Understanding Authority of The Believer


Luke 10:19 I have given you authority EXOUSIA to trample on snakes and scorpions and over all the power DUNAMIS of the enemy;

AUTHORITY: (exousia)  – The rule of government that commands submission highest judicial control possible that can exert rule and dominance.

POWER: (dunamis) – The ability to do something. Miracle working power. 

Exousia or authority is the right to do it. 

The authority that Jesus gave the disciples was to be able to overcome the power – NOT AUTHORITY – of the enemy. The enemy rules by power, not by authority. 

Luke 9:1-2 When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.

Jesus had the level of authority that He exercised in the Gospels and was able to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit, doing many miracles because of:

 1. His relationship with the Father – They were one.

2 His level of submission to the Mission of the Father – constantly drew aside to spend time with the Father in the secret place (Hebrews 5:7,8)

Our authority will also come from our relationship with Jesus then through the commission of Jesus. 

Our relationship with God, what does it look like?

Service Starts 10:30am Sunday Morning

Christ In You

Many of us are walking far short of the fullness of Christ In You. I believe this is due to the lack of understanding the mystery. If we gain the understanding of this mystery, we will never be the same as we walk with a greater awareness of what He has done for us and provided for us.

Join us Sunday, May 26th @ 10:30am as we discover the mystery together.

People of His Presence

“And they shall be My people, and I will be their God; 39 and I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me always, for their own good, and for the good of their children after them. 40 “And I will make an everlasting covenant with them that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; and I will put the fear of Me in their hearts so that they will not turn away from Me. 41 “And I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will faithfully plant them in this land with all My heart and with all My soul.
