Connecting To the Secret of Power

More than any other time, the world has become wicked the more, people have become much more callous. That people laugh with you does not mean they are happy with you. The more successful you are the more enemies you gather. The wicked ones have successfully caged the breakthroughs of many, limited several potentials and killed many testimonies. There is great need to know the secret of survival in these times; to know the strategy of not been suppressed and how to shine in the midst of wolves and flourish; this strategy is power; the raw power of God.
Connecting to the secret of Power
There is need to connect to the power of God. What this generation needs is the primitive raw power of God.
Enemies have succeeded in diverting people’s blessings and keeping them at the bottom while they remain at the top. More than any other time, we as children of God need to acquire the raw power of God.

 The Bible says; the Devil looking for whom to devour. {1 Pet 5:8}
In these times, it is not more of eschatology we need, , it is not more of theology we need, what we need now is the power of God.
We have enough knowledge, but we are not using the knowledge to generate enough power as we should.
"God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God." {Psalm 62:11}
As Christian, we are supposed to hear the word more than once. You should hear the word severally so that you can connect to the power in that word
The scriptures declares; Power belongs to God. This implies that power does not belong to the occult, herbalist, scientist our the witches; Power belongs to God
You are a child of God, so why must you lack the power what belongs to your father.
It is written that you should ask and you shall be given.
ü You must need tired of religion without power.
ü You need to be tired of speaking tongues that don't have power.
ü You need to be tired of being a Christian with no power.
It is a different thing to be baptized buy you need a frequent refilling of the Holy Ghost
"For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power." {1 Cor 4:20}
The kingdom of God is not about story; it is the evidence that is seen in your life that will make others move close to God. It is your testimony that people want to see.

There are some Christians that the devil cannot mess around with.
When the devil knows you are always ready, whether in the dream, night, noon you are battle ready, the devil will be afraid to mess around with you.
Consequence of Powerlessness
v Being dragged backwards.
v Roaming about at evil bus stop.
v Overstayed on a level.
v Working at minimum instead of maximum.
v Talented but neglected.
v Faithful but not rewarded.
v Beautiful but not chosen.
You need power for a change
Power is not a luxury but the need of this time
"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." {Acts 1:8}
It is important that every Christian is baptized with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
Evidence of Powerlessness
ü Pray for a short time.
ü Lack of interest in spiritual things.

People that manifested the power of God
Ø Moses encountered God in the burning bush and His life never remains the same. It encountered the Power on God
Your problem is not the wickedness of the devil; it is because you don't have sufficient power to conquer; what you need is to receive that power.
Ø Elijah declared that instead of him to come down, let fire fall.
Elijah destroyed the prophet of baa in a contest
Jesus had already defeated Satan for you, but is left for you to personalize it into your life

You can read the Bible, Go to church and still remain Powerless
No matter what level you are, you need the Power of God. You may be contractors, student, doctor, you need that part.
The world has become more devilish than you can imagine.
ü You have devilish student that will make their bright contemporary sleep off.
ü Some contractors consult some shrine to compete for contract.
If you are a neutral Christian and you want to compete in this kind of desperate wicked world without the power of God; It is suicidal.

The world we live in, is a battle field; it is a warfare not fanfare
What is Power?
Ø Power is the capacity to rule over powers that want to rule you. Such powers like Sickness, afflictions, poverty, curses and so on should not be allowed to prevail.
Ø Power is capacity to have dominion.

Ø The more of the anointing the more of the power
It is written; and the burden shall be lifted off your shoulder and the yoke shall be broken because of the anointing. {Isa 10:27}
Ø Powers makes your enemies to submit
Ø Power is your capacity to influence
Elijah declared that there shall be no rain in the city and it was so.
Ø Power is your Capacity to manifest signs and wonders
It its power that that can convinced people quickly
Why do you need power?
1.   So that the enemy will not waste you.
When there is no power, a man’s life can be wasted, his business can be wasted, his children can be wasted even his entire career can be wasted.
You need to get power, in order to escape the wickedness of this world
"Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty." {Psalm 74:20}
There is Family wickedness, Environmental wickedness and many other.
"And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness." {1 John 5:19}
The enemy can pretend, they can smile but wickedness is in their hearth
Strategies of the wicked
"And when the child was grown, it fell on a day, that he went out to his father to the reapers. And he said unto his father, My head, my head. And he said to a lad, Carry him to his mother. And when he had taken him, and brought him to his mother, he sat on her knees till noon, and then died." {2 Kings 4:18-20}
v There are some powers that wait for people to grow before they attack.
v Some wait for one to achieve greatness and prosperity before they invoke destruction. This shall not be your lot in Jesus name.
We have seen much wickedness.
Ø Husband and wife sleeping on the same bed when some powers fired an arrow of insanity on the husband. He stood up beside his wife, open the door in the middle of the night, and walked out naked.
Ø A wife ran mad on the day of her wedding.

Ø Woman dream that they poured hot oil on her best in the dream. When she wakes up, pain began and the doctor says it is breast cancer.
Ø Some use strange money to make a person wealth disappear.
Ø Some device enchantment to steal other people virtues and blessings (Esther 3)
