  2. Alignment with Gods purpose and programmed and multitude: this is where a person comes to god and say “i agree with you that your vision for growth will come to pass with me; Amos 3:3

  1. it is the manifestation of the supernatural for the meeting of practical needs: people wants signs, wonders, miracles and healings.

They are looking for a touch of god Matthew 12:15, 14:14, 15:30,19:1-2, Luke 5:15


  1. The announcement of the acts of God: as the supernatural happens, let it not happen quietly, Isa. 27:13, 25:26.let it be noised’ psalm 105:1-2, everybody is looking for a ‘come and see’ evidence. Multitudes will come to where there is news of god’s moves.

We must come to the point where people are panting after what they are teaching


  1. Solid welfare and care of the flock: Jesus was not feeding the five thousand to show power in Matthew 15:32 he displayed a heart for the people who had been with him for 3 days. When the church growth and expansion happened, in acts 6:1-17, they choose people to care for widows and expansion happened in acts 6:1-17
