Children of God have incredible kingdom authority. Listen to Adrian Rogers folks there is a power that exceeds atomic power so incredibly is not even worthy of comparison that is the power that God wrought in Christ when he raised him from the dead, and has given that Holocaust that Bowers called Dorothy if you're a child of God, you have credible authority and power.

Whether you discovered it when you split the spiritual outlet on there to worry dynamic teaching and insights much. As Christians, most of us can accept Jesus Christ is King and he has authority. However, some of us to grasp that he is given that kingdom authority to his servants, we are in a spiritual battle. We are up against the organized, mobilized and demonized power of hell. Therefore, we need to understand what kingdom authority is ordered to utilize. If you have your Bible turned out it was Ephesians chapter 1 beginning in verse 15 as Adrian Rogers tells us more about our kingdom authority back in 1940 Enrico Fermi and some other man in a makeshift Labrador actually a handball court at the University of Chicago work and Einstein's theory of relativity and they began to apply and they said we can divide weekends split Adam and released power in a ratio of 1 to 6 million. That's what they did and atomic age began power was there all the time but was no undiscovered therefore unapplied folks. There is a power that exceeds atomic power so incredibly is not even worthy of comparison, and that is the power that God wrought in Christ when he raised him from the dead, and has given that power to us that power is called kingdom authority and we read about it in the book of Ephesians and I want you began in chapter 1 verse 15, Paul learned that the Ephesians had given themselves to Christ they learn of their faith in Christ and then he began to pray for them. He began to pray over God help them understand how that is inherently there is through the work of Christ, dear God, help me today as I preach, but I might be an instrument to help the people of God understand this, Melissa. What Paul said. He said wherefore I also after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and love and all the saints. They were saved and they love one another, but he's not satisfied. He said I cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers. What would you like to eavesdrop on his prayer.

Would you like to find out what he prayed for when pray flow.

Saints at Ephesus that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him. I want you to have wisdom Revelation and knowledge about your Savior. That's what he saying the eyes of your understanding being enlightened, that you may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of his power on the store that only send help and understanding exceeding greatness of his power to us were not just power the power to us who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, which he wrought in Christ when he raised him from the dead and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is me, not only in this world but also in that which is. And I put all things under his feet under Jesus feet and gave him to be the head over all things to the church which is his body, the fullness of him that feel at all and all what you understand and know what he's talking about. There is the kingdom authority that belongs to the children of God. And if you're a child of God. I want to tell you something friend you have incredible authority and power. Whether you discovered it when you split the spiritual Adam or not it's there inherently.

You know the Bible says that God has made us kings and priests look to the person to your right. The person you're left there's a king and there's a priest if there's a whole man looking and if you say that your child of God. Looking back at you will be a king antifreeze God is made us a kingdom of priests, as one former pacifist church Dr. Robert G. Lee told store.

I used to love. Tell about how we got on the train.

One time he was tired even talking to so many people. He just wanted to be quiet. You won't talk to anybody reset. I sat down next to man was wearing clerical roles and all the black suit and white turnaround collar and so forth.

Beside I really was not in the mood for conversation be said that man turned to me and said you what you do, Dr. Lisette, I look back at him is that I'm a king who said what you said you don't look like a king is that I'm also a priest is not dressed like a priest and then Dr. Lee said you know he was wearing his collar back. He said that's all right if he wants to do that is that is all right a man wants to walk in his collar when I back into my having mostly grass but he said I am priest Minutemen said all I know who you are you a Baptist preacher had rented a Baptist preacher, however, to be a king and a priest are a queen and a priest. If you know the Lord, because God has given all his children. That's what we going to be looking at.

That's what we gotta be studying today and basically this is just the foundational message and I pray that God the Holy Spirit will write three crews upon your heart today. Now here's the first thing you want to learn that kingdom authority was gloriously given at gloriously given our graciously given Adam put in your margin there. Ephesians 1 Genesis 1 verse 26 and it tells how God created the first man in the first woman to put them in the garden of Eden in Genesis 1 verse 26 speaks of the holy Trinity in Council God the father, God the son and God the Holy Spirit and God said, let us father son and Holy Spirit make man in our image, let us make man in our image, after our likeness, and let them have dominium on the school.

