I have put My words in your mouth and have covered you with the shadow of My hand, to establish the heavens, to found the earth. Isaiah 51:16.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:

There are so much revelation I want to impart to you, but most are not ready to contain what I have to share, so many, like the Israelites in the wilderness limit Me in what I want to do for you and the position of authority over the works of the evil one that I want to give you.

Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you. Luke 10:19.

I want you to govern the earth according to My plans when I created the earth for you.

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” Genesis 1:26.

I sent Jesus to save you from your sins, but there is more, otherwise He could have just come to earth, taken your sins on Himself as your sin offering, died, been raised, and returned to Me. But I also sent Him to bring you the abundant life of your full dominion authority.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. John 10:10.

He is your teacher.

Do not be called teachers; for One is your teacher, that is, the Messiah. Matthew 23:10.

But your teacher of what? Of how you are to live your life as a child of Mine, as you were first formed. Of how you are to rule the earth.

And Jesus answered and said to them, “Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ it will happen. Matthew 21:21.

Do you see where authority and rule comes from? Faith in Me. Power comes through faith and faith works by love. That is how I work and do the things I do. I release My power by faith and I exercise My power in love. That is My glory, which is My goodness, it is the exercise of My power in love producing good and driving out evil.

And one of the crowd answered Him, “Teacher, I brought You my son, possessed with a spirit which makes him mute; and whenever it seizes him, it slams him to the ground and he foams at the mouth, and grinds his teeth and stiffens out. I told Your disciples to cast it out, and they could not do it.” And He answered them and said, “O unbelieving generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring him to Me!” Mark 9:17-19.

Why were the disciples and the people in the crowd unable to cast out the demon spirit when I gave you authority over all the power of the enemy? Luke 10:19. Jesus called them an unbelieving generation. This is the same problem that kept the Israelites I redeemed from slavery in Egypt from taking possession of the land I had promised them and given them: unbelief, that is, no faith in My Word so no power behind their words. They refused to speak My Words and spoke their own words which were from the flesh. And that was the level where Adam had put the human race when he was born again of the perishable seed of lies of the devil rather than the way he had originally been formed from the incorruptible seed of My Word, which is truth.

Jesus told you that all things are possible to the one that believes in My Words. And that is how you take back your dominion authority. Jesus has given you My Words. Adam rejected them, but in Covenant I have given them back to you so you can again take up your authority over the earth and undo (destroy) the works the devil has done to mankind and through mankind to the earth.

Jesus gave you My Words and with that He gave you the glory that I gave Him, so all you who believe may be one body in fellowship, purpose, and authority with Him as the head; even as Jesus and I are One, I in Him and Him in Me, that you also may would be in Us, so that the world may believe that I sent Him by the authority in your lives that had been in His. John 17:13-26.

And indeed, that is what I gave the Israelites under the Old Covenant to make them successful and in the position above their enemies rather than beneath.

“Now it shall be, if you hear and obey the Word of the LORD your God, being careful to do all His commandments which I command you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. All these blessings will come upon you and overtake you if you hear and obey the Words of the LORD your God. Deuteronomy 28:1-2.

My Covenant with you that raises you up powerful again upon the earth is My Words in your mouth, and in the mouths of your children, and My Spirit upon you and in you. Just as in the beginning, when you release My Word out of your mouth in faith, My Spirit is hovering over you and in you to bring that Word into manifestation.

Jesus demonstrated this for you. He rebuked and commanded storms, fevers, blind eyes, and anything from the devil (which includes all illness (mental and emotional), pain, lack, and eternal death) to cease and cast them out. He then would speak the word of restoration.

Do you recall when Jesus was in Capernaum and a Roman centurion came to Him asking Him to heal his paralyzed servant who was lying at home paralyzed and tormented? Jesus told the centurion that He would come and heal the servant. But the centurion replied that it was not necessary for Jesus to come to his home, all that was needed was for Jesus to speak the Word of command and his servant would be healed. The centurion explained that he understood the power of a command from one with the authority to give it, then all beneath him must obey.

Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled and said to those who were following, “Truly I say to you, I have not found such great faith with anyone in Israel. I say to you that many will come from east and west, and recline at the table with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven; but the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” And Jesus said to the centurion, “Go; [n]it shall be done for you as you have believed.” And the servant was healed that very moment. Matthew 8:10-13.

Jesus came to save you and that included teaching you how to take back the authority you had lost contact with and no longer knew how to exercise since the time of Adam. He showed you how to live as sons of God.

For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him (Adam) who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. Romans 8:19-21.

The problem is that many of you, like the father of the boy that neither he nor the disciples were able to command the demon out of, believe but deal with unbelief. And that is where Jesus steps in as the author and perfector of your faith, and My Spirit steps in to help you. But you must understand that the way I heal and deliver you is by sending you My Word. Jesus is My Word, and you must keep your eyes on Him, and today since He is not with you in the flesh that means keeping your eyes on My Word. Same as I told Joshua how to take authority over the promised land. Joshua 1:8. The more Word you get into you the more your mind will be renewed so that Jesus can perfect you and I can complete the good work I have begun in you.

The Spirit also will take hold with your spirit and lead you in prayer and guide you to all truth. My Word is truth and the more of My Word you hear and study the more your faith will grow. And the more faith you have in your heart, the more you will speak with your mouth, for the mouth speaks from the abundance of your heart.

And that is part of the Christmas journey of remembrance, to feed your faith as you walk with Jesus through His life. And with His baptism by John in the Jordan, which we will talk about in the next Life Lesson, begins a three-year journey of how you are to walk upon the earth. I taught Him and He showed you how to take down Satan’s lies by answering with My Word, how to respond to illness, deformity, storms, trials, lack of supplies or funds, and so much more. He taught you how to forgive. He taught you how to give. And above all He taught you how to live a fruitful, successful, abundant life. He taught you how to be more than a conqueror.

And that is all part of the package, and the person, of Salvation.

I love you. Learn from Jesus as your Teacher, for He is gentle and humble of heart, and He only speaks My Words and does My Works because He is My Word. In seeing Him you see Me for I am My Word. We are One, and when you join with us by My Word you are one with us as well. My one unique Son. The one unique you, and you will be always you, but all as one (like-minded) in purpose, love, and the exercise of My power through faith exercised in love by you and Me. What a wonderful way to be.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it. John 1:1-5.

He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. Revelation 3:21.
