28 Important Bible verses about Manifestation

Bible verses about manifestation

The Bible speaks a lot about manifestation. The Holy Bible is filled with powerful verses, teachings and commands that can help you manifest what you want in life. Today we will be discussing some of these important Bible verses and will talk about their application to manifesting our goals in life.

What does Manifestation mean Biblically?

Manifestation is a word used to describe the act of a person’s thoughts, words and deeds. This is one of the ways we can see how a person believes in God.

It is important to understand that manifestation does not mean that you must have faith in order to receive what you are asking for. It also does not mean that God gives you things to get for yourself.

The Bible says over and over again that faith without works is dead (James 2:17). The Bible also says that if our faith is weak, it will not manifest itself (James 2:26). The Bible tells us to pray in faith (Matthew 21:22) and then ask God for things we need daily (Matthew 7:7-8).

Bible Verses about Manifestation

Manifestation is an important topic for everyone who wants to be successful in life. Even though all of us have the ability to manifest anything at any given time, only few take advantage of the possibilities. Manifestation has a lot to do with our attitude and the way we see things.

Acts 2:3 – Fire is used as a metaphor for purification in the Bible.

And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them.

Acts 2:3

Acts 2_3 - Fire is used as a metaphor for purification in the Bible

Fire is used as a metaphor for purification in the Bible. Fire cleansed Isaiah’s unclean lips (Isaiah 6:4-8) and burns away the wheat’s useless chaff (Luke 3:17).

When we are judged, our works will be put through the fire to burn away the useless and reveal the good (1 Corinthians 3:12–15).

The tongues of fire appear to be visual manifestations of the Holy Spirit’s intent in this case. His plan is to give Jesus’ followers the ability to communicate in other languages.

The Holy Spirit comes, not only to permanently establish His presence in each individual but also to equip them as needed to spread the news that Jesus forgives sins and reconciles sinners to God.

1 John 5:7 – The Son of Christ.

For there are three that testify.

1 John 5:7

1 John 5_7 - The Son of Christ

This verse summarizes some of the evidence that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. The events of Jesus’ death and resurrection, as well as the internal witness of the Holy Spirit, are all described.

Christians can have faith in what they have been taught because of this multi-part testimony. Those who deny these facts are effectively accusing God of lying.

1 Timothy 3:16 – He was crucified for his people’s sins.

Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness: He was manifested in the flesh, vindicated by the Spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory.

1 Timothy 3:16

1 Timothy 3_16 - He was crucified for his people's sins

The Son of God became manifest through the corporeal assumption of human nature, allowing him to be seen, heard, and felt.

The Holy Spirit descended on Jesus at his baptism, purifying and sanctifying his human nature and keeping it free of sin and taint, thus testifying that he was the Son of God and proving Jesus to be the Messiah.

He was crucified for his people’s sins, and when he rose from the dead, he was justified and acquitted of all their sins, and they were justified in him, showing forth the mystery of Godliness.

He was raised from the dead, and glory was bestowed upon his risen body; he ascended in a glorious manner to heaven, in a cloud and in chariots of angels, and was welcomed there by his Father; and he is set down at his right hand, and crowned with glory and honor, and glorified with the glory he had with him before the world was.

1 Corinthians 12:7 – Spiritual gifts are manifestations of God’s power.

To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.

1 Corinthians 12:7

1 Corinthians 12_7 - Spiritual gifts are manifestations of God's power

Spiritual gifts are not intended to benefit those who receive them. Spiritual gifts are manifestations of God’s power at work through the Holy Spirit and under Christ’s authority.

In other words, spiritual gifts do not elevate some people above others in terms of importance or impact. Each believer receives some manifestation of the Spirit, which is often visible to others.

Another revelation in this verse is that God gives these gifts to Christians, all Christians, for the common good. The gifts’ purpose is to strengthen the church and to serve other Christians.

Romans 3:23 – We can be made righteous through faith in Christ.

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Romans 3:23

Romans 3_23 - We can be made righteous through faith in Christ

Knowing the difference between right and wrong, or even God’s law does not make us moral. We continue to fall short; even knowing the consequences of our sinfulness is insufficient to keep us from sinning.

We all fall short of God’s glory because none of us are sinless. That is significant because we can only be saved from God’s wrath for our sins if we are sinless. That is God’s standard;

His glory, or the glory of Himself and His kingdom, is what He shares with His family, His children. However, our sin prevents us from sharing in His glory.  We can be made righteous through faith in Christ. Everyone has access to grace.

Luke 8:17 – Injustice cannot be concealed.

For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.

Luke 8:17

Luke 8_17 - Injustice cannot be concealed

The truth is that whatever one tries to conceal and cover up will eventually come to light and become known. Injustice cannot be concealed. It will appear sooner rather than later. What is done in the country or in the closet in the dark will eventually come to light.

We must remember and recognize that God uses us and our technology to carry out his principles and will.

As God stated in Luke 12:2-3, the secrets will be revealed, the truth will be revealed, and God’s thoughts on every behavior and action will be vindicated.

