I Prayed have prayed
Father all authority comes from You, and we thank You today for an understanding of who we are because of You.

“I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.” (Luke 10:19 NIV)

There is much misunderstanding of spiritual authority in the Church today. Due to sin and compromise, we have lost sight of what true authority looks like and how it works.” (Wanda Alger, from her article Understanding Spiritual Authority May Be the Key We Are Missing).

Everything Begins in God

The key to unlocking the door to your spiritual authority is to remember that everything begins in God, whether in the heavenly realm or upon the earth, visible or invisible, every order of justice and every level of authority, be it kingdoms, or governments, or principalities, or jurisdictions, all things were created by Him. What empowers darkness is what we believe about ourselves. He is the initiator of all things, therefore, everything finds its relevance and its true pattern in Him. The full measure of everything God has in mind for man indwells in Him.

In the economy of God, when Jesus died, we died. God saw us in Christ, in His death and resurrection, before we saw ourselves there. He declared our co-resurrection with Christ. As much as we were co-included in His death, we are co-included in His resurrection. We are also elevated in His ascension to be equally present in the throne room of the heavenly realm, where we are co-seated with Him in His executive authority. We are fully represented in Christ Jesus.

Decree with Us:

“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4 NIV)

“What, then, shall we say in response to theses things? If God is for us who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31 NIV)

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” (Romans 8:37 NIV)

“And these signs shall follow them that believe: In My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” (Mark 16:17-18 KJV) (Photo via Pixabay)

“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of Me, saith the Lord.” (Isaiah 54:17 KJV)

Hey, how come I use my authority over natural disasters to send and stop storms since Agnes. I have sent thousands of disasters over the years to warn people that God loves you and stop being stupid- come back to the Lord He wants you to be blessed and enjoy His blessings. If I am doing the work of the Lord in proclaiming Him as Lord to people around me, how come 2 billion believers are not stopping this virus and going going out to met the needs of the masses like me. I am alone in meeting the needs of the broken people that I see and using the authority that God has given me. Where are the Christians if there is 2 billion of them???????
Is thee something wrong that they want to go the lake of fire that badly?!!!!When you use that authority it is like Jesus is directly in the picture and things get done. Use your authority and get rid of this virus once and for all.

Exodus 25:1-27:19 when the LORD spoke to Moses and telling him to tell His children , give your possessions and your heart . Laying our idols down . Coming back to God with our whole heart . Furnishing the tabernacle . A dwelling place for Him ! Isn’t it interesting that the word Corona is found in the Torah . When Moses came out with the ten commandments and his face shone like the sun . Ray’s of light .That this time of passover reminding us of what God has done in the past for His people in Israel . We are His people too ! His royal priesthood that we have obtained mercy . How in the bible there is a thing called Mishna ,a time to reflect. Hebrew for the Torah . God’s instructions to make the tabernacle and its furnishings and collect gifts to build . He us building the body of Christ . A place where He can dwell ! A time where God is saying to His people , come back to Me with your whole heart . I believe what God is saying in this hour ,
“Return to Me My people ,bring Me an offering . From everyone who gives it willingly with his heart you shall take My offering . ” He wants to pour out His Spirit on all flesh ! He is preparing us for such an outpouring of His Spirit! Opening the airwaves to preach to the unchurched , the hurting , the dieing in spirit. He is coming back for a church without spot or wrinkle . He is cleaning us up and preparing the bride for the Groom ! The collective house of worship ! Thank you Jesus ! Praise God in this hour , we look up because our redemption draws near !
That we do not deny His voice in this hour
Hebrews 12:25 See that you do not refuse Him who speaks . For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth , much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven . We have royal blood running through our veins! He cannot deny His own ! He is a jealous God and He loves us . He has set the diamond ring in the sky and whoever receives that ring is counted in the Royal Wedding !

The truth is we can do nothing that is blessed by God without Him. We can express this truth simply by substituting the word “pride” and “proud” by the word “thankful” in our everyday speech. It is true that we are “thankful” for our children’s good works and “thankful” for our President now, etc. It makes a difference to God. He hates pride. Words mean things.

According to Eph 3:20; Col 1:29; 1 Cor 2:9, the limit of the functioning and operating of God’s Spirit in and power through us is “according to the power that works in us” (Eph 3:20b). Paul put it this way in Col 1:29, “To this end I also labor, striving (work very hard) according to His working within me…” to accomplish the task that is placed upon him (you and me, also). We can do all things through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior who gives us the strength. God help all of us to see that we can indeed do things that are “above and beyond us” through Your power that dwells within us. Amen!
