TRUE SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY BY ROY RODEN
God’s love is the foundation for true spiritual authority. Out titles do not reveal God’s love; they are how we are called to function. Our position in the church or ministry does not reveal the love of God, only where responsibility is given. Without love, out titles and positions are merely nothing but symbols and noise, the manifestation of the establishment of men.
God’s love is revealed in the person of Jesus. The power of His authority works by love that delivers people from oppression and heals their mind and bodies from their afflictions. His love reveals the truth that sets the captives free, imparts peace and joy in the Spirit, for such is the Kingdom of heaven. His love is the authority to bring redemption, reconciliation, restoration and renewal that reveal the manifestation of His glory.
Our mandate is to be rooted and ground in His love that we may be filled with all the fullness of God (Eph. 3:17-19). Love is the key to do the works that Jesus did in the power of the Spirit. Our call is to abide in God who is love, until we become on earth as He is in heaven – that of love (1 John 4:16-17).
The greatest love every displayed was revealed by Christ at Calvary. The greatest power ever released upon the earth was by Christ upon the cross. Because of His great love for the world, His death and resurrection released the power that has authority even over death. As we abide in His love as joint heirs with Jesus, we are partakers of His authority. Jesus said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me” go ye therefore….(Mathew 28:18).
In other words, “My father has given this authority to me, I now give it to you.”
As Jesus said upon the cross, “It is finished.” As we go forth from the place of His victory abiding in His love, our lives testify to His authority with signs wonders that Jesus is alive and has risen, who sits at the right hand of the Father.
The Father’s desire is for His people to minister His love in the power of the Spirit that reveals Christ and Kingdom on earth as in heaven. Seek His love and your life will be empowered by the Spirit with true spiritual authority. His love is your authority and His love never fails. .
As always, rise and shine for your light has come, and His glory has risen upon you! (Is. 60:1)
