Naturally Supernatural Session One

  1. 1. …. lifestyle The Challenge to live a….. NATURALLY SUPERNATURAL
  2. 2. NATURALLY SUPERNATURAL
  3. 3. New challenge - old issue Ex. 33
  4. 4. Moses said to the LORD, “You have been telling me, ‘Lead these people,’ but you have not let me know whom you will send with me. You have said, ‘I know you by name and you have found favor with me.’ If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. Remember that this nation is your people.”
  5. 5. The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
  6. 6. Then Moses said to him, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here. How will anyone know that you are pleased with me and with your people unless you go with us? What else will distinguish me and your people from all the other people on the face of the earth?”
  7. 7. What do we learn from this part of the revelation story about ‘naturally supernatural’ ?
  8. 8. Moses said to the LORD, “You have been telling me, ‘Lead these people,’ but you have not let me know whom you will send with me. You have said, ‘I know you by name and you have found favor with me.’ If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. Remember that this nation is your people.” The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Then Moses said to him, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here. How will anyone know that you are pleased with me and with your people unless you go with us? What else will distinguish me and your people from all the other people on the face of the earth?”
  9. 9. Details and Particulars HISTORICAL PARTICULARS
  10. 10. 1. Moses talked to God like any of us would talk to another person. 2. Moses didn’t assume that what he knew was going to be enough but kept on asking God the things he needed to know to complete the task assigned to him. 3. God spoke to Moses in a ‘natural’ way – i.e. using regular words.
  11. 11. 4. God responded by giving him what he needed, not just the answer to his question. 5. Moses gained a sharpened sense of what it meant to be the “people of God” from the encounter.
  12. 12. Truth for all times and circumstances UNIVERSAL PRINCIPLES
  13. 13. 1. I should talk to God the same way as I talk to any other person. 2. I need to keep on learning by talking to God and asking him for the things I need to know. 3. I need to anticipate that God will communicate with me in a way that is normal to me – [words, pictures, feelings].
  14. 14. 4. I need to notice carefully what God says to me, because he will be telling me what I need to know, not just the answer to my question. 5. I need to apply what God has told me to the whole situation, so that it will become a kingdom of God foundation, not just a passing fad.
  15. 15. Revelation always presents faith challenges FACING THE CHALLENGES AND TAKING THE RISKS
  16. 16. SOME COMMON ISSUES 1. How can I be sure that God will speak to me? 2. How do I know when it is from God and when it is just created by my own mind? 3. ??????
  17. 17. Making yourself accountable to DO what God says….. A NATURALLY SUPERNATURAL ‘TO DO’ LIST
  18. 18. 1. TIME AND PLACE Find the circumstances that will enable you to speak everything that is your heart to God. 2. DELIBERATE RISK Expect God to teach you and lead you by challenging what you already know with what you need to know. 3. GOD COMING TO YOU Presume that God can put new information or renewed old information in the sphere of your undertanding. Presume that he will speak to you.
  19. 19. 4. NOTE WELL: Notice carefully everything that comes to you in the interaction that is Jesus-looking , Biblical and Kingdom. 5. APPLY FULLY: Start to apply what God has said to your whole circumstances and see how differently they look from God’s point of view – and how differently you are to relate to them.
