The Supernatural Will Become The Norm – A Word by Demontae Edmonds

Two days ago when I awoke the Lord spoke to me “There will come a time and season the supernatural will become the norm within the Church.” As I laid in the bed the Lord reminded me of several unusual supernatural events that took place within my life and ministry. Some of the things I have experienced with God I rarely ever share for several reasons. Firstly, one does not want to appear to be boasting. Secondly, certain encounters with God are very precious like pearls of great value that are not to be cast or shared loosely. I believe sharing certain precious things outside of the timing or will of God can lessen the experience and lessen our intimacy with God. We must be good stewards of revelation but also supernatural encounters with God. Thirdly, I rarely share some of these accounts because when I think back on them it is DIFFICULT FOR ME TO BELIEVE MYSELF THESE THINGS ACTUALLY HAPPENED.
Oftentimes, when many hear the word “supernatural” we think of only the gifts of the Holy Spirit (examples prophecy, word of knowledge, gifts of healings, etc.), healings, or deliverance only. I would like to share three personal accounts that will help stir up your faith for a greater personal experience with God. Even as I begin to type out these moments I’m provoked to jealousy personally to pursue God greater. God’s desire is that the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ at large comes into a deeper experience in the revelation and manifestation of the knowledge, ways and workings of God.
HE THOUGHT IT WAS AN ANGEL
One night I was in prayer in my home around 11pm. I didn’t feel any particular anointing, burden, or stirring during prayer. I began to pray for a friend who had been involved in a physical accident and it was compounded when he fell on ice. Dr. Joe Martin, a powerful man of God who had traveled with TL Osborne and experienced great miracles in 30 nations within his own ministry had informed me earlier that day the excruciating pain he was experiencing from this fall. In particular his ribs had been broken while returning from a fishing trip in Norway.
As I begin to ask God to heal Dr. Martin what happened next I had no inkling what was happening or what would happen. I began to feel as if my body was vibrating. It was as if I was sitting on something that was also vibrating and moving! The closest comparison in the natural world would be the sensation one feels in a massage chair. Suddenly, and without notice I was standing beside Dr. Martin’s bed in Norway. I touched his side and commanded the pain to leave in Jesus name. Instantly, I was back on my couch. It happened in the proverbial “twinkling of the eye!”
The occurrence happened so fast that it took me a while to process what had just happened. I went to bed excited to share this experience with my wife and also to contact Dr. Martin the next day. The next day I contacted Dr. Martin and I asked the question. “How do your ribs feel today?” He responded “I feel great the pain has left me”. My next question was, “Did you sense someone standing by your bed last night?” He replied, “I sensed and heard an angel standing over me praying”. I said, “IT WAS NOT AN ANGEL IT WAS ME!”
Dr. Martin was no stranger to the miraculous or supernatural. He himself had been used in peculiar and unusual ways during his 35+ years in ministry. Also, he knew there was no way in the natural realm that I could know the exact time and circumstances of “someone” standing by his bed praying for his side. We both rejoiced in the fact that God had answered both of our intercession for his healing. Glory to Jesus!
This type of supernatural occurrence may seem strange or unusual but the Word of God makes known that these types of accounts are not far fetched. In 1 Kings we read of the Prophet Elijah’s run in with Obadiah who was a servant of King Ahab. Elijah had been a fugitive with a bounty placed on his head by King Ahab. He meets Obadiah and informs him to go back and tell King Ahab the location of Elijah. Obadiah fears to do so. It was apparently not uncommon for Elijah to escape captivity and arrest by being supernaturally taken away by the Spirit of God.
1 Kings 18: 11-12, “And now thou sayest, Go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here. And it shall come to pass, as soon as I am gone from thee, that the Spirit of the Lord shall carry thee whither I know not; and so when I come and tell Ahab; and he cannot find thee, he shall slay me”.
Obadiah knew it was not impossible nor uncommon for Elijah to experience this type of supernatural manifestation of being teleported or carried away from one location to another.
LIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TUNNEL
In 2006, I was driving from Virginia Beach to Hampton, VA. I cannot recall my particular destination that day but I do remember during that season I would often pray fervently in my vehicle. As I prayed with more intensity I felt the nearness of God increase. Suddenly, it was as if my vision went all white. I thought I was having issues with my eyes or vision but flashes of white would feel my sight. This occurrence intensified until I could barely see the road that I was driving on. I realized IT WAS THE GLORY OF GOD.
I became fearful because I could now barely see out of my car window. The blinding white light of God’s glory was flashing in my vision. A spirit was eager to keep praying to see what would happen next if I tapped in but my soul was fearful of crashing. “How could I drive and not crash if the Shekinah glory fully consumed my vision?”
I stopped praying and managed to grab my phone on my seat and call the last phone number that I had dialed. My good friend Pastor Richard T Maples picked up the phone. I was frantically asking him to pray for me! “The Glory of God has filled my car and I’m driving through the tunnel. I don’t know if God is about to take me but I don’t want to crash. PRAY!” Richard who is a great seer himself began to intercede and pray for wisdom and revelation. He prayed until I made it through the Monitor-Merrimac Tunnel.
