The first thing to understanding the spiritual battle is to know your commission on earth and how to move about in your God given power and authority. We must operate in the fullness of His power!
Today lets focus on our commission and the spiritual battle that is at hand.
As Matthew 10:7-8 said we are called to heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, and cast out devils, just as Jesus did on earth so are we to do. Did you know that we where made in the same image of God so we have the same power that Jesus did through the Holy Spirit. As modern day disciples we have the power of the living God working in and through us. This verse was not just for the 12 disciples but it is a guideline for us to follow today.
First thing first, we must have a kingdom mindset. What does this mean? The Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Heaven refer to the same place. Everything that heaven has is also available for us on earth, you just have to be willing to reach out and grab it. Jesus wants you to rule and reign on earth. We are children of the Most High and we have all the tools that we need to defeat the enemy, He gave us the play book when He gave us the Bible. You must spend time in the word in order to be equipped for what the world will try to throw at you. Remember that whatever Jesus did on earth you can do also. If it is in the Bible then you can do it also, if it is not in the Bible then you can not do it.
How do we operate in this power? As Acts 1:8 says, we will receive power when we call out for the Holy Spirit to enter into us. When Jesus ascended into Heaven He left the Holy Spirit here on earth to guide us. All we have to do is ask for Him, and you will receive the Holy Ghost power! Amen, that is how you are able to fulfill the commission here on earth.
May the Lord bless you and keep you, may He make His face shine upon you!
