The World Will Know Godís Power
People are seeking power. Many are seeking power in themselves. They seek to exert their reign or influence over others. God promises to reveal His power. He promises to reveal the truth that He has raised up Jesus Christ to be Lord of all, filled with Godís power and glory.
We might see Godís power revealed through mighty acts of nature, storms, earthquakes, etc. The Bible talks of great manifestations of Godís power through these types of events in the book of Revelation. (Revelation 8:7; Revelation 11:19; Revelation 16:18)
We might see Godís power revealed through signs and wonders. We might see Godís compassion revealed in greater ways as He increases His healing power and acts among His people. Many prophetic voices are talking of these things. Benny Hinn, for one, feels that God will increase His healing graces so that many who are afflicted with debilitating illnesses will be healed by Godís hand of mercy. We have personally seen God move in miraculous ways of healing people in our recent trips to Africa.
One of the greatest ways we will see Godís power manifested in the days ahead, is through His ability to draw us ever closer to Himself. God is shaking the heavens and the earth so that only the things of His kingdom will stand. He has promised to shake the kingdoms of this world, the lifestyle of "Babylon". He is calling His people to come out of the ways of Babylon, where people live for the pleasures of this world, where people live for the pleasures of their senses. He is calling people to come into His heavenly kingdom, where His will and His ways are sought. He is calling them to live in His presence, and to allow the life of Christ become a living reality within them. He is calling people to receive His holy nature into all of their being so that they learn the reality of living before Him in His Holy Place, and experience His Spirit leading and guiding their every action. New levels of His love for all, and His holy making ability will be revealed and experienced by those willing to allow the sanctifying power of God to completely transform them
God revealed His power to the Egyptians when He delivered his people from their rule and bondage. The Bible says, "And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I stretch forth mine hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them." Exodus 7:5 (KJV).
God promises to deliver us. God promises to separate His people from the ways of the world, from the ways of sin, from the ways of living for themselves. When He does this the world will know His sanctifying (holy making) power and His saving grace. The Bible says, "Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name's sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went. And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified (made holy) in you before their eyes". Ezekiel 36:22-23 (KJV, emphasis added).
People will respect God when they see His ability to transform us into a people who love His holy ways and show others His holy love. When we are filled by and led by the Spirit of God we will no longer live for ourselves and we will show the world a lifestyle that does not give into drunkenness, divorce, lust, violence, self-centeredness etc. The Bible says, "Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh" (Galatians 5:16, emphasis added). Many Christians, like myself, may have committed some of these sins, even when we were Christians. There is forgiveness with God. There is victory with God. There is freedom with God. We can be forgiven, cleansed and filled with His Spirit. We can live above the lusts of this world and of our flesh. We can live in victory. The Bible says, "Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust" (2 Peter 1:4, emphasis added).
God promises to give us victory. He imparts His divine nature, His very Spirit, the life of Christ, into us so that we can show the world His holy making ability and the joy of living in His will. Through the life and power of God in me I can be brought into such a life. Godís power will be made known to His people and then through His people that the world might know His power. May God grant us all to seek, to know, to experience and live in such a power through His Spirit.
