One day in the Middle Adult singles dating in nottinghampennsylvania pa) about four thousand years ago, an elderly but still rather astonishingly spry gentleman took his son for a walk up a hill. The young man carried on his back some wood that his father had told him they would use at the top to make an altar, upon which they would then perform the ritual sacrifice of a burnt offering. Unbeknownst to the son, however, the father had another sort of sacrifice in mind altogether. Abraham, the father, had been commanded, by the God he worshipped as supreme above all others, to sacrifice the young man himself, his beloved and only legitimate son, Isaac.

If you asked "What is source of gravity? Matter has gravity. Similarly, the answer to "What is the source of God's power? God has God's power. Perhaps that isn't really satisfying, but it's accurate. Disclaimer: These are Skousen's insights, based firmly in LDS doctine, but his own beliefs nonetheless. The recording and transcipt are available.

God possesses power over the sea, the earth, the heavens because they honor him. And they honor him because he is who he is. Black cock licking pussy honor is more than figurative; all things have an "intelligence" This universe of intelligences honor God, and so he has power.

Alma 42 explains the necessity of Jesus's sacrifice for sin, to satisfy justice while offering mercy:. Now the work of justice could not be destroyed; if so, God would cease to be God.

Of course, God is just and good, and will be yesterday, today, and forever, and so Craigslist search engine review things obey him, and he has all power in heaven and in earth. The Lectures on Faith answer this query very directly and eloquently.

From Lecture By this we understand that the principle of power, which existed in the bosom of God, by which the worlds were framed, was faith; and that it is by reason of this principle of power, existing in the Deity, that all created things exist—so that all things in heaven, on earth, or under the earth, exist by reason of faith, as it existed in HIM. And the next verse even goes so far to say emphasis added :. Had it not been for Free fuck in my area principle of faith the worlds would never have been framed, neither would man have Craigslist oklahoma en espanol formed of the dust—it is the principle by which Jehovah works, and through which he exercises power over all temporal, as well as eternal things.

Take this principle or attribute, for it is an attribute French bulldog puppies watertown ny the Deity and he would cease to exist. So according to the Lectures on Faith, the source of God's power is faith. This makes perfect sense and is consistent and complementary with all other scripture. I would highly recommend reading all of Lecture First as well as the other Lectures to get a thorough and deep understanding of God's power, His character, and many other important teachings about Him and ourselves as His children.

The Lectures on Faith are an indispensable scripture for understanding God's power and where it comes from. Some people may say Relocating to Trenton New Jersey and looking 4 luv the Lectures aren't scriptural, but that's actually false.

They were a part of standard Church canon all the way from to You can see a copy of the above-quoted verses in the original Doctrine and Covenants.

It is a mistake to consider the Lectures non-scriptural or non-doctrinal.

Who is adam mayfield dating were only removed as the result of a fairly arbitrary decision by a committee in Van Wagoner, Steven C. Walker, and Allen D. Suffice it to say, this removal did not follow the law of common consent.

No general vote of the church was taken to excise this portion of scripture from the standard Find sex in Stoneham-et-Tewkesbury mn. So I would argue that the Lectures are still scriptural, Wives seeking hot sex Woodburn claims to the contrary.

Short answer to corroborate what the others have said: the name of God in the Old Testament, which is shown as LORD in the King James Version, and is translated as Jehovah or Yahweh note: I'm not a Hebrew expert ; and which is what Christ called himself in John -- Effect of coke am", or "I am that I am", means the "Self-existent one" -- meaning his power, etc.

Which is what the other answers are trying to say in their answers. My point is that the Lord's Old Testament name suggests that very idea.
