Powerful Powers

Have you ever wondered what is power and where does it come from, and who has it? Well lets look at what the Bible says about power. First lets look at 1Chronicles 29:10 it says David praised the Lord in the presence of the whole assembly, saying, Praise be to you, O Lord, God of our father Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Yours O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours O Lord is the kingdom; Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things, in your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all. Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise you glorious name.

In the book of Psalms 68:34 it says Proclaim the power of God, whose majesty is over Israel, whose power is in the skies. You are awesome, O God, in your sanctuary; the God of Israel gives power and strength to his people. Praise be to God! In Isaiah 40:10 it says See, the Sovereign Lord comes with power, and his arm rules for him.

God appoints his power to whom he pleases. Look at Acts10:37 it says You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, telling the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all. You know what has happened throughout Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.

Now look at 2Corinthians 12:9 it says But he said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for the power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest one me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

It says in Ephesians 1:18 I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.

In Philippians 3:10 it says I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection for the dead. Now look at Colossians 1:10 it says And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way; bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Jesus is like Melchizedek. Look at Hebrews 7:15 it says And what we have said is even more clear if another priest like Melchizedek appears, one who has become a priest not basis of a regulation as to his ancestry but on the basis of the power of an indestructible life. For it is declared: You are priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.

Look at what Paul said in the Book of 2Timothy 1:6 it says For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self discipline.

Jesus is so powerful look what is says in Luke 24:19 it says What things? He asked. About Jesus of Nazareth, they replied. He was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people. Now look at Hebrews 1:3 it says The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word.

Look at Revelation 4:10 it says the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne, and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say; You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by you will they were created and have their being.

Love Always,
Your Sister in Christ,
