Demonstrating the Power of God

But I will come—and soon—if the Lord lets me, and then I’ll find out whether these arrogant people just give pretentious speeches or whether they really have God’s power. For the Kingdom of God is not just a lot of talk; it is living by God’s power. (1 Cor 4:19-20 NLT)

Many people criticize those ministry that move in signs and wonders, and advise those who are spiritually hungry to stay away from those ministry, and added those anointed minister eventually will fall, because of the power of God. Do you know that how many minister fall because of the lack of power of God? Come on now! It’s not the power that causes people to fall. We don’t have enough power of the Holy Spirit and that’s why a lot of leader who are not moving in power fell because they are not walking into the fullness of God that the Lord intended for them. During biblical times do you know Apostle Paul warned those without power to be cautious? Because they are not demonstrating the power of God! The true apostle move in signs and wonders.

The signs of a true apostle were performed among you with utmost patience, with signs and wonders and mighty works. (2Co 12:12 ESV)

But today if you demonstrate the power of God, some concern people will ask those who are seeking the truth to be caution or dismissing them as cults. They question the minister who walk in miraculous power of God, what’s their background, education etc. We should be questioning those who do not move in the Power of God. Read 1 Cor 4:19

then you will know these arrogant people are just giving pretentious speeches or whether they really have God’s power (1Cor 4:19 NLT)

For the Kingdom of God is not just a lot of talk; it is living by God’s power. (1 Cor 4:20 NLT)

If you are just preaching without the demonstration of the power of God, in the bible day, they will wonder if you are really the minister of God. Because when Jesus minister on the earth, He have power. It’s not matter that you need to choose between the Word and Power. Some of extreme Christian say they rather have Word. As believers, we are suppose to have both Word and Power. People always say those move in power do not have the word. It’s a false statement. The truth is whatever we have, we just demonstrate the Word in Power. God backs up His Word. We limit God if we just preach without demonstration of God’s power.

It’s like telling someone that you have powerful multifunction smartphone and you got to buy this smartphone. Then customers ask “can you demonstrate what the smart phone can do”, and you said” no, no, you need to believe that I what I said is true and just trust in me. Buy and you will know….” This is the same thing when we preach the gospel without the power, we are telling how good the product is. Without the demonstration of God's power and that’s why the world are not buying it! The world is not convinced because there are no demonstration.

If you believe and ask God to empower you to move in supernatural signs and wonders, to demonstrate the power of God to the lost, you will see the blind see, the deaf hear, lame walk, dead raise, miraculous healing, outrageous signs and wonders, instant weight loss, the bald receive hair supernaturally, hair colour turn to original colour, gold teeth, new body part recreated, etc

Jesus said to her, "Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?" (John 11:40 ESV)
