Sharing on 1 Cor 4:20

This excerpt of sharing I received from Ps Paul through email... good to share

“For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power” 1 Corinthians 4:20.

Bill Johnson wrote, “The original language puts it like this --- “The Kingdom of God is not in logos but in dunamis.” Apparently they had a lot of teachers who were good at speaking many words, but displaying little power. They did not follow the pattern that Jesus set for them. Dunamis is ‘the power of God displayed and imparted in a Holy Spirit outpouring.” That is the kingdom!

He further wrote, “The spirits of hell are at war against the anointing, for without the anointing mankind is no threat to their dominion. The spirit of the antichrist is at work today, attempting to influence believers to reject everything that has to do with the Holy Spirit’s anointing. That spirit has worked to reduce the gospel to a mere intellectual message, rather than a supernatural God encounter.

Those who restrict themselves to mere words limit their gifts, and may unintentionally lead believers to pride by increasing knowledge without an increased awareness of God’s presence and power.”

Miracles, signs and wonders are the manifestation of the Holy Spirit to bless the Body of Christ. The importance is the fruit of blessing produced through the manifestation. Where miracles are absent, so is the glory of God, which is the manifested presence of Jesus.
