And hath raised us up together and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus
There’s so much we can do with the application of the deep truth revealed in the verse above. Our authority in Christ is all-encompassing and unlimited. We’re seated with Christ in the place of power, in a position of dominion and great glory.
We can put a stop to the deception, perils and havoc the devil and his cohorts concoct around the world. You can stand your ground and speak God’s Word in prayer and exercise authority in Christ Jesus over your body, your family and loved ones, your city, your state, and your country. We’re the ones in charge!
We function in Jesus’ stead, in His dominion! Look at what He did to the demons of darkness in hell: “He DISARMED the Principalities and the Powers [which fought against Him…” (Colossians 2:15 Conybears Translation). Hallelujah! Read the Phillips New Testament translation and dance for joy: “And then having drawn the sting of all the powers ranged against us, He exposed them, shattered, empty and
defeated, in His final glorious triumphant act!”
Guess what? When He did all that in hell, you were in Him. So, in Him, you already shattered, disarmed, and defeated Satan and his cohorts of darkness. Maintain your dominion and victory over them. In praying for all men, your city, nation, and leaders, affirm that Satan’s influence is cut off.
Stand in your authority in Christ and utter words: words of life, words of glory, words of liberty, words of prosperity, blessings, and grace. Bless your world with words of righteousness. Remember, words are limitless; and your divinity, your dominion and authority in Christ are expressed primarily through words. Glory to God!
All of creation—Satan, demons, angels, everything in life, living and non-living—have all been commanded to hear and obey me, because I sit in Jesus’ seat!
I put a stop to the wanton destruction of lives perpetuated by the devils of darkness in the nations of the world; I declare that their influence is cut off; there’s increased works of righteousness, and the will
of God is established in the nations and in the hearts of men, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
