The authority that God gives the believer.
We want this opportunity to share one more glorious word, of course! the word of Jesus Christ, which is the only source of life, grace, anointing, authority and power.
The Word of God in Ephesians chapter 6, makes us a tremendous revelation, coming through the servant of God, Apostle Paul, a disciple of Jesus Christ, just like you and me are the well is in Ephesians 6:10-18: Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may stand against the wiles of the devil, because it is not against flesh and blood that we wrestle, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand firm, then, having your loins girt about with truth, and the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace Above all, taking the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all fiery darts of the wicked.
Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God, with all prayer and supplication praying at all times in the Spirit, and for the same purpose, watching with all perseverance and supplication for all saints .
Dear brother, the armor of God is something that can not miss in our life lacked armor of God, also lacked grace, anointing, authority, power. This armor enables us to face all the forces of evil and come out winners.
The apostle Paul makes it clear in this text that we have to fight against flesh and blood, referring to natural situations of the visible world, the everyday life. Our fight is against powers, principalities, spiritual forces, that is, against malignant well-structured organizations, governments spiritual evil, which dwell in the heavenly realms. This is our big fight!
In verso16 have: embraçando especially the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
My Dear, the shield of faith is what gives you the authority and capacity to be a worker in the Lord's Harvest. If you want to be such, must embraçar the shield of faith. Who has faith has confidence and who have confidence, have confidence in something or someone. Our source of life and trust must be exclusively reveals to us what the Word of God, based on what is written: And this is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith. (I John 5:4 b) E They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death. (Rev.12: 11) giving credibility to the Word of Christ above life itself and their feelings, so the victory is determined.
The Bible tells us that all the works of evil will fall, will be held, prostrate and embarrassed in front of you when the shield of faith is embraçado. What shell is that? is not visible but invisible, is an interior design, is the unconditional credit to the word of Jesus Christ. As it is written: A thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand at thy right: thou shalt not be reached. No evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. Why shall give his angels orders concerning thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. (Psalm 91:7,10-11)
The Lord is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand. By day the sun shall not smite thee, nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. (Psalm 121:5-7). Anyway, it's your confidence that the Lord will guide the path of justice.
They can not simply be memorized words and repeated words are experienced, motivated and credibilizadas, in which you bet life itself. This is the shield of faith. There sorcery, witchcraft, the Mandingo, the satanic prayers, pests, it all falls apart when it encounters resistance as your shield of faith, with it erases all the fiery darts of the wicked.
The great truth is that God by revealing His word and our credibility to it, makes us very special beings, unbeatable, because Scripture reveals that Greater is He that is with us than what is in the world, imagine what glory Tues the Holy Spirit dwelling together with our spirit, in the same tent! That's great glory!
God gave us all the features and attributes necessary to win, which is why in Revelation, He only refers exclusively to the winner: the winner, I will give him that to eat of the tree of life which is in the paradise God, the winner not be hurt of the second death, the winner, I will give you the hidden manna, the winner, who hold to the end my works, I will give authority over the nations, the winner shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot his name from the book of life, the winner will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, the winner, I will give him sit with me on my throne, as well as I overcame and sat down with my Father in his throne. Anyway, it would win, to win it, to win it ..... God only deals with winners.
God does not admit defeat, losers, people crying in the corners with self-pity. This is an abomination to the Lord, for He has enabled us to win and we have to build trust in His word. When we doubt, He ceases to be our friend and happens to be our opponent.
It was for this word that Christ died and rose again. Stripped of His glory and inherited sit on the throne of Almighty God.
Behold there the shield of faith: the authority that the believer has is fantastic, is phenomenal, so Jesus will not deal with losers, or is Come ye blessed of my father, or is depart from me into the eternal fire. There is half victory in the kingdom of God: you are either a winner or a loser you are. Nobody will win consolation prizes of Jesus.
Therefore, the believer has authority because the word gives you authority. He's anointing, grace, deliverance, power. In Luke 10:19, the Lord said, Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over the power of the enemy: and nothing absolutely hurt you.
We know that snakes are not snakes, but the satanic symbol, the representation of evil, as we see in Revelation 12:9 ... that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan.
You see, God gives us authority to trample, to subdue, to undo, to counteract the forces of hell. What a glorious thing, that's wonderful!
