The function of the omnipotence or the power of God;
ROM 8:33, Who will bring a charge against God’s elect? God is the one who 
justifies;

The apostle Paul is saying who would dare to attack the elect ones with God by messing with one of God chosen people called the Elect.

First, our Lord is the only one in the OT who is called the Elect One;

ISA 42:1, Behold, My Servant, whom I uphold; My chosen one in whom My soul delights. I have put My Spirit [holy] upon Him; He will bring forth justice to the nations.

Secondly, every Church-age believer is said to be elected or chosen; EPH 1:3-4.
ROM 8:34 is saying, Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us? Who was raised to life for us and in the

presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us?

Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture.

They will try and kill us even mentally because Satan is using them to hinder and hate us because of our relationship with TLJC.

None of this terrorizes us because the Lord loves us.

High or low, thinkable or unthinkable Absolutely nothing can get between us and God love because of the way that TLJC our Master has embraced us.

JOH 10:28, And I give eternal life to them, and they shall never perish; and no one shall snatch them out of My hand.

Because the power or the omnipotence of the Lord is used to protect us;
1PE 1:5, Because we are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time or last days.

We are told about this power or omnipotence that the Lord uses to bless us.
PSA 103:3, He pardons all your iniquities and 
heals all your diseases;

ISA 44:22, I have wiped out your transgressions like a thick cloud, and your sins like a heavy mist. Return to Me, for I have redeemed you.

HEB 8:12, He will be merciful to their iniquities, and He will remember our sins no more.

Heb 10:17, And their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.

MIC 7:18-19, Who is a God like Thee, who pardons iniquity and passes over the rebellious act of the remnant of his possession? Yes You will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.

PSA 103:12, As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.

ISA 38:17, For you have cast all their sins behind their back.

PSA 103:10, He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

COL 2:13…He made you alive together with him, having forgiven us all our transgressions,

One of the main problems that Moses had to deal with is what the Jews were about to go through when they were faced with their enemies and also the Ten Commandments.

  1. They were going to face the problem of subjectivity which is occupation with self, which is always prone to self-centeredness.
  2. The Jews are security conscious but they are not freedom conscious.
  3. Their attitude ignored the manifestation of divine power and the 10 plagues of Egypt.

The Jews thought that Moses had led them to die in the desert; EXO 14:11-14.

Why would God go to all this trouble to free the Jews from the slavery in Egypt just to take them out in the desert to die?

Did He bring them out there to die?

He delivered them, He gave them something that was precious; His word and His presence.

They forgot, something that is a major issue in the angelic conflict, – freedom.

Moses was God chosen man and yet they are maligning him and accusing him of being totally wrong.

Frightened and emotional people make all kinds of accusations.

Before you can apply the doctrine of the Supreme Court of Heaven under pressure you have to stabilize your life, you have to organize your thinking when things are normal.

You can’t organize your thinking unless you have something to think, like the problem solving devices.

If you can’t concentrate in Bible class, you’ll never concentrate when disaster comes, so hello panic palace.

Once you get emotional, you always blame others, especially the one in charge.

One of the main reasons is simply because they do not want to admit their own failures and their own mistakes.

Many believers say that they believe in the Word of God but as far as applying what they believe in times of pressure they discover that certain mental blocks exist.

They look for someone to blame and therefore Moses becomes the object of their scorn…Moses becomes the scapegoat.

All they had to do was simply admit that they were wrong and trust in the deliverance of the Lord.

One of the most powerful expressions of God omnipotence is compassion which motivates forgiveness.

PSA 78:38, But He, being compassionate, forgave their iniquity, and did not destroy them; and often He restrained is anger, and did not arouse all His wrath.

PSA 130:3-4, If Thou, Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? But there is forgiveness with Thee, that Thou may be

feared.

Feared in the Hebrew means reverently worshipped.

EPH 1:7, In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace,

ISA 43:25, I even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake [because of My honor and integrity]. Furthermore, I will not

remember your sin.

1JO 2:12, I am writing to you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for His name sake.

Because God has forgiven us, believers are commanded to forgive one another in EPH 4:32 which is an imperative mood.

Forgiving one another is not only a command but it is needed for fellowship and unity in a local assembly.

EPH 4:32, Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other just as God in Christ has also forgiven you.

He is tender-hearted and forgives others on the basis of the fact that God has forgiven him.

Forgiving others allows God to handle the situation rather than self.

If you have failed under disaster testing or like the Jews you are blaming others, just simply name and cite it and go on.

EXO 14:14, The Lord will fight for you while you keep silent.

ROM 12:19, Beloved, do not take your own revenge, but defer to the wrath of God. For it stands written [DEU 32:35], “Vengeance is mine;

I will repay, saith the Lord.”

COL 3:13, Bear one another and forgiving each other. Whoever has a complaint against anyone else, just as the Lord forgave you, so also you should forgive others.

What overcomes our resentment is that which David said in PSA 103:3

The Lord pardons all our iniquities; and heals all our diseases.

EPH 1:7, In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace,

The point is we are under surveillance by a super-natural system of demon investigators. These demon investigators have a book or a journal or a diary of your life.

According to EPH 6:12, Satan has demon investigators who constantly

keep track of all believers to accuse them before the throne; REV 12:9-10.

HEB 4:16, Let us therefore draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and may find grace to help in time of need.

COL 1:16, For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities all things have been created by Him and for Him.

The only thing that hinders a judgment from being carried out is that a believer gets in the way through reaction, seeking revenge, arrogance sins, emotional sins, lust to hurt others.

For the believer, one of the main attributes that God uses as the Supreme Court Judge is His power or omnipotence which means He has the ability to use His power any time He wills to do so.

GEN 17:1, Now when Abram was 99 years old, the Lord appeared to him and said: I am God Almighty; Walk before Me, and be blameless.

GEN 18:14, Is anything too difficult for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, at this time next year, and Sarah shall have a son.

ISA 40:26, lift up your eyes on high and see who has created these stars, the One who leads forth their host by number, He calls them all by name; because of the greatness of His might and the strength of His power not one of them is missing.

JER 27:5 I have made the earth, the men and the beasts which are on the face of the earth by My great power and by My outstretched arm, and I will give it to the one who is pleasing in My sight.

God power is NOT manifested by muscle, His power is in His Word and whatever He says happens.
HEB 1:3, He upholds all 
things by the word of His power.
