This week the Lord was ministering to me in my spirit about delegated Authority and permission. It is a term I know well in my secular role as aspects of intervention has been delegated to me by my earthly employer – giving me scope and permission to make decisions up to a certain point on matters. The word came to me as a result of a computer issue at work where the system failed to give me access to a certain electronic file. The constant error message was ‘you dont have permission’. This was so frustrating. I could see where I needed to get to, but I couldn’t get in. I had been given permission, I had the right password, but something was still blocking my access.
It was a couple of days later that the problem was sorted. I was told that there had been some kind of gremlin in the system, which didnt want to recognize me …..
I have been thinking about this issue for three days. The Bible says as in the natural so in the spiritual . The blocks and frustrations which came about by my frustration to access an electronic file has made my understanding that much keener on what happens in the spirit.
Father nudged me to write a word on it and by so doing encourage you and others.
The Lord would first say that you have permission to say and to do. This is the delegated authority that he purchased for me and you on the cross. The rights of passage was transferred through Adoption , through the shed blood of Jesus.
When you start a new job, you have to be given permission to access the electronic systems , the door codes, the computers , the phones etc. In our modern (all signing and dancing world….. )everything is locked down until you have permission and that strong password.
Although I had been given permission on one level, what was strange is that there were still blocks. Father would have us understand that this happens spiritually.
As Christians we have to have an understanding of spiritual things, strongholds or strangleholds , glitches , little foxes … (if you like) that hold individuals in bondage or can put a spanner in the work preventing freedom.
The Bible refers to some of these entrapping spiritual issues as bands (see Leviticus 23:13;Job 38:31; Job 39:5;Psalms 107:14;Ecclesiastes 7:26;Judges 15:14;Ezekiel 4:8;Luke 8:29; Acts 16:26). I have seen these bands like tentacles in my dreams. These bands need to be loosed so that one has freedom to see, to move, to live and to access the blessings of God.
I want to say this and to wake you up as a child of God to the transferred power and permission inherent in you to loose personal , familial, community , institutional , societal, psychological , spiritual, national and international bands.
Yes you can do it. Called to do it. You have permission to see yourself much higher than others might want to see you. Go ahead, receive it…! God through his son Jesus has given us that right to do so.
The bible says that He (Father God) has made us kings and priests. Priests are given delegated authority by God to stand in the gap on behalf of others. Kings are given inherited , delegated authority, to rule and to reign.
Jesus Christ is our great high priest and Shepherd King. This priesthood and kingship – divine authority (which he has from a Holy Father) he passed to us through spiritual adoption. We were adopted in the Beloved when we received by transfer, his perfect sacrifice of his death on the cross and we receive it by faith in our body.
Three days of spiritual battles went on underground and in the heavenlies, eventuating in the keys which Adam and Eve had relinquished to the adversary back to where it belongs, with us. Those spiritual keys he took and has given them back to us. You have permission to use them and to do all things in his Name.
What do you know?…. Wake up…! We have the same power that raised him from the dead. The same wonderful working power to say to blind eyes ‘open’ and they open. We have the permission to say shut and that thing shuts.
You have permission.
You have access
Use your God given permission to do of his good pleasure. To pray and intercede for yourself and others. To open ancient doors so that the King of Glory can come in.
King David wrote about the ancient doors and I have seen those ancient doors both in the natural and in the spiritual. They are generational, familial spiritual gates with padlocks, doors which have held many captive – kept many bound.
Many don’t know they can come out now, sadly some don’t even want to. I have seen this too.
But we see Jesus… and He saw and sees those who are seeking willing wanting and waiting for deliverance.
We have permission to help them come out of the dungeon and into the light.
Out of the sickness into total health and well-being.
Permission and the authority to lift that one from the pit and to say to the other ‘hold your peace’.
Permission to tread on serpents and scorpions and know that nothing shall by any means harm us.
Go now and take authority .
You have permission – that which Jesus gave.
This is the word which has come this week over a series of seeings and revelations.
I am realizing if I don’t use my gift it becomes redundant so I start again. He called me to write.
I start with a prayer
Sometimes Lord I cannot pray with my mouth, but may my heart and pen render the words, the prayer and praise, that is pleasing to your ears. May my heart be moved with the things that moves you.
Look down Holy Father on the affairs of men, your creation. Lord we have become darkened, diseased and despondent by sin’s long reach , tentacles pulling us down and down. Squeezing the very life from us. As a python squeezes the very life out of an helpless animal caught in its wake , so have we been lying down in places and position we should not have been. We lay prostrate like dumb dogs which cannot bark. Eyes and ears open but dumbfounded , oblivious , perplexed to what it is that holds us stupefied and bound. It is (says your word)our own iniquities that have separated us from your love, but still you remind us ‘whilst we were yet sinners’, you died.
As I write , I hear the refrain ‘the Lord delights in showing mercy’ a comfort this has been to my soul. So be merciful unto us O Lord. Try us one more time.
Let us not be like Esau who sold and sought for his birthright with bitters tears – but found it not . Let us not lose our place, discard, abandon, merchandise or trade-in, our prized possession , which is : Christ in us the hope of Glory.
Let us be watchful, vigilant unto prayer lest the enemy sneaks in unawares (nay now under our noses … ) and steal our prized possession.
Let us guard our hearts with all diligence for out of it are the issues of life – not what is in our bag or purses or our ability to pay or pave out our way – standing or status.
Let us not hold onto or harbor worldly possessions or malice, but hold onto the key and keys which you gave for eternal life, starting with love.
There is no mountain too high, no river too deep that your amazing love and light cannot reach.
You are our bridge of hope amidst the chasm and chaos and perils of this world. Let us not jump too soon or move too late . Let us wait and be obedient to your holy timing and calling.
Your name is a strong tower, our rock of defence – our eternal hiding place.
You have shown that you are forming a beautiful diamond, a magnus opus , a work of art shooting upwards and outwards from the fiery furnace , connecting your people, the nations together to form your glorious multifaceted church.
Help those who lead to lead well and in your name , those who teach likewise. Break the spirit of pride and of Egypt , amongst us. Take away the foxes,the spiders, the snakes and the strong bulls of Bashan. Give us lowly Shepherds after your own heart.
And so as I have seen and heard this week, so I have written. I am Father’s daughter, but not above the reproof or the remedy. May he help us.
I close with Isaiah 28:20-29
For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it:
and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it.
21 For the Lord shall rise up as in mount Perazim,
he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon,
that he may do his work, his strange work;
and bring to pass his act, his strange act.
22 Now therefore be ye not mockers,
lest your bands be made strong:
for I have heard from the Lord God of hosts
a consumption, even determined
upon the whole earth.
