70AD-ONGOING Return of Christ Brings the Kingdom of God WITH MIRACULOUS POWER, not without

Matthew 24:30 and Matthew 24:34 ~ Jesus answered the Disciples' questions about His Coming; just days before the Cross, around 30AD.
"The sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky WITH POWER and great glory. ... 34 Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place." NASB

Mark 9:1
"Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who shall not taste death until they see the kingdom of God after it has come WITH POWER." NASB

It should be noted that Christ's Kingdom comes with POWER ('dunamis") not "without" POWER ("'dunamis"). There is no Scriptural evidence that that POWER ("dunamis") ever leaves Christ or His Kingdom. Much can be gained by contemplating these verses. The Scriptures listed below demonstrate the connection between the spiritual gift of the working of MIRACLES ("dunamis") and then showed an abundance of verses where "DUNAMIS" means the "WORKING OF MIRACLES," "MIGHTY WORKS," "POWER," "VIRTUE," etc. (Words translated into English from some form of "DUNAMIS" are rendered in CAPITAL LETTERS). It does not require an individual commentary on each verse for Christ's believers to get the message. (But a scoffer will never get it, no matter how clearly explained). If Russell's "The Parousia," is considered a noble work for exhaustively addressing the of verses pertaining to The Day of the Lord's Return, then we should find room for this brief treatment of the verses that pertain to the Lord's MIRACULOUS POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411).
NT:1411 dunamis (doo'-nam-is); from NT:1410; force (literally or figuratively); specially, miraculous power (usually by implication, a miracle itself):
Appearing in KJV as - ability, abundance, meaning, might (-ily, -y, -y deed), (worker of) miracle (-s), power, strength, violence, mighty (wonderful) work.

Matthew 6:13
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" Strong's #1411), and the glory, for ever. Amen.
The Lord's Prayer teaches us to recognise that the Kingdom, and the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and the glory are forever associated with our Father in Heaven.
Matthew 24:30
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and great glory.
Mark 9:1
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, ("DUNAMIS" #1411),
Jesus says that the Kingdom of God comes WITH POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), not WITHOUT. There is no Bible evidence that this POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), ever leaves the Kingdom of God.
Mark 13:26
26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and glory.
Luke 21:27
27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and great glory.
Jesus' coming was WITH POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), not WITHOUT. Jesus' coming brought POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), along with Him, not driving it out.
Revelation 11:17
17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and hast reigned.
"DUNAMIS" #1411 is the means by which God reigns.
Revelation 15:8
8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411); and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.
Revelation 19:1
1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), unto the Lord our God:
Notice how "DUNAMIS" #1411 comes along with Salvation and the Kingdom of our God and the power of His Christ. Salvation, the Kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ do not come without "DUNAMIS" #1411.
Hebrews 6:4-6
4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit,
5 and have tasted the good word of God and the POWERS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of the age to come,
6 if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.
All that is listed here are from God and are SUPERNATURAL in nature. The POWERS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), that they tasted then rightly pertain to the age in which live now; right along with being enlightened, tasting of the Heavenly Gift, becoming partakers of the Holy Spirit and of the good Word of God. AMEN.
Revelation 12:10
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and STRENGTH, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
Matthew 13:54
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, ("DUNAMIS" #1411) ?
Matthew 13:54 "MIGHTY WORKS" ("DUNAMIS" #1411) = "DUNAMIS" #1411 = The spiritual gift called "The Working of MIRACLES ('DUNAMIS' #1411)" in 1 Cor 12:10.
Mark 5:27-30
27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.
28 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that VIRTUE, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?
This VIRTUE, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), was stored in a human being and dispensed to others from therein. Jesus could sense this VIRTUE, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), flowing from within Him. This VIRTUE, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), healed that woman. This VIRTUE, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), is the spiritual Gifts of Healing mentioned in 1 Cor 12:9.
Luke 4:14
14 And Jesus returned in the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.
Again, the word used for Jesus' supernatural POWER is "DUNAMIS" #1411, the same word used in 1 Cor 12:10 for the spiritual gift called THE WORKING OF MIRACLES, ("DUNAMIS" #1411).
Luke 4:36
36 And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.
This same "DUNAMIS" #1411 is the POWER that drives out unclean spirits.
Luke 5:17
17 And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of the Lord was present to heal them.
"DUNAMIS" means supernatural healing.
Luke 6:19
19 And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went VIRTUE, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), out of him, and healed them all.
This VIRTUE, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), brings physical healing to physical human bodies. This effectively links "DUNAMIS" #1411 with Spiritual Gifts of Healing described in 1 Cor 12:9.
