“Whenever Aaron and his sons bless the people of Israel in my name, I myself will bless them.” -Numbers 6:27
In the nation of Israel, the priests were God’s authorized representatives on earth. Yahweh gave them the authority to act “in my name”, and as such, they mediated His favor to the people.
Now, the Church of all believers is the authorized representative of God. We ourselves are the ones to whom God has given the right to act “in my name”, to whom He has given “the keys to the Kingdom”, the right of blessing and cursing.
We have the authority. What are we doing with it?
