Sermon 19A: YOU ARE SUPERNATURAL

By Douglas E. Amobi

When you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you become a new creation. You in obedience affirm this through repentance, baptism, and then you ask the Lord for the gift of the Holy Spirit. This process starts your supernatural life. St. John 3:15 states that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. As a believer we come from the supernatural and line of people with confidence in God. Everything around them and about them is PECULIAR, UNUSUAL AND STRANGE.

God is peculiar, unusual and strange; so are his acts. His acts are found in his people, the believers. Every true believer is peculiar, unusual and strange. This is a working of the Holy Spirit. God is unusual; imagine Genesis 1:2-3, and the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters; and God said let there be light and there was light. In Genesis 2:7 and the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. These are supernatural acts of God. You can see how supernatural we are but our real supernatural manifestation is coming in the TRANSLATION. God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and he took a rib out of Adam to make EVE the mother of all living things. All these are unusual, peculiar and strange acts of God. God is supernatural, God is a Spirit.

To be supernatural, it takes the Holy Spirit of God. God spoke things into existence by the supernatural, the Holy Spirit. Men and women of God manifest the supernatural because of the presence of the Holy Spirit in them or on them as in the Old Testament. In Genesis 2:19-20 and Adam named all living creatures that God brought to him; this can only be done through the supernatural, wisdom and knowledge of the Holy Spirit. Most creatures are still called by the name Adam called them in the Garden of Eden.

Whatever Abel and Enoch did to be greatly remembered of God is of the supernatural. In Genesis 4:4 Abel knew what to offer to God by the supernatural. He offered to God a lamb that had BLOOD for the forgiveness of sin. Nobody knew what to do about sin, but Abel had the supernatural revelation of what is acceptable unto the Lord for all ages; it was a shadow of the BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST. The offering of Abel pleased God. Cain was not supernatural as shown by his offering and the outcome of all his deeds. The Spirit of God gives revelations for and to the supernatural people of God.

Genesis 49:1-2



Enoch pleased God by the supernatural that we do not know much about. He so pleased God, that God took him that he should not taste death, and took him back to heaven. He is still alive and waiting for other supernatural believers in Jesus Christ. The great pyramid in Egypt has a lot of information about dates before and after the flood of Noah; proves exist that the pyramid survived the flood that cleaned out the first world except those saved with Noah. Now think for a moment who gave birth to Enoch, and who was the father of METHUSELAH; and the meaning of Methuselah. In whose day did the meaning of Methuselah fulfill. Who called him Methuselah, what did he know to give him such a name. Methuselah means the year of the flood.

Enoch was sixty five years (Genesis 5:21) old when he gave birth to his son Methuselah; verse 22 and said, and Enoch worked with God, verse 24, and he was not for God took him. God took Enoch at age 365 years, he was supernatural. Enoch had a short stay on earth, pleased God in so short a time, left prophecy in stone, the pyramid and in a name Methuselah. He called his son Methuselah by revelation. God allowed Enoch to see the coming judgment by the flood and to know that the year his son Methuselah dies the flood will come.

Peter praying
This is a supernatural deed, between the God of the supernatural and the supernatural people. God allowed Enoch to know about the flood, the plight of man on earth, the wickedness that is growing just like John the revelator was by supernatural power of the spirit shown the end time events of judgment. Enoch knew judgment was coming but God translated him that he should not see death, because he pleased God and that was supernatural.

Methuselah lived for 782 years after he gave birth to Lamech, who gave birth to Noah. Methuselah, Lamech and Noah lived for the next 600 years together, son, father and grandfather. Methuselah lived with his father Enoch, knew his father's work with God; must have asked his father why he named him Methuselah, and what it meant; this is something that must have guided him all his life to escape judgment. Lamech lived for 182 years and gave birth to Noah Genesis 5:29. In Genesis 7:6 it states Noah was 600 years old when the flood of water was upon the earth and that was the last year of Methuselah on the earth. Remember the year of the flood is the meaning of Methuselah. Noah's father Lamech died 5 years before the flood, God's mercy.

Revelations 7:4-8



Noah's grandfather Methuselah died the same year of the flood, obviously before the flood because by his name he had to die before the flood, Amen. All these are supernatural acts of God in the lives of SUPERNATURAL people. You are also supernatural if you belong to Jesus Christ. The year of the flood, the year of the translation if you believe and are expecting you are supernatural. Whenever the FLOOD is mentioned, Noah, Lamech, Methuselah, Enoch and God all come into play; because of the supernatural, revelation and a name, Methuselah.

In Genesis 15:4 the Lord God said unto ABRAM - but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir. Abraham gave birth to Isaac when he was 99 years and Sarah was 90 years old. This can only happen to people who are supernatural, peculiar, unusual and strange. God spoke to Abraham on several occasions, like he does to true believers. He promised Abraham that he would have children like the stars of heaven in number which we are part of it by faith and this is the lineage of the supernatural. Are you part of this? Joseph the grandson of Abraham proved by his speeches and deed that he was also supernatural.

St. Mark 16:15-18, speaks volumes for the supernatural people. If you do not believe this then the supernatural cannot be manifested out of you. Read Acts 28:1-9 and you will see the supernatural in action. Many of us believers today do not realize that we supernatural, wake up and soar like the eagle you are; it is all in the name of JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD, AMEN.

Jesus
Jacob had his ups and downs but you can see he was supernatural. Isaac was married to Rebekah for 20 years before she gave birth. In Genesis 25:23 the Lord said the elder shall serve the younger. While they were yet in their mother's womb the Lord said, Jacob I love and Esau do I hate. Jacob wrestled with the angel of God and prevailed, this is the power of the supernatural. He was blessed by the angel of God and eventually produced the twelve tribes if Israel.

In Revelations 7:4-8 and 21:12 tell you about the blessings and supernatural outcomes of these tribes of the children of Israel. By supernatural act Jacob was able in Genesis 49:1-2 to say to his children, "gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days." Jacob told his children of their future; this was the power of the supernatural working in Jacob and can also work in true believers in Jesus Christ.
