Y’all have a blessed Season for an AWESOME reason. We are ONE with Jesus! “For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in His sufferings in order that we may also share in His GLORY.”
By His grace we are OVERCOMERS! He was killed in the flesh (refusing to accept ‘wealth’ beyond reason in His temptations. Though the father of ALL lies could have been in his nature, just what he is known to do! Are you worthless, a loser, a failure? In faith and actuality – you are not! We are overcomes, Amen!) Jesus came back from the dead!
He was witnessed to be turned to pulp, hung on a tree and died!
He was THEN seen to walk, walk through closed/locked doors (and still had the holes in his feet, hands, side) Boy! We ‘think’ we have seen miracles? These we have THE authority, faith and gift to perform! John 14:12 says CLEARLY when Jesus was observed simply doing The Will of His Father: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”
And we see: 2 Kings 4:34-35 “Then he got on the bed and lay on the boy, mouth to mouth, eyes to eyes, hands to hands. As he stretched himself out on him, the boy’s body grew warm. Elisha turned away and walked back and forth in the room and then got on the bed and stretched out on him once more. The boy sneezed seven times and opened his eyes.”
And we may wonder why Paul ‘lay’ on the man that fell from the upper window to his ‘death’: “Seated in a window was a young man named Eutychus, who was sinking into a deep sleep as Paul talked on and on. When he was sound asleep, he fell to the ground from the third story and was picked up dead. Paul went down, threw himself on the young man and put his arms around him. “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “He’s alive!” Then he went upstairs again and broke bread and ate. After talking until daylight, he left. The people took the young man home alive and were greatly comforted.” Acts 20:9-12
But, we are told not to be hasty: “Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands, and do not share in the sins of others. Keep yourself pure.”
1 Timothy 5:22
We have been given authority, Jesus taught: “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, Matthew 28:18.
We can further read and learn:
We have been given AUTHORITY by and through Jesus! He came and He subdued every contrary spirit/demon and was given the ultimate Authority over ALL… “Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in Heaven and on Earth and under the Earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the GLORY of God The Father.”
