How To Take Authority Over The Devil

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.  Matthew 28:18

Christians are born with authority, but, unfortunately, many believers are still living under the fear of the enemy. The devil isn’t our focus – our mandate is to reveal the glory of our Father in the world. In doing so, we have been given the authority to get rid of anything that opposes our purpose.

.The devil is already defeated by our Lord, and all that we need to do is to enforce the victory. Jesus came into the world to demonstrate how to live as a child of God. He went about healing the sick, raising the dead, and doing a lot of marvelous works.

Health is the glory of God. Prosperity is the glory of God. Life is the glory of God. Righteousness is the glory of God. Our authority is to make sure we continue to have these values available both in our lives and in that of others. God, in His wisdom, knows that there is someone here on earth who doesn’t want us to be healthy, prosperous, righteous, to live, etc.

To counteract the schemes of the enemy, He made authority available. This is to make sure His saints manifest His glory in the world without any problem.

14 For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. Habakkuk 2:14

Could you imagine a life without sicknesses and diseases? A people without having to worry about any need? Well, it is possible! You don’t have to be confused as to how it’s going to be done. The Lord already made available what you need to have such a glorious life.

Take Authority By Using The Name Of Jesus Christ

17 Then the [e]seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.” 18 And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20 Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but [f]rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.” Luke 10:17-20

The authority to live a victorious godly life is in the name of Jesus Christ. All authority in heaven and on earth has been vested in Christ. Anyone who utilizes the name shall manifest the glory of God.

The word authority is derived from the Greek word exousia and it simply means permission.

In other words, we have been permitted both in heaven and the earth to bring into manifestation the glory of God in our lives and that of others. By using the name of Jesus Christ, you have permission from above to be healthy, prosperous, righteous, and above all, to live without dying. Yes, you read that right! Oh Lord – this is awesome!

For example, before Jesus came, men didn’t have the right to be healthy or to prosper. They were constantly under the siege of the enemy. Even now, we still find many under deplorable conditions because they have no idea that the Lord has set them free. Many shout the name of Jesus, but what makes the name potent is when you know why you are using it.

15 And the evil spirit answered and said, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?” 16 Then the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, [c]overpowered them, and prevailed against [d]them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. Acts 19:15-16

You cannot use the name of Jesus in vain or in ignorance. The devil is already aware of the authority the name carries. So for you to get any result with the name, you must, first of all, know why it carries such much power. Jesus died for our sins, and He is the first man who ever came back from the dead. This act alone qualified Him to have authority over everything. The name has the authority to set anybody free and to restore dignity to all people. Amen
