We just celebrated Resurrection Day a couple of weeks ago and I need to circle back to reinforce God’s mighty power on display on earth.
Throughout the Bible many of Jesus miracles display His supernatural power . . . From His first recorded act at the wedding in Cana to His ascension into Heaven. Even the woman who had been bleeding for 12 years received an immediate healing when she touched the edge of His cloak. When His disciples said they did not touch Him, “Jesus said, “Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me.” Luke 8:46
At the time of His passing about 3 pm after He had been crucified, God turned off the power switch to the earth. When Jesus gave up His Spirit, darkness swept over the land as the sun stopped shining. It was pitch dark in the middle of the day. It brought on instant chaos: “At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life.” Matthew 27:51-52
Also, “When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely he was the Son of God!” Matthew 27:54
The above scriptures are to show you the power that left the earth when Jesus died. But . . . Don’t worry the Power was turned back on three days later. It is my intention, God willing, to write part two of this blog - Same Power (Lights On) within a week.
As believers, we share Jesus’ incomparably great power that raised Him from the dead. (Look it up in Ephesians 1:18-21). It says, in part, “That power is the same as the mighty strength God the Father exerted when He raised Christ from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms.”
In my third Christian book called Golden Walk: Following Wisdom Into Heaven, Chapter 8 is called Same Power. If you have not done it yet, make TODAY when you get plugged into the Same Power that is there for you.
My prayer is this writing will increase your Faith about Jesus and how we share the power God exerted during His death and Resurrection.
Some things will never change; Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. No one gets to the Father except through Him. God has already prepared the Way, right now He is preparing you.
