Matthew 10
7And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
8Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give

Mark 16
16Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;
18 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.”
19 So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God.
20 And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen

Luke 10:19
Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.





Many Christians think everything that happens is from God, even bad things. The devil runs over them and they think God is doing it. Not my God !! He is good


James 1
17Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.


Psalm 145
8 The LORD is gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger and great in mercy.
9 The LORD is good to all, And His tender mercies are over all His works.


38How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.


John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

It was Jesus Himself who said this and I will believe Jesus and what God's Word says any day over denominational doctrine or what people say. Everything we do is based on faith in what He tells us in His Word. Without it we do not have the God kind of faith to accomplish anything.




According to 2 Corinthians 4:4 satan is the god of this world and he tries to control circumstances. To think everything is of God is a man made tradition, religious thinking, and not the Word of God. Jesus told the religion leader of his day they were just teaching their own doctrines and saying it was Gods doctrines, "laying aside the commandment of God" and holding "to the tradition of men". He is telling us, when you do this you are "making the word of God of none effect " (Mark 7:7-8,13) in your life through your tradition. Because of man made doctrine and unbelief , many of the churches are just a "form of religion" and void of power.

Mark 1:23And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,
24Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.
25And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.
26And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.
27And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.





If this were true everything is from God why did Jesus heal the sick and cast out devils? Why did he raise the dead and calms the storm ? Evidently everything that comes our way is not God. This kind of thinking is why Christains do not take authority over demonic activities.

He had been teaching his disciples about how to use their authority but they just wanted Him to do it instead, and not do it themselves. Christians are like that today. Although Jesus gave us this kind of authority most don't exercise it.


Matthew 8
16When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick

Luke 7:22
Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached

Mark 4
37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
38And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
39And he arose, and rebuked the wind
, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
40And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
41And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?


Jesus stopped the storm and He would not stop anything His Father was doing, for He only does what he sees His father do. This was send to destroy them, but instead Jesus destroyed the work of the devil (1 John 3:8).




Jesus sends us forth into the world and gives us authority over all the works of the enemy.


John 14:12
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.



Matthew 28: 19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Luke 9: 5And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.
6And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing every where.


Revelation 12:11
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Thats some good word Gloria . The power is in the name of Jesus ! Our authority comes through us only in Jesus name . Many have laid aside this teaching because many have misused Jesus name in the past . The name of Jesus can raise the Dead ! I know . My father-in-law was dead in Jefferson Hospital for three and a half months ! Even his brain stem was declared dead ! Only the breathing machine kept him alive .

The day he died , God spoke to me and said , Get up ... go to that Hospital ... and say that not only will he rise .... But he would return back to his full time job ! We spoke that word over him until he rose up from the Dead ! I do not care who believes me because we were there and we have the hospital report . Why did he rise ? Because the Father told me that it was not him that came to take him home , but satan , the angel of death . When did God reveal this to me ? 3 weeks before it happened !

Not all will be healed because we all have our day to die . But if it be satan who comes against us . Then the name of Jesus mixed with unwavering faith , will work if we faint not . This is one of the many testimonies I plan on telling on TalkJesus . I do not care if any think it to be true or sound doctrine . It happened and medical science has no answer for it ! Same as my children . God sent them to us and told me before hand why and what his plans are for them . The doctors said , no way will they ever be here . But in Jesus name...they are here ! And I have much more good news about Jesus Christ and all he has done in our live's . Jesus Christ is Alive folks and he is the same yesterday , today , and forever more ! Whether you want to believe that or not is your choice . But as for me and my house , we will serve the God who has risen and is ALIVE TODAY ! Mike

Thank you sister Gloria for another great thread. Thank you GOD in Jesus Christ for giving us ALL authority over ALL evil things! Our GOD is an awesome GOD! He gave us a portion of HIS power, authority to use over all things that come against us so that we may stand strong, firm and to Glorify GOD.

Great post Gloria...its nice to see the saints talking about the power of God, in the name of Jesus Christ. Praise his name, he still works signs and wonders for his people.

And they confirmed the word with signs following...Mark 16:20


God bless all

Exactly!


Very nice post Gloria. I agree with 100% of what you said! Before I was saved and at first I couldn't bring myself to understand why GOD would let his children hurt and be hurt. But now I don't even begin to think of that because I know that GOD is nothing but good! Nothing bad will ever come from HIM. Except HIS wrath.

GOD loves each one of us and wants us to have a good life. Satan is why bad things happen. He does all sorts of things and it is so easy to blame GOD for some people but why not automatically think its satan?

Satan will hurt you over and over again if you are living your life for JESUS. He will try to do everything he can to pull you away from what he knows is the TRUTH the LIGHT the WAY! We can stop each and everything satan tries to do. We he puts a damper on our lives thats when we say no we won't have this because ' I am protected by the blood of JESUS' We have complete authority over satan. We tell him to go and he has to flee.

Use GOD's word (the sword) and the enemy will surrender. That is until next time when you least expect it he will try to hit you again. Just remember to fill up you ammunition (knowledge of the Word) and prepare for the battle. If you do this there will never be a halt in your relationship with CHRIST. I am so glad you posted this! May GOD Bless You abundantly!

thank you for posting such a wondeful post, thank You Lord for giving her such insight.

the Father gave His authority to Jesus, Jesus empowered us with this authority and we are commissioned to use it. i pray that like gloria we see these facts, we believe these facts and we live a life of love, using this authority over the evil one.

mike, thank you for sharing brother. i do not dis bleief your testimony, but rather i thank the Lord for working through you in this way. what we see and what we hear form society are and always will be different from what the Lord tells us. for God is able, God is truth, God is trustworthy.

and as such, if the good Lord says that he can do anything and everything that he said he would do.

James 4:12
there is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and destroy.

Ephesians 3:20
now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,

Matthew 9:28
when He had gone indoors, the blind men came to Him, and He asked them, "do you believe that I am able to do this?" "yes, Lord," they replied.


for if we trust in the Lord, if we live in the love of the Lord, if we have the fire of the Spirit burning within us, then by letting Him work through us we can and we will overcome all that the evil one will try and do.

God bless

Gloria, It is so true that the body of Christ as a whole has not walked inthe authority that has been given to us. Thank God we don't have to be punching bags for Satan. I've been there and it's not fun. Praise God we are more than conquorers in Christ.

So good to see you online tonight I hear you! lol - I was thinking the same thing after I posted this . I have been on both side also: a defeated, negative Christan - but then Jesus revealed his Word to me and now I can live a positive victorious life in Christ Jesus- this is much better!
(We must be thinking alike!} :thumbs_up:

It's great to hear...

Thanks Gloria for starting this thread. It is so great to hear the testimonies and faith of Talk Jesus members. It is very encouraging and empowering to know that there are others who have witnessed the effectual working of God's power within us. I pray that we may continue to grow and succeed in gloryfying our wonderful Creator who has so amply supplied us with great authority.

Thanks again Gloria.
