FRIDAY, APRIL 5
Scripture: Luke 24:49
Jesus as the Son of God began to instruct the disciples that He was going to impart to them the four levels of power that make up His fullness. We are going to need that to walk in perilous times during the last days. Ephesians guarantees us the fullness of Christ which includes these four levels of power. Jesus began teaching about His power in Luke 24:49 which says, “Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power, dunamis, from on high.” Throughout the ministry of Jesus at various junctures He referred to these different levels of power. Jesus walked the disciples through an understanding of each. He demonstrated them Himself and then at the end of His ministry He told them to prepare because He was going to bring them into the fullness. Our pattern starts with dunamis which comes from the based. I have studied the word dunamis in the most extensive Bible dictionary called Kittle’s. It is a ten volume set, which includes 70 pages dedicated exclusively to the word dunamis. To fully explore those pages and the depth of meaning is a huge undertaking. The bottom line is unfolded best in one definition in particular which summarizes the 70 pages of various shades of its meanings. According to Kittle when we receive the Holy Spirit, we have the dunamis of God residing on the inside of us and the dunamis of God is the power to change history at the will of God. It is the power to overturn anything the devil has ever done. It is the power to change personal history, the power to change corporate history and national history. Dunamis is the power to change history!
