Experiencing God’s Power

by | Feb 5, 2010 | Jesus & the Gospel, Spirit-Led Living, Spiritual Gifts

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 Corinthians 1:18

In the Bible we read how men fell when they caught a glimpse of God’s glory. Paul tells us there are those who have a form of godliness, but deny the power thereof; from such we are to turn away. “In the last days, perilous times shall come,” and those who have reprobate minds shall withstand God’s children to their faces, even as the magicians withstood Moses.

In the last days, there will be some people living very near to God; but the devil will have his workers, too, who will attribute signs and wonders done to any power except the power of Christ. The Lamb of God, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, has never lost His power, and never will lose His power. I would hate to say, by my actions, that I thought the devil had more power than God.

There is a wonderful difference between the power of God and any of those other powers. The Holy Ghost comes only in Christ. He only comes into the bodies of those who love God. When He takes possession of us, He takes us away into the sweetest experience this side of heaven—that of being alone with God. He talks to us and reveals to us “things to come” (John 16).

It is wonderful! God puts us under the power, and God takes us out. No man can bestow this power upon another. It comes only through Jesus Christ. There are two kinds of power, and people who do not know the difference will stand up today and say that wisdom is foolishness.

Holy Spirit, take possession of me that I might
know the sweetest experience
this side of heaven. Amen.
