Christians receive their authority from Jesus Christ and all authority is vested in Him. Every believer has the authority that has been delegated to them by Jesus Christ.
“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues,” (Mk. 16:15-17).
Knowing one’s spiritual authority and how to use their binding power, enables one to enter into spiritual warfare with faith to overcome.
Believers in Jesus Christ have every advantage to defeat demons. The Word says, “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you,”(Lk. 10:19). In addition, Jesus gives Christians power to use His name in (Matt. 28:28). “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given unto me, therefore go . . .” He gave us the legal right of absolute authority. His power is, “Far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come,” (Eph. 1:21). His power is above all power. He gives His believers the power to do His work. In prayer we bind Satan, WE DO IT! Not Jesus!
The warfare is revealed in (Eph. 6:12),“principalities, powers, rulers of darkness of this world, and spiritual forces of wickedness in high places (heavenlies); The things too loose from the Devil’s power according to (Lk. 13:12:) nation, state, cities, community, geographical areas, church, family individual members of family, relatives, professions, vocations, businesses, education, finances, physical health, mental health.
We war against the powers of darkness that tie and destroy the plans of Satan commanding him to loose all controls from his powers. This spiritual power is the greatest force in the universe because its source of power is God Himself. (Ps. 62:11), says, “God has spoken once; twice have I heard this that power belongeth unto God.” This spiritual power can do things no other controlling influence can do.
In the King James Version of the Bible, there is often little distinction made between “power” and “authority,” that they quite closely related is seen in the fact that authority is valueless without the power to enforce it. Power is primarily to God, but may be applied to any holder of power, whether human or superhuman. The “powers” mentioned several times in the New Testament, often referred to angelic beings believe to exorcize both on earth and in “the heavenly places.” According to the scriptures, these have been overcome by Jesus Christ.
