HE DOESN'T REST UPON YOU<p><b>Rhapsody Devotional Tuesday July 10th 2018</b>

The emphasis throughout the Scriptures is for us to be full of the Spirit because He lives in us. This was the standard in the early Church, and it’s still our standard today

HE DOESN’T REST UPON YOU
Tuesday July 10th, 2018

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me (2 Corinthians 12:9).

Actually, it’s not scripturally correct in the New Testament to say, “May God’s Spirit rest upon you.” Someone may read our opening verse and run off with the idea that even Paul desired that the power of Christ may “rest upon him.” That wasn’t the case.

What Paul said wasn’t about the power of Christ resting upon him. The word translated “rest” is from the Greek, “episkenoo,” which is a combination of two words: “epi” meaning “a superimposition,”̄ and “skenoo” meaning “habitation.” “Episkenoo” therefore means, “coming over something to take charge of it from within.” Paul was in other words describing his experience of being continuously filled with the Spirit.

Another use of the term “rest upon” is seen in 1 Peter 4:14, where the Bible says, “If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and ̄of God resteth upon you….” Here, the word, “anapauo” is used, which refers to being refreshed or given rest, but not as in sleep. If you study the context, you’ll observe that it says, if you’re persecuted because of Jesus, happy are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God will give you rest; He refreshes you and strengthens you. The Greek word doesn’t say rest upon you; it can’t even be translated that way.

    A Spirit power life built on the scriptures. Words of life and Power. Greater, greater than our enemies and all their poison. Greater than all their gang stalking, abuse, surveillance- control freaks. Control freaks who want to drag you down with them, to their level. God is the only God higher, greater full of power and whose ways are a wonder. "the Lord is above all gods for the thing wherein they dealt proudly he was above them" "though i walk through the midst of trouble thou wilt revive me" "greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world" "Whatsoever is Born of God overcometh the world and this is the victory that overcometh the world even our faith". Building up faith is awesome! haha it overcomes the world! Building with scriptures that say Victory! Triumph! Conquer! uPower! Glory! Thats a sure place to dwell!.A fortress!
