We imitate His ministry.
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart,” (Heb. 4:12).
Jesus used the Word of God when He needed the Power of God. We use the Word of God to tap into the power of God! Jesus was a doer of the Word.
“Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers’ only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed,” (Jam. 1:21-25).
“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him,” (Eph. 1:17). Paul shows the power relationship between the believer and Jesus’ exalted position of authority.
Wisdom, revelation and knowledge of Jesus by the Spirit. You must see Jesus from the Father’s point of view. Jesus has already won the battle against Satan!
He has authority to give you that same power! Seeing His exalted position gives you a picture of Satan’s defeat!
“The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,” (Eph. 1:19).
Knowing the hope of his calling is achieving the ability to overcome every dart of the enemy. You can walk in your inheritance!
“And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,” (Vs. 19).The Exceeding greatness of His power . . . His power is sovereign!
“And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.”–Luke 4:36
The Bible shows the devil at a great disadvantage concerning his power over Christians. Additionally, Satan is shown as an inferior antagonist in light of what Jesus Christ gave to His church. Satan can only take the place that he is given. The Scripture makes it clear that the battle is not our personal battle. We are part of the war but the battle is the Lord’s. We are led by the unconquerable One. Therefore, the battle rests upon His ability and He has already won the war! (Read Jn. 14: 15-27).
Jesus commanded by the Word. Spoke the word and water was made into wine.Blessed the bread and the fishes and they were multiplied. Spoke the word to dead Lazarus and he came out of the grave. Commanded demons to leave a writhing victim alone and to come out of him was loosed that same hour.
