Human beings are always impressed with power.

A. At an Air Force base....... when there is an air

show...no matter what one feels about the military

and warfare...you can’t help but be impressed with

the awesome power of these air machines.

1. When I was in the Navy, it was impressive to

watch a jet take off from the short runway

provided for it on the carrier.

B. There are some films that one can see which are

records of the nuclear tests that were done on the

Bikini Atoll.

1. A person can see gigantic ships being sucked

up this column of water.

a. Scientists were a little nervous duringthis

explosion.

1.) They wondered at what they had

unleashed...they wondered if it was

under control or if it would start a

chain of events which would end

this world.

2. I am sure that the ones who survived the

explosions at Hiroshima and Nagasaki were

more than impressed.

a. The Japanese high command were so

impressed, that they surrendered.

C. There is tremendous power which one can witness

in the “Saturn” rockets.

1. A flame which is almost blinding if it is seen

in person.

2. A noise which could deafen a person if they

did not have their ears plugged in some way.

3. Vibrations so intense that a person’s body

starts to vibrate in sympathetic resonance.

D. Then there is the awesomness of God’s great

creation.

1. Waterfalls around the world.

a. Angel falls.

1.) The tallest.

b. Niagara falls.

2.) The widest.

** In my personal experience with Niagara Falls...I felt the

ground vibrate beneath my feet and the air was filled

with mist (even in the parking lot...far away from the

falls).

1. We are impressed because our senses can register

the awesome power....be it from man’s creations,

or God’s.

a. We can see it...feel it....hear it.........In short,

we experience the power and we can’t help

but be impressed.

2. They tell me that the power potential found in

a hurricane can add up to hundreds of

thousands of megatons of TNT.

a. Many of you are believers in the

awesome power of God being revealed

in tornadoes.

Even though there is a MUCH MORE awesome power in

existence...so often we are not really very impressed,

because we cannot always experience this power in

physically measured terms.

A. This is the power of God.

1. Far greater than a hurricane...more impressive

than a nuclear explosion...a power which is

able to create and destroy the universe.

a. This is a power that can create from

nothing.

b. This is a power that is able to change

anything and anybody.

c. It is a power which can over-ride or

suspend all of the physical laws which

we are familiar with (and possibly some

that we don’t even know of, yet).

As impressive as this can be if one would take the time to

contemplate and understand it...we need to understand

this...........Every Christian HAS ACCESS TO ALL OF

THIS POWER!!!!!!!

A. We have access to it, but it is not utilized because

we so often will not take advantage of anything

which cannot be understood.

1. This is so silly, when one thinks about it.

a. In physical realms, we will take

advantage of things which we don’t

understand....things which have been

brought into being by mankind.

EXAMPLE: Computer...cell phone...radio...automobiles

(complete with things that no mechanic over 50 years of

age understands unless he went to school to learn it).

A. We need to know...we need to believe in...we need

to utilize.......the great power that God wants to

place at our disposal.

1. Let us start by recognizing the power that is

available to each and every Christian.

a. Individually and collectively.

I. The power that God has available to those who will

allow faith to work in their lives.

II Thess. 1:9-10 - 9Yes, we had the sentence of death in

ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God

who raises the dead, 10who delivered us from so great a

death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will

still deliver us.

I Peter 1:3-5 - 3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord

Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has

begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection

of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4to an inheritance

incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away,

reserved in heaven for you, 5who are kept by the power of

God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the

last time.

Luke 17:6 - 5And the apostles said to the Lord, “Increase

our faith.” 6So the Lord said, “If you have faith as a

mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled
