December 2017 Newsletter Subject: A Man Under Authority

“For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.” [Matthew 8:9]”
And say unto him, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority to do these things? “[Mark 11:28]
“Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” [Matthew 21:21-22]
“Now see, that Roman recognized that Jesus of Nazareth had the authority over sickness, for he was a man in authority. And he knew what he said, it had to be. See? Now, he says to this man, if he's going that way, he said, "Come back this way," he has to do it. He has to, because he's in authority. Do you know whereof I'm talking about? All right. And he knowed Jesus had that much authority, and more, over sickness. He said, "I'm not worthy that such a holy Person as You would come under my roof. But I know what authority is. You just speak the Word, and my servant will live. Just speak the Word."  And Jesus said, "As thou hast believed. All right, go, thy son liveth," and so forth. All right. That's His... That's His Word. And His written Word tonight is a Seed that'll take life as soon as you believe His Word. It's just the same authority tonight over all sickness as It was then. And these Supernatural acts is to bring your faith back to Him, quicken it right quick (See?), make it quickened to Him. Now, but Jairus, he just couldn't see that when his daughter was die--dead. He said, "My daughter is dead. But come lay Your hands upon her." Now, if Jesus would've said, probably, "I'll speak the Word," Jairus couldn't hardly see Him speaking the Word. He wanted Jesus' hands to be laid upon him. And as soon as Jesus took the daughter by the hand, it confirmed his faith, and there it went. Is that right?” [51-0503, As I Was With Moses, Los Angeles CA]
“Now, look at Jairus. He said, "Come, and lay Your hands on her." That was his faith. That was a Jew. They were taught laying on of hands. The Roman, he didn't want it. He said, "I'm not worthy You come under my roof. Just speak the Word." He said, "I'm a man under authority. I have... I'm a centurion, and I have a hundred men under me. And they have to do everything I tell them. If I tell one to go and another one to come, they do just as I tell them. I have my power and authority over them." And what was he saying to Jesus? "I recognize You to be God in flesh." That's right. "I recognize that every disease and every sin is in Your power." Hallelujah. "It's under Your jurisdiction. You can speak to it. That's all You have to do, and every devil will mind You." Amen. He turned around and said, "I've not seen that kind of faith in Israel." But said, "Go your way, as you have believed, so be unto you." And the boy was healed.” [56-0731, Raising Jairus Daughter, Shreveport LA]
“And there, when He done all the miraculous while omnipotence, God manifested in flesh. "Speak the word, Lord, and my servant will heal. My servant won't--be--will live." He knew; that Roman Centurion knowed he was a man under authority, that he knowed that whatever is under him had--whatever he said, they had to do it. "And so I say to this man, 'Come,' and he comes and that man, 'Go,' and he goes." Said, "I'm a man of authority. And everything under my authority obeys me. And Lord, I am not worthy that You come in my house. Just speak the word." Hallelujah. He knowed that was Omnipotence. He knowed when Omnipotence spoke, miraculous would take place. Oh, my. There He stood at the grave of Lazarus, crying like a man in His flesh. Martha said, "Lord, if You'd only have been here, my brother not died. But even now, Omnipotence speaks. Whatever You ask God, God will do it. Whatever You say, He will do it." [56-0115, The Junction Of Time, Jeffersonville IN]
“When you come to total obedience, then you can have possession. But until you totally obey. You've got to completely surrender your own thoughts, your own will, your own mind, and let the mind of Christ operate in you. Now, do you think Christ would--the mind of Christ, in you, would say, "The days of miracles is past"? Do you think the mind of Christ, in you, would say, "The Bible's right in some places and not in others"? The mind of Christ would sanction every word that Christ ever said. It's right. So if you don't use your own mind, just use His mind. That's how visions at nighttime... If I use my own mind, how--what could I do? I couldn't do nothing. But just yield myself to Him, and then He uses my mind, my eyes, my mouth. He's my all. Just yield. That's the way you do it. That's the way these ministers do when they're preaching the Gospel. They get up there and take a text, why, they just start off to preach, and yield themselves to God, they're ministers, the first thing you know, the Holy Spirit maybe take them on another text, take them somewhere else.” [60-0802 El Shaddai, Yakima WA]
“It is a truth that I believe, as a physical man tears down, the spiritual man has a chance. That's what fasting and things are for. He can have a chance to work upon these five senses of ours, to bring us to believe and have faith in Him. I like the attitude of this centurion tonight, that we've just read of. He--he was a man that felt unworthy. As long as you're feeling unworthy of the blessing you're asking, you're pretty apt to get it. But when you get to a place where you think that God just owes it to you, that's when you're--you're mistaken. We're in debt to God, not God in debt to us. We're indebted to God.” [50-0815, Who Is God?, Tent Meeting, Cleveland, OH]
“He said, "I'm a man under authority." He was a centurion, which means that he had a hundred men under him, a Roman centurion. And he--he said, "I'm a man under authority. And I say to this man, 'Go.' and he goes; this man, 'Comes.' and he comes. He has to; he's under my authority. And I didn't even thought myself worthy to come to You, none of my nation. I sent a Jew to You." And said, "I... Only thing You have to do is just speak the word." What did he recognize there? That every sin, and every disease, and every thing else was under His authority. "Just say 'Go' and it will go." See what he did? Now, that's what I'm trying to get the American people to see. That it doesn't... You don't have to wait for a special time, for a certain evangelist to come through and to--to pray for you. Your pastor is sufficient. If the pastor isn't there, your neighbor's sufficient. If the neighbor isn't there, your husband or wife is sufficient. And if there's none of them there, just raise up your hands; He's sufficient always. Just wherever you are, believe it; believe it. It's a finished work.” [60-0710, The Queen Of Sheba, Klamath Falls OR]
“That's what the--not the idol, but what the individual ought to be dressed. Let us put on the whole armor of God (Amen.), the helmet of salvation, this great big shield the size of a door, of faith. Oh, brother. It's not what he is, but what he represents. That's what the officer... It ain't that little man standing there; he's just an ordinary man, but what he represents... Our Armor is Jesus Christ. Yes, sir. All devils slide their brakes when they see that. When they see that full armor of God, the true baptism of the Holy Ghost (Amen.), that seen It coming straight from the throne of God, dressed in the full armor of His resurrection... Amen. Not that you're strong, you're nothing. But it's What's behind you. Why? You are dead. You joined the army. You've joined the police force. You're going to keep law and control of these devils. That's right. You're on the police force; the whole thing's behind you. See, you're reckoned dead. You're nothing. You couldn't stop nothing. But your authority that's been given you, because you are raised and setting in heavenly places in Christ Jesus, the devil recognizes that. Everything slides its brakes when them hands goes up.”[61-1217, Christianity Versus Idolatry, Jeffersonville IN]
“Joshua stopped the sun. Is that true? Somebody said, "All things are possible with God, nothing impossible." But all things are possible to you also. Nothing impossible to them that believe. All things are possible. Brought right down and made you, if you just know Who God was. Well, I'm afraid that the Church doesn't know their authority. I'm afraid that Holy Ghost born men doesn't realize their authority where--or the authority that God has permitted to His Church. "I'll give unto thee the keys to the Kingdom. Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, whatever you loose will be loosed. I give you power over serpents, and over all kinds of diseases, oh, everything, and nothing shall harm you." Exercise your faith. Let it loose. Let God have His way. God will grant it to you.” [50-0815, Who Is God, Cleveland OH]
