Hallelujah. She left a believer. She had an experience and this is what’s missing in the church today. The experience with an almighty God and God wants to use you in that same way. That there’s people in your office. There’s people in the mall. There’s people wherever you go. God wants to reveal to you, by His Spirit, words of wisdom, words of knowledge, discerning of spirits and operate with supernatural power of miracles, and faith beyond your own, and gifts of healing. We’ll get into all that. But God wants to work through you to demonstrate why, to change people’s beliefs. People are stuck in a rut, believing what they’ve learned because of the culture, because of the religious system that they’ve been part of. And because the power of God has been so void in the church, we see more people today buying Harry Potter books than we do Bibles. Why is that? There’s something on the inside of people that wants the reality of a miracle working God. How are they going to get it? Through you. They’re not going to come to most churches. They’re not going to come to my meetings or other people’s meetings, but they do come to work. They go to the market. So what’s going to happen in this great revival we get a chance to be a part of, is we get to take the gifts of the Spirit with us, where people live, where they shop, where they work, and just… Hallelujah. I get so excited on this and I’ve got to keep moving through these slides or we’ll never get through this presentation. Number one again, what is God’s will? Well, He wants you to have life and have it more abundant. Amen. Next, He wants you to reign in life, hallelujah. We can see this in the scripture, in Romans 5:17. It say, “For if by the transgression of one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive of the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness shall reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.” Hallelujah. When I went to Bible school, as great as all the teachings were that we had in Bible school, on faith and healing, all the teaching that came to me, the greatest teaching I had was understanding righteousness. Understanding who I am in Christ, the Messiah. And righteousness simply defined is the ability to stand in the presence of an almighty God as if sin never existed. And that’s what you have because you accepted Christ. Because you’ve accepted God into your life, you have received the gift of righteousness. You are… You can’t get more. It’s like a woman who gets pregnant, not that I would know, but my wife, I know, but when she got pregnant we only knew it by a test, a test tube type test. Yeah, she’s pregnant. There was no showing of it, but she was. But over the course of months, by the time she got to six months pregnant, everyone knew, or seven months, everyone knew she was pregnant.
SID: When I ask them my first question you are going to find out why so many of the promises of God that you’ve been begging God to answer haven’t been answered. And Jennifer, you gave me the key, and of course it’s in the Bible, but you gave me the key from science. Science has proven we have two brains. Explain that.
JENNIFER: Well in 1999, a gastroenterologist discovered that we have a second nervous system that he called a second brain, and where this is located is in the gut. It’s neurons that are in sheaths that line our entire intestinal, our stomach, our esophagus, our bowels, and this is our emotional processor, our gut. We have a thinking brain and we have an emotional brain and our emotional brain tells our thinking brain how we feel.
SID: Dennis, you told me it is possible to live in the Spirit 24/7. You told me it’s possible to develop your spirit to such a point that you have discernment whether someone is telling the truth or not. Tell me how that works with you.
DENNIS: In every case, from the very inception is a baby Christian. When I would be communing with God, and I just love being in his presence, and I would see a face flash before my mind and I would lose that peace. And the Lord spoke to me and he said, “Don’t let anything come between what you and I have together.” So I learned just as a principle of not having anything between us, and so any negative emotion, whether it was anger toward a foreman at work or what have you, was coming between me and my Jesus. So I learned at an early place to just release forgiveness and the ugly emotion would go, but I could still picture that foreman without the poison. And I saw that forgiveness has to flow, we know it’s Matthew 18, but forgiveness has to flow from the heart. And when forgiveness flows from the heart the internal evidence is peace. And from the place of peace you discern everything going around you, good or bad.
SID: You know what, studio audience, I don’t know about you, I’m experiencing that peace as he’s talking. Are some of you catching that? How would you say emotional health is so linked to physical health? I mean, I said the statistic by CDC.
DENNIS: We saw it primarily when we spent a number of years traveling church to church. We would see people who were dealing with just really repenting and releasing forgiveness to mothers, fathers, issues of life, and they were pleasantly surprised by physical healings that they weren’t even pursuing at that point in time. And I said, there’s the connection between the emotional freedom and health in general, yes, but we saw the manifestation of actual physical healing. The one that really amazed me was a person, a young man received forgiveness for his father. He said he always tried to forgive his father for years. He was sincere, but doing it from his head. When I taught him how to release it from his heart, he just sobbed and released it. Peace was in evidence after the forgiveness and he was instantly healed of color blindness. Now even Jennifer said with all her counselor training, no one would have linked that. If God knit us together in our mother’s womb, I trust him to see where the tangles are because they’re beyond our training.
SID: Jennifer, how does this work with marriage?
JENNIFER: One of the most wonderful stories is a couple who got divorced, worked through the 60-day challenge individually. After their issues were dealt with they were able to fall back in love and remarried.
SID: I’d say that is supernatural. Now if it’s okay with you, only if you’re interested, when we come back, can I have them equip you how to have that supernatural toxic emotion be set free? I mean, you can do this lifetime of garbage, get rid of in less than two months and then you become your normal, normal as defined by the Bible, [self]. Be right back.
Well, the first few sessions again, we’re going to be digging in; kind of a line upon line, looking at the…kind of the background of the operation of the supernatural. Helping to understand some basic principles. that as we get into the gifts of Spirit, it’s going to be far, I believe, more valuable to be able to make it applicable to your daily walk in the Spirit, your walk in the supernatural. One of the things that I’ve recognized particularly as I’ve studied the miracles and… My study for 35 years has really been focused on what God told me, literally, in February 1979. To know how to do what Jesus did. A couple years ago, God kind of dropped a neat cliché in my heart and as I’ve been teaching on this for 35 years. How did Jesus do what Jesus did? Amen. Well, something God said to me, “Well if you wanted to do what Jesus did, then do what Jesus did”. Did you get that? If you wanted to do what Jesus did, then do what Jesus did. Jesus had a life of prayer, fasting and self-denial. Now as much as I’m teaching you here and we’ll be getting more and more into the operation of the miracles, the signs and the wonders; again, the operation of the gifts of the Spirit. It’s very very important that you understand the nature of God; the character of God. Because what’s happened in years gone by is many revivals have gone amuck because people got weird. They got outside of sound Biblical teaching. So it’s very important that you develop a base line with the fruit of the Spirit. And I know, you know, the fruit of the Spirit isn’t nearly as exciting per se as the gifts of the Spirit. But it’s through the study of the fruit you get the nature of God, the character of God, the ways of God. So that when you’re operating in the supernatural, you’re going to be balanced. And you’re not going to get outside of the plan of God and the ways of God. I heard someone say one time, “If you get to much Word, you’re going to dry up. If you get to much Spirit, you’re going to blow up. But if you get a balance, you’re going to grow up”. Hallelujah. So, in studying here, the operation of the supernatural, again, we want to get the base line and understand the principles of the will of God, the heart of God, the nature of God. So we can apply the power of God. Amen. And I used to teach because this is what I was taught. In teaching on the gifts of the Spirit, as an example, when I taught miracles, I mean just seven or eight years ago; my definition of miracles was different than it is today because God’s given me greater revelation in the last seven years as I’ve studied different elements of quantum physics and how things work. And I recognize something.