Luke 8:46
46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that VIRTUE, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), is gone out of me.
This VIRTUE, "DUNAMIS" #1411 is something a person can perceive.
Luke 19:37
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, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), that they had seen;
They praised Jesus for doing miracles & supernatural healings, not for performing feats of physical strength. "DUNAMIS" #1411 involves the supernatural.
Acts 10:38
38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
"DUNAMIS" is the very POWER that raised Jesus from the dead. Jesus let it flow through Him to do good and heal. Paul prays for the Ephesians that they might know this POWER "DUNAMIS" (Ephesians 1:19). This is my prayer for you all, as well.
Acts 2:22
22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by MIRACLES, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
Again "DUNAMIS" #1411 is equated with the spiritual gift of The Working of Miracles (1Cor 12:10).
1 Corinthians 12:7-11
7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
1 Corinthians 12:10
10 To another THE WORKING OF MIRACLES, ("DUNAMIS" #1411); to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
The spiritual gift called THE WORKING OF MIRACLES is directly equated with "DUNAMIS" #1411.
1 Corinthians 12:28
28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that MIRACLES, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
MIRACLES, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), is plainly distinguished from Apostles, Prophets, and Teachers, among others. Though Apostles, Prophets and Teachers cease upon attaining perfection/maturity, there is no indication that helps nor governments, nor MIRACLES, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), cease.
1 Corinthians 12:29
29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of MIRACLES, ("DUNAMIS" #1411) ?
The anticipated response at that time was, "No, all of us are not workers of MIRACLES, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), but some are." Likewise, just because today we are not all workers of MIRACLES, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), does not mean that none of us are workers of MIRACLES, ("DUNAMIS" #1411). And "Workers of MIRACLES, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), distinguished here from "Apostles," are not listed among those offices in Ephesians 4:11-16 that were later to cease.
Matthew 13:58
58 And he did not many MIGHTY WORKS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), there because of their unbelief.
Jesus did not do many MIGHTY WORKS, ("DUNAMIS #1411), where people displayed a lack of faith. Why? Because He will not cast many pearls before pigs, He will not cast many holy things before scornful people who demonstrate as much appreciation for the SUPERNATURAL as a pig does for a pearl. Bible-inspired appreciation (faith) demonstrates a readiness to receive that which is holy, God's MIRACLE-WORKING POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411).
Mark 6:5
5 And he could there do no MIGHTY WORK, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.
Here it says Jesus COULD NOT do there any MIGHTY WORK, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), because of their scornful treatment of Him. Laying hands on a few sick folk for healing is regarded here as a far lesser work. (There are a few people, non-churched, who have personally attested to receiving instant recovery from fever and headaches the few times I ever reached out my hands to heal in Jesus' Name).
Matthew 22:29
29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of God.
Jesus frowns upon those refusing to know the Scriptures & the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of God.
Mark 12:24
24 And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of God?
The same could still be said of many today. As Christ was merciful then, He is merciful to our unbelief today, as well.
Matthew 14:1-2
1 At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus,
2 And said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore MIGHTY WORKS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), do shew forth themselves in him.
Mark 6:14
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, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), do shew forth themselves in him.
Its ironically facinating to me that Herod the tetrarch, who beheaded John the Baptist, was more ready to believe in resurrection and contemporary reports of MIGHTY WORKS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), than some present day Christians.
2 Timothy 3:5
Having a form of godliness, but denying the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), thereof: from such turn away.
This verse concludes passage listing behaviors of people that Christians should avoid. Avoid them are those who put on an outward show of godliness but deny the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of godliness. Scornful scoffers of God's MIRACULOUS POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and of discussion thereof, are such people.
1 Peter 1:5
5 Who are kept by the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
2 Peter 1:3
3 According as his divine POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
It is this divine POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), that we depend upon for all things we need for life and godly living. It comes through knowing the God that called us to both glory and virtue. This POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), works FOR producing the Fruit of the Spirit -love, joy, peace, etc. Why would anyone think that MIRACLES, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), somehow interfere with producing godliness, the fruit of the Spirit? Ridiculously ignorant!
Romans 1:20
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
There is no excuse for denying the eternal, ever-enduring, everlasting, never-ceasing POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of God.
