Authority & Power

by Prophet Dr. David Owuor

"18 Mount Sinai was covered with smoke, because the LORD descended on it in fire. The smoke billowed up from it like smoke from a furnace, and the whole mountain trembled violently. 19 As the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder, Moses spoke and the voice of God answered him."
(Exodus 19:18-19)
THE SECOND REASON as to why the GODHEAD HIMSELF may often choose to come out of HIS Throne in heaven and visit mankind on the earth, is for purposes of bringing unto HIS people the REVELATION OF GOD's Authority and the Demonstration of HIS infinite power.

Just like Israel suffered a severe bout of spiritual forgetfulness on their journey to the promised land, so has it recurred to the present-day church of Christ on her journey to the Kingdom of GOD.
For Israel, the pleasures and joy of travelling with friends and acquaintances is what very soon made them forget what this journey was actually all about. The Israelites quickly forgot that this entire journey from Egypt to the Promised Land was as a matter of fact all about WORSHIPPING JEHOVAH and instead began to get involved in revelry and viceful activities.

"13 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Get up early in the morning, confront Pharaoh and say to him, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, says: Let My people go, so that they may worship Me."
(Exodus 9:13)

As they went about their journey in the wilderness, the Israelites began partying and sharing bad stories about how Egyptian life had edified them and helped them raise forth families. This was the complete contrary to what the LORD expected of them, especially considering that they had just been through a brute form of repression. Therefore, by visiting HIS people on that dreadful Mt. Sinai encounter, the GODHEAD HIMSELF brought forth a vivid reminder unto Israel on WHO exactly this journey to the Promised Land was all about.

The present-day church of Christ too has today gotten herself friends and acquaintances aboard this sacred journey to heaven, and hence seriously compromisedthe holiness of her walk by entangling herself withrevelry and viceful activities of this sinful world. By doing this, like Israel, the present-day church too has quicklyforgotten that this journey to the Kingdom of GOD actually began on the Cross as a holy voyage whose focus was the ONE and ONLY GOD OF ISRAEL JEHOVAH. As a matter of fact, as was the case in Israel from Goshen, this one too was all intended to be about the WORSHIPPING OF JEHOVAH in absolute holiness.

Just as Israel lost the innocence of her holiness in the process of revelry along the journey, so has the present-day body of Christ lost holiness in the process of partying with sinful world, as a means of making her journey 'comfortable'. As a result, we can clearly see that the GODHEAD must have intended that by revealing HIMSELF to the CHURCH at that Mega Kisumu Revival Meeting, HE purposed to restore her unto HIMSELF, by instilling an indelible sense of awe her way that from that day on she may honour HIS NAME and observe an uncompromisable adherence to HIS holy fundamentals of righteousness.

"And Jehovah brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand and with an outstretched arm, with great terror and with signs and wonders." (Deuteronomy 26:8)
