How to Walk In the Supernatural Power of God
The Revelation of a Supernatural God
Man has tried to know his Creator through intellectual means, but this has proven impossible because God can be known only through revelation. In fact, He has always desired for us to know Him intimately and to experience His attributes, strengths, and virtues. This is why He sent us His Holy Spirit. No person has the mental ability to describe the infinite or the eternal.
However, I will try to present a basic and uncomplicated description that will help you to understand Him in human terms.
Who is God?
God is a ___________ (1), _________ (2), and immutable being with supernatural attributes and abilities. He dwells in the dimension of eternity – the spiritual realm – and manifests invisible form in the natural dimension.
Thus says the High and Lofty One who inhabits eternity (Isaiah57:15)
What is revelation?
In Greek, “revelation” is the word apokalypsis which means “laying bare, making naked… a ____________ (3) of truth, instruction concerning things before unknown.”
This expression is used, mostly, to express something that exists in the spiritual realm, and it expresses “spiritual perception.” Revelation means to suddenly understand something without research or natural means of learning.
Revelation is the knowledge of god revealed to our spirits, and it is received by spiritually seeing, hearing, and perceiving. This process is referred to as spiritual perception.” Revelation allows us to __________ (4) understand something without the aid of the natural senses.
Flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, My Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 16:17)
To receive revelation from God is to see as He sees, to hear as He hears, and to
perceive as He perceives.
Revelation includes knowing things you should not know, seeing things that have yet to occur, and ____________ (5) things without prior knowledge. It is the mind of God revealed so that mankind can exercise dominion over time, space, and matter.
In the absence of progressive divine revelation, people tend to turn to formal _________ (6) intellectual education, much of which serves to discredit faith. Intellectual knowledge has its rightful place in society, but it is a poor substitute for spiritual knowledge.
Who Is the Source of Revealed Knowledge?
The Source of all revelation is the ______ ________ (7). He is the only channel that gives us access to God’s revealed wisdom or knowledge. The Hole Spirit hears what is said in heaven and repeats it to men and women on earth. We cannot know God without the help of the Holy Spirit.
Four Truths That Can Be Known Only Through Revelation
• The nature of _____ (8)
• The nature of _____ (9)
• The origin of man
• The origin of life
God’s Revelation Depends On:
• God’s ______ (10)
• God’s ______ (11)
God said that in the last days, ___________ (12) would increase (see Daniel 12:3-4) because it is His will to fill the earth with His glory. (See Numbers 14:21.) I believe that we are living in those last days, days in which the manifestation of His glory will be evident everywhere.
Your faith will be strongest in the area in which you have the greatest __________ (13) knowledge from God. Likewise, your faith will be weakest where you lack revelation or have little of it.
What Are the Two Realms That Exist?
• The _________ (14) realm
• The ______________ (15) realm
The enemy establishes a stronghold where God’s knowledge and revelation do not
What is the natural realm? It is the dimension that is subject to the ______ (16), space, and matter a dimension that can be accessed only through the physical senses.
What is the supernatural realm? It is the dimension that operates _______ (17) natural laws. It is the spiritual realm – permanent, invisible, and eternal – located outside of time. It exercises dominion over the natural realm. The spiritual realm can be accessed only by faith.
We do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:18)
What is a miracle?
I define a miracle as “the supernatural _______________ (18) of God that interrupts the normal course of the natural life.” When God stops the clock of time and puts His finger on a situation, a miracle takes place. When He removes His finger, natural time resumes once again. He is a God of miracles. And we see this in the following examples from Scripture.
The Two Sources of Supernatural Power
• _____ (19)
• _______ (20)
Any supernatural power that does not come from God is from Satan. Therefore, we must be _______ (21) to avoid being __________ (22).
Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it.” (Genesis 1:28)
Man was created with God’s supernatural power to exercise dominion and __________ (23) on the earth. He was not created to trust solely in his natural abilities, mind, reasoning, or any other source of sensorial knowledge offered by the world. Man was created to walk in the supernatural power of God.
The Supernatural God Revealed Himself Through Jesus And Peter answered [Jesus] and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” So [Jesus] said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. (Matthew 14:28-29)
Enemies of the Supernatural God
1. ___________ (24) Therefore my people have gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge. (Isaiah 5:13) When the people lack knowledge, they are held captive in their ignorance.
