Authority Trumps Power
boblarson.org| I don’t play cards. Never have. Apologies to those of you who do. It’s just too boring.
Luke 10:19 “I have given you authority to . . . overcome
all the power of the enemy . . .” NIV
But I do understand the word “trump.” It means that any card you are holding of a particular suit, at that moment, outranks the other suits, and the card you hold is able to excel any card of another suit. At that time, it’s superior, it outdoes all the rest. (The Donald must love this definition if he happens to be reading!)
By biblical definition, according to Luke chapter 10, the authority given to us by Christ, trumps, excels the power of Satan.
