Excerpts from my new book “The Zoe Life.”
Jesus is the ZOE; everything He did on earth was a manifestation of the ZOE. He boldly asserted this of Himself ―
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me,” 2 John 14:6 KJV.
Oneness with Jesus brings us into the oneness with His LIFE – the ZOE. His mission on earth then and now is an infusion of the ZOE – the highest form of Life into man; the GOD KIND OF LIFE!
Every miracle performed was from the ZOE. The Zoe has a powerful perspective of CREATIVITY. It is the possibility factor in every impossible situation.
Five loaves of bread and two fishes were brought to Him and a simple offer of prayer multiplied it to feed 5,000 men, woman and children not inclusive, and yet had a whooping left over of twelve baskets full.
Right from the Old Testament, the people were enjoying certain manifestations of the Zoe without even knowing what it was. When the children of Israel were in the wilderness, the Bible clearly stated that their garments were not worn out nor did their shoes.
“I have led you forty years in the wilderness; your clothes have not worn out upon you, and your sandals have not worn off your feet,” Deuteronomy 29:5-6 AMP.
Everything seemed to grow as the people were growing. What could have been responsible for this? – THE ZOE!
They were enjoying the CREATIVE POWER of the Zoe Life. Their garments and shoes grew along with them and for the number of years in the wilderness, their garments were supernaturally renewed.
They were given bread from heaven, supernatural bread and as they were eating of THAT BREAD, they were enjoined to supernatural living.
“Man did eat angels’ food: he sent them meat to the full,” Psalm 78:25.
Eating this bread brought them unconsciously into conformity with the supernatural manifestation but their hearts were not right with the LORD because the Zoe was not yet fully given, neither was the Zoe living in them.
They only had a foretaste of that which is to come. When Elijah raised the dead, it was the Zoe that created life back into a lifeless body; same goes on with every manifestations of the LORD in their times.
Joshua commanded the Sun not to go down and the moon to go down the valley of Aijalon and it was so. Isaiah commanded the sun to go down ten degrees according to the Word of the LORD and it was so.
The Zoe was always at work and this is because God always wanted His people to have the Zoe in them in order for them to live in the original Natural world He created us to live in.
The fall of Adam created another world which we now know as the “natural” Adam lived the “supernatural” naturally; that was the only World God wanted man to live in!
The fall of man separated the “super” away from the natural. Hence anytime there is an intervention of the LORD on our world, we often call it “supernatural.” How strange it is today that we are often taken aghast at certain manifestations of the presence of the LORD.
The believer in Jesus has that same spirit in Him that worked mightily in Jesus’ earthly ministry therefore we can replicate the Jesus ministry in our time..!
