The Source of The Believer's Authority

Updated on April 9, 2018

Know your Rights

We as children of God need to recognize the authority that we have in Christ.

We find in Matthew 28 verse 18 that Jesus said,” All authority is given unto me both in Heaven and Earth”.

Who gave him this authority?

John 14 verse 10 we find that Jesus said in paraphrase “I do not speak of my own authority but the words that I speak are from the Father who dwells inside me”.

His authority was delegated unto him by the Father.

Everything Jesus did and said, He did it with the authority that God gave to Him. Jesus said both His words and His works were given to Him by God the Father.

The authority given to Jesus was not for a specific time but it is given for all Eternity.

It is important to know that God gave him a name above every name that is named and it is the only name that God will recognize for the forgiveness of sins.

The book of Ephesians declares that God hath made him to be head over all things to the church which is his body.

There is clarity that God hath made him both Lord and Christ.

The bible instructs us that the same authority that God placed on Christ is now delegated to us.

He desires for us to share his Glory with him and sit with him on his throne. We do this by accepting and exercising the authority that has been placed upon us as children of the living God.

We need to know this delegated authority and how it applies to our Christian life. Because we are the Body of Christ here on Earth and Jesus is the Head of the Body, we carry His Authority with us everywhere we go.

It is not Jesus who is physically walking on the earth today, but you and me.

God wants us to know that the authority that He has placed on Jesus Christ is now walking with us.

We apply this authority by realizing that we are the body of Christ on this Earth.

Jesus made the statement in John 16 verse 7 that he must go away or the comforter would not come.

We understand that Jesus was confined in his Earthly body when he walked on this planet. You had to be in the area where he was in order to get something from him.

We all know that God is omnipresent and is everywhere. His throne is in heaven and his wrath fuels the flames of hell.

The devil thought when he killed Jesus that he was doing away with the son of God. Jesus had to go away but not without a body here on this Earth.

Jesus defeated Satan on the cross and took the authority or (keys) of death, hell, and the grave out of his hands and placed him under his feet.

We find in Colossians 2:15 “Jesus disarmed the principalities and powers and made a public example of them, triumphing over them in the cross.”

God came to set us free from the fear and bondage of the devil.


My Conclusion

We are the body of Christ and now instead of having to deal with one man going about doing good and casting out devils, Satan now has to deal with the church which is the body of Christ.

When an invading army would over run a city, they would take the strong into captivity and make them their slaves.

They would leave the weak behind but they would salt their land so that they could not grow their crops and get strong again.

We are the salt per say that are supposed to keep the enemy’s kingdom from regrouping and getting strong again. It is up to us to keep him under our feet.

God's problem is not the power of the enemy but the weakness of a lukewarm compromising church.

All we need to see a change in everything around us is to keep on our knees and see the Holiness of the Living God show up!

The enemy knows that the God who protected the founders of this nation is a strong and powerful God.

He also knows that this perfect being hates sin and Moses states that it is what fuels the flames of hell.

His plan is to get us so wrapped up in sin that our God who hates sin cannot come to our rescue for he is a just and holy being.

He will honor the enemy's rights as well as ours and if we open a door to the enemy then we will suffer the results.

Wake Up America and pray for Revival which means to revive that which is dead and renew that which is dying.

      Jerry: Indeed your work here flows with God's truth. All authority, all comes from "Our Father Almighty God".

      Jesus reminds us of this when His Apostles report back to Jesus about non-believers casting out demons in His Holy Name.
