As Christians, understanding the power that we carry is all about understanding our positioning and exercising our authority. When we accepted Jesus the old us became dead to sin. Ephesians 2:6 further explains that we have been resurrected with Christ and are seated at the right hand of the Father with Christ. We may be walking around on earth physically but our Spirits are with Christ and He in us! In Kingdom positioning, the right hand position is a position of authority. This is mirrored in this world with Kings and Queens. By being seated with Christ, we occupy the same position of authority with Him. While Jesus is seated, He has given us His 'power of attorney', His full authorization to act on His behalf while we're still (physically) on earth! When the body of Christ comes to understand this we can accomplish anything! Moving mountains? (both literal and Kingdoms) NOTHING! Raising the dead? NOTHING! Calming the storm? CHILD'S PLAY! It is this authority that Jesus has imparted to us that heals the sick. Jesus never prayed "Oh please Father, heal this man". He took authority and COMMANDED the condition to be gone - and in doing so gave the example of how we are to 'pray' for healing. Jesus never said "Oh please Father please, deliver this man from demons" No. He took authority over the demonic and COMMANDED it out! I believe that when Jesus said, "He who is not with Me is against Me" can be applied to ALL things, that basically He was saying 'If its not of God, it's from the other side'.
It is time for the body to realize the individual and corporate power that we carry around with us every day - and start using it the way that Christ intended. WE WERE NOT BORN AGAIN TO BACK DOWN...WE WERE BORN AGAIN TO SMACK DOWN!
~ You are blessed!
