Authority to rule over your enemies – Part 1
No believer should allow himself to be subjected to slavery neither by Satan nor sin, because the moment we received Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, we are automatically free from their slavery.
We are no more slaves to Satan, no more slaves to sin, which empowers them to enslave us.
And as soon as we have authority over them, their weapons of warfare, such as sickness, affliction, poverty and barrenness shall no longer have effect upon us.
Our first parents, Adam and Eve had this authority and power, but they lost it through sin of disobedience.
However, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, there was restoration of that authority to those who accept Him as Lord and Saviour.
In Genesis 1:28 “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
The authority above was gained and lost by our foreparents through sin, but the emergence of our Lord Jesus Christ brought about its restoration to mankind.
Ephesians 4:8-12 says, “Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
9(Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:”
As Christ came into this world, He gave us gifts of authority, power, ministry, and through the receipt of these divine empowerment, the glory and authority lost by Adam in the Garden of Eden were restored.
On this premise, no genuine believer should be a slave or suffer any form of wickedness from the devil and his agents, for you are not under them anymore.
Now you know your right in the Lord, they should no longer torment you, as they did in the time past.
The reverse will be the case, as your tormentors will carry their load in shame this time, because you have known that you have authority to rule over them. As from today, as you finish reading this message, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven. Whatever you loose on earth shall be loose in heaven.
I don’t know those that are after you, but that was before, and now that you know what you have in the Lord, power will change hand.
You will no longer be under their subjection or under their torment; rather you will rule over them.
The Lord has given you power to tread upon all the powers of your enemies and nothing shall happen to you (Luke 10: 19).
So, whichever way they come, you will give them technical knockout, because of the authority you have.
Our Master, our Lord Jesus Christ has given us authority and as long as our He reigns, we shall reign with Him.
Romans 5:17 “For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.”
You shall reign through Christ, as long as you have given your life to Jesus, you shall not be under.
2 Timothy 2:12 “If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us.”
Honestly speaking, we shall reign with Him on earth, and in heaven and will never be a slave to sickness, affliction, demons and other agents of the devil again in Jesus name.
