins as He died on the cross, an example for us to give our bodies back to Him in service! In other words, we sacrifice our lives for the One who sacrificed His for us!

    We have been so programmed by the traditions and doctrines of men and demons that going to church is all we are responsible to do and when we don't, guilt tries to make us ashamed if we missed a service. Have you ever heard anyone say, "I need to go to church?" Instead, you need to say, "I am the church, I don't go, I am!"

    This is where deception clouds our vision of what the Supernatural Church really is, Jesus Christ in the earth today, in us! Not a place to go, once a week, twice a year, or whenever we feel guilty, but we are the actual body of the risen Lord and Savior in the Spirit! Christ in us, the hope of glory!

    And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2

THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH

    But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. I Peter 2:9

    Under the old covenant men would come to God through a human mediator, the High Priest who would, in turn, go into the Holy of Holies to make a sacrifice to atone for the sins of the people. Today under the new covenant we have a Divine Mediator, the Lord Jesus Christ who shed His own blood to make a way for us to go directly into the very throne of the Most High!

    We who are born again new creations in Christ are a royal priesthood able to minister under the supreme authority and power of God! We can now enter through the blood of Christ into His presence without the aid of a human priest. The church today lacks this ability, for the most part, do to the spiritual condition of many members who are not saved or enlightened to the truth of God's word. The present-day church is set up like the old testament model with a shepherd/sheep mentality!

    The pastor is the High Priest and the congregation are just called to sit, sing, pray, listen, shut up and tithe! This model is found nowhere in scripture, especially for a pastor to lead an assembly of royal priests! Likened to a human body the supernatural body of Christ is comprised of many members who all have a certain function to accomplish just as our own human body, such as the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, and so on! Remember, we are His body in the earth!

THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH

    Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. I Peter 2:4,5

    This is the supernatural church, a house made of living, breathing spirit filled stones, submitted under the leading of Holy Spirit and endowed with power and authority from the Lord Jesus Christ, the author, finisher and Apostle of our faith!

    Jesus, being the Chief Cornerstone chose twelve foundational stones who would become apostles, who in turn would start other supernatural churches and the divine multiplication would begin and flourish throughout the world! This example of the church that Jesus designed and built lasted for years until man began to get his hands on it and defiled the whole thing!

    When Constantine made Christianity the state religion, the supernatural church was defiled and lost its power becoming a place to go instead of the Person of Christ! Over the ages many pagan practices were added and man became the head instead of Christ! Today we have a sad expression of what Jesus intended His church to be with one on every corner, open for business and deceiving millions with false doctrine and the tradition of men.

    But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly (Festal Gathering) and church of the firstborn who are registered in Heaven, (Lamb's book of life) to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, to Jesus the Mediator of a new covenant. Hebrews 12:22-24

THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH

Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, and offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling aroma. Ephesians 5:1,2

    Jesus came to earth for two main reasons: to take away the sins of those who repent and to build His church. He gave us an example to follow as He died for us, so we are to die to self and the things of the world in submission to Him.

    In regards to the divine construction of His church we are to imitate what He did in order to begin the work. As in the beginning there were three, the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit and all of Creation began by the ability of three to agree in faith! With the power of agreement and by faith, the Godhead spoke into existence the entire universe!

    Jesus began the work by choosing two disciples and the beginning of what I call the "T-Cell," the three in agreement believing for divine multiplication. A part of the natural human immune system the spiritual T-Cell also protects those in agreement from demonic attack. Three believers in agreement are a powerful weapon in regards to spiritual warfare!

    "Again, I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in Heaven. "For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them." Matthew 18:19.20

Therefore of these men who have accompanied us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, beginning with the baptism of John to that day when He was taken up from us, one of these must become a witness with us of His resurrection. Acts 1:21,22

    Judas betrayed the Lord and was dead and that left eleven disciples, so why in the world would the remaining feel it necessary to pick a twelfth? Because twelve is the number of the government of God.

    The supernatural church of the living God must be built according to the divine design or it will just be another dead, man-made work like so many today in the world. The number twelve also involves warfare in that if one can put a thousand to flight of the enemies of God, and two, ten thousand, twelve can put one hundred trillion to flight!Twelve represents power, authority and foundation for the body of Christ! Ref. Revelation 21:10-22

    There are twelve hours that rule the day and twelve rule the night, twelve months rule the year and there were twelve disciples who became twelve apostles to rule the church and so on! There is supernatural power in the number twelve to rule and reign in God's kingdom come to earth!

    "Therefore whoever hears these sayings of mine (word of God) and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock." Matthew 7:24

Jesus asked His disciples, "Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?" Matthew 16:13

    Some said, John the Baptist, some Elijah, others Jeremiah or one of the prophets. And He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Peter answered and said, "You are the Christ, Son of the living God." Peter received a revelation directly from the very throne of God that Jesus was the "Anointed One," God's own Son!

