All Authority

Matthew chapter 28 Jesus spoke:

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen!

We have been given the power and authority to use the name of Jesus Christ to minister life, heal, and restore.  In addition, we have been given The Holy Spirit to lead and guide us in all manner.  Let us no longer resist HIS Divine Intent but rather let us embrace HIS Words concerning our mandate to minister life to others.  Our every word and deed should glorify FATHER as we become fully mature in HIS Divine Intent of Love.

Romans 8: 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

Is there any exception to HIS “all authority”?  Is there a sickness, disease, or other infirmity above HIS “all authority”?  A resounding NO!  The traditions and worldly motives of men have led us to believe that  pharmaceuticals are the best avenue to take in order to recover from sickness and disease.  We are bombarded with commercials on a daily basis designed to convince us to buy and consume their products.  Each of us must decide what path we take to wholeness.  If we are weak in faith then let us focus on building our faith by reading and studying HIS Word until we are more confident that HIS power and authority is greater than a drug.  You will know when that day has arrived.  I am not advocating taking action against your doctor’s orders but instead pursue life, healing, and restoration so your doctor will be able to attest  to the miracle of healing.

In Mark chapter 16 Jesus spoke on five areas of authority and power :

“And these signs will follow those who believe:

1  In My name they will cast out demons;

2  they will speak with new tongues;

3  they will take up serpents;

4  if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them;

5  they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

These five miraculous manifestations are to take place as we fully embrace the authority IN HIS NAME.  Satan holds men in bondage and Jesus sets men free of that bondage.  Jesus clearly stated in John chapter 10:

9 “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.

10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

The Beloved Disciple wrote by THE SPIRIT in 1 John chapter 3:

7 Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous.

8 He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

It is time for us to destroy the works of the devil by fully embracing the Authority of Jesus Christ.  We can dance around this mandate but it does not change the Truth contained in Jesus’ declaration.  Let us become passionate in our pursuit of HIS Fullness and no longer be tossed to and fro by men’s alternative doctrines.  Let us not be looked at as the generation of passivity, lukewarm attitudes, and fruitlessness.  Fast in whatever area that requires the breaking down of strongholds which are preventing you from ascending higher.  Let us prepare now to go forth in “All Authority” as mandated by our Elder Brother!
