“THE AUTHORITY OF THE BELIEVER”
“JESUS GIVES US HIS: “POWER OF ATTORNEY”
DEFINITION OF POWER OF ATTORNEY:
“A STATEMENT IN WRITING, LEGALLY AUTHORIZING A PERSON TO ACT FOR ONE”.
DOES THIS SCRIPTURE SOUND LIKE POWER OF ATTORNEY?
Matthew 28:18-20 Jesus Approached, and breaking the silence, said to them , All Authority (All Power of Rule) in Heaven and on Earth Has Been Given To Me. Go Then and Make Disciples of All the Nations, Baptizing Them into the NAME of the FATHER and of the SON and Of the HOLY SPIRIT. Teaching Them to Observe EVERYTHING that I Have Commanded You, and Behold, I AM With You ALL The Days( Perpetually, Uniformly, and on EVERY Occasion), to the (VERY) Close and Consummation of the Age. Amen (So Let It Be). AMPLIFIED VERSION, THE HOLY BIBLE.
Over the years I have questioned exactly how does one acquire power for healing, etc.? I thought one must fast, pray for hours on one’s knees, does one shout, cry aloud…just what does one do? I have seen all of the aforementioned practices used which sometimes worked and sometimes it did not work; so I have continued to question.
It surely must be simple, as God has always made things very simple especially as He has called us sheep…and everyone knows that sheep are not the most intelligent creatures around. One sheep runs off a cliff and all the rest of the sheep follow…that does not make them ESPECIALLY intelligent!
“What Exactly Does God Mean in Matthew 18:18-20”
Sounds To Me as if God Does Not Want His Followers Making Up Their Own Rules as I Believe That He Was Quite Ticked at the Scribes and The Pharisees For Doing That.
To find out what God is talking about I must go to the Scriptures as the Scriptures are the Voice of God. I will see what He has to say:
“Sounds Like There Is a Qualifier Here”
(It Must Already Be Permitted or Forbidden In Heaven)
I also Remember Something In The Lords’ Prayer To The Effect:
Let It Be On Earth As It Is In Heaven…That Makes It Clear…I Knew It Was Simple!
The Lords’ Prayer, Matthew 6:9-15. Amplified Version, The Holy Bible.
- MATTHEW 18: 18-20, (18) 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. (19) Again I Tell You, If Two of You on EARTH AGREE (Harmonize Together, (Make a Symphony Together) About WHATEVER (Anything and Everything) They May Ask, IT WILL COME TO PASS AND BE DONE FOR THEM BY MY FATHER IN HEAVEN. (20) For Wherever Two or Three are Gathered (Drawn Together as My Followers) in (into) My NAME, There I AM in The Midst of Them. AMPLIFIED VERSION, THE HOLY BIBLE.
So…I Can Ask For Healing, Finances, Protection, Etc. As Long as It Is Permitted in Heaven? Let me see if Those Things Are Permitted In Heaven Because He Just said I Could Have It If It is Permitted in Heaven and I Get Another Believer to AGREE with Me (I’m a Believer). How Hard Is That? The Book of Hebrews tells us more of what is permitted in Heaven…I Will read it for Myself and build My faith. If I Know What Is Permitted in Heaven I Can Pray Correctly and Not Waste My Time Asking Amiss.
- PHILIPPIANS 2:9-11. (9) THEREFORE (BECAUSE HE Stooped so Low) God Has Highly Exalted Him and has Freely Bestowed on Him THE NAME THAT IS ABOVE EVERY NAME. AMPLIFIED VERSION, THE HOLY BIBLE.
NOW, “I Find That Interesting”. Drug Addiction is a Name, Alcohol Addiction is a Name, Heart Disease is a Name, Cancer is a Name, Diabetes is a Name, Greed is a Name, Backbiting is a Name, Slander is a Name, Gossip is a Name, Envy is a Name, Lust is a Name, Anger is a Name, Coveting is a Name, Jealously is a Name, Hatred is a Name, Prejudice is a Name, Adultery is a Name, Fornication is a Name, Theft is a Name, Lying is a Name, Murder is a Name, etc.
He (JESUS) gives me His Power of Attorney to Use His Name That is Over Every Name. All of The Names That I Mentioned are Forbidden in Heaven, so That Means They Are Unlawful to the Believer on Earth…I Don’t Have To Permit Them?
