Title: Greater Authority.
Text: Philippians 2:9-11.
9 “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Jesus was glorified by the Father after his death and resurrection; given a name that is highly exalted above every other name.
While Christ was on earth in the flesh, his disciples operated in His name and they achieved tremendous results. They came back rejoicing that demons were subject to them in his name.
Matt 10:1 “And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.”
Luke 10:17 “And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.”
How much more now that Christ is glorified by the Father and you have the Holy Spirit dwelling in you.
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. 13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”
You have more authority in the name of Jesus, because the Father has highly exalted Him. He has instructed us to operate in the authority of his name. Peter understood this in Acts 3:6, he commanded a lame man to walk in the name of Jesus.
Act 3:6 “Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.”
The AUTHORITY in Christ is for the church. Eph 1:22. Operate in it.
How God anointed (Your name) with the Holy Spirit and with power and now he/she goes about doing good.
Halleluyah, Glory to Jesus
