“Listen carefully: I have given you authority [that you now possess] to tread on serpents and scorpions, and [the ability to exercise authority] over all the power of the enemy (Satan); and nothing will [in any way] harm you.”
Luke 10:19 AMP
We were made to function in dependence on and in obedience to YHVH (God). And things have not been right (according to YHVH's divine plan) since Adam chose not to depend on and obey YHVH.
Through Yeshua (Jesus) we have been given the opportunity to follow His example of obedience and intimacy with Abba - so that we can return to the original place of authority for which we were created.
Yeshua went beyond enemy lines to die for our sins so that we could be saved.
“Grace to you and peace [inner calm and spiritual well-being] from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself [as a sacrifice to atone] for our sins [to save and sanctify us] so that He might rescue us from this present evil age, in accordance with the will and purpose and plan of our God and Father—”
Galatians 1:3-4 AMP
This was full on war! Yeshua went to war for our lives as the enemy (Satan) had full on legal right on our lives. Just like Yeshua went into warfare so that we could have the opportunity to be saved, in the same way we gain back our authority! On the battlefield!
Abba wants us to have victory over the enemy. It's His desire that we press on with Yeshua until the enemy is crushed under our feet!
“And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.”
Romans 16:20 KJV
This is not about seeing the bad in everything. Or "looking for the enemy behind every bush or around every corner." But if we put our noses in the Word, pretty soon we'd see that the enemy is in fact behind every bush and around every corner!
“We know [for a fact] that we are of God, and the whole world [around us] lies in the power of the evil one [opposing God and His precepts].”
1 John 5:19 AMP
If that's the case, then we must ask ourselves how much authority does the enemy have?
We read in Scripture what the enemy's plan is:
“The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].”
John 10:10 AMP
To do that, the enemy will do whatever is needed / whatever he can within the parameters of his authority.
Luckily for us - Satan's authority is limited by YHVH!🙌
We are made to function in dependence on and in obedience to YHVH! Whenever we don't do that - we give the enemy legal right to kill, steal & destroy in our lives. YHVH is a God of order. If He said that's how things work, then that's how things work! Until eternity! Regardless of your opinion. If we are not obedient to His Word, then we are the very reason why the enemy can steal from us.
It's time we stop asking YHVH why bad things happen in our lives. And start facing our sins and the sins of our forefathers. It's really time to accept that bloodline curses are real! If it wasn't, there would have been NO need for Yeshua to come to earth and be crucified. If Adam's sin didn't affect us, then why did Yeshua have to die on the cross?
We believe that Adam who lived thousands of years ago brought sin into the world and that therefore we are born as sinners. But we don't believe that the bad choices and disobedience of our parents & grandparents affects us. It's honestly ridiculous!🤣
By being ignorant and not admitting that bloodline curses are real - you're giving the enemy more and more legal right to kill, steal & destroy - EVERY SINGLE DAY!
Satan's authority is limited. He can only gain more authority through human co-operation. Obviously no one is going to say "Yes Satan, I'll do what you ask" when he comes standing in front of you with his red horns and pitch fork. He's not stupid. He was one of the three archangels we read about in Scripture. He had pretty strong authority when he was up in heaven. And when he got cast out - he took all of those appointed under him, with him. That's about a third of the heaven's authority.
And you tell me we don't have to pay attention to his doings? We don't. It's partially true. But if you don't want to pay attention to his ways. You should probably pay attention to your own ways. If your ways don't align with Yeshua's - then they align with Satan's. There's no middle ground.
YHVH created us with a free will. He gave us His Word as blue print for our lives. He also gave us Yeshua Who led by example. But it's for us to choose if we will follow His Word & Yeshua's example. If we don't we follow the enemy's example and we strengthen his authority.
We seriously need to quit asking God "why Lord?" And start looking at ourselves. YHVH gave us His instructions. He created everything and saw that it was GOOD! Evil does not come from God! Evil exists in the absence of God. When there's evil / bad in your life - it's not Abba's way to punish you. He didn't bring that over you.
You had a choice. Your parents had a choice. Your grandparents had a choice. And if you are facing battles in life - it's either thanks to your own choices or the choices of the generations before you.
YHVH is a just God. He is righteous. His Word is the same yesterday, today and forever! We can either accept His instuctions, order our lives to line up with it & experience the authority and freedom we have in Him through Yeshua.
OR we can stuck our heads in the ground, pretend that we are victims and that our choices and the choices of our bloodlines doesn't affect us and keep harvesting the storm of our iniquities blaming everyone but ourselves.
It's a hard message but the time is now.
“Do this, knowing that this is a critical time. It is already the hour for you to awaken from your sleep [of spiritual complacency]; for our salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed [in Christ].”
Romans 13:11 AMP
