A CHRISTIAN’S AUTHORITY IS IN CHRIST JESUS!
Even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:5-6).
A Christian should know the fact that his authority is in Jesus Christ. He has no authority of his own as a Christian except the authority of Christ Jesus that had been imputed upon him by His grace in life. The Bible says in the opening text that even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that his authority is in the Name of Jesus Christ in life forever.
When Jesus Christ was upon the surface of the earth, He delegated His authority to His disciples to cast away demons, heal the sick and set free the captives in life. That is why the Bible says in Luke 10:19, “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Therefore, a Christian’s authority is in Christ Jesus and he is expected to rule and dominate in life and ministry. The authority of Jesus Christ has been delegated to every Christian in life. Hence, he is expected to fully utilize the authority in the Name of Jesus Christ and fully exercise dominion on the earth in life forever.
Every Christian should endeavor to learn how to exercise his authority using the Name of Jesus Christ as his divine weapon of attacks and defense in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Philippians 2:10, “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth.” In fact, whenever a Christian learns to use the Name of Jesus Christ as his authority in life and ministry, he therefore takes dominion in heaven, earth and even in the abyss. The authority in the Name of Jesus Christ is far above every other authority in heaven, earth and in the abyss forever.
Daily Tip: Every Christian’s authority is in the Name of Jesus Christ, and this authority supersedes every other authority in heaven, earth and in the abyss forever. Shalom!
Golden Text: But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name (John 1:12).
