This gives us confidence for the Day of Judgment.

  6. 6. Keys To The Supernatural Lifestyle In Christ Prayerfully read and meditate on these scriptures every day First Key: Be filled with the Holy Spirit            The Holy Spirit came down on him in physical form like a dove; and a voice came from heaven, "You are my Son, whom I love; I am well pleased with you." Luke 3:22 [The Holy Spirit is a real person] Then Jesus, filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness. Luke 4:1 [First filled then led by the Spirit] But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; you will be my witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, indeed to the ends of the earth!" Acts 1:8[Master Key: You must be filled] Now I am sending forth upon you what my Father promised, so stay here in the city until you have been equipped with power from above." Luke 24:49 [The Holy Spirit is a promise to every believer][He will be upon them for service] They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to talk in different languages, as the Spirit enabled them to speak. Acts 2:4 [They were filled to walk as Christ walked][The first supernatural act was praying with other tongues] Don't get drunk with wine, because it makes you lose control. Instead, keep on being filled with the Spirit. Ephesians 5:18 [you must continually be filled] What about God, who supplies you with the Spirit and works miracles among you - does he do it because of your legalistic observance of Torah commands or because you trust in what you heard and are faithful to it? Galatians 3:5 [MASTER KEY: Trust what you hear from the Holy Spirit and be faithful to it] [Never abandon it!!] But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything; that is, he will remind you of everything I have said to you. John 14:26 [Master Key: The holy Spirit will bring every single prophecy, revelation, and the word of God to your remembrance] But you have received the Messiah's anointing from Spirit, and you know all this. 1 John 2:20 [Master Key: The Holy Spirit gives the anointing] And how surpassingly great is his power working in us who trust him. It works with the same mighty strength he used, when he worked in the Messiah to raise him from the dead and seat him at his right hand in heaven. Ephesians 1:19-20 [ Master Key: we have access to the same measure of strength and power of God that He exercised when he raised Christ from the dead] So John answered them all, "I am immersing you in water, but he who is coming is more powerful than I -I'm not worthy to untie his sandals! He will immerse you in the Holy Spirit and in fire. Luke 3:16 [Master Key: The Christ ( the Anointed One) is the giver of the Holy Spirit and fire] Second and Third Key: Be led by the Spirit and Obey the Spirit    All who are led by God's Spirit are God's sons. Romans 8:14 [Key to the full manifestation of sonship: Sons are led by the Spirit of God] Then Jesus, filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness. Luke 4:1 [ Master key: Jesus was led by the Holy Spirit] Therefore, Jesus said this to them: "Yes, indeed! I tell you that the Son cannot do anything on his own, but only what he sees the Father doing; whatever the Father does, the Son does too. John 5:19 [Master Key: We should have the same principle: doing what the Father and Jesus does] 5|Page
  7. 7. Keys To The Supernatural Lifestyle In Christ   Don't you believe that I am united with the Father, and the Father united with me? What I am telling you, I am not saying on my own initiative; the Father living in me is doing his own works. John 14:10 [ Master Key: Jesus completely relied on the Father] They traveled through the region of Phrygia and Galatia, because they had been prevented by the Holy Spirit from speaking the message in the province of Asia. When they came to the frontier of Asia, they tried to go into Bithynia; but the Spirit of Jesus would not let them. So, after passing by Asia, they came down to Troas. There a vision appeared to Paul at night. A man from Macedonia was standing and begging him, "Come over to Macedonia and help us!" As soon as he had seen the vision, we lost no time getting ready to leave for Macedonia; for we concluded that God had called us to proclaim the Good News to them. Acts 16:6-10 [ Master Key: We must adjust to and immediately obey the Holy Spirit’s Lead’] Fourth Key: Humility    Likewise, you who are less experienced, submit to leaders. Further, all of you should clothe yourselves in humility toward one another, because God opposes the arrogant, but to the humble he gives grace. 1 Peter 5:5 [Master Key: God resist the proud and gives grace (supernatural empowerment) to the humble] [ Master key: Submit to (respect) those that God has place over you for they care for your soul ;while submitting to (respect) each other] Now if I, the Lord and Rabbi, have washed your feet, you also should wash each other's feet. For I have set you an example, so that you may do as I have done to you. Yes, indeed! I tell you, a slave is not greater than his master, nor is an emissary greater than the one who sent him. If you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them. John 13:14-17 [Master Key: True authority serves from a heart of humility.] For the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve -- and to give his life as a ransom for many." Mark 10:45 [ Master key: He came to Earth from Heaven to serve and to lay down His life for all of humanity] Fifth Key: Developing a relationship with God (to know Him) by regularly praying, studying the word and with fasting       And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he pervert by flatteries: but the people that know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. Daniel 11:32 [ Master Key: The people of God shall receive supernatural empowerment for strength and to show forth the Power of God] However, he made a practice of withdrawing to remote places in order to pray. Luke 5:16 [Master Key: Get alone with God and eliminating all distractions] Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left, went away to a lonely spot and stayed there praying. Mark 1:35 [Master Key: He had two regular times of prayers. He sought God early in the morning. He always started the day with prayer] After he had sent the crowds away, he went up into the hills by himself to pray. Night came on, and he was there alone. Matthew 14:23 [Master Key: He always ended the day with prayer. He did not wait until He was sleepy to end the day with prayer. He spent extended time in prayer] But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith, and pray in union with the Holy Spirit. Jude 1:20 [Master Key: Build your faith by praying in the Holy Spirit it stirs up the kingdom of heaven within you] Similarly, the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we don't know how to pray the way we should. But the Spirit himself pleads on our behalf with groaning’s too deep for words; and the one who searches hearts knows exactly what the Spirit is thinking, because his pleadings for God's people accord with God's will. 6|Page
  8. 8. Keys To The Supernatural Lifestyle In Christ          Romans 8:26-27 [ Master Key: Praying in the Holy Spirit is the perfect prayer when you do not know God’s will or you desire for his perfect will in your life] For someone speaking in a tongue is not speaking to people but to God, because no one can understand, since he is uttering mysteries in the power of the Spirit. 1 Corinthians 14:2 [Master Key: Speaking in tongues is a way to have direct communication with God and mysteries can be revealed] Also John’s disciples and the Pharisees were fasting; and they came and asked Jesus, "Why is it that John’s disciples and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but your disciples don't fast?" Jesus answered them, "Can the wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is still with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them, fasting is out of the question. But the time will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them; and when that day comes, they will fast. Mark 2:18-20 [Master Key: Jesus declares that the disciples will fast] People can fast as a community of believers or individually. "Now when you fast, don't go around looking miserable, like the hypocrites. They make sour faces so that people will know they are fasting. Yes! I tell you, they have their reward already! Matthew 6:16 [Master Key: Fasting should be done privately between you and God. What we do secret; He rewards openly] After appointing elders for them in every congregation, Paul and Barnabas, with prayer and fasting, committed them to the Lord in whom they had put their trust. Acts 14:23 [Master Key: At times prayer and fasting were combine. In these times the spiritual senses and gifts increase because we are more in tune with the Holy Spirit] But this kind does not go out except through prayer and fasting. Matthew 17:21 [It releases an increase of faith and remove doubt. The combination releases supernatural empowerment] Pay attention to yourself and to the teaching; continue in it, for by so doing you will deliver both yourself and those who hear you. 1 Timothy 4:16 [Master Key: Watch your actions, thoughts, and words] Do all you can to present yourself to God as someone worthy of his approval, as a worker with no need to be ashamed, because he deals straightforwardly with the Word of the Truth? 2 Timothy 2:15 [Master Key: Handling the word with reverence is what proves us worthy of His approval] But you, you have closely followed my teaching, conduct, purpose in life, trust, steadfastness, love and perseverance 2 Timothy 3:10 [ Master Key: He paid close attention to every detail and all that would be beneficial to his life in Christ] But you continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, recalling the people from whom you learned it; and recalling too how from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which can give you the wisdom that leads to deliverance through trusting in Jesus the Messiah. All Scripture is God-breathed and is valuable for teaching the truth, convicting of sin, correcting faults and training in right living; thus anyone who belongs to God may be fully equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:1417 [Master Key: Honor your spiritual parent and honor your spiritual heritage. All scripture is the essence of God’s breath (Spirit). It can be used to the benefit all who seek out godliness] Sixth and seventh key: Serve God and Speak with boldness (Knowing that god will confirm is word)   Proclaim the Word! Be on hand with it whether the time seems right or not. Convict, censure and exhort with unfailing patience and with teaching. 2 Timothy 4:2 [ Master Key: You must proclaim the Word and Always be prepared to share it when directed by the Spirit] But you, remain steady in every situation, endure suffering, do the work that a proclaimer of the Good News should, and do everything your service to God requires. 2 Timothy 4:5 [Master Key: Endure hardness like a good soldier. Find out God’s requirements for you and do them. Do what you know you should be doing has a proclaimer of the gospel] 7|Page