The word booming and that means room let us make man in our image does God ruled as he rain. Of course he does. Does God have dominion yes God says I want a creature like me. I want someone to rule and reign. I want him to have dominium all the earth. Let us make man in our image, and let them have dominion. So Adam was given dominion over the earth, Adam and Eve to be king and queen said at the place of authority.

The word dominion means to rule over to tread down the things of this earth would be under his feet, no king, David wrote the Psalms by divine inspiration. One night was looking up at the stars that candelabra and he said hello when I consider the heaven work of your hands. I look out into the fast nether reaches of space. What is me mindful of him, and the Son of Man without vested, what is man, and then he said by divine inspiration.

What man is in verse six thou latest him. That is man to have dominion over the works of Linehan, thou has put all things under his feet. That's how God made Adam. God gave the first man but as we going to see the lost look around today. You don't see the sons of Adam ruling and reigning and having dominion over this earth as God gave spiritual dominion. Something has gone all consult this morning's newspaper read about the death of the disease they hate the war, the crime, the lust of sorrow and disappointment. That is where I think about a little boy was sitting on the front steps of the schoolhouse crime, the gender son crying there.

So what's wrong son one little boy was to bring his birth certificate to school and his mother told to be very careful, son.

That's an important document. Don't lose any lost janitor said what's wrong son. He said I lost my excuse for being born is what I Adam lost the reason that God created him. God made him to have dominion. It was graciously gloriously given God.

Okay, here's the second thing I want you Mustaine not only was it graciously and gloriously given but it was legally lost not just lost legally lost. Adam took that dominion, that God had given to him and Adam gave that dominion to Satan. Obviously Satan deceived. Obviously Satan a con artist deceived Adam, but nonetheless Adam, faithless, unbelieving disobedient Adam yielded to Satan and became Satan slave. That's what the third chapter of Genesis is all about how that circuit crawled his slimy corroding path into the pages of history and deceive the first man in the first woman board circuit literally means shining one when he was created, he was greeted a holy angel that was no synonym. God did not create a devil. God created a holy angel with the power of choice and then Angel rebelled against Almighty God and Lucifer, the son of the morning became Satan, the father of the night and he was banished from heaven. No sooner had he unsheathed his sort of rebellion when the funders of Jehovah's righteous judgment spoke, and Jesus and I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven, but is cast out to beer and now Satan begins a battle on this earth. He attempts to achieve alert 20 failed to achieve in heaven. Now he wants to enthrone himself on earth and who now has dominion over the earth. Adam's Satan mostly assert that dominion. Satan wants that authority. So he comes to Adam answering adroit movie gets Adam to obey him, and Adam heals himself to Satan.

He doesn't understand what is going on now Satan says that you will be is going. Adam did not become God. He became Satan's late Romans chapter 6 is a very important verse right here and I want to jot this down in your margin don't turn to read it. Romans chapter 6 verse 16 the apostle Paul explains it this way, don't you know that to whom you yield yourselves servants or slaves to obey his servant are his slave. You are the King James gives it servant, but the Greek word is slaying became he yielding to Satan. He became a slave of Satan's kingdom authority was gone. He lost his legal right to rule.

Now, when Satan tempted Jesus. This is a key verse right now. Don't miss when Satan tempted Jesus. He tempted Jesus to worship him to worship Satan, but here's how he tempted Jesus. He showed him all the kingdoms of this world, the glory of power the splendor of those kingdoms and then this is what Satan had the city to say to the son of God and the devil. 7 AM all this power will I give the and the glory of them for that is the never on to me and to whomsoever I will give Jesus didn't contradict Jesus did not remonstrate against what he had said.

He said Jesus if you worship me. I will give you the power, the glory, the authority of this world because he said it has been delivered to me. It was delivered to him. God gave it to Adam. Adam delivered it to Satan and Satan said I'll give it to you Jesus. If you just worship me. It was graciously given.

