Living Under An Open Heaven Pt 3 – Receiving A Fresh Authority
RECEIVING A FRESH AUTHORITY
Jesus gave his disciples power against unclean spirits (Matt.10:1). In Matthew, Jesus preached with authority (Mk.1:22). Jesus gave us the power to become sons (Jn.1:12). Familiarity and fear kills God's power and authority in our lives.
As believers, we get our spiritual authority from:
1. The blood of Jesus: In 2Ki.3:26-27; Heb.9:11-28; Rev.12:11; 1Cor.1:28
2. The Holy Spirit: Ex.31:1-2; Lk.1:35; Acts 1:8; Isa.11:1-5; 2Cor.3:6
3. The Word of God: Jn.6:63; Heb.4:12
4. The name of Jesus: Jn.8:36, 14:13, 16:23-24
5. Prayer: 1Cor.2:4; 1Chron.4:9-10
In the day and time we are in, we need to walk in a fresh authority in Christ to be able to live in victory.
