We’re building a
foundation for faith and every component is deliberate and necessary.Compromising with the components that go
into the foundation lead to serious problems later.
“But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith
loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with
Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made
us sit together in Heavenly places in Christ Jesus:” (Ephesians 2:4-6)

Christians have no understanding of the above verses of Scripture.
These verses reveal that all Born Again
Believers actually share a position of authority with Jesus.

This is a position of
This means that we are above Satan, first and foremost. Many
Believers wrongly believe that Satan has power over them. Not so,
according to the precious Holy written Word of God.
Here’s what Jesus
said about the Believer’s authority over Satan and demon powers.
“Behold, I give
unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions [symbolic of Satan and
demon powers], and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by
any means hurt you. (Unless you allow it.) Notwithstanding in this
rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice,
because your names are written in Heaven.” (Luke 10:19,20)
“And these signs
shall follow them that believe; In My Name shall they cast out devils
When we speak to them using Jesus’ Name, they
We must tell them to “go” from our family, finances,
bodies, etc., in Jesus’ Name.
We are not to ask God to do this for
us. God’s Word commands the Believer to resist Satan and demons.
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he
will flee from you.” (James 4:7)
The Believer is not
only seated above Satan and demon powers. The Believer is also seated
above the angels of God. Some do not believe
this based on the following verse of Scripture.
“For thou hast made
him [man] a little lower than the angels, and hast
crowned him with glory and honour.” (Psalm 8:5)
The Hebrew word for
“angels” in this verse is actually “Elohim.” Elohim is God’s
three-fold Name. Elohim is a reference to
the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
This verse actually says
that man has been made a little lower than the Trinity, not a little lower
than the angels. Possibly the translators were so scared off by this
powerful revelation, they did a little “’fraidy
The Born Again
Believer, although lower than the Trinity, is in fact seated in Heaven. This is a position of authority over Satan,
demons and even the angels of God.
When we tell the angels of God, respectfully, to “Go, in
Jesus’ Name, and cause the finances to come in.” they’ll do so. When
we tell them to “Go and protect our loved ones as they travel.” they will
do exactly that. (Psalm 91:11,12)
The above verses,
and many, many others, make clear the Believer’s elevated position of
authority in Christ. A strong understanding in this area always
results in strong, effective faith.
The Born Again
Believer in Christ is a new creation.
The Born Again Believer has
been made the righteousness of God.
The Born Again Believer has been
seated at God’s right hand in Heavenly places.
The Born Again
Believer has authority over Satan and demon powers.
The angels of God
respond to the Believer who speaks faith-filled words.
Believer’s high position of authority is the third Faith Building Block
that must be laid to develop strong faith.
