‘Natural faith has its limitations. Supernatural Faith has none’
– Quote by Smith Wigglesworth
Here is supernatural working through the Holy Spirit convincing Paul who at this point is Saul. Faith in Jesus. This is not natural or earthly yet Saul is forever changed from being a persecutor of followers of Yeshua to being a powerful mouthpiece for Him later to be a martyr.
And when we all had fallen to the ground, I heard a voice speaking to me and saying in the Hebrew language, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’ So I said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ And He said, ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. But rise and stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you. I will deliver you from the Jewish people, as well as from the Gentiles, to whom I now send you, to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.’
