The Powers Of God

"I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty" (Revelation 1:8).

In these days of rampant humanism, blatant materialism, and effete religionism, the very concept of an all-powerful God who created, controls, and judges all things seems anachronistic, but God is still there and is still the Almighty.

Three Greek words are translated "power" in Scripture-exousia ("authority"), dunamis ("ability"), and kratos ("strength"). Each is attributed in unlimited extent to God the Creator as incarnate in Christ the Redeemer. "All power [`authority'] is given unto me in heaven and in earth" (Matthew 28:18). "For thine is the kingdom, and the power [`ability'], and the glory, for ever" (Matthew 6:13). "That ye may know . . . the exceeding greatness of His power [`ability'] to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power [`strength'], Which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power [`authority'], and might, and dominion" (Ephesians 1:18-21).

He is the "Almighty God" of Abraham (Genesis 17:1), "the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth" (Isaiah 40:28). "Our God is in the heavens: He hath done whatsoever He hath pleased" (Psalm 115:3).

God can do whatever He pleases, except anything contrary to His nature. He "cannot lie" (Titus 1:2), for He is "the truth" (John 14:6). His inspired word is inerrant-"the scripture of truth" (Daniel 10:21). We can be certain that He did not "create" the world by evolution, for that would be contradicted both by His infallible Word and by His omnipotence. Being all-powerful, God would surely not create by such a cruel, inefficient process as evolution. HMM
