SUPERNATURAL POWER 4-3-2020
Supernatural power is the power that goes beyond the natural forces. It goes beyond natural laws and scientific understanding. The world is seeking power. Power to rule and control mans actions and thoughts. But there is a power that lives in every believer who has the Holy Spirit. Supernatural force that raises the dead, cast out demons. and heals the sick. It is the church and we must stop being unimpressed with the power of the Holy Spirit that lives inside us and is upon us. Supernatural power proves to us that we have a new life.

9 Are we being put on trial today for doing an act of kindness by healing a frail, crippled man? Well then,
10 you and everyone else in Israel should know that it is by the power of the name of Jesus that the crippled man stands here today completely healed! You crucified Jesus Christ of Nazareth, but God raised him from the dead.

ACTS 4:13-14 The council members were astonished as they witnessed the bold courageof Peter and John, especially when they discovered that they were just ordinary men who had never had religious training. Then they began to understand the effect Jesus had on them simply by spending time with him.
