Why Revelation in the Invisible Realm Manifests in the Physical Realm

by | Mar 14, 2019 | Supernatural & Dreams

We can say that there are two types of revelation: 1) general revelation, which includes everything God has communicated about Himself, to every person, at all times, everywhere, and 2) special revelation, which is made up of God’s communications to certain individuals at specific times.

Revelation discloses a portion of the mind of God in the now. Manifestation is the tangible and visible proof of that revelation. Revelation and manifestation are interdependent, meaning there is no revelation without spiritual manifestation, and vice versa. To operate on the earth as Jesus did, we must have both.

The spiritual reality you experience in the invisible realm must manifest itself in the physical realm and impact the natural world.

From Supernatural to Physical

In saying that revelation is the requirement for demonstrating the power of God, I emphasize that mere information and fallen knowledge do not transform people. The things that fail to produce revelation do not allow change in the individual because the power of the Holy Spirit does not manifest inside the person. However, as we will see, every invisible truth can manifest from the supernatural to the physical and reach our five physical senses through revelation.

Most of the supernatural manifestations we have seen in the church up to now are the result of God’s sovereignty, and not because we have received the revelation to demonstrate that power. I believe that as long as the church lacks revelation, we will not see the demonstrations of the Spirit or the true power of God that are available to us. We need revelation of the biblical knowledge we have gained, of the logos Word and the theology we know. This is why the Holy Spirit was sent to us—to reveal those truths and bring visible manifestations of the power of God to the earth.

Revelation of the Word is the place where the Holy Spirit manifests supernatural demonstrations of power.

Have You Let God Use You?

We need to truly understand that what sets apart the believers who manifest the power of God from those who don’t is revelation. Many people embrace supernatural truths such as revival, anointing, the miracles of the Holy Spirit, deliverance and the gifts, but they don’t manifest them because they don’t know how. Our generation is desperate not only to hear a message, but also to see the power of God demonstrated. When a church makes excuses for not manifesting His power, it gives birth to believers who have a passive faith. That is why there are so many children of God today who compromise the truth and are more concerned about pleasing people than about knowing Him through the manifestations of His Holy Spirit. My question is, have you let God use you to demonstrate His power—to make a blind person see or a deaf person hear?

The following are some ways in which revelation leads to manifestation:

  • Revelation loosens spiritual activity. A person’s level of revelation can be measured by the spiritual activity they manifest. This is known as the “mantle of revelation,” which God gives to every one of His ministers. When someone carries revelation, they provoke spiritual activity that manifests the presence of God to others. The enemy knows if you are carrying revelation, and he will attack you, sometimes even physically, to stop the growth of that revelation and its manifestation.
  • Revelation stimulates your thoughts. When a child of God carries revelation of the Holy Spirit, this is manifested in an increase of their mental abilities.
  • Revelation transforms people. If you are not being transformed, it is because you are receiving only information and not revelation.
  • Revelation accelerates the growth of the people of God. Revelation produces so much acceleration in the natural that it activates us to walk in the supernatural. It takes us back to our original state as human beings, when God brought Adam to life with the breath of His Spirit. Every time revelation comes into our lives by the impartation of the Holy Spirit, acceleration will manifest in every area of our being.

Operate in God’s Power!

Jesus promised His disciples a higher level of knowledge and power when He said to them, “But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven” (Luke 24:49b, NLT). The New King James Version reads, “… until you are endued with power from on high.” In Greek, the word for “fills” or “endued” is enduo, which also means to be “clothed” with power, including abilities and knowledge.

On the day of Pentecost, God imparted to Jesus’s followers not only His power but also His revelation, because He does not allow His power to function with merely carnal or natural information. God’s power is for those who want to be witnesses of Jesus, and His knowledge enables us to know how to operate in that power. “And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs” (Mark 16:20). {eoa}