Although the awe of this experience and the intense feeling of being filled with the presence of God stayed with me the remainder of the day I always wondered what would have happened if I had not yielded to fear. Nevertheless, God again revealed himself and his ability to manifest Himself at any place and any time. When we are hungry for God he will be faithful to fill us with his Holy Spirit.
Matthew 5:6, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness: they shall be filled.”
A SUPERNATURAL SIGHT & SOUND SHOW
It was 2008 and I was very hungry for the Lord. In addition, I lived alone and was not yet married or a parent. This afforded me a lot of quiet time with God. I would pray in a little chair beside my bed before going to bed. One particular night after a time of worship and prayer the Lord spoke to me, “Go into your front room, lay on the couch, and play “Jason Upton”. At that time Jason Upton was one of my favorite worship artists and his music really connected with my spirit.
I obeyed God’s voice not expecting anything great or unusual. I thought God was going to use this moment to relax my mind as I had many financial and external obstacles at the time. I laid on the couch, lifted my arms and played “Glory Come Down” by Jason Upton. God gave me that night an amazing intimate moment! It’s still unbelievable and indescribable what I’m about to share with the readers.
As I lifted my arms and focused on the Lord the presence of God enveloped me. When the lyrics played “Let Your glory and honor. Fall on our face. Holy Father.
Rest in this place
“Let the fire fall. Let the wind blow. Let the glory come down.” Each time the words would play “let the fire fall”, I would feel the awesome sensation of burning or the fire of the Holy Spirit coursing through my body. Each time “let the wind blow” would be song, I would feel a literal small wind blowing in my living room. It was the wind of the Holy Spirit. In Acts 2, the disciples heard “the sound of a mighty rushing wind”. I didn’t feel the sound of wind but certainly felt its presence.
Lastly, as the words would play “let the glory come down”. I would feel the weight of God’s glory descend upon me almost pressing me. This cycle of events happened several times until the song ended. I laid basking in the presence of God awed by this spectacular spiritual concert of sorts God put on for me to reveal Himself in a deeper way in a response to my cry for intimacy with Him. I left this encounter more impressed with and in love with the Lord Jesus. Also, the discouragement I was dealing with in that season lifted from my life.
A QUICK LESSON
I have told what follows only a handful of times to a select few individuals.My wife is the only person before this writing that I have shared the entire account with. In each instance I never shared the particular musical artist or song. Oftentimes with experiences like these people will read them and try to reinvent the same encounter or build a “monument”. I tried myself to repeat this moment and nothing spectacular happened.
Matthew 17:4, “And Peter answering said to Jesus, “Lord it is good for us to be here. If You wish, I will make here three tabernacles: one for You; and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”
The principle of this supernatural story is more important than the details themselves. I had decided to live a holy life and pursue Jesus above all (even ministry). I believe this moment was God’s response to my earnest pursuit of him. During the time of Jesus’ transfiguration Peter tried to build a monument to Jesus’ encounter with God the Father, Moses, and Elijah overlooking the greater importance of the visitation. These types of moments have to be God-inspired and God will personally orchestrate the when, the where, and the how of He reveals his glory to individuals.
Wind, Fire, and an Earthquake
Elijah when he was on the run for his life from the Queen Jezebel was in desperate need for God to speak to him and strengthen him. He went upon a mountain to seek the Lord.
1 Kings 19:11-13, “And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake. And after the earthquake a fire: but the Lord was not in the fire; and after that a still small voice.”
God also performed a supernatural sight, sound, and literal earth shaking moment for Elijah to grab his attention. I believe He did not desire Elijah or us to be dependent upon such grand experiences but be familiar with his “still small voice.” Although, there is a normalcy coming to the supernatural we must all have an intimate knowledge and relationship with the leading and voice of the Holy Spirit that will help us to navigate day to day affairs.
7 Keys to the Supernatural Being Normal
These are not the only keys but these are 7 foundational principles that I believe increase the potential for God to move supernatural in an individual’s life.
1- Keep Jesus first and center
2- Pursue holiness and pure living
Hebrews 12:14, “Pursue peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.”
3- Don’t follow or worship “Signs” – worship the one that “signs” point to (Jesus)
4- Be quick to repent for wrongdoing, wrong thoughts, or unBiblical actions
5- Obey the voice of God
6- Keep your faith in God. Don’t allow the enemy to bring bitterness or unforgiveness into your heart.
7- Stay humble
PRAYER

Father God we ask that you fulfill your promise of the Latter House being greater than the former house. We ask that the Lord Jesus and your Word be made known in the hearts of men through supernatural encounters, deeds, and acts. In Jesus’ name we pray that the stories we read in the Bible that are supernatural would not be just fairy tales for us but divine accounts that would inspire us to live and walk as a Supernatural Church.
