Rollover finding Studios in Memphis Tennessee a Byron Tyler Yearwood.

Vaughn, the CEO of lobar finding. Today Adrian Rogers starts. Part one of the coming kingdom of Christ and you know there will be a day come to God's will shall be done on earth as it is in heaven, will come a time when God's will will be fulfilled. And that's what were waiting on and we say, come quickly, come quickly. No Asian Roger says God wants for you what you would want for yourself if you had enough sense to want it. All of that statement.

I love that statement yet.

We talked about here recently. You know, God never says bring me your plan and I will bless it and rubberstamp it. None of the invites us to be on mission with him and that mission is always Byron eternity focused what year you know, the late Dr. Billy Graham was a personal friend Adrian Rogers. He once said, if you want a change in your life if you want forgiveness and peace and joy that you've never known before. God demands total surrender he becomes the Lord and ruler of your life. That's a great story in 1978 Dr. Graham was in Memphis with Dr. Rogers and he stated the holiday entity wrote a letter to Dr. Rogers. Afterwards, we have it in the lobby. They were great friends but what he saying is this God wants us to be all in.

And when we are 100% sold out to him. Then God begins to move this listener from Jordan. Kerry says I've been watching and listening to LWF ministries since the 1990s. Thank you for broadcasting these days. I miss Dr. Rogers. May his soul rest in peace and his ministry lives on.

It's all quick and it's at your fingertips. Well, for the coming kingdom of Christ. Part one hears Adrian Rogers you want to know the will of God. What you like to pray and know that you're in the will of God. God does not reveal his will to rebels.

Have you ever told me honestly. Sincerely, with all your heart with every inch with every ounce with every nerve every five as much is in you as said by will be done.

Have you been. If you have not, don't complain that you don't know the will of God.

Don't you think that it is an absurdity.

And don't you think it's a contradiction I really don't you think it's an insult to say I want to know the will of God.

But I'm not willing to do the will of God. You see, step number one in knowing the will of God is the surrender Prince another principle the surrender principle and the scripture principle. Now let me give you another verse of Scripture here. The Bible says in John chapter 15 verse seven Jesus said if ye abide in me and my words abide in you, then you shall ask what you will and it should be done at BU you abide in me, that surrender my words abide in you, that Scripture you take the word of God. This is God's revelation to you. It is God's word to you.

Do you want to know God's will.

Do you yourself will I like to know the will of God test how much time you spend in this book you think God really believes you when you say I want to know the will of God and yet you don't read the one book above all books that God is specifically written to show you his will to reveal his will to you to unfold his will.

Do you know what you think that there's a little bit of hypocrisy in a person says God I want more than anything else to do your will.

And yet he does not study the word of God to find out what the will of God is third Prince first, the surrender principle second one. The scripture principle. The third one the spirit principle now listen let me give you another verse of Scripture Romans chapter 8 verses 26 and 27 likewise the Spirit also help with our infirmities, for we know not what we should pray for as we are, but the Spirit himself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searches the hearts North what is the mind of the spirit. And here's the key. Romans 827 because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. It is surrender principle. I will well. Scripture principle is found in the word of God spirit principle the Holy Spirit of God helps you understand the word of God and help you to articulate your prayer in the will of God. That's the way to pray. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done to see this is the confidence that we have in him. If we ask anything according to his will be hereabouts by will be done by will be done.

Answered prayer is not the rebels.

The prayer that gets to heaven is the prayer that starts in heaven.

We just close the circuit you see you can be absolutely certain when you're praying in the spirit any prayer that the Holy Spirit lays upon your heart will be answered because the prayer that originates in heaven certainly is not going to be rejected. That's the reason is so important over and over and over again. The Bible tells us to pray in the spirit to pray in the spirit and pray in the spirit. You must be filled with the spirit you not going to be filled to spirit you surrender it all is linked together hired a beautiful definition of prayer. I love it is my favorite definition. Prayer may give to prayer is the Holy Spirit finding a desire in the heart of the father and putting that desire into our hearts and then sending it back to heaven and the power of the cross. Did you get prayer is the Holy Spirit finding a desire in the heart of the father putting that desire into our hearts and then sending it back to heaven and the power of the cross. So what is the kingdom of God. It is the kingdom of God's government by will be done. Second thing I want you to notice as we talk about the kingdom of God. Not only is it the kingdom of God's government, but it is the kingdom of God's grace if you will. Now in Hebrews chapter 4 and verse 16.

