The Electrical Charge Inside The Christian


In the old cartoons of Popeye the sailor man, Popeye would eat a can of spinach, which gave to him inner strength as to his being. This strength was manifested as bulging muscles and an outward dominion, domination, that could subjugate and wipe out Bluto, his archenemy.

God’s power acts in the same fashion. God’s dunamis power is defined as the product of the dominion that God exerts over His creation, and over all that is not of Him, as a measure of His inner strength.

Let’s study it.

Eph  1:19  And what is the exceeding greatness of his power ( DUNAMIS) to us-ward (FUNNELED INTO) who believe ( CONTINUALLY BELIEVING) , according to the working( ENERGY PUT OUT) of his mighty ( INNER SPIRITUAL STRENGTH) power,(EXTERNAL DOMINION)

What is the throwing beyond (homerun) greatness of His dunamis power funneled into us the ones believing according to the energy that is put out as God’s inner spiritual strength is translated into His external dominion.

Dunamis power is the inherent power within every created being, living, and non-living.  God has His own inherent dunamis power. Disease has its own type of dunamis power. Dunamis power is what distinguishes one object from the other, and gives to its life and power.

20 Which he wrought (ENERGIZED) in Christ, when he raised him from the dead (CORPSE), and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

Which He energized (PAST TENSE) in Christ when He raised Him out of a corpse.

The fact that Christ was energized with this power makes Christ Jesus into a charged battery made up of the power which we just described.

Let’s look at this verb from a different position.

Eph 1:20 which is operative (He charged Christ with the energy charge of His power described in the above verse; just as a battery that is charged) in the Christ, rousing Him from among the dead and seating Him at His right hand among the celestials, (You have that battery called Christ Jesus, fully charged inside of you).

My friends, if we have Christ Jesus, we have excessive, surplus, redundant overwhelming power stored in us. Christ was charged with this power, just as a battery has a static electrical charge of stored energy. This charge of energy was produced when the Father raised Christ from a lifeless corpse, and caused Him to sit and reign over the universe with maximum power. We are permanently charged  in our spirit with this measure of charge of stored energy.

The Christian is greater than the energizer bunny.

The definition of God’s DUNAMIS POWER was the energy that was “put out” (in the historical event 2000 years ago), as Christ was raised up from a corpse and made to sit far above in rank, power, and physical distance over all principalities, powers, and might, dominions, and all names which are named both in heaven and upon the earth.

This dunamis power was once and for all energized INTO CHRIST. Because Christ lives in us, so does this DUNAMIS POWER.

However the living reality of this dunamis power, as it is funneled or manifested into us comes in proportion to our faith.

Let us look now in more detail now the properties of the dunamis power that we have resident within us and available to us when we walk in childlike obedience and faith

21 Far above all principality (BEGINNING), and power(AUTHORITY), and might, (DUNAMIS POWER) and dominion( LORDSHIP OR BONDAGE), and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

Far above in rank, power, and physical distance

Every type of principality – Or the beginning of every created thing

We know a principality to be an authoritative demonic being.  However, in the NT, the word principality is also used for a physical beginning, the creation of something, and the root source of something.  The dunamis power of God in Christ, and available to us, is far above in rank and power, above every root problem such as generational sins, curses, judgments, and the root causes and beginnings in diseases.  This is very important to us when we minister.  A simple knowledge of this facet of God’s power will allow us to exercise God’s power with a new level of faith.

Authority: Power of choice; liberty to do as one pleases; jurisdiction such as a state police has over every road within a state; the power of rule and government

Authority is the power of choice; or the liberty to do as one pleases, such as the jurisdiction enjoyed by a state policeman or woman over every road and highway within the state wherein they work.  Cancer, for example has its own authority, in that it can spread at will throughout the human body. However the authority found in Christ’s dunamis power has an authority far above in rank and power over that of cancer. By our words, as they are tempered or alloyed 50/50 with faith, the kingly sway, the power of choice, or the liberty of action to command the cancer where we please, is available to us.

