How to Share God’s Supernatural Love in a Natural Way – Like Jesus Did
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing!” Isaiah 43:18–19a NIV.
We are living in an amazing time! The first miracle of Jesus was changing water to wine and He saved the best wine for last.
If you are ready for something new, then fasten your seat-belt!
God is revealing new ways of doing things that will make us much more effective than we have ever been in the past.
Nearly 16 years ago, God said to me, “I AM doing a new thing. Do you want to be part of it?”
I was really excited and agreed before I even knew what it was.
God then said He wanted to send me on a special assignment, but first I needed to look up all the encounters that Jesus had with nonreligious people.
Once I did this, I was shocked at what I found.
Jesus was never judgmental or mean towards people outside of the “church” of His day.
He did not have much patience for the angry religious people lacking hearts of love, but He was extremely compassionate to the people on the streets.
“All spoke well of him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his lips,” Luke 4:22a NIV.
Most people talk about the miracles Jesus performed. But He also was known for His love, gracious words and supernatural abilities.
In my studies, I discovered that He often used the prophetic gifts to speak deep into people’s hearts.
This was the assignment the LORD gave me and I became one of the forerunners of using prophecy and dream interpretation as a means for reaching people with God’s love.
“Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone,” Colossians 4:6 NIV.
Over the past 15 years, I have given tens of thousands of prophetic words, interpreted over 30,000 dreams and even prophesied over people’s tattoos.
We found that people are really open to talking more about God, especially when we use language they can relate to.
Like Jesus, we speak gracious words and use the prophetic gifts to lower the walls that people have put up to God.
What began as an assignment from God has now become a lifestyle of using the prophetic gifts in a new way.
Today, people often say things like, “I’m spiritual, but I’m not religious,” or “What’s true for you is not truth for me.”
And they often have walls up when we try to talk with them about God. But there are things we can do to remove the walls.
- Do something positive for them, such as a practical act of kindness.
- Give them food, money or something they need.
- Give them simple, encouraging words — which is prophecy spoken in nonreligious language. It is very powerful to give people prophetic words in a language they can understand.
- Interpret their dreams and prophesy over their body art.
- And, yes, you can pray for their healing as well.
When we use this strategy, most people ask us, “Who are you?”
We tell them, “We are Christians, but we might not be like any Christian you have ever met.
We are part of an underground movement known as Christians who love.
We are not organized, but all you have to do is look around and you will find one of us somewhere.”
I have never been more encouraged in my entire life.
We are sitting on one of the biggest revivals in history and it will come when we step out like Jesus, using gracious words and the language of prophecy and dreams to speak deep into people’s lives.
