As Jesus confronted the power of the enemy, He did NOT speak His OWN WORDS. He spoke the words that the Father had instructed Him to speak.
He cried out, "For I have not spoken of Myself; but the Father Which sent Me, He gave Me a commandment ... what I should say and what I should speak. And I know that His commandment is Life Everlasting; therefore, whatever I speak, even as My Father said unto Me, so I speak." (John 12:49,50.)
As Jesus spoke the words that the Father had given Him to speak, He did not doubt or wonder even one time if what He spoke would come to pass. He KNEW that He was speaking forth the words of Almighty God Jehovah. He KNEW that God's Word was all-powerful and WOULD come to pass!
Jesus spoke and the unclean spirits HAD to obey Him. The demons recognized the power and authority of His words ... and they obeyed ... they had NO CHOICE! The Word of God is irresistible. It's the ultimate power in all of Creation!
The Word of God has NOT CHANGED! The Word worked for Jesus when He spoke it! The Word will work for us when we speak it!