Hebrews 1:1-3
1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds [NIV, "made the Universe"];
3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his POWER, ("DUNAMIS"), when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
God's "DUNAMIS" #1411 is the very POWER by which all things are ultimately held together. Today's top theoretical nuclear physicists, as Manhattan Poject group leader and nobel laureate Richard P. Feynman related to me in a summer school classroom at CalTech back in 1982, are at a loss as to why everything doesn't just fly apart from its most sub-atomic particles into a blinding flash of light-energy. (Look him up in an encyclopedia). This is one reason why they are so keen to find out what happened during those first, few nano-seconds following the Big Bang, to come up with the Unified Theory that would explain why the material Universe, all matter itself demonstrates the power to continue existing as matter rather than as light-energy. God's Spirit communicated via Hebrews 1:3 that it is God's MIRACLE-WORKING POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), that holds all things together.
Luke 1:17
17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
Elijah & John the Baptist have this in common: they both took on their faithless nation, calling them from the most heinous rebellion, singlehandedly. This required unusual faith. They both were granted the Spiritual Gift of Faith (1 Cor 12:9) which lasts for the moment when needed, but the man is left afterward with his own regular faith. This Gift of Faith enabled Elijah to single-handedly confront the 450 prophets of Baal in 1 Kings 18:22-45. But immediately following, his own faith was not enough to stand up to a lone woman named Jezebel: Elijah ran from her for his life (1 Kings 19:1-3). Likewise, John the Baptist was granted the Gift of Faith to single-handedly stand against the broods of vipers of Pharisees & Sadducees and single-handedly identifying boldly to the world that Jesus is the Son of God, the Christ, the Lamb of God (Matt 3:1-16 John 2:15-32). But later, when this Gift of Faith had served its purpose, John the Baptist had to send messengers to find out if Jesus was, in fact, the One who was to come (Luke 7:20). John the Baptist did no miracles (John 10:41), but Elijah did (1 Kings 17:1, 13-15, 17-22, 1 Kings 18:1,41-45 1 Kings 19:7 2 Kings 1:10, 12, 16 2 Kings 2:7, 11). The spirit and POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of Elijah which John the Baptist shared was the spiritual Gift of Faith (1 Cor 12:9) which gave them temporary, supernatural Faith to withstand far more than they could have on their own faith.
1 Corinthians 12:7-9
7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
9 To another faith by the same Spirit; ...
"To another," indicates here, as in the rest of the passage, that it is a special Gift that is not given to everyone all the time. It is the spiritual Gift of [Special] Faith temporarily, miraculously added to one's personal faith.
1 Corinthians 15:56
56 The sting of death is sin; and the STRENGTH, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of sin is the law.
Luke 10:19
19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
2 Thessalonians 2:9
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and signs and lying wonders,
Christ's enemy had POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411) which was put down by Christ.
Revelation 13:2
2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and his seat, and great authority.
Revelation 17:13
13 These have one mind, and shall give their POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and strength unto the beast.
Evil POWER, can be transferred from one to another.
Revelation 18:3
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the ABUNDANCE, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of her delicacies.
1 John 3:8
For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
Luke 21:26
26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the POWERS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of heaven shall be shaken.
Common men were to unmistakably perceive this shaking of the POWERS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of heaven at Christ's Return.
1 Corinthians 15:24
24 Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411). NIV
1 Peter 3:22
22 [Jesus] Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and POWERS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), being made subject unto him.
God does not destroy His own dominion, authority, and POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), because that would make God divided against Himself. But he subjects all POWERS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), to His Son Jesus Christ. This subjugation of Christ's enemies to Christ Himself is called their "destruction."
Matthew 24:29
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the POWERS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of the heavens shall be shaken:
Mark 13:25
25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the POWERS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), that are in heaven shall be shaken.
Romans 8:38-39
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor POWERS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
There are no evil POWERS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), that can separate us from the love of God.
Luke 24:49
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, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), from on high.
Jesus said this to an unknown number of disciples gathered around the Eleven Apostles, (Luke 24:33), among them Cleopas and another anonymous disciple who had just returned from seeing Jesus on the road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-33-53). They were to be endued with POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), from on high. This is where "DUNAMIS" #1411 comes from.
Acts 1:8
8 But ye shall receive POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Acts 4:33
33 And with great POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.
Romans 1:4
4 And declared to be the Son of God with POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:
Romans 9:17
17 For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.
The POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), comes via the Holy Ghost for the purpose of witnessing for Christ, His Name and His supernatural Resurrection from the dead.
Hebrews 2:4
4 God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers MIRACLES, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), , and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will.
Acts 3:12
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, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), or holiness we had made this man to walk?
Peter affirms in Acts 3:16 that the "DUNAMIS" POWER does not belong to him, or to the other Apostles, but to God, Who distributes it as He wills, in response to the hearing of faith in Christ for it (Galatians 3:5).
Acts 4:7
7 And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, By what POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), or by what name, have ye done this?
