In part 1, we revealed there are some skeptics of God’s existence due to the negative things they see. They see “incurable” diseases, premature death, and other negative things and are skeptical of the existence of God.

We discovered the introduction of sin and Satan’s reign in the earth because of Adam’s disobedience caused every negative thing we see (the curse). We also revealed that mankind has free will and our decisions are influenced by God or Satan. So, the heinous acts people commit are a direct result of Satan’s influence.

For those in Christ, there’s hope. Jesus was sent to take mankind’s authority back from Satan. Jesus disarmed Satan, therefore, He could say all authority in heaven and earth has been given to Me (Matt. 28:18; Col. 2:15). For those in Christ, we have God-given authority over heinous acts, diseases, and premature death, but if we don’t use this authority, we’re no different from an unbeliever.

We activate our authority by faith. We must have faith in the authority we have in the name of Jesus, have faith that our words have power, and have faith in the blessing of God. When we have faith in all that God says we have in His Word, nothing can stop us.

No disease can overtake our bodies because we’re healed (Psalms 91:10; Isaiah 53:5). No premature death can overtake us because we’re promised long life (Gen. 6:3; Psalms 91:16). No heinous act can be done against us because we’re protected (Psalms 91:11).

This is the authority and covering we have in Christ. Believe God’s Word and never be a skeptic of God nor His Word again.

Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
