Your Power of Attorney
Just like the last two teachings, I am taking this teaching almost directly from one of my research materials. I will be revising and editing much of the teaching to fit my writing style. Also, all of the Scriptures will be written out in their full form. You should be used to my color scheme and how I arrange most of my teachings in a grammatical sense. Now I would like to say that now I am not going to talk about the specifics of the teaching itself, but I am going to talk about the overall subject matter that you are about to learn.
As you may know, God apparently has chosen me to teach you about subjects that you are, more than likely, unfamiliar with. If I were a betting man, I would bet that you never heard about the subject of this teaching. That is because the enemy does not want you to know what can and will defeat him every time. This teaching requires believing to operate and get results. It is not something you go around saying almost all of the time. But as you will see from the examples, if a believer was really being hassled by Satan working in somebody else, you have every right to use your power of attorney in the name of Jesus Christ. Later, I will be going to one particular Scripture that addresses your power of attorney. Your power of attorney is so important to you that you may not realize it and you may never have heard of it before. I plan to open up the floodgates of your mind which will strengthen your ability to be more than a conqueror in every single situation. You need to know this principle and I will do my very best to make it understandable to you to the point that you operate it according to the Word, in your life when you need to. For your information, I use my power of attorney often. I do this because I am under a lot of pressure and mental tribulation from Satan who is the god of this world. He does not want this information to be revealed. I possibly am one of the very few people in the world today that will teach you a subject like we are going to discuss in full. Thank you for your full attention and of course even more than that, thank you for your believing. Believing equals receiving.
Let’s begin. Every person in the world wants to have a good name. People desire to be well thought of, and rightly so. I want to have a good name, and I want people to think well of me. Do you not feel the same way?
But many peoples’ names today are not respected. A man may say to you, "I'll pay you on such and such a day." When that day comes, he does not pay. Someone promises, "I'll meet you at such and such a time." When that time comes, he is not there but has left you waiting. Such a person's name is not respected because he has not put off lying.
Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. -- Ephesians 4: 25
I know that Christ is in me and in every born again believer.
To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: -- Colossians 1: 27
I am in Him if I am renewing my mind to His Word. Christ in you and you in Christ are two different concepts. An example of this, of which there are very many, is the subject of condemnation, which is sin. If you are IN Christ Jesus [in fellowship], you will not condemn yourself.
THERE is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. -- Romans 8: 1
I need to add something here. The actual text of the Bible stops in the above verse after Jesus. If you take a look at verse 4, you will see the same words that follow ‘Jesus’. When the scribe was copying the Bible, it is apparent that his eyes shifted down to verse four and he added that part to Romans 8: 1. The words “who walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit”, belong to the latter part of verse four in chapter 8 of Romans. Now take a good look at this and you will be able to see that the scribes sometimes made mistakes like this. I am going to give you the literal translation of Romans 8: 1.
THERE is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus. – Romans 8: 1
Now you have the rightly divided and correct Word of God. Now, we will get back to our subject matter.
No matter what people may say, no matter what the world may say, our names are written in the Book of Life if we are born again of God’s Spirit [Romans 10: 9, 10]. But, in order for us to be able to help ourselves and others, we must know more. We must know what power we have and the renewed mind is our key to power.
We are renewing our mind right now to the power of attorney. What is it to have the power of attorney in your life or in the life of the Church? Do you know? The power of attorney is the legal right to use the name of the person who has given you the power. This power is limited only to the extent of the resources behind that name. If the Church has been given the power of attorney, it has only as much power as is in the name of Jesus Christ and that’s a lot of power. If the name of Jesus Christ has power, and that name has been given to you, then you have the power of attorney to execute in that name whatever resources he [Jesus Christ] has available. Remember, we are also heirs of God AND joint-heirs with Christ.
That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: -- Ephesians 1: 17
The purpose that God had in mind in giving his name [Jesus Christ] is in Ephesians.
[That] the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance [is] in the saints, -- Ephesians 1: 18
And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to usward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, -- Ephesians 1: 19
Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places [in the heavenlies], -- Ephesians 1: 20
Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: -- Ephesians 1: 21
And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, -- Ephesians 1: 22
Which is his body, the fulness of him that [who] filleth all in all. -- Ephesians 1: 23
All the individuals in the true Church (body of believers) may claim the power in the name of Jesus Christ. But before we study this power that we have been given, I want to show you three reasons for this power in His name.
First of all, Jesus inherited a more excellent name than any other name in heaven and in earth. He inherited it because He was the only-begotten of the Father. This gave Him the legal rights of a first-born son. He is greater than any of the angels or any other individual human being who has lived or who will ever live. In God's presence, next to Jesus Christ stand the believers. Did you know that? Think about it and how fantastic that is regarding born again believers. First God, then Jesus Christ, then the believers. That’s where we stand regarding God’s order of importance. It’s hard to believe and that’s why we don’t live the more than abundant life. By our own free will, most of us choose not to believe.
And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. -- Romans 8: 17
Jesus said, "I came from the Father," and another time he said “My Father and I are one. He who has seen me has seen the Father.” [See John 16: 28 and John 10: 30 below]
I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father. – John 16: 28
I and my Father and are one [in purpose]. – John 10: 30
Secondly, God gave Jesus a name which is above every name.
Wherefore God also hath [has] highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: -- Philippians 2: 9
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; -- Philippians 2: 10
In the third place, this is the name that Jesus acquired for Himself which is a name above every name in the universe.
Philippians 2: 10 is the Scripture that I mentioned to you in the second paragraph of this teaching. It illustrates the power of attorney we have by having the legal right to use the name of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ defeated Satan and all his power. And we have the right to use the name of the person who has given you that power which is Jesus Christ himself.
