What is Epikaizo and how can a christian experience it?
What is Epikaizo?
Epikaizo (overshadow) is a Hebrew word used in the Bible to talk of the highest manifestation of God’s power. This is when God’s presence overwhelms (overshadows, overtakes) man and causes the physical faculties of man to lose their earthly essence and take upon the form of the Spirit.
Epikaizo occurs when the natural is quickened by the concentration of God’s power to materialize into the supernatural.
Moses experienced the Epikaizo when he spent 40 days 40 nights on the mount.
What can I do to experience Epikaizo?
The key to Epikaizo is Revelation – Go for the Word!
1 Peter 1:13
‘‘Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;’’
King James Version
Whether you are meditating more in His word, studying to know Him more personally, praying in other tongues, associating with those in the Epikaizo experience, confessing the promises of God or fasting and prayer, the master key is revelation. Revelation gives birth to a relationship and relationship gives birth to experience.
When Abraham saw God as Jehovah Jireh in that He believed that even if he offered Isaac as a burnt sacrifice, God was faithful and able to bring Him back to life. That is, provide another Isaac. God manifested Himself as Jireh (the Lord, My provider).
So, if you see God as the healer, you will know Him as the healer; if you see Him as the sanctifier, you will experience Him as the sanctifier.
Be transformed by the renewal of your mind!
‘‘And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.’’
