POWER TO THE 12-70 then to ALL

I. HE GAVE THE POWER AND AUTHORITY TO THE 12 DISCIPLES

Luke 9:1 Then he called his twelve disciples together,
and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. Luke 9:2 And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. Luke 9:3 And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece. Luke 9:4 And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart. Luke 9:5 And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them. Luke 9:6 And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing everywhere.

II. HE GAVE THE POWER THEN TO ANOTHER 70!

Luke 10:1 After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. : 2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. Luke 10:5 And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house. Luke 10:9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

A. THE 70 ALSO HAD POWER OVER THE DEVIL

Luke 10:17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. Luke 10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. (KJV)
1. THE GREAT REJOICING IS OUR NAME IS WRITTEN IN HEAVEN.

III. THEN HE GAVE TO THE WHOLE CHURCH

Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

A. THIS WHAT HE TOLD THE 12 AND THE 70 NOW HE TELLS THE WHOLE CHURCH.

Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

B. HE GAVE THE 12 AND 70 POWER OF HIS NAME AND NOW HE GIVES THE WHOLE CHURCH THE POWER OF HIS NAME!

   1. TO CAST OUT DEVILS, HE GAVE THE 12 AND 70 AND NOW TO THE WHOLE CHURCH

   2. SPEAKING IN NEW TONGUES SOMETHING EXTRA FOR THE CHURCH

   3. HE GAVE HIS DIVINE PROTECTION TO THE 12 AND THE 70 DISCIPLES.
Luke 10:19 (KJV) Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

   4. NOW HE GIVES HIS DIVINE PROTECTION TO THE CHURCH.
Mark 16:18 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.

C. HEAL THE SICK, HE GAVE THE 12 AND 70 AND HE GIVES THE SAME COMMISSION TO THE WHOLE CHURCH.
HEB 13:8. MAL. 3:6

He gave the 12 and 70 POWER OF HIS NAME AND NOW HE GIVES THE WHOLE CHURCH THE SAME POWER AND COMMISSION.

God bless you and yours!
