In this message, Adrian Rogers reveals how to come against the enemy from a position of victory through the warfare of prayer.


We were born again we were born with. Listen closely to Adrian Rogers what he realizes about where about the victory is ours and the Lord Jesus Christ. See because of what Jesus Christ did for us on the cross died because of our birth into the kingdom we have now kingdom of our and when we were born again we were born to win welcome to love where my pastor teacher in authoring.

Roger said prayer is not our destination is at the point of origin. We were born again, we became spiritual freedom fighters in God's invasion army.

We cannot be neutral in the spiritual battle. We are in a fight to the finish. We must learn how to come against the enemy and use our kingdom authority in the warfare prayer.

If you have your Bible turn to Luke chapter 10 will begin in verse 17 is Adrian Rogers begins part one of the warfare of prayer. How the world warfare is an important word for what he realizes about where about a fight to the finish. I discussed sinister foe. No holds barred. We cannot be neutral and we cannot call for a cruise. Gen. Douglas MacArthur said, and rightly said in war. There is no substitute for victory and the victory is ours and the Lord Jesus Christ is were going to see because of what Jesus Christ did for us on the cross and because of our birth into the kingdom we have now kingdom authority and when we were born again we were born to win.

I hope you will learn that today.

I pray God that the Holy Spirit will emblazoned not upon your heart. As we read that in the book of Chronicles, the battle is not New Orleans. It is the Lord's Nellis see what God says here in Luke chapter 10 and verse 17.

I let me preface this by saying the Jesus commission 70 to go out and preach, he gave them a foreign and when they came back with Greg Choi. Here's what they said and the 70 returned again with joy, saying even the devil's are subject unto us through by name did you get us into the 70 returned with joy, saying the law. Even the devil's that literally means the demons are subject unto us through by name and he said under their I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

Behold, I give you power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you my Lord Powers used twice in the King James Scriptures, but integrate the two different words for power. The first word means authority and may be translated. Behold, I give you authority over all the power of the enemy with three things today I want to put on your heart. As we talk about our spiritual warfare over Satan and that warfare by the way is prayer but first of all, kingdom authority has been sovereignly established what we mean by authority. Will Webster says authority is the power on the right to command black to enforce obedience or to make final decisions. And then he says this power as delegated to another authorization and he has my authority to do it now. That's what the B 70 understood Lord.

The demons are subject to loss through by name in the name of Jesus we have the victory. You see, our authority comes from him. It has been sovereignly established Adam and Eve were created and placed in the garden of Eden, and given dominion given dominion over all of their let them have dominion over the works of my hands.

God said, but Adam and Eve Sam. They yielded their dominion to Satan.

They lost the crown they became slaves of Satan and all of the children of Adam and Eve our sons and daughters of slaves and slaves themselves. Adam lost his dominion, Lord Jesus, the second Adam, the last Adam came to this earth as a man took flesh and blood and brought back Adams lost the state. This dominion was illegally lost.

It must be righteously regain. God owes the devil nothing but God will be true to his own legality his own sense of righteousness and justice and proof, and so God did not just simply snatch that authority back from Satan kill the devil and give it Adam it was lost by man and it was regain by man. It was lost by the first Adam, it was regain by the second Adam.

The Lord Jesus.

And so the Bible says in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. That dominion has been bought back just put your bookmark there. If you will, in Luke chapter 10 and turn with me to Colossians chapter 2 verse 13. He's going to give your spiritual biography right here now this is talking about you it says and you and you, being dead in your sins.

And in the on circumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together. Now the word quick and the means may live together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us and to get out of the way, nailing it to his cross_that mailing it to his cross and having spoiled principalities and powers. He made a show of them openly triumphing over them in yet. Now, folks in three verses there you got some spiritual dynamite and I want you to pay attention and find out how this this kingdom authority has been sovereignly established. I want you to see how Jesus on the cross brought Satan's kingdom crashing down. I want you to see what the Lord Jesus Christ. Did you see you and I being slaves were in bondage. But Jesus came to set the captives free. First of all, we were in bondage to spiritual death. Look in verse 13 and you, being dead in your sins, hath he quickened. Now, folks limit to how bad off. We were we were not just sick in our sins we were dead. You'll have to wait to your heart stopped beating for you to be bad. The Bible says, she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she lives.

