Welcome to the voice of power broadcast with Gary Atkins past her willingness as Christian center in King North Carolina in a postmodern culture pastor Atkins preaches an old-fashioned message under a fresh anointing of the Holy Spirit, pointing, meaning winning to the truth of Scripture and freedom found in Jesus Christ pastor Atkins police the body of Christ is a voice and when we declare Jesus is Lord and the voice of power is a recent message from the tabernacle of willing vessels Christian center insureds are Virgil friends not join us for sure glad you're with us today at all 100 revisions jumper, one which started with last number are talked about how we are blessed in Christ everybody shouted in Christ in heavenly places. He has predestined us to the adoption of sons and daughters. We are sons and daughters of God, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, so in Christ we are blessed, despite your circumstances despite what's going on around you or what diagnosis you may have received. He is still on the throne and you are still blessed in him shall a man Steve what a wonderful work. The Lord is done. Glad Sandra pointed out that every time we pray for healing is up persistence been persuaded obedience right if there's any sick among you, let them call for the elders, but the motive of oil break up prayer of faith in the Lord shall raise them up. We believe that you're seeing the evidence of it in his life, but knowing Steve he goes to bed listening to God's word stays in God's word. Throughout the day, and that's where the power lies the revelation of the knowledge of him, which is his work.
A man got your Bible all right. Look with me verse 15 of Ephesians 1 Paul prays a prayer and I truly believe that God answered his prayer in the written word that we have in front of us, right here with me. Verse 15 for this reason I to having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which exists among you and your love for all the saints do not cease giving thanks for you while making mention of you in my prayers. And here's what he prays that verse 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him once again. I believe the answer that prayer because we have wisdom and revelation in the 66 books of your Bible using God answered his prayer. That's important in the knowledge of him him who Christ in whom we are seated with in heavenly places. According to chapter 1, which means we are blessed with all spiritual blessings, love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance, we have these things by the abiding presence of the Holy Spirit in the revelation in the knowledge of him. Look at verse 18. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of his calling is calling your calling know he is calling, what are the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints shall fetch me you have a spiritual inheritance. You know what it is. It's his word.
Sandra said it so well, if you're facing a situation go to God's word find an answer.
Find a promise and stand upon it. Meditate upon it. Did it in your heart.
Let it come alive in your spirit understand that that is your blessing in heavenly places. You have the revelation of the knowledge of Christ in his word, a man all right now I want you to look verse 19 and what is the surpassing greatness of his power lifting. James is the exceeding greatness of his power on doing NASB here today and toward us who believe these are in accordance accordance is a musical term harmony. These are in harmony with the working of the strength of his mind in this one verse.
We have four different words for power in our English language we say we got power we got power at home with lost power.
We have a general idea of what that is right.
But Paul in the Greek language understand something, there are several words for one English word that we have which means there are several different meetings. Now look at this one verse one of the first word in 18 or 19, rather, and what is the surpassing greatness of his power in the Greek that's Dumas, which is dynamite dynamic power acts one verse eight he says you shall receive power, Dumas dynamite explosive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you. We have one word for power. It's toward us were who believe these are in accordance to the work team that were working in the Greek is inter-data we get our word energy from that word and energetic force of power of the strengths or King James makes a power that were there. Which means ecstasy or crate toss which means dominion strength might dominion over everything and that's the point of Ephesians 1 here in this passage, he has the preeminent see Christ is above all things of his might. Verse 19 that last word is cut switches is the ability to perform and he is able more than able to perform a miracle in your life to put God still performs miracles.
All I do you believe you still believe that he's able to do what others may say are impossible. All I believe it with man. It is impossible, but not with God for with God all shall know all things are possible in Christ. So we have four different words packed in one verse. What kind of power is this dog well he tells us. Look at verse 20 which he brought about in Christ when he raised him from the dead. I'm talking about resurrection power and that's what he's talking about your resurrection power. Think about it for a moment. That's power. On top of power on top of power, and with that kind of power.
Anything can resurrect in your life. A man with the revelation of the knowledge of Christ and Paul said in Philippians 3 verse 10 pieces I want to know Jesus Christ. I want to know him so powerfully that I know him and the power of his resurrection. Prof. Richard Bauer what is resurrection power. Well, it's Dumas it's crate toss it's ecstasy at its inner data, its power on top of power on top of more power all hallelujah let me give you an Old Testament counterpart noted excited to jumper for the anointing of the Spirit is here to tell you I feel something stirring but excited to jumper for the prophet Elisha, not Elijah, but Elisha took the mantle of Elijah received a double portion of the anointing that Elijah had not. Elijah called fire down from heaven. Think about how much power that was through God's hand, but Elisha gets a double portion of that kind of power I want us to see America. Second, things for there's a shooter might woman who she and her husband would take care of Elisha when he would come to town as the prophet of God. The evangelist man of God they built him a room in their house because he blesses the family and says I'll give you what you desire and course they design child.
God give them a child of the prophet Elisha and then one day that child working out in the field and he dies between what she does. Verse 18 of second Kings four, when the child was grown. The day came that he went out to his father to the reapers and he said to his father my head. My head and he said to his servant carry him to his mother and what he had yet taken him he brought him to his mother and he sat on her lap until noon and then died. She went up and laid him on the bed of the man of God. The room that they built for Elisha and shut the door behind him and went out and she called her husband and said please send me one of the servants and one of the donkeys that I may run to the man of God and return and he said why would you go to him today. It is neither new moon nor Sabbath, and she said it is well to disperse what you just resume that from your own heart and say with me. It is well notice her response one packed full of faith, full of assurance full of persuasion that despite the circumstances.
She was able to say it is whale: I love this and let me make a point here. Do you realize that her husband was saying.
You can go to the man of God today you have to go on specific days at specific times hard to gladden our new covenant, that are Elisha Christ made a way for us to go to the throne room of heaven at any time and nobody can tell us it's not Sunday or it's not Wednesday but 24 hours a day seven days a week. You have the power to go into the presence of God in the name of Jesus on 11 verse 24 and then she sat on the donkey and said your servant drive go forward. Do not slow down the pace for me unless I tell you when it came to the man of God to mount caramel with a man of God saw her at a distance. He said to Hayes on his servant, behold, there is the shooter might be recognized, please run now to meet her and say to her. It is well with you. Is it well with your husband is aware with the child and she answered notice the first word that proceeded out of her mouth were not my boys dead. You lied to me what's going on. Why is God doing this. Why would God let this happen, but her response was, go ahead and say it is well illusion at which he came to the man of God.
Notice she did not deny the problem. We know this because she took action phrase is an action word.
Faith calls you to do something I'm not into the doctrine of saying the opposite of what's going on and that's what will happen. That's ridiculous. If you're sick. Don't say you're not sick you're sick.
Faith is an action word.
Faith says this is a reality. However, it is whale because the truth of his word overrides the facts of my life. You can't deny trouble trouble will just run right after you cannot run your problem. What you can do is take action, squared her shoulders like a tea rail and declare from your heart. It is well hallelujah I love that she was persuaded she was persuaded that God was going to work a miracle. I believe this with all my heart she was persuaded. Therefore, she spoke after her persuasion, saying it is well it is whale and I believe the stability 27 when she came to the man of God to heal caught hold of his feet and to Hayes. I came near to push her away. But the man of God said, let her alone for her soul is troubled within her, and the Lord has hidden from me and has not told me and she said that I asked for his son from my Lord that I not say do not deceive me. So she's getting to the point your design look, it's well I trust his word.
I believe it. I believe in the power and the promise of God.
But here's what's going on and she took it to Elisha understand something everything in the Scripture must point to Christ. If it doesn't, don't teach it because it your own assumption when we go to Christ we can get down to the brass tacks.
He knows what we need before we pray. He knows what's ahead to see and I'm telling you when you go to God in prayer. Don't use some language that you think sounds holy and righteous.
I get so tired of that.
We know these men's in prayer conferences.
All this and these guys stand up and you know all God house we as leaders that was Noah's house.
We as leaders by God as a 16th-century God guy has been told he has cancer you think is limited to the back room and said God about lowest I have 10 or no reason to cry out to God and say, God, you've got to heal me get right down to that's what you did and he said to get to Hayes. I gird up your loins take my staff in your hand. Go your way and if you meet any man do not salute him.
And if anyone salutes you do not answer him and lay my staff on the lads face and sending to Hayes. I his right-hand man to try to this boy raised from the dead. What's is not to do with Ephesians 1. Remember resurrection power bringing dead things back to life again. Verse 30 the mother.
The lad said as the Lord lives in measures as yourself live, I will not leave you and he rose and followed her notice once again. Her persistence think about Winston Churchill. How looking down the dark mouth of a Nazi regime getting ready to invade Britain.
He stands up at the podium and says these words never give up. Go to colleges all over the world and he would give commencement speeches and they would give them an hour time slot and every time he would get behind that podium and say these words never give up.
That was it good money for little orca but oh what a powerful message.
The persistence or tell you today. If you're watching never give up. Never stop believing God. The Bible says that a breathing dog is better than a dead lion as long as there is breath in your body there is hope beyond the scope for a miracle. Matthew seven verses seven and eight says this asking you shall receive, seek and you shall find. Not that it shall be opened and been in the Greek language in verse eight actually says this John he that continues to ask shall receive deed that continues to seek shelflife fee that continually knocks the door.
Cell bill. That's why every time we give you an invitation to be prayed for you to run the software with persistence and with faith believing God and believing he is a recess he is hallelujah verse 31, been to Hayes.
I passed on before them laid the staff on the lab lads face but there was no sound or response, so he returned to medium and told him the lad has not awakened.
Isaac came into the house, behold the lad was dead laid on his bed.
