Imparted Authority

Matt 10:1-4 “And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every affliction. The names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; Simon the Zealot, and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.”

The Mission:

Jesus is now teaching His disciples through DOING.
first year music teacher- theory becomes reality
first year pastor- theory becomes reality
specific short term mission
Matt 10:5-7 “These twelve Jesus sent out, instructing them, “Go nowhere among the Gentiles and enter no town of the Samaritans, but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And proclaim as you go, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’”
learn to live by faith
Matt 10:8-10 “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. You received without paying; give without pay. Acquire no gold or silver or copper for your belts, no bag for your journey, or two tunics or sandals or a staff, for the laborer deserves his food.”
learn to live as an ambassador
Matt 10:11-15 And whatever town or village you enter, find out who is worthy in it and stay there until you depart. As you enter the house, greet it. And if the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it, but if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. And if anyone will not receive you or listen to your words, shake off the dust from your feet when you leave that house or town. Truly, I say to you, it will be more bearable on the day of judgment for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah than for that town.”
As Ambassadors who live by faith on mission for Jesus Christ, we are engaged in a spiritual battle.
pawns and prizes
need for spiritual provisions and spiritual authority

Provision for the battle

helmet of salvation
breastplate of righteousness
belt of truth
shield of faith
shoes of the preparation of the gospel of peace
sword of the spirit
prayers and petitions
YHWH Nissi- Ex. 17:15-16 “And Moses built an altar and called the name of it, The Lord Is My Banner...
Thanksgiving- Phil 4:6 “do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”
Praise- Is. 61:3 “to grant to those who mourn in Zion— to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.”
Righteousness of Christ- Is. 61:10 “I will greatly rejoice in the Lord; my soul shall exult in my God, for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation; he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself like a priest with a beautiful headdress, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.”

Let us Pray...

“For this reason I kneel before the Father from whom His whole family in heaven and on earth is named. I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen me with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in my heart through faith. And I pray that I, being rooted and grounded in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how high and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know his love that surpasses knowledge– That we may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God”. (Ephesians 3:14-19 paraphrased.)
