OUR OWN DIVINE POWERS OF LIFE

THE INTRODUCTION

Our Lord said, "He that overcometh (the powers of Satan), and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers; even as I received of my Father" (Revelation 2:26-27). Now, if we overcome the forces of evil, we will be given an eternal victory in heaven over the powers of Satan. Therefore, we should learn the following truth so that we can understand the greatness of our own creation and redemption of life because LIFE is all that we possess and LIFE is all that we will ever possess. Remember: All Scriptures which are used in this article will be taken from the King James Version of the Bible.



BEING OMNIPOTENT

1. God is Omnipotent in life. John said, "I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thundering, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth" (Revelation 19:6). This means that those three Heavenly Persons who are called the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit in being our Creator are Omnipotent in Their Own Individual Being of life because They are equally called by the Surname of God in being our Creator. God said, "Let us (who are the Spiritual Persons that are called by the Divine Name of God), make man in our image, after our likeness. So God created man in his own image", i. e. of life (Genesis 1:26-27). John said, "For there are three (Persons) that bear record in heaven the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit: and these three (Persons) are one", i. e. equal in power, rule and authority because They are equally made to be called by the Surname of God in matters of Their Own Individual Being of life (1 John 5:7).

2. Christ is Omnipotent in life. Our Lord said, "All power in given unto me in heaven and earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world" (Matthew 28:18-20). This means that those three Heavenly Persons who are called the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in being our Redeemer are Omnipotent in matters of Their Own Individual Being of life because They are equally called by the Surname of Christ in being our Redeemer. This was why, "The Lord (God) said unto my Lord (Christ after He was raised from the grave), sit thou on my right hand, until I make the foes thy footstool. Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that the Lord God (who was the being of the Father and the Holy Spirit in heaven upon that occasion) hath made that same Jesus (who was the Incarnated Word: the Son upon the earth), whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ". Acts 2:34-36 So then, Jesus (who was made both Lord and Christ in being our Redeemer) officially made the Father, Himself in being the Son, and the Holy Spirit to be the three Equal Persons who would be called by the Surname of Christ in matters our own redemption of life. This was achieved when Jesus said, "Go teach all nations, baptizing them (into Christ by baptizing them) in the name (which signifies by the authority) of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit" so that they can become a New Testament Christian by obeying the gospel of Christ (Matthew 28:18-20).

3. In what way have we been created and redeemed? We have limited excess to the Omnipotent Powers of God and the Omnipotent Powers of Christ in matters of our own creation and redemption of life so that we can overcome the forces of evil. Therefore, we must depend upon Spiritual Strength to help us so that we can overcome the forces of evil. The Lord our God said, "Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee, yea, I will help thee: yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness" (Isaiah 41:10).

4. What does the Lord require of our own created and redeemed nature of life? We must know the Omnipotent Power of God, and the Omnipotent Power of Christ in reference to our own creation and redemption of life so that in this life we can become like those three Heavenly Persons who created and redeemed our own immortality of life. Jude said, "Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever" (Jude 24-25).

5. Why have WE been created and redeemed? We have been created by God who is the Surname of the Equal Persons that are called the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit in being our Creator. However, we in being New Testament Christians have been redeemed by Christ who is the Surname of three Equal Persons that are called the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in being our Redeemer. Therefore, in our Heavenly Home we in being New Testament Christians will become equal in power, rule, and authority with those three Heavenly Persons who are made to be called God and Christ in matters of our own creation and redemption of life.

BEING OMNISCIENT

1. God is Omniscient in life. The Psalmist said, "Great is the Lord our God, and of great power, His understanding is infinite" (Psalms 147:5). This means that those three Heavenly Persons who are called the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit in being our Creator are Omniscient in matters of Their Own Individual Being of life because They are equally called by the Surname of God in being our Creator. God said, "Let us (who are the Spiritual Persons that are called by the Divine Name of God), make man in our image, after our likeness. So God created man in his own image", i. e. of life (Genesis 1:26-27). John said, "For there are three (Persons) that bear record in heaven the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit: and these three (Persons) are one", i. e. equal in power, rule, and authority because They are equally made to be called by the Divine Name of God in matters of Their Own Individual Being of life (1 John 5:7).

2. Christ is Omniscient in life. Paul said, "In whom (Christ) are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge" (Colossians 2:3). This means that those three Heavenly Persons who are called the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in being our Redeemer are Omniscient in Their Own Individual Being of life because They are equally called by the Surname of Christ in being our Redeemer. This was why, "The Lord (God) said unto my Lord (Christ after He was raised from the grave), sit thou on my right hand, until I make the foes thy footstool. Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that the Lord God (who was the being of the Father and the Holy Spirit in heaven upon that occasion) hath made that same Jesus (who was the Incarnated Word: the Son upon the earth), whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ". Acts 2:34-36 So then, Jesus (who was made both Lord and Christ in being our Redeemer) officially made the Father, Himself in being the Son, and the Holy Spirit to be the three Equal Persons who would be called by the Surname of Christ in matters our own redemption of life. This was achieved when Jesus said, "Go teach all nations, baptizing them (into Christ by baptizing them) in the name (which signifies by the authority) of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit" so that they can become a New Testament Christian by obeying the gospel of Christ (Matthew 28:18-20).

