I can see One on the throne… high above me in the sky ascending. His name is Jesus. And He reigns within me in the earth surrounding and inside me through the soul confounding authorities that stand against Him.
It’s a spiritual war. Peace sets in when His warriors refuse to settle for earthly accords and death-ridden territory. Instead they rise that the Kingdom of God may come in and renew the land.
Can you handle my authority? The power Jesus granted me?
“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Luke 10:19
Jesus was empowering His disciples to do greater things just as He said they would do in John chapter 14. They were His mouthpiece, His miracle workers, His teachers, His liberators, His demon extractors, His vessels of Holy Spirit power. It’s what He intended them to be. His power is in you… anointed by Him. Won’t you let Him overwhelm you with all He is…
His power is in me
can’t tread on me
I have authority
and the enemy
has to flee
gets near me
for the Son of God
is My highest
His power is in you… stop blocking it.
His mission is for you… stop rescinding it.
Take back the ground God claimed to make holy!
Enter His throne room…
Where God is the King.
His power heightens in the depths of you waiting to burst through.
Allow it to break through the limitations of the surface world. Into the spiritually dimensional world unfolding…
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities, powers and rules of darkness, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12
It’s in the Heavenly places…
When he fell from Heaven he enticed an uproar.
There’s only One throne. Who will you serve?
I had a dream recently…
There was a cluster of women in a dark room of a house. There was a woman up on a pedastol speaking and she said this: “don’t be a throne girl.” I could see a vision of a man in dark eerie shreds of rags and a torch by his side. He was a bad lord. A trafficking lord. And the girls were a part of the hostage. I realized the woman was telling the girls to stay away from him. But not for their protection. But to control them.
I spoke up loudly and got up on a chair interjecting “Yes be a throne girl! At the throne of Jesus Christ! He is your King!”
Then there was a lion circling the room. It was Jesus… He came to rescue them. And He was asking me to join in the mission with Him.
Will put your life at risk for the ones held hostage? That’s what it means to carry power. To defy authorities in the wicked realms of spiritual demons. Will you curse the demons and hail King Jesus? That His sons and daughters can come home safely?
“Don’t be a throne girl,” she said. Don’t approach the top. Don’t fight for yourself. Don’t think you can get close.
You can get closer to the real King. The only One who IS KING. Jesus Christ. And no man can keep you from Him.
Be a Throne Girl. With a capital “T.” A woman who enters the throne room of the holy of holies… because you can. And HE wants you to. Every since He tore the veil that leads us into where He dwells.
We live to please Jesus alone. Please God. Don’t please men when they scheme ahead of God and behind His back. He sees it. All of it.
The apostle Paul said be obedient sincerely to those who rule according to the flesh but “not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bond servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart as to the Lord and not to men.” Ephesians 6:6-7
When you become a follower of Jesus, it is possible to honor authority and also possibel to rattle authority. It depends on the spiritual makeup of the substance you interact with.
When kindred spirits connect, you accomplish both. Pleasing God and man. Because you both honor Him as King alone.
But when spirits of good and evil clash… you will rattle them. And you cannot compromise what you believe in order to keep the peace.
Flattering those in power to achieve a certain end is a travesty not a virtue. It’s wrong. God will not honor it.
“Nevertheless they flattered him with their mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues. For their heart was not right with Him, neither were they steadfast in His covenant.” Psalm 78:36-37
Flattery chooses to speak what isn’t true in order to gain something it doesn’t deserve. Flattery doesn’t speak from observation, but speaks from false motives. Psalm 78:36 says, “But they flattered him with their mouths; they lied to him with their tongues.” It’s not that the person does not deserve affirmation to be spoken, it’s that flattery is not an authentic expression of such affirmation. Flattery does not take time to notice the real and beautiful attributes of a person, but makes gradiose generalizations that it might receive favor for his or her own gain.
Never flatter anyone to get what you want. We honor Jesus and act according to what He asks of us. No matter what it costs us. Submitting to earthly authority is connected to God’s. It is merited inasmuch as it does not interfere with God’s authority. Once you are asked to do something that breaks God’s law, then you must refuse and choose to obey God instead. Even if it puts you in jeopardy.
“Whoever rebukes a man will afterward find more favor than he who flatters with his tongue.” Proverbs 28:23
But praise and encouragement are always genuine.
“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.” Proverbs 25:11
A God-breathed word soothes the heart.
“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11
I love how the apostle Paul points out here that they are already encouraging one another and building one another up. This is by His own teaching and example that they are following even in his absence because they have Jesus’ Holy Spirit within them to channel goodness and create fruits of the Spirit.
This is why God’s power is so important! You need God’s power to repel demons and produce good fruit in your heart. Then you become like a supernatural warrior in the spiritual realm.
Paul says in his letter to the church in Rome, “I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong— that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith.” Romans 1:11-12. Again, he highlights the value of encouragement and this goes both ways. Both authority figures and community members in the church must interact from a place of love and inspiration. Recognizing that we all carry powerful authority as God’s chosen beloveds in this world.
This is an important and integral key of healthy relationships: Encouragement and uplifting affirmation.
Seek to affirm. Much more than you rebuke, as the heart God created within a man or woman deserves to be treated with dignity. It’s in close intimate relationships where rebuke can be spoken and received genuinely because you have a kindred relationship built on love and trust. This is why rebuke from the Lord is meaninful and influential for our growth because we have an intimate relationship with Him.
God bestows the gift of His affirmation on you. An adornment of gifts and beauties He created to lavish upon you. Step into that and live freely from that place of royalty as Jesus’ Beloved.
God protects the ones who follow Him devoutly, not wavering with the demands of people but remaining steadfast to the mission at hand.
When you say yes to God… you are empowered to radically love and defend the ones he sends you to love.
But Jesus wants you…
Oh how He loves you more…
So grace His Throne. His love leads your course. A force to be reckoned with. God’s power is not a small stream we’re splashing in. It’s a gigantic volcanic fountain we’re generating.
“I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions…” He said.
Refresh the land!
So it can thrive again.
I stomped on every demon
hidden in secret
that kept them
how you love them to breathe
how You want them to dream
how You want them
to live free
it was Your love
that compelled me
for Your power
When you crush the devil’s head… every beautiful soul is set loose… They will see the Lord lifted high again.
Be a warrior for the Kingdom of Heaven.
Dance boldly into your destiny.
Assail every mountain with confidence.
March boldly into God’s throne room.
Encounter His love for you!
I can hear Him getting louder and louder… the Spirit of His power shattering bondage when we step up in power.
It’s why the Spirit rages… because He won’t let any force take away the freedom He gave you… to come close to Him. 🥰
“Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body.”
The King’s glory is seen when the enemy leaves.
“The Lord said to the serpent: ‘Her offspring shall crush your head and you will bruise His heel.’” Genesis 3:15
Put your high heels on…
It’s devil stomping time.
