Our biggest challenge may be learning how the Spirit prompts us to participate and cooperate with God in the supernatural. I remember when Melissa was a teen and a prophetic sound would stir in her. She would feel like she was about to throw up. Finally instead of getting to such a drastic extreme, she learned that she had something to release when she first heard a phrase or saw a picture. Job 33, tells us that some people hear instruction in dreams and visions. William Branham had a lifetime full of signs and wonders. He learned to hear God and get instruction through detailed visions. These visions set the stage for miracles: A woman sent him a request to come and pray for her daughter who was crippled. He would not go to any of these requests unless the Lord gave him a vision of it. In this case he saw the girl lying on a bed in the corner of the room and her father standing by the bed. He also saw a man sitting by the front window looking outside and her mother was standing by the doorway next to the girl. An old woman was sitting in a rocking chair next to the mother. Then he prayed for the girl and she was healed. When he and his friend arrived at the house, everything was just as it was in the vision except the old woman was not in the rocking chair and no one was seated by the window looking out. So Branham said, “It is not right yet. We will wait.” In the meantime, his friend sat down by the front window and was looking out, and an old woman came from next door and sat in the rocking chair. Then Branham said to bring the girl, and the father picked her up and brought her. Branham laid hands on her and she was completely healed.
One last consideration is the principle of “some plant and some water, but God gives the increase” (1Co3:6-8). ”The Kingdom of God is not a matter of talk, but of power! (1Co 4:20)We are born into this Kingdom to participate in that power and the miracles, signs and wonders will follow.

I will rejoice because the Lord God Most High is actively involved in current events. He will not overlook or ignore unrighteous ploys and will not allow ours or Israel’s or His enemies to prevail. (Ps74)
“Yours is the day, Yours also is the night; You have prepared the light and the sun.
You have established all the boundaries of the earth; You have made summer and winter.
Remember this, O Lord, that the enemy has reviled, And a foolish people has spurned Your name.
Do not deliver the soul of Your turtledove to the wild beast; Do not forget the life of Your afflicted forever.
Consider the covenant; For the dark places of the Land are full of the habitations of violence.
Let not the oppressed return dishonored; Let the afflicted and needy praise Your name.” (Ps74:16-21)
Signs, Wonders And Hearing (Kathy)
Recently, our daughter Melissa heard during worship, “It’s time to exhale.” She felt it was God in the moment and stepped up and released those words in song. To her it was simply a proclamation to put in the atmosphere, but it was a sign and wonder to a pulmonary doctor in the congregation. He was so excited he went to the pastor to tell him that the song was healing instructions for a patient of his that was also there in the service. It was a sign and wonder to the patient also. (She’d had a tracheotomy).
Hearing instruction and obeying the instructions are the basic essentials for miracles, signs and wonders. It is highly possible that the instructions will be as unique as the participants. Mozart heard a unique sound and gave instructions to the instruments for the sound of light being created during creation in Genesis. When the orchestra played his music, supernaturally, light came up out of the orchestra pit and the audience was frightened with the sign and wonder. Isaiah didn’t just get up one day and decide to become The Nude Wonder-Boy, he was following instruction and obeying God for a governmental turnover in a nation. Elisha hadn’t practiced throwing a stick in lakes to make iron swim, but he had practiced hearing God. When he heard God in the moment, the axe miraculously floated.
Signs And Wonders And God In The Moment (Kathy Gabler)
It’s amazing that after over 2000 years we still struggle to think like the Last Adam, but we haven’t really been trained by the church or experience to take dominion and participate in the increase of God’s government. No Wonder, before Jesus said the Kingdom of heaven is within reach (Matt4:17), He said repent (consider things differently and change your mind.) We can repent and learn to think beyond what is to what should be. Kingdom thinking impacts the natural with the supernatural! (Matt6:10) One key to being part of that impact is that we do not look for miracles, signs and wonders; rather, we look for God in the moment.
Signs And Wonders And Kingdom Thinking (Kathy Gabler)
Kingdom thinking is not just the latest spiritual fad. That is where Adam and Eve started. The garden reflected the desire and design of God, the security and peace of God’s order and the potential of God to flourish in calling and purpose and fulfillment. They lived in the righteousness, peace and joy that is the Kingdom (Rom14:17). God’s will was being done on earth as it was in heaven! When Adam and Eve chose to do their will on earth instead of His, that separated mankind from Kingdom thinking, and Kingdom thinking became the exception instead of the rule, until, the King of Kings, Jesus, the Last Adam (1Co15:45), restored what was lost and brought it within reach again.
