  • 00:00:02.010 --> 00:00:02.020
  • Dr. David Jeremiah: Some say that the greatest question
  • 00:00:02.020 --> 00:00:02.220
  • in life is: "Does God exist?"
  • 00:00:02.230 --> 00:00:07.180
  • I say the greatest question is:
  • 00:00:07.190 --> 00:00:09.120
  • "Do I know the God who does exist?
  • 00:00:09.130 --> 00:00:13.000
  • Do I know about him?
  • 00:00:13.010 --> 00:00:15.090
  • Do I know him personally?"
  • 00:00:15.100 --> 00:00:18.230
  • The study of God as he reveals himself in Scripture
  • 00:00:18.240 --> 00:00:22.100
  • is the supreme study of a lifetime.
  • 00:00:22.110 --> 00:00:26.030
  • It lifts our thoughts, steadies our nerves,
  • 00:00:26.040 --> 00:00:33.040
  • purifies our motives, expands our confidence,
  • 00:00:33.050 --> 00:00:39.040
  • and strengthens our influence.
  • 00:00:39.050 --> 00:00:42.200
  • It's the greatest subject we could ever study,
  • 00:00:42.210 --> 00:00:46.150
  • for God is the apex of all reality.
  • 00:00:46.160 --> 00:00:50.260
  • 00:00:50.270 --> 00:01:00.280
  • 00:01:00.290 --> 00:01:10.260
  • 00:01:10.270 --> 00:01:20.260
  • 00:01:20.270 --> 00:01:30.270
  • Dr. Jeremiah: Discover more about God than you know
  • 00:01:32.130 --> 00:01:36.020
  • and become closer to him than you are.
  • 00:01:36.030 --> 00:01:39.190
  • 00:01:39.200 --> 00:01:47.260
  • male announcer: And now, here is your host,
  • 00:01:47.270 --> 00:01:49.250
  • Dr. David Jeremiah.
  • 00:01:49.260 --> 00:01:51.260
  • Dr. Jeremiah: From the first verse of Genesis
  • 00:01:52.270 --> 00:01:54.230
  • when God created the heavens and the earth,
  • 00:01:54.240 --> 00:01:57.050
  • to the last page of Revelation when we read about
  • 00:01:57.060 --> 00:02:00.270
  • the throne of God in New Jerusalem, our attention
  • 00:02:00.280 --> 00:02:04.050
  • is dedicated to God's omnipotent and sovereign power.
  • 00:02:04.060 --> 00:02:09.060
  • God's omnipotence energizes all his other attributes.
  • 00:02:09.070 --> 00:02:13.270
  • But what is there about God's power that you may not know?
  • 00:02:13.280 --> 00:02:17.230
  • In today's message from my new series,
  • 00:02:18.220 --> 00:02:21.010
  • "The God You May Not Know," we will look

  • at four demonstrations of God's power
  • 00:02:23.150 --> 00:02:26.160
  • and my prayer is that you will walk away
  • 00:02:26.170 --> 00:02:29.110
  • from today's program not just knowing about God's power
  • 00:02:29.120 --> 00:02:33.170
  • but actually knowing and experiencing his power
  • 00:02:33.180 --> 00:02:36.290
  • in your life.
  • 00:02:37.000 --> 00:02:39.140
  • So stay tuned for today's edition of "Turning Point."
  • 00:02:39.150 --> 00:02:43.150
  • 00:02:43.270 --> 00:02:50.240
  • announcer: Do you know God as well as you think?
  • 00:02:52.150 --> 00:02:55.160
  • It may be time to take the journey
  • 00:02:55.170 --> 00:02:57.080
  • from knowing about God to deeply knowing him.
  • 00:02:57.090 --> 00:03:00.130
  • In Dr. David Jeremiah's book,
  • 00:03:00.250 --> 00:03:02.230
  • "The God You May Not Know," Dr. Jeremiah shares
  • 00:03:02.240 --> 00:03:05.150
  • the powerful characteristics
  • 00:03:05.160 --> 00:03:06.290
  • that God himself wants you to understand.
  • 00:03:07.000 --> 00:03:09.070
  • Dr. Jeremiah: I've spent my life being overwhelmed
  • 00:03:09.290 --> 00:03:11.290
  • with the wonder of the person of God
  • 00:03:12.000 --> 00:03:14.060
  • and it's my greatest joy to share with you
  • 00:03:14.070 --> 00:03:17.090
  • some eternal truths about the God you may not know.
  • 00:03:17.100 --> 00:03:21.140
  • My prayer is that this book will enable you
  • 00:03:21.150 --> 00:03:24.030
  • to know more about God than you do
  • 00:03:24.040 --> 00:03:27.140
  • and for you to grow closer to him than you are.

  • 00:04:08.010 --> 00:04:10.150
  • Now, here is Dr. Jeremiah with his message,
  • 00:04:10.160 --> 00:04:13.230
  • "Knowing a Powerful God."
  • 00:04:13.240 --> 00:04:15.240
  • Dr. Jeremiah: The Bible says, "Great is our Lord,
  • 00:04:16.250 --> 00:04:19.170
  • and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite."
  • 00:04:19.180 --> 00:04:25.040
  • And the choirs of heaven sing it this way:
  • 00:04:25.050 --> 00:04:28.040
  • "Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honor
  • 00:04:28.050 --> 00:04:31.060
  • and power belong to our God!"
  • 00:04:31.070 --> 00:04:36.020
  • It is the infinite power of God that fuels the universe.
  • 00:04:36.030 --> 00:04:42.030
  • Only God's infinite power can so effortlessly keep
  • 00:04:43.010 --> 00:04:46.060
  • the universe humming and crackling with energy.
