Are you aware you have three weapons of mass destruction to destroy the enemy? Do you know how to use them? The Word clearly defines these weapons and our authority to apply them. Every believer has the same weapons for all areas of our lives. Our first weapon of mass destruction is the Name of Jesus. But, as with any weapon, there must be an authority behind it. When we understand our authority was given by Jesus to use His name, we also realize that it is not to be used flippantly.
Sometimes people will just ‘throw’ in the Name of Jesus as a formula for answered prayer. But we must comprehend when Christ died on the cross He said, “It is finished.” He had completed what God had promised. It is now up to us, as believers, to grasp that truth and pray thankfully that Jesus paid the price for us. Using the Weapons of Mass Destruction--Jesus was born of God and was God. He exercised His authority by birthright. We are created by God and granted the authority that Jesus had, not by birthright but by proxy, when we ask in Jesus’ name. Jesus said to ask in His name and He will do it. He was giving His power of attorney. “Whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” John 14:14
Jesus gave us the power of attorney to use His Name. Power of attorney is a legal concept authorizing one to act as an agent on behalf of the one granting the authority.As Jesus spoke to Phillip in John 14:10 “Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.” Our relationship with Jesus is our legal basis for our authority but only to the extent that it expresses God’s will – which is His Word.
And when we grasp that authority which is God-given, we can stand against any adversity and use the Name of Jesus to destroy the enemy. Realize deeply that we have the Word of God in us, in our spirit. We can know beyond any doubt or any fear that tries to ensnare us that we are victorious because of that precious Name. What Happens When We Use The Weapon Of Mass Destruction? So when we use that Name, when we understand the authority behind that Name, we know by faith that we can do what we need to do to destroy the works of the enemy in any situation. We have that document, we have that power of attorney, we have that authority, and we have God-given anointing in us to overtake, overrun, and overrule anything the enemy would try to put on us. The Power of Attorney makes us victors instead of victims. We call the shots.
It is also important to remember that if we consistently recognize and give credit to the enemy and what he is trying to do – we are, in essence, praising him. He loves to be recognized and takes pride in it. But when we learn to recognize God in every situation instead, we can approach any situation from a positive position, rather than from a place of defeat. When we complain about the things that are going wrong, the attacks we feel we are facing, the fear in a situation, we are providing fertile territory for the devil to play games with our state of mind. Remember that the anointing in you from God is far greater than anything the devil throws at you. That authority has been given to you along with your right to use the name of Jesus to destroy the works of the enemy. The anointing is ours. The anointing is upon us when Jesus came in via His Holy Spirit, and is dwelling in our spirit. The empowerment of that anointing gives us the authority to take a stand against the things that would try to destroy us.
Thanking God For The Anointing--Take a moment and thank God for the anointing that reigns in you because of Jesus. Start by turning your prayers of petition to prayers of praise. Thank God that the name of Jesus is ABOVE every other name – the name of sickness, disease, fear, or loss is subject to the name of Jesus. We have the right to pray with authority and anointing – we don’t have to beg God but rather thank Him for what He has provided. We thank You Lord that You have given us that authority with the anointing of your Spirit Who dwells within our spirit. We can stand on the Word which is yes and amen. And we can say, “sickness be gone, disease be gone, pain be gone in the name of Jesus.” Choose to believe the Word of God. And watch what happens.
Authority To Be In Command--The name of Jesus is a weapon of mass destruction when we understand what is behind that Name and the authority we are given to use it. Philippians 2:9 assures us that EVERYTHING is subject to the name of Jesus. Sickness is subject to the Name!Terror and Fear are subject to the Name!Pain is subject to the Name!The Name of Jesus is above all names and gives us the AUTHORITY TO BE IN COMMAND. The anointing is the empowerment of authority.
