Power To Be A Son Of God Indeed by Kei144(m): 8:12pm On Feb 21
1Co. 2:4 My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power,
1Co. 2:5 so that your faith might not rest on men’s wisdom, but on God’s power.

1Co. 4:19 But I will come to you very soon, if the Lord is willing, and then I will find out not only how these arrogant people are talking, but what power they have.
1Co. 4:20 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power.

As we move into the end times, it is important that we move from mere-talk Christianity to Christianity that visibly demonstrates the power of God. In Re. 3:10, the Lord Jesus Christ talks about the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth. Mere-talk Christianity cannot survive the coming great trial; many “born again” Christians will fall away from faith in Jesus Christ (Mt. 24:10). The great worldwide trial will happen as a result of a surge in evil caused by sudden relocation of Satan and all his angels from the second heaven to planet earth (Re. 12:7-9). During the ensuing trial, mere-talk Christianity does not stand a chance. Only the ability to manifest the power of God can make a Christian to prevail against tremendous onslaught of evil. Before Satan and all his angels make the world their permanent abode, manifestation of the sons of God will already be in progress. This message has come to make you to begin to manifest as a son of God.

There are prophetic indications that we are very close to the great worldwide trial that will select the Christians that will make the rapture. Now is the time to build up our spiritual muscles, so that we shall overcome in the days of great evil.

Ep. 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
Ep. 6:11 Put on the full armour of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
Ep. 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Ep. 6:13 Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

How does a Christian develop divine strength and operate in the power of God?

Jn. 1:12 (KJV) But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.

Who is the “he” and “him” in Jn. 1:12? The common answer is Jesus Christ. But in reality Jesus does not appear in John chapter 1 until verse 14, where the word becomes flesh. The he in 1:12 is the Word—words that came out of the mouth of God. In Jn. 1:14 the Word became flesh and this does not mean that the Word materialized as the man Jesus, but rather that the word possessed the man Jesus and Jesus became a vessel for the manifestation of the Word.

Jn. 1:12 is basically saying that as many as allow themselves to be possessed by words that came out of the mouth of God, to them God gives power to manifest as sons of God. That is actually what happened to Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus overcame Satan during the temptation in the desert (Mt. 4:3-11) by continually speaking words of God and after that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with divine power (Ac. 10:38). How does a Christian allow the Word to possess her/him? It is simply by continually speaking words that came out of the mouth of God. Note that it is not every word in the Bible that constitutes the Word; only words that came out of the mouth God. When a Christian overcomes sin by continually speaking words of God, God will anoint her/him with power.

Is. 55:10 As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
Is. 55:11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

Jn. 3:34 For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit.

In Is. 55:11, God says that His word cannot return to Him without accomplishing what it says. In Jn. 3:34, Jesus Christ says that as a person sent by God continues to speak words of God, God continues to give that person the Spirit. In Jn. 3:34 we therefore see how to grow in anointing; by continually speaking words that came out of the mouth of God. Note that this works only for a person sent by God. Who are the people sent by God? See Jn. 20:21. Everyone that has been baptized into Jesus Christ in water and in the Spirit is God’s representative in the world and so has been sent by God. The best way to speak words of God is to return God’s words to Him, thereby fulfilling Is. 55:11. When a Christian returns God’s word to Him, God gives her/him the Spirit and the Spirit accomplishes what the word says in the life of the Christian.

An experiment

Mt. 5:48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Mt. 22:37 Jesus replied: “`Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’
Mt. 22:38 This is the first and greatest commandment.
Mt. 22:39 And the second is like it: `Love your neighbour as yourself.’
Mt. 22:40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Lk. 6:31 Do to others as you would have them do to you.

Above shows some words of God. Below I show how I return the words above to God.

By your grace, Holy Father God Almighty, I shall be perfect, even as you, our heavenly father are perfect. I shall be holy and blameless. In the name of Jesus Christ.

By your grace, glorious Father God, I will always love you with all my heart and with all my soul and with all my mind and with all my strength. I shall love my neighbor as I love myself. In the name of Jesus Christ.

By your grace everlasting Father God, I shall do to others as I would have them do to me.

The experiment is to continually return those words to God just as I normally do, every morning and evening. Continue to return God’s words to Him as shown above and you will see the righteousness of God building up in you. You will easily overcome sin. Expand your confession of God’s words by adding more words that came out of the mouth of God to the above example. Before long, you will begin to operate in the power of God.
