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!
Reality of Gods, Demons & Idols
In the Torah, Moses, warned the people of God (and by extension all of humanity), that the one true and living God demands loyalty. In Exodus 20 Moses warns:
“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
“You shall have no other gods before Me.
“You shall not make for yourself a carved image-any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God…”
Moses wrote of “other gods.” Who are these other gods? These are demonic spirits cloaking themselves as gods. There is but one God (see Deuteronomy 6:4 for the declaration). There is no other (Isaiah 43:10-11).
The apostle Paul, in the New Testament, provides a very clear connection with idolatry (the false worship of other gods and demons) and spiritual forces. He writes in 1 Corinthians 10:
“What am I saying then? That an idol is anything, or what is offered to idols is anything? Rather, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons.”
See the connection? When the gentiles were sacrificing to idols, they were in reality sacrificing unto demons. There’s only two powers at work –God’s power and the powers of darkness. In the exorcism ministry, we often come across demons named after gods: Baal, Moloch, Odin and there are so many others. Recently, I encountered Poseidon (picture of him above). He’s a god of water, seas and earthquakes. When I confronted him, he cloaked himself as a powerful being (like a god) but when I brought my cross of deliverance. He quickly submitted to the superior power –the powers of the God-man, the Lord Jesus Christ. Our great God –the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit cannot be outdone. He stands alone as Creator of all things. We ought to worship Him and Him alone! Amen!
A witchcraft coven in the Houston, Texas, area targeted our seminar last night and they were able to disturb and spiritually assault a handful of disciples. It occurred when a lady testified of her powerful deliverance from demonic forces the night before. She mentioned a name of a spirit — Leviathan– that she was set free from and immediately the fire alarms and strobes went off in the spacious hotel ballroom. Moreover, as the piercing sound of the alarm invaded the room several of the disciples came under direct attack.
Later on, after the seminar, we discovered, as we were battling Leviathan within a young lady, that a group of demonic spirits had been specifically sent to our seminar to hinder us. Sure, it was a distraction however we continued on with the ministry and many souls were powerfully freed by the Lord Jesus Christ! There’s much more to this story but suffice to say –the enemy tried to destroy the meeting but we ended up crushing him in the name of our great God!
After the spiritual disturbance, we were able to continue on with the ministry of the gospel. The very first lady, I reached out to was Mary (pictured with me above with my little girl). She had shared earlier in the evening that she had been hearing 3 different voices for more then 50+ years! She tried medication. It didn’t work. She tried to ignore the voices. It didn’t work. She tried to seek the counsel of the church. That didn’t work. She came to our seminar. That worked!
Obviously, we are not able to help everyone in every situation however we do specialize in assisting those with deeper demonic issues and by God’s grace we have witnessed tens of thousands of lives changed as a result. I’m so glad Mary decided to attend our meeting as we were able to resolve her issues and bring an end to the 50+ years of torture.
Who were these 3 voices she kept on hearing constantly? One was her grandfather. A soul invader. He surfaced. We discovered he was a warlock. He (and the demons attached to him) was removed by the power of God. The second voice was a good dissociative identity from another individual. They were guided to God for healing. The last voice a little girl –another dissociative identity. It was a broken heart part. It was a soul part of Mary that had been terribly abused and neglected. I was able to communicate with her and guide her to Jesus for deep healing.
As this little girl surfaced, my little girl, Sahara (age 7) was able to minister to this little heart part and healed this little girl. Not only am I reaching many for Jesus but I’m training my three children in the gospel ministry and allowing them hands on training. I’m raising up many disciples of Jesus throughout the world through our Freedom Fighter International Training Center and our other mission extensions. What an honor it is to serve King Jesus!
That little heart part was able to SEE the risen Savior and was comforted by His love and care. I then proceeded to drive out all of these tormenting voices from the demons and this evil soul invader and she was miraculously healed. In fact, she looked so dark and gloomy but afterwards looked so fill of light and joy! It was astounding to witness. She also shared that for the very first time in ALL of her life she could no longer hear the voices. She was powerfully delivered by the loving Jesus!
52 YEARS of TORMENT –RESOLVED BY JESUS WITHIN MINUTES! I just feel bad that this woman suffered for all of these decades. It’s wrong. She should not have suffered all of these years someone should have been able to intervene and offer hope and deliverance. However, nobody did. NOBODY! Well, by God’s power we were there and intervened!
