“One day Jesus called together his twelve disciples [a] and gave them power and authority to cast out all demons and to heal all diseases.
Then he sent them out to tell everyone about the Kingdom of
God and to heal the sick.” Luke 9:1-2
We were born to rule – rule over
creation, over darkness – to plunder hell and establish the rule of Jesus wherever we go by preaching the gospel of the kingdom.
Kingdom means: King’s
domain. In the original purpose of God, mankind ruled over creation. Now that sin has entered the world, creation has been infected by darkness, namely:
disease, sickness, afflicting spirits, poverty, natural disasters, demonic influence, etc.
Our rule is still over
creation, but now it is focused on
exposing and undoing the works of the devil.
We are to give what we have
received to reach that end. If we truly
receive power from an encounter with
the God of power, we are equipped to
give it away. The invasion of God into
the impossible situations comes through
a people who have received power from
on high and learn to release it into the
circumstance of life.” (Bill Johnson)
This scripture in Luke is just as true today as it was when Jesus spoke it when He was on earth. If we have had an encounter with God, we are to take that power into the world so that we can change the world for God. Today start believing you are a child of God and you have the power.
