The Kingdom of Power

Hello Friends,

This Sunday on Radio Horeb in Europe I am speaking on the theme, “Seek the Kingdom of God.”  Jesus tells us to seek first for the kingdom, but many Christian people have no idea of what the kingdom is or how to seek it.

Some think it means heaven, others think it refers to their church, and others to the reign of Christ on earth. But here is one thing I know: the kingdom of God has to do with the power of God, not our church affiliation, doctrine, or theology.

The kingdom of God does not consist in word, but in power (1 Corinthians 4:20).

Consider the experience of St. Paul:

And my word and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith should not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God (1 Corinthians 2:4-5).

I’ve experienced this power many times over the years, but there is one time I’ll never forget. It happened in January 1980 when I learned that the leukemia was now in our teenage son’s brain. I bottomed out. I had nothing left.

The Day I Experienced the Power of God

I went to bed and lay there for three days. During this time, I could not cry; pray, or read the Bible. I could not reach up to God for help. All I could think about was getting a gun and killing our son and myself. I simply had no strength, no power left. I could not face the future.

On the third day, as God is my witness, a ball of energy suddenly came down from above and entered right into me, filling me up with God’s divine power.

I bounced up out of bed and went into the kitchen. Startled, my husband asked, “What happened to you?”

“I don’t know,” I said, “but God came.” Today I know it was the power of God that came and entered right through the wall of my abdomen.

I call this the greatest day of my life, because I no longer had to try to be strong. I knew through experience the reality of the power of God. And it is spiritual power, not natural power.

It is the same power that protected Daniel from the lions, the same power that gave the blind man  sight, and the same power that raised Lazarus from the dead. This same power is available to us today.

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you may know… what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe (Ephesians 1:18-19)

Use Your Spiritual Authority

Now I want to ask you to pray for the Body of Christ to wake up and realize that appeasement does not work! We must use our spiritual authority against the lying and evil spirits trying to destroy our countries, including the spirit of fear.

God has given us everything we need to be victorious over Satan and his evil hoards. We can overcome and defeat them through the blood of Jesus, the word of our testimony, and our spiritual authority.

I encourage you to pray for revelation of the spiritual authority God has given believers and for the courage to use it in your life, your home, your church, and your country.
