The Supernatural

Mat 12:39  But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:
Mat 12:40  For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Mat 12:41  The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.
Mat 12:42  The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here. 
Mat 12:43  When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
Mat 12:44  Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
Mat 12:45  Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

The final speaker at the Pastor's conference spoke of the need for the presence of God to be in our church services. He said we should not get into a rut where things are always the same way, but we should expect the Lord to move in new ways manifesting his power. What are people interested in now? Entertainment and movies are about the supernatural. The pastor said that we need the supernatural moving of God in our church services. Jesus is greater than the supernatural demons of the world. The Holy Spirit is to move in these last days like he did in the early church. If we want people to be drawn to our church we need the presence of the power of God working wonders with healings and deliverance.

This can only happen by fasting and prayer. There is a local church that is known worldwide because they represent themselves as a place of the supernatural. When other churches are struggling this church continues to grow and has grown so much as to stimulate the economy.  We want healings and deliverance by the Holy Ghost, but Jesus must fill the empty clean house. So it is important that the focus not only be on signs and wonders but also on the atoning sacrifice of JESUS CHRIST, repentance after hearing the preaching of the word. We must learn of him and be renewed in our minds. It is not enough to be touched if we do not continue in his word. Discipline is required to be a disciple and there is little of that in this sinful world.
