X O D U S INSIDE WORD S tepping into the SUPERNATURAL Colossians 3:1-3 If you then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God. 2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For you are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. The Kainos man seeks those things which are above and not the things on the earth because he was created according to God in righteousness and true holiness. God speaks by His Spirit to the Kainos man, that is, your regenerated spirit man. Your spirit man communicates with your mind to relay what the Holy Spirit is saying so you can apply it to your practical life. Many people do not know when their spirit man is trying to contact them with a message from God and thereby fall short of kingdom experiences. Stepping into the supernatural entails tuning into the spirit man and doing what he leads us to do. Accidents, losses, and failures will cease if you would master how your spirit man contacts you. Your spirit man can be years ahead of your mind in information gathering because the Bible says the Holy Spirit will show you things to come. You can live in such a way that you are not in the dark about what is happening in your life or around you. You can know things two years before they happen, by walking in the spirit. The spirit man, though born again, may remain a captive. Not a captive of the devil this time, but a captive of strange thought patterns, a captive of an un-renewed mind, a captive of the undisciplined body. That is why the Bible says we should put our body under the spirit. God will not do that for you. The Holy Spirit may be living inside somebody in His majesty and the greatness of God and the person may still be committing fornication. It is very possible simply because the person has not learnt how to bring his body under subjection. Romans 8:13 For if you live according to the flesh, you shall die: but if you through the Spirit put to death the deeds of the body, you shall live. Regular fasting and serious meditation on the Word of God will help keep the body under every day. Left to itself, the body prefers to watch TV every day. You won’t see the body ever wake up and feel like praying or reading the Bible. It does not like spiritual things, and it was not that God created the body to hate spiritual things. Originally, the body of man was made to walk and cooperate with the spirit in exercising might and authority. But immediately man sinned, the soul began to operate, and the soul is not spiritual. The soul is still a part of the world, so it trained the body to function and respond to worldly stimuli. Hebrews 5: 14 But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. You can have this body trained to respond to the spirit. A lot of us have trained our bodies to respond to sickness and fear. A lot of sickness that people have is not as a result of the sickness gaining control, but the body just responding to what you have trained it to do. This body needs a master to train it. If you do not train it in the way of righteousness, it will not behave righteously. It is your own responsibility and it is what you train the body to do that will affect your spiritual life. We can, by the help of the Holy Spirit, find out ways by which our spirit man gets across to us. Your spirit man is on the inside of you. Sometimes we refer to your spirit man as the inward man. 12

I N S I D E W O R D - t h e S u p e r n a t u r a l If you can understand him, he will help you and bail you out of troubles because he is the one that the Holy Spirit indwells and relates with. This knowledge of how your spirit contacts you is critical to the success of every Christian on the earth and for stepping into the supernatural. Let us look at some ways by which your spirit contacts you. Compulsion and Restraint. How do you know that you should or should not do something? There is either a compelling or restraining on the inside of you. It could be the spirit compelling you to do or the spirit restraining you from doing. Acts 16:7 After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not. Compulsion means to make somebody do something by force or by strong persuasion—something that limits one’s freedom of action. Compulsion is a strong inner pressure to go ahead. Therefore, it is possible for your spirit man to compel you to do something. Restraint is an equally strong inner pressure not to go ahead. To compel is likened to a man under pressure to go to the bathroom; he is only relieved after answering the call of nature. In the same way the spirit compels you. You are refreshed /feel free only when you do what the spirit compels you to do. Job 32:18-20 For I am full of words, the spirit within me compels me. 19 Behold, my belly is as wine which has no vent; it is ready to burst like new wine skins. 20 I will speak, that I may be refreshed: I must open my lips and answer. You are only refreshed if you do what the spirit compels you to do. You are preserved when you refuse to do what He restrains you from doing. Perception The word ‘perceive’ physically speaking can apply to your sight. But we are not dealing with physical perception. To perceive something is to notice or be conscious of something, to be conscious of somebody in the shadows or of something hidden. Acts 14: 8-10 8. And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother’s womb, who never had walked: 9. The same heard Paul speak: who steadfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed, 10. Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked. That man’s faith would have gone unnoticed if Paul had not perceived in his spirit that he had faith to be healed. He would have left that meeting still crippled, but Paul perceived and spoke the word that launched him to his feet. April 2018 13