2. Bad __________ (25) Theology is the study of God through the id and reason. When we study God with improper motivation, or without inspiration, illumination and revelation from the Holy Spirit, theology becomes carnal. We need theology, but only that which comes by revelation imparted by the Holy Spirit.
3. ___________ (26) Humanism is the collection of philosophical ideas that elevate man to the highest position in terms of esteem.
4. The “Spirit of Jezebel,” or witchcraft O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth…? (Galatians 3:1)
The apostle Paul used the word “bewitched,” which means “to bring evil on one by
feigning praise or an evil eye… to charm, to bewitch.” In Paul’s mind, witchcraft was
blinding the people’s understanding and keeping them from recognizing the redeeming
work of Christ on the cross.
The door to witchcraft is rebellion, which consists of stirring up or subverting any
authorities established by God. Rebellion replaces divine authority with an illegitimate
5. The Carnal Mind
I want to clarify that it is not bad to have an intelligent, brilliant mind, as long as that
mind is submissive to the leading of the Holy Spirit. The apostle Paul was a brilliant
man, yet he learned to trust the illumination of the Holy Spirit rather than the carnal
What Happened at the Beginning of Creation?
The fall of man occurred when Adam substituted the revelation of god for the carnal mind, or mental knowledge and ________ _______ (27). He disobeyed the command of God:
But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat. (Genesis 2:17)
After Adam sinned, time, space, and matter became the foundation of his reality. Sin took from him the ability to see in the spiritual realm.. Today, the carnal mind still determines our reality until we are born again. When we receive Jesus, we begin the process of renewing our minds with God’s thoughts. Our reality is determined by the level of revelation we have from Him.
God gave us faith to enable us to exit the natural realm in which we had fallen.
What Can Take Us Beyond the Natural Dimension?
• Revelation, or __________ (28) knowledge
So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God. (Romans 8:8)
• We need to raise a generation of believers who are not afraid or skeptical of the
By nature, the carnal mind is anti-God.
Common sense and human reasoning can never produce a miracle.
2. Faith: The First Dimension of the Supernatural
What is Faith?
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1)
The word “faith” is the Hebrew word emunah, meaning “firmness, steadfastness, __________ (29).” As you can see, each of these meanings describes an aspect of God’s nature. And they have nothing to do with presumption, hope, or optimism. The factor that assures us that the Lord will act is that God cannot lie or fail to keep His word. If He said it, you can rest assured that it will be as He said.
• Faith is the mind of the Holy Spirit revealed to man that he might operate and have
dominion is this dimension of time, space, and matter.
Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things]we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]. (Hebrews 11:1)
The Natural Realm
Mankind attempts to define God according to the _________ (30) realm in which he lives by God is much more than time, space, and matter. The breakthrough will come when we begin to operate by faith.
Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs]. (Romans 12:2 AMP)
What Is the Difference Between the Natural and Supernatural Realms?
The natural dimension is like a straight line that has a beginning and an end. Eternity is a circle; it has neither a beginning nor an end. When you enter eternity, everything is. This is God’s habitat, where time does not exist.
For thus says the High and Lofty One who inhabits eternity. (Isaiah 57:15)
Everything to which you conform will become your reality.
Faith allows us to cross the limits f time and reach __________ (31). In the spiritual realm, everything is finished and complete. Everything was provided for by Jesus at the cross. How can we manifest these things on earth? The only way to do it is by faith.
What Does the Natural Realm Represent?
• Faith is now.
When is faith due? Faith is now. Faith is the past and the future together in the present,
constituting the now.
And God said to Moses, “I am who I am.” (Exodus 3:14)
God does not need time. He dwells in the _____ (32). He does not need the day or the night to do His works because the supernatural realm – the pas and the future – come together in the present. From God’s standpoint, His future can invade the present. One reason we do not see supernatural manifestations – miracles, signs, and wonders – in the church is because these things take place in the now, while we live our lives waiting for things to happen in the future. Faith compresses time. Therefore, what would normally take a yea can now be done in one day. Everything works according to our faith. You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you; so light will shine o your ways. (Job 22:28)
The Definition of Faith Is in the Now
If we take this definition of faith, we will begin to see things as God sees them.
