Now Is The Time For The Demonstration Of God’s Power

What is going to bring the world back to God? It’s not in the enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in the demonstration of the spirit and of power (1Corinthians 2:4,5). Wherever the spirit is there is power. Notice in Acts 6:5 it says Stephen was full of faith and the Holy Ghost and in Acts 6:8 it says Stephen was full of faith and power. And with faith and power he did great wonders and signs among the people. Not just wonders and miracles but great wonders and miracles. And Jesus said you would receive power after the Holy Ghost comes upon you (Acts 1:8). Are you noticing the connection between the Holy Ghost and power. God’s trying to show you something. Wherever the Holy Spirit is there is power. You have power on the inside of you, I think sometimes we loose sight of that. And that power is for demonstration. We’ve been trying to reason people into the kingdom of God, when are you going to demonstrate the power of God. Not to be a big shot but for the glory of God. Like Elijah did in 1Kings 18:21-39 when he called fire down from heaven. The people were worshipping another God, Baal. So Elijah said you build an alter and call upon your God and I will call upon my God and whicheverone answers let him be God. Notice he didn’t do it to be a big shot but for the glory of God. And when the fire fell all that worshipped Baal then worshipped God. Listen, the Bible says “We walk by faith and not by sight” (2Corinthians 5:7). Well, then I think it a safe assumption to say the world walks by sight and not by faith. The world is tired of hearing about how powerful God is they want to see something. When a miracle took place people came to God by the hundreds and even the thousands (Acts 5:12-14). The Bible says those that know their God would be strong and do exploits (Daniel 11:32). It’s time to demonstrate God’s power. When Jesus walked the earth He demonstrated God’s power regularly. Jesus is not here in the flesh but we have his name for the same demonstrations of power (Acts 4:29,30). His name will do the same works (Acts 3:16). Notice those things are done by his name. Jesus is the head of all power (Colossians 2:10) and he wants to work his power through you. Notice when Jesus sent out the disciples he said heal the sick, cleanse the lepords, raise the dead, cast out devils in other words demonstrate the power of God. In the words of that hit country song- Let’s give them something to talk about.
