I have often wondered and have finally come to understand the relationship between GRACE and BLESSING. Can a blessing be earned? I have done all these wonderful things and therefore I should expect a…Continue

God Entrusts Man with Authority
God made a very calculated risk when He decided not to exercise full authority over the earth. He refused to require His children to love Him. God is ultimately responsible for what happens on planet earth, but He is not to blame for all that happens, because of man’s free will. Unless man exercises his authority to prevent Satan’s attack, Satan’s will exercise his right to steal, kill, and destroy.
Exercising Our Authority
There are other things that happen on earth that is a result of man exercising the authority God entrusts to him. We are here to enforce the covenants, what God and Jesus have spoken on the earth. This is done through intercessory prayer. God is looking for those He can partner with to accomplish what He wants to do on the earth. “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.” “Then I will raise up for Myself a faithful priest who shall do according to what is in My heart and in My mind.” “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven…” God is looking for individuals who are willing to stand in the gap to fulfill His purposes and enforce His covenant on the earth. “So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.” This verse is not just a reference to prayer, but an admonition that believers are to stand for righteousness in the culture so that those in that culture will not be destroyed for their sins.
Evil still exists on the earth through Satan, but God has given the lease to earth back to us through the blood covenant of Jesus. However, it must be exercised to see the manifestation of the covenant promises. God is waiting on His people to exercise our authority to bring these things into being. One of Jesus’ last instructions to the disciples related to His authority and His passing of that authority to those of us on earth: “And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
We are to enforce and teach what Jesus has instructed us to do and what He has said. Our role is to enforce His will through prayer by claiming His promises and defeating the works of the enemy. Jesus came to defeat the works of the enemy. We, too, are called to defeat the works of the enemy on earth. We do not have to ask what His will is in many situations, because He has already stated His will. As God’s representatives, we enforce His will through intercessory prayer, which activates the covenantal blessings of God on earth.
Intercession involves a legal appeal process in heaven by those (you and me) who are interceding for a ruling to be enforced by the landlord (God) for what has already been stated (God’s covenant promises). What are some of God’s covenant promises? Anything that Jesus modeled while He was on earth can be expected to be realized through us, because He said that the works He did would also be done by us. These include a right to physical provision, health, peace, a life without fear.
Jesus Lived as a Man
Jesus lived with the same limitations that we live with while He was on earth. However, He appropriated what He needed on earth through His heavenly Father. He always did what He saw the Father doing through Him. He carried out the will of the Father. We are called to do the same. That is how His kingdom is manifested on the earth through each son and daughter. This is why it is so important that we each have a prayer life devoted to praying what we see the Father wanting us to pray through us. Jesus is our high priest and intercessor before the Father to enforce His covenants when we pray.
As change agents, we must make this prayer discipline part of our strategy to displace principalities over cultural mountains and repel Satan’s activity in our own lives. We have been given the power of attorney on earth to act on His behalf until He returns.
Jesus said we have the keys to release His will upon the earth in matters of which He has already spoken. “And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
