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
