THE GOODNESS OF GOD’S WORD AND THE POWER OF THE AGE TO COME

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Heb 6:5-6

who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the power of the age to come— 6

NLT

We have started considering some of the teachings for the mature; by this I mean teachings about things that only the mature can experience.

We have considered spiritual enlightenment. Today we shall be looking at the goodness of God’s word; which is also related to the powers of the age to come. You will discover that everything that we receive from God is through His word there comes a time in the life of a Christian when the word of God becomes tangible and real to him. He knows he has all the word says he has, etc. This is the time when you experience the reality of God’s word- the goodness of God’s word.

When we talk about the power of the age to come we are talking about powers we will walk in when our bodies have been redeemed but we who have the holy spirit get to experience a foretaste of this (See Rom 8:23). These are indescribable powers doing things that human beings cannot naturally do. God made the earth (even of irrational creatures) to respond to humans. This stopped happening because of the fall of man; humans can no longer speak to a mountain to be removed and be cast into the sea because we fell short of the glory of God. We can no longer speak to nature because we have fallen short of the glory of God. When Jesus walked the earth, He showed us some of this power by walking on water, healing the sick and speaking to a tree which responded to his command etc.

When Jesus said “if you have faith, you can say to this mountain, be thou removed and be cast into the sea”. He was referring to the powers of the age to come that can only be activated by faith which is activated by the word of God (see Rom 10:17).

Go into today knowing that it is God’s will for you to operate in the power of the age to come.

To be continued…

Prayer: Dear heavenly father, I thank you for this day I ask dear lord that you help me walk into all your will for my life. Thank you heavenly father for hearing me, In Jesus name I pray. Amen