  • 00:04:46.070 --> 00:04:49.190
  • So today I wanna just take you on this little journey.
  • 00:04:49.200 --> 00:04:51.260
  • First of all, with a bit of an explanation of God's power
  • 00:04:51.270 --> 00:04:55.160
  • in terms that we can understand.
  • 00:04:55.170 --> 00:04:59.000
  • First of all, God can do all things.
  • 00:04:59.010 --> 00:05:04.120
  • Revelation 19:6 says: "And I heard, as it were,
  • 00:05:04.130 --> 00:05:07.170
  • the voice of a great multitude,
  • 00:05:07.180 --> 00:05:10.150
  • as the sound of many waters, as the sound
  • 00:05:10.160 --> 00:05:13.030
  • of mighty thunderings, saying, 'Alleluia!
  • 00:05:13.040 --> 00:05:17.070
  • For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!'"
  • 00:05:17.080 --> 00:05:22.200
  • The Bible uses a unique word to describe God.
  • 00:05:22.210 --> 00:05:26.200
  • God is omnipotent.
  • 00:05:26.210 --> 00:05:29.140
  • Say that with me.
  • 00:05:29.150 --> 00:05:30.250
  • God is omnipotent.
  • 00:05:30.260 --> 00:05:33.120
  • What does that mean?
  • 00:05:33.130 --> 00:05:35.150
  • Omnipotent means all-powerful.
  • 00:05:35.160 --> 00:05:38.160
  • Omni, O-M-N-I, is a biblical term which means all,
  • 00:05:38.170 --> 00:05:43.100
  • and we can figure out potent.
  • 00:05:43.110 --> 00:05:45.240
  • Potent means power.
  • 00:05:45.250 --> 00:05:47.160
  • So omnipotent means all power.
  • 00:05:47.170 --> 00:05:51.100
  • George Frideric Handel incorporated that
  • 00:05:51.110 --> 00:05:53.200
  • into his, "Hallelujah Chorus"
  • 00:05:53.210 --> 00:05:55.220
  • of his soul-stirring oratorio,
  • 00:05:55.230 --> 00:05:57.260
  • "The Messiah," and the words are so electrifying we cannot listen
  • 00:05:57.270 --> 00:06:01.120
  • to them sitting down.
  • 00:06:01.130 --> 00:06:02.220
  • We have to stand up when we sing about the Lord God Omnipotent.
  • 00:06:02.230 --> 00:06:06.280
  • From the first verses in Genesis all the way through the last
  • 00:06:07.250 --> 00:06:11.060
  • page of Revelation when we read about the throne of God
  • 00:06:11.070 --> 00:06:14.060
  • in New Jerusalem, our attention is directed
  • 00:06:14.070 --> 00:06:16.280
  • to God's omnipotent, all-powerful,
  • 00:06:16.290 --> 00:06:20.270
  • almighty sovereign power.
  • 00:06:20.280 --> 00:06:25.120
  • He can do all things.
  • 00:06:25.130 --> 00:06:27.180
  • There isn't anything you can think of that God can't do.
  • 00:06:27.190 --> 00:06:30.050
  • Number two.
  • 00:06:30.060 --> 00:06:32.050
  • Nothing is too hard for God.
  • 00:06:32.060 --> 00:06:36.140
  • Luke 1:37 says: "With God nothing will be impossible."
  • 00:06:36.150 --> 00:06:41.240
  • And since he has all the power in the universe at his command,
  • 00:06:41.250 --> 00:06:44.280
  • he can do whatever he chooses.
  • 00:06:44.290 --> 00:06:46.220
  • And he does one thing as easily as he does another.
  • 00:06:46.230 --> 00:06:50.120
  • Tozer indicates that nothing is harder for God
  • 00:06:50.130 --> 00:06:52.290
  • than anything else.
  • 00:06:53.000 --> 00:06:54.090
  • He does everything with the same amount of ease.
  • 00:06:54.100 --> 00:06:58.080
  • Now that's challenging to us.
  • 00:06:58.090 --> 00:07:00.230
  • That's challenging for our finite minds to grasp
  • 00:07:00.240 --> 00:07:03.090
  • because we have degrees of difficulty in what we do.
  • 00:07:03.100 --> 00:07:06.260
  • Taking a tissue from a box is easier than opening
  • 00:07:06.270 --> 00:07:10.260
  • a sealed jar.
  • 00:07:10.270 --> 00:07:13.230
  • Have you ever had your wife come and give you a bottle of pickles
  • 00:07:13.240 --> 00:07:16.120
  • or something and say, "I can't open this.
  • 00:07:16.130 --> 00:07:18.090
  • Can you open this for me?"
  • 00:07:18.100 --> 00:07:20.250
  • And hopefully you're still able to do it because it's--
  • 00:07:20.260 --> 00:07:22.200
  • I mean, it's a man thing.
  • 00:07:22.210 --> 00:07:24.050
  • If you can't open that jar, it's a moment of discouragement
  • 00:07:24.060 --> 00:07:26.000
  • for you.
  • 00:07:26.010 --> 00:07:29.110
  • But God has no degrees of difficulty.
  • 00:07:29.120 --> 00:07:32.110
  • He does everything with equal ease.
  • 00:07:32.120 --> 00:07:35.110
  • He is able.
  • 00:07:35.120 --> 00:07:36.240
  • He holds omnipotent energy in his hand.
  • 00:07:36.250 --> 00:07:38.240
  • The patriarch Job said it this way:
  • 00:07:38.250 --> 00:07:41.000
  • "I know that You can do everything and that there is
  • 00:07:41.010 --> 00:07:43.220
  • no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You."