Epigenetics & Ancestral Transmitted Evils
The fascinating topic Epigenetics (which is “information” that sits above the genome that directs the programming of DNA) needs to be explored and investigated as it relates to generational curses, demons and other spiritual realities that could be passed down from one generation to the next. Recently, someone in the UK sent me an intriguing article on this subject. Allow me to paste a portion of the article to you, then share a few thoughts of my own:
“Epigenetics reveals that not only do we pass along the DNA sequence to our children, but we also pass along the epigenetic instructions to them. In other words, information can be inherited and transmitted through generations. In an experiment on ‘transgenerational epigenetic inheritance’, researchers at Emory University, trained mice to fear a fruity odor by pairing it with a mild electric shock to the foot. Ten days later, the mice were allowed to mate. Incredibly, their pups feared the odor even without having encountered the smell before. But even more fascinating is that the offspring of those pups – the grandchildren – were born with the same specific memory. We see the mice study apply to humans. One example were the attacks of 9/11. Among the thousands of people directly exposed to the attack were 1,700 pregnant women. Some of these women developed symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Their children reacted with high levels of fear and stress around loud noises, unfamiliar people, or new foods. It seems the infants inherited the nightmare that their mothers experienced on that day.”
Medical science points to the reality of what we as disciples of Jesus would consider as ancestral transmitted evil. The researchers discovered that “information” can be transmitted through the generations. Well, obviously, some of that information being passed down would be considered evil. Not everything your ancestors experienced or encountered was good. Much of their lives dealt with evil of all sorts. That evil is transmitted from one generation to the next.
Every human being, on this planet, has ancestral transmitted evils stored within their lives. Exodus 20 and Numbers 14, clearly teach, among many other passages, of these realities. So, these evils must be driven out of our lives. Is it possible? Yes, all things are possible with God. The shed blood of Christ can cleanse us from all unrighteousness and evil (1 John 1:9). Our spirit nature immediately is reborn when we apply the blood of Christ upon our lives. The spirit nature raises to be with Christ and generational evils cannot affect us in the spirit from that point forward.
However, our bodies and souls (as we are tripartite beings with spirit, soul and body) need the continuing and daily work of Jesus which includes all elements of sanctification including the renunciation of ancestral evil. Generational evils leave the spirit nature once we are born again in Christ but now resides in our body and soul natures. Demons hold onto spiritual legal rights and that includes ancestral evils. These rights need to be removed so we can become spiritually cleaner and freer. How? Only one power is able –the power of the shed blood of Jesus (Revelation 20 tells us we have defeated Satan by the blood of the lamb). Consider these truths and start dealing with the ancestral transmitted evils in your life today.

One of the foundational truths we focus on in our 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 hidden in Christ, resulting in a more victorious life. PART ONE we examined some basics of being in Christ. This part — Part II will examine what blessings and benefits we possess as a result of this spiritual truth and reality. I believe understanding these truths will empower you to be a more victorious disciple in Christ!
The apostle Paul taught the church, more then two-thousand years ago, that we have been blessed with EVERY spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. In Ephesians 1:3 the Scripture is clear: “…who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.”
What is some of the blessings we have by virtue of who we are in Christ? We have all of His love, peace, joy, strength, provision, and on and on I could go. However, today, I want to focus on the blessing of VICTORY! That’s one of the blessings we have in Christ. He is “far above” all demonic powers (see Ephesians 1) so as a result of being IN HIM –we are ALSO far above all the dark forces of Satan.
Moreover, we who are in Christ Jesus are also in a continual state of victory –forevermore. The Scripture is clear on this. In 2 Corinthians 2:10 the apostle Paul encourages us in this truth for all time: “Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ.”
We are winners, not losers. We are victors in the resurrected Son of God! Amen! Be encouraged my brothers and sisters, we win with Jesus for we are IN HIM!
So, to recap:
-When we are born-again, the Holy Spirit invades our spirit nature and we become alive.
-Immediately, God the Father, takes our spirit nature and transports it to the heavenly places.
-Once we are in the heavenly places, God places us in His Son. We are now hidden in Him!
-By virtue of being in Him we are blessed with EVERY spiritual blessing, including victory!
