If you’ve been a born-again, Spirit-filled, Bible-believing Christian for any length of time, you are well aware that there are two realms – the physical, natural realm where we live and operate on a daily basis, and the spirit realm where God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the angels, and even satan and his demons operate.
What I want you to see is that these realms are not exclusive of each other; they’re intertwined. Things in the physical realm are contacted with our five physical senses – seeing, hearing, tasting, touching, and smelling. However, the things and beings in the spirit realm are very much real, although they’re unseen to the natural realm. They’re contacted by our spirit and the Word of faith.
The spirit realm is actually higher than the physical realm because the physical realm was created by the spirit realm; it’s the parent force.
So, what does all this mean? It means that if we’re going to be successful and victorious on planet earth, we have to recognize that the spirit realm is where all our answers are and we need to know how to access that realm and get our answers. How do we do it?
John 4:24 (KJV) 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
God is a Spirit and that’s how we contact Him – spirit to Spirit. Anything and everything we need from God is in the spirit realm, being protected from the enemy by God. We access that realm by using our faith which acts as a conduit to bring what is in the spirit realm into the physical ream which manifests itself as the answers to our prayers.
This, my dear brothers and sisters, is what we call our spiritual authority and it’s so exciting because it deals with God’s origin intent for us – Genesis 1:26.
Genesis 1:26 (KJV) 26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
This might seem like a lot to process but as we go on in upcoming blogs, I endeavor to explain this in more detail.