  • 00:07:43.230 --> 00:07:46.290
  • And Jeremiah prayed: "Ah, Lord God!
  • 00:07:47.000 --> 00:07:49.160
  • Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth
  • 00:07:49.170 --> 00:07:51.260
  • by Your great power and outstretched arm.
  • 00:07:51.270 --> 00:07:54.230
  • There is nothing too hard for You."
  • 00:07:54.240 --> 00:07:59.020
  • Abraham and Sarah learned this lesson when the Lord promised
  • 00:07:59.030 --> 00:08:02.030
  • them a child in their old age and you remember Sarah
  • 00:08:02.040 --> 00:08:05.010
  • was past the age of childbearing.
  • 00:08:05.020 --> 00:08:07.060
  • She was pushing 100.
  • 00:08:07.070 --> 00:08:09.160
  • And she laughed at the news, and the Lord God said,
  • 00:08:09.170 --> 00:08:12.050
  • "Abraham, why did Sarah laugh, is anything too hard
  • 00:08:12.060 --> 00:08:16.270
  • for the Lord?"
  • 00:08:16.280 --> 00:08:20.060
  • The Lord Jesus echoes this truth in the New Testament.
  • 00:08:20.070 --> 00:08:22.260
  • He's discussing the difficulty of getting people into heaven,
  • 00:08:22.270 --> 00:08:26.070
  • and he says, "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye
  • 00:08:26.080 --> 00:08:29.020
  • of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.
  • 00:08:29.030 --> 00:08:32.220
  • With men this is impossible, but with God all things
  • 00:08:32.230 --> 00:08:36.090
  • are possible."
  • 00:08:36.100 --> 00:08:39.090
  • God can do all things and nothing is too hard for God.
  • 00:08:39.100 --> 00:08:46.190
  • Number three, God never gets tired.
  • 00:08:46.200 --> 00:08:51.190
  • Isaiah 40:28 says: "Have you not known?
  • 00:08:51.200 --> 00:08:54.170
  • Have you not heard?
  • 00:08:54.180 --> 00:08:56.070
  • The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends
  • 00:08:56.080 --> 00:08:58.270
  • of the earth, neither faints nor is weary.
  • 00:08:58.280 --> 00:09:02.210
  • His understanding is unsearchable."
  • 00:09:02.220 --> 00:09:06.050
  • God never gets tired.
  • 00:09:06.060 --> 00:09:07.150
  • That brings me to the fourth thing.
  • 00:09:07.160 --> 00:09:09.190
  • God can do all things, nothing is too hard for God,
  • 00:09:09.200 --> 00:09:12.230
  • never does God get tired, and here's one
  • 00:09:12.240 --> 00:09:15.190
  • that's kind of interesting.
  • 00:09:15.200 --> 00:09:17.180
  • It's a question.
  • 00:09:17.190 --> 00:09:18.280
  • Is there anything God cannot do?
  • 00:09:18.290 --> 00:09:22.030
  • I've already said God can do all things but I'm gonna ask
  • 00:09:22.040 --> 00:09:24.100
  • the question again.
  • 00:09:24.110 --> 00:09:26.000
  • This is not doublespeak, nor am I trying to confuse you
  • 00:09:26.010 --> 00:09:28.100
  • but I want you to understand something that if you
  • 00:09:28.110 --> 00:09:31.120
  • don't understand, somebody will stick it to you
  • 00:09:31.130 --> 00:09:33.280
  • someday in a discussion.
  • 00:09:33.290 --> 00:09:36.060
  • Whenever you get around young people,
  • 00:09:36.070 --> 00:09:37.190
  • especially college kids who are home from their first semester
  • 00:09:37.200 --> 00:09:40.050
  • at the university, these are the kind of questions
  • 00:09:40.060 --> 00:09:42.160
  • that they ask you.
  • 00:09:42.170 --> 00:09:44.270
  • Questions like this one: Can God make a rock
  • 00:09:44.280 --> 00:09:49.250
  • that is so heavy he can't pick it up?
  • 00:09:49.260 --> 00:09:55.000
  • Everybody go, "Hmm, hmm."
  • 00:09:55.010 --> 00:09:58.230
  • Scholars love those kind of questions because
  • 00:09:58.240 --> 00:10:01.000
  • there isn't really any logical way to discuss it.
  • 00:10:01.010 --> 00:10:05.120
  • It's a perplexing question for some people
  • 00:10:05.130 --> 00:10:07.160
  • but not for people who know God.
  • 00:10:07.170 --> 00:10:10.090
  • Questions like these are flawed.
  • 00:10:10.100 --> 00:10:12.120
  • They're logically inconsistent.
  • 00:10:12.130 --> 00:10:14.120
  • It's like asking if God can make a square circle.
  • 00:10:14.130 --> 00:10:18.270
  • There isn't anything like that.
  • 00:10:18.280 --> 00:10:20.260
  • And the questions are self-refuting and irrational.
  • 00:10:20.270 --> 00:10:24.230
  • Whatever God does in the exercise of his power
  • 00:10:24.240 --> 00:10:28.060
  • is consistent with who he is as a person.
  • 00:10:28.070 --> 00:10:31.230
  • For example, Titus chapter 1, verse 2,
  • 00:10:31.240 --> 00:10:35.140
  • says here's something God cannot do.
  • 00:10:35.150 --> 00:10:38.040
  • God cannot lie.
  • 00:10:38.050 --> 00:10:41.230
  • Why can't he lie?
  • 00:10:41.240 --> 00:10:43.030
  • If he can do all things, why can't he lie?
  • 00:10:43.040 --> 00:10:44.280
  • Because it's against the nature of God and God never does
  • 00:10:44.290 --> 00:10:48.020
  • anything against his nature.
