You have no idea who you are. The power you have which was CREATED into you by God is tiny compared to the power you could have. If you REALLY believe God is as great and mighty, as you claim you believe, act like it. You and I may be passing up the exquisite opportunity to really be like Jesus to this world.

Here is a man who is not giving a spiritual message. But, in his teaching about our physical and mental make up humanly, he is zeroing in on a truth that every Christian believes. The problem is, we do not believe it enough to act upon it.

This is the belief as given in the Bible:

Philippians 4:12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Do you really believe that?

Listen to Dr. Bruce Lipton all the way to the end of his presentation. The last few words he speaks are profound. If we believers were to LIVE this way together as a spiritual body (which is literally what we are called in the Bible), we would turn the world upside down. 

Why are we not doing so?

1 Corinthians 12:20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.
21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.
22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:
23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.
24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked:
25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.
26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.

Pastor, if you were to convince every member of you local church fellowship that they are put there by God to believe they are the revelation of Jesus Christ to this world, what would happen? It is unimaginable.

I have heard many stories as I grew up on the missionfield where the Body of Christ came together, and the power of God broke loose in massive miraculous fashion. And, I am not talking about some Charismatic mad house event. Sometimes believers came together expecting a handful to be present, and thousands showed up. How is this possible?

God, through his Spirit, sends the message, and the whole Body acts upon it. Often, unsaved sinners are virtually overwhelmed by this power, and many confess faith in Jesus Christ.

It ain't over until the last trumpet sounds. There is no excuse for taking the nocibo of Satan who tells us that the End Times are doomed to be dull and fade to gray in the Lord's Church. Start preaching and teaching like you KNOW who Jesus is, and you EXPECT him to be fully active in every member of your assembly.

Deiter Schmall was a missionary doctor in Ethiopia when we worked there. He was known as a mad German. The point of his life was to pack it full of himself as Christ had made him that people knew who Jesus was and what he was like. Deiter seemed to have unlimited reserves of physical, mental, and emotional power. He ministered to people during a terrible famine, and he roared back and forth over the nation feeding people and doctoring them.

There was something about Deiter that was amazing. When he went into high gear and was hammering problems and looking for solutions, he virtually dragged other Christians into his wake, and they rose to the challenge with him. He never went anywhere without an Ethiopian pastor with him. Every venture to feed people or heal the sick HAD TO BE an opportunity to give the Gospel to someone, and the national pastors caught fire just being with Deiter.

Luke 8:43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,
44 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.
45 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.
47 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.

Can you tell when the power of God, through Jesus Christ, has gone out of you? Something happened, someone made a comment, or some disaster was prevented, and it happened just as you walked up. Who are you anyway?

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

Who became reconciled to God recently because of you? Who now believes the Word of God because they heard it and saw its effect IN YOU?
