Numbers 24:16-17King James Version (KJV)16 He hath said, which heard the words of God, and knew the knowledge of the most High, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open:
17 I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.
Jesus has declared:
"All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth" (Matthew 28:18 ).
A Sceptre is a staff that is a sign of authority of the one who possesses it.
Jesus has authority
A man holding his hand up in the middle of the road is no match for a big Mac truck.
But if the man is wearing a certain uniform and wearing a badge then that which the man represents gives him the authority to stop that truck even though he in and of himself, as a man, is no match for the size and power of that truck.
A Sceptre is representing authority.
It matters not if the Scepter is a shepherds staff or an ornate bejeweled golden diamond studded staff.
The authority which the Scepter represents is what gives it impressive power.
"Here I am, here is my name and here is the Sceptre that declares my authority."
Jesus is God's Scepter given to us.
We have authority in Jesus name.
I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you (Luke 10:19 ).
The name of Jesus is our Scepter that gives us authority.
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it ( John 14:14 )
The only condition being "in my Name."
We can use the Scepter of His name!
Authority is the power or right to give orders, make decisions, and enforce obedience.
Jesus name is authority.
Authority is power given.
The Sceptre of authority and power is Jesus Christ.