  • 00:10:48.030 --> 00:10:50.050
  • In that passage, the Apostle Paul wrote
  • 00:10:50.060 --> 00:10:52.030
  • that he was laboring for Christ
  • 00:10:52.040 --> 00:10:54.080
  • "in hope of eternal life which God,
  • 00:10:54.090 --> 00:10:56.130
  • who cannot lie, promised before time began."
  • 00:10:56.140 --> 00:11:00.030
  • God cannot lie because doing so would be inconsistent
  • 00:11:00.040 --> 00:11:03.130
  • with his nature.
  • 00:11:03.140 --> 00:11:05.160
  • James tells us that God cannot be tempted by evil,
  • 00:11:05.170 --> 00:11:09.070
  • nor does he tempt anyone else: "Let no one say
  • 00:11:09.080 --> 00:11:12.230
  • when he is tempted, 'I am tempted by God';
  • 00:11:12.240 --> 00:11:15.090
  • for God cannot be tempted by evil,
  • 00:11:15.100 --> 00:11:18.270
  • nor does He Himself tempt anyone."
  • 00:11:18.280 --> 00:11:23.170
  • God is immune from temptation because he's holy.
  • 00:11:23.180 --> 00:11:27.140
  • He is beyond temptation's lure and he himself
  • 00:11:27.150 --> 00:11:29.280
  • will never tempt us toward evil.
  • 00:11:29.290 --> 00:11:31.290
  • He may test us to make us better but he will never tempt us
  • 00:11:32.000 --> 00:11:35.100
  • to make us worse.
  • 00:11:35.110 --> 00:11:37.280
  • The Bible says God is omnipotent but his omnipotence
  • 00:11:37.290 --> 00:11:41.160
  • is guided by his nature and it is therefore impossible
  • 00:11:41.170 --> 00:11:45.290
  • for God to lie, impossible for God
  • 00:11:46.000 --> 00:11:48.040
  • to deny himself, and impossible for God
  • 00:11:48.050 --> 00:11:51.170
  • to be tempted by evil or tempt anyone else with evil.
  • 00:11:51.180 --> 00:11:55.210
  • There are some things God cannot do.
  • 00:11:55.220 --> 00:12:00.050
  • He can do all things, but he cannot do those things
  • 00:12:00.060 --> 00:12:04.000
  • which violate who he is.
  • 00:12:04.010 --> 00:12:06.230
  • The explanation of God's power.
  • 00:12:06.240 --> 00:12:09.080
  • Let me talk with you for just a moment
  • 00:12:09.090 --> 00:12:10.180
  • about the evidence of his power.
  • 00:12:10.190 --> 00:12:12.140
  • How do we know that God is so powerful?
  • 00:12:12.150 --> 00:12:15.130
  • I mean, if we were going to appear before a jury
  • 00:12:15.140 --> 00:12:17.120
  • and convince them of the power of God,
  • 00:12:17.130 --> 00:12:20.110
  • what evidence would we bring?
  • 00:12:20.120 --> 00:12:21.280
  • Well, let me tell you something.
  • 00:12:21.290 --> 00:12:23.080
  • The evidence is just as wide as the universe
  • 00:12:23.090 --> 00:12:25.060
  • and just as limitless as the galaxies.
  • 00:12:25.070 --> 00:12:28.140
  • There's no way you could ever present all the evidence
  • 00:12:28.150 --> 00:12:31.140
  • for the power of God.
  • 00:12:31.150 --> 00:12:33.040
  • So since we don't have an infinite time
  • 00:12:33.050 --> 00:12:36.030
  • and I only have a short time for this message,
  • 00:12:36.040 --> 00:12:38.160
  • I've chosen four evidences of the power of God.
  • 00:12:38.170 --> 00:12:42.090
  • Maybe the four most important ones.
  • 00:12:42.100 --> 00:12:45.010
  • First of all, the evidence of God's power in creation.
  • 00:12:45.020 --> 00:12:49.220
  • Here's what Romans says: "What may be known about God is plain.
  • 00:12:49.230 --> 00:12:54.280
  • For since the creation of the world
  • 00:12:54.290 --> 00:12:58.130
  • God's invisible qualities--
  • 00:12:58.140 --> 00:13:00.160
  • his eternal power and divine nature--
  • 00:13:00.170 --> 00:13:03.150
  • have been clearly seen, being understood
  • 00:13:03.160 --> 00:13:06.220
  • from what has been made."
  • 00:13:06.230 --> 00:13:09.190
  • How do we know God is powerful?
  • 00:13:09.200 --> 00:13:12.140
  • When we study creation, we see the power of God.
  • 00:13:12.150 --> 00:13:17.280
  • As I look at this and remember what the Scripture says,
  • 00:13:17.290 --> 00:13:21.230
  • I am genuinely surprised to see how many passages speak of this.
  • 00:13:21.240 --> 00:13:27.060
  • According to Genesis 1, "God said, 'Let there be light';
  • 00:13:27.070 --> 00:13:31.010
  • and there was light.
  • 00:13:31.020 --> 00:13:33.100
  • And God said, 'Let there be a firmament in the midst
  • 00:13:33.110 --> 00:13:35.270
  • of the waters,' and it was so.
  • 00:13:35.280 --> 00:13:38.200
  • And God said, 'Let the dry land appear';
  • 00:13:38.210 --> 00:13:40.190
  • and it appeared.
  • 00:13:40.200 --> 00:13:42.160
  • And God said, 'Let the earth bring forth grass,'
  • 00:13:42.170 --> 00:13:44.130
  • and the grass appeared and he said,
  • 00:13:44.140 --> 00:13:46.160
  • 'Let us make man in Our image," and he did.
