Strengthened by Faith in our Omnipotent God信靠全能上帝得力量
Omni(all)potence(powerful).完全有能力God controls all the power in the entire Universe.上帝控制全宇宙的力量。He is the source of all power.(Ps. 62:11)他是所有能力的来源(诗62:11)。(Rev 19:6)And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude saying: “Alleluia:for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth”启19:6 -我聽見好像群眾的聲音,眾水的聲音,大雷的聲音,說:哈利路亞!因為主我們的神、全能者作王了。
If God is Infinite, &He has Power,then His powermust be Infinite(Almighty; 0mnipotent)倘若上帝是无限的且具有大能,那么他的能力一定是无限的
He is“Holy,holy,holy,Lord God Almighty,which was,and is,and is to come”(Rev. 4:8; Gen. 17:1; Rev. 11:17; 15:3; 16:7; 21:22)启4:8 -聖哉!聖哉!聖哉!主神是昔在、今在、以後永在的全能者。“Almighty”occurs 56 times in Scripture & is used only of God“全能”在圣经出现56次,只用在上帝身上。
God’s Names in Hebrew Reveal His Almighty Power希伯来文上帝的名字显明他无所不能的力量
“God”is the Hebrew“El”meaning“to be strong,power,might.”“上帝”来自希伯来词“EL”,意思是“强大,力量,能力”。“Elohim”is a plural form of“God”suggesting the trinity“Elohim”是“上帝”的复数词,表示出三位一体。It is found about 2500 times in the O.T.(Gen. 1:1)它在旧约出现2500次 (创1:1)。“El Elyon”is literally“the strongest strong one”(Gen. 14:18-20)“El Elyon”字意为“最强的的一位”(创14:18-20)。
All God’s Attributes Work together for our Good(Rom. 8:28)上帝所有的属性都为我们的益处来运作(罗8:28)
As Sovereign,God has Total Authority;身为掌管万有,他具有全然的权柄;as Almighty,God has total Power;身为全能,他具有全然的能力;as Self Existent God has complete Freedomto carry out His own Good Will(Eph. 1:9, 11; 3:11; Dan. 4:35; Isa. 14:24, 27; 46:10; Acts 4:28)身为自有永有,他具有全然的自由来行使他自己的旨意。Thus any promise God Makes in His Word,He will fulfill!所以他在话语中做的任何承诺,他会完成!
Because God is Eternal His Power must be Everlasting上帝是永恒的,所以他的能力也必是永恒的
(Isa 26:4)Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH iseverlasting strength:赛26:4 -你們當倚靠耶和華直到永遠,因為耶和華是永久的磐石(力量)。“everlasting strength” is Hebrew “rock of ages”(I Sam. 2:2; Ps.18:2)“永远的力量”在希伯来文是“永久的磐石”(撒上2:2;诗18:2)God’s power will never diminish even the slightest bit throughout all eternity.It can never decrease or increase Forever!上帝的大能在永恒中永远不会减少一丁点。它永不会减少或增加。
Because God is Self Existent He must be the source of all the Power there is由于上帝是自有永有,所以他必定是所有能力的来源
The source must be at least equal to anything that emanates from it来源与从其发出的任何东西必至少是平等的。Thus God is greater than all the power in the entire Universe!所以上帝比全宇宙所有的能力更大!God’s Power created the Universe & keeps it going!(Col. 1:16-17; Heb. 1:3; Ps. 66:9)上帝的大能创造了宇宙,且使其持续运转!(西1:16-17;来1:3;诗66:9)。
All Power Belongs to God:He’s Almighty,Omnipotent!所有的能力皆属于上帝:他是无所不能的!
The Power of God is the only real power there is.There is no power apart from God(Ps. 62:11; Matt. 6:13 KJV; John 19:11)上帝的能力是唯一真正的能力,在他之外没有能力(诗62:11;太6:13;约19:11)。The universe has no inherent power to sustain itself.That is why it is running down(Heb. 1:10-12; Isa. 51:6; Ps. 102:25-27)宇宙本身没有与生俱来的能力来维持自己,这就是为何它在衰竭中(来1:10-12;赛51:6;诗102:25-27)。
God’s Power is Revealed in the Immensity of the Universe上帝的大能彰显在宇宙的宏伟中
(Rom 1:20)“For the invisible things of him from the creation ofthe world are clearly seen,being understood by the thingsthat are made,even his eternal powerandGodhead; so that they are without excuse:罗1:20 -自從造天地以來,神的永能和神性是明明可知的,雖是眼不能見,但藉著所造之物就可以曉得,叫人無可推諉。
We comprehend more of God’s Power today than at any other time in History(By Empirical Science)我们今日比历史上其他任何时间更明了上帝的大能

(Isa 40:26)“Lift up your eyes on high, andbehold who hath created these things,that bringeth out their host by number:he calleth them all by namesby the greatness of his might,for that he is strong in power;not one faileth.”赛40:26 -你們向上舉目,看誰創造這萬象,按數目領出,他一一稱其名;因他的權能,又因他的大能大力,連一個都不缺。
Modern Science replaced the Omnipotent God by making idols of the Laws of Nature现代科学用自然律的偶像取代全能的上帝
Mankind used to have an acute sense of the presence of God as they realized He ruled & sustained our amazing World.人类曾经对上帝的同在有敏锐的感觉,他们明白他统管并支撑我们奇妙的世界。Today Science tries to convince us the Laws of Nature explain the existence of everything(Naturalism;Humanism;Evolutionism).今日,科学试图使用自然律解释万物的存在,来说服我们 (自然主义;人本主义;进化论)。
The Laws of Nature can’t Create!They just reveal How the Creator Designed His Creation自然律无法创造!它们只显示造物主如何设计出他的创造
The consistency of God’s activities in His Creation enables the scientist to predict the course of natural phenomena.上帝在他所造之物中活动的一致性,使科学家能够预测自然现象的轨道。Illus:the reason we can put a man on the moon is because the Heavenly bodies move with such amazing precision!例:我们能够把人放上月球,乃因天体按照惊人的准确性在运行!
Some People can’t Look beyond Creation to see the Creator有些人无法越过造物去看见造物主
Yuri Gagarin 4/12/1961.Khrushchev said Gagarin didn’t see any god in space!克鲁雪夫说Gagarin在外太空没看见任何神!
God designed everything in a way that we can discover the incredible design & make great advancements for mankind上帝设计万物的方式使我们可以发现难以置信的设计,且为人类制造出伟大的进步
It’s one thing for science to discover how Creation works& make scientific progress.科学发现造物如何运作,以发展出科学的进展是一回事;It is quite another thing to Believe God’s Word & discoverGod’s Purpose for creating everything to begin with!相信上帝的话语,且发现他起初创造万物的目的是另一回事!
