While 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
In this post I really want to take the time to discuss receiving the supernatural from God. There are basically 7 principles to receiving that we need to know. I am going to mainly focus on financial prosperity, but these principles relate to any promise we find in God’s Word.
The key to receiving the supernatural is first understanding how God operates. The bible tells us His ways are higher than our ways, and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts Isaiah 55:9. That’s not to say we could never understand God, but that we will always have another level of depth to the excellence of His knowledge. Anyway, below are the 7 basic principles.
1. God is spirit & He operates in the spirit realm.
John 4:24 tells us that God is Spirit. Life begins in the spirit as all things come from God. The spirit realm is the supernatural realm. It is real.
2. The Spirit realm is the parent force of the natural realm.
Things were created first in the spirit realm before they are manifested in the natural. It contains all the raw material for what is required in the natural realm.
Hebrews 11:3 tells us that the things we see were not made out of things that are visible. This establishes that the unseen realm possess all the substances before we see them in the natural realm. The world was made from something, we just can’t see it.
3. I must relate to God spiritually if I am to receive from Him.
My soul must be educated to flow with the Spirit if I am to relate to God. My mind, will, and emotions have been trained to see the here and now. I must train my imagination and intellect to see the supernatural and eternal. If I cannot rise to this level I will never be able to relate to God on a supernatural level. I will not be able to operate in the supernatural.
4. The moment I am born again my spirit comes alive.
My spirit is made from God. It draws its energy from God. It is loaded with the same substance that is in God. My spirit is eternal, it contains the wisdom of God, it has every answer to every problem, it has vision, deliverance, focus, and all the power I need to live supernatural.
5. God has already created everything that we need and has placed them in the supernatural realm.
Ephesians 1:3 tell us that God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places. The heavenly places is the spiritual realm, the spiritual blessing is the parent force for what we need.
My total provision was placed in the super natural realm from the foundation of the world. (Hebrews 4:3) God does not create things after we pray because He already knew what we need before we asked. He knew from the foundation of the world. That is when He provided the answer, not when the need came in our lives. He has already provided it. You just can’t see it in the natural yet.
6. Everything that I need for quality of life is set aside in the spirit realm and it is connected to a promise in the Word.
My quality of life is to be determined by the Word of God. In the Word He has promised healing (1 Peter 2:24), prosperity, (3 John 2), and abundant life (John 10:10) just to name a few.
Every promise in the Word of God concerning finances has two elements; a principle and a promise. When I obey the principle, I am entitled to the promise. The spiritual reality of the promise is considered mine at the point of obedience. It is already mine in the spirit realm.
7. I possess the promises in the Word by faith.
Faith is the currency of the supernatural. It is the medium of exchange between the seen and the unseen realms.
Faith for the promise is found in the promise. Therefore every time we hear the promise, the potential to produce the promise is present. (Romans 10:17)
Faith is stored in the heart as belief and released in the atmosphere by words. (Mark 11:23) The power to produce and receive in the supernatural lies in the heart. When faith is released it makes the transfer from the spirit realm, the realm of the unseen, to the natural realm where you can see it.
