Power In the Name of Jesus

All authority and power

Jesus came up and said to them, “All authority (all power of absolute rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. – Matthew 28:18 (Amplified Bible)

“There is power in the name of Jesus there is power in his name”…. Lincoln Brewster

Have you ever taken the time to consider what this statement by Jesus means? Compare this to authority and power we are familiar with

A bolt of lightning containing power equal to one billion volts of electricity.

An atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima contained power equivalent to 15,000 lbs. of dynamite.

The Hoover Dam that generates, on average, about 4 billion kilowatt-hours of hydroelectric power each year …

The power of choice

The authority of your boss

The authority of a judge

The authority of a law enforcement officer

The authority governments have over millions of people.

Authority over the problems and difficulty in your life….

All of these pale in comparison to power and authority that with a Word

makes blind eyes to see

makes the lame to walk

heals the sick

heals diseases

casts out demons

calms the raging seas

erases a lifetime of sin

raises the dead to life

brings forgiveness

changes history

What if we really believed He has authority over all things?

What if we really believed He has delegated that authority along with power in His name to you, to me?

Would it change your life, would it change the lives of others?

History proves it has and will continue to do so.

Whatever you might be facing today  it is not stronger than His power or  beyond His authority.
