3 Universal Powers

2 Dimensions. 1 Decision. 0 Neutrality.
by Pastor John Hamel

“I call Heaven and Earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.” (Deuteronomy 30:19)

There are only 3 Powers in the Universe.

First, there is the Power of God. 

God is a Benevolent, or a good power. 

The Bible says, “The Lord is good to all and His tender mercies are over all His works.” (Psalm 145:9) Because God made you, you are His “workmanship” and He desires to have mercy on you. (Ephesians 2:10)

God unfairly gets the “heat” for all that goes wrong in the world because most of the world has been religiously brainwashed concerning Him. Regardless, God is not responsible for all the evil in the world.

The Bible says that Satan is the “god of this world” (small “g”) until Jesus returns to whip up on him for all the harm he has brought to humanity. (2Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 10:1-15)

This brings us to the second Universal Power. Satan

Satan is a Malevolent, or an evil power. 

The Bible says he has great wrath upon humanity because he knows he’s going to suffer eternally, and soon, for the destruction he has caused on Planet Earth for centuries. (Revelation 12:12)

Satan is absolutely “nuts,” so to speak, and there is nothing he wouldn’t do to God’s human creation to break His heart. He can’t get directly to God so he goes after His creation with a vengeance.

Third, there is the Power of Man. 

Man has a God-given “free-will” that, in essence, makes him or her a neutral power. 

Man has the God-given option of choosing submission to either God's benevolent power or Satan's malevolent power. 

When man submits to God through Jesus, he takes on the good nature of God. 

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new... For He hath made Him (Jesus) to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him." (2Corinthians 5:17,21) 

When man submits to Satan simply by rejecting Jesus, he maintains the evil nature of Satan. 

"Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience. Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others." (Ephesians 2:2-3) 

Whichever one of the other two Universal Powers man chooses to submit to will automatically determine which of the Two Dimensions he or she will exist in.

I’ll explain.

First There Is the Dimension of Blessing 

This is the dimension presently occupied by all who choose to obey Creator God by submitting to the teachings of the Bible and the Lordship of Jesus. 

"Whosoever cometh to Me, and heareth My sayings, and doeth them, I will show you to whom he is like: he is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock; and when the flood arose the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock." (Luke 6:47-48)

Jesus promised physical, material and financial blessing for all who build upon His Lordship and the rock of His Word.

For a good “nutshell” of all the wonderful blessings this includes, read Deuteronomy 28:1-14. You will absolutely like what you read.

Second There Is the Dimension of Curses 

This is the dimension presently occupied by all who reject the Lordship of Jesus. 

"But he that heareth, and doeth not is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great." (Luke 6:49)

By rejecting the Word of God and the Lordship of Jesus Christ, one automatically falls under the rule and oppression of Satan. Why? Because there are only 3 Universal Powers – God, Satan and Man. There is no neutral ground. When man rejects God’s Peacemaker, Jesus, he automatically connects to the wrong power source. Plain and simple. 

"Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." (Romans 5:1)

There is only one way to have peace with God and that is to connect with Him by accepting, not rejecting, Jesus the Peacemaker.  

"Jesus said, I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by Me." (John 14:6)

Someone said, "I believe there are other ways to God besides Jesus.  But I do believe Jesus is one way to God."  I said, "Then you believe Jesus is a liar or a lunatic because He said in the Bible, 'I am the only way to God.'" 

I have had many Muslims tell me, "I believe Jesus is a good Teacher, a good Prophet and a good man. However, I do not believe He is the only way to God."  I tell them all the same thing, "Then you believe that good Prophets, good Teachers and good men can also be liars, because Jesus said He was the only way to God."

Jesus Christ is the only way to God and He is the only way through which one can enter into the Dimension of Blessing. This is why He referred to Himself as "The Door."

"Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers ... I am the door: by Me if any man enter in he shall be saved ..." (John 10:7-9)

There is only one Door leading into the Dimension of Blessing.  His name is Jesus.

Someone said, “Well that’s archaic and I just don’t believe it.” 

You don’t have to believe it for it to be true. God doesn’t need your faith, approval or permission to keep the Laws of Blessing and Cursing which He slung into motion up and running. 

Because Almighty God created all that is in existence, including you, He gets to make the rules.

The Rule Book says if you’re not submitting to Jesus, you’re submitting to Satan. 

"He that is not with Me is against Me; and he that gathereth not with Me scattereth abroad." (Matthew 12:30) 

Refusing to submit to the Lordship of Jesus Christ automatically places you in the Dimension of Curses, whether you believe it or not. 

If you reject Him, one day you will stand before Him in judgment and you will say, "Well I'll be damned. That little study on 3 Universal Powers was true."  

It will be too late to save you from the suffering of Hell, but you will say it regardless. 

For a good “nutshell” of all the curses Satan’s rebellious adherents live under, see Deuteronomy 28:15-68. You will absolutely dislike everything you read.

Reader, You Now Have a Decision to Make 

Will it be God or Satan? 

Good or Evil?

Blessings or Curses?

If you foolishly choose Satan and his curses, say nothing! You’ll simply remain right where you are in the Dimension of Curses. 

That's for eternity

Jesus said, "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned." (Mark 16:16)

If you wisely choose God and His Blessings, simply say, “Jesus, You’re my choice.” 

"For everyone who calls upon the Name of the Lord [invoking Him as Lord] will be saved." (Romans 10:13 AMP) 

You will be automatically thrust into the Dimension of Blessings

That’s for eternity, too.

"God rescued us from dead-end alleys and dark dungeons. He's set us up in the Kingdom of the Son He loves so much, the Son Who got us out of the pit we were in and got rid of the sins we were doomed to keep repeating." (Colossians 1:13 MSG)