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, culture, love that a throne.

It speaks of his kingdom. It speaks of his rule zero from what kind of a kingdom is what kind of a throne is. Is it a throne of law is a throne of judgment. No kid is a throne of grace to more wonderful words cannot be put together a throne and grace. The kingdom of God is the kingdom of God's government, but it is also the kingdom of God's grace because if it were only the kingdom of God's government. All we can think about is the house and just he and Gloria's plan under which it will mess up the thrice holy God.

How can we ever dare, but the Bible says we can come right home we come right to a throne of grace, one that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. You say my faults keep me from coming to a throne of grace know my dear friend it sure falls that bring you to the throne of grace, it's your knee. That brings don't stairway because you have faults, and find mercy go stairway because your week and find help when you're praying for his kingdom to come. Not only is it a kingdom of God's government, but it is a kingdom of God's grace we come to a throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. The Bible says in Ephesians that in the ages to come he is going to show the riches of his great one of these days quotes all of the main toys of this world won't mean very much to you when the setting sun of your life mingles with the prepping dawn of eternity and you've laid down the toils and the toys of this world and your loved one stand around your casket.

All that will really matter than is God's amazing grace by kingdom come. It is the kingdom of God's government is the kingdom of God's grace to what else it is, it is the kingdom of God's goodness when you're praying for the kingdom to come to God's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.

What kind of the kingdom is. Let me give you another verse to put in your margin. Are you ready for Romans chapter 14 and verse 17 for the kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness and peace and the Holy Ghost. That's what the kingdom of God is it's a kingdom of God's government is the kingdom of God's grace and is the kingdom of God's goodness, righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. Are you in the kingdom.

Are you when it's here in the kingdom. These are three marks that you are in the kingdom number one righteousness don't know what the man is saved or not, to see if these righteous busy righteous I don't care how loud you shout, how high you jump I want to know how straight you walk when you come back down is this thing called Christianity is a change your life. Your religion attaches you live, you better change your religion when you go kill Avenue does not relate to the kingdom of God is not meat and grain is righteousness. But not only righteousness, peace, peace with God and the peace of God and peace that passes understanding. That's the kingdom that you're praying for to come and is the kingdom of jewel the kingdom of jewel. Let me go back to Joseph's on formal when I was preparing the sermon. I thought of what he told me also.

He said Adrian he said back in the 70s I was in my study I was pastoring a church near Bucharest and he said I was in my home when suddenly at my door. There came seven secret police that secure apartheid, the Communists sold they came into my house and said we going to search your house.

He said they turned my house upside down. They were looking for any kind of literature anything that I might have in my house that they could interpret as being against the government so they could put me in prison. Or maybe put me to death. They said they went to a house just looking turning everything over.

Know they don't have the kind the Constitution we had to keep soldiers just from breaking in your house and searching. Then he said they went into my study and began to go through every book that I had my you know a pastor's books are very precious doing there like friends to they went into the study and they began to go through my books looking for something that could be interpreted as being against the government. Perhaps some kind of anti-Communist literature that might be there. They said they wanted to use it all for evidence against me. So they took every book and made me sign on the flyleaf that this was found in my study one book after another.

They were taking down I had to sign. He said it was miserable. He said I did not sign many books when I later book before me know the title of the book was joy unspeakable and full of glory, is that you cannot believe what a miserable day. This was and there was a time of that book speak about, and full of glory and the subtitle was this, are you experiencing it now glory. Are you experiencing it now and he settled.

So yes, I am experiencing it now greater that all of this is your joy.

He said I knew that the joy of the Lord was to be my strength and I said to Elizabeth.

Elizabeth that's his wife.

These men are guest in our home, make some coffee for. Would you please and serve them coffee and he said from that moment own. I was in control.

What else is in control.

King was on his throne that my king was on his throne was all it was master the kingdom of God. The kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness, peace, and so in law Holy Ghost.

That's what you're praying for when you pray our father which art in heaven.

I name thy kingdom come. The kingdom of God's government.

