KEY SCRIPTURE: Luke 10:19 KJV” Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you”.
Every believer in Jesus who has been born again has absolute authority over the devil and his demons. We have the authority to cast them out. Now authority is the right to command and be obeyed. Power is the ability to act or effect a change. Every Christian has inherited the authority and power of our Lord Jesus. The Christian is an extension of Jesus on the earth. We are on this earth in His name. This is the reason when Jesus encountered Saul on the road to Damascus, He said to Saul (later became Paul), why are you persecuting me?
We are His representatives. The very Spirit or the anointing that lived in Him, and gave Him the ability to function on the earth, now resides in the Christian. (Col 1:26,27).
The power of the devil is darkness. The power that functions in the believer is light. Light will forever dominate darkness (this is the reason the Christian should never entertain any form of sin or unbelieve in his life) John 1:5 KJV” And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not”. Note: Any moment a Christian fear the devil and any of his works, he cast a blanket of darkness on himself and the light in him, or he introduces darkness into his life. This gives the devil an easy access to the life of the Christian to do whatever he wishes.
The Christian is God’s mouth piece on the earth. The Lord Jesus has bound Himself with His words to honor and bring to pass any demand the Christian makes in His name. John 14:13 KJV “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son”. We do not fight with demons, we cast them out. (Mark 16:17) Stop crying over any evil works of demons against you and rather stop them with the authority in you.
I am the Lord’s mouth piece on the earth. I am Light in this earth. I bear the name of Christ and have the right to use His name. I have absolute authority over Satan and his demons No devil can stop or resist my authority.
Matthew 28:18 KJV “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.”
March 16:15 KJV” And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;”