I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done. (Isaiah 46:9-10)
When faith touches things that cannot be seen, it gives us ____________ (33) and persuades us to wait for them. Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. (Philippians 1:6)
God started creating us in eternity and finished us before giving us the shape and form we have today. We arrived in the now via God’s faith. Therefore we don’t have to seek faith, because God already gave it to us to receive all that He __________ (34). We will believe what we can’t
see only if we see it through the faith of the One who sees. God sees our healing, prosperity, and happiness because He already did it all.
• Faith feeds on impossibilities
• Faith perceives as real that which has yet to be revealed to the natural senses.
The nature of faith is not to be revealed to the ________ (35). When God commands that we do something, it might not make sense.
• God gave each person a measure of faith.
God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. (Romans 12:3)
What is a measure of faith? What does Scripture say about this? A measure of faith is the
sphere of ___________ (36) and the level of authority where we place our faith to produce.
It is my firm belief that one human being is capable of influencing – for good or evil – an average of around ten thousand people in his or her lifetime. How Do We Receive God’s Faith? So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God.” (Mark 11:22)
A more literal translation for this verse is, “Have God’s faith.” In Greek, the verb is in the
passive voice, which means that the action comes from outside. In other words, Jesus does not ask us to have faith in God, but God gives us a measure of faith that belongs to Him. In other words, our human nature is ___________ (37) of generating faith on its own. We must take hold of God’s faith. In essence, Jesus was telling Peter, “Receive God’s faith to bless others.” Later, in Acts, we see Peter saying the same thing. Because everyone has been given a measure of faith, there will never be an excuse to not believe in God. Human nature can doubt but not believe; divine nature can believe but not doubt.
Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” (Acts 3:6)
Let’s study this in more detail:
• God gave Abraham “dynamite” faith. [Abraham] did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened [endynamoo] in faith, giving glory to God. (Romans 4:20) Abraham’s faith needed strengthening. Endynamoo – or God’s “dynamite” – had to come upon him. As a human being, Abraham did not have the faith he needed. Therefore, God had to fill him with His faith to help him wait for the son God promised. When God finished strengthening Abraham, he was ___________ (38) and convicted to wait for the certainty of this now.
[Abraham was] fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.
(Romans 4:21) • God used “dynamite” in Sarah’s womb. By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised. (Hebrews 11:11)
How Do We Receive God’s Faith?
God’s faith to believe as He believes is received by saying, “Lord, I open my heart so You can fill it with Your dynamite faith. Destroy in me all doubt, unbelief, reasoning, and argumentation so I may receive the miracles You promised me, and so that I may give to others the faith You have imparted into my life.” What Are the Enemies of Faith?
The power of God in the realm of miracles is called faith. When we have God’s faith, His Word in our mouth is the same as it is in His mouth.
__________ (39) Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil hear of unbelief in departing from the living God. (Hebrews 3:12) Truth is the highest level of reality, and it may be understood only by ____________ (40) – Jesus is truth. When God speaks, what He says is truth, and it will come to pass, regardless of circumstances or what theologians, doctors, or the devil may say.
• Human reason
By faith we understand that the worlds were framed. (Hebrews 11:3)
“By faith we understand.” Note that _______ (41) comes first and then _______________ (42). To believe God with human reasoning doesn’t make sense, and it will never increase our level of faith. The enemy’s goal is to keep us within the limits of reason, as he did to Adam in the Garden of Eden. This is why, each time we seek to understand God through reason, we once again eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. How to Cross Over from Reason to Faith To live by faith, we must __________ (43) our reasoning ability and “loose” our minds. If we believe our minds, we will believe only in man-made reason and will doubt God’s power. Faith The only biblical reason to fail is unbelief. Truth is the highest level of reality. Faith is the ability given to every believer to believe the unreasonable. In the absence of reason, all things are possible. When faith is present, even the impossible is made possible.
doesn’t need human reasoning to believe because it supersedes reasoning and is not based on common sense. How Do We Rise from One Dimension of Faith to a Greater One? For in [the gospel] the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.” (Romans 1:17) To go “from faith to faith” is to go from one dimension of degree of faith to another. This indicates that the movement does not begin at the point of departure, but it takes off from a place already advanced.
If revealed knowledge ceases, faith also ceases. It will decelerate and enter into the natural realm. We cannot believe in something we do not know. This means that we cannot allow faith to become __________ (44). Faith must be in constant movement.
