“Then” means it was in the past.
“Power” means present.
“Will” means future.
This is simple,  but in English there might be more to it than that. What is a problem for many people is that the important element of a sentence that is a verb or verb changes form with each tense.

Techniques for understanding and using Tense
Studying Tense or any subject, if you do it in steps and gradually build on it from the easier to the more difficult steps. For Tense, at the beginning, don't look too far into the 12 tenses because it can get confusing. Techniques for understanding start with something simple:
1.    Stick to the first 3 tenses first, just Past Present Future.
2.    Know the structure (Structure) of sentences initially. Start with a simple sentence that has elements: Subject, Verb, and Object.
3.    Catch the Verb element because it is an important part that must always change form in each Tense to indicate whether the sentence is Past, Present or Future.
4.    Know the 3 types of verbs and how the verbs in all 3 tenses must be changed. This is very important. It takes a little bit of surfing. But it's not too difficult. Practice using it often to help you remember.
These 3 points are the basics of learning Tense easily. Once you are fluent, you can then expand on other Tense besides these.

More than Tense is Dimension, the dimension of time.
When you're fluent We will move on to other tenses. What are the added tenses besides these 3 tenses? Why are there so many?
The added tense is called the deeper dimension of time. It is an expansion of how deep the actions in the Past, Present, and Future are. Simply put, it is the events that occur. or how long the action took place From when to when? For example, did you go to school this morning and are you still at school now? How long has it been since you ate the meal? Or just ate it recently? Have you stopped taking it now or are you still taking it?
Those dimensions are
•    Simple, common events tell the truth.
•    Continuous: An event is occurring and has a continuation.
•    Perfect: An event that occurred over a long period of time.
•    Perfect Continuous: The event occurred over a long period of time and is still continuing.
When these dimensions are placed in every tense (Past, Present, and Future), it will make each tense have 4 dimensions as follows.
•  Past simple tense such as: She watched TV.
•    Past continuous tense e.g. She was watching TV.
•    Past perfect tense e.g.: She had watched TV.
•    Past Perfect continuous tense, for example: She had been watching TV.
•    Present simple tense such as: She watches TV.
•    Present continuous tense e.g. She is watching TV.
•    Present perfect tense such as: She has watched TV.
•    Present Perfect continuous tense, for example: She has been watching TV.
•    Future simple tense such as: She will watch TV.
•    Future continuous tense e.g.: She will be watching TV.
•    Future perfect tense such as: She will have watched TV.
•    Future Perfect continuous tense, for example: She will have been watching TV.
In total, there are 12 tenses.
