Series: Living Under Kingdom Authority
Dr. Ernest L. Easley
1 Corinthians 2:1-5
From the book of 1 Corinthians, we are learning these days about .. LIVING UNDER KINGDOM AUTHORITY.
Yes, God has now given us “authority over all the power of our enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt us!”
Yes, in Christ we are now “more than conquerors,” giving us a superior position over the things of this world.
So why then do we continue living in defeat to unholy things? Why then are there strongholds in our lives that continue dragging us down and away from God? Why are we living the abnormal Christian life rather than the normal Christian life as conquerors and as victors?
Simple: we have exchanged our authority for a lie. Our enemy has convinced us that we are weak and human and therefore cannot shake the shackles that hold us in bondage.
Let me tell you the kind of friend you have in Satan. If you were sinking in quick sand, he would walk up give you a pat on the head. What God has given us; the Devil tries to snatch away.
So, how did we allow that to happen? Here’s how: by moving out from under Kingdom Authority. We have exchanged the word of God for the wisdom of man leaving us defenseless against our enemy. When Paul arrived to the city of Corinth, he walked in Living under Kingdom Authority preaching a life-changing message resulting in many people Getting Connected with God!
