Relating to God's Power!

Relating to God’s Power

By Abraham Israel





How would we personally relate to God if He were a force [power] or principle [theory / belief / code]?

If God is just a power and not a person, there is no way we can relate to Him. If it were so, we can only relate to God as we relate to gravitational power or other types of power. There can be no power with out a source that controls it. So Power in itself is of no use unless a person holds it and controls it to be used for a particular purpose. This is why God is not a power, but God holds the infinite power of all universe. God is omnipotent. He is all powerful. David the king as a person who personally experienced the power of the mighty God says, “God has spoken once, twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God.” (Psalm 62:11). Here He explains that the real supernatural power is with God. As we all know that man is always limited in power. If we want to relate to God who is infinite in power, then we need a cordial relationship with the greater person. For example, from the greater flows the lesser because the greater is the source.

If we hear and know what is the way in which we can receive power from the greater one, then we
can relate to him to receive the power. God says, “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be a witness of Me…. to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8). Here the Greek word for power is ‘dunamis’ from which the English word ‘dynamite’ comes from. This gives us an idea that we can only relate to the power of God in His terms only because the power that comes from Him is like a dynamite power that may blow us off if it is not restrained and handled properly.

And this power is not given to boast or do magic before everybody. This power can be tapped only if we are willing enough to do what He says and that too in His own terms. If we are willing enough to be a witness to all the people and are ready to tell what we experience, then this power
[dunamis] can be experienced.

And this experience can be experienced through the Holy Spirit who himself is the greatest power in the universe. In the Old Testament, many people who did and fulfilled the will of God experienced awesome power to do what God wanted them to do
[David, Samson…..]. In the New Testament, many people experienced God’s anointing [Healing power].

If God were only a principle
[theory/belief/code] we cannot relate to Him absolutely, because we are not only physical, but ultimately spiritual.

Only a spirit being can relate to another spirit being. For example through code and theory the Israelites absolutely failed to relate to God
(Matthew 13:14, 15).

About

apostolicrevelation.info is one of the world's fast growing popular Bible study websites, attracting thousands of visitors daily from all around the world. We follow a unique revelatory apostolic seer writing from the Scripture with Rapture taking place any time after Mid-Point but before Great Tribulation begins through Antichrist, we use dispensational interpretation of Scripture and believe the Bible teaches salvation by grace through faith alone, and the eternal security of believers. We will focus mainly on apostolic teaching that will edify, equip and empower the saints to reach their full potential in Christ Jesus. Our goal is the edification, evangelism and empowerment of the last day Church that the Lord Jesus Christ is raising up before His triumphant return!
