In February 2006 we commenced a Question and Answer Series through this medium and in April 2006 we considered part two (2) of it. Today, I am delighted to present the third part to you believing that you will find it helpful in Jesus name. The Questions and Answers are as follows:
1. Is God the maker of the world?
Yes he is! This we can defend by looking at issues from the basics. To begin with, it is a known fact nothing extraordinary occurs by accident and that everything in existence has a maker and a beginning. Therefore, our world cannot be an exception. It is an extraordinary entity and its intricate nature alone is enough to convince all skeptics that it did not come into existence by accident. It was carefully thought out and conscientiously put together by an ingenious creator. Great thinkers of old like Plato and Aristotle as well as credible scholars, outstanding leaders (Socio-Political, Economic, Spiritual et. al) and all serious minded people globally are united in their belief that this creator is God. They cannot all be wrong or stupid! Therefore nobody can blame us if we uphold their conviction. Lastly, the final authority on all issues is the Holy Bible and it confirms that God is the maker of the world (Genesis 1:1).
2. Is He powerful?
Yes He is and there are many cases in point that we can cite to prove it. For example, He used His breathtaking power to create the Heaven and Earth (Genesis 1:1), to destroy the Earth (Genesis Chapter 7), to divide the red sea into two through Moses (Exodus 14:21-22), to save Daniel from the den of Lions (Daniel 6:10-19), to deliver Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego from the burning fiery furnace (Daniel 3:19-25), to set Paul and Silas free from the prison (Acts 16:16-26) etc. He has the exclusive power to kill and to make alive (Deuteronomy 32:39) and the final say concerning all issues belongs to him (Lamentations 3:37). It is only a uniquely powerful person that can boast of this type of extraordinary credentials.
Let me quickly interject at this point that God has many power instruments that makes Him astonishingly powerful and one of them is His word (Hebrews 4:12). He wants us to be powerful too hence He gave us the bible which contains His word. Great Apostles like Paul, Peter and John as well as highly revered men and women of God of this era like Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, Kenneth Haggins, Oral Roberts, Benny Hinn, T.D Jakes, Paul Yonggi Cho, Benson Idahosa, Rebecca Brown, Paula White, Joyce Meyer, etc used and are still using the word of God in the name of Jesus to raise the dead, to heal the sick, to set the captives free, to restore sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf, speech to the dumb etc. Also, a huge number of individuals across the globe have severally attested to the efficacy of the word of God in their lives.
Friend, from all above and more outside the scope of this write up, it is evident that God is the maker of the world and that He is absolutely powerful. Finally, we know that one of His most effective power instruments is His word. If you want to obtain freedom from satanic oppression, depression, regression, repression, suppression, retrogression etc then, you must make the bible your inseparable companion. You must study it voraciously (a good daily devotional and other instructional materials such as Christian books, magazines, tapes, CDs, DVDs etc will be very useful here), ruminate over it, act it and declare it unambiguously against any nagging situation that is making it difficult for your life to flourish. The good news is that power will change hands in your favor and outstanding success will come your way (Joshua 1:8). So shall it be in Jesus name Amen.
Jesus is Lord!
