A Promise For You From Bible Promises: [14/07/2016]
Topic: The Empowered Word
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Acts 1:8. Read: 1 Cor 4:20
The Holy Spirit is the agent of power in the Kingdom of God. When He comes upon a believer, He empowers him/her to do extraordinary things in this ordinary world. When the Holy Spirit came upon Simon Peter on the day of Pentecost, he became another man entirely, just a sermon won about 3000 souls. Acts 2. When the double portion of anointing came upon Elisha, just a word created two live bears which destroyed 42 children. 2 Kings 2. It takes empowered word to produce results. In this end time, the need for empowerment in the Church of God cannot be overemphasised due to the continuous havoc wrecked by the enemies of the Cross.
The word of God is God Himself which makes it powerful, but it can only be powerful in the mouth of the righteous. As powerful as the word is, it's rendered powerless in the mouth of the unrighteous due to a life of sin. Just as righteousness empowers, unrighteousness erodes it effect. When the word in your mouth is empowered, you become a master in the affairs of life. There is power in the word of God, it can only work in your life if you're His child. Power will put the Church in command in this end time, if you want to be a triumphant soldier of the Cross in this end time, you need the power of the Holy Ghost. Power of God is available, can you pay the price?
*Anybody can preach, power makes the difference. Ask God for His empowerment
