description: (hide)

The omnipotent, sovereign power of God is a resource available to all His called-out ones. From the time of Creation, God granted humans a limited measure of power and dominion (Genesis 1:18-23), but not until the Day of Pentecost of 31 AD did their potential become fully operative. This power reached full intensity when the Father raised the Son from the dead, granting Him all authority (Matthew 28:18), enabling Him to function as High Priest to accomplish the work of salvation to all of those called (Ephesians 1:20-23). God grants access to His power for those who yield to His shaping and workmanship (Ephesians 2:10), providing the power to will and do (Philippians 2:13). God's people must use this power or lose it. The power demonstrated by the Father in resurrecting Christ is far greater than shown in the creation of the earth or in the miracles performed for ancient Israel because it adds the dimension of Eternal life. Only through using God's Holy Spirit can one change his disposition (Romans 8:1-5). God strengthens His people when they 1.) demonstrate dependence on God, 2.) express the joy of God, 3.) pray in accordance with God's will, 4.) gain wisdom from above, 5.) exhibit quiet confidence in God, 6.) patiently wait on God and 7.) rely on God's grace (Ephesians 2:4-7). No power can withstand God, including the power of death (Hebrews 2:14).