Jesus said I've come that you might have life and have it abundantly. Your heart is already beating a man a woman a boy or girl that Jesus Christ is BEA be dead right right in Adam all die in Christ all made alive.

So the very first thing Jesus came to set us free from spiritual death. But now watch this not only spiritual death, but spiritual DEB team we are in debt because of our sins. Heaven has sued us for damages. We are guilty before God and in debt because of our sin, but now notice verse 14 Jesus was blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross. Now you ready for blessing. Listen to it olden times in Bible times when a man was accused of a crime, a handwriting of ordinance would be written against his indictment would be written down and then this handwriting ordinance was delivered to the judge and there would be trial and if he were adjudicated guilty they would write on this description of his crime, the penalty, the debt that was good. I suppose that he was to spend 10 years in prison and so they would write only air he has done thus and thus and thus and here's the penalty here is the debt that is due and it is written on the certificate of debt. This handwriting ordinance, then they would put that man in the present and then they would mail to the prison door that certificate a bit and I would tell what he had done what the judge had sentenced him to and what he must pay now. Once he had fulfilled his time in jail. Once he had paid his debt to society and to the king, then they would release him from jail.

They would take that handwritten bill and the clerk would take it back to the judge. The judge would say.

Has he paid in full. As he paid to the very last day as his men satisfied against the crown. Yes, John. He is paid in full. The judgments on the King which of the case may be, would take that certificate a bit and right across it one word, matter-of-fact and ancient documents, we find this word written on certificates of debt, even in the Dead Sea Scrolls. They found it written, it is the same word that Jesus uttered from the cross is word catalyst. I which literally means paid in full. He would take us can take that certificate of debt that had been nailed to the prison door right across it last time.

That is, it is paid.

It is finished to him now. He walked out of that courtroom, having had his debt paid.

There's nothing again that the law can bring up against him. That is gone. It is buried it is finished. It is paid in full.

Now I want you to imagine Almighty God.

Going through all of the record of all mankind from Adam right up to the last person who will ever be born, and taking all the crimes all of the sins all the lies, all of the hate all of the pride all the rape, all the murder.

All of the blasphemy all every sin writing it down on a certificate of debt for mankind. Mice in your seminar sin and what did he do with it. He said we are guilty. But then what you do.

He took it and mailed it to the cross nailed it to the cross. If a man if a man were guilty of a capital crime is going to die. They did not put the certificate of debt on the cell door.

They put it on the cross printer when Jesus Christ was crucified. What did they do, they put an accusation over his head, king of the Jews. What was he guilty of what was the capital crime insurrection. He claimed to be a king. They said he's the king of the Jews. That's why he's dying. My friend Paul says that he took our certificate a bit. He took the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, took it out of the way and he may do his cross, and when he died he bowed his head and what did he say that to Lester paid in full, paid in full. Sign with the crimson blood of the very son of God. So now the devil is the accuser of the brethren, and Satan will accuse you to God you say you see that man Adrian Rogers. He claims to be a preacher.

But Jesus said if you are righteous God, you fling them into hell. Within my attorney appears as name is Jesus is in no way just a minute. Father, here's a certificate of day it is paid in full and blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute iniquity paid in full.

If he doesn't do any good with God the father who come to me and you say you know good, you deserve to live. You think you're so saying you think that you're a child of God. What about all those bad things you've done, what about those thoughts. What about those failures and I just take my certificate a bit. Wave it in his face.

Wave it in his face. That's the reason the apostle Paul said in Romans eight Shelley anything to the charge of God's elect.

It is God that justified Jesus paid it all. Not only have we been brought out of bondage from our spiritual that we've been Quicken made alive.

The Lord Jesus, but also from our staggering debt for staggering debt, but I wait a moment is 1/3 thing that is not only our spiritual death, not only our staggering debt but also satanic dominion we been set free from Matt Malik and Colossians 2 verse 15 and having style principalities and powers. He made a show of them openly try something over them in it, balances, principalities and powers.

