The Dynamics of ChristsResurrection
THE DYNAMIC POWER OF CHRISTS RESURRECTION WILL WORK IN AND THROUGH
ANY OF 115 WHO OPEN OUR HEARTS COMPLETELY TO HIM. The following Scriptures
are drawn from Lukes Gospel with some reference to the Prophets
of the Old Covenant, as those men of old foresaw the power of His coming.
DAY 1A Prophecy that the Same Spirit and Power Working in Elijah
Would Work in John the Baptist, the Forerunner of Jesus
Luke 1:17 And he shall go
before Him in the Spirit and Power (dúnamis) of Elias (Elijah), to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient
to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the
· FATHER, let the Spirit that worked in Elijah and John
the Baptist work in Your ministers today, to prepare a people for the
Day of the Lord. Give us the grace to yield to Your Spirit and power.
O, DEAR LORD, I want no blight left in my life when 1 stand before You.
The Powerful Prophecy of Isaiah
regarding John the BaptistIsa 40:3-5 (See also Mat 4:5)
DAY 2Jesus was conceived in the womb of Mary by the power of God.
Luke 1:35 And the angel
answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and
the power (dúnamis) of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore
also that Holy Thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the
Son of God. (Mary was not the mother of God, but of the Son of God.)
· FATHER, as the Holy Spirit came upon Mary, so let
Him come upon His Body the Church. Let Him bring to reality Christs
presence in the church of which I am a part here locally. Let Him fall
upon believers who are living today in danger and in fear of their lives.
The Powerful Prophecy of Isaiah
about the birth of the Lord Jesus
Isa 7:14 (Note: This should read
not a virgin, but the virgin.)
DAY 3The tests the devil put Jesus through did not leave Him weaker,
Luke 4: 13,14 And when the
devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from Him for a season.
And Jesus returned in the power (dúnamis) of the Spirit into Galilee:
and there went out a fame (report) of Him through
all the region round about.
· DEAR FATHER, send Your Spirit upon us so we can become
stronger through the attacks of the devil. Let what he seeks to do to
defeat us only bring us forth as overcomers. We rise up in Your love
A Prophecy from Isaiah about
the Spirit of the Lord Equipping His MinistersIsa 61:1-3
DAY 4At the beginning of Jesuss ministry, by Gods power,
He dealt with unclean spirits.
Luke 4:35,36 And Jesus
rebuked him, saving, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the
devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him
not. And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saving, What
a word is this! for with authority and power (dúnamis) He commandeth
the unclean spirits, and they come out.
· DEAR LORD, open the eyes of Your Church so we can
see when demons are at work. Teach us how and when to deal with them.
In my own life, let me see what they might be doing so I can renounce
their work and command them to departall in Jesus Name.
Jesus dealt not only with demons,
but with the destructive forces of natureMt 8:23-27
DAY 5Gods merciful power came even to the religious leaders
who often withstood Jesus.
Luke 5:17 And it came to pass
on a certain day, as He was teaching, that there were Pharisees and
doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of
Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power (dúnamis) of the Lord
was present to heal them.
· LORD, bring Your power to heal upon us as we gather
to hear Your Word. Even though we may be religious, we are a needy people.
Show us Your mercy and let it come over on all the poor and simple round
Jesus was particularly drawn
to the poor and needy among the peopleLk 7:20-23
DAY 6Healing power went out from Jesus to a woman who dared touch
Luke 8:43-45a,46b And a woman
having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living
upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, came behind Him, and
touched the border of His garment: and immediately her issue of blood
stanched. And Jesus said, Who touched Me? ... for I perceive
that virtue (dúnamis) is gone out of me.
· O, DEAR LORD, I am needy like that woman with the
issue of blood! And, there is very much all around me to press through.
But, I believe Your grace and power will receive me and heal me. O,
Yes, I believe! I press through to touch You!
Those who believe on Him will
not be put to shameI Pet 2:6-10
DAY 7Jesuss desire was for His disciples to have power, but
there was a greater joy for them.
Luke 10:19,20 Behold, I give
unto you power (dúnamis) to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over
all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto
you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
· LORD, I long for that power You promised us. I thank
You for every its every manifestation that has come through me. But,
my rejoicing is in You. And I rejoice that my name is in Your Book of
Life. What grace!
There is a secret place of
protection for all believersPs 91:1-16
DAY 8The last Word Jesus spoke before His ascension was that the
disciples should wait for the promised power from the Father.
