The Power of God

   

Now about Pentecostals.. I have never been hated so much anywhere by any religious groups as I have been by Brethren and Baptist Christians, pastors  when they find out I am a Pentecostal… their evident fruits of hatred alone shows how false they themselves now are too. they clearly had, do manifest the opposite of the fruit of the Holy Spirit which is love.

Clearly Self-complacency, Self-deception about one’s own adequacies and Pretention, Deception of self-aggrandizement,  Legalism, Unbelief in God still manifest as being the basic causes for the visible lack of  available Biblical Power amongst so many Christians, Churches even today!
 
(John 15:5 KJV)  I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

(Mat 6:13 KJV)  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.   

 

 

(Mat 9:8 KJV)  But when the multitude saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men.
 
(Mat 10:1 KJV)  And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
 
(Mat 22:29 KJV)  Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
 
(Mat 28:18 KJV)  And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
 
(Mark 3:15 KJV)  And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:
 
(Luke 1:35 KJV)  And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
 
(Luke 4:14 KJV)  And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.
 
(Luke 4:32 KJV)  And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power.
 
(Luke 4:36 KJV)  And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.
 
(Luke 5:17 KJV)  And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them.
 
(Luke 9:43 KJV)  And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God.
 
(Luke 10:19 KJV)  Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
 
(Luke 12:5 KJV)  But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.
 
(Acts 1:8 KJV)  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
 
(Acts 3:12 KJV)  And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk? (Acts 3:16 KJV)  And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.
 
(Acts 4:7 KJV)  And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, By what power, or by what name, have ye done this?…10  Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11  This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. 12  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
 
(Acts 4:33 KJV)  And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.
 
(Acts 6:8 KJV)  And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.
 
(Acts 10:38 KJV)  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.
 
(Rom 1:4 KJV)  And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:
 
(Rom 1:16 KJV)  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
 
(Rom 15:13 KJV)  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.
 
(Rom 15:19 KJV)  Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.
 
(Rom 16:25 KJV)  Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,
 
(1 Cor 1:18 KJV)  For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
 
(1 Cor 1:24 KJV)  But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
 
(1 Cor 2:4 KJV)  And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
 
(1 Cor 2:5 KJV)  That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
 
(1 Cor 4:20 KJV)  For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.
 
(2 Cor 4:7 KJV)  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
 
(2 Cor 12:9 KJV)  And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
 
(2 Cor 13:4 KJV)  For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.
 
(Eph 1:19 KJV)  And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
 
(Eph 3:20 KJV)  Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
 
(Eph 6:10 KJV)  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
 
(1 Th 1:5 KJV)  For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.
 
(2 Tim 1:7 KJV)  For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
 
(2 Tim 3:5 KJV)  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
 
(2 Pet 1:3 KJV)  According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
 
(2 Pet 1:16 KJV)  For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
 
(Rev 18:1 KJV)  And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
 
(Rev 19:1 KJV)  And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:
 
(Rev 20:6 KJV)  Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
 

 

Clearly Self-complacency, Self-deception about one’s own adequacies and Pretention, Deception of self-aggrandizement,  Legalism, Unbelief in God still manifest as being the basic causes for the visible lack of  available Biblical Power amongst so many Christians, Churches even today!
 
In many churches, the Pastoral Library are filled with ungodly men’s books, commentaries, and they wrongfully too  have replaced the Bible as the power of God
 
God is not looking for Liberals, mere Librarians or Historians but He is looking for  godly men and women willing to be filled with the Holy Spirit and next being seriously committed to praying for a   Revival from on High.
  
Increased personal Bible reading, prayer and obedience are clear signals that we personally are pressing toward maturity in Jesus Christ. For we cannot hope to lead any of the others to where we ourselves have refused to go..

  1. Todd Bentley tried to be a godly persons.. just cause he sins like you and I do does not make him a false prophets.. otherwise we all are going to hell now too.

    I think few people understand what the definition of a real New testament prophet is or what prophecy as well is.. it is not always foretelling the future.. rather it is telling people what God has on his mind today for them to know.. and while the New testament prophets are the same Holy spirit gifted categories of elders as pastors, evangelists too, few people now expect all pastors to be free of sin or perfect but hypocritically they expect all of the prophets to be perfect.. how absurd and yes they’re are much too many demonic led persons who promote hatred against Pentecostals and looks for any excuse to bash them as well.. Let the 2 or 3 prophets speak and led the others judge.. there is a reason for this.. there is no just man that doeth good and sinneth not, and I have yet to meet one prefect Christian besides Jesus Christ.. even Apostle peter himself was often wrong in what he had said and was rebuked by both Jesus Christ and Apostle Paul now too.. being wrong did not mean he was not an apostle still though.. wisen up you false critics..

    I have been both Baptist and Pentecostal too.
