The Power of His Resurrection

Paul longed to know and experience the power of the resurrection. We need to note the order that was inspired by the Holy Spirit. That I might know Him comes before the power of His resurrection. It is important that we have a close relationship with God, have His character worked into our lives, so we can handle the power of His resurrection.

Over the years we have seen too many people come into a level of ministry and power they could not handle. When we begin to experience God’s power we become targets of the enemy. One Leader said “The Lord warned me early in my ministry, the fact that anyone must come into a relationship with God higher than their office or the very office could destroy them. I’m not saying before we can experience God’s power flowing in our lives, we have to be close to God and be Christ like, but it is certainly a great safeguard”. Fact is God does use powerfully, people lacking in character.

Scripture teaches God will demonstrate tremendous power on the earth through His people in these days.  Resurrection was one of the most dramatic and powerful events in all history. Out of death came life, from defeat came victory. If you are facing loss, defeat, despair, take courage, you can experience resurrection power in your life and circumstances.

Isaiah 60:1-2

Arise, shine;
For your light has come!
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the Lord will arise over you,
And His glory will be seen upon you.

 

God has placed resurrection power in every believer

Romans 8:11

But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

 

God's power working for us is exactly the same degree of power that raised Jesus from the dead.

Before Jesus went to the cross He made amazing statement in John 14-12“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.

 

Because of the resurrection there is a greater power available to us today than there was before the cross. God’s will for us is to experience the same anointing that was on Jesus but to a greater measure.

The apostles experienced some of it, Peter’s shadow healed the sick, and Paul’s handkerchiefs healed diseases. But in these days we are going to see whole communities and nations blanketed with the resurrection power of God, multitudes will be saved. We must maintain a steadfast vision for this, keep praying, 24-7, until the Spirit be poured out with power from on high.

1 Corinthians 2:4-5

And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,  that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.

 

This is a power greater than what we are seeing in the church today. But in the last days the church will experience a far greater power than the early church experienced. Will be the same resurrection power that Jesus experienced.

God’s resurrection power is available in all areas of life where it seems there is death and despair. Available to restore marriages, relationships, failure, habits, sickness, finances. Is anything too hard for the Lord?

 

How To Experience Resurrection Power

1. Read daily and personalise Ephesians 1:17-20

17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places.

There is a story of an outstanding miracle worker, with a tremendous revelation in the Word. It tells how, for many months, these verses were prayed for daily, it significantly impacted his ministry as God answered the prayer. Gave him tremendous revelation and faith as to the mighty power available to him. We need the Holy Spirit to give us a true revelation of resurrection power that is in us. Once we see it, we will experience it. 

 

2. Meditate on verses about God’s power in you.

Romans 8:11

“Same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you”.

 

Micah 3:8

I am full of power by the Spirit of the Lord”.

 

1 John 4:4

“Greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world”.

 

Mark 16:17-18

These signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils, lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

 

Philipians 4:13

“I can do everything through him who gives me strength”.

 

Keep reading them until you get the revelation and they are a reality.

 

3. Philemon 1:6

that the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgment of every good thing, which is in you in Christ Jesus.

 

Your faith will become effective as you acknowledge what God has placed in you. Say repeatedly everyday, 100 times – I am full of power by the Spirit of the Lord. The same power that raised Jesus from dead is in me.

 

4. Don’t grieve, quench, or vex the Holy Spirit.

Grieving the Holy Spirit is considered the greatest sin of the modern day church. We grieve him by critical words, sin, compromise, harshness, and bitterness. The Holy Spirit is very gentle and sensitive.

 

5. Total dependence on God

The more we realise we can do nothing, don’t try to do it, make it happen, get ourselves out of the way the more the Holy Spirit will flow through us. Dependence is power.

 

6. Acts 1:1

In the first verse of Acts Jesus began to DO. He had to begin to act.  Book of Acts is full of action, stepping out. To experience resurrection power we have to begin to act, step out, risk, pray for the sick, and witness.

The same power that raised Jesus from the dead is in each of us. The resurrection power of God that defeated sin, sickness, depression, fear, the devil and all the powers of darkness is in each of us. Paul’s heart cry that I might know Him and the power of His resurrection. Expect to minister in resurrection power. When we were born again we were born to win.
