The definition of authority is a power or right delegated or given. We, as believers, have been given this authority in Christ. 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.' Ephesians 2:6 says 'and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.' These verses show that Jesus Christ was not only raised from the dead, but was seated at the right hand of the Father, which is a position of power. The right hand of the throne of God is the center of power of the whole universe! We are going to be talking about the authority of the believer all this week. The body of Christ needs to know who they are and the authority that we have been given. We are the body of Christ, and Christ is the head. You cannot separate the head from the body. We are seated with Him in heavenly places. So, if we are seated with Him on the throne of power (positionally speaking), and Christ is the head and we are the body, then you should know that the authority that has been given to the resurrected Lord has been given to us as well! I am really excited to be teaching on this subject. It's a powerful revelation from the Holy Spirit, and we will look at some things that Kenneth Hagin wrote in his book, The Believer's Authority. I recommend that you get this book. Praise God for His word, and that we work from a place of victory!
