The Miraculous Mighty Works Power Of God

There are two different Greek words for power in the New Testament. One of them means an authoritative power, the right, or jurisdiction over and I will cover that one in more detail in another article.

The one we will look at in this article is from the Greek word – dynamis. This means a miraculous mighty works power.

Of course, even at a glance, we can see how that word has English derivatives such as dynamic (my spell-checker even tried to change it to that word) and dynamite.

Eventually the two different types of power gel together. God gives us the authoritative power to use his miraculous mighty works power.

So let’s look at all the scriptures that use this word and insert the phrase miraculous mighty works power to see if we can get even more appreciation of what each verse is saying.


The Power Belongs To God

Everything originates from the Father including this miraculous power that as we will see he has given to us through his Son via the Holy Spirit.

Mat 6:13 – And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, (miraculous mighty works power) and the glory, forever. Amen.

1Co 15:24 – Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. (miraculous mighty works power)


Jesus Demonstrated This Power

Jesus was approved of God among you by miracles, wonders, and signs. The word approved means to show, demonstrate, to point out, to prove an argument.

Mar 5:30 – And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue (miraculous mighty works power) had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?

Mar 6:2 – And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works (miraculous mighty works power) are wrought by his hands?

Luk 4:14 – And Jesus returned in the power (miraculous mighty works power) of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.

Luk 19:37 – And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works (miraculous mighty works power) that they had seen;

Act 2:22 – Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles (miraculous mighty works power) and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:

Act 10:38 – How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: (miraculous mighty works power) who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.


Virgin Birth Through Power

This is also a type of the born again experience. Mary was a virgin and Jesus’ birth involved no man. He was born of the Spirit, from above. Through Jesus we are born of the Spirit and also called the children of God.

Luk 1:35 – And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power (miraculous mighty works power) of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

 

Do Not Ignore This Power

The power is evident and has been displayed for all to see. Warnings of ignoring it are highlighted with Woe, Woe, brought down, etc. The power of God is to lead us to repentence.

Mat 11:20 – Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works (miraculous mighty works power) were done, because they repented not:

Mat 11:21 – Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, (miraculous mighty works power) which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.

Mat 11:23 – And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, (miraculous mighty works power) which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.

Luk 10:13 – Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works (miraculous mighty works power) had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.


Don’t Allow Unbelief To Deprive You Of This Power

So much blessing and healing could have been had but unbelief can not see any mighty work.

Mat 13:54 – And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works? (miraculous mighty works power)

Mat 13:58 – And he did not many mighty works (miraculous mighty works power) there because of their unbelief.

Mar 6:5 – And he could there do no mighty work, (miraculous mighty works power) save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.

Mar 9:1 – And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power. (miraculous mighty works power)

 

Don’t Mistake Where This Power Comes From

As Peter said in Acts 3:16 – And Jesus name through faith in Jesus name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by Jesus hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.

Mat 14:2 – And said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works (miraculous mighty works power) do shew forth themselves in him.

Mar 6:14 – And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That John the Baptist was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works (miraculous mighty works power) do shew forth themselves in him.

Act 3:12 – And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power (miraculous mighty works power) or holiness we had made this man to walk?


Both the Scriptures And The Power Are Important

There is a huge trend developing of whole Church groups proclaiming to follow Jesus without the need for the Bible. There can be no such thing because the scriptures speak of him.

Mat 22:29 – Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power (miraculous mighty works power) of God.

Mar 12:24 – And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power (miraculous mighty works power) of God?

 

Jesus Gives Us This Power Through The Holy Spirit

There are signs that follow believers. Just as God approved his Son by miracles, signs, and wonders so too the Church which is the body of his Son.

Luk 24:49 – And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power (miraculous mighty works power) from on high.

2Ti 1:7 – For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, (miraculous mighty works power) and of love, and of a sound mind.


God Gives Us Talents/Abilities That Are Powerful

The word ability in the parable of the talents means power. Jesus did not leave us comfortless/powerless before he went on his journey.

Mat 25:15 – And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; (miraculous mighty works power) and straightway took his journey.

2Th 1:7 – And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty (miraculous mighty works power) angels,


Don’t Forbid Others

Sometimes we can allow our religion or rules to get in the way. The religious leaders were blind to a miraculous healing because Jesus did it on the Sabbath day. It didn’t fit their religion. If miracles are happening praise God.

Mar 9:39 – But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle (miraculous mighty works power) in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.
