Title: THE POWER IN THE REVEALED DIMENSIONS OF GOD IN JESUS CHRIST
“And God said to Moses, “I am Yahweh—‘the LORD.’ I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob as El-Shaddai—‘God Almighty’ —but I did not reveal my name, Yahweh, to them”Exodus 6:2-3 (NLT)
Over the years of God’s dealings with man before Christ, He had revealed Himself to men in diverse ways. Each revelation carried a Name along with it. God Almighty, God the Provider, God the One who sees me and all. Each revealed Name wasn’t like the proper, direct name of God per se but a direct result of the dimension of Himself that He revealed unto them. And of course, you know that eventually He revealed Himself through the Son and the name Jesus became the Name above every other name, both in Heaven and in Earth or underneath it, both in the past, present and future. The name Jesus has become the revealed all-encompassing name of the Lord. – Isa. 9:6, Phil. 2:9-11, John 1:1 & 14, John 10:30, Mark 16:17-19
But today, my focus is this: what dimension of God has been revealed to you?
There is a reason the Apostle Paul prayed the Ephesians 1:17-19 prayers: “that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power”.
When we know God according to a revealed dimension, we have power and audacity in that dimension as it becomes unique to us. It’s true. The man that receives revelation of Jesus the Healer will command sickness without struggles. When he receives an encounter of Jesus the Provider, you’ll be shocked at the confidence with which he will be expecting provision and commanding it. Why, because something has been revealed to him in that dimension.
It is very important that we ask the Lord to reveal dimensions of Himself to us according to our positions, assignments, state and vision in life. There are certain things that have held you back that wouldn’t have if only you caught a revelation of who your Father is and who He has made you as well in that area. We can’t continue to seek God corporately and expect to catch Him individually. No, it doesn’t work that way.
That I may know Him. This was Paul’s cry in Phil. 3:10. But did he not know Him? Yes, he did. What he meant was that, he sought to be given more insight into diverse dimensions of God. You’ll be unstoppable if you can catch certain unique revelations of God peculiar to you. Not the dimension revealed to me but the one revealed to you. Everyone commands according to the dimension they’ve been shown. What has God revealed Himself to you as through His Son Jesus?
The name Almighty with which He revealed Himself to the patriarchs was a definition of His ability (I can). But when He was to reveal Himself to a people surrounded by many gods in the land of Egypt, He would go on to reveal Himself as Jehovah, the only Self-Existent God (I Am). One generation caused effect by the I CAN revelation, while another generation would shake nations by the I AM revelation. Do you get this?
When you step out today, what dimension of Jesus will you go with, Savior, Healer, Master, Helper, Friend? Whatever dimension you catch is the dimension you’ll command influence with.
May we continue to dwell before the Lord in deep hunger daily and may His Spirit continue to empower us for exploits through diverse insights into the greatness of our God’s name that has been given to us.
You can pray the Ephesians 1:17-20 prayers daily with a heart after the Lord.
