God is Showing Us Signs and Wonders!
We are in a time where God is revealing Himself in powerful ways to confirm the things He has promised us and to direct us with a supernatural precision. In just listening to some of the testimonies of the prophetic voices lately, you'll see that the signs and wonders they share show that we have a supernatural God. These testimonies are only increasing.
Every day "regular" Christians are experiencing incredible things in this hour that tell me there is increase coming on many levels. I have felt it for awhile now that the Lord is getting ready to launch people into their callings and destinies. It's going to be powerful and it's going to be supernatural.
"I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke." (Acts 2:19 NIV)
Our Walk With Him
This week, the Lord spoke to my wife Gordana and me, and gave us a word for those who are in a season of waiting for that launching to take place. Last Sunday as we were driving to church, Gordana said, "What Scripture would you like me to read?" I replied, "Whatever the Lord shows you." As she turned through the New Testament, she got to the book of James, chapters 2- 4. When she opened to those chapters, her Bible was suddenly covered with brilliant blue sparkles. We couldn't help but believe that the Lord wanted us to read those Scriptures. As she read those chapters, I felt the Lord was telling us the importance of our walk with Him.
"And the Scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God." (James 2:23 KJV)
We should believe God in the promises He has given us, just as Abraham believed. Our walk should be Christ-like, showing mercy and love and living with godly humility as we seek to do His will on the earth.
"But He giveth more grace. Wherefore He saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble." (James 4:6 KJV)
Walking in Power
I felt that God was saying through these Scriptures that He is fine-tuning His people to walk in power but there are adjustments to be made in us so we can carry that power. Although the Lord told us many things from those chapters, the overwhelming message was that we are in final preparation where God is bringing a greater level of sanctification so that we might be launched into the plan the Lord has for us.
About twenty minutes after Gordana read those Scriptures, we just worshipped God for making it so clear. By His willingness to use signs and wonders to really get our attention, we again experienced something totally off the charts. As we drove along on an almost deserted street on our way to church, Gordana shouted to me, "Look at that plane!" When I turned to look, quite frankly, I was stunned at what I saw.
I have seen many strange things these past few years but this really challenged me. There, hanging in mid-air motionless, was a passenger jet probably no more than 300-500 yards away from us. My first reaction was to try to reason and come up with a natural explanation. I could not find one. A jet, in a banked turn, was hanging in the air like a picture hung on a wall and we were both seeing this as clear as day. The jet remained motionless for about 15-20 seconds as we sat there in the middle of the street looking. Then it just took off. I pondered this for several hours and the Lord then showed me that the earlier sign in the Bible and this sign in the heavens were related.
Many people have said that they feel like they are in a holding pattern. They know God wants to use them and He has given them confirmations again and again, but they are not yet moving. The Lord said that the blue sparkles spoke of the things of Heaven and being heavenly-minded—seeing and doing from Heaven's perspective and being prepared in that. The jet being motionless speaks of the fact that we really have been launched, yet the lack of movement in or into our calling looks and feels unnatural and abnormal. We feel like we should be moving.
The fact that the jet was only motionless for a very short time told me that this season of waiting will be very short and then we will be released to go, even as we have desired to go...and some are going eve now! This day of signs and wonders not only spoke to us but was the Lord's confirmation for those who are in that season that feel like a "holding pattern." This word is for you.
Believe God, stay in faith and get ready to be launched! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