  • 00:13:46.170 --> 00:13:50.130
  • In the image of God created He him,
  • 00:13:50.140 --> 00:13:52.280
  • male and female created He them."
  • 00:13:52.290 --> 00:13:56.170
  • God spoke and the world came into being.
  • 00:13:56.180 --> 00:14:01.060
  • I know the evolutionists don't like this truth
  • 00:14:01.070 --> 00:14:03.110
  • but it doesn't matter.
  • 00:14:03.120 --> 00:14:05.150
  • One of these days, they'll get it right.
  • 00:14:05.160 --> 00:14:08.190
  • But the Bible says God created the heavens and the earth.
  • 00:14:08.200 --> 00:14:14.260
  • Argue with it if you want, believe it or not,
  • 00:14:14.270 --> 00:14:17.290
  • you cannot mess with the truth.
  • 00:14:18.000 --> 00:14:21.190
  • The world is the world that God spoke into being.
  • 00:14:21.200 --> 00:14:26.040
  • Frankly, as hard as it is to believe that,
  • 00:14:26.050 --> 00:14:28.280
  • that makes a whole lot more sense to me than the modern
  • 00:14:28.290 --> 00:14:31.010
  • explanations that I read about in the evolutionary documents.
  • 00:14:31.020 --> 00:14:36.110
  • His power was conveyed to build this world by the simple
  • 00:14:36.120 --> 00:14:40.230
  • syllables of his speaking.
  • 00:14:40.240 --> 00:14:44.130
  • Psalm says it this way: "By the word of the Lord
  • 00:14:44.140 --> 00:14:46.280
  • the heavens were made, and all the host
  • 00:14:46.290 --> 00:14:49.260
  • of them by the breath of His mouth.
  • 00:14:49.270 --> 00:14:52.100
  • He spoke, and it was done; He commanded,
  • 00:14:52.110 --> 00:14:56.180
  • and it stood fast."
  • 00:14:56.190 --> 00:14:59.020
  • And then there is his preservation.
  • 00:14:59.030 --> 00:15:01.260
  • How many of you know that this world is held together
  • 00:15:01.270 --> 00:15:04.210
  • by the power of God?
  • 00:15:04.220 --> 00:15:07.090
  • The God who created the universe is the one,
  • 00:15:07.100 --> 00:15:10.080
  • according to the New Testament, "in whom all things consist,"
  • 00:15:10.090 --> 00:15:15.010
  • which means he is the glue that holds it all together.
  • 00:15:15.020 --> 00:15:20.010
  • God holds the whole world together by his power.
  • 00:15:20.020 --> 00:15:25.070
  • And you know what that means to you and me?
  • 00:15:26.160 --> 00:15:29.140
  • If God can hold the world together,
  • 00:15:29.150 --> 00:15:32.010
  • I think he can probably hold you together.
  • 00:15:32.020 --> 00:15:35.030
  • Isaiah said: "Even to your old age,"
  • 00:15:35.040 --> 00:15:37.170
  • oh, do I love this.
  • 00:15:37.180 --> 00:15:39.190
  • "Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he,
  • 00:15:39.200 --> 00:15:43.120
  • I am he who will sustain you.
  • 00:15:43.130 --> 00:15:45.110
  • I have made you and I will carry you;
  • 00:15:45.120 --> 00:15:47.160
  • I will sustain you and I will rescue you."
  • 00:15:47.170 --> 00:15:50.140
  • Isaiah said, "Even when you're getting old and
  • 00:15:50.150 --> 00:15:52.220
  • you get gray hair, Almighty God is still holding you together."
  • 00:15:52.230 --> 00:15:55.290
  • How do you know he can do it?
  • 00:15:56.000 --> 00:15:57.090
  • He holds the whole world together.
  • 00:15:57.100 --> 00:15:59.170
  • He can handle you.
  • 00:15:59.180 --> 00:16:01.280
  • And he can handle me.
  • 00:16:01.290 --> 00:16:04.110
  • God's endless energy and his omnipotent power
  • 00:16:04.120 --> 00:16:08.010
  • is something to behold.
  • 00:16:08.020 --> 00:16:11.170
  • And then let me talk just a moment about the evidence
  • 00:16:11.180 --> 00:16:13.240
  • of God's power in the Resurrection.
  • 00:16:13.250 --> 00:16:17.020
  • In creation we see it, in God's preservation
  • 00:16:17.030 --> 00:16:19.270
  • of the world we see it, but mostly in
  • 00:16:19.280 --> 00:16:22.110
  • the New Testament we see it
  • 00:16:22.120 --> 00:16:24.040
  • in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:16:24.050 --> 00:16:26.100
  • "His incomparably great power for us who believe.
  • 00:16:28.000 --> 00:16:32.290
  • That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted
  • 00:16:33.000 --> 00:16:36.150
  • when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him
  • 00:16:36.160 --> 00:16:39.220
  • at his right hand in the heavenly realms,
  • 00:16:39.230 --> 00:16:41.250
  • far above all rule and authority, power and dominion."
  • 00:16:41.260 --> 00:16:45.040
  • God, by his exerted power, reversed the process of death,
  • 00:16:45.050 --> 00:16:49.260
  • overturned the process of decay, caused a silent heart
  • 00:16:49.270 --> 00:16:53.090
  • to beat again, made our Lord's closed eyes
  • 00:16:53.100 --> 00:16:56.040
  • to open, his lifeless corpse to walk again,
  • 00:16:56.050 --> 00:16:59.060
  • and there's so much more.
