Fascinated by God – or fascinated by the Supernatural?

God-seekers around the world need to answer a soul-searching question: “Are you fascinated by God, or are you fascinated by the supernatural?”

Jesus was extremely confrontational when he addressed the false quest for the supernatural in people´s lives.

In His Sermon on the Mount He said:

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’” (Matthew 7:21-23)

The rich young man who sought eternal life was brushed off by Jesus who commanded him to sell his belongings and give to the poor. The response was disheartening:

“But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions” (Matthew 19:22).

In our modern Christendom we seem to encourage “the quest” of any faith or power, regardless of the source or object of the spiritual journey.

Jesus was adamantly clear: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6).

Don´t be so impressed with miracles, prophecies, angelic visitations, healings, signs and wonders.

Be fascinated with the Triune God. Jesus is the only Way to Him!
