Man’s Position of Responsibility – God placed man on earth as His representative. God was the owner, and Man was His manager. Man answered to no one but to God Himself. With this responsibility came the necessary authority and dominion. Man was God’s under lord, God’s face and voice to the world. As long as man carried this mantel, man’s word would be in all respects the very word of God.
The Word of God – The Bible is as much the true living word of God as would be if God came to earth and spoke to us directly. It is still the word of God, even when we repeat it out of our mouths. The more we take in the word the more we become like Him. The more we become like Him, the more we are able to walk like Him. We walk in authority when we walk under the authority of the word of God.
“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. John 15:7
And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them, and confirmed the word by the signs that followed. Mark 16:20
The Holy Spirit Within – The Old Testament believers could only have the Holy Spirit upon them, but we can now have the Holy Spirit within us. The Holy Spirit was the source of Jesus’ power, and He is to be the source of our power.
“..but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.” Acts 1:8
Man has power because of God has sanctioned him to have power. Read more – The Source of a Christian’s Power
Is there anything called ancestral curse and how does it affect a born again christian
David – Yes, I do believe it exists and yes it can affect a born again Christian to a certain degree. Break the power of it in Jesus Name. Go to our Authors page and read some of the articles by Hagin, MacMillan, Simpson. And read our article ‘You’ve Got to Have Hope’ by Derek Prince.
You have the power now through the name of Jesus to take authority over hindering spirits sent to hurt you and your family. Rex
In the Jewish translation of Gen. the Bible says God created “Mankind in his own image, he created them male and FEMALE” It also says he told THEM to dominate the earth.
Therefore, it has always been that Men and Women are to have that authority. Not just men. This is why I believe that when men say women can’t preach the word of God, they shut up 90% of the body of Christ. Which makes the evil one happy.
Yes, most of the congregation today are women … next time you are in church look around.
Angela – “Man’ here means both men and women.
