The Supernatural is Available to Us Today

Do you desire to see the supernatural operate through your life? Do you long to see healings, miracles, signs, and wonders occur on a regular basis? Do you want to find and be part of a church that models what we see in the book of Acts? Then this book is for you. It is not an accident the Spirit drew your attention to this book and led you to pick it up and read it. My goal is to help restore the supernatural in the church and to empower individuals to walk in confidence in releasing the gifts of the Spirit in their lives. The supernatural is supposed to be the norm for the church, not the exception.

We don’t need to return to the times of the book of Acts but to the principles upon which the early church was founded. That is the Word, the Spirit, the blood, the cross, His name, His presence and His healing power. We should not settle for anything less than a church operating in the power of God with regular demonstrations of the Spirit that set people free and draw them to the Lord. His church is a supernatural church that is distinct from every other religion and social club. We follow a resurrected Christ who is alive and present to do what He did when He walked the earth.

Slick programs and marketing campaigns are poor substitutes for the presence of God and the power of God! Yet that is what many churches have degraded into today. There is a huge disparity between dead, dry religion and a genuine move of the Spirit birthed by the ministry of the Word, the presence of God, and demonstrations of the Spirit of God. People are looking for the real deal today. They are hungry for the supernatural power of God and the Word of God.

I haven’t always known the true power of God and operated in the supernatural. I wasn’t raised in a strong Christian home. My parents were divorced when I was eight years of age. My mom and grandparents would take me occasionally to a denominational church in the city I lived in the Midwest. If I ever heard the message of the gospel taught one time when I attended that church, I don’t know it.

Later we moved to Texas and we occasionally attended a Baptist church. This is where I first heard the gospel preached. I didn’t receive the Lord during that time because I was too busy trying to impress the girls and I didn’t want anyone to know I wasn’t saved. When I met my future wife, I started attending the large Methodist church she belonged to. After we were married I received the Lord in that Methodist church based on the Word I had heard in the Baptist church I attended seven years before. In each of these three denominational churches I had attended, we rarely observed anything supernatural happening. The only exception to that was those who received salvation in the Baptist church where I first heard the gospel.

A couple of times during my teenage years I attended a Pentecostal church with one of my friends. What I observed there was the appearance of the supernatural, but it did not seem genuine. All the women had their hair up in buns, wore long dresses with long sleeves and no makeup. I guess the point of that was to appear holy so God would move supernaturally through them. Then the preacher would stand up and preach (yell) for an hour. Every time he would say “God,” he said it like this, “God-ah.” I guess he thought the volume of his preaching and the way he said God would release a greater anointing. Then it seemed like he was manipulating a move of the Spirit in the people by shaming them and “condemning” them to come down to the altar and get their lives right with God.

This didn’t look anything closer to the church in the book of Acts than the other three churches in those mainline denominations I attended. After I received the Lord, I would read the four gospels and the book of Acts and ask the Lord, “Where is a church today like what I see in Jesus’ ministry and the book of Acts?” During that time, I watched a few TV programs with Kathryn Kuhlman and Oral Roberts where they were ministering the Word and healing the sick. I was really attracted to these ministries. They were seeing many miracles, and people would share their healing testimonies. It was hard to deny this was the real supernatural power of God I had read about in the gospels and the book of Acts. And it was happening again today!

The other thing that attracted me to these two ministries is they both seemed so genuine, sincere, and full of the love of God. I asked the Lord, “How do they perform miracles and see so many people healed and saved in their ministries and crusades? Was there something special about them that caused You to choose them and use them in these ways? Or could it be possible that John 14:12 I had read many times was true and we could all operate in the supernatural power of God?”

    Most assuredly I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father (John 14:12).

I didn’t hear the Lord speak anything to me at that time. There was just a strong sense in my heart that the supernatural was still for the church today and available to those who believed what Jesus said in John 14:12. The problem was I did not know any individuals or churches that believed and modeled this. The church we were attending was dead from my perspective. The pastor would preach many times out of the newspaper or the Reader’s Digest. And I was becoming more and more dissatisfied and seeking the Lord for a genuine demonstration of the supernatural like I saw in the book of Acts.

