God of Wonders
Concepts from the book Holy Spirit: Are We Flammable Or Fireproof? by Reinhard Bonnke.
As Christians we have the Holy Spirit living within us and thus have access to the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the grave. (Romans 8:11)
A powerless church is a disgrace. The Holy Spirit is always in on the act when you act for God. If you don’t work for God, you don’t need power, and none will be given.
A follower of Christ who desires to be a vessel of honor used for the Kingdom of God has access to an unstoppable power through the Holy Spirit. Unstoppable potentcy, super greatness, hyper megethos.
Ephesians 1:16-20 (ESV)
16 I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers,
17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him,
18 having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,
19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might
20 that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places,
Apostle Paul is praying that Christians be enlightened to the power that is available to them. We need to be more than enlightened, we need to ask God to fill us up with His megethos-greatness of power. We need to Baptized in the Holy Spirit with Fire! Much more of God and much less of us.
