and Power for our lives. So let's take a look at the keys God has given us to have Victory and Power in our lives.
Victory, when defining victory it stands for many things. The one I like the best is (to defeat). So that reminds me of the story of Jesus while he was out in the wilderness for forty days, and forty nights, on how he fasted the whole time. Now just imagine if we were assigned this mission, by the 2nd day we would declare that we are weak, hungry, or maybe some of us would throw in the towel. Upon the completion of these 40 days and nights Jesus was tempted by the devil, and what we call weakest in the natural should be our strongest in our spirit, just as Jesus was, he wasn't weak, but he was at his strongest point because he had just spent forty days talking with the father in the Holy Spirit, and when he finished he was ready for anything!
Key 1
Walking in the Holy Spirit:
So how did Jesus defeat the devil? Jesus was able to defeat the devil even with all that he brought, that he thought he could harm Jesus with. Because Jesus didn't react to what the devil was bringing him, through his emotions, but he used the Holy Spirit. Therefore, we have to learn how to use the Holy Spirit. So instead of crying or feeling down the next time the devil come at you, shout the door and walk in the Holy Spirit that Jesus has made available.
Key2
God's Word
Jesus spoke God's words over each situation the devil brought him. That's what we have to do, when we are dealing with something. We have to speak the word of God of that, what the devil is trying to use in order to tear us down. So put on your armor of God, which is the word of God. Because we can only win each battle by taking out our sword, using our scripture's, for this will help us to defeat the enemy.
Key 3
Praise
Psalm 150:6 say's let everything that has breathe praise the Lord. For when we…...

He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God.4 On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: "Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.5 For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit." 6 Then they gathered around him and asked him, "Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?" 7 He said to them: "It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes......

The God of the Hebrews Versus the Egyptian Gods

.... . 0/ The GOD of the Hebrews versus the Egyptian gods Rev. Bryant S. Williamson Prof. Linda Reaves Writing and Research 215, Strayer University November 8, 2011 Intoduction There is a belief in a supreme being by all religions on earth. I believe that the same GOD of the Hebrews is this GOD because of his display of power over the Egyptian gods. This report looks at one account of many in the bible where GOD uses an ordinary man to free his people from bondage in Egypt using signs and wonders. The God of the Hebrews Versus the Egyptian gods One of the most awesome displays of power and love in the Bible is the deliverance of Gods’ people from Egypt. They were lead out of Egypt by Moses, a Hebrew found floating in an ark by Pharaohs daughter as a child. Moses, now grown, went out unto his people and saw an Egyptian beating one of his brethren and killed the Egyptian. After hearing of what Moses had done the Pharaoh sought to kill him but Moses had fled to the city of Midian and as time went on the King of Egypt died and the children of Israel (Hebrews) cried out to God because of their bondage. Thus the Lord remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and Jacob and sent Moses as the deliverer of his people. Moses is then encountered in the presence of God being called out of the mist of a burning bush and is given instructions to return to Egypt with Aaron where he demands that Pharaoh set his people free. And Pharaoh replies “Who is the Lord......

Reflection Paper on Death and the Power of God

...Introduction Throughout the Introduction to Theology class we have covered a wide variety of topics. Today, we live in such a fast paced society that things often get overlooked. I will be discussing a few topics which I feel are important topics today. One of my topics is something that most of the people I know fear, death. Another important topic that will be discussed is the power of God. Death One of the greatest fears that most people have in their lives is death. I wonder why this is so? Do people mostly fear the way that they will die? Do they feel as if they haven’t accomplished everything they have wanted to in their life? I feel these things attribute to the fear that people have with death. There are several examples of death throughout the Bible. Thousands died from diseases, crimes, and committing sins which they were instructed not to do. One example of this is one of the Ten Commandments, thou shall not kill. So why is there so much murder that takes place throughout the Bible and in our world today? Do people not understand the magnitude of this commandment? I cannot attest to witnessing a murder myself but have seen several news reports on them. In fact the news is normally scattered with terrible news of death and murderers. Life is such a precious gift given to us by our Lord Jesus Christ they think it is something to which they show little value. One day, hopefully, more individuals will value life and the murdering that happens......

