Operating in the supernatural David oyedepo Pdf Download
Understanding Your Root In TheSupernaturalIn this chapter, we are going to be considering the questions: Who am Where am I from? What am I worth? These are very vital questions that must first be answered, for you to operate in the supernatural. I believe if you truly understand who you are, where you are from, and your worth inChrist, then you will cheaply command the supernatural.The supernatural validates Christianity; nothing defines Christianity
as the supernatural. The future of every believer, therefore, defined by his understanding of his root. He must know who he is, where he’s from, and what he’s worth, otherwise he may never have a worth on earth.They came to John and asked him, “Who art thou? Are you Elias or one of the prophets?” He said, “No”, because he knew who he was. “I am the voice of the one crying in the wilderness”, he said. He knew what he carried. Many don’t know who they are, what they are worth, or what they carry; that’s why it’s so easy for them to fail.I want to show you your root in Christ; and if you can see it, it will change your perspective, giving you your place in destiny.You Are A Spirit Being Jesus, answering Nicodemus’ question on how to be born again, said inJohn 3:6:That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.At new birth, you are not born again a spiritual being; you are born again a spirit being. New birth makes you a spirit being in human flesh.Adam was a supernatural personality in the garden. He operated in the class of God. Adam single-handedly named all the animals in the garden, all the fowls in the air, and all the fishes in the waters. God brought everything He created before Adam to name, and whatever name Adam called them, that was the name by which they were called. He was in the class of God, so he thought like Him. Adam was a supernatural being.What made him supernatural was the spirit that was alive in him. But at the fall, his spirit-man died, and Adam was reduced to a natural being. However, when Jesus came, what died in Adam was restored back to man through salvation. So, every redeemed child of God carries in his body today whatever virtues Adam carried in the garden before the fall. That
which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit, not spiritual. Jesus again tells us in John 4:24 that God is a Spirit.God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.That means new birth enables you to share divinity with God. That which is born of the Spirit is spirit, and God is a Spirit! Adam was in the class of God when his spirit-man was yet alive. He shared divinity with God. God always came down in the cool of the day to have fellowship with him; they were in council together.You need to understand that new birth is not merely an adjustment of lifestyle. New birth is a miracle of recreation. New birth is a regeneration restoration of your human dignity under God. It is restoring dominion back to mankind. If you understand this, you will throw sickness, disease, and frustrations away. You will shake them all off you, casting them into the fire.“That which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”Who are you? If you are born again, then you are a spirit being inhabiting a human body. What then does this imply? The Holy Ghost speaking through Isaiah prophesied thus: Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.- Isaiah 7:14-15In a world of dead men and women, when you are born again, you become a sign among men. Redemption makes you a spirit being, which makes you
a living sign among men. Who am I? You are a spirit operating in human flesh. But if you don’t know this and walk in its reality, or when you disregard the supernatural, you become vulnerable to every wicked act of the devil. Jesus knew who He was so much so that He became the greatest headache of the enemy. He said to the Pharisees:…Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.- John 8:23Hear what the word says, “The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whitherit goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit” (Jn. 3:8). When you are born of the Spirit you become a sign among men. They can’t tell where you are coming from, but they can’t deny your effect. That’s going to be your experience from now.You Have The Mind Of Christ By this new spirit quickened in you at salvation, according to the word ofGod, you also now have the mind of Christ.For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.- 1 Corinthians 2:16What does this mean? The Bible says: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.- John 1:1-3That same word is called Christ; and the Bible says you have His mind. That means you have the creative mind of Christ by reason of redemption. When the earth was without form and void, the mind of Christ came on the scene, and now we talk about the earth being the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and all that dwell therein (Ps. 24:1).That means, therefore, that by the creative wisdom of God at work in you, your life can no longer be void. By the creative wisdom of God working in you by reason of redemption, darkness can no longer cover your life. Your life can never become empty again by reason of the creative wisdom of God deposited in you at salvation. That wisdom created the earth and the fullness thereof. Therefore, you cannot be stranded any more in life, as you will always know what to do in any given situation. Since you carry the mind of Christ, that is the Creator’s mind, you will always know what to do to provoke a miracle; you will always know what steps to take to moveGod to act on your behalf.I’ll like you to understand that I’m not talking about intellectualism; I’m talking about spiritual intelligence, about supernatural insight. With the mind of Christ at work in you, you will be operating at God’s frequency in approaching every given situation in your life, thereby commanding the supernatural at will.because of new birth, you are a spirit being dwelling in a human body.Also by virtue of new birth, you have the creative mind of Christ. There was a spiritual transplant of your mind. Christ’s mind replaced your at salvation. And when the earth was without form and void, the wisdom ofGod created all that God desired. The same way, the wisdom of God in you should go to work to create whatever is missing in your life. See how this brother in testimony below put the creative mind of Christ in him to work, to avert shame and failure.“I want to thank God for what He did in my life after last
