Hidden in Jesus, Hidden with Authority!
One of the central truths shared in the Freedom Fighter International Training Center curriculum is the spiritual truth of being hidden in Christ! Disciples of the Jesus need to understand the truths of being raised up with Christ and hidden in Him, resulting in a more victorious life. PART ONE, TWO & THREE we examined some basics of being in Christ. This part –PART FOUR we will examine the spiritual victorious reality that we have AUTHORITY as a result of being hidden in Christ! This is comforting to know.
In Ephesians 2:6 the Scripture tells us we have been raised into the Heavens. Then in Colossians 3:3 we are told that we are IN HIM! What is one of the blessings (see Ephesians 1:3) we have as a result of our heavenly position? We have authority. Jesus said He has all authority (see Matthew 28:18) and since we are in HIM now, we thereby have it too! He has graciously given us this authority to us. Jesus tells us in Luke 10:17-19 this truth:
“Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.” And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions,
BEHOLD I GIVE YOU THE AUTHORITY! CASE CLOSE. WE HAVE IT! Since this is true, I suggest we start using it over the spiritual enemies we have that seek our destruction. Verbalize the commands and tell fear, lust, anger, oppression, heaviness, sickness, death and witchcraft to go in Jesus name! Be persistent and watch the enemies GO as they submit to your authority that we possess in Jesus Christ our Lord!
