All Believers Can Do This

As children of God, God has given each one of us “Authority”. There is a misconception  that only those in full time ministry have this authority! However, we receive it from the moment we accept Jesus as our savior.

To Adam and Eve, God said in Genesis 1:28: “God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.””

When they sinned, the devil took away this authority  and later, Jesus came and took it back from the devil! After he takes back the authority he compels his 12 disciples and later 70 of them to use it as they preached the gospel and heal the sick in His name.

Luke 10:19  “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.

Snakes attack from the front and scorpions from the back. When Satan attacks God’s children from many sides, Jesus says He has given us His authority to trample them. Also no harm will befall us.
People may come against us, but no one can overpower us because of the authority God has given us. No weapon, no power of the enemy, and no mountain can stand before us!
1 John 4:4 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.

When the Holy Spirit came upon the 120 on Pentecost Day, He did not come as a weak spirit, He came as a strong wind and as a fire. No harm will befall us!
Some people teach that we shouldn't pray against the devil because then it may cause us further harm. However, there is no such teaching in the Word of God and we know that we have the authority and power that God has given us! Nothing will ever harm me ! Our life’s attitude and perspective must change according to God’s Word.

Mark 16:17-18 “And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”

The devil has no legal right over us. If you are a child of God, you have a legal right and authority over demons and diseases! If we do not use this power, that is on us for ignoring the authority God has given us. There are many times in our life when we do not use our God given talents, money, time etc in the right way and it goes to waste. The Word says that “these signs accompany those who believe”. It does not say this will only happen through disciples or pastors or people who have gone to Bible school. This is available to anyone who believes!

The first ministry that Jesus did was drive out a demon from a man after his forty day fast in the wilderness (the first miraculous sign was turning water into wine).

We have the authority to drive out any evil spirit and command it to leave us. We also have this authority to command sicknesses to leave our lives! We should say this till it leaves us and we must believe with conviction. As we submit to God and resist the devil, he will flee from you.
