Exousia

När vi på djupet förstår vem vi är i Kristus så börjar vi också förstå vilken makt vi har fått delgerad till oss i den här världen.
Jesus säger i Joh 14.12-14
"12 Amen, amen säger jag er: Den som tror på mig skall utföra de gärningar som jag gör, och större än dessa skall han göra, ty jag går till Fadern. 13 Och vad ni än ber om i mitt namn, skall jag göra, för att Fadern skall bli förhärligad i Sonen. 14 Om ni ber om något i mitt namn, skall jag göra det".

Häpnadesväckade ord, men inte desto mindre sanna! Fundera en stund på vad de innebär i din vardag.
I dessa bibelställen beskrivs den makt Jesus har med det grekiska ordet "exousia"
Matt 28:18, Matt 9:6, 21:23, Joh 17:2, Luk 4:6
Det är den makten vi har fått delegerad till oss!

I boken "Herren hus" skriver författaren så här: "Vidden av vår kärlek avgör vidden av vår andliga auktoritet". Det tål att funderas på i dagens Sverige.

Mighty

Mighty, mighty, mighty!
I have risen you up mighty in Me. I have given you authority over all of the power of the enemy. Do not fear when I send you into battle, for I have prepared you for it. I have dressed you with My armor. I have clad your feet with the authority to trample on the snakes and scorpions of the evil one, and nothing of his is able to cause you any lasting eternal harm. He is powerless before Me and I have already given you victory over him.

Your enemy the devil has already been defeated, and yet he fights on until the day when he is cast into the pit. He fights dirty because he knows that the day of defeat is unavoidable and he is furious about that. His desire is to do as much harm as he can, to take down as many of My creation as he can with him. On some, he uses lies and flattery and deceit and false promises of fulfillment and pleasure. On others he uses oppression and sickness and dread and hardship and bondage. On others he uses fear. But his goal for each one is the same. He wants to rob and steal and kill and destroy, he wants to take a many as he can with him to eternal destruction.

My desire for you is that you do not allow him to do this. That is why I have placed a double edged sword in your hand. With one edge you can speak My words of life to those he deceives, to the cutting apart and the separating of the bone and marrow. I have given you prophetic revelation that you might reveal the lies of the enemy to break people out of deception and get them to embrace My truth. With the other edge, you can sever the bondage and oppression and affliction that he places on people. You can cast out the demons, command sickness to flee and set people free from all bondages and addictions. I have already purchased these things on Calvary, they are Mine to dispense as I please. And I have given them to you, that you might fight fully equipped, that you might defeat the plans of the devil and cause My plans to be established in this earth.

Do not fear the battle, little one, for I will indeed give you the victory. I have made you mighty in Me and you shall surly go in My authority when I send you to war. There may be times when you are injured in battle. But do not fear, for I am your healer. There is nothing that your enemy the devil can throw against you that can catch My by surprise. There is nothing he can do that I cannot handle. When you fight, you do not fight alone; I fight with you and I fight for you and I will be mighty on your behalf.

Yes, I have already given you My authority over the enemy. I have already made you mighty in Me. I have already clothed you in My armor. I have already given you the shield and sword and all that you need to war. In addition, I am showing you My battle plan and I am giving you My strategies. As you implement them, you will indeed see My victory. There is nothing to fear, for I have made you mighty in Me.

So rise up in obedience and do all the things I command you to do. I am thrusting you into a place of victory. I am making you one who will overcome as you follow Me, so follow Me into battle without fear. Know that I shall surely glorify My name through you and cause you to prevail, for I have made you mighty in Me.

BARNABAS: Guds församling med dess lärjungar behöver påminnas om exousia-perspektivet. När vi - inte så sällan - tappar ögonmärket, då är det bra att få hjälp att få hakan lyft...

Att få ha förtroendet att leva i delegerad auktoritet från Himlen är en ljuvlig härlighetens vindil som skänker doften av Kristi välluktande rökelse. Den doften är vår kallelse. Att få vara liv till liv, men också död till död...

Ja, det perspektivet behöver vi få tag på. Speciellt vi skandinavier som länge levt under oket av Jante. Men det är slut med det nu i Jesu namn!
Hörde att Birger Skoglund hade predikat om makten och kraften i Jesu blod igårkväll samtidigt som detta inlägg las ut. Och en god vän till mig som är pastor och som jag hade skickat inlägget till, skulle predika över temat "Guds makt" i söndagsgudstjänsten idag! Det verkar som om detta med Guds makt och den till oss delegerade auktoriteten är något som ligger på Guds hjärta för en tid som denna.
