WHICH power AFFECTS in you?








Have you ever thought or been in doubt as to which power is affecting in you? Have you thought from which source your ‘gifts’ are coming if, for example, healing and other special issues take place through you? It is good to take into consideration the fact that even if someone sincerely thought that he is transmitting the power of ‘Christ and the Holy Spirit’, this does not guarantee that the gifts are always from God: Satan namely may easily imitate healing, prophesying, speaking in tongues, the message of knowledge, and other spiritual gifts mentioned by the Bible. He can give these imitation gifts to people, so that they would go astray and further from God.

    In addition, the descriptions of the Bible indicate the same. One of the examples is Simon the Sorcerer, who is mentioned in Chapter 8 of the Acts of the Apostles. This man caused wonders with the help of magic and in front of other people so that these people supposed that Simon acted with the help of God. However, the power in him was not the power of the Holy Spirit, but he was astray all the time. (Another well-known story is that of the magicians of the pharaoh; these magicians who practiced sorcery were able to make similar miracles as Moses.) Among others, the next verses refer to him:


- (Acts 8:9-13) But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one:

10  To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God.

11  And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.

12  But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.

13  Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.


In addition, we do not need to do anything else than look at the own words of Jesus about this issue: He stated that in the last judgment, many people would appear who had prophesied and done wonderful works in His name; people whom Jesus would not know, in other words, who were not His own. These verses prove very well the point that even if someone sincerely thinks that he is acting in the power of God, he can be completely astray:


- (Matt 7:22,23) Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works?

23  And then will I profess to them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.
