Just as a city goes into a blackout and a building goes on its own backup power source, so too we have our own internal power source turned on when we recognize and detach from the weaknesses and frailties of the worlds system. Our power plant is called “the Dunamis of God”. A word that means “Dynamo”.
Paul opened up to those in Rome saying ” I am not ashamed of the gospel message of — Christ, for it is the power of God unto (meaning the delivery mechanism to complete) salvation for all who believe.”
The word “power” in this text comes from the Greek word “dunamis”, which is where we get the word “dynamite” and carries the connotation of a consecutive, ongoing generating of power. Like a dynamo or a power plant.
That is what we have inside us if we are “in Christ”. We call this the Holy Spirit, our eternal, internal resource center and power supply. However, we do not need for the power grid to go down for our internal generator to kick in, but we do need to do a disconnect from the mechanisms on earth the vie for our dependency upon them that compete with this Heavenly power. We need to put them off and put on Christ, one revelation at a time until we have been completely retired by scripture. This is how the power of God works unto (meaning the delivery mechanism to complete) salvation for all who believe.” In this way we have been empowered by the Almighty God.
It’s activated by our faith, as all of our services given to us by God are. “If you had the faith of a mustard seed you could move mountains”? We have power t do many things in the spirit. The first mountain we moved was Sinai because you have to get past that to be saved.
The book of the Revelation says ” blessed are those who die in the Lord from here on out. That they may cease from their deeds (carnal dependancies and services) and their works do follow.” This Is what we are talking about. When the various powers and agencies fail in the world, we have a greater counterpart reserved for us in Heaven.
We are those you cannot see, whose works you can, so you can follow us as we have clamored up the things God has said, having taken Him at His word, and arriving where it takes us, seated far above all powers and principalities in any and every age.
10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it”.
Which is? The perfecting of His Saints. His word came forth. We call Him the Son. He returned to the Father. Did you follow Him? Because He said “follow Me, that where I am you may be also, who also told us what means to get there saying “I am the way and the truth”. Meaning, when you take the truth and follow it, it takes you to Him. And because Jesus returned to the a Father, if you put these truths on, you will get there. Where? To the a Father where Jesus is.
We are in Christ, Christ is in us. He said “Father, I have finished the work you have given me to do. I have given your Word to those whom you have given Me and they have kept it”. Who also said to us “if you keep my words and they abide in you, we will come to you and make our home in you. The work is complete, it has made a full circle. In this way we have completed our journey to the Father. Isn’t this what Paul begged you to do? “I beg you, by the tender Mercies of God, be ye reconciled to the Father. For He made him who knew no sin to become sin for us to become the righteousness of God in Him”.
There are no excuses. “What if” is not part of our vocabulary. There is no room for fear because those who fear have not been perfected in love because fear involves torment. Torment only happens in the absence of God. Not that God leaves us, but we leave God through fear. That is a work of the flesh and what Adam did when the Father asked Him, where are you. Adam said “I heard your voice and became afraid” because the snake sowed doubt.
Doubt was not given to Adam by God but Satan. And because the word doubt conotates a split in decisiveness. In this way doubt creates a duality, a double. For this reason James says “a double minded man is unstable in all his ways, let not that one recieve anything from the Lord”.
That ones reliance is on another. Their power source is from without not within.. Those who hybernate in fear have no dunamis because fear is the by-product of the fall. That is why cowards are listed as those who are denied access to the Kingdom of God and listed with the enemies. (Rev 21.8)
James also referred to those who store up for the last days as enemies because that is the epitome of fear. That you would be where God can’t help you.
When the Jewish leaders sought to kill the Savior, He hid by walking through their midst, showing us how to do it. And the wind blows where it wishes, so are those born of the spirit. So then those of us who have God’s Holy Spirit need no other agencies. We are full from within and why the gospel says that we are complete in Him, and “of His fullness we have received” as those whom the gospel has met it’s completion. We have arrived in Christ a perfect man Ephesians 4.13.
Please stay your course and press in. As always, The Kingdom of God is at Hand. Meaning, within your grasp but never carnally tangible. For now the Kingdom is preached and the violent take it by force. We take God at His word. We believe it.