Power

...Social psychology examines the influence of groups on the developing self as well as the influence that an individual has on group. Although those with those with good intentions should use power with virtue, many of the world’s most powerful people use power in ways that purposefully harm other people. Social power refers to the force available to the influence in motivating change A power- abusing “religious” leader is Reverend Jim Jones, born 1931 in Crete, Indiana a rural community (Wikipedia). Jones was a voracious reader as a child studying Joseph Statin, Karl Marx, Mahatma Gandhi and Adlof Hitler (Reiterman, Tim and John Jacobs).He studied each carefully, noting their strengths and weaknesses. In psychological term this is referring to as behaviorism According to his childhood acquaintances, they recalled Jones as being a “really weird kid” who was “obsessed with religion….obsessed with death…” (Catherine Wessinger). In human, awareness of the fact that one is acting deceptively often leads to telltale signs of deception. Therefore, if self-deception enables someone to believe their distortions, they will not present such signs of deception and will therefore appear to be telling the truth. As known in psychology this referred to as Delusional Disorder, it was note that he might have this disorder. “Individuals with delusional disorder are not always dangerous, but they can be when they act on their delusions” (B.Lahey). “As a young man......

God and Evil

...of evil and a critical evaluation of how it is said to undermine the traditional characteristics of God. This paper will attempt to review the philosophical quandary of the existence of evil and if evil exists can God exist and if so can this God still be declared perfect? The epistemological issue that arises is One’s knowledge of God and the validity of God’s existence. What is good and what is evil? The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines evil as: 1. a : morally reprehensible : sinful, wicked <an evil impulse> b : arising from actual or imputed bad character or conduct <a person of evil reputation> 2 a: archaic : inferior b : causing discomfort or repulsion : offensive <an evil odor> c : disagreeable <woke late and in an evil temper> 3 a : causing harm : pernicious <the evil institution of slavery> b : marked by misfortune : unlucky For the purpose of this paper, we will use the first definition. Evil is a trait that we as human beings possess. Whether we choose to use it is up to the individual. But what is evil? Do we as humans consciously choose to be good or evil? What plays a role in bringing out that evil? We next need to look at what is God and does he exist? God as defined by Merriam-Webster is: 1. capitalized : the supreme or ultimate reality: as a : the Being perfect in power, wisdom, and goodness who is worshipped as creator and ruler of the universe b Christian......

Power

...Different Types of Power Power is said to be essential in order to survive and live as individuals. I agree with this statement because of the recent texts we have read including, “Things Fall Apart” by Achebe, “Night” by Wiesel, “The Prince” by Machiavelli, and “Julius Caesar” by Shakespeare. If I was asked to define power in my own words, I would define it as both an inner and outer strength and drive to continue and accomplish a goal despite any obstacles that may get in the way. Without power, I feel as though there would be hardly any hope for the future. If an individual was lacking power and had to face some sort of a difficult obstacle, whether it is an inner struggle or outer battle, there would be little chance of getting through the difficult situation. However, if an individual had great power they would be able to persevere through whatever challenge was thrown at them with ease. In “Night,” Wiesel used his inner power to persevere and survive through the Holocaust as well as his personal battle with his faith. In contrast, Nazi Germany used their power to discriminate against people not belonging to the Aryan race. Wiesel describes his strength during this horrific time well by writing, “We were the masters of nature, the masters of the world. We had transcended everything- death, fatigue, our natural needs. We were stronger than cold and hunger, stronger than the guns and desire to die, doomed and rootless, nothing but numbers, we were the only men on......

Question of God

...main reason people believe in God is the �Argument of Design�. When we look at the world around us we are so awestruck and think how this all came into existence and are forced to believe that there must be some creator or force behind the creation of this complex universe. We believe that the force is God. Dawkins himself did not believe in the Argument of design. He believed that natural selection is the cause of the complexity of all organisms. But Dawkin is not able to prove that evolution or natural selection occurred without intelligence. He does not accept that the complex universe is the creation of God based on the fact that God is not complex. Dawkins is also not able to prove the probability of evolution which he thinks is the cause of creation of all complex beings. "that the watch must have had a maker: that there must have existed, at some time, and at some place or other, an artificer or artificers, who formed it for the purpose which we find it actually to answer; who comprehended its construction, and designed its use." I believe that there is some power behind the creation of this complex universe. There is some source behind the creation of all complex organisms. One can say that this source or power I believe in could be God. It is this belief that gives me hope and faith that things will change and gives me strength to move forward every day. It also gives me peace of mind. I believe in existence of GOD. I think the question of God is how we perceive......

