πŸ‘‘ The Mighty ‘Power’ Of God πŸ’₯

In 1866 Alfred Nobel invented an explosive made of nitroglycerin absorbed in a porous material. It was by far the most powerful explosive that had so far been invented.

When Nobel and his friends saw what his invention could do, and had to decide on a name, they sought for the strongest possible word forΒ powerΒ β€” in any language. The word they finally chose was the Greek wordΒ dunamis, from which our wordΒ dynamiteΒ is derived.

This word, in Greek also the strongest word for power, is used again and again in the New Testament and is generally translated simply β€œpower”.

When our Lord wrought miracles, for example, St. Luke testifies thatΒ β€œthe POWER [dunamis] of the Lord was present to heal” (LukeΒ 5:17). In promising His apostles that they too would work miracles, He said:Β β€œYe [shall] be endued with POWER [dunamis] from on high” (Luke 24:49).

When the Sadducees questioned the resurrection, Jesus answered:Β β€œYe do err, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the POWER [dunamis] of God” (Matt. 22:29), and St. Paul declares that Christ wasΒ β€œdeclared to be the Son of God with POWER [dunamis]…by the resurrection from the dead” (Rom. 1:4).

Using this same word, Paul, by inspiration, declares thatΒ β€œthe gospel of Christ…is THE POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION, to every one that believeth…” (Rom.Β 1:16). This is because, according to this gospel, or good news,Β β€œCHRIST DIED FOR OUR SINS”, andΒ β€œTHE PREACHING OF THE CROSS”, he says, is to believersΒ β€œTHE POWER OF GOD” (I Cor. 1:18).

But not only are believers saved by the power of God; they areΒ β€œKEPT BY THE POWER OF GOD” (I Pet. 1:5). Indeed, the adjective of this same word β€œdunamis” is used in HebrewsΒ 7:25, where we read that the Lord Jesus Christ isΒ β€œABLE…TO SAVE…TO THE UTTERMOST [THOSE] THAT COME UNTO GOD BY HIM”. Thus the Bible uses the very strongest word for power to show how secure is the salvation of those who trust in Christ. source

Verse for 12/14/2017

And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet, And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel. — Matthew 2:4-6
