The Omnipotent God
(Ge17:1; Ac10:38)

God is omnipotent (Is6:3; Rev1:8).
He surpasses the limits of time, space, and power.
He takes great power and reigns (Rev11:17).

Faith is believing that God has the power to do what He promises (Rm4:21), and
The life of this faith is trusting the power of God and the majesty of His name (Mi5:4), and telling His
mighty acts (Ps145:4).

While some people challenge the impossible, breaking through human limitations,
For most people, the older they get, the more experience they get in life,
The more they feel their limitations, thus the more skeptical and pessimistic they become.

The Bible is written of the omnipotence of God, the attribute of having infinite or unlimited power.
From Genesis to Revelation it is full of supernatural phenomena and mysteries for
God can do all that He has determined to do (Ps115:3; Da4:35), and
No one can force Him to do otherwise (Is14:24, 27).

God introduced Himself as the God Almighty (El-Shaddai) to Abraham (Ge17:1), and
To Isaac (Ge28:3) and to Jacob (Ge35:11).
Abraham believed in God who calls into beings that were not and created, and so
Against all hope, in hope he believed the promise (Ge18:10-15) and
Received a son through his body that was as good as dead at the age of 100 (Ge21:2; Rm4:18-20).

Bringing the pharaoh of Egypt to his knees, Israel was delivered from their slavery of 400 years, and
It was through the wonders and the miracles performed by Moses with his staff (Ex3:20, 4:17).
After parting the sea and walking through it like dry land, and arriving in the wilderness,
They saw God’s miracles daily for 40 years.
In spite of it, however, they grumbled against Him, so without seeing the promised land
All but two of them fell in the wilderness and died (Nu14:22-23).

Even after seeing the temple of Jehovah, the dwelling of the Mighty God where
The ark of the might of Jehovah was, which reminded them, “Jehovah = the Almighty” (Ps132:5, 8)
Israel served other gods for which they were destroyed by the Almighty (Job22:23; Is13:6).

Yet there was the prophecy of the birth of a child, a son to be born
With the name Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God who saves (Is9:6; Zeph3:17).

Yeshua said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days,” because
Through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body (Jn2:19-21),
He would save not the flesh but the souls of men from their sins (Mt1:21),
Not in the name Jehovah but in the Father’s name Yeshua (Jn5:43),
Not as Mary’s son but as the offspring of the woman who came according to the prophecy (Ge3:15).

For He came to do mighty works Himself through His body (Jn14:11),
During the three years of His ministry He daily drove out demons, healed the sick and
Performed countless miracles and wonders for
God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and power (Ac10:38), and
Power came out of His body (Lk6:19, 8:43-48).
Even the disciples who followed Him did the same power (Mt10:1; Lk10:1; Jn14:12).

As He died, He said, “It is finished” (Mt16:21-23; Jn19:30), for
Through His death, the Son of Man broke through the limitations of the human flesh, death, so He:
1) Confessed and trusted that the Father alone is the mighty God who is able to save Him from death (He5:7);
2) With His authority to die judged the devil who had the authority to kill (Jn10:18; He2:14); and
3) The Word in the beginning became flesh, the Omnipotent, limitless God as limited man,
- Through the limitations of the flesh — paid the price of sin, death, for all men
- Through His eternal blood — let men break through their limits (Rm8:1; He13:20).

The Father raised Him from the dead, confirming that Yeshua is the Son of God (Rm1:4).
He ascended to the heavenly throne and reigns with power forever (Rev1:8, 11:17).

The Holy Spirit lets believers challenge the impossible in the mighty name Yeshua (Mk16:17-18).
To this day, signs are important because they testify that Yeshua Christ lives,
They confirm the truth (Mk16:20), they prevent faith from becoming an idea, and
Through testimonies they give glory to God.

While the world may become afraid, discouraged and hopeless at the smallest things,
The Christian does not fear or worry (Mt6:31-34; Rm8:31-39),
Does not shrink back even in danger (Ac4:27-31; 1Co2:4),
But rather boldly testifies the gospel and heals the sick for
He longs for the ultimate breakthrough when the Lord returns — the resurrection to life (Php3:20-21).

O Lord,
Let us never become religious people.
Rather, in the name Yeshua let us create miracles.
Through Him who gives us power, we can do all things (2Co3:4-5 Php4:13)! Amen.
