Pastor’s Corner – Speaking of victory and blessings

By Rev. Dennis Van Gorp Family Life Christian Center

In Luke 20, the chief priests and the teachers of the law asked Jesus:“By what authority are you doing these things? Who gave you this authority?” They knew that John’s baptism was from heaven, even though they didn’t agree with him.

In Matthew 28:16-20, we find the 11 disciples meeting with Jesus. He told them that He had been given all authority in heaven and on earth. The only one who could do such a thing was Father God. Next, Jesus gives that same authority to His disciples, commissioning them to take the gospel message to the nations.

At the time Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River by John; Father God anointed Him with heaven’s Divine authority to minister in full power to the people. Several years later, He returned back to the throne room of heaven, sitting and reigning at the right hand of Jehovah God. Before He left, He transferred that power and authority to the disciples. We as God’s spiritual children have inherited that same power and authority to minister to the nations, our country and our city.

In John 7:38, Jesus says that when we minister to others, it will be like streams of living water flowing out of us and into them. That is how the Holy Spirit works through us to touch others with God’s love, power, healing and miracles.

Let the mighty love of the Lord flow into the lives of those around you as you speak victory and blessings over them and into them!
