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.

Restoration of David’s Tabernacle

(SAM BRASSFIELD is speaking at Kingdom Congress 2017. This is an excerpt from one of his training manuals.)    David’s Key of Authority: Using God’s power with His permission brings absolute victory over the enemies of God.
David had the power to overcome all his adversaries, because he was under the authority of his God. Thus he had God’s permission to rule over his enemies, because he was a true worshiper . He exercised this authority in both the spiritual realm and the natural realm. These two worlds are connected. David understood the power and authority that he had in both worlds, the spiritual and the natural realm. If he didn’t first and foremost have authority with God in the spirit realm, he would not have had the power to overcome the enemies in the natural realm. The power given to his enemies came from the demonic or spirit world of Satan and his power was manifested in their worship to the gods of the Philistines and all other enemies of Israel who worshiped Baal and other entities. They worshiped spirit beings, demons, and objects made of stone, wood or the formations in the heavens, all of which were storefronts of Satan. He is behind all idolatry and yet tries to appear as an angel of light in his world of darkness. David had knowledge of this dark spiritual world around him and knew he had authority over them in the name of his God. This word got out quickly that David had such authority. That’s the reason King Saul’s servants called for David to come sing, play his harp and worship his God. They knew when he did, the demons would have to flee from Saul without delay. Now are we seeing the need of the restoration of the Tabernacle of David a little more clearly? We too, like David, must understand our authority in both worlds.

Preferred Government

Preferred Government—Nebuchanezar was in office for an unlimited term. Nebuchanezar is the one who took the choicest of Israel’s future threehebrewsand enslaved them for the purpose of culturizing them to the values of Babylon. In spite of that fact the Hebrews Daniel, Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego triumphed and impacted the culture of Babylon with the precepts of Jehovah. (Let us not forget that much prayer was the habit of Daniel.) Saul was in office for an unlimited term. Saul is the one who attempted to murder the future of Israel’s government. In spite of that fact David triumphed. Saul was actually used as a catalyst to join the tribes of the nation to David and see that he was seated on the throne. (Remember: David is an OT type of the NT Christ) After being under Saul’s government, Israel much preferred the government of David (NT Christ) over the government of Saul (Heb.: “desired”). He who was so desired became so undesired. (Let us not forget that much worship was the habit of David.)


Blocking the Blocker

handblockingIt’s not over. I pray today that people or entities that have tried to create some type of negative interference or to do some type of harm will not be successful. Let’s pray that our Lord interfere with the interference. Just as the Lord God intervened when entities were trying to keep King David from the throne, may God block those attempts that are trying to prevent you from arriving where and when God has ordained you to be. When men had tried to prevent Joseph from getting to destiny he told them in Gen.50:20 “what you meant for evil, God meant for good for the saving of many.” May that which is blocking you be blocked. It’s not over. We are praying you discover daily that God’s intervention is causing interference with those things trying to block your righteous advance.

God’s Supremacy Working

LionDavidIn the Bible the LION could not prosper against David because David kept God in the supreme position in his life, in his thoughts, and in his consideration.  The BEAR could not prosper against David because of the supremacy of God in David’s life. The GIANT could not prosper against David even though he came against David with the deadliest of weapons. KING Saul could not prosper against David even though he was conniving and had supreme authority in the land. God’s supremacy was far greater than all of them. (Ps.74:12, NASB) “Yet God is my king from of old, Who works deeds of deliverance in the midst of the earth.” We are praying that no matter what the opposition, you discover daily God’s supremacy working in you and in your behalf.


Not the end of the Story

SamuelAnointDavidAs a mere boy David was anointed by one of the most powerful and effective prophets of all time. He was anointed, not to be pageboy, not to be the king’s confidant but to be king. But a few short years later he is standing in a cave shaking his head …. totally confused. This seemingly misplaced shepherd cries: Look to my right and see; no one is concerned for me. I have no refuge; no one cares for my life (Ps 142:4, NIV). But that was not the end of the story. That scenario certainly didn’t consume most of the pages of the book about David’s life. We also must read all the many, many pages which tell about all the battles David won. As he dances before the ark of the Lord while it is being brought to Zion (2Sam 6:14), they have come too late to tell him God does not make a way for those whom He calls. Scoffers have come too late to tell David God is not faithful, that God does not bring to victory those He ordains.

Opposition (Of Course)

It is obvious that the men who joined David at Hebron for the purpose of “turning the kingdom” were well aware of and well prepared for opposition and resistance: Now these are the numbers of the divisions equipped for war, who came to David at Hebron, to turn the kingdom of Saul to him, ManUpAgainstWallaccording to the word of the LORD (1Chr 12:23). They didn’t wish themselves someplace else; they adjusted to the times and accomplished what could not be easily attained. What God has ordained always has been and will be most certainly resisted by the kingdom of darkness. Though we fight from a position of victory, the kingdom of darkness will continue to resist until the final manifestation of our victory that has come through the cross of Christ. Advancing the Kingdom of God (any aspect or all aspects of it) has never been without resistance and never will be until that day. In every generation there are scores of people who get discouraged and despair because of adverse circumstances and wish they were not living on the planet God ordained them effective on, but Jahweh is no less faithful in this moment of history than He was in 2Co 4:9: we know that God knows what to do; we’ve been spiritually terrorized, but God hasn’t left our side. We live in this time in history because God ordained it so and He also ordained the days to come for His Name’s sake (Ps23:3;106:8;1Jn2:12;3Jn:1:7) even if there is opposition we must come to understand and gain knowledge to overcome (1Chr 12:32). Resistance takes different forms at different stages of history and is dealt with at various intensity levels at various times but we still win battle after battle and conflict after conflict.
