CHRISTIANS WITHOUT AUTHORITY

Most Christians have no spiritual authority, they are powerless against satan. They cannot stop sinning. They cannot stop watching pornography, cannot stop lusting, cannot resist temptation, cannot stop lying, cheating, fornicating. They cannot overcome because they are walking in their own power, not the power of the Holy Spirit. 
Those who follow Jesus, under guidance of the Holy Spirit, have the authority to overcome all things. They have the authority to cast out satan and set the captives free, but if they turn from Jesus and compromise with sin, with other people and with the world, they lose their authority. satan seduces the children of God to disobey Jesus, they become powerless, lose their authority and are destroyed.  
The apostle James wrote in James 4:1-10. “1What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you? Is not the source your pleasures that wage war in your members? 2You lust and do not have; so you commit murder. You are envious and cannot obtain; so you fight and quarrel. You do not have because you do not ask. 3You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures. 4You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. 5Or do you think that the Scripture speaks to no purpose: “He jealously desires the Spirit which He has made to dwell in us”? 6But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, “GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.” 7Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9Be miserable and mourn and weep; let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy to gloom. 10Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.”
If we purify ourselves of unrighteousness and worldliness, and submit ourselves to Jesus, He will give us the authority and the power to overcome sin, satan and the world. 
Repent. Purify yourself Submit to Jesus, obey His words, listen to and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Do not allow satan to seduce and disarm you through compromise with sin, disobedience and worldliness. satan will try all He can until the end to strip you of your power and authority, so that he can destroy you.
Turn to Jesus. Repent from the heart. He will accept you and empower you to overcome and stand in the evil day. Stay with Jesus, in submission to Him, or you will be destroyed. 
Only those who overcome, will enter the kingdom of heaven. Take heed of the words of Jesus in Revelation 2:4-7 ‘But I have this against you, that you have left your first love.5‘Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you and will remove your lampstand out of its place—unless you repent. 7‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God.’
Are we doing the first deeds? Are we submitted to Jesus and walking in His authority, in obedience to Him? Are we overcoming?
May Jesus bless you.
