11/25/13 REAL AUTHORITY IS SUBMISSION
It all makes sense. To see as you do, prophet
alignment. Who and what is your plumbline?
Your authority, do what I tell you to do.
Itís time we talk about that. Razor sharp.
John 5:19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them,
Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing
of himself, but what he sees the Father do: for
whatsoever things he does, these also does the Son
John 5:30 I can of my own self do nothing: as I hear,
I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not my
own will, but the will of the Father who has sent me.

Real authority is submission.

Rhema. Itís carried in My Spirit. Thatís
the secret of the power. The wind carries the seeds.
And they are planted into the hearts of people. They
bring forth a good crop, some 30, some 60 and some 100.
Matthew 13:7-8 And some fell among thorns; and the
thorns sprung up, and choked them: 8 But others fell
into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some a
hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
SUBMISSION: I have mentioned before about when
the Lord opened my eyes to see that this scripture was
written in chronological order: You must first submit
to God before you resist the devil.
James 4:7-10 NKJV
Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will
flee from you. 8 Draw near to God and He will draw near
to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your
hearts, you double-minded. 9 Lament and mourn and weep!
Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to
gloom. 10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord,
and He will lift you up.

The level of our obedience directly connects with our
authority. Spiritual authority comes from learning
obedience and submission to the Lord and His Word.
The places where
authority is mentioned in scripture, it directly
connects with obedience:
Mark 1:25-28 NKJV
But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be quiet, and come
out of him!" 26 And when the unclean spirit had
convulsed him and cried out with a loud voice, he came
out of him. 27 Then they were all amazed, so that they
questioned among themselves, saying, "What is this?
What new doctrine is this? For with
commands even the unclean spirits, and
they obey Him."
28 And immediately His fame spread throughout all the
region around Galilee.
Matt 8:8-11 NKJV
The centurion answered and said, "Lord, I am not
worthy that You should come under my roof. But only
speak a word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I
also am a man under
authority, having soldiers under me. And I
say to this one, 'Go,' and he goes; and to another,
'Come,' and he comes; and to my servant,
'Do this,' and he does
it." 10 When Jesus heard it, He marveled,
and said to those who followed, "Assuredly, I say to
you, I have not found such great faith, not even in
Authority is the measure of delegated influence we have
been given in the spirit world. This is exercised over
demons and jurisdictions that operate in the unseen
exousia (ex-oo-see'-ah); from NT:1832 (in the sense of
ability); privilege, i.e. (subjectively) force,
capacity, competency, freedom, or (objectively) mastery
(concretely, magistrate, superhuman, potentate, token of
control), delegated influence:
KJV - authority, jurisdiction, liberty, power, right,
WORD TO PONDER: OBEDIENT ONES, YES YOU MAY 5/01/12
Obedient ones, I have heard your request for more. You
have been knocking on My door asking for increase. And
to the level of your obedience I AM saying YES. This is
a season where I AM focusing on your levels of
obedience. I AM longing to bring you into greater
authority, greater measure of influence that connects
with the greater power that I am about to release into
the earth. Now is the time to check your own heart and
OBEY where I have been knocking on your door. Release
the wrestling matches dear hearts, because I have
nothing but good in store for those who obey. Your
storms will calm and your enemies will back off to honor
your territory when you speak My Word. I know you want
this. Submit to My Word and the devil will flee from
You. Listen and obey there is no other way.
John 14:10-11 NKJV
Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the
Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not
speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in
Me does the works.
Luke 19:17 NKJV
And he said to him, 'Well done, good servant; because
you were faithful in a very little, have authority over
