Greetings friends a new listeners and welcome to this program and the RG hiking ministry. Karen not thanking you for joining us today because we know that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

Today's message by my father, brother Hardy is what is the exceeding greatness of God's power. Maybe you know the answer or maybe you're not sure either way. I believe you will learn something new today as you listen to this dynamic message.

What is the exceeding greatness of God's power. The Lord said to the people how great are you in your life. That's the whole wall. What color guard to go Georgia go to Carol what form God you go to shortly really really really different to remotely article a thermochemical monkey hallelujah help crave history. What can we do for you this early situation in your life that God can't take care love. Please, please, all animals every day you will survive and sign the the warm. We were sitting in the corner Walsh shower over Sharon's in the little Robin went there and all the social stories of many of the world's former hell was Metro Jesus said to his people in Israel when he said, consider the lowly of the field since Solomon which is the you're probably of riches wasn't a Raiders watches the sun look at the Spyro God takes care of them and said to them, all of little faith. If you ever read my message on the definition of faith little favors the same asbecause you got such little saving the user to say human when Jesus is asleep on the boat and the devil brought that storm down through Hadrian's travel and boat he was going to try only when these men lived on that river.

They live on the Sea of Galilee. They may deliver. They knew all about what it was such a storm that is scattered on Jesus Noster Tolerance when Jesus was on board, can you when the Lord's in your life, what you have done is listen to the devil instead of the word of God wanted test comes to you read the Scriptures concerning your test that you're going through, load them up load yourself all reason why people have trouble is they don't have the I know what I want to do when the enemy of tax situations. I know exactly what I want to do.

I would take my burden to the Lord and leave it there like like the salsa, have a big talk with Jesus, not a little one, tell them all about it, they say a man I know what I'm going to do. I want to trust in the Lord anybody order be able to serve God and praising. If you go to the cupboard. It's not there.

Like mother Hubbard's cover got not a lot of money in your checkbook and all your bills were paid why if you can believe God and praise God, then the time when bad things come times of faith. That's why you gave us faith so that we could use that in our faith will make us and overcome faith can overcome anything close. Faith is an attribute of God saying man.

How would you like to step out in the beginning into advanced nothingness out there was nothing in the beginning with God. Was not that what God the Spirit of God and the word of God and God, to a plan of creation. You have the vote of the family and the father and the son and the Holy Ghost sold submit we can do it and there was nothing but the Godhead in the plan.

He stepped out of eternity with faith in his plan not listed. I get this picture semi-severe while he was God. You see he had never done anything as God. Chris was the beginning of creation. Nothing was created.

He never created everything.

How does he know is can do it. We don't have it so we got a Bible shown us everything God has done to people certain circumstances like us but you say were he had faith in his ability. God, faith in the word of God and the ability of God, they say you may have supplied my little need what the world so that you know what said in the Bible all the leaves of all the nations in its would get 3 billion people now maybe for overnight said to his unlimited supply centers or drop what on the bucket you ever see a cold thing in the little truck runs down… Just drop that don't mean nothing. You have tax liability to do miracles not in the least when the Holy Ghost really open up the first chapter of Ephesians to me and to me that's the greatest book on God's demonstrated power is Ephesians and he would feel to me. Let me see that God doesn't even know how much power he has when the Holy Ghost spoke to that domain of and then he began to reason with me. Why scientists since the guy let them get the knowledge of advanced knowledge and of the solar system and all the planets were the smallest galaxy and are supposedly billions bigger not forgive him trillion stars around little galaxy he created everyone so wonderful they all rotate on a noxious in a certain place another planets bump into one another. They can tell world claims going to be what time of the year so they know the windows open and they can send someone in space and give them back. Say your bed, not like a TV broadcast lost in space. A lot of people lost in space. When I saw that blew my mind. Paul prayed in the first chapter of Eden said that God wants us to know the exceeding great. This is power.

The human language is adequate to express our greatest powers. He modifies modifiers of modifiers that need to be modified. I was following me and adjective modifies a noun that morning my right adjective modifier mail I got to go to the horses mouth to go for English and modify means. It describes it, elucidates it the same summer. So where to get the word elucidates that it's all man. It's in their picture dictionary if there how you elucidate it you make a plane you describe everything you said.

God wants us to know now the Greek word, no ear means to know why ask.

It's not the new by hearing about it when God exceeds great he goes beyond the greatest and God wants us to experience it.

This greatness I think maybe I'll get someone to read it. Where's my reader Betty but used to be on the front role volunteers was in my reader and now she got married and she lost her salvation. Mike sure Mr. so God submits a big battle. He everybody's got kids and especially teenage kids are this day it's a battle to keep yourself and should Mr. sing a song he keeps me singing as I go in.

