If we observe the life of the Bible characters, they were actually ordinary people who were full of weaknesses and limitations just like us! The reason they received the abilities to do great things and impact their generation was because they experienced several supernatural events that made them connected with the dimension of Godliness which they need as the answer to their generation.
For example: for Abraham and Sara overcoming their physical weaknesses (they couldn’t have children), they ought to connect with God’s existence who begins everything (Jehovah/ Yahweh) – the Existing One, God is the source, substance and beginning of everything (Genesis 15:7)
For Joshua crushing down the wall of Jericho, he needed the manifestation of the revelation about Jehova Tseba’oth – God is the commander of God’s army (Joshua 5:14) and the manifestation of the existence of Jehova Tseba’oth was later accessed again by David when he had to defeat Goliath (1 Samuel 17:45)
This is because basically men were created by God with two different elements: from dust and His breath of life (Genesis 2:7). With God using the dust as one of the elements of human existence, we can move and do our activities freely in natural world; and the element of God’s breath gives us the ability to interact freely with various dynamics and activities that happen in the spiritual world!
The biggest problem that makes men like they lose their ability to interact with the spiritual world and experience the great benefits of that interaction is because the fall of men has conditioned most of them to be focus on mere outward things. The access to the most basic element of the real life ‘had been closed’ by God (Genesis 3: 23-24). As a result of sin, men are conditioned or forced to live by relying on their own physical strength or skills – which definitely makes them full of limitations and weaknesses.
Even though, naturally their sensitivity of spiritual or supernatural things has never gone (Genesis 3:8; Job 4:15) but their ability of fully using various spiritual dimension that has a creation effect and being able to influence this natural world is like ‘imprisoned or locked up’ something!
For that reason, through the redemption of Christ, our existence as believers are continuously rebuilt by the power of the word and Spirit to get connected again with various divine dimensions that exist in the spirit world in order to give us the same position like Adam’s before his falling to sin or like Jesus when He lived on this earth as a man!
Romans 5:17 (NKJV) For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.
The access to the ‘tree of life’ is reopen to every believer; the access to do great things in our generation has been given by God to us! #ILoveGod
