TRANSCRIPT

  • With Great Powers by Jerry Dan Goldman

    The first Spider-Man film tells the

    origin story of the hero: how Peter

    Parker got bitten by a spider, put

    on a costume, had his friend Harry

    Osbourne get mad at him, fell in

    love with Mary Jane Watson, and

    battled the Green Goblin

    SPIDERMAN 1

  • The Spiderman story started with

    the life struggle of an extremely

    shy and reserved teenager, Peter

    Parker. Though he is from a

    humble background, he is

    exceptionally brilliant in

    academics. He has a friend that is

    to later become his sworn enemy

    who hails from a wealthy family

    and he is also emotionally

    attached to Mary-Jane a

    classmate.

    Peter's adventure began when he

    was bitten by one of the new

    species of radioactive spider.

    This experiment got him infected

    supernaturally with spider like

    ability. Soon he could spin webs

    and developed extra sensory

    features which made him super

    normal, possessing extra ordinary

    strength and powers.

    Display of Power

    The transformation of Parker

    from an ordinary folk to a super

    normal being is so likened to the

    change and adventure that God

    has determined to display in the

    lives of some chosen ones in this

    end times. You see the fact is that

    everyone who is born anew by

    the Spirit of God actually

    undergoes a great change

    figuratively similar to this in their

    human spirits and now God is

    determined to make this spiritual

    change reflect in the physical (i.e.

    outwardly) in the lives of some.

    This is

    for a

    special

    reason

    that is to

    establish

    His

    Kingdom

    on earth

    through

    the

    display

    of His

    power. It

    says,

    through

    the

    greatness

    of thy power, thy enemies shall

    submit themselves to you (Ps...

    )

    The similarities between the

    adventure of Spiderman and

    those God has purposed to use is

    so striking that they are worthy

    of note.

    Let's quickly examine them

    (1) Ordinary folk with

    humble background. As the guy

    Great Change

  • With Great Powers comes

    great responsibilities

    behind the spider mask was a

    normal folk with life challenges

    that seems to be overwhelming,

    God's mighty ones in this end time

    are guys who are also bedevilled

    with life challenges.many wise men

    after the flesh, not many mighty, not

    many noble, are called. But God hath

    chosen the foolish things of the

    world to confound the wise; and God

    hath chosen the weak things of the

    world to confound the things which

    are mighty; And base things of the

    world, and things which are despised,

    hath God

    chosen,

    yea, and

    things

    which are

    not, to

    bring to

    nought

    things that

    are: That

    no flesh

    should glory in his presence. (I cor.

    1: 26-29).

    And even after they are

    transformed some of these will still

    face them to help keep them humble

    in spite of the great things the Spirit

    of God will wrought through them.

    One of the greatest super heroes of

    all time, Paul the apostle who so

    demonstrate the power of God to

    the extent that he was mistaken for

    a god that should be worshiped at

    different times had this to say, And

    lest I should be exalted above

    measure through the abundance of

    the revelations, there was given to me

    a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of

    Satan to buffet me, lest I should be

    exalted above measure.

    For this thing I besought the Lord

    thrice, that it might depart from me.

    And he said unto me, My grace is

    sufficient for thee: for my strength is

    made perfect in weakness. Most

    gladly therefore will I rather glory in

    my infirmities, that the power of

    Christ may rest upon me. Therefore

    I take pleasure in infirmities, in

    reproaches, in necessities, in

    persecutions, in distresses for

    Christs sake: for when I am weak,

    then am I strong(Act 14:8-12 &

    28:6)). I

    hope

    you

    have

    been

    convince

    d beyond reasonable doubt that this

    is necessary for your perfection.

    2.) He got transformed:

    Transformation will be the

    hallmark of those who will be used

    either by God or the devil. What

    you get transformed into depends

    on what you are exposed to. Peter

    Parker get transformed into a life

    saving hero but the father of his

    friend, Dr. Osborne got possessed

    by a destructive demon. So its either

    you are exposed to the Spirit of God

    or to dark spirits. When the first

    king of the ancient Israel got

    exposed to the Spirit of God see

    what happened:Then Samuel took

  • Saul also among the prophets? (I sam.

    10:1,9).

    See this examples of some of God's

    super hero in history:

    DAVID

    Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and

    anointed him in the midst of his

    brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD

    came upon David from that day

    forward. So Samuel rose up, and went

    to Ramah (I Sam 16:13).

    JEPHTAH

    ''Then the Spirit of the LORD came

    upon Jephthah, and he passed over

    Gilead, and Manasseh, and passed over

    Mizpah of Gilead, and from Mizpah of

    Gilead he passed over unto the children

    of Ammon...So Jephthah passed over

    unto the children of Ammon to fight

    against them; and the LORD delivered

    them into his hands.And he smote them

    from Aroer, even till thou come to

    Minnith, even twenty cities, and unto the

    plain of the vineyards, with a very great

    slaughter. Thus the children of Ammon

    were subdued before the children of

    Israel.'' (Judges 11:29, 32-33).

    OTHNIEL

    And when the children of Israel cried

    unto the LORD, the LORD raised up a

    deliverer to the children of Israel, who

    delivered them, even Othniel the son of

    Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother.

    And the Spirit of the LORD came upon

    him, and he judged Israel, and went out

    to war: and the LORD delivered

    Chushanrishathaim king of

    Mesopotamia into his hand; and his

    hand prevailed against

    Chushanrishathaim. And the land had

    rest forty years. Judges 3:9-10

    The Spirit of God will be anointing

    some for special assignments this end-

    time and its going to be a swell time in

    Gods presence. Are you qualified to be

    one of these? Are you positioned to get

    this commissioning from the Most

    High?

    When He comes looking for whom to

    use, would you be found worthy or

    wanting. Are you serious with God or

    you are still playing the hide and seek

    game like Adam did when God came

    calling(Gen. 3:8-10). God told cain, If

    thou doest well, shalt thou not be

    accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin

    lies at the door and seeks to master

    you (Gen 4:7). So you see, you are the

    determining factor.

    You need a new life that only faith in the atoning work of Christ can give you. The atoning work

    of Christ is what Jesus Christ the Son of the living God did when he died as a substitute for all

    mankind on the cross. When you believe in this act of sacrifice and ask Christ to come into your

    heart to change you, then this new life that has the capacity to house the Spirit of the living God

    will be yours. Find a private place to pray this prayer now because the Spirit of God is where

    you are, ready to listen and act on your request. Well be happy to hear that you are now a child

    of God and will be more than willing to guide you through the greatest adventure ever. Please

  • The Super Hero Series

    The Super Hero Series is aimed at bringing the salient truths of the

    scripture home to the young adults by using what they are familiar with to

    demonstrate what God is talking about. The movies they watch and the

    books they read speak their language and that is the language God wants

    to relate with these privileged ones. Some of the topics available are listed

    below:
