The secret of the mystery, part 187. Divine omnipotence: the grace and the power to be above it all.
Wednesday, January 31, 2007
In the Old Testament, the old way was to put people in the furnace and they were not burnt; they were put into the lion’s den and they were never touched.
But now they go into the furnace and they do get burnt, sometimes to a cinder; the lions may devour them, but they don’t give in; for it is not the power for them now that counts, but it is the power in them.
PHI 4:13 I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
You will never know your own strength until you are faced with adversity and experience divine power or the application of the omnipotence of God in your life.
Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance the next time.
1TH 5:18 in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
When trials, difficulties, sorrows, or weaknesses come our way, the thing to consider is the grace and the power to be above it all.
Calamity is the perfect glass wherein we truly see and know ourselves.
Calamity is the test of integrity.
Availability of divine power does not mean utilization of divine power.
Utilization depends upon the believer’s self-determination and his perception, metabolization, and application of Bible doctrine.
Every believer has the availability of this power, but it remains potential until you fulfill the principle of perception, metabolization, and application of Bible doctrine.
Between availability and utilization is perception, metabolization, and application of the mystery doctrine of the Church-age.
The utilization of this divine power then depends upon your perception, metabolization, and application of Bible doctrine plus the utilization of the problem-solving devices resulting in advance to spiritual maturity and the manufacture of invisible heroes.
The invisible hero of the Church-age is manufactured out of divine power.
The invisible hero also has maximum use of divine power during any given generation of the Church-age.
The invisible hero has maximum use of the ten problem-solving devices of the PPOG.
The invisible hero has the life beyond His fondest dreams.
1. The omnipotence of the Father in eternity past created invisible assets for every Church-age believer.
2. The omnipotence of the Holy Spirit who has provided an unprecedented delegation and distribution of divine power inside God’s plan for your life.
ZEC 4:6 “Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says the Lord.
HEB 4:12 “The word of God is alive and powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of the soul and the spirit, and of joints and the marrow, and is a critic of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