Dunamis power. The inherent power in every created thing that defines it and gives to it its life.

As we spoke earlier on, dunamis power is the inherent power exclusive, to every created thing.  Water, has an inherent power of its own, which gives to it its life, and defines it as water exclusive of any another object.  Cancer has another type of dunamis power.  God has His own dunamis power.  The dunamis or inherent power of Christ resident in us is far in rank and power above the inherent power of any other created object.  Hallelujah!  When we minister, we know that Christ’s inherent power will subordinate, subjugate and destroy the inherent power sustaining the evil that we are ministering against.

The inherent or dunamis power of something gives to it life, glory, and honor.  Cancer, though evil in nature, has its own evil glory and honor.  The word, “to rebuke” is defined as “UPON THE HONOR.”  When we rebuke cancer in JESUS NAME, we are heaping Christ’s power to bear upon the honor of the root source of the cancer, the liberty that it exercises and the very inherent power that makes it up and gives to its life.

Lordship- Someone or something which can bring into bondage.

And every name that identifies something for what it is exclusive of anything else.

22  And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,

All these Christ subordinated and subjected under His feet.  When God gave Christ to be to be head over all of these things to the church; this same power is now available to us.

This is the power that you have permanently stored or charged in you.

It’s released without end or depletion as we obey the voice of the Spirit.

Fit and Knit


Eph 2:19  Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

20And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

21  whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

Fitly framed together: To bring the joints together to speak. To frame together the members of Christ’s body, as parts of a building are brought together.  Joining, cementing, and fitting and raising together a building in all of its parts.

the church becomes the Holy of Holies as all of its members perform to their peak spiritual efficiency by their giftings, ministries and callings

Everyone must participate whether in a stage of being mentored and raised up or actually ministering.

There are no “one man shows” in the Christ’s body. I always call people up to help me minister to others.

To “fitly frame” is the effective operations of all ministries by all members within a local assembly. This causes the full revelation of the Person of Christ, as His revelation is ‘fitted properly together” by the ministries of those in the local body

Ephesians 4:16  From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

A local assembly increases, and grows, as each member within the local body supplies his or her part in accordance to the gifts and ministries, which the Lord has given to each of them.  This is what Paul means in verse sixteen when he employs the term “every joint supplieth.”  By every joint yielding nourishment and working to its peak performance, and by means of every contact, furnished by every believer, this supplies the body of the knowledge of the revealed Christ.

The Greek says: “Every joint of supply”.

“To supply” is defined as furnishing a chorus liberally with all that it needs. Every joint of supply is each and every member of a local body as he or she effectively supplies the revelation of the Son of God through their ministries in order to manifest the Spirit.

By every joint yielding nourishment and working to its peak performance, and by means of every contact, which serves for the supplying of the body of the knowledge of the revealed Christ.

The body produces self-growth and self-building up. This self-growth and building up is limited to the measure of the energy put out by each member of the body as each one supplies to the extent of fully supplying a chorus of singers.

1.    EVERY” parishioner has the responsibility to work within a congregation at his or her “PEAK LEVEL OF SPIRIT LED PERFORMANCE”.  This requires obedience to God, and dedication to the local body. There are no “lone ranger Christians.”

2.    According to the working in due measure of each several part.  Greek paraphrase: The revelation of Christ is limited to the energy (that will make His revelation fully operational) put forth by the quantity and quality of the “measure of supply” through each of the parishioners’ charismatic ministries.

 Col 2:2  That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;

The knitting together comes after every member of the local church has been fit together into a proper building for the Lord through the ministries and callings of every individual.  The believers’ hearts are then knit together in affection.

This oneness causes the fellowship to be united in love, thought, purpose and vision.  In combination with the effectiveness of every member’s ministries and spiritual gifts, it will bring this local body into a full understanding of the accurate knowledge of the mystery of the Godhead and Trinity. This is the full assurance of understanding. This then is the fullness of the glory of God, which should be displayed to the world and into who the whole body as it grows into Christ in all things.

The revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ allows for an assembly to grow up into Him in all things.  The revealed Person of Christ becomes its model, pattern, or example.  Growing up into Christ allows the saints within the church to achieve the same maturity that Christ has in the very thing that they grow fully into Him in.  The church is the only institution that allows for people to grow fully in to Christ in all things.  Growing up into our example makes us like our example.

Thus the church can be seen as an entity that is in a continual process of being fitted together by every one’s ministry and gifts, being joined together in love and intimacy, and growing in to God’s Holy of Holies to manifest His glory within and then without to the world.

Mat 11:12  And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

The kingdom of God is taken by spiritual violence and spiritually strong and forceful people from moment to moment snatch, seize it, and take it away as a precious bounty.

 Rom 12:2  And be not conformed ( don’t follow the schematic drawing or the blueprint of this world system) to this world: but be ye transformed (metamorphosis; or attain to a complete and radical inward change and becoming a totally different individual)  by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove (only when we are radically changed can we then test, approve and possess for ourselves the mature, well pleasing, and good will of God) what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Transformation is the same word used for the metamorphosis of a tadpole to a frog or a caterpillar to a butterfly.  If we do not pay the price to affect that transformation, we will never be free.

 Acts 20:24  But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.

Of no account do I make or hold my life in honor, so that I may complete my course on the horse track on which I am racing upon with joy, and the ministry that I received from the Lord to testify fully and thoroughly of the glad tidings of the grace of God.

 Philippians 3:12  Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after ( BIBLICAL WORD FOR PERSECUTION) , if that I may apprehend  (GRASP AND SEIZE) that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.

I persecute, pursue, and overtake, in hope that I can grasp, seize, and make my own, all of what is contained in what Christ originally grasped and seized me for.

Philippians  3:13  Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,

Therefore, I neglect and no longer care for what is behind me. I stretch myself out and towards, and run swiftly after what is before me. The direction being, the mark of the goal of the high price of unbroken fellowship of Christ’s resurrection life, and the hope of His calling for me.

 1 Timothy 6:19  Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

Seize and grab to, pull in, and make it our own possession.  Eternal life while we are on the earth is the resurrection life.  It does not come magically to us but must be seized and pulled in though obedience.

Matthew 25:1  Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

Matthew 25:3  They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:

Took  from the Greek word to receive. To get, possess, and make my own. The foolish virgins did not obtain, and possessed the fullness of the Spirit.

 Galatians 4:19  My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,

Gal 6:15  For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth(inward strength and force, to have strength to overcome health, ability, capacity) any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. 

Only Christ being formed and birthed in us is of any capacity or ability for us to overcome and get the spiritual victory.

The Consummate Energizer Bunny


God’s Resident Power

Eph  1:19  And what is the exceeding greatness of his power ( DUNAMIS) to us-ward (FUNNELED INTO) who believe ( CONTINUALLY BELIEVING) , according to the working( ENERGY PUT OUT) of his mighty ( INNER SPIRITUAL STRENGTH) power,(EXTERNAL DOMINION)

What is the throwing beyond (homerun) greatness of His dunamis power funneled into us the ones believing according to the energy that is put out as God’s inner spiritual strength is translated into His external dominion.

Dunamis power is the inherent power within every created being, living, and non-living.  God has His own inherent dunamis power. Disease has its own type of dunamis power. Dunamis power is what distinguishes one object from the other, and gives to its life and power.

20 Which he wrought (ENERGIZED) in Christ, when he raised him from the dead (CORPSE), and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

Which He energized (PAST TENSE denoting a completed event) in Christ when He raised Him out of a corpse…..

“Working” in verse nineteen, and “wrought” in verse twenty are the same root word; ENERGY;

“Working, “ is the noun, energy.  “Wrought” is the verb to energize.

