RELIGION: THE POWER AND THE GLORY

This book is for believers. It is for people whose lives are in danger, who need a quick solution and have no time for academic arguments and theories. So if you want the principles set forth herein to work for you, turn to Jesus first, repent of your sins, call upon Jesus to save you, submit your life to him and begin to apply the principles set out here. The results will amaze you. If you grasp what the Holy Spirit is about to reveal, your life will turn around in less than two hours, which is the time it takes you to read this.
Many of us Christian believers are used to reciting this: “For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever, Amen.”
But do you know what it really means? Understanding this scripture can give you the key that will open the door to the prosperity, abundance, good health, happy relationships and business success that God has for you as a child of God.
I have often heard people asking me, “Pastor, if I am a child of God, why am I suffering?”
There is nothing wrong with you child of God. What you are lacking simply is the wisdom that only God can provide. It’s not even your fault. Scripture says, “My people perish because of lack of knowledge”. So be patient and acknowledge your ignorance. turn that into an action plan to seek knowledge.
I know what you are thinking. You are saying, “Man of God I have read the Bible from cover to cover. So how can you say I am ignorant?” There is a big difference between knowing the words written in the Bible and having the wisdom, knowledge and understanding of the POWER behind those words. Many believers experience their greatest miracles soon after being born again. Do you know why? It is because you are achild in the spirit and a child is easier to teach because a child usually takes what it is taught as truth and does not question everything like an older person.
One of the reasons we do not receive the miracles of God or even see his signs and wonders is that we are rooted in religion or religious traditions. We want to question everything. God says, “My ways are not your ways. As the heaven is higher than the earth so are my ways higher than your ways”. Scripture further says the things that God has given us to understand are for us and our children. The rest are for the Lord.
What we need is a simple faith, like that of the blind man who was healed by Jesus. Read the story in John 9. After this blind man’s eyes were opened, sinners took him to task to explain who Jesus was. He replied: “Whether he is a sinner or not, I don’t know. One thing I know, that though I was blind, now I see.”
All I’m saying is, God has given you the Holy Spirit to help you understand the things that you need for your own miracle to happen. Don’t compare yourself to others because you are unique. God created you as yourself. He has a mission for you and he will give you the power to accomplish it. Don’t listen to detractors who say things like, “If God cares why are there poor people in the world, why is there war, why is the world suffering?”
Focus on your own tasks, complete them and God will bless you.
There are three things I want to teach quickly before we go out into the world to exercise our faith. Apostle James says faith without action is dead.
Deuteronomy 8: 18 says: “You shall remember the Lord your God for it is he who gives you POWER to get wealth…”
I don’t have to tell you why you need wealth or money. We operate in an environment where without money you cannot achieve much for God. The other reason is that wealth is scarce. There are more poor people than rich ones in the world. Believe God for wealth because His word says the kingdom shall be established through prosperity. For us to go out into the world and preach and be effective we need money for transportation, resources and the facilities that we need to use.
For the power of God to begin to operate in your life you need to believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that God sent Him to die for you on the cross, that he rose on the third day and is sitting at the right hand of the father.
John 1: 12 says: “But to all who received Him, who believed in His name He gave POWER to BECOME the CHILDREN of God.”
Hallelujah! We are children of the Most High God when we turn away from our sins and believe in Him. We are the royal priesthood.
We exercise our power through the Holy Spirit who was promised by Jesus to be our counsellor and our helper.
Acts 1: 8 – “But you shall receive POWER when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and to the end of the earth. God gives us POWER so that we can proclaim His goodness to all mankind. Have a vision to be blessed by God abundantly so that you can tell others about it. Speak of the GLORY of his KINGDOM. Tell of His POWER when He blesses you. (See Psalms 145: 10-11).
