SEPTEMBER 23: Use Your Authority
“Truly I tell you, whatever you forbid and declare to be improper and unlawful on earth must be what is already forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit and declare proper and lawful on earth must be what is already permitted in heaven.” Matthew 18:18 The Amplified Bible
Once we find out what heaven thinks about matters on earth, it is then up to us to enforce on the earth what is established in heaven. Jesus told us that we have this authority. If we don’t use it, it won’t be exercised. We find out what heaven thinks about a situation when we go to the Bible and see what it says. The Bible lets us know what God thinks. When we find situations in life that are out of line with what heaven thinks should go on in the earth, then we as the Body of Christ must take authority over them in the Name of Jesus and command them to come into subjection to the Word of God, whether it be in our personal lives or something that effects the plan of God in the earth. We hold the keys.
Scripture reading: Mark 16:15-20; 1 John 4:1-4