John 14:21 – Only those who accept Christ will see and understand God spiritually.

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

John 14:21

John 14_21 - Only those who accept Christ will see and understand God spiritually

Those who reject God will not see Him; those who reject Christ will also reject God (John 14:9). Those who truly love God are those who accept Him and receive the Holy Spirit in faith (John 14:15–17).

The world will no longer see Jesus in a literal sense—the crucifixion marks the end of His physical appearance to non-believers (John 14:19).

Only those who accept Christ will see and understand God spiritually (1 Corinthians 2:14).

Ephesians 3:20 – His power resides in us.

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us.

Ephesians 3:20

Ephesians 3_20 - His power resides in us

This means that the same power that raised Jesus from the dead resides within us, ready to help us overcome any obstacle.

Whatever task you face, whatever problem you face, God has promised that the power that lives within us through the Spirit of God is more than enough for us to triumph.

1 Corinthians 10:13 – Our God is still on our side.

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

1 Corinthians 10:13

1 Corinthians 10_13 - Our God is still on our side

Paul emphasizes that no one of us is uniquely tempted by sin. It has been witnessed by countless others throughout the generations. The experience of human temptation contributes to Christ’s relationship with us being one of trust and hope (Hebrews 4:14–16).

Our God is still on our side. He adores us. He is not waiting for us to fail; rather, He is ready to assist us. He assists believers by actively working in our lives to keep us from being tempted beyond our ability to resist.

We may not always believe that we can defeat temptation. God promises that, through the power of the Holy Spirit, we can resist any temptation.

1 John 3:2 – We are His children.

Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.

1 John 3:2

1 John 3_2 - We are His children

Being a child of God is not something that happens in the future for the believer; we are His children from the moment we believe into eternity (John 1:12).

Furthermore, our future has not yet been fully revealed. Believers in eternity with the Lord will have a new body and will exist forever in God’s presence, far superior to our lives today.

Some of this is simply beyond our comprehension; certain things will only be “revealed” to us when Christ appears to take us home.

James 5:16 – Prayer is effective.

Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

James 5:16

Prayer is effective. God hears and responds. A righteous person’s prayer is powerful and effective because God hears and acts on it.

James writes that it should be common practice for Christians to confess our sins to one another and pray for one another in order to be healed.

The term “healed” can refer to both physical illness and discouragement and spiritual weakness. In either case, Christians must do two things to help this healing. Confession and prayer

Bible Verses about Manifestation of God’s Power

Manifestation of God’s power – The word ‘manifestation’ is used in the New Testament to describe many different things.

For example, the power of God can be manifested when He heals the sick, feeds many people with just a loaf of bread and few fish, gives sight to the blind or makes them see again.

John 3:16

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:16

Forgiveness is always costly for the one who forgives, but no one paid a higher price for forgiveness than the Father (Jn 3:16). Righteousness demands that the world be judged, but love prompts God to provide a way for people to be saved from the coming wrath.

God also saw a way to bring men and women back to himself in peace and friendship. Believers will not face God’s wrath for their sins.

By taking our sin on himself, Jesus has imputed his righteousness to us. Everlasting life is difficult to grasp, but there is no clearer promise in the Bible.

Acts 1:8

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Acts 1:8

The Holy Spirit will be given to Jesus’ followers, empowering them to perform signs and miracles. Through His death on the cross and resurrection, Jesus established the means for God’s people to be saved. The work of the Holy Spirit is to spread the message that salvation is found in Jesus.


John 1:14

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

John 1:14

Christ was a completely authentic human being. Verse 14 expresses this explicitly by referring to Him as “The Word” and stating unequivocally that He “became flesh,” living among humans.

This means that Jesus was not a hologram or a ghost dressed as a person. He was a real, living, breathing human being. As a result, He could claim to have gone through everything we do as mortals (Hebrews 4:15). He is full of glory, grace, and truth.

Romans 8:19

For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

Romans 8:19

However, there will come a time when those in Christ will be glorified and it will be impossible to deny that we are God’s children. The world will see God’s righteousness and our faith validated. Paul is describing a time in the future when God will make everything right. According to Paul, all of nature is looking forward to that day.

1 Timothy 3:16

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

1 Timothy 3:16

The mystery of godliness is not about our godliness, but about the mystery that allows our godliness to exist. Christ descended from heaven for us and our salvation. The theme of heaven’s praises is our Lord Jesus Christ’s work on the cross.

If we are truly humbled by the mystery of Godliness, it should make it easier to proclaim the gospel. The truth will flow more freely from us, allowing others to come to saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Bible Verses Against Manifestation

We all want to see our prayers answered and manifest everything we desire.

However, it’s not always so easy. Don’t be discouraged because there are many verses in the Bible that tell us how difficult it can be to manifest what we want when God has not given it to us yet.

Psalm 115:3

Our God is in heaven;
he does whatever pleases him

Psalm 115:3

God is never forced to do something he despises. He is never put in a position where his only option is to do something he despises. He can do whatever he wants. As a result, he takes pleasure in everything he does.