I would give you point here ready you cannot always rely on somebody else's faith, you listen. I believe wholeheartedly in corporate prayer.
I believe in intercession. I believe there are times when God can perform a miracle in somebody's life because of your prayer and your faith, but there comes a time when you are going to have to get alone with God. There comes a time when you have to stand before him with your heart open, declaring it is whale by faith trusting in the hand of God. You cannot ride the coattails of somebody else's faith, you have to at some point the Bible says in Hebrews 11 verse six without faith it is impossible to please God come to God must first believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him and verse 33.
So we entered and shut the door behind them both and prayed to the Lord.
This is called power. A man Jesus ago to your closet shut the door and what is prayed and what is salt in private, shall be rewarded openly to do not say that she really did closet. Prayer shutting out everything else. Sometimes you just gotta quit talking.
Sometimes you just gotta quit entering text when talking to people who so nothing but negatives into your life. Nothing worse than a negative person life in your faith but you will have to let that happen. Sometimes you just don't turn the phone off and shut the door did out his word and remind yourself that it is well and that you have resurrection power and a revelation and a knowledge of God in his word. All right, it's getting good here. Let's see verse 34 and he went up and lay on the child know this seems strange. I want you to see Jesus in this really goes anyways on the child put his mouth on his mouth, his eyes on his eyes and his hands on his hands and he stretched himself on him and the flesh of the child became know what to think about something. We have a picture of the cross right here because Jesus, the Bible says the eyes of the Lord run to and fro from the whole world looking to show himself strong, to those whose heart are perfected toward him, eyes of the Lord in everyplace watching over the good and evil. When Jesus hung up on the cross upon those Romans is that when you die, your life flashes before your eyes almost died and that didn't happen is I don't know if it's true or not but I would tell you if that's the case, I believe that it was our lives that flashed before Christ's eyes and he was looking at us through eternity future predestined time just to become sons and daughters of God's mouth on his mouth. Jesus from the cross looked at those Romans, you realize you that Romans old, you realize that you're the one bidding for his close with one casting lots for his garment. You're the one making fun of him and he looks down with his eyes and says with his mouth, forgive them for they know not what they Elisha put his hands on that lads hands in the Bible in Ephesians 1 it tells us that Christ is at the right hand of the father. His hands represent his gospel. A man I would tell you something. The hand of God the right hand of God is what brings you and covenant with Jesus Christ.
It was the right hand of God that pulled Israel out of Egypt is the right hand of God that pulls you out of the bondage of sin.
Don't ever forget that and that he looked at you. So every time you go when you sin. I want you to remember that he still looking at you is still saying those words forgive them for they know not what they do not you glad he's still saying that because when he does, life begins to bleed into a sedan. All I'm so glad that he doesn't written that that God remembers who we are. He remembers our frame that we are but dust.
But here's what he chooses to forget the fact that we are seems sick all the time and if it wasn't for the grace of the power of God. If it wasn't for the eyes of God in the mouth of God breathing life into us no hope of resurrection power. Hallelujah, this young lad, Elisha walked back and forth a few times. Lad sneezes seven times raises to life again.
Keep that in mind, look Ephesians 1. Go with me. Ephesians 1. This resurrection power verse 20 of Ephesians 1 which he brought about in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at him at his right hand. Narratives in heavenly places, far above all rule, authority, power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. Can I tell you this morning you have in Christ resurrection power Romans eight verse 11 same spirit that raised Christ from the dead see the Trinity of work God gave us Jesus that was his gift, the son of God Jesus gave us the person of the Holy Spirit so that we could come to Jesus and that Jesus could make us one with God. Why resurrection power. If it wasn't for the resurrection. Everything I'm saying would be in vain. It would be empty.
It would be worthless if he was still lying in that tomb of Joseph of Arimathea we could not claim this kind of power all but if you go to Jerusalem the day you walk into that dirty, dusty tomb where he lay. You will see that it is empty and it's been empty for over 2000 years and he is still seated at the right hand of the father, full of power.
And guess what you're seated with, seated with.
He's never been defeated. Isaiah stay with me. I'm almost finished. Isaiah said, these words in Isaiah 6 in the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and lifted up, and his train's role filled the temple sent me I read something the other day, Taylor tribe is not shouting all of the anytime a king would conquer a nation he would take part of the robe of that King and tied it to his own rope so you knew how strong and how victorious a king was King Josiah understood this. I'm sure King Uzziah had a long flowing robe victorious over nations and kings.
I believe what God was trying to show desire and speaking through Isaiah was that there is an eternal King, whose robe whose vesture fills the temple that will go forever, as King of kings and Lord of lords so we can proclaim today that he sits above all principalities and powers might dominion in your life. The King eternal Holland verse 22. He put all things shall under subjection under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, the ecclesia called out ones that you and I which is his body, highlight that the fullness of him who fills all in all, I want you to know something you can declare that it is well in your life today. Whatever the circumstances are. He's in control. He is the King eternal is train still fills the temple a man.
