Believers Authority – Yield to Wield !

It’s great to have authority..it really is. To be able to say something and have it happen..sort of like a Police or Army Officer a Lawyer or Doctor…these professionals have authority of some sort.

What about everyday Jack or Jill? What authority does he or she have? They don’t have years of study or police academy behind them and certain powers invested in them by the Law, the Medical board or such..who’s authority do they have, in any?

I think about the believers authority – indeed we have authority, we do – the Bible tells us so…right from Genesis through to Revelation the Bible speaks of the authority of mankind and “to take dominion over”… it is truly a marvellous and wonderful thing that God has given to mankind…however, this authority is not to be trifled with…and if we are unaware of the true nature of this authority – we may appear to have some kind of dominion over – which becomes ‘’lording over’’ or “hording over” when actually we are complete “push over’s” – that do not resemble in any way, the original intent of the authority that God ordained for mankind to wield.

So, back to the earlier examples…like the Doctor, Lawyer, Army or Police Officer or any other person who walks in a certain authority – first of all, they had to pledge allegiance to something..to a code of practice, a legal entity, to their country or a governing body.  The authority is assigned and endowed upon a person – because they have pledged their allegiance to that authority. So, in order to have authority over something – we must first come under an authority.

The logical conclusion, as you have probably already work-out, is that whatever authority you are currently under is the authority to which you are subject to and the extent to which you are able to exercise authority yourself.

”Ok then…so I don’t much feel like I have any authority” (I hear someone say…)

Probably because you are not subject to any real authentic authority in your life at present.  To the extent that you are yielded to authentic Godly authority – will actually determine the extent you yourself have authority over anything in any realm at all.  (Stick that in your pillow and plump it!)

We must first yield to the Ultimate Authority – to God. To be found in and under His ever-Loving Authority and this then will be the very Biblical Authority to which we are intentioned for…to wield with the utmost Wisdom and Strength and therein is the essence of the Believers Authority.

In conclusion, Luke 10:20 (The Message) states clearly:

 Jesus said, “I know. I saw Satan fall, a bolt of lightning out of the sky. See what I’ve given you? Safe passage as you walk on snakes and scorpions, and protection from every assault of the Enemy. No one can put a hand on you. All the same, the great triumph is not in your authority over evil, but in God’s authority over you and presence with you. Not what you do for God but what God does for you—that’s the agenda for rejoicing.”

Our Authority comes from directly from God – the fact that our names are written in the book of Life, that we are sealed in Him and therefore, from that basis, the Authority we wield is straight from Him.

Yield to His Authority to Wield in His Authority!

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization.

No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
