Here are the Scriptures I referenced on my first Authority Video. Enjoy them over coffee with the Lord.
Except for Ephesians 5:1, the Scriptures referenced from the Book of Ephesians are grouped together. These are Holy Spirit breathed prayers that Paul penned, and prayed for us. I’ve prayed the Ephesians prayers over myself for many years. They’re a good place to begin when learning about the authority Jesus died to give us.
Unless otherwise noted, all Scripture is from the New King James Version.
“Therefore be imitators of God as dear children” (Ephesians 5:1).
“So the Lord said, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea’ and it would obey you” (Luke 17:6).
“For if by one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through One, Jesus Christ“ (Romans 5:17).
“Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all (as it is written, I have made you a father of many nations) in the presence of Him who he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as thought they did” (Romans 4:16, 17).
“And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it” (Colossians 2:15 KJV).
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father” (John 14:12).
“And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, I believed and therefor I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak”(2 Corinthians 4:13).
“But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you” (Romans 8:11).
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light” and there was light” (Genesis 1:1-3 NKJV).
Genesis Chapters 1 and 2 are about how God created our world. Genesis 3 is the fall of man.
“So then faith comes by hearing, and by hearing the word of God” (Romans 10:17).
“And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 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” (Mark 16:17-18).
“He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins” (Colossians 1:13).
“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes or your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all” (Ephesians 1:17-23).
“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:4-10).
Thank you for visiting my website. Remember to take your authority daily. If you join my group I won’t bombard your inbox. I don’t like it when people do that to me. I blog on occasion, at the direction of the Lord. I will however post updates about new videos and about taking the authority Jesus died to give us. You won’t want to miss them! Shalom.
