Creative Miracles #3

When creative miracles happen they demonstrate a powerful manifestation of God’s care and intervention in the lives of those that suffer from disease and afflictions.

 

How would you like to reach out to the diseased and afflicted?  Would it not be awesome to be able to reach people right there at their needs and no matter the need be able to help.

 

Not look at their sickness and say wow that is a little above my head,

No look at their sickness and proclaim boldly with expectation that Jesus heals!

 

Remember because of the design and intent of our creator we were “born to create”

 

We can release creative miracles, and affect nature and even speak forth resurrection life!

 

God wants to empower us to release and be the initiator in creative miracles!

 

I want to start discussing creative miracles in a prophetic as well as historical aspect.

 

So let’s begin by discussing the two witnesses of the book of revelation!

 

I call them the Moses and Elijah Anointings

 

Listen a powerful authority for creative miracles is coming to the church and it is coming to Living Word as well.

 

It will come in two anointings that will revolutionize the church.

 

The book of revelation describes these two witnesses that represent two anointings.

 

Rev 11:6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

 

Now who are these two witnesses?  They are strikingly similar to Moses and Elijah in their abilities.

 

Who turned water into blood?  And plagues in Egypt?

 

Who commanded the rain to stop for 3 ½ years?

 

Now here is where we need to pay attention, I have always been taught that the two witnesses literally are Moses and

Elijah!

 

 

But I have a new outlook on that through my studies and seem to be leaning more and more on this new way of looking at it.

 

I do not believe that Rev11 is just about talking about a mere two witnesses Moses and Elijah.

 

I think Rev 11 can be used to cause the church to rise up  and start moving in two distinct anointings that will be prominent in the church!

 

Some will walk in the Moses anointing and some will walk in the Elijah anointing.

 

Listen to me.  Would you agree with me that revelation was written as a book of signs and symbols.

 

Now we know that God often speaks thru numbers signs and symbols so we must be careful to not interpret literally too often in the book of rev.

 

Look at some more about the two witnesses that give us reason to suspect that they are actually the church.

 

Rev 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

Rev 11:4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

 

 

Candlesticks or lamp stands where is that used to represent something in rev?

 

The church is represented by lamp stands and candlesticks right?

 

How many churches are written about in Revelation?  7

 

They were more than 7 churches in Asia at the time of its writing.

 

Does that mean that there was only 7 saved churches?

 

I think it safe to say that the letter was actually written to 7 different types of churches.  Makes more sense right?

 

How many of you never really considered about how the 7 churches actually fit in our theology?

 

I believe it is clear that the 7 churches represent the church today and if the two witnesses are compared to the same lampstands is it safe to say that anointing that the two witnesses walk in could actually be available to the church….you and me….

 

God is going to release such an anointing upon you and me for healings signs and wonders and he will entrust us with such power that we will release them as often as we desire.

 

According to scripture God is going to give power to these witnesses and signs and wonders will take place and it will not be at God’s command but at theirs.

 

Now what I am saying is nothing new lets look at Mark.

 

Mar 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Mar 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Mar 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

Mar 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Mar 16:19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

Mar 16:20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

 

And also

 

Mar 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Mar 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

 

I am not talking about anything new here am I?  Not if you believe in the Word of God and what it says

 

Tell me something how come we believe in the easy part the salvation I am out of hell part but when it talks about mountains tossed in the sea we cringe.

 

Now listen very clearly there is power in the tongue and we are going to exercise that power tonight.  Yeah you are going to profess and confess and believe that mountains gonna move!

 

Creative multiplication:

Now lets look at an amazing passage of scripture that is often spoken about but never really looked upon with awe and wonder.

 

John 6:1 (main)

 

What was Jesus really asking?

Have you had a revelation of what my power really is?

 

You have been with me but have you really seen what I have done?  Blind eyes see and deaf ears are opened….

 

Do you have the revelation yet?  He did not, because he spoke of money and lack of provision…….

 

Jesus wanted to know if Philip believed, I mean really believed!  He didn’t do you?

Jesus was saying have you seen my Elohim powers?

 

Do you have the revelation of who I am, the creator of all things and that they are subject to me and my will!?!?!?!

 

Phillips answer was money and lack of provision for the situation.

 

And then another disciple Simon Peters brother comes in and feeds the unbelief.

 

Joh 6:8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him,

Joh 6:9 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?

 

They didn’t get it did they?   God’s Grace huh?

 

Jesus then giving thanks performed a creative miracle and fed the 5000 with enough left overs to fill 12 baskets!

 

By the way he did not even need the boys lunch if he so desired!

 

We cannot make sense of creative miracles as they do not make sense to the mind,

 

Jesus said take this and give it to the people and the disciples were probably saying give what I half a fish here but to their credit they obeyed and all 5000 and more were filled!

 

They could not see the miracle without acting on the miracle!

 

God wants you and me to believe in the miracle even though we may not see it yet!

 

He wants you to believe that you have the creative power in you too even if you cannot see it yet.  But you have to act on it!!

 

The disciples did their part by obedience and believing and God did his part by creating.

 

Lastly

 

Remember the widow and jar of oil and God tells her he is going to create a creative miracle a never ending flour and oil jar!

 

For three years God supernaturally created and provided…

 

In the natural she surely did not understand the prophets instructions to make him the last of her food.

 

It must of seemed foolish and she probably was like us muttering under her breath I guess God and this prophet want me to die sooner than later!

 

You are telling that I am to give you the last of everything and if I do this then more will appear for my son and me to eat?

 

Yeah right?  Like me going to a complete stranger saying I am a pastor and to give me all of their money and I will replace it with interest if they have the faith to do so!

 

Sounds like a con job to me how about you?

 

God wanted to include her faith in the creative miracle!

 

God wants to include you and your faith in the creative miracles he wants to perform in our lives.

 

The first step is believing that God will use you and not just somebody else!

 

The widow miracles did not happen until she became involved and exercised her faith!

 

Just like her you only need the Word of the Lord spoken and your faith released by action!  And you will see your miracle!

 

Get this deep in your heart!  We have discussed the Word and its examples of creative miracles

 

God wants to know what do you have in your house?

 

So you can launch out in miracles and signs and wonders!

The HG is inside of you and is waiting for you to speak the word and release the creative power within you!

 

How can creative miracles not happen?

 

Next week we are going to go over some keys for unlocking the creative power within us but for now I want us to find a partner!
