Who Are You?

This morning I felt the Lord directing me to write a short message for someone. I don't know who it is for, and I don't need to know. I'm just going to obey God. This is a small excerpt from a sermon I preached a couple of years ago.

We need to understand our position in Christ and that as a Child of God, you are to go out in the power and authority of the name of Jesus;
The name that is above every name.
The name that is mightier than sickness,
The name that is mightier than poverty.
The name that is mightier than death,
The name that is mightier than the enemy.
When Jesus speaks, the Universe listens, and here’s where it gets even better…
He said in John 14:13,14…

And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
Did you get that?

Here’s what you need to realize, you’re not a nobody.
You’re not just a member in some church.
I'm not just some insignificant guy who pastors a small church
over in East Galesburg, Illinois.
We serve at the pleasure of the Most High God!

Satan does not want you to understand this.
You see when you are a somebody in Heaven, even Hell knows who you are!
Say what?
I submit to you that Hell knows who you are, because you are a somebody in heaven! You are a child of the King of King with full rights, privileges and authority!

And the Devil is trying to play you like a fool…
Acting like he doesn’t know who you are!

Listen to me…
You don’t have to go around intimidated by the enemy.
You don’t have to run from some devil.
God is on your side and He’s given you power over all that the enemy has to throw at you.

You need to start telling the enemy to get his hands off your finances.
Tell him to get his hands off your children.
Tell him to get his hands off your body.
Tell him to get out of the house and stay out!
God is on your side!
Now act like it!
