Jurisdiction

It’s All About Jesus!

JURISDICTION by SHELLY MATHIS:

I had a vision of an officer of the law dressed in uniform and belted with weapons. He was standing in the center of his assigned jurisdiction.

Jurisdiction:

The legal power or authority of doing justice in cases of complaint; the power of executing the laws and distributing justice.

Power of governing or legislating.

The power or right of exercising authority.

The limit (boundaries) within which power may be exercised.

He knew the laws of the land and was appointed to execute them. He was trained to discern those who violated the law and empowered with authority to arrest and bring them to justice. Thus he was equipped with all the training and tools he needed to fulfill his commission; however, the officer seemed to be paralyzed or asleep on his feet while the criminals wreaked havoc about him.

I heard the Lord say, “You, My people, are like this officer. You possess jurisdiction – the power of governing – your body, soul, spirit, and all that lies within the realm of your responsibility. You know My Word and by it can discern between good and evil, truth and error. The Holy Spirit Himself dwells in you, and you are empowered with My authority. Your commission is to exercise it over every work of darkness that seeks to invade your jurisdiction.

“And yet the enemy has convinced many of you that you do not have the ability to identify, arrest, and execute My judgment against him – and thus make him stop. This lie has emasculated your spiritual power and annihilated your threat against him.

“I am awakening afresh those who have been paralyzed and calling you forth to remember your spiritual identity. Do whatever it takes to convince yourself of the reality of your delegated authority. Learn it, practice it, and exercise it to remove the enemy from your areas of responsibility. This personal revival will act as a trigger that will generate the breakthrough you have desired and needed to defeat the enemy’s attacks against you. That is your commission; do the work!”

Luke 9:1-2   When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases,  and he sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.

John 5:30 

I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me.

Don’t Let The Devil Gain Any Ground In Your Heart

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns 12/22/11:

The enemy has risen up with a vengeance to destroy your faith and bring you down to the depths of despair. Don’t let the devil gain any ground in your heart. He will take advantage of your self-focus and will take you down in condemnation. You are not a victim of his schemes; you are designed and empowered to be victorious over all the work of evil against you. Rise up in your most holy faith, and stand your ground against these attacks by maintaining your position in My Spirit, says the Lord. Do not be afraid.

Colossians 2:13-15 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:42 AM.  Please forgive one Lord Jesus.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Luke 12 – Jesus Warns About Hypocrisy.  Thank You Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS
January 7, 2010:

Be still, and know that I am God. There is nothing too difficult for Me, says the Lord. I have all power and authority, and I have empowered you to do all that I have set you to do. Refuse discouragement. Rise up in the knowledge that I am with you to accomplish My purposes in your place on the earth. Continue with a steady pace, and do not take your emotional reactions too seriously, for the enemy will use them against you to bring you down. Be strong and proceed in the Caleb anointing of courage.

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

One may have awakened this morning.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have been encouraged by the message.  One may be in a place where one may be waiting on the Lord.  One may know that the Lord is quite capable.

One may have entered one prayer closet on time.  One may have begun one’s prayer time with praises to the Lord with song.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for today’s scripture.  One may have opened one’s Bible to Isaiah 58.

One may have left one’s prayer closet and logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Lord, thank you for answering each prayer request, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.
