Jesus gave his disciples authority to preach the good news of the kingdom of God and to cast out demons, heal the sick, save the lost, and set the captives free. Everywhere Jesus went, the kingdom came with power. There was no proclamation of the gospel without a demonstration of power. It was the authentic demonstration of Jesus’ power through his followers that ignited the greatest spiritual movements in the first century.
Today, we are becoming more like the spiritual climate in the first century than like 1950 America. In a pluralistic, syncretistic society where all deities are considered equal, only the unequal display of Jesus’ power will convince people of the supremacy of Christ. The key to demonstrating the power of the king is authority, and authority is not just positional; it is developmental. Spiritual authority is rooted in identity, expanded in intimacy, and activated by faith. This book takes an in-depth look at how we can grow in identity, intimacy, and faith so that we can develop our authority and release the kingdom.
