Glory to Glory
2 Corinthians 3:18 (AMP)
"And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image from [one degree of] glory to [even more] glory, which comes from the Lord, [who is] the Spirit."
There are various levels of understanding of the Lord at which we move from "glory to glory". The process of accepting Jesus is one level, accepting "salvation" is another, and ultimately, identifying what God is saving you from is equally important. The process of walking out your salvation is another level since it involves putting an end to your sinful nature in order to embody the protocol of God's kingdom (born again).
Authority In His Name
Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
I bow down toward your holy temple and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word.
Our authority has been granted to advance God's kingdom by healing the sick, and defeating all powers of darkness in accordance with Jesus' teachings and the Bible. You speak to your enemy (sickness, addiction, poverty, etc) in Jesus' Name; you called upon the highest authority. This honor, this glory, this authority, this power is vested in the Name of Jesus He has given us to speak. He gave the Church the privilege of using the authority of His name.
Lesser authority submits or yields to a greater authority. You might be dealing with facts, but in Jesus' name, those "facts" you are facing have to yield to His name, and His word is exalted to a greater authority over the facts of an issue. Angels, men, and demons have to bow to that Name and submit to His word.
"And these signs shall follow them that believe; IN MY NAME shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover” (Matt. 28:18,19; Mark 16:17,18)
Listen carefully: I have given you authority [that you now possess] to tread on serpents (People who are viewed as wise but are liars) and scorpions (Poison injected into your body, mind, spirit), and [the ability to exercise authority] overcome all the power (deception, manipulation, traps) of the enemy (Satan); and nothing will [in any way] harm you. (Luke 10:19)
Childhood is the source of many of the problems people face. Having been rejected by a parent or sibling and affected their whole life, for example. You may experience things even though they weren't directed at you but were in your bloodline 30 generations before you were born (Exodus 20:5; 34:7; Numbers 14:18; Deuteronomy 5:9). Get your family stories ready and look back at your family history beyond your grandparents. Behaviors, traditions, and rituals are all influenced by your ethnic background and culture (indigenous, pantheism, polytheistic, pagan, cults, religious beliefs, and practices) You can ask God for the revelation of your ancestral history & write it down.
