"The Scripture says that 'the violent take it by force' and there are some things that can only be taken possession of by courageous warriors. And then there is a higher level of access to the kingdom. And in Mark 10 he says, 'Unless you receive the kingdom as a child you can't enter it at all.' And some things are reserved for soldiers, but some things are so precious, that they are reserved for sons. The Lord wants to know authority - the authority of taking it by force, but He wants us to know inheritance what it is to receive because of what someone else has done..."

"The miracle realm is man’s natural realm. He is by creation the companion of the miracle-working God. Sin dethroned man from the miracle-working realm, but through grace, he is coming into his own. It has been hard for us to grasp the principles of this life of faith. In the beginning, man’s spirit was the dominant force in the world. When he sinned, his mind became dominant. Sin dethroned the spirit and crowned the intellect. But grace is restoring the spirit to its place of dominion. When man comes to realize this, he will live in the realm of the supernatural without effort. No longer will faith be a struggle, but a normal living in the realm of God. The spiritual realm places man where communion with God is a normal experience. Miracles are then his native breath." - John G. Lake