Teenagers keep you. You got it in the first chapter of Ephesians Ephesians 1 yeah okay but it's a lot of scripture to the wants of condensers from around 10 or 12 verse says in him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins going according to the riches of his grace when mounted toward us in all wisdom and prudence having me know the mystery of his will. We are do you know the mysteries will your said to the Ephesians he made it known. Do you know the will of the Lord in your life.

I know you're going to retrain how we don't know the will for your life. Got you now especially young people, you know the will for your life. Instead of just looking pretty got us to have subnet because Angel taker that if you don't know the will for your life. How can you be obedient to God and you've opened the door to not be in the will that opens the door to the enemy and I will get 22 much on one ticket to the good cyclical hit.

According to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in him that this station on the full time. He might gather together in one all things in Christ, those which are having and which are on earth, even in hand. Also we have obtained an inheritance in this beautiful chapter, we can always will.

We got an inheritance and were going to be gathered together with Christ and be the point of these great kingdom in pretesting needed. According to the purpose of, and to work on the counsel of his own where people have to go to nobody if got to do something. You don't have to check in with me and in this church. I don't have to check in with you when I want to do something I will have to check in with you to see if it's okay I don't want to get people mad at me, especially the young people. When I put some writing in an office.

I don't have to come and check in with them and see if it's okay with her plans remain semi-the office a little like and they go around what they get in trouble they start talking about it. Really, what to say.

This archer had it I got it night I let your mind will and the fact that we should be to the praise of his glory first trust in Christ trusted after that he heard the word of truth, the gospel nation. He believed you were sealed with that holy war.

I am sealed you know to seal map units. It was back in those days. Even now will do it nor put wax on and they have their segment in the ceiling that assuming these two things they authenticate the genuine wine. This of the finger ceiling and it's also protected God has you seal me. I have been vindicated that I am his child and I'm under the protection of his power and nobody better for Ralph my seal but our foreground try to break it. Go ahead with the Holy Spirit of promise which is the rest of our inheritance.

Okay, that would become the nose with the word Ernest means if you know it. Raise your hand if you don't you know so that most of the what it is that means it's a down payment you going to get the full payment at the rapture resurrection, but you got you down payment now saying that evidence when you buy a house you put with a call early this morning, down payment, but when you settle, you gotta pay the whole load so we got the onus of his blessings all the blessings we can have now or just put a down payment on what is really going to give us searching for 5755 years C 57 I was searching for 57 years to see all that I what I have up there, come up. I have I'm having trouble staying in the chair.

I can't wait to get all those things go ahead, which is the inheritance into the ring on the purchased session to the praise of his glory were ruptured. It's just a down payment everything he's given us. Now it's just a down payment and read everything in the New Testament of what is K+ and I living nothing what is going to give us go ahead after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus prayer and Augustine's not to give you, making mention of you in my prayers.

God releases Christ, glory, only you. Wisdom is and how to now Paul is a person that has his prayer answered. He expects to be answered please like Jesus.

When Paul prays he only prayed three times for something else in the Lord good morning.

It was his prayer was out of the will of the Lord, but Paul's been praying that we would get the spirit of revelation in the knowledge of him not going around calling people out that have their stomach. You know, getting the meeting is metropolis of an oral successors or addresses of the new telephone number to some people don't know the phone numbers a little tougher your understanding as to who there's there's a textual hunger between two schools, one says understanding and the other one says homework translation when it means the same thing saying that the eyes of your heart or the eyes of your understanding to be what being in Collingwood is the hope with you: you what what you got got salvation good getting close. The hope of eternal life. All the blessings rapture the resurrection all his great exceeding great and precious promises all those things that we only got a down payment. Navajo grandmother get the full playoff go-ahead to who was going inheritance in this verse we know is inheritance in the saints. We were God's inherently dead again so I your understanding being enlightened he may now what is that how is calling and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in this thing his inheritance and say not our inheritance and him we were his inheritance and no power person but are trying to rob God is when you move when you mess with me. You must report belongs to God here. Inherently big trouble dancing God giving God's alarm already got exceeding all now or get to where I wanted to get what is the exceeding greatness of his wicked know the exceeding greatness of his characters is what gives the spirit of wisdom and revelation of the eyes of our understanding our will be quick in know that we are his inheritance and what is the exceeding greatness of his power that is going to do so with that and what is the exceeding greatness of his power to swear to God's word. This power is turned exceeding great loss is exceeding great power is turned to his children.