You know and are established in the present truth. (2 Peter 1:12) Truth is present, and faith is now. If yesterday’s faith were sufficient, the Bible would not command that we go “from faith to faith.” God wants to do something new and fresh now!
Faith has an expiration date. If it is not now, it is not faith. Furthermore, yesterday’s revelation is mirthless when we try to activate it now. What used to work no longer works therefore, God motivates us to take up a new dimension and revelation.
The level of revelation is an individual determines the measure of faith in which he
will operate. To have faith in the now, we must have revelation of the present truth.
The realm of the impossible is founded on human logic and established in human
The Anointing: The Second Dimension of the Supernatural
The previous chapter covered the first of the three dimensions that make up the supernatural. Now, let us learn about the anointing.
What Is the Anointing?
The anointing is the ability God gives the believer to accomplish the work of the ministry and to serve Him. The physical act of anointing is to apply oil on someone for the purpose of consecrating the work of God in his or her life. It is a confirmation of a calling of function, sealed by the Holy Spirit, in which the oil is only visible symbol. The person who anoints another is God’s agent. This person applies the _____ (45), but God is the One who sends His Holy Spirit. Since the earliest of times, anointing has been the way to seal the consecration of God on people who are called to carry out special functions, for example, kings and priests.
Through the act of anointing, the person is enabled to carry out the assigned functions.
In the area of ministry, supernatural power is called holy anointing.
I have found My servant David; with My holy oil I have anointed him. (Psalm 89:20)
What Is the Difference Between Talent and Anointing?
Many people trust and depend solely on their talents. Thus, when they praise, worship, and serve God, they do not do so wholeheartedly. Doing these things has nothing to do with talent but with how anointed one is. I have seen people with little talent bring God’s presence like no one else when they praise. In Him you also…were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise. (Ephesians 1:13) When the measures and the gifts unite, God’s glory descends. Otherwise, His glory will not come. Let us now analyze two types of the anointing:
The anointing is God doing His work through our humanity.
The anointing of the Holy Spirit is a deposit to receive God’s glory.
• Personal anointing
But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift.
Personal anointing is the _________ (46) of supernatural grace that God gives each
believer to enable him or her to fulfill his or her calling.
• Corporate anointing
…till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a
perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. (Ephesians 4:13)
A corporate anointing is an anointing of the Holy Spirit that is poured out when all
personal measures are collected and when everyone becomes as one in Christ. God
always commands us to seek unity and depend on one another, according to our measure, in order to become powerful on earth, just as Jesus is.
What Is a Mantle?
The word ________ (47) has several meanings, including “a loose sleeveless garment worn over other clothes… a figurative cloak symbolizing preeminence or authority.” In all its meanings, the mantle represents a covering, or protection. In the spiritual realm, the word mantle also means “glory, kindness, lordship, excellence, nobility, authority, strength, essence, and great courage.”
The Two Mantles of Jesus
• The mantle of His deity, which is His glory
• The mantle of His humanity, which is His anointing
The Purpose of the Anointing
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free. (Luke 4:18 NLT, emphasis added)
The mantle, or anointing, is our covering while we reside on earth.
The key word in this verse is “for”.
It shall come to pass in that day that his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil. (Isaiah 10:27)
What Are the Consequences of Judging or Refusing a Mantle?
The Word teaches that we will receive a mantle the same way we receive a gift. If we do not respect it – if you criticize it, judge it, or reject it – we will not receive it.
He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward. (Matthew 10:41)
The moment someone speaks badly about the mantle or anointing of the man of God, he
schedules the funeral for his own mantle. The person who betrays a prophetic mantle will never again flow in the prophetic mantle.
What has Happened to the Fivefold Ministries?
When we reject the pastoral ministry, we fail to care for the sheep, and they are likely to lose their way. If we reject the teacher’s mantle, we ________ (48) for lack of knowledge. (See Hosea 4:6.) When we reject the evangelistic mantle, souls are not saved. When we reject the ministry of the prophet, the church lacks vision and direction concerning the things that God is doing and saying. If we reject the apostolic mantle, the church operates without direction, vision, edification, impartation, revelation advancement of the kingdom, and supernatural power to perform miracles.
