The Divine Power of God
Have you ever wondered how someone could just turn a piece of rod in to a snake, or have you ever thought how a snake could be turned in to a stick, or have you ever seen a magician who turned a piece of stone in to a bird, this is all divinity.
Divinity means supernatural, it means, operating in a realm of power. The bible helps us to know that God is divine and throughout the study of the bible, His divinity is all what we read about, how He raised men and women and filled them with His divine power to cause changes in the lives of people, and how this power changed the lives of many. When you study the book of Exodus carefully, you will realize that God is a supernatural being, and because He wants to free His children, He needed someone who could portray His Divine life, and that was why He instructed Moses and Aaron to show all His signs to Pharaoh, so Pharaoh would let His children go, but Pharaoh refused, but instead, the bible recorded that Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers, and the magicians of Israel, so they did in like manners, with their enchantments, for they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents, but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rod. This shows how powerful God is, and He can also transfer this Divine power to His children, though when you read further, you will notice that Pharaoh wanted to prove that he also have magicians that can do the same act, but instead of the magicians displaying their magical power the bible said, as they turned their rod also to snakes, Moses snake swallowed up their snakes,
In the book if Genesis 1 from vs 1 – 2, the bible recorded that God created the heavens and the earth, and every living creature on the face of the earth. This was Gods divine power creating the earth, and you probably know that only a divine power can create the whole world, and then create light and darkness and then separate light from darkness. When you read further the book of Genesis, God created everything in the world, by His supernatural power. Also, Looking at the book of Exodus from chapter 14 vs 9, you will realize that God kept showing His Divinity through Moses to Pharaoh, to the extent that Pharaoh decided to free the children of Isreal, and when you read further the book of Exodus, the bible recorded while Pharoah sent his horse men and army to pushue after the children of Isreal, God gave instruction to Moses telling the children of Isreal to move forward and the children of Israel moved forward, and obeyed God despite the Egyptians pushuing after them and then Moses stretched out the rod, as instructed by God, and then the sea parted and the children of Israel passed on dry ground. This was Gods divine power, His supernatural power that caused victory to the children of Israel.
God is divine, He operate from the realm of divinity, that is why we must be Gods children so we can use His divine power to save in the midst of daring situation, the divine power of God also moves down to the new testament when the bible talked about Jesus, Jesus Christ was Gods divine power personified, Jesus Christ demonstrated Gods supernatural power throughout his reign. The bible recorded that Jesus at a tender age was found sited with teachers and doctors, both hearing them and asking them questions, and all that heard him were astonished at his understanding. Now Jesus at a tender age siting with doctors and teachers was only occastrated by God, these teachers and doctors were only ready to listen to him because of Gods divinity that flows through him, they knew that he had the supernatural power of God working on the inside of him, and also,the story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead let us to know that Gods divine power was working in the life of Jesus, Jesus had the supernatural power of God to raise the dead, and even when he was told by Martha that the body of Lazarus stinketh, Jesus said to her, if only she would believe, she would see the glory of God, the bible said that Jesus cried with a loud voice Lazarus come forth, and Lazarus came forth. All these were signs of divinity.
The scripture showed how the divine power of God rose Jesus from the dead, the bible recorded that a strong wind came and the keepers of the grave fell and became as dead men, without the divine power of God, this wouldn’t have happened, but because Gods power was present, and in order to fulfill scripture, and then Jesus was risen from the grave. How much can be said of Gods divine power, in the life of men. God transfer His divine power to several of His teachers and Prophets. The bible talked about the several teachers and Prophets that God gave His divine power, they prophesied concerning certain events or matters, and all came to pass because of the divine power of God that was with them.
That is why Prophet Isaiah prophesied in Isaiah 53 vs 1
Who hath believed our report? And to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed. Now Isaiah had Prophesied through Gods divine power, not knowing what he was actually saying, and that was why in this chapter, he said who hath believed our report and to whom is the arm of the lord revealed, inorderwards, all of these Prophesies, who am I telling, because he was tired of Prophesying, because it looked like it wasn’t going to happen, but guess what, all of his Prophesies came to pass. Now when you study in the beginning part of the book of Isaiah the bible said he Prophesied concerning Jesus, he said; For unto us a child is born, and unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulders, and he shall be called wonderful counselor, the mighty God, the everlasting father, the prince of peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with Judgement and with Justice from henceforth even forever. Now Isaiah Prophesied this through God’s divine power concerning Jesus, and it all came to pass, this was because God extended His supernatural power to him, Gods divine power can be made available for us today, because that is His desire, He wants to transfer His divinity to His children that trust Him with the whole of their hearth, this was the case with the teachers and Prophets of old, He willingly transfer His power to them, because of their belief in Him, this is exactly what He wants to do for us. Today, Gods divine power is what we need to rectify every problem that we are faced with, because God is power, and His divine power is what we need in our everyday lives.
The sctipture recorded that Peter and John went up together into the temple to pray, and they met a lame man who was lame from his mother’s womb, and who stayed daily at the gate called beautuful to ask alms of them that entered into the temple; and when he saw Peter and John about to go into the temple, and he looked at them hoping to receive gift from them, and Peter fastening his eyes on him with John, said, look on us. And he looked at them expecting to receive something from them. Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. And he stood up and walked, and entering with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God: And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonders and amazement at that which had happened unto him.
This scripture helps us to know the complete manifestation of the divine power of God working in the life of a man, God is divine, and man can only do wonders when they realize Gods divine power in them, this was the case with peter and John, God release His divine power in to their lives, and that was why they were able to heal the man at the gate called beautiful. And when you study the bible further, you will realize that they did many more miracles, and Gods divinity kept flowing through them, any sick person they touched were healed, and God was with them to perfect their works with signs and wonders. God is a supernatural God, and it is His desire for His children to operate from the realm of the supernatural. Today, we can be the man or woman that God wants us to become, we can live a life of power and divinity, because it is Gods desire for us, He wants us to crave for that divine life, this is His wish for us, to live a life full of power so we can meet the goals and targets that He has set for us to achieve, and as we do, our lives will become an epitome of Gods grace.
