WALKING IN JESUS AUTHORITY
“Speak these things, exhort and rebuke with all AUTHORITY, let no one despise you ( Titus 2:15).
As a CHRISTIAN we have been given the AUTHORITY OF JESUS, yet so many walk without his authority. The Christian has been given the AUTHORITY OF JESUS so that Satan will never be able to intimidate us. Many Christians are “intimidated” by the devil through fears, doubts, anxiety, weakness and sinfulness, and that is why Christianity has “ lost” some of it’s appeal and influence. It is time for the Apostolic Christians to WALK IN THE AUTHORITY OF JESUS.
As Apostolic Christians we must WALK IN THE AUTHORITY OF GOD. When we do this, it will make us:
1) MORE THAN A CONQUEROR Nothing will shake us or overcome us. (Matt 8:28-34) Demons were casted out and they asked for permission to go into the swine.
2) CHANGE THE SPIRITUAL ATMOSPHERE –We can change natural situations, through the supernatural. (Matt 8:26) The winds and sea was subject to JESUS authority.
3) BE HELD IN HIGH ESTEEM-People will admire how GOD uses us to take authority over the enemy. (Acts 3:10) In JESUS name the lame man received strength in his feet and ankle and was healed to the Glory of GOD
4) PEOPLE WILL LISTEN TO US-What we say will cause people to listen and respond to us. (Acts 22:2)
Even though Saul had been converted to Paul, his past followed him but because of his authority they listened to him.
5) PEOPLE WILL FOLLOW US- We will influence people to follow us as we follow CHRIST. (Mk 10:28)
Peter reiterated to JESUS, that they had forsaken all to follow HIM.
6) YOU WILL BE A STRONG LEADER-People will see authority and be in submission to it. (2 Sam2:4)
After Saul's death the people submitted to David as their new king, and David went boldly into Hebron.
7) HEALING WILL TAKE PLACE-Sickness and disease will be eradicated at his SPOKEN word. (Acts3:6)
Peter said silver and gold I don't have but in the name of JESUS get up and walk. And the man was healed immediately.
Apostolic Christians it's time to walk in JESUS AUTHORITY and take dominion over every principalitiy, power and ruler of darkness that has come against us. IF GOD BE FOR US WHO CAN BE AGAINST US.