Acts 6:8
8 And Stephen, full of faith and POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), did great wonders and miracles among the people.
Once yet again, The Word of God equates "DUNAMIS" #1411 with the spiritual gift of The Working of Miracles (1 Cor 12:10).
Luke 9:1
1 Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.
Christ Himself distributes this POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411) via the Holy Spirit. Wherever Christ is available, His POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), is available.
Ephesians 3:7
Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his POWER
Paul, also, was made a minister by Christ's POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411). Paul's calling is recounted in Acts 9:1-19. No Apostle layed hands on Paul for this calling. No one layed hands on Paul except an otherwise unknown disciple named Ananias (Acts 9:10-17).
Acts 19:11
11 And God wrought special MIRACLES, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), by the hands of Paul:
WHO wrought the MIRACLES, ("DUNAMIS" #1411)? NOT the Apostle Paul but GOD WROUGHT SPECIAL MIRACLES, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), by the hands of Paul. God has not changed, He can still do special miracles as and through He pleases.
2 Corinthians 12:12
12 Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and MIGHTY DEEDS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411).
2 Timothy 1:8
8 Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of God;
Romans 1:16
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
The Gospel of Christ = the POWER of God, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), that leads to Salvation for everyone that believes.
1 Thessalonians 1:5
5 For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.
Galatians 3:5
5 He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh MIRACLES, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
He does it by the hearing of faith.
Matthew 11:20-24
20 Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his MIGHTY WORKS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), were done, because they repented not:
21 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the MIGHTY WORKS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.
22 But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.
23 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the MIGHTY WORKS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.
24 But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.
Luke 10:13
13 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the MIGHTY WORKS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), 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.
John 15:22, 24
22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.
24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin:
There is something about preaching the Gospel with accompanying demonstration of MIGHTY WORKS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), that takes all excuse away from those who refuse to repent.
2 Peter 1:16
16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
Romans 15:19
19 Through MIGHTY, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), signs and wonders, by the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.
In a single sentence, Paul twice emphasizes how much he relied upon the MIGHTY, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), signs and wonders, by the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of the Spirit of God to preach the Gospel of Christ.
1 Corinthians 1:18
18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of God.
Those of us which are saved by the preaching of the cross recognise the value of the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of God. It is all foolishness to those that perish.
1 Corinthians 2:4-5
4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), :
5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of God.
God wants our faith established upon His "DUNAMIS" #1411 MIRACLE-WORKING POWER accompanying Gospel preaching with demonstrations of His "DUNAMIS" #1411 POWER.
1 Corinthians 4:19
19 But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411).
Speech alone did not impress Paul; he was looking to know POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411). Why?
1 Corinthians 4:20
For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411).
There you go, The Kingdom of God is all about POWER, "DUNAMIS" #1411, not powerless words alone.
Matthew 7:22
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many WONDERFUL WORKS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411) ?
One of the first things Jesus taught was this: Just because someone does WONDERFUL WORKS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), does not mean everything they say and do is right with God.
Acts 8:10
10 [Simon] To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of God.
Here we see that just because one is regarded as exercising "DUNAMIS" POWER, we are not to accept them as authoritative based upon that alone.
Acts 8:13
13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the MIRACLES, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and signs which were done.
Again, "DUNAMIS" #1411 = the spiritual gift of The Working of Miracles, ("DUNAMIS" #1411) ~ 1 Cor 12:10.
2 Corinthians 6:4-10
4 But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,
5 In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings;
6 By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,
7 By the word of truth, by the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,
8 By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true;
9 As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed;
10 As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.
The Bible's preachers were proven to be the ministers of God by more than just demonstrations of POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411). Therefore, demonstrations of MIRACULOUS POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), alone are not enough to convince that one is indeed a minister of God. Arguments demanding that one immediately submit to an acclaimed worker of MIRACLES, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), are ludicrous.
2 Corinthians 1:8
8 For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above STRENGTH, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), insomuch that we despaired even of life:
2 Corinthians 8:3
3 For to their POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), I bear record, yea, and beyond their POWER they were willing of themselves;
There is our own POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and there is God's POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411) which is as God Himself is, SUPERNATURAL.
Revelation 3:8
8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little STRENGTH, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
Matthew 25:15
15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ABILITY, ("DUNAMIS" #1411); and straightway took his journey.
Mark 9:39
39 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a MIRACLE, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.
No man working a MIRACLE, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), in Jesus' Name can easily speak evil of Him.
1 Corinthians 5:4
4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of our Lord Jesus Christ,
The Bible's Christians were expected to gather together in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and with the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Hebrews 11:11
11 Through faith also Sara herself received STRENGTH, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
Hebrews 11:34
34 Quenched the VIOLENCE, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
2 Timothy 1:7
7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and of love, and of a sound mind.
