And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us- ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all. Ephesians 1:19-23.
The church is the custodian and administrator of the power of resurrection on the earth. It’s amazing to know that the power of life and death is operated by the church. This statement may come as a surprise because some persons have thought that the church has diminished in power today. Some may ask for clarifications, is that for a denomination or generally? A look around prove true the saying that the church is marching on and the gates of hell shall not prevail and that the church is one. The church does not march on by political power but by resurrection power. It is therefore an insult to redemption for any denomination or group to seek government help in solving life problems instead of being the solution.
The church therefore is a heavenly organization with operations directed from the same, having effect and impact on the earth. Every saved soul is translated from earthly to heavenly places by this power.
“But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.” Hebrews 12:22-24.
When the power of resurrection is not freely employed to bring about turnarounds and change of story in life, chances are that you belong to a cult. If your group relies on government and well meaning individuals to solve life problems in your community, you’re probably a member of an NGO.
The church exists as a change agent and solution provider by the power of resurrection. The church is a dwelling place for souls to be saved and registered in heaven; a redemption clinic. It is an error to expect the church to run social services without its mandate of depopulating hell and death and enlarging heaven. The resurrection power changes things on earth through the body of Christ. The resurrection power is the Church emblem; power pass power!
“But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ:whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not. For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.”1 Corinthians 15:13-17.
Prayer: Father God of our lord Jesus Christ, thank you for the mighty power released by the resurrection of Christ and our resurrection. Thank you for making this power emblematic of the church; everyone that comes is touched and in touch in Jesus name.
