The Empowered Minister. Pt One

Author: Emode Victor
A Promise For You From Bible Promises:

Topic: The Empowered Minister. Pt One [18/06/2017]

And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach, And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils: Mark 3:14-15. Read: Lk 10:16-12

 According to Merriam Webster dictionary, Power is the ability or right to control people or things. There is no king that reigns without power. Authority is what makes a king. Without power, a king is just a mere title and a figure head on an ordinary chair.

In the kingdom of God, power is of God Almighty. Everything in God's kingdom is held by His power. In doing the work of this great and powerful God, power is needed. The devil and his cohorts are less concerned about how eloquent the ministers are. The devil doesn't have respect for grammar but power. You can be a lexiconist for all he cares, he will never bow to your degree in English. He can't even bow to title let alone grammar from the best university in the world. Jesus knew that the devil respects power before He sent His disciples out for evangelism, He first empowered them. And when they returned, the Bible says, "And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name". Lk 10:17. They said "Through thy name", they did not say through our name or our word, no, He empowered their words which brought devil and his evil works to their knees. In your walk and work for God, you need power to excel.
