“The Awesome Power Of Christ”
It is written God himself says in the last days he will speak to his people by his Son! Throughout many generations God spoke through his holy prophet’s and now by his Son through the Holy Spirit in his people moved to speak his message to mankind. “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the riht hand of the majesty on high”.(Hebrews 1:1-3).
It is by Gods infinite wisdom he has allowed those who fear and reverence him to rejoice and realize that even if Christ were angry a small amount he would have the ability that we could perish. “Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little, Blessed are all they that put their trust in him”.(Psalm 2:6,7,10-12).
Paul writes as he is about to depart that it is by the authority of the Lord that helps us to edify one another, and that we should live in peace and be of one mind. “Since ye seek a proof of Christ speaking in me, which to youward is not weak, but is mighty in you. For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God toward you. Therefore I write these things being absent, lest being present I should use sharpness, according to the power which the Lord hath given me to edification, and not to destruction. Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace: and the God of love and peace shall be with you”.(2 Corinthians 13:3,4,10,11).
All power is placed in Christ, and it is by his mighty name that every knee shall bow before him! “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth”.(Philippians 2:9,10).
