Is there such a place called the spirit realm? Is the supernatural real? Many people deny the existence of both the supernatural and the spirit realm. But just because one does not see the wind does not mean it is not there. Evidence of the wind is seen by its effects on other things. We may not see supernatural things physically, but like the wind, we see its effects.
The Bible says in Hebrews 11:3: “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God so that things which are seen were not made from this which do appear.” The spirit realm affects the natural, but then what is this realm? The spirit realm is more real than the natural world we see. Everything we see first existed in the spirit. Anything that happens in the spirit affects the natural, so if one masters the spiritual, they become masters here in the natural. Samson was small and slim yet because of the anointing, he had the strength of more than a thousand men. Samson’s strength was not physical but spiritual. When people looked at him they did not see a gaint, yet this single man killed a thousand man with a jaw bone of an ass (Judges 15:14-18).
He lost this power because he lost his hair, how was it possible? (Judges 16:20). The power was not in the hair but the hair was part of the agreement made between God and his parents. So the hair in itself was without power, but the words that bound the agreement. What made Samson strong was the one that God had made the covenant with his parents. The spirit realm has laws and rules that don’t make sense in the natural world. If one masters theses rules they master this dimension and if they master the spiritual, they automatically have impact in the natural.
No amount of training could the Phillistines have gone through in order to overpower Samson in a physical fight because his source of power was unlimited and the potential he had unimaginable. So for them to overcome Samson they had to use him to reveal the secret of his strength.
Like Samson you can have unlimited potential but the secret is to have an understanding of the spiritual realm. Even after Samson hair grew back he did not have the strength because the strength was not in the hair. Samson strength came back only because he asked the one who had given him the power at the beginning to restore it.
In the spirit realm there are two sources of power: one Godly and another demonic. The fruits you produce are because of the source of your power.
For God to create the world it was through his spirit, so for one to have impact in the spirit they have to have a source they draw power from. It’s impossible to have an impact in the spirit without the backing of any spiritual force. Every one on earth functions from the spirit and the only way to have access to the right power source is through Jesus.
Let’s revisit everything that I have said. 1. The spiritual realm governs or has a direct influence on the natural realm. 2. What happens in the spirit affects things naturally and no matter how much one is skilled physically, they cannot stand against someone with a strong spiritual backing. 3. There are two sources of power in the spirit, Godly power and demonic power. 4. For you to be connected to the right source of power you need to be saved. 5. Every person on earth is either connected to Godly or demonic power in the spirit realm because the source of all natural activities and life is the spirit realm.
Join me again for part two as I show you how you can have impact in the spirit realm.
God bless you.
