Signs And Wonders Within Reach

Signs And Wonders Within Reach (Kathy Gabler)
We’ve only had peeks of God’s government impact in our lives and families and nation. We have only seen glimpses of God’s order in church history, but God is going to answer our prayer that Jesus taught us to pray: “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done.” (Mt6:10)  That is an invitation to pierce the natural realm with the supernatural.  So, we are going to have to adjust our thinking accordingly.  We are going to have to think differently than previous generations.  We must become convinced the supernatural dynamic of the Kingdom is within reach (Mt10:7) because we were born to participate and demonstrate the Kingdom just like Jesus demonstrated it. Coming under God’s order and government contradicts ruling forces with miracles, signs and wonders as necessary in order to usher in healing, deliverance and reformation.

The USA, Israel and God’s Upholding Word

The USA, Israel and God’s Upholding Word
When people creatively put something together, we are hoping that it will stay together long enough for us or someone else to get some amount of use out of it. But when the Lord our God creates something, He is not simply hoping it will stay together for a little while; He has a plan before He creates it (Isa46:10) and He upholds it by the Word of His power (Heb1:3). We see the chaos in our operative 5 dimensions and tend to focus on it and tend to believe that things will go the way of the deterioration processes within our 5 dimensions. However, our Lord is above those dimensions and comes into those dimensions from His limitless dimensions. He is indeed upon His throne but the Word of His power is already in every dimension. God’s physical sign of His faithfulness upon earth He calls “Jacob” (Isa43:1). That is the word most often used in the Bible when emphasizing the physical lineage of Israel. Israel will always have a physical lineage and will be preserved by the power of Jehovah’s Word that was present when He created “Jacob.” Take hope, people of God. The people of God, redeemed by the blood of Jesus, are being upheld by the Word of His power and that includes a way to overcome chaos which works against our Lord’s purposes. We declare the faithfulness of Jehovah guard the nation of Israel and guard our embassies around the world. The Lord God is not without initiative or resource. It was all in place before He created “Jacob” or this nation, and He is able to create something never seen before to bring His upholding Word to pass (Isa48:6-7).
“But now, thus says the Lord your Creator, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel, ‘Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine!” (Isa43:1)

Our Creator Has A Creative Solution

Blessed is He who is so creative, our Lord God. If He can create such beautiful wonders that our eyes can barely believe what they are seeing, can’t He creatively bring about solutions and resolve concerning us and our nation and Israel? I think the answer is: Well, He’s done it before! 

“Don’t you know anything? Haven’t you been listening? God doesn’t come and go. God lasts. He’s Creator of all you can see or imagine. He doesn’t get tired out, doesn’t pause to catch His breath. And He knows everything, inside and out.” (Isa40:28, Msg)

Increase Of Signs And Wonders

Increase Of Signs And Wonders (Kathy Gabler)
Just by being born again, we’re already positioned for Kingdom thinking.  In John 3:5,  Jesus said being born of water and [of] the Spirit is the way to enter into the Kingdom of God. When you heard the call to be born again, was the emphasis on entering the Kingdom so you could participate in God’s will being done on earth as in heaven, or was the emphasis on escaping hell?  We are not on earth just to get saved, stay saved and go to heaven.  Your salvation is much more awesome.  It is empowerment for life!  You are on earth with a purpose.  You are part of what God is doing in the history of the world, history that has already been written, because God knows the end before the beginning, Isa 46:10. We are here to demonstrate a higher government to a generation.  Isaiah 9:7 says there will be no end to the increase of His Government and Peace.  Therefore, there will be no end to the increase of signs and wonders as His government manifests in powerful contradiction over conditions of darkness.

Signs And Wonders

Signs And Wonders (Kathy Gabler)
The words translated miracle or sign or wonder are, for the most part, interchangeable in the Bible. A working definition is: displays of the supernatural in this natural realm.

That is encouraging in one way because that implies one reason we don’t see signs and wonders is because we don’t SEE them, even though they are on-going. How many of the 5000 plus that were eating on the hillside realized their lunch was a miracle? I’m thinking a good percentage didn’t have a clue! How many thousands of people saw the same star as the three kings, but didn’t know it was a sign and a wonder? When David saw Goliath, he wasn’t looking for a miracle! He was just looking for a rock! However, there were miracles (plural) in the mix that day, beyond the anointed impact of a rock from a sling. The whole scene was a miracle of timing, circumstance and possibly Goliath choosing the wrong helmet that day! Someone who is trained in CPR can easily fail to see the miracle of being in the right place at the right time to participate in the intervention of God in a situation. Isaiah 20:3, calls it a sign and wonder that Isaiah walked naked and barefoot for three years. I’m just not so sure his wife called that a sign and wonder!

We build definition boxes in our minds, then if supernatural interventions don’t fit in our box, we tend to miss it. I submit to you today that our thinking must change and is going to change. We cannot think as mere humans. We need Kingdom thinking as sons. Jesus said in John 14:12-13, “He who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do.”

The Holy Spirit Will Come Upon You

The Holy Spirit Will Come Upon You
The angel Gabriel who shows up on earth about every 2,000 years appeared to a teenager named Mary and told her that, against all odds (Lk 1:26-33) she would fully, miraculously walk out the purposes of God in her generation. Totally stunned at the prospect of it actually happening through such a person as she, Mary asked the angel, “How shall this be?” I think it is obvious that Gabriel’s response to Mary’s incredulity was, “Mary, don’t forget to factor in the Holy Spirit.” viz., “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you…”
Just like in Gen 1:2, the nonproductivity of Mary’s womb took on the order of heaven brought to her by the Spirit of God. And this is what brought that order, that conceiving of heaven into earth to contradict the chaos of darkenss: “And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word.” (Lk1:38) Let us make ourselves as readily available as Mary did and the Holy Spirit will bring the fulfillment of the Word through us too, and we will walk out the purposes of God in our generation.
