Authority of the Believer - Part 4

Ephesians 1:19-23 says 'and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.' Notice where Christ is seated. Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father, FAR ABOVE ALL PRINCIPALITY AND POWER AND MIGHT AND DOMINION, AND EVERY NAME THAT IS NAMED, NOT ONLY IN THIS AGE BUT ALSO IN THAT WHICH IS TO COME. The Word also told us in verse 22 that God the Father had put all things under His feet, and that Christ is the head of the church, and that we are the body of Christ. So, let's break this down, shall we? If Christ is seated at the right hand of God the Father, far above every enemy and every name that is named; not only in this world but also in that which is to come. And, He is head of the church, which is us since we are the body of Christ. Then why are we not operating in this authority of Christ, our head? Simple answer just because of time. 2 reasons. First, it is not taught from the pulpit, and the reason it is not taught is because it is not understood. Second, it is not believed. There are some who believe this truth from the Word of God, but it is obvious that most do not either know or they simply do not believe they have the authority of Jesus Christ, and that is why we are doing so many teachings on this over the next few days. The body of Christ needs to wake up and learn who they are. You cannot separate the body from the head, and they must be one for them to operate to full capacity. The body only does what the head instructs, and they cannot function without each other. The head cannot function without the body, and the body cannot function without the head. The first part of Hosea 4:6 says 'My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.' You have heard me say that Satan doesn't care if you go to church. He is terrified of you becoming the church because you fully understand that you have been given authority over him and his little cowards. He is totally and utterly defeated, and the only power he has over you is the power YOU give him. It's time to lay the religious mess aside and abide in the Word of God and learn who you are in Christ so you can understand what you have been given because of Christ. Love you guys and we will discuss more tomorrow.