Every time we reject on of the fivefold ministries, the church suffers because God’s power cannot fully manifest. The Main Enemy of the Anointing The main enemy of the anointing is _____________ (49), which may cause us to take lightly, or to disrespect, the mantle upon a man or woman of God. This goes hand in hand with the familiarity
people develop toward God’s servants and their anointing.
Some mantles have never been used because they were rejected. The mantle you
reject becomes the one that will judge you.
Placing a Demand on the Anointing, or Mantle
To place a ________ (50) on a God-given anointing, or mantle, is to express a deep desire or hunger for a supernatural manifestation of God’s power.
How Do Faith and the Anointing Work Together?
The anointing is never received b skeptics, only by people who exercise their faith. People absorb the fight in the mantle, and, in the end, the preacher does not need to minister to these people, as they have already received through the Word.
Faith can keep a man preaching even when he does not want to continue. This is not always understood, but it is caused by someone placing a demand and into letting go until something happens.
How Do We Receive the Benefits of a Mantle?
I have asked the Lord what needs to be done for my anointing to flow through my spiritual children. Then, I notice that some were already flowing in the fullness of my mantle, some only had a portion of it, and others barely had it. It was then that the Lord taught me four principles about receiving the benefits of the mantle or the anointing:
It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments. (Psalm 133:2)
1. Recognize the mantle.
To recognize the mantles is to realize that the leader is the person God has chosen as an
If a person cannot receive from my mantle, it means that he is not ready to receive
it. When a person does not place a demand on the anointing, he or she stops being a
recipient of the anointing. Individual faith can powerfully influence the anointing on a man of God.
authority over our life. This is the person who will take us to our _____________ (51) – the one whom we must submit to and obey. That man or woman is the vessel God will
use to pour the anointing into our life and loosen our purposes and destinies. He or she
will also lead us to flow in the same level of his or her anointing.
2. Receive the mantle.
We must welcome this person as the anointed one of God and understand that his or her
message is the living Word of God. It is also important to understand that anointed men
and women have weaknesses as well as strengths. Therefore, we cannot expect that
person to be perfect before welcoming him or her.
3. Honor the mantle.
Honor is demonstrated verbally and materially through ____________ (52) and
submission. In the Old Testament, no one could approach a man of God with empty
hands, not because the anointing could be purchased but because it was a matter of honor.
The Bible demonstrates the power of honor when God affirms that if we give a glass of
water to a prophet, we will have the prophet’s reward. (See Matthew 10:41-42)
4. Serve the mantle.
Serving the mantle implies working and sowing into the mantle without a personal
agenda. It means loving the man of God and the mantles that God has deposited upon
him. The Lord once said to me, “When your disciples and spiritual children obey these
principles, they will flow under your same anointing.”
You cannot receive the strengths of the anointed if you do not accept their
weaknesses. Honor gives us access to the reward system of a man or woman of God.
You are able only to carry the mantle of the one you serve.
Principles, Concepts, and Revelations for Operating in the Supernatural
1. It is crucial to maintain a personal prayer life that perseveres continually.
Now it came to pass, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, that one of
His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray.” (Luke 11:1)
Jesus was praying with His disciples, but only one, _______ (53), asked Him to teach them to pray. Perhaps Peter asked this because he understood that all of the healings and other miraculous works of Jesus were made possible b His prayer life. Indeed, Jesus’ continuous and persistent prayer life was the main force behind all the miracles, signs, and wonders He performed. Furthermore, prayer directly connected Jesus to the power and authority to deliver the oppressed by casting out their demons. Jesus’ prayer life, and His intimate relationship with the Father, produced a supernatural atmosphere to loosen miracles and cast out demons everywhere he went.
2. Corporate prayer and intercession are just as important as personal prayer.
Another necessity of operating in the supernatural is the atmosphere produced by
corporate prayer and worship, as well as the intercession of a church or community that
loosens God’s presence to perform miracles and healing.
3. It is necessary to have revelation, or revealed knowledge, and God’s wisdom.
That the God or our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of
wisdom and revelation in knowledge of Him. (Ephesians 1:17)
In the Spirit realm, we must learn to flow with the channels of spiritual access because
natural channels are inoperable there. To what was Paul referring when he spoke of “the
spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him”? He was referring to the fact
that the spirits of wisdom and revelation teach us how to flow in the supernatural. Many
Hours spent with God turn into minutes spent with men.
miracles remain unused in the eternity because they cannot manifest until their “how” is
know. To enter into the supernatural, it takes more than confessing and declaring, more
than believing or personal effort. There is no access without revelation.
