May 1, 2022:
As we submit ourselves under God’s authority and ordained biblical authority, also known as divine covering, then as “sons of God,” we have access to His delegated authority. Jesus gave us His authority to trample upon the enemy (Mark 1:21-22; Luke 4:36-37, 10:18-19; Ephesians 6:10-18). However, when authority is granted or imparted but not used, it is like possessing no authority! For example, a judge sitting in a courtroom has influence. But a judge mandating a legal sentence to a guilty criminal is exercising authority. As Christians, we might somewhat influence the world, but if we are not using God-given authority, we have no authority. Inactivated authority is no authority!
The purpose of operating in God’s designated authority is to allow the kingdom of God to manifest upon the earth (l Corinthians 3:9). We exercise this activated or sanctioned authority by speaking His Word, also known as rhema or logos, in the name of Jesus. God’s authority is released to accomplish His divine will (Luke 10:17). As we pray and speak in Christ’s stead, this exercised authority, or divine consent, transforms into dominion power or divine ability. That power is discharged and manifested with the purpose to establish and further advance the kingdom of God in this world (Mark 6:7; Luke 10-9).
