OUR POWER IS THE MANIFEST PRESENCE OF GOD 10-13-19 VIDEO
On Pentecost those waiting were filled with power. They were filled with the manifest presence of God. He came upon them and filed them and never left them. Theres a difference between God being everywhere and Gods manifest presence being upon us. The result of the manifest presence of God in the lives of the disciples was the power to turn the whole world upside down. Manifest presence of God in his presence is where he reveals himself as one with the personality and feelings. Gods manifest power reveals God to us in a tangible way. Jesus was the manifest presence of God during his ministry on earth. When God manifest his presence he reveals his glory. He doesnt just want us to know about him but to experience him. His manifest presence changes us. It changes our motives. When we meet with God something changes in us.
Paul saw Jesus on the Damascus Road it was forever changed. And yet he still pressed in for more of the manifest presence of God. It leaves you hungry for more it gives you the power to change circumstances. The manifest presence of God in the Old Testament kind of came and went. When the Holy Spirit was given he became the manifest power of God in us. Because he is God. And he remains with us forever. The manifest presence of God the power of the Holy Spirit is for us and for our children.

Phil 3:9 And that I may [actually] be found and known as in Him, not having any [self-achieved] righteousness that can be called my own, based on my obedience to the Law's demands (ritualistic uprightness and supposed right standing with God thus acquired), but possessing that [genuine righteousness] which comes through faith in Christ (the Anointed One), the [truly] right standing with God, which comes from God by [saving] faith.
10 [For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers], and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed [in spirit into His likeness even] to His death, [in the hope]
11 That if possible I may attain to the [spiritual and moral] resurrection [that lifts me] out from among the dead [even while in the body].
12 Not that I have now attained [this ideal], or have already been made perfect, but I press on to lay hold of (grasp) and make my own, that for which Christ Jesus (the Messiah) has laid hold of me and made me His own.
13 I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own [yet]; but one thing I do [it is my one aspiration]: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead,
14 I press on toward the goal to win the [supreme and heavenly] prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward. AMP
