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
casts out demons
calms the raging seas
erases a lifetime of sin
raises the dead to life
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.
