Jesus has told us to behold.
Behold all the Words that Jesus spoke to us, in other words, regard and observe to do them. Let me prove this to you from Luke 10:19, "Behold, I have given you the authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you." Until we behold these words of authority given to us, we can't possibly tread upon and over all the power of the enemy. He will instead continue to tread upon us.
So what does authority mean? First and foremost authority is the freedom to decide or a right to act and react without hindrance. Secondly, authority refers to the power, ability, and capability to complete an action. Thirdly, authority is known as a delegated authority in the context of a warrant, license, and authorization to perform. And lastly, authority connotes the sphere in which all authority is demonstrated. This is known as God's exousia power... The power where God has established spheres or the place or environment within which a person or thing exists in the world, such as our civil government where they have influence.
Where we exist in the world is our place to do great things with the God's power. Jesus, God's only begotten Son has given to everyone who believes and follows Him the power and authority to defeat Satan and all evil spirits. And it is about time that believers rise and activate the power that He has delegated to them the moment they are born again.
Remember today that the authority of Jesus has been conferred upon you through the Word of God—Jesus. It's part of your spiritual inheritance. You can start a spiritual revolution with other believers who have been commissioned to make disciples. He tells us in Matthew 28:18-20, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Decree It: Jesus Christ has given me power and authority. Jesus is with me always, even to the end of the age. I will go in the power and strength that I have to make followers of Jesus of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. I will teach others to observe and to do all that Jesus has commanded me. I will teach with my words and by my life. I don't have a spirit of fear. God has given me a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. I am an overcomer and victorious in Christ Jesus.
