Authority of the Believer - Part 6

We discussed yesterday that we have been seated with Christ in heavenly places. It is a place of authority. We are seated (spiritually) with Christ at the right hand of the Father. This means that we are seated far above all principality, power, might and dominion. We operate in the authority of Christ as His body on this earth. Glory to God! Colossians 2:12-15 says 'buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.' Remember what the Word says in Galatians 2:20? 'I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.' We just read in Colossians 2 verse 15 that Jesus has disarmed principalities and powers and made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it. So, if we have been crucified with Christ, and it's now Christ who lives in me, and He has triumphed over all demonic powers; and we have been raised up together in Christ and are seated with Him in heavenly places; then why can't we believe that we have the authority that has been given to Christ and that we can operate in this authority? It has been given to us by Jesus Christ Himself! It's all about knowing who you are in Christ! 1 Corinthians 6:17 says 'But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.' If that don't stir your soul, your spoon has fell out of your bowl! Glory to God! We are one spirit with the Lord Jesus Christ, and we have the authority of the resurrected Christ to go out into the world and cause every demon to flee in terror! We are blood bought children of the Most High God, and bless God, it is time we started to act like it!
