As vessels of God’s Presence we carry what is known as self authenticating evidence. This type of evidence is defined as evidence that “ is so trustworthy that it doesn’t require a witness. These forms of evidence are inherently reliable, and are deemed to be “self-authenticating.” Healing, miracles, walking on water, quieting storms multiplying food and raising the dead are evidence that would fall into this category.
As we learn to move in this realm we must be very careful because these events can make us and the people around us react in unpredictable ways. From the perspective of the believer being used of God, the production of such evidence is all about the condition of ones heart as it relates to God. Will that heart remain humble and give thanks for the opportunity to witness such evidence or will it become prideful and take credit as the source or channel for God’s evidence. I have come to define humility as having the correct understanding of who God can be in and through us. Jesus said:
John 5:30 I can of Myself do nothing. …
John 14:10 …but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.
Luke 6:40 A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone who is perfectly trained will be like his teacher.
The best that is humanly possible is to live like Jesus by becoming a vessel or a channel in this earth realm that allows God’s Spirit to freely operate. Since God is infinite, that means He can manifest in 8 billion different ways which is a way through each and every human on this planet. Inside each of us is the reality of God’s Kingdom. But not until we have been awakened and remain conscious of this reality can we exercise our free will to allow God to freely work through us. This is the difference between the spiritually minded and the materially minded.
Jesus was credited with restoring sight to a person who was blind from birth. That is simply self (God) authentication in action. The same Spirit that is in Jesus also resides in us. If only we can catch this vision and let go of our training as sons of and daughters of Adam, we could begin to operate like Jesus as children of God.
The first step is for us to believe that what Luke 6:40 is implying is possible in our life. Then the next step is to become immersed in the red letters of the bible. My suggestion is to take a year or two and read only those verses over and over again. Then begin to contemplate and imagine yourself in the role of Jesus walking in the earth realm. Set you religion aside and begin to view your relationship with God and the people of earth just as if you were Jesus.
It is my encouragement that we are able to contact God who lives inside of us and then develop the relationship to a point where God is literally revealing Himself as us. Even though I am not there yet one day I want to be able to say like Jesus “if you see me you see the Father”. I hope people become confused and they say “isn’t that the IT geek that is in the cube down the hall? How did he heal you? Where is he?”
We humans were born for so much more that we understand or can imagine. So let us, let go and let God live through us.
John 9:1-12 Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. 2 And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”
3 Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him.4 I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”
6 When He had said these things, He spat on the ground and made clay with the saliva; and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay. 7 And He said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which is translated, Sent). So he went and washed, and came back seeing.
8 Therefore the neighbors and those who previously had seen that he was blind said, “Is not this he who sat and begged?”
9 Some said, “This is he.” Others said, “He is like him.”
He said, “I am he.”
10 Therefore they said to him, “How were your eyes opened?”
11 He answered and said, “A Man called Jesus made clay and anointed my eyes and said to me, ‘Go to the pool of Siloam and wash.’ So I went and washed, and I received sight.”
12 Then they said to him, “Where is He?”
He said, “I do not know.”