What you talking about is talking about Satan's dark kingdom. Remember Ephesians chapter 6 for we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers in spiritual wickedness in high places. But what did Jesus do when he died on the cross, he really in the Satan, now look first of all, of the word spoil you see it and having spoiled principalities and powers that weren't spoiled duo into a living means to strip district have ever seen. Maybe a Fillmore person up an army officer is being disgraced.

Maybe he's sinned against the state and have all of these metals only and comes up there in his superior officer just reaches out to those metals in that insignia stripped from them never see anything like that.

That's exactly what this word has the idea of stripping it actually meant to take the hide from an animal he's Satan has been stripped and then the Bible says he made a show of them openly.

He is is now stripped of all his royal regalia. He had dominion. He calls himself the God of this world peace is all the king of the world meant to me. But when Jesus died on the cross, he stripped him of that and then he made a show of him openly look at that verse and made a show of them openly. That is a shame not only strip buddy Shane. He's made a show he's made a laughing stock, but King has no holes basement strap. He's been Shane and then assist try something over them is an idiot and walk in his death on the cross. He's been subdued that you enemy strap all by mighty Calvary bride of Hebrews says of Jesus that he would destroy him that had the power death, that is, the devil, that's what the second Adam did Dunn do what the first Adam. You got that you understand this authority has been sovereignly established by the devil that want to learn that you want to learn the king has no clothes not want you to know that he is been strip shame and subdued.

Okay, but you know it now, don't you know it's amen John know what I know, I know what you let him intimidate you anymore is the second thing this authority that has been sovereignly established. This same authority must be strongly enforced by Senate wait a minute Adrian. If it has been so sovereignly established, why does it need to be strongly enforced because Satan is an imposter and he does not give up anybody or anything without a fight and his plight is deception.

He always tried to pull the veil of darkness over his nefarious king he does not want you to understand what is happening in many people don't realize this.

How many people think that the Satan still has power, he only has power to those who allow him the habit, was a pastor I don't understand if he's been defeated. Why then must I enforce my authority over him because you most appropriate what God is already done. We do this in many areas.

For example, Jesus died for everybody. First John chapter 2 says this of the Lord Jesus is says he is the propitiation for our sin.

That's a big double-jointed word but a living means he's the satisfaction for sin is the propitiation for our sins, and then John says and modifies only but also for the whole world. When Jesus died he died for the world. What is all the world say no why because what is absolute. His death must be appropriated by faith right. The fact that Jesus died for you and Pedro send it will do you no good unless you believe only need a believable name is not condemn but he that believe is not is condemned already, because he did not believe in the name of the only begotten son of God, you no longer want me to go to hell because of your lying or stealing our pride or in the last that has been painful, but you most appropriate.

What is been was absolute, but it must be appropriated, let's think about spiritual power when the Holy Spirit came on the day of Pentecost God poured out his Holy Spirit to the infant church and we don't need to pray for another Pentecost. We don't need to pray, Holy Spirit, Holy Spirit has come when you quit asking God to do what is already done and be like asking Jesus to die for our sins. The Holy Spirit has come, and God has poured out incredible dynamic power, but let me ask you question is every Christian spirit filled does every Christian have Holy Spirit know why because they have not appropriated that which is already absolute. You see it is there but it must be appropriate malice. Talk about your dominion over Satan has Satan's back been broken yes as his kingdom in writing. Yes, you have authority.

Yes, but you must appropriate and enforce that authority.

Satan is not going to give up. These were in his dark kingdom. You see, Satan is holding people Turn back if you will with me for just a moment to look chapter 4, I will show you the condition of these were captives of Satan. This is an amazing passage of Scripture here Luke chapter 4 the Lord Jesus is at his hometown of Nazareth's time for the sermon.

Jesus steps up to give the sermon now and he takes Vortex Isaiah chapter 61 and this is what Jesus says because the Old Testament prophesied the Lord Jesus I read verse 17 first and there was delivered on the him the book of the prophet Isaiah's and when it open the book, he found the place where it was written, the spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the pool. These are those will bankrupt the poor is not talking only about those who financially pull that includes that buddies talking here spiritual.
