RHEMA 11/25/13  REAL AUTHORITY IS SUBMISSION

HEARD:  It all makes sense.  To see as you do, prophet alignment.  Who and what is your plumbline? 

 

HEARD:  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 likewise.

 

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.

 

PIX:  I saw a kitchen counter. 

 

HEARD:  Real authority is submission.

 

VISION:  I saw a girl and she was kneeling down beneath an apple tree in a meadow.  She was cupping some seeds in her hand.

 

[Lord what are the seeds?]

 

PIX:  I saw the dark blue menu bar on my website.

 

HEARD:  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.

 

SUBMIT Ė To be under obedience

NT:5293

hupotasso (hoop-ot-as'-so); from NT:5259 and NT:5021; to subordinate; reflexively, to obey:

KJV - be under obedience (obedient), put under, subdue unto, (be, make) subject (to, unto), be (put) in subjection (to, under), submitself unto.

 

NT:5259

hupo (hoop-o'); a primary preposition; under, i.e. (with the genitive case) of place (beneath), or with verbs (the agency or means, through); (with the accusative case) of place (whither [underneath] or where [below] or time (when [at]):

KJV - among, by, from, in, of, under, with. In comp. it retains the same general applications, especially of inferior position or condition, and specifically, covertly or moderately.

 

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 authority He 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 Israel! 

 

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 world.
 

AUTHORITY

NT:1849

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, strength.

  

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 ten cities.
