The Authority of the Believer
Many of us know that Jesus said that He gave us His authority. Most of us, however, find ourselves hindered in properly exercising the authority we have over spiritual things. This course seeks to uncover keys and hindrances to walking in our Godly inheritance.
This is not another discourse on how people have, and should exercise, authority over one another, but a look at the spiritual authority every believer has been given in Christ.
We first taught these principles as a six week course in England. This seminar is based on that course, but brings some fresh insights that we have gleaned over the years and adds some new material.
Session 1 - The Need to Understand Our Authority
Many believers know that Jesus gave His disciples authority, but few realize that the same authority He gave them applies to us today. This session explores why we need to understand the authority we have been given.
Session 2 - The Five "I Wills" of Lucifer
Taking authority over the enemy requires that we understand the enemy's strategies and stated goals. This session looks at five things that Lucifer declared that he would do.
Session 3 - Definitions and Words
This session defines the words used in Scripture concerning our authority.
Session 4 - Types and Sources of Authority
In this session, we look at two different types of authority and where they come from.
Session 5 - The "In Christ" Position
Many people are surprised when they find out how many things are available to us "in Christ." We look at some of them in this session.
Session 6 - Abiding in Christ
In this session, we take a look at what it means to abide in Him.
Session 7 - Hindrances to the Flow of Authority
We have been given the same authority that Jesus walked in on this earth. Why aren't we seeing miracles?
Session 8 - More Hindrances to the Flow of Authority
We look at some more things that might hinder us from walking in the fulness of all that Jesus has purchased for us.
Session 9 - Hindrances to Authority - Idolatry
In this session, we look at one of the major hindrances we face - idolatry.
Session 10 - The Idolatrous System
We take a look at the Scriptures and ask some hard questions. Could we be worshiping false gods without realizing that we are?
Session 11 - Nine Principles of Victory - Part 1
This is the first of two sessions that looks at nine principles that will help us walk in more freedom.
Session 12 - Nine Principles of Victory - Part 2
This is the second of two sessions that help us find more freedom.
Session 13 - Passover and the Power of the Blood
Few believers really understand how powerful the Blood of Jesus really is. This session looks at Passover, and how it set the stage for our liberty.
Session 14 - Exercising Our Authority
Authority is of no value unless it is used. This session gives some insight into how we can begin to walk in our authority.
Session 15 - The Call
