See & Experience the Supernatural!
Lots of people say they believe in miracles. Then there are the folks who say they have witnessed a miracle. Yet, many others remain skeptical, and some completely disbelieve not only miracles, but also the existence of the spiritual realm. For millions of people the belief in miracles seems like a foreign concept—like some non-existent crutch, a fairy tale told simply to brighten an otherwise dismal life. We dare not hope in yet another thing that will let us down, disappoint us and shatter our dreams.
But what if miracles are real? What if your whole life could change into one of tremendous jubilation, enabling you with powerful thoughts and actions? Life marches on, regardless of our beliefs, and time keeps ticking towards that moment every human life must face: death—it has such a final ring to it. But what if it doesn’t have to be that way? Would it change the way you live? If eternity does exist, yet you are living as if it does not, imagine the incredible change that would take place in who you are, and how you think, and what you do, if you found out for certain that it is real. And then you are empowered by something—by someone who is omnipotent!
Guess what? Would you like to discover beyond any doubt whatsoever, with sound, reasonable proof, and be absolutely certain that not only eternity is a reality, but that you are a spiritual being created to live forever? You can! And I am absolutely sure of this. It has been proven to me over and over again. My life has changed from marching toward the nothingness of death and nonexistence, to incredible joy and peace.
Yet, the grand purpose for my life is probably the best of it. I have a fantastic reason for living, and it’s beyond anything this earth can comprehend. And the good news is, you do too! If, that is, you are willing to honestly and without bias, investigate it. I can show you how. And, you won’t have to disregard the standard laws of scientific inquiry to do so! In fact you can combine such methods with spiritual methods to arrive at a complete revelation of the existence of God, and miracles, and eternity.
Yes, I’m beating around the bush a bit, but that’s only in hopes of helping people understand that there is living proof that God is real. And yes, I am speaking of the God of the bible. Not just any bible, as there are false words today. I mean the one and only true words of God. The reason we have false words is because not only does God exist, but Satan does too. He is the enemy to all that is good, and he’s also an enemy to you. He wants to keep you from discovering the best thing that could ever happen to you.
People who do not believe in God or the supernatural, can do so all they want. Truth cannot be changed based upon belief. Yet, truly, it is the truth which sets us free! Any rational and intelligent person will realize the importance of honestly investigating the possibility. The question every man and woman must ask themselves is this: “Am I willing to honestly investigate and find out once and for all, by doing a little research and studying the bible, while at the same time asking God to reveal Himself to me?”
Be assured, the moment you decide to do this, the enemy will try to thwart your efforts at every turn. Bad things may happen in your life. Satan will do everything he can to confuse you, get you to doubt, and keep you from the evidence. Yet without your cooperation, he can do nothing. As long as you keep forging ahead in seeking the truth, while asking God to show you the truth, it will be manifested unto you.
Consider for a moment the means by which all people perceive things. The earth and skies and all they contain are seen, tasted, heard, felt, smelled and understood to be tangible and real. Our five senses reveal the reality of the material world. Likewise, as the physical is perceived through our bodily senses, so too, that which is spiritual is perceived by inward senses just as real as the physical.
Yet, because of being so long unused those spiritual senses are deadened and sometimes completely inert. The soul of man has senses which are able to fully realize the spiritual, just as effectively and real as the physical senses are able to detect what is of the material world.
However, there are prerequisites to rejuvenating these senses, which have been hampered by an ailment common to all mankind. That is, the disease of sin, which affects every living person on earth with no exemptions except for Christ Jesus Himself. Sin has put the kibosh on these spiritual senses. The good news is that God has made a way for us to completely take that which hinders our ability to perceive Him, i.e. the sin problem, out of the equation.
Unlocking the sensitivity of the soul to be able to touch and feel and to truly experience God in His infinite glory takes an active decision. And it requires action. But for now we are only concerned with the very first step: Making the decision to investigate the existence of the spiritual realm, referred to, as the supernatural, and asking God to help.
The bible tells us, “He that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6) Allow that to sink in for a moment.
Upon belief—even a smidgen of belief—enough belief to ask God for revelation of truth, God rewards mankind with satisfactory evidence of Himself. At least, enough proof for us to take the next step of faith, and investigate further.
The revelation of spiritual truth usually does not come all at once, but incrementally. Until one day, the full realization of that which is spiritual is understood in blazing brilliance and shown to us to be just as real as the physical world around us.
Faith does not create anything. Faith is the comprehension of what is real in the spiritual realm. Interestingly, once the spiritual is apprehended, everything in the physical is also understood more lucidly than ever before! The purpose of those temporary, physical things is disclosed. Natural laws of physics and scientific inquiry all point to the glorious purposes of God.
Spiritual perception comes into focus by spiritual reception, as it moves towards perfect understanding through faith, and practice. Extraordinarily, God’s work of manifesting Himself to mankind is driven by His love. To explain spiritual perception another way: In order for one to see God with the eyes of the soul, and touch Him through spirit, one must be open to receive revelation, while seeking God. And it’s going to blow your mind when you are suddenly touched by, and filled with, His love!
The greater faith becomes, the more clearly one will comprehend and find God. He will manifest Himself to such ones who look for Him with an intense, burning desire to know Him. If that desire for God is not intense, one need only take the first step of inquiry by asking God to help you with enough faith to move forward to the next step of faith. (To be continued ...)
