Father, we receive more of Your presence in our lives today

The following excerpt is taken from The Believers’ Authority by Kenneth Hagin:

What Is Authority?

The translators of the King James Version translated many words consistently, but not the Greek words for “power” and “authority.”

For example, in the King James Version, Jesus says in Luke 10:19, “Behold, I give you POWER to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the POWER of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

Although the word “power” is used twice in this verse, two different words are found in the original Greek. What Jesus is talking is about the power of the devil – demons, evil spirits, and all his cohorts. We need to realize that we’ve got authority over them!

Does the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ have (or need) any less authority today than it had in the first century? It would be preposterous to think so, wouldn’t it?

The value of our authority rests on the power that is behind that authority. Paul told believers to be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might (Eph. 6:10). That means you can step out in front of the devil, hold up your hand, and tell him not to come any closer. Use your authority! Once in England, Smith Wigglesworth was standing on a street corner waiting for a bus. A woman came out of an apartment house, and a little dog ran out behind her. She said, “Honey, you’re going to have to go back.” The dog didn’t pay any attention to her. He just wagged his tail and rubbed up against her affectionately. She said, “Now, dear, you can’t go.” The little dog wagged his tail and rubbed up against her again.

About that time, the bus arrived. The woman stomped her foot and yelled, “Get!” The dog tucked his tail between his legs and took off.

Wigglesworth said he hollered out loud without even thinking, “That’s the way you’ve got to do with the devil!”

Let me point out something to you here. You don’t just exercise spiritual authority on behalf of other people per se; you’ve got to have the manifestation of the Spirit of God. That’s why many are failing. They are trying to deal with spirits without the word of knowledge, discerning of spirits, or any unction of the Holy Ghost.

When Jesus once talked to me about the devil, demons, and demon possession, He used as an example the girl possessed with a spirit of divination. She followed Paul and Silas around Philippi “for many days,” according to Acts 16:18, saying, ” … These men are the servants of the most high God …. ” (v. 17). Jesus asked me this question: “Do you know why Paul didn’t deal with that spirit the first day?” I said, “No, I really don’t. I’ve wondered about it. Why didn’t Paul, an apostle, a man of God, a man of authority, just take authority over that evil spirit the first day?” Jesus said, “He had to wait for the manifestation of the Spirit; he had to wait until the Spirit of God gave him discerning of spirits.”

You see, you can run the devil away from you or your house anytime. If a person is on your premises, you also have authority over him. But when you get away from where your domain is, the evil spirits have a right to be there, because Satan is the god of this world! That’s the reason Paul had to wait many days to deliver the demon-possessed girl. He didn’t command that spirit to leave her the first day she began following him. He waited, and when the right time came, he spoke to that spirit, and it came out of her.
