We’ve been looking at our spiritual authority and I want to ask this question: why should we be interested in spiritual authority and what do we do with it?
The first and foremost reason we should be interested in spiritual authority is because God has it for us and whatever He has for us we should want and pursue.
Secondly, we should not only be interested in spiritual authority but we absolutely need it to function successfully on planet earth. We need spiritual weapons to fight the warfare we’re in because we’re not fighting against flesh and blood. We’re fighting against the evil unseen forces in the world. We can’t fight spiritual battles with natural means. We need God’s supernatural weapons that will bring victory.
Even in the medical field, there are no answers for some sicknesses and diseases. In the meteorological field, man doesn’t have all the answers. Science doesn’t have all the answers. BUT – God has all the answers and He is faithful to show us how to overcome all the attacks of the enemy. And He’s given us the tools to do it.
Philippians 2:9 (KJV) 9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
Psalm 138:2b (KJV) 2 … for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.
Notice that the name of Jesus is above every name that is named – above every sickness, disease, addiction, problem, etc. And not only that, God has magnified His Word above His name! Wow! This is awesome!
God’s Word and His name will overcome all that the enemy throws at us. We are so blessed above all the people on the earth but sadly, most don’t even know it. And I’m including Christians in this.
Brothers and sisters, we need to learn how to use our spiritual weapons to overcome the evil in this world and do great exploits for the Lord. We need to rise up and be the Glorious Church that is ready for the Lord Jesus’ return. We have a work to do, so let’s do it!
Stay tuned; there’s more to come.

Mark 11:23-24 (KJV) 23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Ephesians 6:10-18 (KJV) 10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Deuteronomy 28:1-14 (KJV)
Luke 19:13b (KJV) 13 … Occupy till I come.