Luke 24:49-51 And, behold,
I send the promise of My Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of
Jerusa1em, until ye be endued with power (dúnamis) from on high. And
he led them out as far as to Bethany, and He lifted up his hands, and
blessed them. And it came to pass, while He blessed them, He was parted
from them, and carried up into heaven.
· LORD, teach us to wait before You. Weve drifted
away from abiding in Your presence. Weve forgotten to wait for
You. Please forgive us and bring upon us a longing desire just to wait
before You till Your Spirit falls on us.
The disciples waited and the
promised Spirit came upon themAc 2:1-8
THE POWER OFTHFI
HOLY SPIRIT CONTINUED AT WORK THROUGH THE DISCIPLES AFTER JESUS WENT
BACK To THE FATHER. It is amazing to us that the Book of Acts has no
closing. Can this not be an indication that the working of the Gods
Spirit and power is to continue with us even till today?
DAY 9The history of the church began with the promise from Jesus
that the power of the Holy Spirit would come upon them.
Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive
power, (dúnamis) after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye
shall be witnesses unto Me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and
in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
· DEAR LORD, let this power come upon Your church for
this awesome hour. For too long weve worshiped with a form of
godliness, but with no power. Please forgive us for not waiting on You,
till Your power falls on us once again. Let this begin with mewith
The people of Israel were Gods
witnesses; we are witnesses for JesusIs 43:10-12
DAY 10Peter took no glory for the miracles that came when he ministered.
Acts 3:12 And when
Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel
ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own
power (dúnamis) or holiness we had made this man to walk? The God of
Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified
His Son Jesus...
· LORD, even if You do use me, I want no glory for it.
Please make me into a vessel in whom Your Spirit will move. There are
people around me for whom there is no hope unless a miracle comes to
them. Oh, let me become a person through whom that miracle can come!
Miracles are to be manifest
in the ChurchI Cor 12:7-11
DAY 11That miracles take place does not mean that everyone will accept
them as from God.
Acts 4:5-7 And it came
to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes, and
Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as
many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were gathered together
at Jerusalem. And when they had set them (Peter and John) in the
midst, they asked. By what power (dúnamis), or by what name, have ye
· LORD, I am ready, if need be, to suffer for Your Name.
I have opened myself to the movements of Your Holy Spirit and some of
my friends dont understand me. I miss their coming around. But
I had rather have You at work in my life. Help me live a life that is
a testimony to them.
From the beginning there have
been those who suffered for proclaiming the GospelAc 5:40-42
DAY 12For those of us who accept them, miracles bring a further evidence
of Gods grace.
Acts 4:33 And with great power
(dúnamis) gave the Apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord
Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.
· FATHER, I know that if a miracle comes to my life,
it can only come as a result of Your grace. Oh, but I am so needy! I
look to You for a miracle today. This situation I am in can only be
solved by Your grace and by Your miracle power.
Peter, imprisoned for preaching.
was released through a miracle of Gods graceAc 12:1-5
DAY 13We must never forget that from the beginning some have given
Acts 6:8 And Stephen, full
of faith and power (dúnamis), did great wonders and miracles among the
Acts 7:57,58 Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped
their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, And cast him out of the
city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a
young mans feet, whose name was Saul (later known as Paul the Apostle).
· LORD JESUS, what a testimony Stephen holds for us
today! Sometimes Im too timid to even witness to a waitress, or
a bartender. Please forgive me. Make my life pure so I wont be
afraid others will see things in me that would make them question my
witness for You.
Jesus Himself was threatened
with stones from some of the religious peopleJn 10:22-30
DAY 14Some people will follow miracles, but not with a true commitment
to the Lord.
Acts 8:13 Then Simon himself
believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and
wondered, beholding the miracles (dúnamis) and signs, which were done. Ac 8:18,19 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the Apostles
hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, saying, Give
me also this power...
· LORD, teach me to give and give and give, but not
in order to win some gift from You. I want my heart to be pure toward
You. Help me learn to give whether I receive anything in return. I want
to give just out of love for You and what You have done to redeem my
The Lord Jesus is our example
in givingII Cor 8:8-14
DAY 15Paul, whose Epistles we receive, was a man who moved by the
power of God.
Acts 19:11,12 And God wrought
special miracles (dúnamis) by the hands of Paul: so that from his body
were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases
departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.
· FATHER, this is beyond my understanding, how handkerchiefs
going out from Paul could carry healing. But I believe. And I believe
such could even be so today. I thank You for Paul and the rich legacy
he left us especially his Epistles. I love their Word.
