BELIEVER’S AUTHORITY AND DOMINION IN CHRIST: Col.2:6-10. As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in Him. Rooted and built up in Him and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in Him dwelleth all the fullness of Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in Him, which is the head of all principalities and power. Luke.10:19. Behold I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the powers of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you. The believer’s authority and dominion is in Christ Jesus our Lord and Saviour. When a sinner realizes his or her sinfulness, repents and confess them to the Lord and ask for forgiveness and accepts Christ into his or her heart by faith as Lord and Saviour his or her sins are forgiven and he becomes a new creation old things passes away and all things becomes new in his life. Such a person is given the power of son-ship. John.1:12. He receives power, authority and dominion. When we talk of authority and dominion what does it means? It is a delegated power and right to act on behalf of another person, while dominion is authority to be in control and in-charge. So then the authority and dominion of the believers is from above from the Lord Himself. He has given us the power to act on His behalf and to be in control in this world. He said whatever ye shall bind on earth will be bond in heaven and whatever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Mt.18:18-19. We can manifest this authority and dominion over Satan, sickness, diseases, negative situations, nature etc. Rom.8:31, 37. What shall we say to these things? If God be for us who can be against us? Nay in all these things we are more than conquerors. The believer’s authority and dominion is effective as long as he abides and remains in Christ. John.15:4-7. The Lord said without me ye can do nothing. Rom.16:20. And the very God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