The Gods

...The Role of the Gods in the Iliad In the era of Homer, divine intervention was thought to be typical, and one of his foremost works, The Iliad, reflects this. Nearly all of the Greek gods are involved in the outcome of the Trojan War, which happens to be the background story of this epic poem. The gods are used by Homer to add twists on an otherwise standard plot of war. Evidently, the gods will be a powerful source of divine intervention and their actions certainly have significant outcomes on the Trojan War, and more importantly, the story of The Iliad. Zeus, very untypical of a Greek god in his lack of involvement in the Trojan War for selfish reasons, was portrayed as the father figure, being impartial and fair to both sides of the war. He remains this way to serve as a check for the other god's involvement in the war. Without the presence of fate controlling the inner circle of Olympus, it is likely that the activity of the Trojan War would have become chaotic, possibly even becoming a playground of war for the gods. The power of fate, above all of the other gods combined, is a power that not even divine intervention can prevent. This theme of fate and how it controls the god’s actions is quite befitting to the storyline of The Iliad. The Iliad, in essence, recounts the story of part of the tenth year of the Trojan War. It recounts of the anger of Achilles, the greatest warrior present at Troy, and of the background battle that is ensuing. The reoccurring theme in the......

Early believers such as Moses, Elijah, Paul, and Peter all had to demonstrate that their God is the one true God at times. These believers even encountered persecution and ridicule for holding on to these beliefs at times. Nevertheless the challenges to these early believers tended to be demonstrating that their God was greater than their accuser’s god or gods. At times, it was through the words of men that the God of the Bible was shown to be greater, and other times it was through the action of God in......

...Reinventing the wheel: new tech turns regular bikes into hybrids – and a traffic tool The Copenhagen Wheel turns bicycles into electric hybrids, able to multiply pedal power, track your heart rate and monitor potholes. But at $800, it costs more than a bike  Reinventing the wheel: smart bikes, if widely adopted, could change the way we think about urban transportation. Photograph: John Giles/PA Sponsored by: BT Elisabeth Braw Friday 7 November 2014 14.00 GMT * Share on Facebook * Share on Twitter * Share via Email * Share on LinkedIn * Share on Google+ Shares 773 Comments 146 In the past decade or so, bicycles have taken western cities by storm. London has introduced both bike-sharing and bike lanes, and Paris even has a bike-sharing programme for children. In Copenhagen, ever the bicycle champion, 41% of rides to work and education now take place on bicycle seats. But what if you’re not super fit, don’t want to arrive at work sweaty, or if you simply live far from your job? A new hybrid “e-bike” promises to fix that dilemma. To be precise, the Copenhagen Wheel is not truly an e-bike at all. It’s a wheel that can be attached to a regular bike. That wheel, equipped with a motor, batteries, sensors and wireless connectivity, transforms the bike into a smart bike that multiplies pedal power and even measures the rider’s heart rate and monitors potholes. “The experience is very natural,” claims Assaf Biderman, associate director of MIT’s......

Who Is God

...Ashly Elias EGL375 29 September 2014 How God Evolved with Humans Throughout the Five Books of Moses, God has chosen certain individuals for duties and missions in his name. The interpersonal relationships God has with these select few affects one’s understanding of who he is. Also, his persona wavers from person to person, revealing parts of himself through his actions and emotions. At first God is as an all-powerful creator, an artist designing the world. However, he has a different, fatherly side to him when he creates Adam and Eve. He is happy, content and even hurt and betrayed. God also goes through period of wrath and anger as he copes with the disobedience of man. He slowly changes, and begins to transform with other characters as he starts to have empathy and understand them. Most importantly, he begins to evolve with humans as the timeline progresses. Before learning about God through his relationships with humans, it is necessary understand who he was before humans existed. The bible begins by saying, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” The immensity of these ten words pulls one into the abrupt beginning of life, and who it is that created it. The very first characteristic stated about him in Genesis is that he is a creator. He has formed the heavens and the earth for mankind to flourish upon. Much can be learned about him through his process of creation. First, God is a god of order. He created life in a matter of six days with......