The definition of God’s DUNAMIS POWER is the energy that was “put out” (in the historical event 2000 years ago), as Christ was raised up from a corpse and made to sit far above in rank, power, and physical distance over all principalities, powers, and might, dominions, and all names which are named both in heaven and upon the earth.

This measure of dunamis power was once and for all energized and charged INTO CHRIST. Because Christ lives in us, so does this DUNAMIS POWER.  Christ is as the “energizer bunny” fully and forever more energized with this specific charge of energy. Christ charged in this manner dwells in the Christian.

The  living reality of this dunamis power, as it is funneled or manifested into us, comes in proportion to our faith. On other words, to the degree that we believe the Word of God is to the degree that this quality and measure charged energy is funneled into us.

Let us look at the properties of the dunamis power that we have resident within us and available when we walk in childlike obedience and faith

The Properties of God’s Resident Power

 Eph 1: 21  Far above all principality (BEGINNING), and power(AUTHORITY), and might, (DUNAMIS POWER) and dominion( LORDSHIP OR BONDAGE), and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

Far above in rank, power, and physical distance

Every type of principality – Or the beginning of every created thing

A principality is an authoritative demonic being.

However, in the NT, the word principality is also used for a physical beginning or commencement, the creation of something, and the root source of something.

The dunamis power of God in Christ, and charged in us is far above in rank and power, above every root problem such as generational sins, curses, judgments, and the root causes and beginnings in diseases. It is greater than the commencement of any problem. Christ was there with you, before the commencement of anything. Because of this, problems and illnesses can be reversed in your life.

Authority: Is power of choice; liberty to do as one pleases; jurisdiction such as the one which state police has over every road within a state, and the power of rule and government

Authority is the power of choice; or the liberty to do as one pleases, such as the jurisdiction enjoyed by a state policeman.

Cancer, for example has its own authority, in that it can spread at will throughout the human body. However, the authority found in Christ’s dunamis power has an authority far above in rank and power over that of cancer. By our words, as they are tempered with faith, the power of choice, or the liberty of action to command the cancer where we please, is available to us.

Dunamis power: The inherent power in every created thing that defines it and gives to it its life.

Eph 1: 21  Far above all principality (BEGINNING), and power(AUTHORITY), and might, (DUNAMIS POWER) and dominion( LORDSHIP OR BONDAGE), and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

As we taught earlier, dunamis power is the inherent power exclusive, to every created thing.  Water, has an inherent power of its own, which gives to it its life, and describes it as water, exclusive of any another object.

Cancer has another kind of dunamis power.  God has His own dunamis power.  The dunamis or inherent power of Christ resident in us is far in rank and power above the inherent power of any other created object.  Hallelujah!  When we minister, we know that Christ’s inherent power will subordinate, subjugate and destroy the inherent power sustaining the evil that we are ministering against.

The inherent or dunamis power of something gives to it life, glory, and honor.  Cancer, though evil in nature, has its own evil glory and honor.  The word, “to rebuke” is defined as “UPON THE HONOR.”  When we rebuke cancer in JESUS NAME, we are heaping Christ’s power to bear upon the honor of the root source of the cancer and the liberty that it exercises and the very inherent power that makes it up and gives to its life.

Eph 1: 21  Far above all principality (BEGINNING), and power(AUTHORITY), and might, (DUNAMIS POWER) and dominion( LORDSHIP OR BONDAGE), and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

“Dominion” or lordship- Someone or something which can bring into bondage.

“And every name that is named.” And every name that identifies something for what it is exclusive of anything else.

22  And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,

All these Christ subordinated and subjected under His feet.  When God gave Christ to be head over these things to the church; this same power is now available to us.

1 Cor 15:24  Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down ( TO CAUSE SOMETHING TO BECOME NON OPERATIONAL AND NON WORKING SO THAT IT MUST BE JUNKED!!) all rule and all authority and power.

