The Believers are as Powerful as Christ?
Eph 1:18 ...that you may know... (19) And what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the operation of the might of His strength, (20) Which He caused to operate in Christ in raising Him from the dead and seating Him at His right hand in the heavenlies, Words of Ministry
This power is toward the believers. It is like the electrical power that is continually being transmitted from the power plant to our building for our daily life. In the same principle, the divine power is being transmitted into us continually.... The surpassingly great power of God toward us is according to the operation of the might of His strength which He wrought in Christ. God's power toward us is the same power that operated in Christ. As the Body we participate in the power that operates in the Head. The great power that operated in Christ firstly raised Him from among the dead. This power has overcome death, the grave, and Hades, the place where the dead are held. Because of God's resurrection power, death and Hades could not hold Christ. If we knew the surpassing greatness of the divine power that operated in Christ, we would never again use our weakness as an excuse. In relation to such a power, our weakness means nothing. Expecting me to sympathize with them, the sisters have often told me that they are weak vessels, but I do not sympathize with their weaknesses because the heavenly electrical power is available to them. With this power there is no weakness.
