    Authority of the Believer – Living Complete
    Posted by Ashley Ellison
     As believers, we have access to everything we need to live a completed life. We have access to the Word. We have access to prayer. Nothing is missing in the life of a Christian. We can grow in our knowledge, but He has already completed the work. We must access the authority that God has given us as believers.

    Parables -The Sower
    Parables were a means that Jesus used to convey his message. Parables are an earthly story with a heavenly meaning. It's God's desire that we would understand the meaning of the parables. The Parable of the Sower, found in Mark chapter four is foundational. It teaches us how to receive the Word in all of the other parables. Ultimately, in the Parable of the Sower, we find that it all comes down to two types of soil...Soil that produces fruit and soil that doesn't. The seed is good, but it is dependent on the soil, to determine whether it will bring forth fruit. As we apply this parable of Jesus to our lives, we may examine ourselves to see if our heart is soil that produces.

    Our Promised Land
    In his message, "Our Promised Land", Chatman Laxton shares that God has a promised land of life and abundance for us here on this earth. We must first seek God's kingdom and his righteousness, and we can then know that God has a place of success and abundance for us to take part in. Chatman presented three takeaways from the Promised Land referenced in the  Old Testament: 1) The Promised Land was a literal, physical place. It was not simply a symbol for Heaven. 2) The Promised Land was centered around a relationship with God and his presence. Our success is built on relationship with God, and his Holy Spirit inside of us. 3) The Promised Land required effort through faith to obtain it. It takes effort to go to the next level in our faith.

    Authority in the Kingdom Part Two
    We have a call on our lives to live as ambassadors of the Kingdom of God in this world. We have to understand authority to be able to live victoriously. In his message, "Authority in the Kingdom", Ashley Ellison lays out how Adam was given dominion on the earth, and then lost that dominion upon his decision to disobey God. Jesus then became the spotless sacrifice, restoring dominion. Because of Jesus we now can receive back what was ours. We have the ambassadorship of Jesus. Because of the authority of Jesus, we can live above our circumstances and live a blessed life.

    The Parables
    It is important for the Word of God to be planted as seed into the heart and life of the believer. Scripture has the ability to shine a light into areas of our lives that need to be changed, convicting us and prompting us to be obedient to the Holy Spirit. The Parables of Jesus teach what the Kingdom of God is like, and give believers practical ways to apply those principles in our lives.

    Build it Now
    Susan Allen referenced God instructing Noah to build the ark in Genesis chapter 6, comparing it to the last days, referenced in 2 Timothy chapter 3. Noah's family was the last righteous family on earth, and God gave him detailed instructions on how to build a means of escape for his family. Currently in our society, the characteristics of the world are creeping into homes and churches, bringing corruption. God has given instruction in his Word for how to remove that decay from our lives and protect our families. We must get our focus back on the Word of God, instead of the rain that's coming. We need to have a "Word" answer for a "World" problem. Just as Noah built an ark to protect his family from the destruction of a corrupted world, we need to "build" protection for our families by adhering to the instruction and holiness of the Word of God.

    Authority in the Kingdom
    We must be born again to see things from a kingdom perspective. As born again believers in Christ, we become his ambassadors. We have spiritual authority, representing God's kingdom here in this world. As his ambassadors, we must live according to the thinking of our King Jesus, not our own thinking.. If we're living according to the principles of the kingdom of God, we will experience the freedom of the Spirit of the Lord, for where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom!
