“His radiance was like the sunlight;
rays flashed from His hand,
where His power is hidden”
God hides His Power. Those who have touched the pulsating power of the Almighty God know of the latent wonder of His exousia. This power is unfathomable, unconquerable and, above all, restrained. It is only the insecure, the proud and the fallen who seek to exercise their authority over others. God Himself has no need to arbitrarily prove His power. The crucified hands of Christ are the true demonstration of God’s Almighty Power. It is from His wounds that the rays of His Light shine forth. In His garments of meekness His Power is made bare. The governing powers of this world, the mocking and murderous mobs of the heathen, and the rage of the devil himself will never understand the secret and wonder of God’s power.
His Power is hidden
within the Hands of His Christ.
The invitation of His Spirit is ever to reach forth our unbelieving hearts and touch the wounds of the bleeding Christ; the touch-stone to which all creation owes its being. It is within the veil of these wounds that God’s Nature is revealed.
“Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands;
and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side:
and be not faithless, but believing…”
While the religious of the world seek to fight for their rights of expression, the Crucified Christ laid aside His Rights and revealed His eternal power by His nail-pierced hands.
“But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory”
1 Corinthians 2:7-8
