There was a movie that was out last year called “The Lion King”.
The Lions name was King Mufasa and he had a cub named Simba. He brought Simba to a mountain top and said to him: Everything that the light (meaning the sunlight) touches is our kingdom.
He explained the responsibility of kingship and warned him not to go into the dark shadowy places. Simba’s evil uncle lured him into that dark place to try to kill him but his father came to his rescue before the wild animals devoured him.
The father taught him several things such as knowing his position and understanding his authority,
Before Mufasa died he told Simba: “Believe in yourself and there will come a day when others will have no choice but to believe with you”.
And then he told Simba something that remained with him throughout the years. He said: “Remember who you are, you are my son.”
Simba survived through many attempted attacks from wild animals as he grew up and eventually became king. He entered into a new place and all the animals there accepted him as a friend. He then had a baby cub to pass on his legacy.
I rarely watch movies but I watched that movie today and The LORD showed me several things. It’s fascinating how the Holy Spirit could speak through just about anything.
Before Jesus died and was resurrected, he released his authority to us. In the book of John chapter 17 he was talking to his father and he said: and the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one.
As Holy Spirit filled believers we could change the world when we get the revelation that we are living below our nature and short of our potential. Jesus has given us authority and many of us still don’t understand it.
Jesus made an impact everywhere that he went when he walked the earth. People recognized his authority and the religious leaders were astonished by his teaching.
He healed the sick, cleansed the leper and raised the dead. People who were demon possessed screamed out confessing that he was the son of God.
Jesus has given us that same authority. It was prophesied in the book of Acts,
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
We have to remember who we are.
The LORD says; “I AM inviting you today into a deeper relationship with Me. I desire to lead you as my sons and daughters.
I want to teach you and reveal My power through you. As you speak My Word, situations in your life will begin to shift. As you use My Authority and speak My Name, mountains will move.
I have given you authority over all sickness and disease. As you lay hands on the sick, they shall recover.
Whatsoever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven. Whatsoever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
I have given you the power to overcome every obstacle that comes against you and to tear down strongholds using the mighty weapons that I have provided for you.
As you use the authority, dominion and power that I have released to you in my name, you will begin to rule and reign on this earth and My Glory will prevail in your lives and ministries,” says The LORD.
“When He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease,” Matthew 10:1.
“And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover,” Mark 16:17-18.
“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.
“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you” Luke 10:19.
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth,” Acts 1:8.
