    • You’ve Got the Power..
    • Which is more Powerful?
      • An Onion
      • Or Tomato?
      • Let’s Find out…
      • When you rub the onion on your hand, the onion makes your hand stink… water cannot get the stink off.
      • But Tomato juice can…
      • So which is stronger?
      • The only thing to get the stink of sin off of us, is the blood of Jesus.
    • Our Text today…
      • Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
    • Power
      • Δύναμις dunamis 1) strength power, ability
      • It is the same Greek Word from which we get the word dynamite….
      • Our text says, God will do more than we can ask or think, but it is according to the power that worketh in us!
      • No matter what the stressful event you're going through, if you're a child of God, YOU'VE GOT THE POWER! AND THE POWER IS WORKING IN YOU!
    • But Satan likes to try to steal this power from us…
      • He will convince you that you are weak…
      • That you are worthless…
      • That you will fail…
      • That all is hopeless…
      • That he is more powerful than God…
      • But in truth… he is a slithering coward that likes to play with mirrors and smoke screens…
    • Let’s look at the power we have… And let’s see what power is available to us…
      • Then let’s use this Power to blow the gates off of Hell! And make this church a church you can be proud of!
    • WHAT POWER IS AVAILABLE TO US?
      • The Power of the Word!
      • Mark 12:24 - And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?
      • You will always err (make a mistake) when you don't do what the Bible says!
      • Hebrews 4:12 - For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
      • 1 Thess. 2:13 - For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.
      • John 15:7 - If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
      • This is what Paul was speaking of in our text,
      • "He is able to do exceeding, abundantly above all we can ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us!”
      • The power of the Word of God is your weapon against the devil. It is the Sword of the Spirit! THE POWER OF THE WORD WILL GET YOUR PRAYERS ANSWERED!
    • The Word is the Weapon Jesus used…
      • (Matthew 4:4) But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
      • (Matthew 4:7) Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
      • (Matthew 4:10) Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
    • It is the one weapon that is listed in Eph 6
      • Paul lists the pieces of armor we must have to do Spiritual Warfare against Satan and the word of God is the only of weapon listed…
      • (Ephesians 6:17) And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
    • The Power of the Gospel!
      • Romans 1:16 - For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
      • 1 Cor. 1:18 - For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
      • II Tim. 1:8 - Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;
      • Satan wants you to be ashamed of the Gospel. He wants you to be embarrassed to witness to your friends.
      • You say, "I'm shy." You're not shy-you're ashamed-and the shame is on you!
      • BE BOLD!
      • The gospel is the power of God to save! And you have that power working in you to reach your friends and relatives for Christ!
      • THE POWER OF THE GOSPEL WILL SAVE YOUR LOST LOVED ONES!
    • The Power of Prayer!
      • James 5:16-18 - The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. [17] Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are , and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. [18] And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit .
      • The Bible says Elijah was just like us! Friend, we have the power of Elijah! The power of Elijah was the power of prayer!
      • How many times this past week has God answered your prayers…
      • Then don't you think He'll answer your prayer request this morning?
      • THE POWER OF PRAYER WILL BRING THE ANSWER ON THE WAY!
    • The Power of the Blood
      • Rev. 12:11 - And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
      • There is a phrase that we seldom hear anymore, and that may be the reason why some are having trouble getting victory over Satan. That phrase is, "PLEAD THE BLOOD!"
      • We should plead the blood over our children, over our homes, over our Automobiles, over our church, over EVERYTHING!
      • THE POWER OF THE BLOOD WILL BRING PROTECTION OVER YOU AND YOUR POSSESSIONS.
    • Satan and his Demons are real…
      • Jesus said so…
      • They are not happy with us…
      • They will attack us…
      • But Guess what ….
      • THEY ARE LOSERS!
    • Matthew 16:15-19
      • (15) He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
      • (16) And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
      • (17) And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed [it] unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
      • (18) And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
      • (19) And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
    • A Few things from this passage…
      • Our church is built on the faith that Jesus is God…
      • A church that is built on that foundation will destroy Satan’s kingdom… The gates will fall!!!
      • We have the power to do this… The POWER to do this… notice this verse…
      • (19) And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
      • You have the power within you to destroy Satan’s kingdom…
      • You can do ALL things through Christ which strenthens you!
    • The Power of the Holy Ghost!
      • Acts 1:8 - But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
      • The power of the Holy Ghost is the key to overcoming Satan effectively
      • You'll never live a true Christian life without the Holy Ghost!
      • Rom 15:13 - Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
      • Do you need joy, peace and hope?
      • THE POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST WILL FILL YOUR LIFE WITH JOY UNSPEAKABLE AND FULL OF GLORY!
    • The Power of the Resurrection!
      • Phil. 3:10 - That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
      • Paul said, "I want to know everything there is to know about my Lord!"
      • Before you can stand at Calvary, you have to go through Gethsemane.
      • But thank God, we don't just know Christ in the fellowship of His sufferings-
      • WE KNOW HIM IN THE POWER OF HIS RESURRECTION!
      • Rom. 8:11 - But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
      • I John 3:2 - Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
      • YOU'VE EVEN GOT THE POWER TO OVERCOME DEATH …You just haven't needed it yet!
    • YOU'VE GOT THE POWER!
      • You might say, "But I feel so weak."
      • The Bible says, "Let the weak say, I am strong!"
      • Paul said, "When I'm weak, then I am strong, because the power of Christ rests upon me!"
    • Are you facing a situation that you seem powerless to overcome?
      • Is sin holding you back?
      • Does life seem to dump on you all the time?
      • Are you worried about something?
      • Do you not feel as close to God as you once did?
    • Then take hold of the Power of God that is within you…
      • Utilize the POWER of God’s word…
      • Trust in the POWER of the Gospel…
      • Exercise the POWER of prayer…
      • Plead the POWER of the Blood…
      • Go in the POWER of the Holy Ghost…
