“But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.” (1 Cor. 2:10-12)

When you and I release the Holy Spirit to brood over our lives… something is bound to happen! The Bible calls these spiritual activities… miracles or signs & wonders. They are “manifestations of God by the Spirit”. God wants to offer His Children revelation knowledge… Truth that will release freedom in the unseen realms. This insight and foresight gives the ability to discern the heart of God and make effective decisions and advance the Kingdom of God into Earthly circumstances.

Defining Manifestations:

A “manifestation” is not the creation of anything, it is simply the moving of spiritual substance – “grace”/divine favor – from one dimension to another (vision, healing, salvation… etc.). When we are given a spiritual revelation from the Holy Spirit, it is not the creation of something new, but the awareness of something unseen with natural perception. It is the light bulb in the room from the Holy Spirit, and when turned on; it reveals everything that was in the room… that in “darkness” we could not see or understand.

Effective Fervent Prayer: (James 5:16-18)

We need to be confident in living by spiritual revelation and manifestations, because they are the foundation to an effective prayer life. Prayer is not twisting God’s arm to our agenda, it is the twisting of our mind to His (1 Cor. 2:16). Thinking as God and seeing what He sees, means we need to change the way we see and hear natural realities. Jesus said that nothing would be impossible to those who believe… that they would experience His Glory and shift reality to conform to His purpose and “will”. When we properly understand and operate in prayer, God brings revelation to us of everything He has finished in the spiritual dimension. A manifestation translates or moves spiritual things into the “earth realm”… as it is in the “heavenly realm” (Mt. 6:10). God didn’t call you the day of your salvation, for He had already chosen you from before the foundation of creation. You realized your purpose and calling as revelation came into your heart and mind… Holy Spirit just turned on the light! His work was complete… but He simply lifted the veil for you to see what was already there from before the foundation of the world… hidden for you to find. All you need to do is – love Him!

But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” (1 Cor. 2:9)