Jesus will give the kingdom to God and the Father only when He shall have rendered totally ineffective (as an old car with an old engine, that finally breaks down and ceases to work any more, and must be junked) every type of principality, commencement and roots sources of all evils, all authorities or jurisdictions which are not from God, and every type of inherent power that gives life, function, glory, and honor to every type of evil.

Here are a few more examples of Christ’s power cutting the spark plug wires, destroying the distributor cap, and junking the inherent life, glory and honor of other things.

Romans 6:6  Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed (NON OPERATIONAL, NON WORKING, AND JUNKED)that henceforth we should not serve sin.

This shows us the death and separation from the sinful nature

1 Corinthians 1:28  And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought (NON OPERATIONAL  NON WORKING AND JUNKED!!) things that are:

God has a way to junk any devise or argument which is not of Him.

1 Corinthians 15:26  The last enemy that shall be destroyed (NON OPERATIONAL, NON WORKING, AND JUNKED!!) is death.

2 Corinthians 3:7  But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away (NON OPERATIONAL,  NON WORKING, AND JUNKED!!)

2 Corinthians 3:11  For if that which is done away (NON OPERATIONAL,  NON WORKING, AND JUNKED!!) was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.

Hebrews 2:14  Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy (NON OPERATIONAL,  NON WORKING, AND JUNKED!!) him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

God Answers The Atheist


I recently got into a conversation with a gentleman who is was a deep agnostic bordering on atheism.

He was a mathematics professor in a university.

I asked him, what it would take for him to believe. He told me that God, or if there is a God, would have to show him concrete and tangible proof of Himself.

We had been having Holy Ghost meetings. To my surprise, this man not only came to the meeting, but hung out with us way before the meeting began.

Jesus never chased anybody who did not want Him. Neither do I.

From the commencement of the meeting God came in with a tremendous bang of healing power.  In a matter of minutes many were on the floor visibly “under the influence” of God’s sweet love, if you know what I mean.

I prayed for everybody, except this man, wishing to respect his atheist’s views.

My beloved wife Mary touched me on the shoulder and asked me, “Are you not going to pray for him?”  I fumbled and said to her, “Oh, I did not think that he wanted prayer.”

I turned to the gentleman and asked, “Do you want me to pray for you?”  “Yes”, he told me.

I lifted him up from his chair and extended my hand toward him, being careful not to touch him.

The visible glory of God came upon this man as he stood with eyes closed. For almost ten minutes he stood there with his eyes shut.  I prayed, “Lord, give him the undisputable concrete proof of You that he needs! “I moved on to the next person but kept on glancing towards him. When he opened them, and his and mine met, he had a big smile on his face. What occurred, I have no idea.

Ten minutes later I had healing line of four people.  As I prayed, the man at the end of the line about 10 feet away, suddenly collapsed under the power of God with no one to catch him.

My atheist friend who had been comfortably sitting, lunged from the couch in a desperate effort to catch him. He caught the man and both fell on the floor with the man squarely on top of my atheist friend, in one big heap.

My atheist friend looked at me sprawled on the ground, a body on top of him. He had a big grin on his face.

I do not know if this was his concrete proof or not. Surely God is great and has a great sense of humor, though.

The Chronicles of Ephesians: Spiritual Gifts


God’s Energy in Dunamis Power

God’s energy is always fully effective and fully flowing in us.

Ephesians 1:11  In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who IS POWERFULLY ENERGIZING all things after the counsel of his own will:

 1 Cor 12:11  But all these worketh is POWERFULLY ENERGIZING that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing (DISTRIBUTING) to every man severally as he will (COUNSELS)

 Ephesians 3:7  Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the ( ENERGY)of his power.

Colossians 1:29  Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his POWERFUL ENERGY which IS ENERGIZED  in me AS GOD’S POWER OR ABILITY.

His energizing comes in proportion to us walking in His will and is given for us to carry out His will.

The message of universalism or Rob Bell’s message creates Christians whose want to do God’s will is not there since everybody will get saved at the end.

