Spiritual Authority – The Real Deal

Spiritual authority and spiritual power comes from the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, it does not come from knowledge. In the natural world knowledge is power but in the spiritual realm it is only the Spirit of God that defeats the forces of darkness, and if you do not have the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit in you and the power of the Holy Spirit then you are powerless against satan. You can fool yourself and you can fool other people, you can impress them with your Bible knowledge BUT YOU CANNOT IMPRESS OF FOOL SATAN dear friend, you will sorely lose out!
I read from Acts 19:11, “And God was performing extraordinary miracles by the hands of Paul, so that handkerchiefs or aprons were even carried from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out. But also some of the Jewish exorcists, who went from place to place, attempted to name over those who had the evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, “I adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preaches.” And seven sons of one Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. And the evil spirit answered and said to them, “I recognize Jesus, and I know about Paul, but who are you?” And the man, in whom was the evil spirit, leaped on them and subdued all of them and overpowered them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. And this is became known to all, both Jews and Greeks, who lived in Ephesus; and fear fell upon them all and the name of the Lord Jesus was being magnified.”
It is only the Spirit of God that dwells in a true disciple of Jesus Christ that destroys the work of the devil and that demonstrates the power of God. It is not by power, earthly power, not by might, not by knowledge but it is by the Spirit of God that people are delivered from the powers of darkness. There are many fake exorcisms, there are people who act, who play around, both from the side of the exorcist and those who are being “delivered.” Dear friend, if you do not have the power of God in you it could happen to you what happened to these seven sons of Sceva, that they were overpowered by the person who had the demon in him. We cannot stand against the devil in our own power. We need to have the power of the Holy Spirit of God in us and we cannot fake. We cannot use Bible scriptures, quote a bunch of scriptures at the devil and now he will run. He will know straight out that you don’t have the power of God you. The power of God is in those who truly have the Spirit of God dwelling in them, who are walking with Jesus Christ and who are doing His will.
You cannot fake spiritual authority or the power of God when you meet up with the real powers of darkness.
May Jesus bless you.
