Your Physical Body: The Symbol of Your Spiritual Authority in the Earth
Have you ever wondered what the door was?
Satan tried to rule the earth without a physical body and Jesus called him a robber and a thief! John 10:1
But in referring to Himself, Jesus said, "... He that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep," John 10:2
So, have you ever wondered what that door was?
In the natural sense a door is the legal means of entry into a restricted area.
The earth is a restricted area; it was created by God and is still owned by Him. It's His private property!
So if one wants to come from the spirit realm and enter in and operate legally in the earth realm, he needs to have legal access! He needs to go through the door!
The door to the earth (legal access) is being born of a woman and possessing a physical body!
Anyone who tries to operate on earth without a physical body is trespassing and guilty of sinning against God! Jesus said, "...Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me," Heb 10:5
Jesus accessed the earth and the people of the earth (the sheepfold and the sheep) legally, by being born of a woman... Satan did not!
Jesus is the authorized shepherd of the sheep... Satan is not!!!
Why is the chief end of a demon always to possess a human being? Because they are spirits without bodies and they need to possess a body in order to operate more effectively in the earth!
Still illegally... but more effectively!
When a demon inhabits a person's body he has limited authority through that person because he's now operating through a physical body, but a man or woman of God who comes in the name (authority) of Jesus Christ ALWAYS has superior authority over any demon!
Your physical body is the symbol of your authority in the earth! Not your spirit, not your soul... your body!
That's why as a rule, when your body dies, you cease to affect the earth! You still have your spirit and soul, why can't you still continue to affect life? Because you have no authority to affect the earth without a body!
You have no authority to affect life from death!
The incident involving the prophet Samuel, King Saul and the witch of Endor is one notable exception to this rule! Another exception is when Moses and Elijah counseled Jesus on the Mount of Transfiguration!
But that's why you do have authority over demons, they are spirits without physical bodies, therefore they have no authority in the earth!
Because you were born of a woman you can command them! They cannot command you! The only reason demons can control some humans is because they are deceived into giving up their authority to these demons and allowing them access to manipulate their will!
The fundamental reason why Jesus' name has authority in the earth is because... he came in the flesh!!! If He had stayed in heaven, none of the authority we have in His name would be possible! In the bible, God was only able to promise change until He got Himself a body!
Promises like, "Behold, a virgin shall conceive...!" "For unto you a child is born...!" "The seed of the woman shall...!"
From Genesis to Malachi God was promising change, but the only time we actually saw change is when He finally got a physical body and came to earth!
