4-23-2017 “4-2-2017 “THE CORNERSTONE OF CHRISTIANITY : THE AUTHORITY OF THE RESURRECTION TODAY!” part 2, John 10:17-18

Today Bro. Leo continues his series “THE CORNERSTONE OF CHRISTIANITY” with a Bible study “THE AUTHORITY OF THE RESURRECTION TODAY” part 2.

Review of the Greek words “exousia” and “dunamis” that are translated “power” in the New Testament, from last weeks study.

1) “exousia”= to have authority over something or someone, to have the right to do something, and to have the power to do it.  The right and the authority to do a certain action. (John 10:18)

2) “dunamis”= all mighty divine supernatural power, energy and action.  An action of God.  (Rom. 1:20, Luke 24:49)

Every born again Christian has “dunamis” and “exousia” living in them and this  “dunamis”/”exousia” is the Power of the Resurrection/Holy Spirit (Rom. 8:9-11, 15-16).

The Power of the Resurrection gives us authority and victory over anything that comes against us (1Cor. 15:24).  Notice that “exousia” and “dunamis” are both used in 1Cor. 15:24.

Jesus did not sacrifice Himself for us for the sole purpose of our salvation, He also sacrificed Himself so we believers can have victory over every stronghold that comes against us in our daily life (John 10:10).   He accomplishes this by indwelling us with “dunamis”/”exousia”, the Power of the Resurrection, His Holy Spirit.  The word “life” in John 10:10 is translated from the Greek word “zōē” which means blessed life.

Every born again Christian is equipped to have victory in every aspect of our lives, we just have to choose to believe it, choose to pursue it,  choose to experience it and not settle for anything less.  God is not our co-pilot, He is our pilot and He wants to free us from everything that is binding us.  All we need to do in order to be freed is ask God to reveal to us what exactly is binding us and then ask Him to free us, from what ever it is, with His “dunamis”/”exousia”, the Power of the Resurrection, His Holy Spirit.