It was legally lost. Satan says it has been given to me and man is spiritually dead and spiritually dethroning that legally he is lost the authority of the kingdom authority that was given to him therefore continue to read in Ephesians chapter 2 now verse one and you happy Quicken who were dead in trespasses and sins Adam who was given life.

Now is the and the sons about my dad Adam who was given authority is now dispossessed and dethrone and notice where in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.

What is that spirit that now works in the children of disobedience. That's the spirit of now the Bible calls him in second Corinthians 4 verse four God of this world. Paul later on in Ephesians chapter 6 and verse 12 says we're not wrestling against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against power against the rulers of the darkness of this dark press rules in this world because delivered it over to Satan. It was gloriously given. It was legally lost. Now we going to tighten the focus a little bit. Now you can understand why Jesus Christ came. It was legally lost. It must be righteously regain. The question comes if Satan is not all of this. Satan has all of this power. This malevolent influence. Why doesn't God just step in. Why doesn't God just killed the devil obliterate evaporating chili vanishing and just take that authority and give it back down.

If God were to do that it would be a farce of divine judgment. God would be fixing it but he would be fixing it were me, God owes Satan nothing but God owes much to his own sense of righteousness, wholeness and justice.

It was legally lost. It must be legally regain now where was I given it was given to a man, how is it lost, it was lost by man.

How must it be regained.

It must be regained by a man by man. God could destroy Satan as God. He's Jehovah God heals the devil, nothing Satan has absolutely no power over Almighty God.

They could be completely destroyed but God is going to be true to his own righteousness is holiness his own justice and by a man. He's going to destroy the power Satan let me do some verses that back this up God's plan must center in a man first released chapter 15 verses 21 and 22 four cents by man came death, by man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ. Even so in Christ shall all be made alive. Only two men really Beverly Adam and Jesus. Neither you and Adam are you in Christ in Adam all die if you are in Adam what pertains to Adam pertains to you. That's a sinful nature judgment of death and hell in Adam all die if you're in Christ, what pertains to Christ pertains to you, even so in Christ shall all be made alive since by man came death, by man also came the resurrection from the dead. There had to be a man do it under what the first man, but this first Hebrews to verse 14 forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, which only talk about us the children of God as much then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood. He also himself when he says he also himself is talking about Jesus.

He also himself took part of the same of the same, one same flesh and blood back through he might destroy him that had the power, the authority of death, that is not that you see.

It was lost by man he had become flesh and blood Adam sin deserves judgment the way to the famous Dan.

Jesus had to take flesh and blood of body so he could die and bind death. Please send penalty be raised from the dead have one Adam had legally lost. God will righteously regain by God becoming a man. This course down Galatians full verses three through five.

Even so, we when we were children were in bondage. Okay, before we save with Quicken bondage where slaves of Satan to see a son of a slave is a slave understand that a daughter of a slave is a slave. Adam was sold into slavery. He gave that dominion that ruled the Satan. It was delivered to him and out all Adam's progeny are slaves. We are under dominion you say well I'm not a slave of Satan. Oh yes you are you not say you say well I'm free to do whatever I want. That's true but you're not free to do as you all your Satan slave you're in bondage here in bondage to lust and pride and arrogance and disobedience.

Even so, when we were children, we were in bondage under the elements of this world.

Thank God for that. But when the fullness of time was come, God sent forth his son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that is to redeem the slaves by the slaves back.

These are in bondage, God sent forth his son, made of a woman this very carefully. He had to be a man but had he been a son of Adam, he would have the sinful nature of Adam, a son of the slave is a slave and a slave can redeem.

No other slate but on the other hand, he had to be a man. It was lost by man legally lost. It must be righteously regain that my friend is the reason for the virgin birth, but that's the reason for the virgin baby and Mary as well was a man but he was not a son, Adam, he was not the son of the sleigh but was made of a woman as much man as if he were not got it all as much God as if it were not man at all. He was very God of very God and very man as very man, but he did not defeat Satan as a God either.