It is not possible to seek the Lord regarding something He has promised in His Word and it not be fulfilled.

    Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled (Matthew 5:6).

At this time my wife and I found a Christian television network that broadcast in our area. It was called the 700 Club. Pat Robertson and Ben Kinchlow were the hosts. Each program highlighted supernatural testimonies of God’s saving, delivering, and healing power in the lives of people. I was drawn and attracted to these TV ministry hosts in the same way I was a few years before to Kathryn Kuhlman and Oral Roberts. There was something genuine and sincere about these men and there was no denying the things I read about in the book of Acts were happening through their ministry.

I could see the love of God in their eyes and feel it coming from their hearts through these broadcasts directly into my heart. Could it be God was answering my prayer by leading me to watch this program? They began to teach about the book of Acts and the things we read there were available for each of us today. Then they taught about the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. They said this was a subsequent experience to salvation and it was essential to operating in the supernatural. They showed us in the Word when the church started, all the disciples were filled with the Spirit and received a new spiritual language—tongues. This gave them power to go out and witness and do the works of Jesus!

    But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth (Acts 1:8).

    And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance (Acts 2:4).

They said that receiving the Baptism in the Spirit was the key to releasing the supernatural in our lives and seeing the same things we read about in the book of Acts manifest today. I had never heard about this in any of the churches I had attended. I am sure that is why we weren’t seeing the supernatural things today as we saw in the book of Acts. Within a few weeks my wife and I were both filled with the Spirit. We also found a Spirit-filled church that taught and believed in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, the gifts of the Spirit, and the healing power of God. Once we received the Baptism in the Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues, my wife and I both became much more sensitive to the Holy Spirit and available to release the gifts of the Spirit and minister healing to others.

Filled with the Spirit

This was amazing. None of this happened prior to us being filled with the Spirit. But now we were seeing supernatural things manifest in and through our lives on a regular basis. We learned how to have a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit as we prayed in the Spirit, listened to and were led by the Spirit, and remained dependent upon the Spirit each day. We actually began living out the book of Acts in our lives. Praise God, He answered our prayer and desire to flow in the supernatural. And He will do the same for you!

For more than four decades now, my wife and I have experienced signs, wonders, and miracles. The supernatural has operated freely through our lives. We have witnessed the blind see, the deaf hear, and the lame walk. I was healed of cancer in 1977. Our son, Michael, was healed of a serious muscular, arthritic condition the following year. Our daughter-in-law, Jessica, received a miracle healing of the supernatural removal of scar tissue from her internal organs that allowed her to give us three additional grandchildren! And our granddaughter, Joelle, received a miracle healing from clubbed feet in her mother’s womb.

We have seen scores of people healed through our church, ministry, and through previous books I have written. (See gregmohr.com for more information on these books.) We have also witnessed literally thousands of normal, average, everyday believers and church members heal the sick, perform miracles, and move in the supernatural. The book of Acts is the only book in the New Testament that is not complete. It is one of the few books that doesn’t have an “Amen” at the end of it. We are living now in Acts chapter 29! Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He is still doing through His church what He did when He walked the earth.

    So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you” (John 20:21).

Whatever you see Jesus doing in the gospels and the church doing in the book of Acts, He has sent you and me to do. That is a powerful revelation. We are His body on the earth today—His arms and hands extended to a lost and hurting world. Will you go for Him? This book, Flowing in the Supernatural, will help you develop confidence in operating in the gifts and moving in the supernatural. God shows no favorites. If He will do that for us, He will do it for you.

If you have not yet been filled with the Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues, I encourage you to skip over to Chapters 19 and 20 in this book: “The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is the Doorway to the Supernatural” and “The Benefits of Praying in Tongues.” Once you receive this precious gift of being filled with the Spirit, your understanding and heart will be much more receptive to the other principles in this book.

I pray that you will be filled with the Spirit, receive the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Jesus, and the eyes of your understanding will be enlightened to know all that is available to you to do His works and move in the supernatural!
