It’s Not Over

September 30, 2013

It amazes me how much of our pop culture has not only invaded our system of belief but has also stymied our faith.

How many times have we not heard the anecdote, especially in sporting events, “It’s not over till it’s over”? This is normally said by a loosing team or their fans indicating that hope still remains. Thus, there is a chance to win. There is a chance to win all the way until the last second on the clock. There is a chance to win until the last inning or quarter is played. There is a chance to win until the last penalty shot is taken. It is only then that the game is over, either won or lost, but finally it is over.

The truth is that the phrase “It’s not over till it’s over”, means nothing in the realm of faith. Instead, the phrase should state, “It does not start, until it is over”.

The fullness of the power of God is truly exhibited when it is linked and exercised over the power of death.

I want to know Christ–yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death (Philippians 3:10)

Many want to experience the power of God but they also want it in a sterile fashion-which is not possible. In this blog post, I will begin by sharing the 3 important experiences that are necessary for anyone following Christ to experience the fullness of the power of God.

The first experience cannot be overlooked, sidestepped or denied, occurs at the Cross. It represents the place of an ugly, inhumane, place of death and destruction. Quickly following the cross, we have an empty tomb that demonstrates the power of life over death. It is not until we get to the third place that we personally experience the Power of the All Mighty God and that is the experience at Pentecost.

In the subsequent posts, I will go into further detail as to how these three experiences relate to us.

Whoever tries to keep their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life will preserve it. (Luke 17:33)
