The authentic authority of God is not given by compromising or giving in to the enemy.
God gives you His authority as you seek to contend and fight with the enemy for the ground God has entrusted to you.
If you have to compromise or give in to the enemy that is false authority and it does not come from God which can only be sustained in the flesh and can be taken from you at any time since God did not give it to you.
It is about you being seated with Christ in heavenly places and been given power and dominion to reign as a son and daughter of God.
When you have the authority of God you will naturally attract people, however you must have the wisdom of God.
When you have the authority of God, you do not have to become affiliated with a certain person, sect or group to have dominion or power. Actually if you have to do that, you are in a cult and that is not of God or of His kingdom.
When you have the authority of God, you do not follow human protocols, but you follow what The Holy Spirit says.
When you have the authority of God, you do not try to win over people or gain the likes of people to strengthen or build a platform or league, that too is occultism.
The authority of God comes through a submitted lifestyle to God, holiness, righteousness, obedience, relationship and intimacy with God.
It is the authority that causes witches, warlocks and the host of hell to be subjected to you, because of the power you carry and walk in.
Why do you think God allows those especially the five-fold (Apostles, Prophets, Evangelist, Pastor, Teachers) to go through such arduous training?
It is not because of nothing! It is called preparation!
When you have been processed by God, everything about you changes. You do not fool or play around.
It is about pleasing and glorifying God. It is about pointing people to God and not yourself.
The anointing on your life will draw sometimes multitudes to you because of WHO you represent, what you carry and who God has made you.
Sometimes for this reason God takes His servants through a long and what sometimes seems like a “drawn out” process because of what they will be used to do and the measure of impact they will have in the earth.
No true son or daughter of God just “comes up” or appears on the scene. Sometimes it is even years before they are seen or recognized, because it is about God and not them.
God will set you apart because of what He will use you to do. His words to us is, “Come out from among them and be separate,” says The LORD.
“Do not touch the unclean and I will receive you. I will be a Father to you, and you shall be my sons and daughters,” says the LORD Almighty, (2 Corinthians 6:17-18).
If you have to fight or compromise, it is a sign you do not have the authentic authority of God.
When you have the authentic authority, heaven fights and protect you when all hell comes against you or seeks to destroy you.
