Ephesians 3:20 “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.”
Colossians 1:27 “To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
While in church last night my Pastor, Bill Virgin, who is a self-proclaimed mountain boy, from the backwoods of Idaho, said, “There is dynamite lying dormant in gold mines all over this nation, and all they need is a detonator.” Now to the naked ear, this may just be a country boy sharing another backwoods story, but for those with ears to hear, this is a piece to the prophetic picture of what God is doing right now on the earth.
There are people all over this nation and the world, living in caves, crevices, condo’s, cities and countries who are packed with dynamite inside of them. They gave their life to Jesus at some point, but never went beyond the salvation experience, or they have yet to crossover to becoming a Christian. Either way, they have dynamite lying dormant inside of them. Everyone one of us was born with dynamite, in the Greek, the word for power is dunamis, which in English is translated dynamite. You are the most powerful person in your life. God made you that way, He is not afraid of your power, actually He wants you to be powerful, that is why He created, inside your inmost being, dynamite.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, “Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.” Being created with eternity in our hearts is dunamis, it is power, it is dynamite, you are, I am, an eternal being, made of indestructible material. But for many the reality of this power lies dormant, we are like a gold mine, that once blown open are going to add value to the world. So, why have we not exploded with all this potential yet? Because we need a detonator.
A detonator is a device or small quantity of explosive used for detonating a high explosive (Merriam Webster online). A detonator is like a mustard seed, it is small, but it packs a punch. The word of God is a detonator, words are detonators, people are detonators. People have said things that have blown us up alright, but not to expose the gold, but rather to expose our shame, sin, or some other issue. But it’s a new day, the detonators God is releasing into your life are there to ignite the dynamite in your life so the gold inside of you is exposed. People are a gold mine and we are called to be gold diggers.
When we use our words as detonators to blow up belief systems that have kept people bound; when we use the word of God to blow up doctrines that have kept people from being powerful; when we use words to expose the gold in people; they then become detonators in someone else’s life to do the same thing. There is dynamite lying dormant in everyone’s life and when a detonator comes into your life, they will blow up your life in a way that exposes the gold in you. Christ in you is the hope of glory and His power is at work within you, He is the dynamite inside of you, He is about to blow our minds, so the gold in us can be seen.
It’s a new day, there is a new way, for glory is on the way. Let God arise and His enemies be scattered.
