E=MC Squared God’s Way


Let’s have some fun, but at the same time, extrapolate  powerful realities.

Eph 1:19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power (dunamis power) to us-ward who believe, according to the working (energy; energia) of his mighty (outward dominion; kratos) power (inner strength; ischus)

Eph 1:19  And what is the exceeding greatness of his (Same) power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, (external dominion power manifested from His internal resident strength)

In the cartoons of Popeye the Sailor Man, Popeye ate a can of spinach, which gave to him inner, inherent or resident strength.

  • This strength was manifested as bulging muscles exercised in outward dominion, or domination, which would wipe out Bluto, his archenemy.
  • God’s power performs in us in the same fashion.

Eph 1:19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power (dunamis power) to us-ward who believe, according to the working (energy; energia) of his mighty (outward dominion; kratos) power (inner strength; ischus)

  • The spinach is the revelation of the Son of God in us.
  • The inner inherent strength that the spinach gave to Popeye is called ischus. We see this word at the end of verse 19.
  • This strength was manifested as bulging muscles exercised in outward dominion, or domination. This is called kratos,
  • God’s dunamis power (or his manifested ability) is defined as the product of the dominion (kratos) that God exerts over His creation, and over all that is not of Him, as a measure of His inner, resident, or inherent strength ( ischus)
  • What Popeye ends up doing to Bluto, is manifested dunamis power, or power in ability.

Eph 1:19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power (dunamis power) to us-ward who believe, according to the working (energy; energia) of his mighty (outward dominion; kratos) power (inner strength; ischus)

So what is the measure of the power that as Christians we have in us?

Look at the Greek translation of verse 19.

  • What is the overcasting and transcending ability ( dunamis) of the same funneled into us who continually believe according to the energy put out as external dominion power (kratos) from his internal resident strength, ( ischus)

Let’s switch gears.

Faith is a law.

Romans 3:27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.

  • A law says that under specific circumstances, specific results will always take place.

I can apply my equation therefore, but mind you, just for fun!

I know that the power of God is not simplified to such an equation, but there is truth to my madness!

(Ischus + kratos X energia ) X (confidence squared) = Dunamis power

Eph 3:12 In whom we have boldness and ACCESS with confidence by the faith of him.

  • CONFIDENCE in the voice of God is the great catalyst of energy that releases the gifts and the power of God.

This is why I have place confidence as (squared), or the quality which works exponentially.

  • The amount of confidence that we have in obeying God, or giving a word, or praying for someone, is directly proportional to the access that we will have to the anointing, the power, the gifts or to the grace of God.
  • Confidence by faith gives us boldness with God and most important of all, ACCESS to the things of the kingdom of God.
  • “ACCESS” in the things of the kingdom of God is the right to obtain or use or take advantage of something (as services or membership).
  • It gives us access to the ischus of God which will manifest as kratos.
  • Five minutes of prayer with absolute confidence in the voice of the Spirit does more than a month of praying in doubt!

Eph 3:12 In whom we have boldness and ACCESS with confidence by the faith of him.

Romans 5:2 By whom also we have ACCESS by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

 (Ischus + kratos X energia ) X (confidence squared) = Dunamis power

When God’s dominion power is functioning or being energized from his inner power by us….. BANG, everything becomes possible or able, and there is the manifestation of DUNAMIS POWER.

  • The great catalyst however is our confidence in the Lord!
  • Any incremental increase in our confidence will exponentially increase ACCESS to the things of the kingdom and to the process of the power of God just which I just described.

 (Ischus + kratos X energia ) X (confidence squared) = Dunamis power.

The Immediacy of Faith (The Non Existence of the Dimension of Time in Faith)
Mat 8:8  The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word ( Greek: a word)) only, and my servant shall be healed.
9  For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go (aorist), and he goeth; ( present ) and to another, Come,( present) and he cometh;( present) and to my servant, Do this (aorist), and he doeth it(present)
10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you,

1.     The “aorist tense” in the Greek, can be compared to our “past tense” in the English. Simply speaking, it describes a past occurrence.  However, the Greek aorist tense is stronger than our English past tense.
2.     This verb tense has the element of “punctiliar action.” This word is defined as a “punctuation” or “punctuation mark” in the succession of time.  Can you see the similarity between punctiliar and punctuation? Whenever we place a question mark, a period, and a comma as we write, we insert one mark with our pens in the sequence of time and go on with our writing. This one single event jotted down in one moment of time, is called punctiliar action.  I call the use of the aorist tense, “punctuation in time.” At the moment that we asked in accordance to the rhema word it was jotted down in history’ progressive timeline as something forevermore marked completed and accomplished.
3.     The aorist tense is also called the “timeless aorist” or the “aorist of immediate consequences.’  The aorist tense has the element of timelessness.  The dimension of time does not exist.  Therefore, in faith, what is believed for in accordance to God’s rhema word simultaneously coincides with, and occurs upon the very exact moment that God gave it to us.  Our asking and the giving by God is one in the same,
4.     This is the timelessness and immediate consequence of the aorist tense.

The Power of the World of The Holy Spirit


The Power of the World of the Spirit

Mat 8:8  The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only  By a word, or by the instrumentality of a word.  The word itself healed the servant), and my servant shall be healed.

Herein we see the power of the world of the Spirit.  The Greek tells us, “speak by a logos word,” not the logos word, but “a” logos word, making it into a specific word with a content of healing, or a rhema word.

“By” a logos word” tells us that it is the word itself is influencing and affecting the situation, and causing the healing.  Jesus did not heal the servant.  The rhema word of God working through Jesus is the one, which healed. This is because the Word spoken by God is always creative. Jesus did only what He saw the Father do.

Jesus’ life was so submerged in the Spirit of God, that He lived in the domain of supernatural faith found within this world.

Secondly, He lived in the world in which all is new and reconciled to God, is available.

The faith released through Him inside the word that He spoke, caused the word itself to heal the servant. The important thing is that He always spoke the Word of the Heavenly Father.

 Hebrews 4:2  For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith ( The word “mixed” is defined as the beating, melting, or tempering together of equal measures of two alloys, the rhema word and faith, to create the element termed as the power of God) in them that heard it

Let us look at a few more examples the rhema word, which is the voice of the Holy Spirit.

Tempered or beat in every instance with an equal measure of faith as found in the domain of the Spirit, to create a “word” itself which heals, or casts out a demon. The Word of God is proportionally effective as our faith.

Matthew 8:16  When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word (By the instrumentality of the word; Jesus did not cast out the devils, but the word of God operating in Him), and healed all that were sick:

Luke 4:32  And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with (Instrumental) power.(His word had the “instrumentality of authority”; The word itself, in the domain of the Spirit, exercises God’s jurisdiction over the works of the enemy in the same way that a state trooper exercises jurisdiction over the interstate highways.

 Luke 7:7  Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word( By a word or by the instrumentality of a word. The word itself healed the servant), and my servant shall be healed.

 Luke 11:20  But if I with the finger of God(By the instrumentality of the Spirit; Jesus did not cast out the devils. The rhema word originated in the Spirit and operating through Jesus, cast out the devil) cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.