We take note of what Paul preached
and taught in his closing daysAc 28:30,31
IN HIS EPISTLES,
PAUL REVEALED MUCH ABOUT THE POWER. WHAT IT IS AND HOW IT WILL WORK
IN US. For the conclusion of this prayer study we will soak ourselves
in some of the things revealed through him.
DAY 16Paul saw that the Gospel of Christ was the very power of God.
Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed
of the Gospel of Christ: for it is the power (dúnamis) of God unto salvation
to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
· DEAR FATHER, ever since I believed the Gospel, Ive
known it is, indeed, very powerful. It changed my life. As I learn more
of it, let it change me yet more and more, till my life fully reflects
the life of Your Son.
Paul ministered the Gospel
in demonstration of Spirit and of powerI Cor 2:1-5
DAY 17He saw that God could take the ungodly and show His power through
Romans 9:17 For the scripture
saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up,
that I might show My power (dúnamis) in thee, and that My name might
be declared throughout all the earth.
· FATHER, for this terrifying hour in which we now live,
please show Your power through the wicked. Even in our own lives here
in this community, bring Your ordinations to pass through those who
know You not.
We take note how simply Paul
could express the Gospel.Acts 16:28-34
DAY 18The power of the Holy Spirit will bring increase to our joy,
peace and hope.
Romans 15:13 Now the God of
hose fill you with all joy and Peace in believing, that ye may abound
in hope, through the Power (dúnamis) of the Holy Ghost.
· DEAR LORD, I praise You for the joy and peace You
are now bringing in our lives. Even in the face of this trial, You are
causing our hope to abound. What praise is due unto Your holy Name!
Oh, I praise You indeed!
The fruit of the Holy Spirits
work in us brings joy and peace, commodities of Gods Kingdom
Rom 14:17; Gal 5:22,23
DAY 19Fully preaching the Gospel of Christ will bring the power of
signs and wonders.
Romans 15:19 Through mighty (in the power [dúnamis] of) signs and wonders,
by the power (dúnamis) of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem,
and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully Preached the Gospel of
· DEAR LORD, let us see true Full Gospel preaching arise
throughout the land. Let it come in the nations that are now under attack.
Let it come in Israel, Palestine, Iraq, North Korea, plus the many
other nations where believers are under persecution. Let it come here.
Even under persecution, Paul
failed not to proclaim the Full GospelAc 20:17-23
DAY 20The Logos of the Cross is the power of God.
I Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching (Gr. logos, the Word) of the cross is to them
that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the Power
(dúnamis) of God.
LORD, let me know the Word of the Cross. Let it work
in my life. Let it set me free from the sin that has pulled me down.
Let it bring me to the power of Your Resurrection. Let it be released
everywhere the Gospel is preached.
The clear Word of the Cross
is defined in this Romans passageRom 6:1-11
DAY 21The proclamation of Christ is in itself the power of God.
I Corinthians 1:22-24 For the Jews
require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: but we preach Christ
crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
but unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power
(dúnamis) of God, and the wisdom of God.
· FATHER, let Your pure wisdom come upon those who proclaim
the Gospel. Let Christ be proclaimed in power. Oh, indeed, let the proclamation
of Him bring the release of His power upon all who hear and believe!
Let the conviction of Your Spirit attend this preaching.
Christ is the powerful Head
of all thingsIsa 9:6, Col 1:16,-19
DAY 22When we know the Kingdom of God, we discover the power of God.
I Corinthians 4:20 For the Kingdom
of God is not in word, but in power.
Colossians 1:12,13 Giving thanks
unto the Father, Which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance
of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power (exousía, authority) of (the) darkness, and hath
translated us into the Kingdom of His dear Son.
· DEAR LORD, I praise You that Your Kingdom is everlasting.
I praise You that it is filled with mercy and truth. I bless Your Name
that You are bringing Your Church to know Your Kingdom and Your power.
Let it come in my life. Let the power of Your Kingdom rule over the
government of our Land.
Jesus taught us to pray that
His Kingdom would comeMt 6:9-13
DAY 23God has set ministries of power in the Church.
I Corinthians 12:28 And God hath
set some in the Church, first Apostles, secondarily Prophets, thirdly
Teachers, after that miracles (dúnamis, works brought on by
power), then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities
· FATHER, I thank You for Your Church. I thank You for
those who are opening themselves to the power of Your Spirit. Please
let the fellowship of which I am a part come know the fullness of ministry
as You have ordained. Let us behold the miracles and Gifts of Your Spirit.
We are needy, but You are mighty in our midst.
The Lord will have a Church
that is filled with His majestic powerPs 29:4; Ps 45:3,4; Ps 93:1
