*Topic: Bringing the supernatural blessing into physical manifestation Part 1*
By: Isaac Oluwaseun Agbenla
*Bible Text: Ephesians 1:3*
*Blessed be the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places.*
The question of many of us is why is it that some promises in the bible seems NOT to be working for us or coming to fulfillment in our lives. *The text says, God has blessed us already with ALL not some of the spiritual blessings but then we still see sufferings, poverty, lack, sickness and diseases in the world and even among God’s elect*.
This was the question that came to my mind since the first time I studied this verse. I asked myself but the bible says we are already blessed, how come we are not all enjoying the blessings? Can the bible make mistake? No. Because I am an addicted and incurable believer of what the bible says either it make sense at the moment or not.
*Notice the word BLESSED. It is done already*. What then is wrong with my faith that has not produced this blessing?
It is important to first note that the Bible says *the blessings are in the heavenly places. It has to be brought to the physical realm*. God answers all prayers but answers to many are there in the heavenly realms hanging.
*We have more than one heavens. We have minimum of three heavens*.
In Genesis 2:1, the bible says *Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.* It shows the plurality of heavens. The word heavens is used in *133 times and in 127 verses in the Bible.
Also, *apostle Paul talk about third heavens in 2 Cor. 12:2*. The third heavens I believe is the heaven where God dwells i.e the heaven of heavens, the second is where the angels dwells both good and bad i.e the rulers of darkness of this world(Eph.6:12) and the first heaven is the atmospheric heaven we are seeing above us.
In Dan. 10, we saw vivid example of what it means to have blessings hanging in the spiritual realm without physical manifestations. Daniel had prayed and fasted *(didn’t stay away from all food but pleasant bread*) for 21days.
He prayed the first day and the Lord heard him and sent an angel to deliver the answer but the angel was held down by the prince of Persian who is the ruler of the darkness over the kingdom of Persia.
You see, I learnt from Demonology teachings that every kingdom has rulers over them in the spiritual realm- even Nigeria leaders are ruled by a power, *it is either by God through Jesus or devil*. If the kingdom is surrender to God, God rules but if not, the ruler of darkness over that kingdom in the second heaven rules over such kingdom.
Notice in Daniel 10 that there is king of Persia on earth in charge of the earthly Persia and there is Prince of Persia that stopped Daniel, that Prince of Persia was ruling over the kingdom of Persia from the heavenly places. There is both physical and spiritual ruler in every land.
*You see, whatever the king of Persia is doing on earth is controlled by the Prince of Persian in the heavenlies.*
There was a physical king in Persia during the time of Daniel but the bible told us also that the angel was intercepted by the Prince of Persia who was the ruler over that kingdom in the heavenlies . (Eph.6:12).
*You see, only heaven knows the number of prayer points we alleged God that he didn’t answer whereas we are the one who fails to wait in the place of prayer until the delivery come to manifestation.*
*God is a faithful and a prayer answering God and not a prayer storing God*. What you pray for is already in the spiritual realm, it will take faith, persistence, right and positive thinking to deliver it in the physical.
Mind you, spiritual blessings mentioned there includes health, prosperity, fruitfulness, joy ,peace and long life among many. There is nothing you desire and pray for according to His will that is not available.
One of the laws that determines the release of your blessing is *until you believe that you have them, you can’t see them*
*In Mark 11:24* the Bible says:
*“Therefore I say unto you, what things whatsoever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them”*.
If you can’t see your health before you receive your healing ,then you can’t receive divine healing. You don’t have to see with your physical eyes but the spiritual one. You have to first believe God through faith. Many believe their physician than creator of physicians. Many believe in drugs than they believe in the word. Taking drug is not bad but having trust in God’s creation than in Him who is the creator is the big challenge. This is what is called the faith factor. *Faith is believing the invisible after prayer*. You may not feel as if you are healed when you need to believe. Your healing is not base on feelings but on what the word says.
*You have to hold firm to what you believe the word says even if all evidences shows you are not healed.*
You may still see the wound in your leg after the prayer, it doesn’t mean you have not received the answer to your prayer, it only means you are waiting for the delivery.
*A pregnant woman is surely carrying a child not because we have seeing the child but because we believe without doubt that the child is there.* Somebody says but we can see the pregnancy as an evidence. Yes, the word of God is also your evidence that you are healed (1 Peter 2:24).
*Heb.11:1 says faith is the substance….. evidence of things not yet seen*. You haven’t seen it yet you have evidence for it. Where is your evidence? the bible (1 Peter 2:24) .
*Somebody will say but it will look stupid to people, yes, spiritual things are not reasonable to a natural man- 1Cor.2:14*. People can’t see it for you except they are on the same or higher spiritual pedestal to you. It is not what people say but what the word says. You either believe people or you believe God and His unwavering word.