He is sovereign kingdom of God's grace is merciful. The kingdom of God's goodness he is so good. The kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness and peace and joy all in the Holy Ghost. But there's one last thing you want to mention that you're praying for when you're praying our father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done where in Hassett is in heaven. That prayer is not yet been answered, but friend it will be answered because the kingdom of God is the kingdom of God's government is the kingdom of God's grace is the kingdom of God's goodness and it is the kingdom of God's glory. Let me take something for him. God is going to be glorified here upon this earth. He is going to rule here on earth.

The babe of Bethlehem is going to be the sovereign King of the whole world. When Jesus Christ came into this world. The angel made this birth announcement, but this first Avenue margin Luke one versus 32 and 33. I want you to listen to. Here's what the angel said about the baby that was born, he shall be great, and should be called the son of the highest and the Lord God shall give unto him, listen, book throne of his father David. The throne of David, and he shall reign over the house of Jacob, and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Now when he says the house of Jacob. He's talking they're not about spiritual Israel, but literalists were the house of Jacob.

Jacob is never a term that is used for spiritual Israel always for naturalist we're talking here about the earthly reign of the Lord Jesus Christ. Did you know that Jesus Christ ago to rule one more time here on earth did you know that I mean literally rule here on earth where he was born here on earth where a minister here on earth where he was crucified here on earth where he was buried on earth where he rose here on earth where he ascended to this earth. Jesus Christ is literally actually visibly bodily. Coming back to this earth believe that. I hope you do fraid he is going to rain all knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters that cover the sea. That's what the problem you think that Jesus Christ would've taught us to pray this prayer if it would not of been answered. His kingdom is not come yet. Owner's will is not being done on earth, but it shall be, it will be because our Lord taught us to pray that the day Jesus Christ as an outcast in the world of government in the world of education and in society.

Turn to Psalm two. If this does not set your heart on fire. Your wood is very wet Psalm to. Why do the heathen rage. I'll tell you why.

Rage is what you do when you don't know what else to do. Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine saying thing conveying means foolish. The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and against his anointed, that means against his Christ. That's the Hebrew word the Old Testament for the New Testament were Christ, the kings of the earth a high market a mock set themselves. I see them as a square.

Charles in rebellion is take counsel together they pulled their ignorance against the Lord and against his Christ saying their bands asunder, cast away their cords from us, the Lord, and we don't want his Christ with continue to read verse four he that sits in the heavens shall live, not the laugh of humor. It's the lack of RNA. The Lord shall have been induration.

They blasted him. He's the blood of the late-night jokes this nation is laughing his way into hell, but it will laugh its way out once it gets there. The Lord shall have them in the region, visually speaking to them in his wrath and vex them in his sore displeasure is coming a day of wrath, but here's the beautiful part in my Bible. I got one little word circled in red is verse six.

Yet what the Greek word PDA. Yet, in spite of the ravings and the rantings and the mouthing hobby agnostics the atheist. A human is the ungodly. The pervert have I set my king upon my holy don't you love that God has set his heart on this. My dear friend yeah when God gets ready to enthrone the Lord Jesus like people playing checkers. He's going to move his son of the king's Rohan say crowning crowd yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. I love that you love the holy hill of Zion is that's where the crucified premise was going to rain. Lord Jesus, and Zion is going to rain God has set his heart on how exciting is this what we're praying thy kingdom come, is the kingdom of God's glory.

First Timothy chapter 6 and verse 15, which in his time he shall show who is the blessed and only potentate, the King of King and Lord of lords in his time when Jesus was carrying his cross. The women were standing there weeping and lamenting can Jesus carry that cross stopped and looked up. So don't wait for me with previous.

This is your my hour has not yet come.

This is your hour by hour is not yet come. His time is coming, which in his time in his hour, he shall show who is the King of Kings and Lord of lords, the blessed and only potentate is kingdom. My friend is a kingdom of glory friend. He's not going to a four-year inauguration. He's going to need eternal coronation rain shower forever and ever and ever and ever. Jesus shall reign where the sun go to successive journeys run his kingdom spread from shore to shore to the moon shall wax and wane normal. He has a kingdom it's a kingdom of God's government. The kingdom of God's grace. The kingdom of God's goodness is the kingdom of God's people.

I can hardly wait for the kingdom to come. Even so, Lord Jesus Crown him with many crowns. The lion upon his throne Lord we want to Joan.
