Building A Supernatural Church!

Praise God!

This past week has been another exciting adventure with God as He is revealing more and more of His glory in our meetings. Yesterday's encounter with God was another confirmation of what He is saying to us concerning His purpose for Kingdom Life. Richard Maybery gave us the following prophecy during his visit two weeks ago:

“I saw a kingly crown coming down from heaven and landing in the front. The King of glory has come down among you and He has anointed this church plant with His power and His kingly presence. This church has the stamp of kingly royalty upon it and it has kingly royalty that will attract the people that he has predestined for this church and it is His kingly royalty that will replace the rags of filth and rags of brokenness with robes of righteousness and healing!”

Abba, Father is releasing us to be the supernatural church He has made us to be in accordance with His "pleasure and will" (Eph.1:5); "the riches of God's grace" (Eph.1:7) and "the plan of Him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will" (Eph.1:11). Hallelujah!

For us to realise our identity and purpose as God's supernatural people, we need spiritual wisdom and revelation and our hearts to be enlightened (Eph. 1:17,18). Then we will,

  • know God better (Eph.1:17)
  • know the hope to which he has called us (Eph.1:18)
  • know the riches of the glorious inheritance in the saints (Eph.1:18)
  • know his power for us who believe (Eph.1:19)

The Lord showed us from Ephesians 1:19-23 that,

  • God's power is incomparable
  • God's power is His mighty strength
  • God's power raised Jesus to the heavenly realm
  • God's power gave Jesus authority over every authority, rule and dominion now!
  • God's power gave Jesus the highest title
  • God's power placed all things under Jesus' feet

This awesome power is at work in those who believe and is able to do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine as we release it by faith! It is according to the power that is within us that God wants to align the natural according to the supernatural and bring His Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven! Glory to God!

We praise God for wonderful testimonies of people being saved and healed. Yesterday one of our people testified to being healed of neck pain due to a deformity that she had had caused by polio! God is giving us words of knowledge, spiritual revelation and wonderful encounters with Him during the worship, the preaching of the Word, ministry and prayer. Thank you Father!

We give the Lord all the glory and the praise for blessing us with the riches of His grace!

Quote of the week:

"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we can ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen." Ephesians 3:20,21
