Eph 1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, “All things energizing in proportion to the counsel of His will.”
“Who works” is the verb to energize.
The closer we live to the will of God, by the Holy Spirit, the more we tap into God’s energy.
It’s all proportional to how closely we obey God.
Many in the body of Christ who are oppressed or tired, are so, because they don’t live by the will of God.
Wherever the will of God, there is His energy for us to carry out that will.
Have you noticed that active people in God are usually not tired while those who are Sunday Christians and do much less, are tired?
Php 2:13 for it is God who is working in you, both to will and to do for His good pleasure.
“Working in you”, is energizing in you.
The good pleasure and will of God are fountainheads of His energy.
Those who live by the Holy Spirit are buoyed upon the living waters of God’s energy.
1Co 12:11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills.
Once again, “works all these thing” is energizes all these things.
Where the Spirit of God is, is His energy.
Ga 2:8 (for He who worked with Peter in the apostleship to the circumcised, worked also with me in that for the Gentiles),
He who successfully energized in Paul and Peter will do likewise in you.
God has no favorites.
It’s up to us how much of God’s energy we want to flow through our lives.
God will take us far or keep us as limited as we want to.
He will set us as free or keep us in as many chains as we want to.
2Th 2:9 whose coming is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,
“Working”, is the noun, energy.
Satan is busy dispensing his energy as deception to those who reject God and want him.
2Th 2:11 And because of this, God will send them strong delusion, in order for them to believe the lie,
This is a most interesting scripture!
“Strong delusion” is explained as an “energy to planetize.”
Deception in the Greek is called planeo.
Planet comes from planeo.
Planeo is a wondering one.
Our planets were called as such by the Greeks because they wondered around the sun.
You can see why one who wonders from the truth is deceived.
A strong delusion is the energy to planetize or the energy to be deceived.
There are two competing energies in the universe.
One can tap into the energy to follow God through Jesus Christ.
Or one can tap into the energy to planetize, or wonder, of be deceived.
There is no middle ground!
It’s pretty darn scary!