MMMMMMMMMMMM…So, I Can By The Authority Given To Me (Because I am A Believer and Follower of Jesus Christ) Get Rid of Any of These Horrible Names By The NAME That Is Above EVERY NAME “JESUS”. YES, I Find This Piece of INFORMATION Very, Very Interesting. I am going to have to “Chew The Cud”, so-to-speak, on this one!
It Seems To Me That Before I use That Name (JESUS) I Need to Make Sure I have Forgiven Others, Repented of All Sin (Disobedience to the Commandments of Jesus) and Asked for Forgiveness for myself. I KNOW I am the Righteousness of God In Christ, and I am Sanctified (Set Apart By and For JESUS), Justified through His Giving His Life For Me.
I ACCEPTED The WHOLE PACKAGE When I Accepted Jesus Christ…He Accepts me Just-As-I-Am…And As My Grandfather says, “God Makes Us Good Enough” When we by Ourselves Would NOT Be Good Enough To Use That Name…So I Won’t let satan use That One on Me or Anyone Else. Holy Spirit Came in to Give Me The Power To Overcome All of The Names That are Not Permitted in Heaven, When I Committed My Life To JESUS.
It seems to Me That It is GRACE through FAITH That Will Make These Scriptures Work…I am Still Going to Chew On This Subject. LAW IS OUT! I Know That! Grace and Faith…Faith comes by Hearing and Hearing By The Word Of God…Builds FAITH to Operate In That NAME (JESUS). I’ve Just About Got This Figured Out…To Be Truthful I have Tried Using That NAME that is ABOVE EVERY Name and it WORKS…I Have To AGREE WITH The WORD Of GOD and USE THAT NAME (JESUS) and It WORKS!
Here Are Further Instructions For When I am Without Another Believer
or With Another Believer Agreeing With Me:
JOHN 16:23. (23) And When That time comes, you will ask nothing of Me (You will need to ask Me no questions). I ASSURE YOU Most Solemnly I Tell you, that My Father will GRANT YOU WHATEVER YOU ASK IN MY NAME (as Presenting ALL that I AM). (24) Up to this time you have not asked a (single) thing in My Name (as presenting ALL that I AM): but now ask and keep on asking and you will receive, so that your joy (gladness, delight) may be full and complete. AMPLIFIED VERSION THE HOLY BIBLE.
When I am Given Enlightenment On A Scripture Guess Who Comes Around Trying To Remove What Was Just Revealed…Satan. Guess What The Scriptures Say To Do When That Happens: EPHESIANS 4:27 NEITHER GIVE PLACE TO THE DEVIL.
(What Gives Place to The devil…Stay Out of Fear, Worry, and Unbelief)
1 PETER 5:8-9 (8) BE SOBER, BE VIGILANT; BECAUSE YOUR ADVERSARY THE DEVIL, AS A ROARING LION, WALKETH ABOUT, SEEKING WHOM HE MAY DEVOUR:
(9) WHOM RESIST STEADFAST IN THE FAITH, KNOWING THAT THE SAME AFFLICTIONS ARE ACCOMPLISHED IN YOUR BRETHERN THAT ARE IN THE WORLD.
Remember The Scripture That States:
JAMES 4:7 (7) SO BE SUBJECT TO GOD, Resist The devil
(STAND FIRM AGAINST him), and he Will Flee From You.
AMPLIFIED VERSION THE HOLY BIBLE.
What does The devil Bring : FEAR, WORRY And Unbelief…Resist Those Thoughts When They Come! Satan is Terrified of The NAME JESUS!
WHEN I am Praying and Asking Without Another Believer, I HAVE TO AGREE WITH THE SCRIPTURES AS I Am AGREEING WITH GOD. I Keep Asking in The NAME of JESUS and Remain Steadfast and The Answer Comes.
I Remember That NAME, (JESUS) Is ABOVE EVERY NAME!
That NAME has Worked in Two Instances since I have discovered the what is permitted in Heaven Scripture. (I have always used the Name of Jesus in My Prayers and I had read that scripture many times without proper enlighment). When I Used That Name For Myself (Healing) With The Agreement of Another Believer Who Had Faith and I Had Faith it worked…Now I have to Stand Steadfast. I Think Jesus Would Be Delighted if I can help another believer to have FAITH in that NAME; that is Permitted in Heaven!
