Such authority is altogether objective; it is not inherent in the man himself. It is connected not with the person, but merely with his position. If he holds the office of superintendent, it follows as a matter of course that he superintends affairs, no matter whether he is spiritually qualified to do so or not. If he holds the office of director, then automatically he directs, even if lack of spirituality should really disqualify him from exercising control over other lives.
The life of an organization is position; it is position that determines authority. Living Stream Ministry publishes the works of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee, providing the authoritative and definitive collections of treasures from these two servants of the Lord Jesus Christ.
How to use your spiritual authority
The writings of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee focus on the enjoyment of the divine life, which all the believers possess, and on the building up of the church, the goal of God's work with man in this age. Words are very powerful. And you need to be declaring your position of spiritual authority and power, if you really want to stand strong in it.
But when he stooped low in heeding to the voice of the serpent, Adam had to leave that position of influence over all creatures to be able to do that. He fell and he fell face down into shame and disgrace. Hell was let loose on him and Eve, as the knowledge of both good and evil were revealed to their understanding.
God created us to have the knowledge of good in this world only. Our God is a good God. There is no evil in Him. He never planned for evil in our world. The devil was the one who introduced evil, by tempting Adam and Eve into sinning against God.

When we are not standing in our position of spiritual authority, where God has placed us over our homes, businesses, ministries, Churches, communities or nations — then hell is let loose to do havoc in those spheres of our spiritual influences. God gave us spiritual authority in the name of Jesus, because He knows that when we use it, then we can reign on earth with Him. God does not want to reign on earth alone. That was not His original intention in creating us. Otherwise He would not had brought all creatures to Adam in naming them Genesis Therefore for us to be able to stand in spiritual authority on the earth, it is necessary that we do understand, where and how we had obtained that authority.
Are you standing in your position of spiritual authority?
You have to release your faith always, to be able to give the Holy Spirit something to work with in your life. And your declaration of what you expect the Holy Spirit to do for you, is important to get the result that you are anticipating in the spirit. Stop declaring your physical circumstances. It is your faith killer.
Faith only speaks and declares the mind of Christ in every situation that surrounds you. No one can ever be able to exercise or stand in a position of authority, if he or she has never learnt to be submissive and obedient to authorities Romans Every demon in hell do understand and know how constituted authority works. They know when you are not walking by faith under constituted authority. And they will use this spiritual opening against you, in attacking you even as a child of God.
They will always use your physical circumstances and situations, to distract you from walking in the spirit and by the Spirit; because they do know that you are more powerful than them, when you are operating from that realm. Evil spirits can recognize your position of spiritual authority, and whom you are submissive to in that position of authority. The pattern and structure of the kingdom of darkness operates under the very pattern and structure which Satan took with him when he rebelled against God.
Stay in the spirit and live by the Spirit.
About The Alternative
You are a winner. Your position of spiritual authority in Christ Jesus, is the strongest that you have. The spiritual authority of the body of Christ, to the nations works in this manner also. We are able to exercise spiritual authority to the nations with the declaration of the gospel, because of our submission to the authority of Christ over His body.
And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. He was submissive to the authority of His Father in Heaven, even while doing the will of God on the earth as the Son of Man. And we are not different from Jesus at all in this world. In this world the devil sees you just as he sees Jesus.
No believer in Christ can exercise spiritual authority here on earth, if he does not know how that authority in Christ Jesus is derived, and from where it comes. A lack of understanding about this is hindering the faith of many believers to be able to exercise spiritual authority here on earth. Some believers do think that only those in the leadership positions within the body of Christ, do have the right to exercise spiritual authority.
But they are dead wrong, because this type of theology is contrary to the teaching of Jesus. In fact many of them are suffering as a result of this falsehood, within the body of Christ today. It is of the utmost importance that believers understand the spiritual authority they possess. In Ephesians, Paul prayed that the believers would grasp the depth and breadth of their authority because he was concerned they would not maximize their power. The authority Paul prayed for, that other believers should also pray for, is available to us based on the resurrection of Jesus Christ and it is a power that God wants to transfer to believers.
However, this power exists in the spiritual realm and in heavenly places Eph It does not exist on earth, and that is why prayer is critical in the life of the believer. Believers should ask for power and ask to see life the way God sees it Ps Jesus is seated in heavenly places Eph and that connection to Him is the key to our spiritual kingdom — oriented on Earth.
Submission to the Lordship of Jesus Christ is critical for experiencing His power; and our submission to Christ is accomplished through the church Eph Disconnection from the lordship of Jesus Christ and the authority of Christ from the church dumbs down the flow of power and authority that God has for His people. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe.
