There are many powers of Good, and there are many powers of evil. But the most evident, is the power of evil. It is so readily available and easy to attain in a world that satan is the god of.
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.
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 Scriptures that teach whosoever does these things will not enter into the Kingdom of God: Devil worshiping, Witchcraft, Black Magic, Evil Spirit possessions, Fornicators, Perverted sex (men w/ men, women w/ women, humans with animals, adults w/ children, anything other than sex between Husband (man) and Wife (woman)) Adulterers, Adulteresses, Lustful thoughts, Evil desires, Making threats, Forcing against one's will, Those who abuse themselves, Those who abuse others (mental or physical), Whores, covetousness, 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, deviant sex, 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
some of these: LOVE, Faith, Patience, Kindness, Giving, Caring,
Sincere, Understanding, Unselfish, Holy, Blameless, Righteous, Forgiveness are all
of good and if you continue in all these powers of good then you will
the powers of God, which are some of these
So these gifts we receive
Spirit once we have attained that level
of spirituality that allows us to be True Christians, What else does
Here's another verse that Jesus Christ said.
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?
But like most everything in life, they are not free, you have to earn them, You will suffer trials and tribulations. you will be tested, and if you endure through the trials and tribulations, God will grant you those gifts. As it is written difficult is the way and few will find it. (Matthew 7:13-14 )
Why are we not seeing miracles performed by so many proclaimed Christians in this generation, maybe because most of them are still living in sin and are not walking in the light as Jesus did. So then, those sins that you so easily commit is preventing you from healing people, or any of the other gifts of the Holy Ghost to manifest to the world. This generation does not see many miracles performed by billions of professed Christians, why is that? 2.19 Billion professed Christ in the world, you would think there would be so many miracles performed in the world that Most people of the world would convert to Christianity. But what do we see from 2.19 Billion professed Christians in the world. NOTTA. Nil. Nothing. Why is that? i will tell you why because most of those 2.19 Billion people who profess Jesus as their Lord and Savior are Nicolaitans. Believing and/or teaching false doctrines that are contrary to the Word of God, living in sin, and making excuses for them. repenting for sins, but have no intention to ever cease from those sins. Nicolaitans they are.
Another reason we (Christians) do not have any power, is because satan has divided the Body of Christ. satan knew all to well, if we all stand together, think the same things, have ONE mind, ONE BODY that we would have Power from God to overcome satan. So satan causes many divisions. we have over 120 different denomination because we merely agree to disagree, instead of doing what the Bible tells us to do and come to ONE mind, to come to an agreement. NO, we just divide. We are so divided it is almost impossible to even have a Bible study without getting in arguments over what version to use, or an interpretation of this verse compared to that verse. The Church has no power, because we are so divided. So divided that you can't even tell what the body looks like. The number one thing that divides the Church so as to deprive it of any Power, is interpretations. Please click on How to Interpret to see what i am talking about there.
