Believe it or not, supernatural events are happening all the time. In fact we live in a naturally, “supernatural” world. Want to learn about a few naturally, supernatural events from the the bible and history ? Well, check this out.
So, you ask, what are supernatural events and what is the purpose? First, let’s look at the word “supernatural.” Supernatural refers to happenings or actions. A force not subject to natural laws. Therefore, supernatural events are unexplained acts of God. God’s ways and thinking are way above ours. With or without human intervention. Think about it! They can not be explained by human or scientific knowledge. The purposes for supernatural events is four-fold.
- Confirms that we are Godsent
- To prove that Jesus was the Son of God.
- To bring glory to God.
There are three kinds of supernatural events. Miracles, signs and wonders are supernatural and are designed by God for man’s well-being. Miracles happened during the Azusa Street Revival. William Seymour, a Pentecostal preacher, who was born to former slaves in Centerville, Louisiana. Reverend Seymour was one of the preachers that God used for His glory. He found an old abandoned, African Methodist Episcopal church on Azusa Street. It had recently been used as a warehouse and stable. People began speaking in “tongues. “There were testimonies of growth and appearances of new body parts within seconds. At the same time, miracles in deliverance were common in the meetings too.
Many events, considered supernatural, are used by God to get man’s attention. As this was witnessed and experienced during the Azusa Street meeting. People thought they saw a building on fire from a distance. Neighbors contacted the local fire department. To put it another way, there was no smell or fire. The only fire burning was the “fire of the Holy Ghost.”
Supernatural events or “wonders” are “God’s surprises.” Wonders do just that. They make you wonder or surprise you. According to Tommy Welchel, the shekinah glory of God appeared in a Yukon, Oklahoma church meeting. Here’s what happened. First, an orange-colored substance filled the sanctuary. Second, all of a sudden, spontaneous holy laughter filled the place. God’s laughing gas was in the building. The Pastor of the youth ministry was laughing in the spirit too!

Fortunately, thousands of years before Azusa, supernatural events happened. It was during the times of the Old and New Testament in the bible. The more we pray, the better the relationship we have with our Lord. Not to mention, God uses His anointed people, who are called to ministry, to show Himself to be mighty! The book of Acts if full of them. In fact, there is nothing too hard for the Lord.
Notably, over one hundred supernatural happenings were recorded that occurred in the Old Testament. The first was “God’s miracle of creation.” Biblical events took place during the wilderness ministry of Moses. And more miracles were worked through the prophets, Elijah and Elisha. The supernatural is nothing new. As a matter of fact, people all over the world have seen or experienced great healings, deliverance, wonders, signs and miracles. The Lazarus movie will give you a taste of just one instance of a Pastor coming back to life at a Rinehard Bonnke crusade.
