HE SAID TO THEM, "I WATCHED SATAN FALL FROM HEAVEN LIKE A FLASH OF LIGHTNING. SEE, I HAVE GIVEN YOU AUTHORITY TO TREAD ON SNAKES AND SCORPIONS, AND OVER ALL THE POWER OF THE ENEMY; AND NOTHING WILL HURT YOU." LUKE 10:18-19... Yeshua had just sent out 70 disciples in two's to share the Good News and do miracles. This was and still is an act of spiritual warfare! The TRUTH confronted the lies of the world system. Signs, wonders and miracles were and are power confrontations against the chains and bonds of sin. It worked then and it still works now. Many were saved, many were healed and many were delivered. This gold badge of authority was multiplied through His disciples, and satan's power had been shaken to the core! The precedent had been set, satan no longer held authority, it had been superseded!!! NOW it is our turn to wield the gold badge of Yeshua's authority! No devil, no demon, no spiritual enemy can stand against us. There are new sheriffs in town! Time is here & now for rejoicing, as we read verse 20 in this same passage..."All the same, the great triumph is not in your authority over evil, but in Yahweh's authority over you and presence with you. Not what you do for Yahweh but what Yahweh does for you--that is the agenda for rejoicing." AMEN!
In John 6:48-51 it reads in The Passion , "I AM the true Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert and died. But standing here before you is the true Bread that comes out of heaven, and when you eat this Bread you will never die. I alone am this living Bread that has come to you from heaven. Eat this Bread and you will live forever. The living Bread I give is my body, which I will offer as a sacrifice so that all may live." There is a difference between eternal life and living forever. The only reason I would die is if there is a record of sin in my DNA. I do not need to die, none of us do. But we need to undergo transformation by applying the body and blood of Jesus. The body and blood of Jesus carry the record of the DNA of God. We can age and die, or we can take the body and blood of Jesus within ourselves, and live forever!. Jesus says in John 6:58, "I am not like the bread your ancestors ate and later died. I am the living Bread that comes from heaven.