    Jesus told Peter that he was blessed because he had received a revelation of who He was, and then He said that on this rock I will build my church. Many think that Jesus was speaking of Peter being the rock, but it was revelation knowledge given by the Holy Spirit that His church was to be built on.

    The true church of Jesus Christ is built on the supernatural revelation and vision given by Holy Spirit and not on the fleshly dreams of deceived men. Many a man has rented a building, filled it with chairs and hoped to fill it with tithers, but the only evident signs are the ones in the front yard with the time and temperature!

    "I will build My church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it," Matthew 16:18

THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH

    "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in Judea and Samaria and to the end of the earth." Acts 1:8

    All together in one accord waiting on the promise of the Holy Spirit being poured out upon them and all of a sudden, a mighty rushing wind filled the whole house and they were all filled with God's Holy Spirit!

    In that very instance, a supernatural body was created and empowered to be the Christ in the earth. An exact replica of the Lord expressed in new creation bodies bound together in the Spirit. Born again, blood-washed beings, filled and anointed to serve in a fallen world of lost and dying people.

    These disciples witnessed what God looked like and what His character resembled in the human body of Jesus! God incarnate! Now that Jesus had ascended to the right hand of God He left His presence in His body of believers, His supernatural church!

    Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Acts 2:3,4

SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES

So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into Heaven and sat down at the right hand of God. Mark 16:19

    Jesus had spent three and a half years investing His life in twelve men, who would later become the spiritual government of God, less one. He came to build His "Supernatural Church" and take away the sins of the world by His death, burial and resurrection.

    The men He chose were commissioned and sent out to continue the construction of the most powerful entity the world has ever seen! As Jesus was taken up He would send upon them the Holy Spirit to empower His spiritual body in the earth. The newly appointed apostles chose Matthias to replace Judas and the governmental foundation was complete!

    Told to wait in Jerusalem they and 120 sold-out disciples of Christ were together in one accord and all of a sudden the Holy Spirit came upon them and filled them with power! They all spoke in tongues and as the result of Peter's preaching, 3000 were saved and the "Supernatural Church" was well on its way to reap a harvest from the earth!

    And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen. Mark 16:20

SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES

    Simon Peter said to the disciples, "I am going fishing." They said to him, "We are going with you also." They went out and immediately got into the boat, and that night they caught nothing. John 21:3

    In order to flow in the supernatural, one must obey the Lord in every aspect of life and He must be Lord of everything you do! Even fishing if you want to catch anything. The disciples went out on their own and caught nothing until Jesus appeared and spoke the truth to them.

    After fishing all night long, they caught nothing and Jesus said to them from the shore, "Children, have you any food?" They answered him, “No." And He said to them, "Cast your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some." So they cast, and now were not able to draw it in because of the multitude of fish.

    Are you fishing on the wrong side of the boat? Are your prayers being answered and are you seeing the supernatural provision of the Lord in your life? If not, repent of living your own life and not submitting under the Lordship of Jesus in all things! Once you have given all to Him you will see the signs. wonders and miracles He has in store for you!

    Simon Peter went up and dragged the net to land, full of large fish, one hundred fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not broken. John 21:11

SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES

“That you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.” Ephesians 1:18-21

    If Christ was not resurrected we would not have eternal life through the transformation of our humanly bodies into born again new creations in Christ! No longer of this earth we are now spiritual beings encased in flesh until the time of our heavenly departure in which in the twinkling of an eye we will be with Jesus!

    Many never reach their supernatural potential as believers because they are too busy living normal worldly lives, never venturing out into the supernatural realm of the Spirit. Like Peter when Jesus asked him to get out of the boat and come to Him on the stormy sea, he was afraid but he actually walked on water until he took his eyes off of Jesus!

    Years ago at Time Square Church in New York City as we attended the service there was an old man who was jumping up and down throughout the entire praise and worship time and I asked someone what was the deal with him? They said he was raised from the dead! Praise God, the power of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ!

     “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you.”  I Peter 1:3,4

SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES

Then Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. And Pilate said to them, "Behold, the Man!" Therefore when the chief priests and officers saw Him they cried out saying, "Crucify Him, crucify Him!" Pilate said to them, "You take Him and crucify Him, for I find no fault in Him." John 19:5,6

    The Lamb of God was being inspected for any blemish by the chief priests and the officers before He was to be sacrificed for our sins! Pilate found no guilt and neither did the angry mob stirred to a frenzy by the devil!

    Jesus was about to pay the ultimate price for our sin and rebellion who are worthy ourselves of the debt and deserve the punishment He took upon Himself. God became a living, breathing Man in order to become a perfect sacrifice for our sins, iniquities and transgressions committed in our ignorance.

    The Son of God bled in seven specific places to set us completely free to live a righteous life by the power of the Most High! Our sins were washed away, our sicknesses healed and He delivered us from the powers of darkness! When on the cross the angels tore the veil of separation in two that kept man out of God's presence allowing us access to the very throne of the Most High!  

    "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." John 3:16,17
