Weapons of God’s Power
By: Apostle Skhumbuzo Sangweni
Study Scripture: “For the word of the cross is to those who are perishing foolishness, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”
So, “the word of the cross . . . is the power of God.” This is the Word that the army of God is going to get to know, carry, and preach from the heart because it is in their hearts—from this the river of living waters will flow. Remember, this army does not come to destroy, but to give life. It does not come to conquer, but to set free.
Is this not how the Lord Jesus walked in power? He taught the truth that would set men free, and then He delivered them from what was oppressing them and healed their bodies from what was afflicting them.
The army of God that is mobilizing will carry the most powerful weapon ever carried—the power of God. There is no bomb that has ever been made, even all of the bombs made put together, which have the power contained in a single believer who has the Spirit of God living in them. However, we only see occasional tiny glimpses of this power being demonstrated by believers. This will change as Christians are trained and equipped so that they can be trusted with this power.
God’s love is the foundation of authority. It was when Jesus felt compassion for the sheep without a shepherd that He became their Shepherd. When He felt compassion for those who walked in darkness, He became their Teacher. This is also why we are commanded to love our enemies. If we will love them, we will be able to help heal them and set them free, leading them to salvation, the greatest victory of all over our enemies!