3. In what way have we been created and redeemed? We have limited excess to the Omniscient Powers of God and the Omniscient Power of Christ in maters of our own creation and redemption of life so that we can overcome our Adversary, who is Satan. Therefore, we must depend upon Spiritual Knowledge to help us to overcome the forces of evil.. Our Lord said, "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:31-32).

4. What does the Lord require of our own created and redeemed nature of life? We must learn more about the Omniscient Power of God and the Omniscient Power of Christ in matters of our own creation and redemption of life so that in this life we can become like those three Heavenly Persons who created and redeemed our own body, Soul, and Spirit free of sin. Paul said, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works" (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

5. Why have WE been created and redeemed? We have been created by God who is the Surname of the Equal Persons that are called the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit in being our Creator. However, we in being New Testament Christians have been redeemed by Christ who is the Surname of three Equal Persons that are called the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in being our Redeemer. Therefore, in our Heavenly Home we in being New Testament Christians will become equal in power, rule, and authority with those three Heavenly Persons who are made to be called God and Christ in matters of our own creation and redemption of life.

BEING OMNIPRESENT

1. God is Omnipresent in life. The Psalmist said, "Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my behold in sheol, behold, thou art there. If I take thy winds of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost part of the sea, Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand, shall hold me" (Psalms 139:7-10). This means that those three Heavenly Persons who are called the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit in being our Creator are Omnipresent in matters of Their Own Individual Being of life because They are equally called by the Surname of God in being our Creator. God said, "Let us (who are the Spiritual Persons that are called by the Divine Name of God), make man in our image, after our likeness. So God created man in his own image", i. e. of life (Genesis 1:26-27). John said, "For there are three (Persons) that bear record in heaven the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit: and these three (Persons) are one", i. e. equal in power, rule and authority because They are equally made to be called by the Surname of God in matters of Their Own Individual Being of life (1 John 5:7).

2. Christ is Omnipresent. Our Lord said, "Where two or three are gathered together in my name (the Name of Christ), there am I in the midst of them" (Matthew 18:20). This means that those three Heavenly Persons who are called the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in being our Redeemer are Omnipresent in matters of Their Own Individual Being of life because They are equally called by the Surname of Christ in being our Redeemer. This was why, "The Lord (God) said unto my Lord (Christ after He was raised from the grave), sit thou on my right hand, until I make the foes thy footstool. Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that the Lord God (who was the being of the Father and the Holy Spirit in heaven upon that occasion) hath made that same Jesus (who was the Incarnated Word: the Son upon the earth), whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ". Acts 2:34-36 So then, Jesus (who was made both Lord and Christ in being our Redeemer) officially made the Father, Himself in being the Son, and the Holy Spirit to be the three Equal Persons who would be called by the Surname of Christ in matters our own redemption of life. This was achieved when Jesus said, "Go teach all nations, baptizing them (into Christ by baptizing them) in the name (which signifies by the authority) of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit" so that they can become a New Testament Christian by obeying the gospel of Christ (Matthew 28:18-20).

3. In what way have we been created and redeemed? The Omnipresent Power of God and the Omnipresent Powers of Christ make it possible for us to have Spiritual Fellowship with those three Equal Persons who created and redeemed our own body, Soul, and Spirit free of sin. Therefore, we are in being New Testament Christians are the Temple of God by redemption so that we can have Spiritual Fellowship with the Lord our God. Paul asked, "And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? Ye are the temple of the living God; As God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people" (2 Corinthians 6:16).

4. What does the Lord require of our own created and redeemed nature of life? We must understand the Omnipresent Power of God and the Omnipresent Power of Christ in reference to our own creation and redemption of life so that in this life we can become like those three Heavenly Persons who created and redeemed our own immortality of life. Paul said, "For it is God who worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure" (Philippians 2:13).

5. Why have WE been created and redeemed? We have been created by God who is the Surname of the Equal Persons that are called the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit in being our Creator.

"And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light, and they (the Redeemed) shall reign (rule) for ever and ever", i. e, over the powers of Satan (Revelation 22:6).

Amen" (2 Timothy 6:16). "To them (the New Testament Christians) who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory, and honour, and immortality, eternal life" (Romans 2:7).

Our Lord said, "Ye shall know the truth, and THE TRUTH shall make you FREE", i. e. of sin (John 8:32).
