God’s Promise of Power
By Benny Hinn
We know that Jesus performed many miracles, yet He said of those who believe in Him: “Greater than these shall ye do” (John 14:12). I wish I could explain signs, wonders, and healings, but I can’t. All I know is that they did not cease with the ministry of Christ and the apostles. How can I be sure? At the very least from my own personal experience. I was born with a severe stuttering problem that completely disappeared the moment I stood up to preach my first sermon.
God confirms His Word and bears witness “with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit” (Hebrews 2:4). Not just back then, but right now.
Power is promised. In his book, Greater Works, Smith Wigglesworth wrote: The Holy Spirit has come with one definite purpose, and that is to reveal to us the Father and the Son in all their different branches of helpfulness to humanity. The Spirit has come to display almighty power so that the weak may be made strong, and to bring to sickness such a manifestation of the blood of Christ, of the Atonement on Calvary, that the evil power of disease is conquered and forced to leave.
Power is promised to the believer.
“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you.” (Acts 1:8)
God has equipped the believer for victory.
“…The people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.” (Daniel 11:32)
