You’re A General

You’re A General…

In warfare, a low ranking soldier isn’t appointed to fight a high ranking officer. The Book of Ephesians tells us we’re at war with a specific kind of enemy in the spiritual realm.

The English reads “principalities,” but the Greek word is “archay.” An archay is a chief, boss, head, or top-ranking power. In a war, an archay is a general. So you have been appointed to fight generals.

What does that make you in God? In the spiritual realm, by the power of God, you are the equivalent of a general! It means that in the spiritual realm, you’re a commander. It means you can’t live as one with no or little authority… as one who is ruled over by sin, or fear, or despair.

You’ve been given great authority. To fail to exercise that authority is a sin. To obey God, we must fully use the authority He has given us. Therefore, start acting like a general. Start using the authority of the Word, of His Name, and of His power. For not only are you on the winning side – but you’re a general.

And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. Colossians 2:15

Start using the authority of the Word, of His Name, and of His power against whatever you’re dealing with – Take authority and be victorious.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
