The Kingdom of God is a supernatural Kingdom. We, as believers in Jesus, were supernaturally birthed into that Kingdom, and the Scriptures indicate that there was made available to us supernatural “tools” to live the life and do the works of that Kingdom.
Quite frankly, God has called Christians to be a supernatural expression of His supernatural Kingdom. As believers, God has called us to function “…in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not rest on the wisdom of men but on the power of God” (1 Cor. 2:4,5).
“For the Kingdom of God does not consist in words but in power” 1 Cor. 4:20.
We read in the Bible that Jesus demonstrated the Kingdom of God when He exhibited signs and wonders, going about pardoning sin, healing the sick, performing miracles, casting out demons and raising the dead Lk. 7:21-23.
He then trained His disciples to do likewise Matt. 10:7,8, and told them to train their disciples to do likewise Matt. 28:18-20.
Then He said; “Truly, truly, I say unto you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do because I go to My Father” John 14:12.
We are even told in several places to “earnestly desire spiritual gifts”1 Cor. 12:31 & 14:1 There are actually whole sections of Scripture devoted to instruction on the proper use of the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit for the common Christian.
God has called us as believers to more than just religious rote and ritual; that we be more than simply a “Christian” social club. In fact, the Scriptures warn us that one of the characteristics of the end times would be that there would be a lot of “religious” people who hold to a hollow form of religion that is void of supernatural power. In 2 Timothy 3:1-5 we are warned that in the last days men will hold to a form of godliness but deny its power.
God has called us into splendid demonstrations of love and power as He builds His church and confirms His word with supernatural signs following Mark 16:20. What the world needs now is a truly supernatural Christianity.
