Take Authority

16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw Him they worshiped Him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.’” ~ Matthew 28:16-20

This is after the resurrection and just before the ascension. Jesus had instructed His disciples to go to a certain mountain at a certain time to meet Him there. These are the last recorded words of Jesus in the Gospel according to Matthew, “…All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me…” When Jesus said ALL authority, He actually meant ALL authority, meaning that He has authority to overrule any other and every other authority or power or word or law. No other power or authority has authority when the name of Jesus is invoked.

Call upon that name that is above all names, and nothing will be impossible for him who believes. We are not called His body for nothing. We must be His hands, His feet, His eyes, His ears, His mouth, and His heart. We must be His heart so that we can show love to the unlovable. Someone once said the only Jesus some people will see is the Jesus in you. You are God’s agent holding God’s power of attorney.

If you’re sick, take authority. Harassed by harassing spirits, take authority. Are you broke? Take authority. Need a job, take authority. Whatever your need, He will supply; just take authority.

Peace. Love Go Forth and Take Authority.
