Due to the presence of evil, suffering, sin, weakness, and failure, there is much anxiety and trepidation encumbering excellency of growth and development in the world community. Although many failed plans and devices have been advanced as a cure for our difficulties, there is a hidden solution to the human problem.
This hidden solution remains a mystery to much of the world’s population, Christians included, simply because human reasoning and ability has buried and covered it over through centuries of self reliance. Complexity and masses of data make it virtually impossible for people to choose this simple God given solution.
It would seem apparent that the church should have assumed full use of this God given solution, however, its penchant toward theologies and creedal doctrines has precluded, in large degree, its use of the very thing which speaks to the human problem.
Without doubt, the church has not taken hold on its mandate from Christ to use ” All authority… in heaven and earth” (Matthew 28:18). All authority is given unto Jesus as the head of the church for its use in carrying out the mission of bringing human beings out of sin, suffering, and disease which he initiated in the earth.
In addition, Jesus tells us in Mark 16:17-18, “And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover”. These powerful texts reveal the hidden solution to the human problem.
Countless numbers of people are lacking knowledge or are misinformed regarding this solution to their problems. Satan has robbed much of the church of its victorious testimony, its speaking in new tongues of deliverance, and its ability to lay hands on the sick, and see them recover.
When we come to belief in the Lord Jesus Christ, we receive these signs as confirmation of our ministry to the body of Christ and to a lost world. Do not allow Satan to hold you in fear, anxiety, and doubt. Remember that he is defeated, and through the Name of Jesus, you have dominion over him.
The authority of that Name gives you, the New Creation Person, mastery over demons, disease, and every problem you may face in life. Now you are joined with Christ, and in that union, you have perfect redemption, healing, and deliverance.