Spiritual gifts are used to take portions of God’s inheritance that we now know as His riches, energize them by means of His dunamis power, and make them visible as riches in the mode of glory through the physical bodies of His saints.

Every saint has spiritual gifts and must find out what they are. Spiritual gifts is what makes the invisible God, visible.

Every believer represents a portion of God’s land or kingdom in the midst of an evil world, where God rules unencumbered and displays His glory effectively through the saint through the means of spiritual gifts as they are powerfully energized through His operations.

 1 Cor 12:4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

 5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

 6And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh (ENERGIZES) all in all.

·  The Motivational Aspect of the Gifts.

 Romans 12:6 Having then charismatic gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion (Greek “corresponding to the word) of faith;(belonging to faith)

Prophecy is faith in one of its manifestation, this manifestation being in the “the world belonging to faith, or which is produced in the spirit as an expression of faith.

Faith, which produces a rhema word, or the voice of the Holy Spirit,  is the FAITH OF GOD working in us.

The rhema word is a translation of God’s faith into a medium that we can discern, minister externally, and understand.

When we minister the rhema word we are ministering the faith that God Himself has.

Prophecy is God’s faith in the verbal expression of His rhema word, or the voice of the Holy Spirit.  Therefore, prophecy is faith, and must be given by faith.

Every spiritual gift is a manifestation of the faith of God. The more that we use them the more that we function in God’s faith.

7  Or ministry, (in the world of ministry) or he that teacheth, in the world of the teaching;

 8  Or he that exhorteth, in the world of exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

Mystery (How We Must Minister)

 1 Cor 2:7  But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

We are uttering (PROPHETICALLY) God’s wisdom (WILL, WAYS & TIMING) in the sphere of a mystery or with a mystery.

We are dead, and our lives are hid in a mystery state with God.

Our walk in the Spirit allows us to understand the peculiars of the movements, dispositions, and plans of the Holy Spirit within us.  We cannot search out, the mysteries of God in us, but they are revealed by us as we walk in the Spirit.

As they are revealed through us knowledge and understanding is then given. This is called revelation.

We minister out of God’s mysteries within us because our lives now shrouded and hidden with Christ are hid with Him who Himself lives in a mystery form.

 1 Cor 2:13  Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

Not taught in words of human wisdom, but comparing and compounding the spiritual things revealed by God in our spirits with appropriate outward spiritual forms and expressions. This is why Hoy Spirit manifestations are not just good, but important.

1 Cor 13:9  For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

 Out of a portion we know, and out of that portion we must prophesy leading to more knowing and more prophecy. (From faith into faith).

This is why we must continually step out in faith by the voice of the Holy Spirit, because God functions from faith to faith.

 1 Cor 3:12  For now we see through a glass, darkly ( ainigma); but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

For we all see through a mirror reflecting an enigma.

Enigma: One that is puzzling, ambiguous, or inexplicable. 2. A perplexing speech or text; a riddle. The Free Dictionary

Ephesians 1:6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

  Ephesians 1:7  In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

 God’s labor, termed as grace takes from His inheritance in us, which is His fullness, reveals it from its mystery form and displays it in segments through us as His riches.

 1 Cor 12:6  And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.

Different riches are manifested through the different operations of God.  The operations are effective displays of God’s power through the believer to effectively transfer the riches from inside the believer to the external world in accordance to the specific ministerial circumstances.

The transferred riches, which inside the believer were part of God’s inheritance, not empowered externally by the operations of God are made visible as the glory of God.

Christ’s grace or inward labor must display itself outwardly through the believer’s body as glory.

Praise to God is extracted by this revealed glory in the sphere of the saints.

8 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;

Wisdom has to do with God’s will, ways, and timing.  Prudence is carrying out this wisdom “in the Spirit.” God’s labor in us produces His will, His ways, and timing.  Prudence causes us to walk step by step in Christ’s labor.  This is termed to walk in the Spirit.

