In Philippians 3:10, Paul says, “that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection“. Knowing Jesus means having a personal relationship with Him. It is not just knowing about Him. Knowing Him is to have an intimate fellowship with Him. I am in Him and He is in me. This kind of experiential knowledge leads to the experience of His resurrection power. This is the key to revival with signs and wonders being manifested. There is no power that can change lives like resurrection power. This power is beyond death since it has conquered death. The fear of death keeps us from doing anything beyond safe limits. Faith, someone has said, is spelt “R-I-S-K”. To take a risk is to go beyond our natural abilities and see the possible in impossible situations. This is the realm of healings and miracles. This is the realm where the supernatural becomes natural.
Resurrection power is what Jesus operated in during His ministry. For example, He raised Lazarus from the dead, claiming to be the resurrection and the life. He also walked on water. After His resurrection, He could now also walk through walls. His resurrection power crossed all natural boundaries. We too can operate in resurrection power since we rose with Him when we made Him Lord. Do we believe in this? He says we are seated in heavenly places with Him. How can we be seated with Him if we have not ascended with Him? When we believe this we become like Him in resurrection power on earth. This is how we can implement His will on earth as it is in heaven.
Resurrection power is the power that can raise people from the dead. There is no other power that can raise the dead. Resurrection power can reverse illness and disease. His power is available to us today to make possible the impossible. Believe and be saved. This is the Good News of the gospel. Death has been overcome by life. Fear has been replaced by hope. This hope is not a maybe state but a reality in heaven. Now it is up to us to bring it down to earth in each situation of death we face. Come and be energised by the resurrection power of Jesus and be made whole today.
