Most Christians have no spiritual
authority, they are powerless against satan. They cannot stop
sinning. They cannot stop watching pornography, cannot stop lusting,
cannot resist temptation, cannot stop lying, cheating, fornicating.
They cannot overcome because they are walking in their own power, not
the power of the Holy Spirit.
Those who follow Jesus, under
guidance of the Holy Spirit, have the authority to overcome all
things. They have the authority to cast out satan and set the
captives free, but if they turn from Jesus and compromise with sin,
with other people and with the world, they lose their authority.
satan seduces the children of God to disobey Jesus, they become
powerless, lose their authority and are destroyed.
apostle James wrote in James 4:1-10. "1What is the source of
quarrels and conflicts among you? Is not the source your pleasures
that wage war in your members? 2You lust and do not have; so you
commit murder. You are envious and cannot obtain; so you fight and
quarrel. You do not have because you do not ask. 3You ask and do not
receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it
on your pleasures. 4You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship
with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to
be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. 5Or do you
think that the Scripture speaks to no purpose: “He jealously
desires the Spirit which He has made to dwell in us”? 6But He gives
a greater grace. Therefore it says, “GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD,
BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.” 7Submit therefore to God. Resist
the devil and he will flee from you. 8Draw near to God and He will
draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your
hearts, you double-minded. 9Be miserable and mourn and weep; let your
laughter be turned into mourning and your joy to gloom. 10Humble
yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you."
we purify ourselves of unrighteousness and worldliness, and submit
ourselves to Jesus, He will give us the authority and the power to
overcome sin, satan and the world.
Repent. Purify yourself
Submit to Jesus, obey His words, listen to and follow the guidance of
the Holy Spirit. Do not allow satan to seduce and disarm you through
compromise with sin, disobedience and worldliness. satan will try all
He can until the end to strip you of your power and authority, so
that he can destroy you.
Turn to Jesus. Repent from the heart. He
will accept you and empower you to overcome and stand in the evil
day. Stay with Jesus, in submission to Him, or you will be
Only those who overcome, will enter the kingdom
of heaven. Take heed of the words of Jesus in Revelation 2:4-7 ‘But
I have this against you, that you have left your first
love.5‘Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent
and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you and
will remove your lampstand out of its place—unless you repent.
7‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the
churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of
life which is in the Paradise of God.’
Are we doing the first
deeds? Are we submitted to Jesus and walking in His authority, in
obedience to Him? Are we overcoming?
May Jesus bless you.