In Matthew 10:8, Jesus calls his disciples and said: Go, heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. If Jesus commands cure diseases is because the disease has no power over your life and can not obstruct your path; cast out devils, well, Jesus is giving full authority over the evil. What a tremendous thing! What God has made man's life, and for that the devil did not count, that Jesus Christ suffered on the cross for man, and that also gave him authority to trample on the head of darkness, once under her feet. That really shook the kingdom of Satan.
In I John 3:8 .... In this was manifested the Son of God to destroy the works of the devil. You are a child of God? Back in John 1:12 says: But as many as received him to them gave he power to become the sons of God. We are children of God, we have to wear the shirt and defy the darkness and also illnesses. Cancer has power over the world, not the church of Jesus Christ.
When Jesus gave his disciples to go, send them only to His word that His disciples authority has no need to take any object. Like for example, pink, laces, wooden cross, shoes. The valiant raise the shield of faith with only words of Jesus Christ, are not idolaters; leading exclusively the word. The Apostles Paul, Peter, James, John, men who were beheaded and gave blood to water the Gospel, wore only words.
The word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any sword is two-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12).
The sword of the Spirit of God is the word, and this is what God has, only with His own word that has to be deposited in us, that God would tell us.
Jesus manifested in Revelation with the sharp two-edged sword in His mouth, which is His own word.
He says in Luke 10:18 - I saw Satan fall from heaven like lightning. The church started in grace, anointing, authority, power.
How is your authority? Are you afraid of sorcery, witchcraft? So you do not know Jesus Christ. You need to know Him. Are you afraid of Mandingo, afraid that someone put your name at the mouth of sapo? Are you afraid to throw your name in a waterfall? So you do not know the God of the Bible.
What is your fear, what is your fear? Believer scared! That? Yet emerged in the universe something that makes a believer to fear, because God's Word, that yes, it is powerful and will not return void, but will do what he pleases. Who is fit in every word has anointing, grace, authority, power, revelation. Know where to walk and go where the Lord Jesus commands.
I stress to you, you have to have authority. The only way to get the authority is to have the word, is to receive the revelation of Jesus Christ that is unique in the word, receive the anointing is the time that comes with the knowledge of the word, the more you know God, the more you is perfect for work, He pours more anointing upon you. Then God will send you to see when he presented himself as a workman approved, that does not have to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth and who is able to dethrone the concepts and machinations of false teachers that are invading society; opened a lot of biroscas? Call church.
Where is your authority? Where's the grace? Where is the anointing? If you do not have them is because you are not taking the word.
Jesus came against the Sadducees, the Pharisees, revered men in the squares, the streets, the councils, the nation of Israel, considered most holy, and said: Woe to you? hypocrites, false, woe to you because strain at a gnat and swallow a camel
Who has the word has authority. Who has the word has power over all evil. And you're still wasting your time in places that are said church? Between there and hears the word out every day the same way he entered, without receiving the message without receiving a virtue? Because you cowers before the glory revealed in the Bible? Because you will not listen to God's Spirit when He says in Ephesians 5:14 Awake, O sleeper, and raises you from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. Why do not you ask the Lord for the power of His revealed word?
Do not sit back and not even acovarde before lying words that say that God's power is limited to a past, that God not more resurrects the dead, no longer heals the sick, casts out no more demons, no longer distributes Spiritual Gifts and builds more than the talents of tongues. Do not accept being a coward! Wield the word of truth! God is the same yesterday, today, and forever will be.
As it is written: Jesus Christ, traced the ballot that was against us. Today we are restored, built, healed, and He tells us to destroy the works of the devil. Among this army! Accept the invitation of the Holy Spirit. Many are called but few are chosen. Do not want to be among the many, but among the few, for spacious and wide is the gate that leads to destruction, and narrow is the narrow path that leads to life.
God did not have the 32mil of Gideon, but with the 300. Be among the few brave and courageous!
If you do not have the courage to confront and challenge the devil has no courage to proclaim that the path of the just is as the shining light that will shine more and more unto the perfect day, then, it is questionable that you are God's Church Vivo.
If the Rapture sounded today, you feel the witnessing of the Holy Spirit you leave or you live a self-suggestion that will let you down in the moment of truth?
Are you willing to be faithful unto death, to receive the Crown of Life? How will its authority in the Gospel? How is your walk with Christ?
Jesus calls you to a war and gives you all the tools, so He only comes with the winners. If you go into this battle, know that Jesus calls you and awaits you!
