Luke 10:19, AMP “Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you”
The Name of Jesus has been given to the church as a resource, by which the church can draw to meet every need in life. Jesus gave to every believer the use of His Name, saying “and these signs shall follow them that believe in my Name…” (Mark 16:17). Every child of God needs to know that they have a right to use the Name of Jesus in prayer and in trampling over everything that seeks to exalt itself above the knowledge of God. There is no principality that can subdue a believer that has learned the resources aback the Name of Jesus, and has so learned to appropriate the use of that Name in satisfying every need.
In Luke 10:19 Jesus gives His disciples “authority”, the authority given is appropriated by the use of His name. His says in John 14:12-13, that the very same works He did, we would do. We are able to do the same works by the use of His Name. Demon forces, psychics, witchcraft, physical challenges, mental challenges, or any form of exertion that is not of God, the believer has the authority to trample under feet, and bring in subjection to the Name of Jesus.
What a staggering promise the Father has given to us through His son. The Name Jesus breathed in prayer stands as an open check to draw on. It’s a check that cannot be returned NSF. Not convinced? See what is unveiled in Colossians 2:9-10 “for in Him the fullness of the godhead dwells bodily, and you are complete in Him who is the head over all principality and powers” He reveals that if you are in Christ, you have the fullness of His life. Just like the fullness (every resource) of the Godhead dwells in Him, you are filled with the fullness of the Godhead. Just like He is above every spiritual authority, you are also. By virtue of this, all that is needed to meet the demands in the use of His name is available unto you. Oh what a glorious thought!
