When Adam fell, Satan gained the legal right to power and authority throughout the earth.
At Calvary, when Jesus took back the keys of hell, death, and the grave, He took back that power — hence “all power in heaven and on earth” was given to Him, and He gave it to us! (Matthew 28:18-20)
So — Satan has nothing other than his accusations against us. As John wrote, “Greater is He that is in us than he who is in the world!” (1 John 4:4)
Jesus said of The Church, “And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 16:19)
Translating from the original Greek, this reads, “Whatever is bound in heaven you can bind on earth, and whatever is loosed in heaven you can loose on earth!”
A subtle but important difference!
The phrase ‘on earth as it (already) is in heaven’ springs to mind.
This is why Satan is so afraid right now — because many Christians are actually realising much that he has tried to keep hidden from us for so very long!
We are now in the process of appropriating the power Jesus Himself gave us. We are daring to believe the most ‘outrageous’ promises of God in our lives.
C’mon Church — rise up — take your authority — enforce the wonderful victory of Calvary.
The time is NOW for us to preach the Gospel, to heal the sick, to cast out demons, to raise the dead, and even greater things.
We will no longer be surprised by the miraculous — rather we will be surprised when it doesn’t happen.
Oh Glory to God, the coming season will be so full of miracles, signs, and wonders that the unsaved will queue out of curiosity and leave with salvation, healing, deliverance and baptism in The Holy Spirit!
ALL because The Church, the Remnant Church, Christians like you and me, begin first to take their authority, then to enforce that same God-given authority in The Name of Jesus Christ.