  • 00:16:59.070 --> 00:17:01.010
  • Jesus didn't simply return to life,
  • 00:17:01.020 --> 00:17:03.050
  • he wasn't merely resuscitated.
  • 00:17:03.060 --> 00:17:05.110
  • He was resurrected with a glorified body,
  • 00:17:05.120 --> 00:17:07.230
  • one incapable of aging or pain or sickness or death.
  • 00:17:07.240 --> 00:17:12.010
  • He was resurrected with eternal power.
  • 00:17:12.020 --> 00:17:15.100
  • He came out of the grave.
  • 00:17:15.110 --> 00:17:17.180
  • The Resurrection is one of the great evidences
  • 00:17:17.190 --> 00:17:19.260
  • of the power of God.
  • 00:17:19.270 --> 00:17:22.020
  • But you know, all of these are great.
  • 00:17:22.220 --> 00:17:24.130
  • Creation, preservation, resurrection.
  • 00:17:24.140 --> 00:17:28.000
  • But you and I live in an age
  • 00:17:28.010 --> 00:17:31.010
  • when the power of God is demonstrated all the time,
  • 00:17:31.020 --> 00:17:35.190
  • and it's the greatest power of all.
  • 00:17:35.200 --> 00:17:37.290
  • I call it the power of transformation.
  • 00:17:38.000 --> 00:17:41.150
  • Romans 1:16 says: "For I am not ashamed
  • 00:17:41.250 --> 00:17:45.050
  • of the gospel of Christ," watch this,
  • 00:17:45.060 --> 00:17:48.010
  • "for it is the power of God to salvation."
  • 00:17:48.020 --> 00:17:54.140
  • How many of you know it takes the power of God
  • 00:17:54.150 --> 00:17:56.290
  • to get us saved?
  • 00:17:57.000 --> 00:17:59.140
  • Some of you know that more than others.
  • 00:17:59.150 --> 00:18:01.190
  • Maybe you grew up in a Christian home and you've always been
  • 00:18:01.200 --> 00:18:03.260
  • around the faith and one day you just accepted Christ
  • 00:18:03.270 --> 00:18:06.020
  • 'cause it seemed like the natural thing to do.
  • 00:18:06.030 --> 00:18:08.180
  • But some of you came out of a life that wasn't anything
  • 00:18:08.190 --> 00:18:10.290
  • close to that and the Almighty God reached down
  • 00:18:11.000 --> 00:18:14.170
  • and he grabbed hold of your life and his power was displayed.
  • 00:18:14.180 --> 00:18:20.220
  • So we're almost finished but I don't wanna leave this message
  • 00:18:20.230 --> 00:18:25.040
  • without giving you a couple of takeaways for your own life.
  • 00:18:25.050 --> 00:18:30.190
  • First of all, in the experience of God's power,
  • 00:18:30.200 --> 00:18:34.230
  • the power of God should energize our worship of God.
  • 00:18:34.240 --> 00:18:38.200
  • One of the things that's amazing to me as I study these various
  • 00:18:38.210 --> 00:18:41.100
  • attributes of God is all of them have a connection to worship.
  • 00:18:41.110 --> 00:18:47.020
  • The whole issue, men and women, is this:
  • 00:18:47.030 --> 00:18:49.170
  • the more you know about God, the more you love God.
  • 00:18:49.180 --> 00:18:54.020
  • And the more you love God, the more you wanna worship God.
  • 00:18:54.030 --> 00:18:57.120
  • Whenever we sing our songs like, "All hail the power,"
  • 00:18:57.130 --> 00:19:00.240
  • or "Oh, Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder,"
  • 00:19:00.250 --> 00:19:03.150
  • when we sing these songs of worship,
  • 00:19:03.160 --> 00:19:05.210
  • we are reminding ourselves of the greatness of Almighty God,
  • 00:19:05.220 --> 00:19:09.090
  • the omnipotent God of the universe,
  • 00:19:09.100 --> 00:19:11.180
  • the Creator of heaven and earth, the sustainer of heaven
  • 00:19:11.190 --> 00:19:14.280
  • and earth, the source of the Resurrection,
  • 00:19:14.290 --> 00:19:17.130
  • and the reason why you and I are on our way to heaven,
  • 00:19:17.140 --> 00:19:20.080
  • hallelujah.
  • 00:19:20.090 --> 00:19:22.290
  • The power of God should energize our worship and,
  • 00:19:23.000 --> 00:19:25.290
  • secondly, the power of God should encourage our walk.
  • 00:19:26.000 --> 00:19:30.010
  • "Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace
  • 00:19:30.020 --> 00:19:34.000
  • in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power
  • 00:19:34.010 --> 00:19:38.120
  • of the Holy Spirit," the third member
  • 00:19:38.130 --> 00:19:41.000
  • of the triune God.
  • 00:19:41.010 --> 00:19:43.040
  • And then, the power of God not only should energize our worship
  • 00:19:43.050 --> 00:19:47.220
  • and encourage our walk, the power of God
  • 00:19:47.230 --> 00:19:50.100
  • should empower our work.
  • 00:19:50.110 --> 00:19:52.260
  • Sometimes we feel like we don't have the energy to do it.
  • 00:19:52.270 --> 00:19:56.070
  • Sometimes we get up and think, "Oh, I gotta go do this.
  • 00:19:56.080 --> 00:19:59.030
  • I'm on the team. I do this."
  • 00:19:59.040 --> 00:20:01.180
  • Well, listen to this.
  • 00:20:01.190 --> 00:20:03.080
  • "God is the one who we proclaim, admonishing and teaching
  • 00:20:03.090 --> 00:20:08.180
  • everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone
  • 00:20:08.190 --> 00:20:11.290
  • fully mature in Christ.
