    Power of the Prophet
    Laverne Long
    In Luke 24:45 it says, "Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures". The setting is after Jesus arose. This captured my attention because they knew Greek and Hebrew. They also knew the Law. After that, they followed Jesus around for three and a half years listening

    book excerpt

    The main theme in this book: Understanding
    The main character: Simeon
    What we are trying to accomplish: Growth
    Highly documented:

    This book is about growth. Chapter One is about the importance of understanding Scripture. It is proportional to one's knowledge, wisdom, power, and much more. In the secular world, understanding comes by knowledge. In the spiritual world, however, knowledge comes from understanding.
    Chapter Two is about Reuben, the first son of Jacob. As the first, he types the growth of the father. Simeon is the subject of Chapter Three. He is a type of the Word and Jesus. Levi in Chapter Four represents the Spirit. It takes the three to be complete.
    Judah is covered in Chapter Five and represents a king. Chapters Six and Seven are more about the Word. They give the primary duties of the saint, for the conversion of the body, soul, and spirit.
    Jesus was the Word that came from the Spirit. To believe in Christ is to believe we can be like Him. And it was by the Spirit that the Word demonstrated the Spirit.
    And it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him... I John 3:2.
    To be like Him is to be in like manner. We do the same things He did, the same way He did them. Jesus was not a preacher, He was a teacher and healer which demonstrated His power. To be like Him demands a greater understanding.
    "When Jacob prophesied over his sons before his death, he spoke of Reuben as the beginning of his strength. Reuben was the beginning of the power of the Kingdom because strength is the beginning of power. Our birthright is to serve and to build the kingdom and power of God." (Page 30)
    "Whatever one's idea of growth, it should include a desire for the power and authority of God. These things only come by hearing intelligently. This Jesus said in John 4:26. Building the kingdom is part of the repenting process after the new birth. Jesus shed blood three times, not one." (Page 65)
    When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. I Cor. 13:11
    For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. Rom. 8:14
    Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father. Gal. 4:1-2
    "The Spirit of God is the power of God, and "the Word of God is the authority of God." (Page 104) "Notice that power comes after the increase of knowledge." (Page 58)
    "Aaron, through Moses, had the Word, but he did not have the authority of the Word. Authority comes after knowledge. Remember! The apostles received the Word before they received the authority of the Word." (Page 74)
    "The sons of Jacob represent the skills or qualities of our vocation. God changed Jacob's name to Israel which means "to rule as God." (Strong's OT:3478) In Genesis 49:3, Jacob stated that Reuben was the beginning of his strength. Do we need strength to rule as God? When the children of Israel crossed the Red Sea, Moses held out his hand to part the water (Ex.14:2)." (Page 39)
    "When they crossed Jordan, it was the priest or the strength of Israel that parted the water. Jacob was the name of the son of Isaac, and he carried that name until his death." (Page 40)
    "That is how Jesus answered Nicodemus in John 3:2-5 when he asked, "How may I receive this power?" He told Nicodemus, "Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God." Jesus explained there are a time and an order that one must follow or grow into by the Spirit." (Page 49)
    Entering the power portion of the kingdom is not the same as the plan of salvation. It is by one's demonstration that he proves himself.
    The one who excels in God is the one that has the understanding of the wisdom of God. It takes wisdom to learn to serve God completely. Proverbs 4:7
    "The second thing we must do is replace the deeds of the old man with deeds of righteousness. That is the very thing Jokshan does, he uses what Zimran taught him and what is by the senses of man. This is called the cleansing of the spirit. Man is led by his spirit. The cleansing of the spirit is proportional to the cleanliness of the man." (Page 133)
    "Epher is a type of the one who received forgiveness for the sins of the body, soul, and the spirit. Jesus, himself, shed blood in three places: in Gethsemane for the soul, at Pilate's hall for the spirit, and at Calvary for the body. This requires the teaching of Matthew 28:19. (Page 149) The subject there is "ye." We are to go and teach the cleansing of the body, soul, and spirit of man. (Page 135)
    "Simeon is one of the most important persons in the Old Testament. It was Simeon that Joseph held hostage before he led the children of Israel out of Egypt (Gen. 42:24). The apostle Peter whose given name was Simon preached on the day of Pentecost again leading God's children out. It is interesting to note that Simon translated means Simeon (Strong's NT:4613). Moreover, it was Peter to whom Jesus gave the keys to the kingdom. Only a king with ability carries the keys." (Page 148)
