THE POWER

"Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."

The power to save another lies in the gospel of Christ, when we tell it to another in person with our mouth; But the so-called churches are not preaching the gospel or teaching others to preach it (See THE BIG LIE on www.preach-the-gospel.org.).

Christ says - "In vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men... Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch (Mt 15.9 & 14) and the Apostle Paul, "... if any man preach any other gospel to you than that you have received, let him be accursed (Gal 1.9b). He wrote, "I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes (Rom 1.16);" and perfectly defined the gospel in his first letter to the Corinthian believers - "I delivered to you first all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures: And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures (1 Cor 15.3-4)." "I have begotten you through the gospel (Cor 4.15)."

We get the same results the Apostle Paul got we when tell another the good news (gospel) in person with our mouth as he did (Eph 6.19-20 & Col 4.3-4). Therefore we ought to "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature (Mk 16.15)." as Christ commands us to do, teaching them that believe to preach it as well (Mt 28.20). The gospel truly is powerful. There is no defense against it if we utter it to another. The hearer must reckon with it for it puts their heart on the spot. They must make a decision whether or not to believe. The neat thing is that the instant they believe (most do) they are born again into the family of God. If somebody tells me they don't want to hear it I tell them, "It's too late. I already told you."

The gospel is the supernatural power of God to save every one that believes when we tell it to them in person with our mouth so let's boldly preach it to others. Simply ask another if they have heard the good news (Gospel means good news.) and tell them - "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose from the grave three days later (1 Cor 15.3b-4 revised)."
