God Wants You to Move in His Word and His Power

  • Banner 1

Life in God is the most amazing adventure we can ever have, if we are doing it right! Many people get it wrong because they miss one aspect or another of the life in God. In particular, we need to be people of the Word, but we also need to be people of the Spirit.

 

Two sources of error:

Jesus was once asked a theological question dealing with the resurrection of the dead. While we are not going to deal with this issue, or His answer, there was something very important that He said prior to answering the question. He said: “You are deceived, because you don’t know the Scriptures or the power of God.” (Matt 22:29 HCSB) This is a very sobering answer. There are two possible sources of error in our spiritual lives. One is not knowing the Scriptures, but the other is not knowing the power of God.

 

Not knowing the Scripture:

In general, churches and Bible Colleges have done a relative good job in teaching the Scriptures. They teach from the historical view, and its application for today. When we know the doctrine found in Scripture, we can avoid falling into certain types of errors. The Apostle Paul told Timothy: “Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.” (1 Tim 4:16 NKJV) This means that not knowing proper doctrine, you can be deceived and be lost. Moreover, improper doctrine can cause you to lead others away from God rather than to God and cause them not to be saved! In the days we are living in, the information age, there are many opinions available online, but not all of them lead to salvation. In particular, there are doctrines which the Bible calls “doctrines of demons” (1 Tim 4:1) that would lead people astray. We live in the time that everyone wants people to tell them what they want to hear. This is very dangerous. Rather, we should want to hear the truth. The truth related to spiritual matters is only found in the Bible.

 

Not knowing the power of God:

While churches and Bible Colleges by and large have been able to teach the Scriptures, many are dangerously lacking in the power of God. According to Jesus, any believer, no matter how well they have studied the Scripture, that does not know the power of God, is at risk of falling into error. This is mostly seen in people that believe that God can heal people or do miracles (in theory) but have never seen (much less been used to perform) a miracle. God never intended for the gospel to be preached in words alone. The Apostle Paul said of his trip to Corinth: “And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power…” (1 Cor 2:4 NKJV) When a person believes only by Scripture but does not have an experience with the power of God, someone else can or lead them into error. This is the reason why Jesus sent His Spirit in Acts 2, that all believers would demonstrate the power of God.

 

Are you being properly trained?

Jesus is not only found as a historical figure in the pages of Scripture. He is ready to manifest Himself in the here and now with miracles, signs, and wonders. But for that, you have to know and move in the power of God. This power is available to all believers. Have you witnessed any miracles? Have you been used to perform a miracle? This is the abundant life Jesus promised us. These are the powers of the age to come that are available to us today. I pray that you may grow in the knowledge of the word of God and experience the power of the Holy Spirit.

 

Note:  If you want to be trained in the Scriptures AND in the power of God, why don’t you become a student of the University of the Supernatural Ministry?