Sunday’s impartation service. During the impartation I told God that I wanted the kind of success the Bishop has recorded.I was called for a meeting at one of our offices at Ikoyi on Tuesday. The following day, I was told, ‘We want you to go to Kaduna right away, because we have a problem at the refinery there, and you just have to solve it.’ We had installed thesystem at the Kaduna refinery, but it suddenly stopped working. We’d sent people abroad on training on thisequipment, but they just couldn’t solve the problem. I wonderedwhy I should be called to do the job. I told them I couldn’t gothat Wednesday, that I would go on Thursday. The truth wasthat I was actually shaking.When I got to the refinery on Thursday, I was taken to meet theManager, who said, ‘We were told that you are an expert onthis job, that they’ve sent you on several courses on this job.So, it’s either you solve this problem or we write off yourcompany.’ I said, ‘God can do it. Let’s go to the location.’ Hesaid I would first have to tour the other bosses offices. I wastaken to the offices of the Special Depot Manager, the AreaManager; in short, we went everywhere. Everywhere we went,he said, ‘This is the man. If he can’t do it, then we will write offtheir company.’After two hours we went to the site. The boss there said, ‘If youwant to pray, pray, because if you can’t solve this problemthere is no way out.’ Another man there said, ‘This is Kadunarefinery, and we don’t take mistakes.’ He asked for my name,and commented that I was from the south. But I told myself,‘I’m from above.’ We were about seven on the platform, andthey said, ‘Let us see how you are going to do it.’At that instance, I remembered that I had touched the garment of the man of God during the impartation. I said to myself, ‘I cannot pray now because these people are here. But when Christ wanted to feed the 5,000, He only gave thanks, because He had prayed earlier, and I have prayed before coming.
Also when He wanted to raise Lazarus from the dead, He merely said, “Lazarus, come forth!” He didn’t pray, because He had prayed earlier.’ So, I just laid my hands on the equipment and said, ‘God, You will do it.’ There were two problems: one had been for one year, and the other for six months. I said to the people, ‘Let us go to the six-months-old problem.’ I said to God, ‘You will solve this problem.’ I instructed that they turn on the equipment. I examined it, and the problem was still there. I told them to turn it off and open the panel. When they opened the panel, I saw wires, and I was like, ‘God, what do I do?’ And I heard theHoly Spirit say, ‘Check terminals 132 and 134.’I picked up the meter and tested the voltage. My eyes immediately went to the setting of one of the boards, and I saw that the voltage I was getting was different from what was set, and I said, ‘God, thank You’ for showing me what the problem was. I turned the knob and told them to turn on the equipment.Lo and behold, it worked! We went over to the second problem, where I checked exactly the same thing I did at the first one. I corrected the setting, and on turning the equipment on, lo and behold, it worked also! Both equipment are working now.”He became a celebrity overnight by the creative mind of Christ at work inhim!The Bible says in Psalm 104:24:O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.So, the creative wisdom of God generates manifold works, all kinds of work. No wonder they said of Jesus, “From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?” (Mk. 6:2). From henceforth, you will start generating mighty works in all facets of life.
The creative dimension of His wisdom is what establishes you in the realm of the supernatural. Jesus knew what He would do to feed five thousand people in the wilderness, and as a result, five loaves and two fishes was more than enough to feed the crowd, and they even gathered twelve baskets after all had eaten. To operate in the supernatural, you must understand that you share the creative ability of Christ; therefore, you can never be stranded anymore. You will always know what to do.You Carry Divine Presence Your root in the supernatural also guarantees you God’s presence always.Divine presence is one of the great virtues of redemption. Jesus said to His disciples:…All power is given unto me in heaven and in the earth.Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.- Matthew 28:18-20“Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” That means God is with you always! Your relationship with God has been re-established by virtue of new birth. Isaiah prophesied that a virgin shall conceive and bear a child and his name shall be called Emmanuel, that is God with us (Isa.7:14). God that had hitherto turned His face away from us has now turnedHis face back to us! His name shall be called Emmanuel! Divine presence is a principal factor in the school of the miraculous. Hear what the Bible says in Acts 10:38:How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the
