A Biblical Understanding Of The Authority Of The Believer

The bible teaches us to resist the devil and he will flee from you. Get equipped!

What you'll learn

  • Have a clear understanding of what Jesus did for us on the cross.
  • Have a clear understanding of the authority Jesus has given to His church.
  • Have a clear understanding of how to use our authority in the earth.


  • As a supplementary resource, students can obtain the book, The Believer's Authority in the Earth, by M.E.B. Maher (Amazon, 2018) ISBN: 978-0639943213. The book is available in print and digital formats.

1 Peter 5:8-9 “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. (9) Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.”

All unbelievers are in Satan’s kingdom, and he holds sway over all of them to a greater or lesser degree, and so none of them pose any threat to his reign in the earth. But there is a group of people in the earth today, over which he holds no sway, because they are not in his kingdom, and that is the church of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is precisely because believers are not subject to the devil, that they are the greatest threat to his reign in the earth. And so, Satan does everything in his power to destroy the church of our Lord Jesus in the earth, which is why the above passage refers to him, as our adversary. In this passage, the Holy Spirit reveals a number of truths to us, about our adversary, how he operates, and how the believer can deal with him. This course examines what God’s word says, on the subject of the believer’s authority over the devil in the earth.

This course is meant for all audiences. No previous theological study is required or expected, for it is meant to give a basic understanding of what the bible says about the subject of the authority of the believer.

Michael Maher will lecture from the bible, to walk the student through the subject of the believer's authority, so that the saint can apply godly principles to their Christian walk in this area. Quizzes have been developed to help test comprehension of the video lectures.

This course focuses on explaining the biblical view of the believer's authority. As a supplementary resource, this course can be taken in tandem with the reading of Michael Maher’s book, The Believer's Authority in the Earth.

I trust that the material and the dialogue with other students will be encouraging and enlightening for all.

Who this course is for:
  • This is an entry level course for anyone wishing to understand what the bible teaches about the authority of the believer.
  • This course is not for those who wish to enter into religious debates.

From childhood, Michael E.B. Maher has always known that the Lord's call was upon his life for the ministry. When he was saved at the age of twenty-two, almost immediately the Lord Jesus began to deal with him about entering the ministry. However, it was only many years later that he committed to the Lord to answer the Lord's call to the ministry. And so, in 2014 Michael Maher Ministries was begun. From the beginning, the mandate given to Michael from the Lord Jesus was to preach the word. And so, this ministry preaches the word of God on every available platform around the world.
