Turning Captivity into Authority – Message from Apostle Lyon Sunday, August 13, 2017


“In your darkest hour, God will equip and prepare you for your future and turn your captivity into authority.” (Apostle Don Lyon)

If you have been a Christian for a time, undoubtedly you have heard the biblical account of Daniel in the lion’s den and of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego being thrown into a fiery furnace. Deliverance by the hand of God was their testimony. Neither fiery heat nor lions could destroy them, but compromise would have.
They would not, could not dishonor the God they served by bowing to a king’s wishes. Compromise was not their way. True authority comes out of captivity when you don’t compromise.

Time and gain, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego were taken from captivity to authority. Captivity was not their problem, and it’s not your problem! Your value is being free … free with the authority of God. That’s where your victory comes in. Daniel moved into absolute authority over and over again. Over and over again, Daniel took a stand and God stood with him and each time Daniel was taken to a higher place of authority!

No matter what circumstance or authority seems to be against you, always remember that God is greater than all of it. Read the short book of Daniel and see how your captivity can be turned into authority. Be like Daniel and the three Hebrew children. If you face a bondage situation or are up against an ultimatum, stand with God. He is on your side. Walk in the authority He has given you. It’s free!