  9. 9. Keys To The Supernatural Lifestyle In Christ    Don't deceive yourselves by only hearing what the Word says, but do it! James 1:22 [Master Key: Do what the Word tells you to do] And they went out and proclaimed everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the message by the accompanying signs. Mark 16:20 [ Master Key: The Holy Spirit Confirm the message (the word that they proclaimed) While God also bore witness to it with various signs, wonders and miracles, and with gifts of the Holy Spirit which he distributed as he chose. Hebrews 2:4 [Master Key: Faith, compassion and the proclaiming of the Word releases The hand of God to move supernaturally] Eighth Key: Put on Christ    Instead, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus the Messiah; and don't waste your time thinking about how to provide for the sinful desires of your old nature. Romans 13: [Master Key: Make a conscious effort to put on (be clothed with) the identity of who Christ is and all that he possess] Because as many of you as were immersed into the Messiah have clothed yourselves with the Messiah, in whom there is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor freeman, neither male nor female; for in union with the Messiah Jesus, you are all one. Galatians 3:27-28 [Master Key: When we personally identify with the burial and resurrection of Jesus we are immediately clothed with Christ. Our full identity is tied into the our brothers and sister in Christ Jesus] And have put on the new self, which is continually being renewed in fuller and fuller knowledge, closer and closer to the image of its Creator. Colossians 3:10 [Master Key: I Have put on the character of Christ and with every revelation of who Christ and the Father are I am continually renewed. Because of the increased revelation I am continually being changed into the image of God] W.O.W ( walking on water) Supernatural Scriptures       Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those afflicted with leprosy, and expel demons. You have received without paying, so give without asking payment Matthew 10:8 Yes, indeed! I tell you that whoever trusts in me will also do the works I do! Indeed, he will do greater ones, because I am going to the Father. John 14:12 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; you will be my witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, indeed to the ends of the earth!" Acts 1:8 For someone speaking in a tongue is not speaking to people but to God, because no one can understand, since he is uttering mysteries in the power of the Spirit. 1 Corinthians 14:2 The God of our Lord Jesus the Messiah, the glorious Father, to give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you will have the full knowledge of him. I pray that he will give light to the eyes of your hearts, so that you will understand the hope to which he has called you, what rich glories there are in the inheritance he has promised his people, and how surpassingly great is his power working in us who trust him. It works with the same mighty strength he used when he worked in the Messiah to raise him from the dead and seat him at his right hand in heaven, Ephesians 1:17-20 I pray that from the treasures of his glory he will empower you with inner strength by his Spirit, Ephesians 3:16 These scriptures can only be manifested in our lives through the supernatural empowerment of God released through the Holy Spirit. Jesus and the apostle dependent and trusted that God would fulfill is word through the 8|Page
  10. 10. Keys To The Supernatural Lifestyle In Christ Holy Spirit. Divine abandonment is when someone can fully abandon their will, desires and dream to follow Christ without regret. These all devoted themselves single-mindedly to prayer, along with some women, including Mary (Jesus mother), and his brothers. Acts 1:14 [Final Key: devout yourself to prayer and tarry in His presence. Do not be a hurry to leave Him. Let true and Living God reveal Himself to you and through you. The cross was the beginning; however. It is the empty tomb and the ascension to the right hand of the Father that has giving access the presence of God and his supernatural empowerment.] Prayer: Father in the name of Jesus I decree a release of supernatural empowerment in the lives of those that hold and cherish your words today. I release the grace that is at work in then into its full manifestation by the power of the Holy Spirit that they may live a supernatural lifestyle in the name of Jesus the Messiah and Father it is for your glory. Now just pray in tongues and do not stop until you feel a rest come over you because then the Holy Spirit has completed what He came to do. Today is the beginning of the supernatural lifestyle for you. Derek Prince When I was serving in the British army during World War II, I was stationed in the deserts of North Africa. One negative aspect of desert living conditions is that they tend to provoke murmuring and complaining. This happened with Israel many times, and it often brought God’s judgment and disfavor upon them. I got so weary of the desert, the food, and the blaspheming British soldiers that I began to complain. When I did this, I lost the sense of God’s presence and blessing. I decided to set aside a special day to fast and to ask God why His presence seemed to have withdrawn from me. I said, “God, why are you not near to me? Why do I have to continue this monotonous, wearisome life in the desert?” By evening, God had given me the answer. He spoke to me very clearly, saying, “Why have you not thanked me? Why have you not praised me?” As I meditated on what God said, I realized that I had lost the sense of His presence because I had become unthankful. In due course, the Holy Spirit directed me to various passages along this line, including 1 Thessalonians 5:16–19: “Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not quench the Spirit” (NASB). Again, the implication is that if we do not rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and give thanks in everything, we are quenching the Holy Spirit! By murmuring and complaining instead of praising and giving thanks, I had quenched the Holy Spirit in me. God expects us to continually offer up a sacrifice of praise from our lips—not just inwardly from our hearts. We have to make our praise vocal by giving thanks to the name of the Lord! Cheryl Johnson Fritz If you're moving out into the supernatural ministry realm, chances are, God is challenging you to do something that's going to stretch you FAR beyond the reaches of your comfort zone. Don't let the fear of looking stupid in front of other people cripple you. I'd rather look stupid in front of other people, than look stupid in front of God. 9|Page