Families get go-ahead ice what he believes. According to the working power achieve okay what is this exceeding great power that's turned towards us and it's at our disposal and it's according to the power hours were to describe that power. According to the greatness of his power, that when he raised Christ from the dead pretty close when he brought Christ when he raised him from dad's right hand in heavenly places in the get the slow floral ball fire all size. The whole all principality and horrors and didn't name in a game the world to come. Listen to this two reasons are here saying that he raised him from the dead and they raise them above all the devils, read that again when she cry Ray 610 Grayson price 20 energized in Christ. Jesus ascended to bring their three days. He's got a seal on the two collet game.

The two seal it anymore with his morning signet meant that was backed up by the power when the greatest force at that time on the earth was round comedy same and I knew if you break that single then knew going to have to deal with the power of Rome heavenly same. And so Jesus assumed this to being guarded by a continual Roman soldier for all that work three hour shifts to make sure nobody would break the seal and fulfillment that you said that his disciples would steal his body and then go say he was raised from the dead, so it's seal and then now it's got a bigger stone than Joseph Merrifield put in front of it covered the whole thing and they thought know where the world is Jesus going to get out of that nowhere in the world are his disciples receives going to come and stealing. No way in the world. That's to absolutely see her with the greatest power on earth that's got should train car soldiers for longer ready to cut to the pieces they say a man so Lord Jesus, but all are that resurrection when no evening I wanted to set you up for that because the Jewish day started at 6 PM because God started the day cycle when he created the earth, they said in the evening in the morning was Jan one day one, and even our day.

Don't start in the morning to start at 12 o'clock at night.

Okay, so one things are hidden there. So we had to be in the tomb three days and three nights. That would mean he had to come out of the tomb's income is put in the tomb with three days later.

So how the world they can get three days and three nights from Friday evening to Sunday morning is beyond me, but they try to say it back to the people that time any part of the day was a catalyst today with the Lord said as Jonah was in the belly of the whale three days and three nights, so shall the Son of Man be on the earth three days and three nights. When did he fulfill that except that his death and resurrection comes when he released her spirit he wanted to enter part of the earth and down to Tartar rest where the evil spirits were in person that tried to stop them from coming in.

Know which day he went down there and he didn't preach the words proclaim he announced his victory alive.

Since you couldn't stop me something you want to go up her fulfill the rest want to sing Satan over my body about what you see you walking with me walking trying to slow you out because most of the cerebral things like she was really a size that you get such words is all you want.

In a letter written resignation in your cranium. So here's the seal tomb with all the power man on the ceiling that about the Lord help agencies God all exceeding great power beyond comprehension comedy same and beyond the ability of man to even know how greatest power upon that body and that to have a mug shot, sought the many believe that I power on that body and a double miracle happen. It was not only raised from the bed. It was chain. We shall not all sleep or die, but we also be changed.

I don't want to go through eternity with this body now stools were available and stuff too many wrinkles and much like working and hope it the facelifts of fell down and all that stuff you know me make the can help you can put enough max fracture or their you know some people get hurt in that there's three phases of the seven women were three faces older ones were still hadn't helped him to keep your festivals and how to do that to keep him awake man when that power hit that tomb for the double miracle in the spirit man of Jesus step in that glorified body show so as to the ground.

They were scared to death. David know what to do and say. A man there in one Jesus didn't walk out of the mouth for that whom we have the angel roll the stone away the angel roll the stone away to show he's not in their still good. Holding down the walkway through the wall just like you appeared to the disciples in the upper room scared to death. He just won't break through the wall. Lord help me out all around this place. How would you like to be in the revelation of God and God showing you all this. How can you contain yourself. You're almost going crazy like a doodad so my doodads so my sister got chlorophyll give it the properties of the heavenly bodies. That's not subject to Earth's physical laws families save man from I said that's impossible to be done on earth who would save man but God is not bound by physical laws he made any time and wanting set them aside if you're in trouble that won't ever think of walking and wondering about always be in trouble he'll just walk on the trouble with the trouble to receive what he could solve both the same song was over whether the boat was already on the other side is the sleep that okay 89 wedding anointed and encouraging. What is the exceeding greatness of God's power. How exciting that God wants us to know that is to experience the exceeding greatness of his power.

He wants the eyes of our spiritual understanding to be enlightened, so that we may know what is the riches of our inheritance in Christ. Now how can we possibly do for God's power in its it's been said that when the New Testament writers want to define the greatness of God's love.

They point to the cross and when he wanted to find the greatness of God's power.

They point to the empty tomb, but God's power it CD to even the raising of Jesus from the dead. Because others had been raised from the dead. Also, but God not only raised Jesus out of the sepulcher, but he raised him far above far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named Natalie in this world, but in the age to come.

He raised him to sit at his own right hand. The place of supreme power honor and authority, and child of God, it gets to her. He raised us up to with him and seated us with him in heavenly places with all authority our feet because we are his body in this world, this wonderful message.
