I recently heard prophet Bobby Conner tell of a conversation he had with the Lord that was both hilarious and enlightening. One day, he was in his car worshipping, saying, “Oh, God, there is no one like You!” To His surprise, the Father immediately responded, “Ain’t that a shame!”
For he knew all about us before we were born and he destined us from the beginning to share the likeness of his Son. This means the Son is the oldest among a vast family of brothers and sisters who will become just like him.
–Romans 8:29, TPT
The moment you were born again, you entered a realm that is outside of time, and you really did die with Christ. You became one with Him, so that His resurrected and ascended life could flow supernaturally through you… manifesting miracles, which, as you now know, are normal. We are called to literally be Him in the earth… not just in spirit, but in tangible manifestation!
…be keener than ever to work out the salvation that God has given you with a proper sense of awe and responsibility. For it is God who is at work within you, giving you the will and the power to achieve his purpose. –Philippians 2:12-13, JBP
Remember, co-creation happens when you come into alignment with God and with yourself, so that the miracle that happened in your spirit can work its way out, transforming your soul, transfiguring your body and terraforming the earth. We’ve talked a lot over the last few months about how to bring your mind, will, emotions,
imagination and words into alignment. Now, you will learn how to keep that miraculous process working its way outward into the physical, tangible realm.
The adversary prefers to keep humankind earth-locked and unaware of spiritual reality. But if we do awaken, he will settle for causing that reality to remain “dead” (without tangible manifestation).
Just as the body gives expression to the spirit, so actions give expression to faith.
–James 2:26, MIRB
The Passion Translation says it this way:
For just as a human body without the spirit is a dead corpse, so faith without the expression of good works is dead!
The word dead in this passage is Strong’s #G3498, which means, “lifeless, destitute of force or power, inactive, inoperative.” That sounds like the exact opposite of the definition of dunamis (miracle power) you learned several months ago, doesn’t it? Using that definition, a good paraphrase of this verse would be: “…faith without tangible agreement and physical expression does not birth miracles!”
In the Divine pattern of creation, Yeshua correlates with your words, but He also correlates with your body. He is the Word made flesh.
Suddenly the invisible, eternal Word takes on visible form — the Incarnation on display in a flesh and blood person as in a mirror! In him, and now confirmed in us! The most accurate tangible display of God’s eternal thought finds expression in human life! The Word became a human being; we are his address; he resides in us!
–John 1:14, MIRB
God gave dominion over the earth to man, who was formed from its substance, so we must have a physical body in order to interface with and exercise dominion over the physical realm. Lucifer had no power, except that which was given to him by Adam. Demons, as well as angels, heavenly beings and ones from the cloud of witnesses, must find agreement with living humans in order to exert influence in the earth realm. God Himself, though He is sovereign, chooses to work in the earth through us rather than apart from us, operating through the pattern He Himself established. This is why Yeshua took on human flesh to redeem mankind and to take back lost glory and dominion. The human body is of the utmost importance!
Next week, you’ll learn how you (yes, you!) are a gate of heaven! And then, in the following weeks, we’ll talk about specific external anchors that are designed by God to help that miraculous power deep within you to work its way out. So stay tuned.
