Getting To Know God
His Name Is...
The Omnipotent God - The LION Of Judah - The Power Of God - The Omnipresence Of God
Nothing Without Him
Jesus answered, “You could have no power at all against Me unless it had been given you from above. Therefore, the one who delivered Me to you has the greater sin.”
When Jesus stood trial before the Roman government, it seemed to many people at that time like things were out of control. Yet, since God is Almighty, nothing is ever out of His control, no matter what’s going on in any place on Earth. Pontus Pilate felt that he had certain authority over Jesus because of the way things looked. Jesus explained the truth: all power, authority, and ability come from God. If God doesn’t give ability, we don’t have any. Pilate had authority because God let him, then determined the measure he would have. When God gives power, it is only to show His own power in ways that glorify Him, in this case, by the crucifixion.