God has given us Christians of that same Spirit of POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), along with love and a sound mind. These remain along with Faith, Hope, and Love mentioned in 1 Cor 13:13.
2 Corinthians 4:7
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), may be of God, and not of us.
This POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), is a treasure within us believers and works in such a way through our various difficulties to bring excellency attributed to God, not to ourselves.
2 Corinthians 12:9
9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my STRENGTH, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of Christ may rest upon me.
There is a connection between human weakness and the manifestation of Christ's STRENGTH, ("DUNAMIS" #1411) through His servant. Christ's glories in his own human weaknesses since he knows that as a consequence of them Christ's POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), comes to rest upon him.
1 Corinthians 6:14
14 And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411)
"DUNAMIS" #1411 is the POWER by which God raised Jesus and raises us up. Anyone claiming to be raised up by God must concede that it is "DUNAMIS" #1411 POWER that does it.
1 Corinthians 15:43
43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411):
Those of you who consider yourselves already raised from the dead, you must hold that you are raised in POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411). If this POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), ever ceases, you cease.
2 Corinthians 13:4
4 For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of God toward you.
Again, for those of you who regard yourselves already raised, you live by this very POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of God. If "DUNAMIS" #1411 ever ceases, all who are so raised cease along with it.
Philippians 3:10, 15
10 That I may know him, and the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect , be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
Paul's stated goal in life included knowing the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of Christ's Resurrection. Paul instructs that as many as are perfect, ("mature" in the faith), should be so minded, as well.
Colossians 1:29
29 Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me MIGHTILY, ("DUNAMIS" #1411).
1 Corinthians 11:1
11:1 Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ .
2 Thessalonians 1:7
7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his MIGHTY, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), angels,
Angels are characterized by being MIGHTY, ("DUNAMIS" #1411).
Luke 1:35
35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
Jesus was conceived in Mary's womb by POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411).
Mark 6:2
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, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), are wrought by his hands?
There is an acknoledged connection between wisdom and MIGHTY WORKS, ("DUNAMIS" #1411).
1 Corinthians 1:24
24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of God, and the wisdom of God.
CHRIST HIMSELF = "DUNAMIS" POWER OF GOD. So far The Word of God has identified BOTH the Father and the Son Jesus Christ as "DUNAMIS." Its impossible to truthfully say that "DUNAMIS #1411" POWER will ever cease. And so, if Christ indeed dwells in your heart, so does "DUNAMIS" #1411.
Hebrews 7:16
16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of an endless life.
Jesus was made a High Priest forever after the Order of Melchizedek by this POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of an endless life.
Revelation 1:16
16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his STRENGTH, ("DUNAMIS" #1411).
Revelation 5:12
12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), , and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
Luke 22:69
Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of God.
This is why Jesus said in John 14:12
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
Jesus is still with the Father, having offered up His own broken body and shed blood and Jesus has Returned with POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411).
Matthew 26:64
64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and coming in the clouds of heaven.
Jesus refers to God the Father Himself as "DUNAMIS." You cannot separate the presence of God from the presence of "DUNAMIS" #1411. Additionally, Jesus says they would SEE the Son of Man sitting next to God.
Mark 14:62
62 And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and coming in the clouds of heaven.
Jesus again refers to God the Father Himself as "DUNAMIS." And they were to SEE the Son of Man sitting next to God Himself. Its ironic how those who believe HOW this was to happen cannot bring themselves to believe WHEN it was to happen, while those who believe WHEN this was to happen cannot bring themselves to believe HOW this was to happen. Either way, it is the same weakness - lack of faith.
Revelation 4:11
11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), : for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
Revelation 7:12
12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
Glory, wisdom, thanksgiving, and honour, and POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), and might remain forever associated with our God. (So do Faith, Hope, and Love even thought they are not specifically mentioned here).
Ephesians 1:15-23
15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,
16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
19 And what is the exceeding greatness of His POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), to usward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
Ephesians 3:14-21
14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with MIGHT, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), by his Spirit in the inner man;
17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), that worketh in us,
21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
Romans 15:13
Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the POWER of the Holy Ghost.
2 Thessalonians 1:11
11 Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with POWER, ("DUNAMIS" #1411):
1 Corinthians 14:11
11 Therefore if I know not the MEANING, ("DUNAMIS" #1411), of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh shall be a barbarian unto me.
May God grant through our Lord Jesus Christ that this effort help the reader to know the MEANING, ("DUNAMIS" #1411).
