Supernatural, Part 3Sunday, September 16, 2012
“Our Supernatural Mandate, II”
16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. …18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.II Corinthians 4:16,18 (NIV)
Two Mistakes in Response to the Supernatural:
God expects us to walk in the Spirit.He expects us to move in the supernatural.
4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.5 Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.6 The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.7 The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so.8 Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.9 You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ.Romans 8:4-9 (NIV)
16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. … 18 But if you are led by the Spirit … 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Galatians 5:16,18,25 (NKJV)
Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you.Luke 10:19 (NLT)
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. John 14:12 (NKJV)
7 As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.Matthew 10:7-8 (NIV)
26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”Genesis 1:26-28 (ESV)
Fill the earth – Heb. Mahleh with means to replenish or bring to fullness.
Subdue it – Heb. Kabash means to bring in into bondage or under control.
Two Dimensions of Advance:
1.Positive – Extending the BLESSINGS of the Kingdom
2.Negative – Pushing back the DARKNESS of Satan’s activity
