Authority is arguably one of the most important issues of our time. Receiving Authority is a message from Scott M. Shafer stemming from the culmination of years of study, experience, reflection and observation. It reveals a relational paradigm that centers on the person of Jesus Christ as the source of true authority for the believer and the importance of its role for increasing both influence and effectiveness. Regardless of gender, age, economic status or ethnic background, authority at higher levels is available for every believer. Of importance is identifying areas of flawed mindsets and the resulting abuse of authority. Receiving Authority examines particular concerns for the abuse of authority that exists today. Lastly, the relationship of prophecy and the increase of authority is a primary consideration for the development of those exercising the gift of prophecy and demonstrating the works of Jesus.
