The Power of Perspective P3: The Miraculous

I love today’s world, where so many are finding heaven’s expression. The arts and creativity are leading us into a new renaissance, and opportunities abound for so many pursuing God-given dreams with their gifting and skills. I pray that this momentum continues, because the more that heaven invades earth through creativity, the more that chains will break, and the more the presence of God will begin to invade people’s lives.

I believe that we are living in a time that God is beginning to take truths established in previous generations, and with a masterful hand, build on them to manifest a greater Kingdom expression in the earth.  We are living in a time where revelation that used to take 30 years to establish, may only take 3 years to establish. In times of transition like this, it is easy to lose perspective. I would like to ground us with one more truth that can never go away as long as we live in these earthly bodies. One more time, let’s realign our life according to a Kingdom perspective.

Perspective #3: Matthew 10:8 in the New Living Translation says: Heal the sick, raise the dead, cure those with leprosy, and cast out demons. Give as freely as you have received!

No matter where we find ourselves in life, no matter what season, no matter what assignment, we cannot forget that this Kingdom is a Kingdom of POWER. Jesus’ command and our follow through to heal the sick and to raise the dead is a proclamation to every principality and power in the heavenly realms that His infinite and boundless wisdom has been put on display through Jesus Christ. When we received Christ, we received POWER. That power is in us as a river that flows through our voices, our gifts, and our actions. Get some perspective and take a look at how God has advanced the Kingdom through his people throughout history. It’s ALWAYS been by preaching that was backed up by demonstrations of the miraculous. In fact, in the early days of the church, the Bible implies in Acts 19:11 that miracles were so common, that “God did EXTRAORDINARY miracles through Paul”.

Miracles are to be a regular occurrence in the Kingdom. Expressions of power and even extraordinary miracles, dead raisings, and angelic encounters are a natural part of Heaven‘s influence and extension into the earth. It’s not only a command, but the fruit and proof of the sons of God in the earth. We were born to do the impossible, things that confound this world and put the wisdom of God on display. Today I challenge you to go for miracles, to go for the impossible, to bring the dead back to life, and in doing so, to transform the world as we know it for generations to come.