  Gal 5:25  If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

  Walk is the word for a military march. If we claim to live in the Spirit, we are ordered to walk in a military march after the voice of the Holy Spirit.

The normal mode of God’s labor in us as we walk in prudence is to produce abundance and superabundance.

In proportion to how we follow Christ’s labor in us in wisdom and prudence is the same proportion we will live in the realm of  “SPIRITUAL AND SOMETIMES MATERIAL” abundance and superabundance.

This is the normal mode of God’s operation.

The Battle: The Revelation of Christ


2 Cor 13:3  Since ye seek a proof of Christ speaking in me, which to you-ward is not weak, but is mighty in you.

2 Cor 13:3 tells us that The Christ which has been given to live within us, is always mighty and powerful in ability.  His might and ability becomes a reality in proportion to His revelation.

4  For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.

The Greek further tells us in verse four, that in the same way that a tree lives from its roots as they get nutrients found in the soil, we must live our lives rooted in the power of God, as it is released in proportion to the revelation of Christ.

 Philip 3:21  Who shall change our lowly body, that it may be fashioned like his glorious body, according to the working by which he is able even to subdue all things to himself.

Another vital treasure dwelling within Christ, and one, which we will refer to in the rest of this study, is “the Christ whom subdues all things to Himself.”

To subdue, is a military term comparable to a general with an army in perfect submission, hierarchy, and order, beneath him.

One of the most important desires of Christ is to subdue all that is not of Him in this military and hierarchical order. The verses immediately below all use the very same Greek word found for the subduing in Philippians 3:21; thus showing a vital part of the mind of God towards us in the finished work of Christ.

1 Corinthians 15:27  For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.

1 Corinthians 15:28  And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

 Ephesians 1:22  And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,

Eph 6:10  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power (dominion) of his might (inner strength).

Christ ability to subdue is an absolute necessity for you, since it is the work of Christ to set us free.

Subduing however, can also have a very negative connotation.  Dictators, such as Hitler, Castro, and others, focused their whole lives on the subduing of people.

Christ, likewise, focuses much of His work in subduing, but only of things that are evil and harmful to humanity.

In the case of evil dictators, the subduing of people is called dominating, or exercising dominion over them. This evil exercise of dominion accomplishes a power as it is carried out, called the power of dominion or domination, in proportion to the strength of the dictator.

In Eph 6:10 we find this exact principle at work.  Translated for us it commands us to be empowered in the Lord and in the domination or dominion exerted by His strength.

This dominion or domination is what gives the Lord the ability to subdue all things unto Himelf.

Are we beginning to get the picture?  The revelation of Christ within us, triggered by the law of the cross through our obedience, reveals the Christ who dominates and subdues all, thus setting us free!

Eph 3:16  That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened(dominion) with might (dunamis power) by his Spirit in the inner man;

Greek: That God’s power deposited into your inner man through the Holy Spirit will be seen or translated as Christ’s dominion within you.

The results of this subduing or dominion whisks us right into verse seventeen.

17  That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

To dwell, is defined as a inhabitant being in comfortable control of his home, thus allowing him to live in the peace and authority which has been purchased through that control.

Christ desires to dwell in this very fashion within our hearts.  He can only do so in believers that fully obey Him, allowing “the Christ that dominates and subdues all evil” to set them free, so that He may dwell and exercise the full authority of the kingdom, through them.

Eph 1:19  And what is the exceeding greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his mighty( inward strength) power,(outward dominion)

The exceeding greatness of this power is funneled into those who continuously believe.  The inward strength of God, which is displayed as His outward dominion, is translated as the exceeding greatness of His power, which is funneled into the believer. This funneling is limited to the continual believing of the Christian, which in turn is defined as the uncompromising moment-by-moment obedience to God’s rhema word.

20  Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

He wrought: This is very powerful!

The Greek perfect tense is used with this verb.  As we know, the Greek perfect tense is an accomplished event in history, having an eternal impact.

Which He wrought, can be defined, as the working through, or the accomplishing of something with absolute effectiveness, resulting in its becoming fully operational.

