This may come as a shock to you, but you’ve been given Power Of Attorney! Now, you may say, “What
exactly is POA?…..Who in my family would have or could possibly have given me POA?…And if this is
true, what do I have POA of?” Well my friend, your question could not had come up at a better time. You
see my friend, you have kinfolk who are royalty. You have a Heavenly Father who wanted and included you
in His will….And you have an older brother, Jesus Christ, who wants to sit, side-by-side and to be joint-heirs
with you. Your Heavenly Father chose you and predestined you to be His very own royal, holy, but peculiar
people “(v4)According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be
holy and without blame before him in love: (v5)Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by
Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, (v6)To the praise of the glory of his
grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.” Eph.1:4-6 (see also I Pet.2:9; Deut.14:2).
Let us briefly, explain what a POA is. A POA is a legal and written authority and
plan to transact business (in your case) for someone else. This POA, Power of
Attorney, or shall we term it, Power of Authority, is a Heavenly authorization which
deems you to be either a General Agent, who represents another (Christ) in all His
business; or a Special Agent who is authorized to do some very specific work or to
transact some special type of business. As either one of these agents (General or
Special), you can act with “all authority” within the limits and bounds of the legal
authorization, just as much as Christ (the one who delegated the authority).
Matthew 28:18 Jesus declared, “All power in Heaven and Earth has
been given to me…” My friend, you have been delegated this same
power. (see John 14:12; 15:16;20:21) Christ assures the born-again
believer “keys of the Kingdom of Heaven.” (Mt. 16:19;18:18)
The “keys” are to provide that bona fide believer access and power
to dislodge, disable, destroy, bind, and/or release, restore, and loose
things here on earth. Christ goes on to tell us in the Holy scriptures,
that whatever we bind or loose on earth, the selfsame thing would
be done in Heaven….(see power over serpents and scorpions
Friend, you need to know that as a born-again believer, you have more power than you realize. There’s
power simply in “being a believer!” For the scripture says that all things are made possible to him that
believeth (Mark 9:23). See also Mt.17:20-21 and 21:22; Jn.14:12-14; Lk. 24:49; Acts 1:8; I Cor.12:7-11.
You have power in the name Jesus! (Mk.16:17-18; Jn.15:16; 16:23-26) As a believer, you have authority
and power in your mouth. Blessings, curses, death, and life are all in the power of the tongue (Prov.18:21;
Jas.3:9-10; Mt.12:37) According to the power which works in you
(Eph.3:20) you can execute power and authority over and against
all devils, unclean spirits, and to cure diseases (Lk.9:1; Mt.10:1).
To put it all plainly, since you have perceived Calvary, received Christ in your heart, and made a
proclamation that you will live for Him, due to the power of His resurrection, you gained full, redemptive,
legal, “blood-bought” and promised family rights to do the works of Christ and to use His name in faith. You
do not need for anyone to appoint or qualify you for anything. “For ye have not chosen me, but I
have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit….” see Jn.15:16. You have
total access to the Kingdom of Heaven, given, that you use the access code (the name, JESUS in faith)
appropriately. For Jesus said, up until now, you have not asked anything in my name, because I was with
you and you asked Me personally…..but after I leave you, you MUST ask the Father in My Name!
Know this my friend, you basically have free and unlimited use of this “checking account!” You can “check-
in” and “deposit” in the name of Jesus, as frequently as you like. All your checks and transactions will be
honored in the amounts signed and made payable…. Given, that all transactions are carried out with a
steadfastness in your spirit, and an unwavering hand (Jas.1:5-8). In other words, continue to stay before
Him… in prayer, in word, in deed, having and maintaining a readiness to walk in any institution (territory)
to declare war on the enemy, and giving yourself wholly to the things of God (I Tim.4:13,15-16). God will
surely honor you and the things you bring before Him.
You have a chance to be a very active participant in the business of the Kingdom of Heaven. Take hold of
your role to teach and/or preach good tidings unto the meek, binding-up the broken-hearted and proclaiming
liberty to them that are bound (Isa.61:1), recovering the sight to the blind, and setting at liberty them that are
bruised (Lk.4:18) by exercising your rights as POA!
