RECOGNIZING OUR AUTHORITY IN HIS NAME
And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus
There’s so much that we can do when we take advantage
of our authority and dominion in Christ. Too many
Christians have been too quiet about many things,
living as though they’re victims in life; no! Take charge; you’re in office.
You’re seated with Christ in the place of power, in the
position of authority; you have His dominion; it’s yours
by right; so, use it! Make things right in your life, in your home,
in your ministry, job, business, city, nation, etc., using the Name of Jesus.
That Name is greater than every government, or institution,
name or title that could be conferred, both in this world and in the world to come.
Jesus Christ is LORD over all, and the God of all flesh.
With this knowledge, you can, and should, put a stop to the uprisings,
wars, epidemics, wickedness, perils, and havocs the devil
concocts and attempts to wreak around the world.
Putting a stop to these things is simple:
Use the authority and power of His Name in prayer!
The Message translation gives an excellent rendering of
Ephesians 1:20-22. It says, “…God raised him from death
and set him on a throne in deep heaven, in charge
of running the universe, everything
from galaxies to governments, no name and no power
exempt from his rule. And not just for the time being,
but forever. He is in charge of it all, has the final word
on everything….” This is extraordinary.
However, He’s not in charge and ruling if you do
nothing. The way He runs the earth and sets things
in order is through us, the Church. We’re His seed,
prolonging His days; He rules through us. When you
speak, it’s Him speaking. When you take action against
the forces of darkness and wickedness in your nation,
that’s Him taking an action.
Satan has no chance if you’d recognise and take
advantage of your position and ability in Christ—the
glory and power you wield in His Name! Even now,
use that authority! Declare in the Name of Jesus, the
specific changes you want in any area of your life and
you’ll have a testimony. Blessed be God!
I’m seated with Christ in heavenly places, far above
all the hardships, troubles, perils and corrupting
influences in the world. I dominate and triumph over
circumstances today. Christ reigns and rules through
me; His dominion and righteousness are expressed
through me. Blessed be His Name forever.
Ephesians 2:5-6 AMPC; Philippians 2:9-10
