Walking in Heavenly Authority

Luke 10:19-20

“Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you. “Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are recorded in heaven.”

As a believer in Christ, God wants you to be aware of your reality, which is heaven on earth in the here and now. This is not simply a humble, peace-making ideology, but a tangible, practical, life-giving world of wonder, filled with the substance of God’s power and optimistic love. God’s ecstatic, joy-filled imagination formed and shaped a world of fantastical bliss that all of your senses can engage in and interact with  through the eyes of your imagination, as you meditate on the heavenly realities of Jesus’ finished work (Ephesians 1:18). This New World in Jesus is your honeymoon island, given to you through God the Father, which you explore as you sail on your Holy Spirit luxury cruise ship! 1 Corinthians 2:12 describes it this way: ‘we have received the Spirit who is from God so that we may know the things freely given to us by God’ – with God, everything is smooth sailing! You can expect bliss-filled days in this entirely new world of serenity in Christ! (2 Corinthians 5:17)

In your marriage to Jesus Christ, you have been translated to the Grand Isle of Heaven, which is ‘in all and through all’ (Ephesians 4;6; Colossians 1:17; 1 Corinthians 8:6). So how do you access and engage with this reality, living in the heavenly victory and authority which is your inheritance? – Simple! You SEE this Island is real, through the belief that Jesus’ resurrection is yours, and thus, the entire Godhead lives within you! Colossians 1:27-28 in The Passion Translation states that: ‘Living within you is the Christ who floods you with the expectation of glory! The mystery of Christ, embedded within us, becomes a heavenly treasure chest of hope filled with the riches of glory for his people, and God wants everyone to know it! Christ is our message! We preach to awaken hearts and bring every person to the full understanding of truth’.

As you understand the authority within you, you will walk effortlessly in the manifest blessings of heaven on earth, including all of your enemies – whether they be emotional, relational, or financial – having to bow down to this revelation that you live in heaven on earth. Deuteronomy 28:7 states that ‘The LORD will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven’. Jesus causes you to walk on flourishing paths of intoxicating heavenly beauty and prosperity. God has given you tangible, authentic heaven on earth in the here and now. It is this revelation that transforms everything – every last enemy- into conforming with the truth that your name is recorded in heaven! You are in heaven!

Famous Faith

Romans 1:8

‘First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is being reported all over the world.’

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be famous? If you could be famous, what would you like to be famous for? A lot of people shy away from things like fame and glory and praise. But why? Probably because of feelings of unworthiness, or false humility! What’s unfortunate about this though is that God is not afraid of the limelight, and he has created you to shine also! Now, don’t get me wrong, God is in no way egocentric, and his highest priority is you! However, he loves to show off his love for us in splendid ways, just like he wants you to enjoy his love with his incomparable favour and glory!

Shying away from glory, redirecting it, or simply hiding it under a bushel is what many see to be humble. But, God has given you his very own glory (see John 17:22), and he desires for you to live in it and enjoy it! God has always desired for his people to be famously known for his goodness on their lives, and their faith in that goodness! Look at Abraham and David; they experienced the favour of God under the fading glory of the old covenant and were so rich and famous that they made the surrounding people, even kings, take notice! They were also known for their faith in that goodness, and provided a shadow of what we get to enjoy under the new covenant!

Jesus desires for his bride, like Abraham, to be famously known for the extravagant love-gifts she receives from her lover and for the powerful faith she operates in! Paul acknowledges that the church in Rome were operating in the glory realm and enjoying the faith of Jesus within them! He also makes it clear that this is because the church in Rome had a foundation of the grace of God! Paul says in Romans 1:5 that grace calls out to the obedience of faith; meaning, those who planted the church were enjoying grace and so called those Gentiles to believe on the finished work and so enjoy grace too. Paul emphasises that the church in Rome were among those who were called by grace to come to faith! This is why they were famous for their faith! Because it wasn’t mixed with the fading glory of the law! So, today know that Daddy God loves you and delights in you experiencing the fame of his glory, and wants you, along with the whole church to be famous for faith in the grace of God!
