Engaging the wonders in the Word!

September is here again! For us, it shall be a month of strange miracles, signs and wonders to remember in the precious name of Jesus! God’s Word is pregnant with wonders. However, until we believe what the Word says about us, God is not committed to perform it (Luke 1:45; see also Genesis 13:14-15; Deuteronomy 28:1-13; Psalms 119:18). 
Again, it is important to know that the Kingdom of God is governed by mysteries, through which we command mastery over life’s situations and circumstances. However, we must understand that mysteries are divine revelations from scriptures that are wrapped up in biblical simplicities. That is why Jesus, while explaining the Parable Of The Sower to his disciples, said: …Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand. Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God (Luke 8:10-11; Mark 4:11; Ephesians 3:1-5; Colossians 1:25-27; 2 Corinthians 11:3).
In other words, God’s Words are mysteries that we operate to gain mastery over life situations. However, we must receive, believe and put them to work before the wonders therein can be delivered (James 1:22). Again, it is written: Meditate upon these things (God’s Word); give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all (1 Timothy 4:15).
“Profiting” in the above scripture means wonders. It is important to know that Christianity will remain an adventure in frustration without commitment to Word practice. This is because only the Word we put to work guarantees profitable living (Wonders), not the one we preach or reverence (James 1:25).
But, what are these wonders embedded in God’s Word?
First, we must understand that God’s Word is not just full of revelations, but also of spiritual pictures. This is because the Word of God is a spiritual mirror that shows us who we are, what we are worth and what we can do (James 1:23-25).
When we catch a glimpse of who God says we are from the mirror/glass of scripture and practice same, we are guaranteed profitable living in Christ Jesus. That is why the Bible says: Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place (2 Corinthians 2:14).
Based on the above scripture, one of the wonders embedded in the Word is triumphant living. That means when we access revelation (knowledge) from God’s Word, we are divinely illuminated and empowered to triumph over every challenging situation of life.
Let us examine scriptural pictures that validate our triumphant destiny in Christ Jesus.
At redemption, there was a change of position:  When Jesus rose from the dead, every redeemed child of God became a part of His resurrection and is seated with Jesus in heavenly places, far above principalities and powers (Ephesians 1:20-21; 2:6).
Thus, by redemption, we are above the realms where principalities and powers torment people. When we catch the picture of our new position in Christ from scriptures, our confidence in God and in confronting the powers of darkness, is enhanced (Colossians 1:13; Psalms 119:130).
·      Jesus is the Stone in Zion: From scriptures, we understand that Jesus is the Chief Corner Stone and every believer is sent after the same order (Ephesians 2:20; Matthew 21:42, 44). That means by redemption, we are also made lively stones and as such, we are turned into rocks of offense. Thus, anyone who dares to stop us shall be broken to pieces and those we confront, shall be grinded to powder (John 20:21; 1 Peter 2:5).
We also understand from scripture that Jesus is the living Word of God. That means the Word of God is the Stone in Zion. When we operate in that revelation, the Word turns us into rocks of offense in Zion.
·      God is a consuming fire: From scriptures, we understand that our God is a consuming fire. We also understand that God’s Word, is God in print. This helps us to understand that God’s Word is a consuming fire that has unlimited capacity to destroy all forms of evil stubbles on our paths (Deuteronomy 4:24; Hebrews 12:29; Daniel 3:17-28; Jeremiah 23:29).
·      We are turned to spiritual “illuminants”: By revelation from God’s Word, we are turned into spiritual “illuminants” and thus empowered to dominate the powers of darkness. For instance, when we turn on the light in a dark room, darkness disappears automatically. Similarly, when we walk in the reality of God’s picture for us from scriptures, we triumph over the powers of darkness, cheaply (John 1:1-5, 9; Isaiah 60:1-3, 8, 22).
However, it is not enough to recognize the wonders in God’s Word; we must identify the channels of impartation that guarantee our triumphant destiny in redemption.
What, then, are the Channels through which scriptural wonders flow?
Ø  Prophetic proclamations: The Bible says: Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy… (1 Timothy 4:14; Hosea 12:13).
Ø  Laying on of hands: We can experience impartation of grace and transference of spirits via laying on of hands (2 Timothy 1:6-7).
Ø  Through the prophetic mantle: God’s prophets do not only carry the anointing on their bodies but it also overflows to their garments (Psalms 45:8; Matthew 14:35-36).
However, to access the flow of wonders in God’s Word through the mantle, we must engage the following:
ü  Believe in God’s prophet (Matthew 10:42).
ü  Believe that the prophet is sent to us for a change of story (Luke 4:25-27).
ü We must believe that the prophet occupies a higher place than we do in God: Remember, water never flows uphill but downhill (Psalms 133:1-3; Hebrews 7:7).
When we submit ourselves to these demands, we tap into the flow of virtue through the prophetic mantle of God’s anointed prophet.
Friend, we must understand that every book in the world is made up of letters, only the Bible is made up of wonders. However, until we receive, believe and practice the demands therein, we are not entitled to the wonders embedded in God’s Word. It is, therefore, my prayer that you are imparted with grace for a diligent search of scriptures, for the wonders therein to be visible in your life!
Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Saviour and Lord? If you haven’t, you can do so as you say this prayer: “Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me of my sins. Cleanse me with Your precious Blood. Deliver me from sin and satan to serve the Living God. Today, I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Thank You Jesus for saving me! Now I know I am born again!” For further reading, please get my books: Maximized Destiny, Making Maximum Impact, All You Need To Have All Your Needs Met, Miracle seed and The Force Of Freedom.