This should cause us to bow before God and praise his sovereign freedom — that he always acts freely, according to his own “good pleasure,” following the dictates of his own delights.

Proverbs 19:21

Many are the plans in a person’s heart,
but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.

Proverbs 19:21

People make plans for a variety of reasons and with varying motivations. But, at the end of the day, God will get his way. This should bring great comfort to anyone who wants to see God have his way in their lives.

Proverbs 16:9

In their hearts humans plan their course,
but the Lord establishes their steps.

Proverbs 16:9

It is not wrong to plan, but being open to God changing your path is the best way to go about it.

While it is appropriate to make plans as one who has been given the authority to make decisions, we must remember that God is ultimately in charge and has the authority to change our course whenever he sees fit.

In this way, we can live a wonderful life by working hard and doing the right things as we see them but then trusting God for the results

Proverbs 3:5

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;

Proverbs 3:5

Even when we don’t understand God’s ways, we must approve of them. Isaiah 55:8, 9 This means that we cannot put our own right to understand ahead of His right to direct our lives as He sees fit.

We put ourselves in spiritual danger when we insist on God always making sense to our finite minds.
We know He is faithful when we trust Him with all of our hearts. He will never let us down.

John 14:6

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me

John 14:6

Jesus’ death on the cross opened the way through the curtain to the holiest of holies. We can now enter the glorious presence of the Father with confidence because of Christ (Heb 10:19).

Christ alone is the solution to the problem of death brought about by Adam’s sin. Jesus promised that he came to give us abundant life.

Bible Verses on Manifestation of God’s Glory

1 John 3:2

Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

1 John 3:2

The expected outcome of salvation is a life that grows to be more and more like Christ—but this does not imply an instant change to perfection. God loves us enough to forgive us and assist us in overcoming our sins.

This verse emphasizes God’s incredible love for us. He is not only willing to call us His children, but we are His children. Some of that transformation is immediate, but not all of who we will become has yet been revealed. Only when Christ returns will we be able to see everything He has planned for us.

Revelation 3:21

To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

Revelation 3:21

God’s entire plan is for mankind to live a life in which they despise and resist sin while saying yes to Him in order to triumph. One who overcomes sin in their life demonstrates that God’s way is perfect and contributes to the work of eradicating sin for all eternity.

Everyone who does this will reap the rich rewards of such a life. These promises are applicable to all who emerge victorious.

1 John 5:7

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

1 John 5:7

John emphasizes the supremacy of love in the Christian experience once more. Those who put their faith in Christ can be certain that they will have eternal life.

This assurance comes from believing what we know about Jesus Christ’s life as well as the evidence of the Holy Spirit within us. Following God’s commands, especially love, results in confidence in our salvation as well as strength against the world’s temptations.

Bible Verses about the Manifestation of the Holy Spirit

The manifestation of the Holy Spirit is one of the most important doctrines in Christianity. It’s also one of the more misunderstood and often misinterpreted doctrines.

This section will cover a number of Bible verses about The Holy Spirit and his manifestation in our lives.

John 14:26

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

John 14:26

God comforts us in a variety of ways, including the wonderful promises of His Word, fellow believers, and, of course, the Holy Spirit’s indwelling. The Holy Spirit is our Comforter, but He is also our Counselor, Encourager, and Helper. He is always present to provide comfort to God’s children (Psalm 34:18; 139:7–8).

1 Corinthians 12:7

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

1 Corinthians 12:7

In and among Christians, the Holy Spirit is always present. He may abide with you forever. However, the Spirit’s presence is more noticeable at times than others.

He may choose to make Himself visible, at times. However, we should never believe that when the Holy Spirit manifests Himself through gifts, He is “more” present.

The Holy Spirit is always present in believers, but He is sometimes more visible through manifestations of the Spirit. The goal of the manifestation of the Spirit is to benefit the entire church family, not just one person.

2 Peter 1:21

For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

2 Peter 1:21

If you believe the Bible is God’s Word with authority over your life, you must be humble in order to interpret it correctly.

The reason is simple: the Bible frequently requires us to feel, think, and act in ways that are contrary to our natural inclinations. As a result, when we read the Bible, we desperately need the Holy Spirit’s help.

Acts 1:8

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Acts 1:8

The Holy Spirit is God dwelling within and transforming them here. And being able to testify as part of this power (Acts 1:8).

The comfort of the Holy Spirit’s power is that it begins outside of ourselves, not with our natural abilities. Jesus’ followers are given the authority to speak about the transformation that God works in them.

Acts 2:3

And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them.

Acts 2:3

The Holy Spirit is free and sovereign, not subject to anyone’s timing or method for obtaining his power. We are to rely on his daily presence and grace, walk in obedience to this faith, and pray day and night for an outpouring of power from on high.

But we can’t force the Spirit to appear. When he appears, he does so abruptly. He will never work as a bellhop for anyone. He adores and serves. But he works his own schedule. He is aware of what is best for us.
