Mark 16:15-18 (KJV) 15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Matthew 18:18 (KJV) 18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Jesus has given us power and authority over all the power of the enemy to bind him and his evil cohorts. But we are the ones who have to do it by His power. We can’t sit idly by and wait for God to do what He has told us to do.
We have authority to bind those things that are not approved by Heaven and loose the things that are approved. That means we can bind sickness and disease and command it to leave us. And then we can loose the healing power of God and command healing to manifest itself in our bodies! Praise the Lord of Glory! We can win in every situation and circumstance.
And then there’s Mark 11:22-24:
22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
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.
Jesus is saying that if we walk in the God-kind of faith, we can speak to the mountains/problems in our lives and command them to be removed. And then He goes on to say that when we pray we are to believe that we receive right then what we have prayed, not to wait for the manifestation but to actually believe that we have it when we pray in faith. Wow! That’s so awesome I don’t even have words to fully express it!
How can this happen? It’s because God has given us power and authority to do this in the Name of Jesus. But, as I’ve said before, He has already done His part and now we have to do our part if we want to get our desired results.
Sadly, many Christians, don’t even believe this, let alone actually do it. They live a defeated life of frustration, anxiety, and depression just waiting for the Rapture because they don’t know that there’s so much more to experience in the Lord while we’re on planet earth. They have bought into lies of the devil and are not any better off than their unsaved neighbors except they’re saved. At least they have that much!
But that’s not us! We’re overcomers and we win because we are going to walk in our spiritual authority and be victorious!
