Walking in Authority






This week we had the topic spiritual warfare with Dean Shearman. He wrote a book on the same topic which I actually ended up reading for one of my book reports. Dean talked on such simple stuff but at the same time it was such a new revelation. I enjoyed it so much, being really challenged and reminded about how we do live in a world where we are getting attacked. Spiritual warfare is REAL.

Everything we do affects the spirit world. We need to submit to the Holy Spirit. Stand firm in our faith and in who God is. Put on the full armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-20) everyday. And walk in the authority that you have been given through the cross.
 

Top points from this week

  • You don’t have to become a nothing for God to become a something. He is already something, He is everything!” I found this point so true as so many times in life I find we lower ourselves or put ourselves down to bring God higher. 
  • We have all authority in the blood of Jesus Christ.
  • “Spirit power moves to and through humans according to their amount of yielding”
  • It’s your authority we have in prayer by the way we live”
  • “Quit putting yourself down because you’ve done stupid stuff in your past, that’s selfish behaviour. 
  • God created humans to reflect the image of God, and to rule over sin, Satan, and death.
  • Death and darkness are not real. Death is only the absence of life. Darkness is only the absence of light. Life and light are reality. Death and darkness are the absence of reality. Death comes from the enemy. Jesus is the resurrection and the life (John 11:25).

So how do we do warfare? 

  • Through Prayer and Relationships (with God and with others)
  • Repent quickly & continuously - don't let sin remain to give any opportunity to the devil. 
  • ALWAYS exercise faith
  • Forgive quickly & continuously towards others 
  • ALWAYS exercise humility.