  • 00:20:12.000 --> 00:20:13.180
  • To this end I strenuously contend," now watch this,
  • 00:20:13.190 --> 00:20:15.270
  • "with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me."
  • 00:20:15.280 --> 00:20:22.040
  • Here's what I know.
  • 00:20:22.050 --> 00:20:24.090
  • It's not what I always practice.
  • 00:20:24.100 --> 00:20:26.080
  • It's what I know.
  • 00:20:26.090 --> 00:20:28.010
  • You cannot do the work of God in your own power.
  • 00:20:28.020 --> 00:20:32.120
  • If you try, you will get only what you can do,
  • 00:20:32.130 --> 00:20:36.050
  • but you will never discover what God can do.
  • 00:20:36.060 --> 00:20:39.170
  • When we get involved in serving the Lord,
  • 00:20:39.180 --> 00:20:42.010
  • if we're not careful we get into our own persona.
  • 00:20:42.020 --> 00:20:44.260
  • We start working hard, adding more hours and trying
  • 00:20:44.270 --> 00:20:47.210
  • our very best to make it happen, and all of that is a part
  • 00:20:47.220 --> 00:20:50.120
  • of being in ministry but, men and women,
  • 00:20:50.130 --> 00:20:53.150
  • God never intended you and I to take on the burden
  • 00:20:53.160 --> 00:20:57.140
  • of God's work in our own power while he allows the power
  • 00:20:57.150 --> 00:21:01.090
  • of Almighty God we've been talking about here today
  • 00:21:01.100 --> 00:21:04.060
  • to be unaccessed by us during the process.
  • 00:21:04.070 --> 00:21:07.150
  • We have to stop sometimes and back up and say,
  • 00:21:07.160 --> 00:21:10.170
  • "Lord God, this is too big for me.
  • 00:21:10.180 --> 00:21:13.000
  • This is too much for me.
  • 00:21:13.010 --> 00:21:14.220
  • If you don't fill me with your power,
  • 00:21:14.230 --> 00:21:16.200
  • this can't happen.
  • 00:21:16.210 --> 00:21:18.250
  • Not only can it not be born, it cannot be sustained.
  • 00:21:18.260 --> 00:21:22.270
  • And, oh, I wish I could bring before you the illustrations
  • 00:21:22.280 --> 00:21:26.020
  • that I know of people who keep trying
  • 00:21:26.030 --> 00:21:28.020
  • to do the mighty work of God without any of God's power.
  • 00:21:28.030 --> 00:21:33.100
  • And we see it so often in the secular realm.
  • 00:21:33.110 --> 00:21:35.270
  • In our churches instead of teaching people how to access
  • 00:21:35.280 --> 00:21:38.130
  • the power of God we send them
  • 00:21:38.140 --> 00:21:40.100
  • to positive mental attitude seminars.
  • 00:21:40.110 --> 00:21:43.010
  • We start holding all of the secular business seminars
  • 00:21:43.020 --> 00:21:46.050
  • in our own churches to tell people how to do
  • 00:21:46.060 --> 00:21:48.120
  • the work of God in their own strength
  • 00:21:48.130 --> 00:21:50.070
  • when it was never meant to be done that way
  • 00:21:50.080 --> 00:21:52.180
  • in the first place.
  • 00:21:52.190 --> 00:21:54.180
  • And so we struggle and we fail and we fall on our face.
  • 00:21:54.190 --> 00:21:56.050
  • Are those principles good? Yes.
  • 00:21:56.060 --> 00:21:58.240
  • Can we learn from them? Yes.
  • 00:21:58.250 --> 00:22:00.060
  • But they cannot be the source of our strength and our power.
  • 00:22:00.070 --> 00:22:03.080
  • Only our strength and power from God can enable us and empower us
  • 00:22:03.090 --> 00:22:08.130
  • to do the work of God.
  • 00:22:08.140 --> 00:22:11.120
  • Most Christians operate in the energy of the flesh
  • 00:22:11.130 --> 00:22:13.260
  • about 80% of the time, according to what people have discussed.
  • 00:22:13.270 --> 00:22:17.260
  • Sometimes I do that but I'm always sorry when I do.
  • 00:22:17.270 --> 00:22:22.260
  • You know, sometimes in a Christian life
  • 00:22:22.270 --> 00:22:24.060
  • you have a power outage.
  • 00:22:24.070 --> 00:22:25.160
  • You know what that is?
  • 00:22:25.170 --> 00:22:26.260
  • Well, it's going to the doctor and finding
  • 00:22:26.270 --> 00:22:28.260
  • there's something wrong.
  • 00:22:28.270 --> 00:22:31.100
  • It's going into your office at work and being laid off.
  • 00:22:31.110 --> 00:22:34.200
  • It's getting a phone call that your child is in trouble.
  • 00:22:34.210 --> 00:22:36.250
  • It's hearing the news that a loved one is at death's door.
  • 00:22:36.260 --> 00:22:39.110
  • It's a plunge in the stock market
  • 00:22:39.120 --> 00:22:41.090
  • just when you're about ready to retire.
  • 00:22:41.100 --> 00:22:43.290
  • These things happen to you, they happen to me,
  • 00:22:44.000 --> 00:22:46.060
  • and they have for many years to many people.
  • 00:22:46.070 --> 00:22:49.280
  • That's just when we learn to switch power sources
  • 00:22:49.290 --> 00:22:52.130
  • and begin drawing from the transformer of God's power
  • 00:22:52.140 --> 00:22:57.160
  • 'cause we find out we don't have the strength to make it.