I have rebuked more people, places, and situations than you can imagine. I want to help you to utilize this power via this principle correctly. Do you have something eating away at you and you just can’t shake it? USE YOUR POWER OF ATTORNEY RIGHT NOW! Just say: “In the name of Jesus Christ, get away from me.” Or simply say “I rebuke this person in the name of Jesus Christ.” Make sure you are in fellowship and only use this Power Of Attorney when absolutely necessary. Then BELIEVE what you said and it will come to pass – believe. It’s that simple.
Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. -- Ephesians 4: 8
When Jesus Christ rose from the dead, he already defeated all principalities and powers of the god of this world. Many people do not realize this. You need not only to know it, you must, you must believe it and God Almighty will bring it to pass.
And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them [delete] openly, triumphing over them in it. -- Colossians 2: 15 [“of them” is not in the text]
Jesus achieved these things. He acquired his name by his conquest of sin, by his conquest of the devil, hell, sickness and disease. He acquired an exalted name because of his achievements. He rubbed the devil’s face into the ground.
The power which Jesus acquired is the legal right of every born-again believer. But for a believer to manifest Christ's power in his life, he must renew his mind according to the Word of God so that he can believe.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed [transfigured] by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. -- Romans 12: 2
We must make our minds think as The Word dictates so we may prove the Will of God.
In order to understand the power in the name of Jesus Christ that is ours, I will take you more directly into the Word of God.
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. -- Matthew 1: 21
The prophecy says this child's name shall be Jesus. Jesus means "Savior."
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. -- Matthew 1: 23
His name means "He is our Savior," and God is with us through Him because we are born-again of God’s Spirit AND GOD ALMIGHTY DWELLS WITHIN US.
Neither is there salvation [wholeness] in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. -- Acts 4: 12
There is no other name but Jesus Christ whereby we can be saved. We cannot be saved by just belonging to a church or by attending church on Christmas and Easter. We must be saved by confessing the Lord Jesus Christ and by believing that God raised Him from the dead.
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. -- Romans 10: 9, 10
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. -- Acts 2: 38
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. -- John 14: 13
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. -- John 14: 14
The blessing of using the name of Jesus Christ belongs to us because we belong to the Body of Christ, the Church. Paul said, "I pray that God may open your understanding so that you will see some of the riches of the inheritance of the saints in the precious name – Jesus."
[That] the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance [is] in the saints. -- Ephesians 1: 18
In Acts 3 again we note the mighty name of Jesus Christ on the day Peter and John came to the temple and spoke to the man at the gate who was begging for alms. Did Peter and John go down on their knees and plead with God for an hour to heal the man? No. What does the record say?
Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I [I give] thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. -- Acts 3: 6
And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ancle bones received strength. -- Acts 3: 7
In the name of Jesus Christ there is power. Acts says that the man stood up and walked as the disciple took him by the hand.
And his name through faith [upon believing] in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness [wholeness] in the presence of you all. -- Acts 3: 16
Paul used the mighty name of Jesus as recorded in Acts 16 to deliver another enslaved person.
And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: -- Acts 16: 16
The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. -- Acts 16: 17
And this did she many days. [Paul was waiting for the green light and he got it] But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour. -- Acts 16: 18
What power the Church has today in the name of Jesus Christ! We need to claim that power. Today's Church has never used the power of His name to any great extent; and without using it, the Church can never manifest power. In the name of Jesus Christ the sick are healed. In the name of Jesus Christ devils are cast out. In the name of Jesus Christ people are freed from mental bondage. What a wonderful privilege and power the Church has.
That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; -- Philippians 3: 10
What a joy it is to belong to the Church. When we belong to the Church, we belong to the greatest and most powerful body in the world; there is nothing like the Church anywhere. The Church has such great power that even the gates of hell cannot prevail against it. That is why the devil cannot harm the people of the Church when they know the name of Jesus Christ and use that name, believing in it. Can you see why our prayers must be answered when we believe that Christ is in us? We can receive anything from God that He has promised in The Word if we only know and believe it. Everything that has been revealed in The Word we can thank God for, and, if we believe, it will come to pass.
And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. -- Colossians 3: 17
Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. -- Ephesians 5: 20
Do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks always.
[So] But [scratch‘But’] my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. -- Philippians 4: 19
In other words, all your needs are guaranteed to be supplied by Christ Jesus.
And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. -- I Corinthians 6: 11
You have been washed and sanctified, and you have been justified in His name; but you must receive it before you will manifest it. Isn't that wonderful! We have all power in that name. We have the power of attorney that when we use the name of Jesus Christ, powerful, positive things must happen.
By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. -- Hebrews 13: 15
Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: -- James 5: 14
And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. -- James 5: 15
Do elders in the Church have power? Elders have power to move the very gates of hell! The Word says so.
And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. -- I John 3: 23
We should love one another because of the name of Jesus Christ.
The Church has the power of attorney, the right to use the name of Jesus Christ. I have shown you the Scriptural passages that teach of the name of Jesus Christ, showing the power that is behind that name.
Ask yourself honestly, "Do I have the power of attorney?" You do have the right, the God-given authority, to use the name of Jesus Christ and see things come to pass. Yet for years and years people inside the fellowship of believers have seen but few positive results. Why? Just to say the name of Jesus Christ is not all that is necessary; you must believe that when you are saying it things will come to pass. All power is energized by believing and it is up to you to operate believing. Believing is action. You must know what the Word of God says, and then act upon that Word. As you hear The Word and act upon it, God will answer your requests.
Now that you know you have the power of attorney, use it! What value is it to you to have money in the bank if you do not know you have it? It is the same situation as when we have all the power in the name of Jesus Christ and we do not realize it. We have Christ in us, so we have the power of attorney. In the name of Jesus Christ activate that power and live the more abundant life.
