My message and my preaching were not with persuasive words of wisdom, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith would not rest on men’s wisdom, but on God’s power (1 Corinthians 2:4-5).
As a Christian you should always be about the power of God. Jesus taught his disciples how to move with power when they shared the good news that the grace of God through Jesus had come and the gift of the Holy Spirit was accessible to those who believed. The Holy Spirit within a man or woman will produce good fruit in that vessel. They will demonstrate supernatural gifts and will walk with wisdom toward those that are without. They will have the ability to discern spiritual things.
When a man or woman is fleshly they will hang their hang their hat on intellect, but will deny God’s power (speaking in tongues, prophecy, healing). They will glory in the admiration of men and will never answer the simple question. How come your life is different from the Master (Jesus)? How come you don’t operate in the same power that Jesus did when the Bible records that signs and wonders would follow those who believe? How come so many people love you, when Jesus and his disciples were persecuted and martyred? Are you stronger than Jesus?
No beloved. These men are wolves in sheep’s clothing. Never forget, it was the church that had Jesus killed in his day. The church brought Jesus to Rome for their death penalty may be used to kill him.
As a person seeking the truth, never be satisfied with simple intellect, because it will fail you when real test come and try you. Many are called, but few or chosen. Few find eternal life. Rest Your Faith On God’s Power.
