Highest Authority

In my early years as a young believer I had a very tough time grasping or understanding my authority as a believer.  I was still very timid, as the way I was before I became a Christian.  Some people do have a radical and instantaneous transformation. Because I did not, I always thought something was wrong with me, and I doubted my salvation for a season. My family thought I was the same, just that I spent a lot of time reading the bible. I was not very vocal about my salvation.

Sometimes it takes our whole life to learn some things.  God has not given us a spirit of timidity as it says in 2 Timothy 1:7. It took me many years to overcome that timidity. I haven’t arrived but I am closer to understanding the boldness and courage that Jesus has given me. I will tell you this much timidity or shyness doesn’t come from God. There is a big difference in being shy and having nothing to say. Some translations of the bible say the word fear…God has not given the spirit of fear.   Fear, timidity, and shyness comes from the devil. God gave us the ability to talk and be vocal

I had a salvation experience at the age of 18. I felt cleansed and delivered in my heart and mind, but Jesus has a lot to teach me through the Holy Spirit about walking out my authority. Behold God has given us a Spirit of POWER….The Holy Spirits nature not only resonates holiness but dynamite power!!!

Jesus has given us the same authority over all demons and sickness according to the bible. We have been given the power to enforce orders and enforce obedience over the spirit realm!!! As Holy Spirit filled believers, we are royal captains or commanders (kings and priests) over legions in the spirit realm!!! 

Captains give “orders” and those under that command are obeyed. that is what true authority is. Luke 10:19 says that Jesus has given us all authority over serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt or harm us. 

Satan has no power, he has been rendered powerless over a true Believer. You know what?  WE can COMMAND satan out of our homes, and families and churches and our lives and HE MUST GO!!! His kingdom came to a end when Jesus said, “It is finished!!!”

Sadly though the enemy has as much power as you give him in your life……Satan can only lie and scheme and plot….Jesus is the way the truth and the life….Satan can only attempt to kill, steal and destroy. Jesus came to give us a full abundant life. His Holy Spirit helps us to experience it!!! Praise God, dont let the rocks cry out!!! Praise you ‘Jesus’ for you are the Alpha and Omega!!!

Maybe you are being railroaded by the enemy of your soul! He is not someone to tangle or party with. If you get entangled in his mess, he can give you a miserable life and existance!!! If you cant get out of the enemies clutches you need to seek and submit to spiritual help…any witchcraft or the occult or satanism or quiji boards or tarot cards are the devils satanic tools…You cannot experience GOD calling the psychic hotline!!!

I dont know who this is for….I feel a strong unction in the Holy Spirit all over this post and my typing…It is not too late, reach out to GOD and get help. Call that pastor, get on the phone and call that church number. If you are a young believer I hope you see that you have the authority to “command” that demon harrasing you to leave you alone IN JESUS’ NAME, that demon must obey!!!

If you need someone to talk to, my email is richardhicks50@rocketmail.com. God has put me online for such a time as this, I will pray for you that you will overcome and not be overwhelmed.

For we do not wrestle with flesh and blood, but with all the dark forces of the unseen realm in heavenly places. That is my paraphrase.


In the Love of Jesus,

  1. I love this post Richard! To any of you who may be new to Richard’s blogs or don’t know him — we have been friends (and only growing in the Lord more and more with each passing year since 2013) for alittle over 6 years now. He is the real deal and really cares about his brothers and sisters in Christ which is why he posted his e-mail. Not many folks would publically post their e-mail but Richard is in the business of surrendering to God and being there for anyone he can help. I love what you said about having the authority to tell Satan to get out of our homes and families in Jesus’s names. I also love the part about not turning to a psychic hot-line and that turning to ouija boards; tarrot cards; satanism / witchcraft is serious business that will only get one more tangled up with the enemy of our souls. That is so right. We need to cling to our Savior, Jesus Christ and pray to God the Father always being mindful that our enemy is lurking and prowling around like a lion waiting to devour us. Thank you Richard so much for always being faithful and writing from your heart and sharing God’s wisdom with us.
