Empower means to give power or authority to; to authorize. It is a legal term that gives authority and spiritual power. When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior He empowers us to be able to help others.
Authority is a legal agreement that disciples of Jesus have over the enemy. Real power comes from God. When we are restored to God, we become His children and therefore receive power from the Holy Spirit and authority in the spirit realm. Jesus has the power because He is the Son of God and He can bestow that power on others. At the cross, He defeated the forces of darkness, all evil spirits, fallen angels, and the devil. Therefore all spirits of darkness must obey Him. When we follow Jesus we become His disciples and He gives us authority to heal the sick, cast out demons and evil spirits. Jesus has given empowered us to come closer to Him and to defeat the enemy so that other people can be set free.

Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
