As the apostle Paul said, “ to the rest speak I and not the Lord.”

The single most powerful packet of energy known to mankind is the atom.  The atom is the smallest particle that any element can be divided into and still remain the same element.  (That definition will be shown to be very important on the page, Time and Eternity)

When I was in the Navy, my last 8 years were spent as a Nuclear Weapons Officer in the Polaris, Poseidon, and Trident Ballistic Missile Programs, so, considering the complexity of a single atom, I learned a very small bit about how much power is contained within the atom

The Hydrogen atom is the simplest atom in the material realm. It consists of only one proton at its core and one orbiting electron in its outer shell. (as far as man knows anyway) Hydrogen is a stable element, meaning what Hydrogen was when it was created, it is the same today, and it will be the same on into the future.

Hydrogen has an isotope, or the same element but with a different atomic weight. Deuterium is a stable isotope of Hydrogen and is much rarer in nature than regular Hydrogen. Deuterium consists of one proton and one neutron in its core and one electron in its outer orbit.

Tritium is a second isotope of Hydrogen, having one proton and two neutrons in its core and one electron in its outer orbit.  Deuterium and Tritium are the two isotopes of Hydrogen used in Nuclear Fusion.  Hydrogen fusion is the kind of fusion that fuels our Sun, and all of the the stars of Creation. It is also used in Hydrogen Bombs.


The picture above shows the fusion of one atom of Deuterium with one atom of Tritium, resulting in one atom of Helium (He4)  also called an alpha particle, and one neutron, and 17.6 million electron volts of energy.

One Mev of energy = approximately 4.5 x 10 to the minus 20, or .00000000000000000000045 Kilowatt hours of electrical energy. So this fusion process yields a very small amount of electrical energy for each fusion reaction.  But considering the uncountable  number of such reactions in a typical H Bomb, the result is a staggering amount of power.  And Jesus holds that power in his hand, plus that power multiplied by an unimaginable number of atoms in an unimaginable number of stars, of which only He knows the magnitude. He also knows the names of each of those stars.  If he has named all those stars and calls then by name,  it is a very small thing for him to remember all of us.

So the next time you call on Jesus, do not doubt his power to grant your petition.  Do not doubt that He knows who is speaking to Him. Only ask if  it is in His will and His plan for your life that He do it. Jesus taught us to pray, “Thy will be done.”

I was trained in the Navy to obey without questioning .  Jesus does not mind our questions, it is just that sometimes the answer is that it has not been given to us to know just yet, and we should wait in hope until the answer comes or when we see him. When we are hurting, or suffering, in sorrow, or in pain, every moment can sometimes seem like a lifetime.  Remember just how short our lifetimes are when you study the page, “Time and Eternity.”

Welcome to the All Power page of the Cross Point Awakening Web Site. This page contains some conjecture on my part about the amount of power our Lord holds in His Hand, But I believe I am mostly on solid ground with what I believe about that subject.

The Power to Love

1 Pet. 4:8-9  And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall

cover the multitude of sins.  (9)  Use hospitality one to another without grudging.


Rom. 13:8  Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath

 fulfilled the law.

John 15:12  This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.


Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.  (23)  I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. Isa. 45:22-23 

1 Cor. 12:31  But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

1 Cor. 13:8  Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
