We were made for signs and wonders! “Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion” (Isaiah 8:18).
God created man in His image! “And 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 fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them” (Genesis 1:26-27).
God created man long before He formed him! “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul” (Genesis 2:7).
Time is NOT of the essence with God! “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:8-9). Jesus was slain before the foundation of the world! “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world” (Revelation 13:8).
We need to understand that He has ALREADY Blessed us with all things “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ” (Ephesians 1:3). God chose us before the foundation of the world. “According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love” (Ephesians 1:4). Everything you ever need is yours! You have to take it!
Revelation knowledge comes directly from God to your spirit; it is the exact knowledge from God. Then it is illuminated in your mind. “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust” (2 Peter 1:3-4). We already have this; He isn’t going to give it to us. He isn’t going to be – you are violating the law of God with this belief.
Sense knowledge comes through education and human reasoning, not revelation from God.
Adam was supposed to live forever: “And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” (Genesis 2:15-17). Death is part of the curse.
We are one with God. Adam received the names for the animals from revelation from God. “And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field” (Genesis 2:19-20). If you separate fish from the ocean, they die. If you separate man from God, man dies.
To receive revelation from God, we need to walk in the Spirit. “If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you” (John 14:15-17). The Holy Spirit teaches you all things and brings all things to your remembrance. “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you: (John 14:26). And, “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come” (john 16:13).
We have the mind of Christ when we live with Him and walk in the Spirit. God freely gives us ALL things! “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ” (1 Corinthians 2:12-17).
We walk in the Spirit, not by our flesh. We must dominate our flesh. “And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory” (1 Corinthians 2:4-8).
You can’t have dominion over satan without revelation from God. You must take no thought saying…… Everything in the world is fear based. Do not minimize the power of your thoughts! Cast them down. Don’t say that thought satan put in your mind! Satan blinds our minds and likes nothing better that we confess the fear based thoughts he gives us. We need to come against fear by taking authority over it. And we need to renew our minds daily to God’s Word and meditate on it day and night.
God made Abraham the father of many nations before the foundation of the world. “(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were: (Romans 4:17).
You call the things you are believing for as though they are. NOW! This is not a future event; you can’t say, “I’m going to be healed.” That violates God’s law and puts you under time – we are not trapped in time. We will never have dominion if we live this way! And, we need to know that Bible hope is not, “I sure hope so”! That relegates that hope to a future time that will NEVER come! What did Abraham do? “Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be” (Romans 4:18). God has ALREADY done it! Hope is an earnest, intense expectation. It already belongs to you!
Our job is to say what God says! In Mark 11, Jesus spoke to the tree and it obeyed Him. He told us the things I do you will do also. He spoke light to darkness and we need to do the same. We receive healing, salvation, finances, etc. Faith is in promise that we have from God!
Do ALL what God is telling you to do. Renew your mind daily to the Word and meditate on it!
