This authority becomes yours by the right of redemption through the Lord Jesus.
By this delegated authority, you can put Satan and his agents where they belong.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I am amazed at the unfortunate incidence happening in the church of Christ in which believers seems to live in constant fear of the devil.
Satan has been promoted that he is now an important point of reference among many denomination.
This is not supposed to be.
As Every New Covenant believer is by redemption a Son of God and master of the devil by his God-given authority.
Lu 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
I earlier mentioned in some preceding chapter that the devil has absolutely no power.
The above scriptural reference is the one people who ascribed power to the devil have been used to back up their gospel.
This explained why we must examine the scripture from the perspective of the Holy Spirit.
There are two words interpreted to mean power in the Greek Bible.
The first one is the Greek word “exousia” which means delegated authority, while the second one is “dunamis” which is ability or strength.
The above scriptural reference clearly indicates what I am trying to say.
There are two powers mentioned in the same scripture with different meanings.
The first power which Jesus Christ gave to the disciple is the Greek word “exousia”, while the second power which Christ attributed to the devil is “dunamis”.
If we attempt to rewrite the scripture substituting the original meaning of the two powers, we would have it written as follows:
Behold, I give unto you delegated authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the ability of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
By this statement, Jesus clearly proved that the devil doesn't have any legal authority anymore; he only operates on ability. Jesus already retrieved from him the authority he stole from Adam.
The only thing the devil has right now is ability.
I like you to know that every creature on the earth has ability.
Ability is defined as physical or mental stamina to do something.
This explained why every creature has a natural ability peculiar to its nature.
For example, a little child may not be able to carry a stone that an adult would carry effortlessly.
This is because the child’s ability is not the same as that of the adult.
Even animals also have varying abilities.
The strength of a lion cannot be compared with that of an elephant.
God created every creature with different forms of ability.
This is why no one can deny the devil of the ability endowed on him by his creation.
However, there is a line of difference between ability and authority.
While ability is naturally endowed, authority is legally or constitutionally endowed.
For example, a traffic officer has both ability and authority.
He has his natural strength as a full-grown adult, and also has the authority of the state to perform his duty.
This officer may not be able to stop a truck by his ability but he would easily do so by the authority of the state he represents.
In the same way, a police officer may lack the physical ability to carry out some arrests.