God and the Absurd

...God and the Absurd: Faith and Other Myths “Faith means the will to avoid knowing what is true.” (Nietszche) The invention of God came from the human search for purpose, truth, and certainty. As an intellectually evolved species, humankind has looked for answers and meaning since the beginning of time. The existence of a God gives humans a sense of security and purpose in a world full of injustice, suffering and emptiness. God is an easy way to give meaning when there is none and to console human anxieties. Humans will always be hungry for a universal truth, an answer. Humans create stories about God, morality, an afterlife, and so on to attempt to give a higher truth or purpose for living. Truth is an illusion. There are no answers. The search for truth by humankind will always fight against the answer that there is none. The effort to give inherent meaning to life met with the conflict of the failure to do so and that the search to define meaning in life will always fail is the basic philosophy of a school of thought known as absurdism. Humanity lives in conflict with the universe and the universe will never validate the importance or meaningfulness of human life in a way that is desperately sought for by human beings. The metaphysical space between the search for truth and the resulting lack thereof is known as the absurd. In absurdist philosophy, the absurd is made visible from the unavoidable conflict between humankind’s search for meaning and the......

God vs No God

...The definition of “God” is the supernatural that is conceived as the perfect, omnipotent and omniscient originator and ruler of the universe. God is the object of worship in monotheistic religions. After having studied this subject frequently back in the past and this chapter, there are many arguments for the existence of God such as the cosmological, the teleological, the ontological, and the moral arguments, etc. Although they are very powerful arguments, each one of them also has their own weakness. There are not only arguments towards the existence of God; however, there are also arguments against God as well. These are called the Empirical, Deductive, Inductive, and Subjective arguments. But, again, these arguments each also have their own strengths and weaknesses just like the arguments for the existence of God. One popular form of the Cosmological argument states that things exist and it is possible for those things to not exist; there is an uncaused caused for everything that has been brought into existence. So, according to this argument, the cause and what created the universe must have been God’s doing. However, this argument is thought by some to be completely illogical, as God would have to be caused as well. So, if God had a cause, what created God? Then there must be a higher power even above God. But yet, God is supposed to be all-powerful. Maybe it created itself? How is that possible? Perhaps the universe was always there, perhaps God was always there. I......

The Power of Gods

...9, 2016 The Odyssey: The Power of Gods The epic of Homer The Odyssey is about Odysseus and his 10 year struggle to return home Ithaca where his wife Penelope and his son Telemachus are struggling with the suitors who are waiting to take Penelope’s hand and Ithaca’s throne while they await for Odysseus return. However, Odysseus struggled to return Ithaca for the reason that Poseidon one of the gods that appear during the epic prevent him to return to his homeland. The theme that I considered interesting about the epic The Odyssey is the Power of Gods. Gods were considered ‘supreme’to humans. This was because humans plead to the Gods whenever they need to achieve something, and the gods decided to please or not to please humans according to human’s effort in obtain their help. Through the epic The Odyssey from Homer, in numerous occasions gods interact with humans for example, in Book II ,Athena one of the goddesses interact with Telemachus as Mentor and she advises him to embark in a journey to go to look for his father Odysseus “the journey you have your heart set on won’t be delayed. I myself, your father’s old comrade, will equip a fast ship and sail along with you” (II.309-311). It seems that the power of gods in this epic is a very important part of human’s life. In addition, another aspect of the relationship between the gods and humans is that since humans believe gods have all the power over them, humans often fear the gods and therefore they honor them......

Jesus Christ is our last, true and faithful “Messianic Jew” that has done away with the bi-polar division of Jew’s and Gentile’s humanity that was form in the Old Convent. Lord God new Covent is now enforced in the New Testament by the birth, life, death, resurrection, and the ascension of Lord Jesus. Lord Jesus is the cornerstone, of the church that has been built from our Lord God Spirit. Lord Jesus, appear here on Earth, from the Kingdom of Heaven for forty days teaching and giving instructions to the disciples about the restoration of the new Church of Israel. Jesus than ascended back into heaven from the site of Mount Olivet, (Acts 1.9-12),while the disciples stay put in Jerusalem for the Promise of the Father (Acts 1.6-7) to be accomplish. Now after 50 days on the day of Pentecost, Jesus disciples held a meeting in the upper room (prayer room) for the replacement of Judas. The disciples cast and threw lots and Matthias was picked for the twelve disciples. A sound came from heaven as strong wind’s appears and filled the whole house where they were sitting.
