    Do you know your Authority as a Christian?

    Why is it, people fear the devil more than they do God? This blows my mind? The promises Jesus gave to us are out of action in most churches today, and its time to take back what the enemy has stolen.
    Have you lost loved ones due to sickness and disease? Remember all sickness is from the enemy, Not from God. Thing is, Jesus gave us all power and authority to evict the enemy. If you are a Christian, then you are a child of God. When a child of God calls on the Kingdom, heaven hears and agrees. A Christian is, Gods child, mans servant, devils master. Know your position as a child of the Kingdom

    My authority as a Christian is to share the Gospels. I have no authority to judge, criticize, condemn,  or complain. That is my personal belief.

    You were not just told to share brother, but to do. There is no judgement, criticism, condemning or complaint in that question. There is anger at our adversary, but not at my brothers or sisters.
    There is a difference with healthy anger and sin. its in the word. Jesus never put His back out and took 39 stripes for all who follow him to be victims? We were called to heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons and cleanse the lepers, Matt;10vs8. Your commission is in Mark 16;vs15-18.

    Yes I do know that I have "Authority" over evil and the devil in "The name of Christ Jesus" I as a Christian and a child of Almighty God have the right and obligation to exercise my authority but only through Jesus.

    We fear the Devil, but not more than God, because we are not outnumbered there are more with us than there are with them.  If part of his mob assaults we have a victory.  Be careful what you read, because you can be wrongly influenced by apostate literature that features hidden forces that can actually control your thinking.   

    The key to victory is to resist—never tire of resisting. Keep on fighting, never for a moment relinquishing your Christian privileges under demon pressure. “Oppose the Devil, and he will flee from you.” (Jas. 4:7, 8)

    Do not let you mind be emptied, or corrupted by stuff you read.  Instead Fill your mind with the protective truths in God’s Word.   

    Satan uses this apostate literature—oh! It looks good!—But it’s designed that way!  Satan keeps transforming himself into an angel of light to blind us from the glorious good news we read in the Bible.  That’s his method, to immerse us into procedures that invite demonic forces to control our minds.

    Staying clear of that, and associating regularly with God’s people will erase that fear of the Devil, and replace it with true friends who are loving all of the time.
