“[God] 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 2:5,6)
depressed? Are you tired of living? Do you feel stressed and
hopeless? Can’t seem to figure out what “life” is all about?
Are you physically ill? Do you have financial problems that plague
you endlessly? Possibly your children or other family members are so
“out of control” there seems to be no hope for them either.
tricked Adam, the “father” of the human race, into disobeying God in the
Garden. (Genesis 3) By doing so, Satan was able to strip man of his
God-given authority and folks have been going through “Hell on Earth” ever
But there’s Good News! Jesus came to the Earth in the form of a
man. As a “man” He took back the authority that Adam as a “man” gave
to Satan. (Philippians 2:6-8) A man gave it away, so only a man could legally take it back. That having
been said, Jesus has now delegated that authority to you but only IF He is
your Savior. (Matthew 28:18,19; Mark 16:15-20)
Now let me shift
gears for a moment. Some people are of the mistaken religious idea
that God is over Jesus, Jesus is over the angels, the angels are over Satan
and evil spirits, and Satan and his demons are over man. This is NOT
what the Bible teaches.
The Bible teaches
that God is over Jesus and Jesus is over men and women. (1Corinthians
11:3) Men and women are over the angels. (Psalm 103:20; Hebrews
1:14) Men, women and angels are over Satan and all evil spirits!
(Daniel 10:13; Luke 10:19; James 4:7)
Did you get
that? Man has been placed over angels and demons both!
As a Believer in
Jesus, you can absolutely use your authority in prayer to cause things to
change! (John ; )
However, if Jesus
is not yet your Savior, things will continue to be
“out of order” for you. You’ll not be able to exercise authority over
Satan and demon spirits. You’re not over any of them. They’re
“all over you.” (Acts 19:14-16)
So why not simply
say, “Jesus, You’re my choice. I desire to be seated above Satan and
all this trouble. I want to get over it!” (Romans
Now you know what I
meant when I said, “GET OVER IT!”
