Jesus, spent three years, preaching, teaching and exhibiting the Power of the Kingdom of God.
His last words before going to join His Father were:
“All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.”
He understood, He had done all, He had opened the portal between heaven and earth.
He had brought the Power of God, down to His people, to those who believed. (If they could keep it.)
Acts 10: 38.
“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.”
He had shown them the Power’s use and how to use it. He sent them out to display it.
“And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;
And they went out, and preached that men should repent.
And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.”
He gave them the Power, to cast out devils, and heal the sick. He had shown them how, that it was possible.
They went about, and did the Work of the Ministry.
The Church, once embodied, used and lived that Power. Many came to the Lord, the Church grew.
Somehow, we have lost the Power, He had given it to us, to build His Church.
He gave us the Power and told us to go use it. We can’t even find it, never mind use it.
We were told to GO…. Not To Church, but out into the world, teaching them, with signs and wonders following.
Baptizing and teaching of the Kingdom.
“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
Teaching them all He had shown them, taught them, shared with them.
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.”
“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen. ”
Signs and wonders, should be following, If we believe.
The Lord promised He would confirm His Word with signs following.
“Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.”
Pray that the Lord fill you will all joy and peace in believing.
There is peace and joy in believing the Lord, in doing the Work of the Ministry.
That hope would abound, in our lives, By the Power of the Holy Ghost.
We Must Seek the Power of the Holy Ghost.
This Power is what builds the Church.
“ Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the of hosts.“
