AUTHORITY OVER SATAN AND DEMONS IN LIFE!

And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 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” (Luke 10:18-19).

Jesus Christ has given us authority over Satan and demons in life. A Christian has the authority in Christ Jesus to bind and also loose in life (Matthew 18:18). In fact, Jesus Christ told the disciples in Mark 16:17 thus, “And these signs will follow those who believe: in My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues.” A Christian has authority over Satan and his cohorts in life. This is the reason why we must not live in fear because Jesus Christ has given us authority and power in His Name. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God had indeed given him authority over Satan and demons in life. The authority over Satan and demons is indeed found beneath the supreme Name of Jesus Christ in life forever.

Again, Apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians 2:5-6 thus, “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.” Therefore, it is divine grace that quickens a Christian to be alive in the Spirit of Christ Jesus in life. The grace of God has given us the privilege to sit with Jesus Christ in the heavenly places of God in life. Christians have been given the authority to reign and rule with Christ Jesus in the realm of the spirit in life forever.

The authority to command Satan and cast out demons has been given to a Christian in Christ Jesus. This is the reason why Apostle Paul said in Philippians 2:10-11 thus, “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, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” In fact, in the Name of Jesus Christ all powers in heaven, earth and in the abyss are therefore commanded to bow on their knees in life. A Christian has the authority in the Name of Jesus Christ over Satan and all his demons in life. Therefore, he is expected to rise and exercise his authority in the Name of Christ Jesus in life forever. Happy New Month!

Daily Tip: Jesus Christ has given a Christian authority over Satan and his demons in life. Therefore, he is expected to exercise his authority in the Name of Jesus Christ and dominate his life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world (1 John 4:4).
