Are You Ready for a “Mission Possible”? "He
[Jesus] said to them, “I watched Satan fall from heaven like a lightning flash. Look, I have given you the authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy; nothing will ever harm you. However, don’t rejoice in this, that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”" ~ Luke 10:18-20
Have you ever thought about the Great Commission, when Jesus commanded His disciples to “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel”
as being a “mission impossible”
? But it isn’t, because of what comes with the mission.
You see, Jesus said that all power, authority, and dominion is given unto Him in heaven and earth (Matthew 28:18-20)
. Dominion was first given to man, but man gave it over to the devil in the Garden of Eden. Jesus received it back from the Father and gave that authority to each of us. He has given that commission and transferred that power to us as His ambassadors.
• Does Jesus have authority over the devil? Yes. Then so do you.
• Does Jesus have the victory? Yes. Then you have the victory.
• Is Jesus Christ enthroned? (See Ephesians 1:20)
Yes. Then you are enthroned. “We are seated with Him in heavenly places” (Ephesians 2:6)
. The victory is yours through Jesus Christ.
How can you go through your day today, confident as an ambassador with a commission from your King, that He will give you the victory? ~ excerpt from: "Love Worth Finding", with Pastor Adrian Rogers
