Authority of Heaven is Within Reach

HandReaching3Jesus said, “The Kingdom has come upon you.” God’s authority and power over sickness and disease has come upon your physical body, here, now, on earth. Jesus said the Kingdom of heaven is at hand because the authority and power is within reach! Everything in heaven displays God’s authority and power and that same authority and power can be displayed on the earth. (Lk.11:20) —Kathy

Kingdom of God in Evidence

(Kathy)  As I searched the scriptures, I found the Kingdom of God (or Kingdom of Heaven) could refer to three things: 1) The place where God dwells and reigns eternally, 2) God’s AUTHORITY & POWER ruling on earth, and 3) the company of people who have submitted their lives to God’s authority, both now and eternally.  Jesus preached and emphasized the second aspect, God’s AUTHORITY and POWER ruling on earth.  That is why He said to some as He healed them, “The Kingdom has come upon you.”  The Kingdom of God is in evidence wherever God’s AUTHORITY and POWER are manifested on earth.

Under Authority

(Sam Brassfield) — David was under authority; therefore, he had authority. If we are not under authority, we have no authority. All authority outside of the Triune Godhead is delegated authority. David had been given authority by his earthly father Jesse to tend his father’s sheep. David used that authority to slay the enemies that came to devour his father’s flocks. He just used this same premise of authority in regards to his heavenly Father. David knew that when he faced the giant who was in defiance of his heavenly father, that he would be given the power of God to back up the authority he had been given to protect God’s flock called Israel.  (SAM BRASSFIELD will be speaking at KINGDOM CONGRESS 2018 March 7-9.

All Believers Can

The scripture says. “These signs will accompany those who believe” (Mk.16:17):  ALL BELIEVERS can cast out demons. ALL BELIEVERS can speak with tongues. ALL BELIEVERS can walk in God’s Authority over every obstacle. ALL BELIEVERS can lay hands on the sick and have them recover.  So, WHY DON’T WE?  It is time to consider things differently and change our minds. It is time to be CONVINCED God’s Word is TRUE. To BELIEVE means “to adhere to, trust in and rely on.” To the extent that we adhere to, trust in and rely on God and His Word is the extent to which we are convinced of His Authority and Power.  We must be CONFIDENT of His Authority.—Kathy Gabler 


Full Rights as Sons

FatherArmAroundSon1In the Bible, families are where rights, privileges and inheritances are distributed. The first-born son receives the double portion and inherits his father’s authority. Scripture shows us that Jesus is the “first born among many brethren”. (Rom.8:29) In God the Father’s family, all the sons have the inheritance of eldest sons. Gal.4:5— “so that He might redeem and liberate those who were under the Law, that we [who believe] might be adopted as sons [as God’s children with all rights as fully grown members of a family]. (Amp—Bible Gateway)  In the New English Translation it says, “so that we may be adopted as sons with full rights.”

Sons and Inheritance

A very basic matter to understand at the outset is that “son” in the Bible is not about gender. It is about position in Christ and His Kingdom purposes. A person who has been cleansed by the blood of Jesus is brought into the family of God as a son to receive inheritance and authority and function in the Father’s household. In the time period that the Bible was written, inheritance, authority and territory were distributed  within families. Inheritance and authority were given to “sons”.

Under Authority–In Authority

A man in authority is a man under authority (Roman Centurion, Matt.8:9). So… then it is possible for one to count themselves as having authority and yet not be recognized by God as having authority.

Or, considering the operative principle given by the Roman Centurion, it is possible for one to wonder why they don’t have authority in life and circumstances and, while wondering, find their answer in the centurion’s acquired wisdom.
There are those who seem to be ever about the business of insisting they have authority or trying to prove their authority or brandishing titles and accessories to present the appearance of authority. But, from Scripture, it seems that results speak for themselves (v.9). Both Jesus and the Centurion experienced effective results from being under authority.
”Then the officer said, “Sir, I am not worthy to have you in my home; and it isn’t necessary for you to come. If you will only stand here and say, ‘Be healed,’ my servant will get well! I know, because I am under the authority of my superior officers and I have authority over my soldiers…” (Matt.8:8-9a, Living Bible)
