Jesus' Authority Was Prophesied by Isaiah

Isaiah 61:1 (The Amplified Bible)   "THE SPIRIT of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good tidings to the meek, the poor, and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up and heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound"

Jesus fulfilled Isaiah's prophesy above when at the start of His ministry He quoted it in a Nazarene synagogue.  

(Luke 4:18-19)

The Holy Spirit Empowers Believers

1 Corinthians 11:1 (The Amplified Bible)  "PATTERN YOURSELVES after me [follow my example], as I imitate and follow Christ (the Messiah)."

Acts 4:29-31 (New International Version)   "Now, Lord...enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness.  Stretch out your hand to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus."  After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly."

Lost Authority Restored

Many are not aware that mankind had lost their authority in the Garden of Eden.  Jesus' death and resurrection restored our authority.

The Spirit of Faith


Faith Appropriates Kingdom Rights

Citizens of a country have certain rights.

An American Citizen for example, has rights that the Constitution guarantees. These rights in the constitution are not extended to everyone. You must be an American citizen to apply these rights to your situation.

Christians have dual citizenship.

As a citizen of the Kingdom of God, we have Kingdom rights.

As a Christian, healing and wellness are fundamental rights of His Covenant. They are Gods will for you.  

If you are a citizen of the Kingdom of God, the Bible says you have a right to be healed.

Faith Speaks

Jesus Tells Us to Speak To Our Mountains

Mark 11:22-24 (New International Version) "Have faith in God," Jesus answered. "I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 

  • We must believe we're received it WHEN WE PRAY not WHEN WE RECEIVE.
  • We must have confidence in God when we pray.  This comes through relationship.
  • We must have confidence in ourselves.  This comes when we understand our New Identity In Christ.

Scriptural Examples Where Power Comes Through Speaking

Jesus talked to a fig tree and told it to die  (Mark 11:14,20-22 NIV)
Then he (Jesus) said to the tree, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again." And his disciples heard him say it... In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots.  Peter remembered and said to Jesus, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!"  "Have faith in God," Jesus answered. 

Jesus talked to the wind and waves (Mark 4:39 NIV)
He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, "Quiet! Be still!" Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.

Peter healed a crippled man (Acts 3:6-7 NIV)
Then Peter said, "Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk."   Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man's feet and ankles became strong. 

Joshua commanded the sun to stand still (Joshua 10:12-13 (NIV)
On the day the LORD gave the Amorites over to Israel, Joshua said to the LORD in the presence of Israel: "O sun, stand still over Gibeon, O moon, over the Valley of Aijalon."   So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jashar. The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day. 

Peter raised Dorca from the dead (Acts 9:36-40 NIV)
In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (which, when translated, is Dorcas), who was always doing good and helping the poor.
About that time she became sick and died… Peter went with them, and when he arrived he was taken upstairs to the room. …
…he got down on his knees and prayed.  Turning toward the dead woman, he said, "Tabitha, get up." She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter she sat up.
