The Professor began the days teaching writing the following on the board:
Everything Satan has…
He was able to persuade the first Adam to sin against God’s will, and so gained access to man and the earth.
JESUS CHRIST: The Last Adam (1 Corinthians 15:45)
Satan tried his best to persuade Jesus in the desert, offering Him the kingdoms of the world and all their glory.
“All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.” Then Jesus said to him, ‘Away with you, Satan! For it is written, “You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’ ” (Matthew 4:9-10)
Resistance was required for Jesus to overcome His enemy…words needed to be spoken. Jesus spoke scripture!
He did not start begging Father for deliverance.
THE GOSPEL AND THE AUTHORITY OF THE BELIEVER
The Church of the LORD Jesus Christ is empowered with the same power that raised Jesus from the dead.
The Holy Spirit raised Jesus.
The Holy Spirit is within you.
Resurrection power, power that makes alive something dead, dwells in your spirit — right now!
THERE’S A NEW SHERIFF IN TOWN!
You have been deputized with power and given armor, weapons, and use of the name above all names: Jesus Christ! You are to enforce your rights as a citizen of God’s Kingdom against the enemy.
Use your Sword…the living, powerful Word of God against him. Release words!
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
“…God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.” (Acts 10:38)
“But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.” (1 John 2:20)
WAKE UP CHURCH!
Most Christians gather together every week, hear a sermon, and then go home not knowing anything about their authority over the enemy. They keep begging God to help them with this or that, but God will not do what He told YOU to do.
That doesn’t mean we go to the other extreme and think we have to depend on ourselves. No!
We rely on speaking scripture and we depend upon the power of the Holy Spirit within us to take authority over the enemy.
Heal the sick! Cast out devils!
“Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4)
Everything the devil has — he stole! That means someone allowed it.
If you came into your house and saw a snake in your room, would you allow it to take up residence there…ignoring it day in and day out? Of course not! Then DO something about it!
“Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you.” (Luke 10:19 AMPC)
“And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.’” (Matthew 28:18) See also: 1 Peter 3:22.
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7)
“For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ…” (2 Corinthians 10:3-5)
“Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith…” (1 Peter 5:8-9)
Therefore, students, fight the good fight of faith. This is the victory that overcomes the world!
This is that…which has power…when YOU speak!
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” (Mark 11:23)
