Powers of God

  There are many powers of good and there are many powers of evil. But the most evident, is the powers of evil. It is so readily available and easy to attain.

  Evil rules this planet, if you don't agree with that, take a look around, crime is increasing, drugs are increasing, suicides, run-a-ways, sexual activity is increasing and greed is everywhere, for who does not wake up in the morning and think "What can I do for me today"?. unless your a True Christian, then you think "What can I do for others today"? If you still have doubts that the world and/or most people are evil, consider this verse.

  • John 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out
  Also (John 14:30). Jesus Christ Himself stated three times that Satan or Evil is the prince of this world. It is also written that Satan is the God of this world.
  • II Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
  • Matthew 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
 So by that verse alone we can accurately say that few are going to Heaven. If only a few are going to Heaven and will find that difficult path, then we can say that most people are evil, thus evil rules the Earth, because the majority are going through the broad and wide and easy gate.

  So I'm sorry to say, but the power of evil is far greater than the powers of good here on Earth. This is why it is difficult to be a True Christian. Like the previous verse says, Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

  Most all of us know the powers of evil, but for the sake of those who do not know, i will list some, also note that there is Scripture(A) that states whosoever does these things will not enter into the Kingdom of God: Devil worshipping, Witchcraft, Black Magic, Evil Spirit possessions, Fornicators, Perverted sex (men w/ men, women w/ women, humans with animals, adults w/ children, anything other than Husband (man) and Wife (woman)) Adulters, Adultresses, Lustful thoughts, Evil desires, Making threats, Forcing against one's will, Those who abuse themselves, Those who abuse others (mental or physical), Whores, coveteousness, Idolaters, Friends of the world, Those who love this life, The lawless, Insubordinates, Ungodly, SINNERS, Unholy, Profane, Murderers, Kidnappers, LIARS, Perjurers, Boasters, Greed, Pride, The Proud, Blasphemers, Disobedient to parents, Unthankful, Gays, Bi's, Truce breakers, False accusers, Fierce, Despisers of those who are good, Traitors, Highminded, Lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, Lovers of money more than lovers of God, AND IF THERE IS ANY OTHER THING CONTRARY TO SOUND DOCTRINE. (I Timothy 1:10)

  Now I'm starting to see why only a few will go to Heaven and many will not. Well enough about the powers of evil, what are the powers of good? They are some of these: LOVE, Faith, Patience, Kindness, Giving, Caring, Concerned, Sincere, Understanding, Unselfish, Holy, Blameless, Righteous, are all powers of good and if you continue in all these powers of good then you will receive the powers of God, which are some of these

  • I Corinthians 12 8: For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; 9: To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 10: To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: 11: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

  So these gifts we receive from the Spirit once we have attained that level of spirituality that allows us to be True Christians, What else does the Scriptures say?

  • Mark 16:15: And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16: He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. 17: And these signs shall follow them that believe; (Now listen closely, these signs shall follow them that believe, It doesn't say maybe or might or could, it says shall follow. And Christ Himself said it) In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18: 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.

  Here's another verse that Jesus Christ said.

  • John 14:12: 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.

  He did not say might or maybe, He said SHALL DO. So a True Christian will have powers and as Jesus said, even more than He did, Jesus also told His disciples they would have power if they believed. Do you have these powers? If not are you still within your sins?

  • Matthew 21:18: Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered. 19: And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. 20: And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away! 21: Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. 22: And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
  Can you imagine making a mountain remove from here to the sea, or even making a fig tree wither away just by your words. A True Christian will be able to do all these things that i spoke of. The Bible preaches that a True believer WILL receive these gifts, not might or maybe, but will receive them.

  But like most everything in life, they are not free, you have to earn them, You will suffer trials and tribulations(B). you will be tested, and if you endure through the trials and tribulations(C) God will grant you those gifts. As it is written difficult is the way and few will find it. (Matthew 7:13-14 )

In His Holy and Precious Name, Jesus Christ