  • 00:22:57.170 --> 00:23:00.180
  • Why do you think people say, when they're going
  • 00:23:00.190 --> 00:23:02.130
  • through tough times, "Dr. Jeremiah,
  • 00:23:02.140 --> 00:23:04.090
  • I felt like God was closer to me than he's ever been
  • 00:23:04.100 --> 00:23:06.250
  • my whole life"?
  • 00:23:06.260 --> 00:23:08.060
  • 'Cause you switched off your power and you switched on God's,
  • 00:23:08.070 --> 00:23:12.080
  • and you found out his power is sufficient.
  • 00:23:12.090 --> 00:23:16.070
  • God is waiting to exercise his power in your behalf.
  • 00:23:16.080 --> 00:23:20.120
  • If you're here today and you don't know Jesus Christ
  • 00:23:20.130 --> 00:23:24.060
  • and maybe you think your life is out of control
  • 00:23:24.070 --> 00:23:26.140
  • and there's nothing that can change it,
  • 00:23:26.150 --> 00:23:28.160
  • I'm here to tell you if you haven't tried Jesus,
  • 00:23:28.170 --> 00:23:32.090
  • you're short-circuiting your whole life.
  • 00:23:32.100 --> 00:23:35.140
  • Until you try Jesus, you haven't tried the ultimate answer.
  • 00:23:35.150 --> 00:23:40.070
  • Jesus is the ultimate answer to whatever it is
  • 00:23:40.080 --> 00:23:43.220
  • that's happening in your life.
  • 00:23:43.230 --> 00:23:45.090
  • If you do not know Jesus Christ, tap into the power that's
  • 00:23:45.100 --> 00:23:48.210
  • waiting for you to change your life and make you a new person.
  • 00:23:48.220 --> 00:23:52.260
  • If you're a Christian and you're going through
  • 00:23:52.270 --> 00:23:54.200
  • a tough time and you wonder, "Is there any hope?"
  • 00:23:54.210 --> 00:23:57.020
  • Let me tell you, there is hope.
  • 00:23:57.030 --> 00:23:58.140
  • Nothing is too hard for our God.
  • 00:23:58.150 --> 00:24:01.240
  • Nothing is too hard.
  • 00:24:01.250 --> 00:24:03.110
  • He never sleeps.
  • 00:24:03.120 --> 00:24:04.210
  • He's not ever weary.
  • 00:24:04.220 --> 00:24:06.250
  • Whatever it is you need, he is able to do.
  • 00:24:06.260 --> 00:24:11.160
  • And don't give up on Jesus.
  • 00:24:11.170 --> 00:24:14.220
  • Don't ever give up on him.
  • 00:24:14.230 --> 00:24:17.170
  • You may feel like giving up on yourself and sometimes you have
  • 00:24:17.180 --> 00:24:20.190
  • to give up on yourself before you come to Jesus but I came
  • 00:24:20.200 --> 00:24:25.090
  • here today to tell you how wonderful is the power of God.
  • 00:24:25.100 --> 00:24:28.190
  • But most of all to say, "Don't go away

  • announcer: And now, with one last word
  • 00:25:41.080 --> 00:25:42.260
  • for today's program, here is Dr. Jeremiah.
  • 00:25:42.270 --> 00:25:45.120
  • Dr. Jeremiah: The Bible says the power of God is displayed
  • 00:25:47.000 --> 00:25:49.110
  • throughout his creation.
  • 00:25:49.120 --> 00:25:51.220
  • His power is impossible to miss.
  • 00:25:51.230 --> 00:25:54.220
  • Yet the most remarkable and surprising display of his power
  • 00:25:54.230 --> 00:25:59.120
  • is often ignored by many people and that is the Resurrection
  • 00:25:59.130 --> 00:26:03.180
  • of his own Son from the dead.
  • 00:26:03.190 --> 00:26:07.130
  • God raised his Son Jesus from the dead to demonstrate
  • 00:26:07.140 --> 00:26:11.230
  • the reality of eternal life for all who will place
  • 00:26:11.240 --> 00:26:14.290
  • their faith in him.
  • 00:26:15.000 --> 00:26:17.130
  • You cannot fully experience God's power in your life
  • 00:26:17.140 --> 00:26:20.210
  • until you have asked Jesus Christ to be in it first.
  • 00:26:20.220 --> 00:26:25.230
  • If you have never placed your faith in Christ I would love
  • 00:26:25.240 --> 00:26:28.280
  • to send you two free gifts from Turning Point
  • 00:26:28.290 --> 00:26:31.250
  • that will help you do just that.
  • 00:26:31.260 --> 00:26:33.210
  • One is our booklet called, "Your Greatest Turning Point,"
  • 00:26:34.230 --> 00:26:37.110
  • and the other is our monthly devotional magazine called,
  • 00:26:37.120 --> 00:26:40.150
  • "Turning Points."
  • 00:26:40.160 --> 00:26:42.090
  • We will gladly send both these resources to you free of charge
  • 00:26:42.100 --> 00:26:45.120
  • if you'll contact us here at, "Turning Point" today.
  • 00:26:45.130 --> 00:26:48.280
  • male announcer: Next time on, "Turning Point."
  • 00:26:51.010 --> 00:26:53.060
  • Dr. Jeremiah: No matter how hard it may seem to us
  • 00:26:53.170 --> 00:26:55.120
  • right now, maybe you're going through a difficult place,
  • 00:26:55.130 --> 00:26:58.020
  • maybe you've never been in a place like this before,
  • 00:26:58.030 --> 00:27:00.170
  • but if you look you will see the goodness of God,
  • 00:27:00.180 --> 00:27:03.250
  • for it's everywhere.
  • 00:27:03.260 --> 00:27:05.150
  • It's only when we block it out because we put our problems
