Summary: We need the power of Gods word working in our lives
Tarry Until you have the Power
44 Then He said to them, “These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you,
That all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me.”
45 And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures.
46 Then He said to them, “Thus it is written, [l]and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day,
47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
48 And you are witnesses of these things.
49 Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city ]of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.”
You and I will never be able to mature as Christians
Until we are able to take God's word as it is written.
Until we understand that every word in the bible has power.
That even every name in the Bible has power behind it
That every command that is written in His word has Power behind it.
Let all the earth fear the LORD;
Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
For He spoke, and it was done; [ He commanded] and it stood fast.
You see at just the mention of His word,
The mountains had to come up out of the ground and stand where the Creator told them to!
He has authority over everything
There is nothing that is not under His command
At His command, He told the [ sun ] what time it could come out in the morning
He commands it to rise in the East,
And to set in the West.
At His command, He told the [ moon ] what Time to come up at night
And day after day?Night after night?
Their patter never changes?
Because His word never told it too!
For He spoke, and it was done
He commanded, and it stood fast.
•At His command, the Birds sing in the morning
•At His command, the crickets sing at night
•At His command, the flowers bloom in May
•At His command, the leaves on the trees die in the fall
It's the master who controls ever season!
He controls ever wind that blows!
When you see the sun shining in the day it's because He told it to.
When you see it raining outside its because He allowed it!
Everything is controlled by the?
Power of His Word?
His word is everlasting___ It never changes
Because He never changes.
I Peter 1:24-25 Says
The grass withers And its flower falls away, But the word of the LORD endures forever.
I am telling you this morning
You can take the 10 commandments off ever courthouse wall
You can take the word of God out of every school across America
You can burn ever bible in the world
But it will not change not one word that God SPOAK!
Once Gods word goes out it will not return void!
No matter what people say!
•Let them say that Healing has passed away!
•Let them say that Tongues have passed away!

It seems like those days everyone wants to take Gods word and make it fit their styles
People want to take God's word and sift through it
Until all that is left is what they like.
What feels comfortable to them
What feels Convenient to their life
What is easy on our flesh.
What is Pleasant to them.
We like to pick and choose the scriptures that we need at the point and time we need them.
Let me explain
When we are sick we want to talk about is
By His stripes we are healed.
When we are broke we like to talk about how the bible says
He will supply all our needs.
When someone does us wrong We talk about how the bible says
vengeance is mine says the Lord
When we feel down we like