4. Thanksgiving, praise, and worship to God are vital.
But You are holy, enthroned in the praises of Israel. (Psalm 22:3)
In thanksgiving, we recognize His goodness; in praise, we recognize His ___________
(54) and amazing works; and, in worship, we recognize His majesty, sovereignty, and
What is Thanksgiving?
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name (Psalm 100:4)
What is Praise?
Praise is the proclamation and declaration of God’s powerful deeds, which are articulated with jubilee, excitement, loud sounds, music, applause, shouts, and dance. To praise is to exalt God in a brilliant, extravagant celebration with powerful sounds that border on the ridiculous. It also makes us look like people who have lost their heads ad their good sense. Biblically speaking, praise is a _____________ (55) that breaks all barriers, making it able to ___________ (56) as a hostile environment.
What is Worship?
In the Old Testament, worship is the Hebrew word shachah, which means “to bow down, prostrate oneself… before superior in homage… before God.” It is an act of reverence and humiliation. In the New Testament, it is the Greek word proskyneo, which comes from the words pros, meaning “to the advantage of,” and kyon, meaning “to kiss, like a dog licking his Without revelation, there is no access to the supernatural. If we don’t have access, it is because we don’t have faith to possess it.
If we want to experience deep worship, we need vibrant praise. It is the only way to
see God’s glory manifest.
master’s feet.” With this in mind, worship, or proskyneo, is bowing down in the respect and reverence and kissing the hands and feet of a superior. It is the ultimate expression of submission and reverence for the purpose of humbly begging someone to do something. It is comparable to a dog licking its master’s hand as a demonstration of its affection. Then she came and worshipped Him, saying, “Lord, help me!” (Matthew 15:25) Worship, then is a humble, respectful attitude and ___________ (57) to God demonstrated by physical acts expressed through unselfish and sacrificial service.
Both the Old and New testaments describe the posture of the body when praising and
worshipping. It has nothing to do with what we say but with the attitude in which we say it.
Praise and worship go beyond physical posture. They are an attitude of the spirit, body, and soul. Once we have thanked, raised, and worshipped God, His glory will descend. His presence is the sign of His habitation, and that the throne upon which He sits has been edified. Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him. (Genesis 17:3)
How Much Time Should We Devote to Worship? What keeps God’s presence from manifesting? It is our lack of sufficient worship. It is because we fail to build His throne with our meaningless singing and our incorrect attitudes. On the other hand, when we build God’s throne with our worship, Satan cannot remain near us.
Let us look at a series of concepts concerning praise and worship and how to connect with the flow of the supernatural.
• Praise and worship cause God to __________ (58). And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!” And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke. (Isaiah 3:3-4) Praise recognizes God’s powerful works, while worship acknowledges the person of God.
Praise until the spirit of worship descends; worship until His glory manifests.
• Worship in spirit and in truth takes place when we are no longer aware of ourselves
but only God.
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth. (John 4:24)
Worship is a _________ (59). It has nothing to do with how we feel. Genuine worship is complete when we forget ourselves and focus only on God. We are not worshipping God when we are thinking about ourselves and our circumstances. If we are continually
worried about what other people think of us, we are not worshipping. If we continue to
occupy our minds with the concerns of our day, we are not worshipping.
• The level of praise and worship determines the type of miracles that will take place
in a service.
If the praise and worship you offer are not enough, someone with a headache may receive healing, but not someone with terminal cancer. Although there are services in which the level of praise and worship is greater than other, we must always strive to raise our level if we want to see His glory.
• The main reason we worship is to seek __________ (60) for the purpose of roducing life. Our worship will always be ________ (61) to the revelation we have of God. We cannot praise someone we don’t know. We can worship only what we know. The more intimate our knowledge of God, the more details we will have to acknowledge Him and His worth. For this reason, some believers are incapable of praising and worshipping God for long periods of time. The run out of words and stamina because they don’ know
whom they are worshipping.
• Praise and worship release the atmosphere of glory and God’s presence.
If we are worshippers in spirit and in truth, we will edify His throne and build a dwelling
place that God can inhabit among our new songs. This type of worship will heal the sick,