The exceeding greatness of God’s power; the translation of the dominion of the strength found within God, is fully and eternally operational inside the Person of His Son!  This very Christ lives within us, beloved!

The effective and full operation of this dominating or subduing power can be proved in that Christ sat down at the right hand of the Father after His resurrection.  One who sits down can only do so after conquering all; it is the position of rest.

This is why we always see Christ sitting down in the parables of His kingdom and glory.  His sitting down is the result of His absolute victories, thus allowing for the release of His glory through the works of the kingdom

Matthew 8:11  And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 19:28  And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Matthew 26:64  Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

Herein is another aspect of God’s dominion fully operational within Christ, in that He was raised FAR IN DISTANCE above all that is opposed to Him.

22  And put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,

The full and effective operation of the exceeding greatness of God’s power inside of Christ, is not only witnessed that in all things to Christ, He rose far above them in physical distance, but they are now likewise subdued in a military fashion under His feet.

Finally and most important, THIS VERY CHRIST which has the full operation of the exceeding greatness of God’s power resident within Him, has been given to live within us!

23  Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

Greek: Fills all things in all people.

To fill all things in all people, is the fullness of Christ’s revelation, which reveals the Christ who has the full operation of God’s dominating power, which sets us free!

Will It Be God’s Power or Harry Potter’s Magic?


This entry is re post! of an event in 2011.

I continue my qualm with those who believe that spiritual gifts are not for today.

Or with who say that God’s power is offensive to the seeker and even apologize for it.

Yesterday, Heartbeat of Miami hosted a youth event at our church.

“Sex, Truth, Lies behind the Scenes,” was a hard-hitting intro to the dangers of premarital sex and abortion. As a pastor, I was thrilled to see more than two hundred people in attendance, most of them teens and young adults.

After the altar call, many came up for prayer. I ended up ministering to about 12 kids. The majority, though attending churches, had never been met by God’s amazing power.

It is my habit to do my best not to touch anybody. I certainly am very sensitive about being faulted with pushing people down.

I love to see God do His work, without my help. If I do touch, its slight, so that there can be a point of transmission.

One boy, crumbled to the floor weeping as the Holy Spirit overwhelmed him. It was breath taking.

A sixteen year old girl, shaking like a caterpillar in an earthquake, was magically  pulled down,  “Hey, what’s going on…what happened?”, she exclaimed!

Another teen ogling at the kids falling out ran to me. ”Hey, I want to fall.”

Shaking like a leaf on a windy day, she slumped into the arms of a friend.

I asked, “Do you want more?” “Yeah”, she said, eyes and mouth wide opened.

Then there were two young ladies, staggering backwards by God’s power, never touched by me. Perplexed and amazed, big grins on their faces, they hugged me. I asked if they had ever experienced “The Power.” Both said no.

My night concluded with a girl who wants to be a lawyer. God read her mail through my prophecies. I shook her hand, but she had questions and would not leave.

“How are you so in touch with the Holy Spirit that you can stretch out your hand and people fall?” She asked. “How do you do that?” She was so hungry.

I told her that in part, it comes by revelation knowledge of God’s word as you study it.

I detailed  how God had taught me NT Greek and the importance of using the Strong’s Concordance. Then, to my surprise, she said that she had seen a Strong’s Concordance.

I located a copy in the church, sat down and taught her how to use it. At that instance her dad came. I taught him too!  Both were grateful and amazed.

We, as pastors, do a disservice in prohibiting God’s glory into our services.

Kids everywhere are hungry for the supernatural. Church and unchurched alike! Everybody is looking for the glory. Everybody is looking for the power.

We are going to have to make a choice. We will either gain this generation to God’s glory as God pleasers, or lose them to the magic of Harry Potter as men pleasers.  Either way they will go to where the power is.

Let’s face it. Church without it, can be downright boring.

The “Sex, Truth, Lies behind the Scenes,” event.
