Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.

2 Timothy 1:7 God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love, and of self-discipline.

1 Corinthians 1:18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

Ephesians 3:16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being.

So, power in the (original) Scripture is about the Spirit/Soul, the Source of Life: Light. Christ is just another Hellenic word for “Light” and in the prototypical script, was female (learn more here).

Of course, the flipside is the abuse of power, reflected in the following verse:

2 Timothy 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. (They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from such people.)

This Biblical passage is alluding to the phenomenon of soullessness: those who reject the power within, the Source of Life, are more likely to do evil. Those who deny their own power are going to take that power from others: this is what constitutes an abuse of power.

Do you accept, or reject, your power?
