Is there Still Power in Christianity?

Updated on May 10, 2020

I am Mrs Lawretta Ayodeji; a minister of God with a Law degree. A lover of Jesus Christ. I love life and live it to the full God's way

Well before we dive into a ‘Yes or a No’ answer, let’s take a practical look at our society today and what the bible says about it:

“Romans 8:19: - For the earnest expectation of the creature waited for the manifestation of the sons of God” (KJV).

In plain English, this verse simply means that the world ‘as it is at the moment’ is in earnest expectation of the revealing of the children of God. The world needs the presence or the manifestation of true children of God; easily identified by the power of God they possess.

It’s no secret that the world we live in today is rapidly changing, with strange things occurring in spiritual terms. More people seem to be craving the easy way out of every situation rather than make an honest run for it. There really are strange things happening in our world today. A lot of people now proudly flaunt openly the idea of witchcraft and their indulgence in fetish voodoo idiosyncrasies.

So, the question now is; is there still power in Christianity? Is there really still power to profess in the Christian faith? Should the Christian still hold on to the ‘faith-based doctrine of God, the bible and eternity (the rapture)’? Is the Christian faith still worth holding onto? Is there light at the end of the tunnel for the believing Christian? These are dire questions many believers crave answers to and I am most pleased to be bringing you the long-awaited answers.

With a resounding ‘Yes’, there is still plenty of power in Christianity and in the Christian faith. Christianity is no joke, Christ is no joke, faith is no joke and most importantly the power of God that saves to the uttermost is definitely no joke!

“John 1: 12: - But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” (KJV).

To be able to exhibit the power derived from Christianity, you have to be a believing Christian. You have to be a faith believing lover of Christ. To embody the power of Christ, you have to believe in the person of Christ, accept Christ as a personal invisible friend of yours and obey his very popular commandments. Even my granny knows them!

The bible says in Hebrew 11:6: - “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.!” (KJV)

Faith is an essential factor in our walk with Jesus Christ. Faith is you believing in the abilities of the invisible power of God to save you in whatever situation you find yourself. faith is your ‘willingness’ to still profess your trust in God’s invisible supernatural mighty power to save even in a dire, heart wrenching situation. Faith is believing in the power of God to save you in any situation even if it seems like all hope is lost.

” Hebrews 11:1: - Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”. (KJV)

Acquiring God’s power is automatic if you follow his simple rules, which are; Love God (by praying daily and reading your bible), Obey his commandments and love your neighbours. Acquiring God’s power is an automatic experience. For me it was! Just stick to his rules and you will be fine.

I must reiterate that power from Jesus automatically is given to a person who profess Jesus as their Lord and saviour and do their utmost best to adhere to God’s commandments. Also remember to love your neighbours with Godly Wisdom!

“1 John 4:20 (kjv): - If a man says, I love God, and hates his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?”

“Matthew 10:16 (kjv): - Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.”

Christianity is a very powerful religion and the power derived from being a Christian is the sovereign highest undefeated power in the world. Way more powerful than Marine powers or Witchcraft powers or any other power that currently exists. In fact, the bible makes it clear:

“Psalm 62:11 (KJV): - God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belonged unto God.”

I know many of you may have questions like; ‘Well if Christianity is so powerful then why are the people in darkness (witches and wizards) better off in the society?!

“Psalm 73:3-5 (KJV): - For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm. They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men.

“Psalm 73: 17-19 (KJV): - Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end. Surely, thou didst set them in slippery places: thou cast them down into destruction. How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors.”

Not to beat around the bush; there are spiritual principles in operation in our world today that many Christian know nothing about. Seriously guys; there are spiritual rules currently in operation in our world which the children of darkness are aware of but many Christians know nothing about these spiritual rules.

“Luke 16:8 (KJV): - …for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.”

Some examples of such spiritual principles include:

  1. Food is more than just food. Food in the spiritual realm are blessings. So ideally, you should never waste food; they are a load of blessing. Always endeavour to finish your meals.
  2. You literarily get blessings from taking long walks. Walking is not just an exercise. In the spiritual realm, it generates blessings.
  3. Grow your nails. Long nails are a guaranteed way of filling up on blessings.
  4. Avoid using the word ‘Yes or No’ when asked any question, as they serve as spiritual traps used on unsuspecting victims by evil minded individuals. Using the word Yes or No in answer to questions could get you into some spiritual covenant or agreement or bondage.
  5. Foods such as; meats(any), cheese, eggs, fizz drinks, ice cream, yogurts etc are actually good for you as they fetch you loads of blessings. They really are a great source of spiritual blessings.
  6. Avoid completely the use of the word ‘sorry’. When you tell a person ‘sorry’, you actually lose a blessing to that person you are saying it to as a form of spiritual compensation for the wrong you may have caused. It is a very serious word in the spirit realm.

These are just a few of the hundreds of spiritual principles out there in our world today known and utilised by those who are aware of their existence. Do not live a life of ignorance, be alert in Christ! Blessings are spiritual droppings that falls on everyone (Christian or not Christian) but are felt or recognised by spiritually awakened people. Blessings are heavenly droppings that paves way for success for anyone who has got a load of them. The more blessings you have on you the easier your day will be. For instance; if there was a job interview to attend and you had a walk that morning, had a nice delicious meal with a can of drink, you literarily have spiritually loaded yourself with blessings and it is factually more than likely that you may get the job. Blessings provides for opportunities, and generally makes your life easier. Again, do not forget what was said earlier; that there are blessing thieves out there, so my advice is that you completely discard the use of the word ‘yes or no’.

For the believer in Christ; in addition to the blessings of God made available to everyone whether or not you are a Christian, there is something also called ‘grace, which is an added reward for the believer in Christ Jesus. While blessings open new doors of opportunities for an individual, grace grants you easy passage through those opportunity doors. Grace is Christ’s unmerited favour to the believer. Grace is unmeasured access into doors of available opportunities. It’s an added incentive for the believer in Christ.

“Hebrews 4:16: - Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

Dear reader, I guarantee you that there is still plenty of power in Jesus Christ, in Christianity and in the Christian faith. I would like to invite you to practice knowing God from a faith based stand point, in spirit and in truth. No playing games! Don’t just be a spectator of the power of God, be the believing Christian!

God bless you.
