Pastor author and Bible teacher Alan Wright was usually saying is of your idea of the gospel is just did you get forgiven of your sin so you don't go to hell and you get to go to heaven. You always in a tiny part of this is a message of a gospel that means you've been delivered from one kingdom to another. What Jesus is saying is the kingdom of God is, and you're seeing manifestations of it as if this is the kingdom of light in the other the kingdom of God.

More on that later in the program but right now let's get started with today's teaching here is Alan writing name and on and I said honey I said I said that I can go alone. I need a woman a new woman of faith, you can do it and when she said we don't know or don't know what no one else in this church said I needed to go hear her tell the story is no what they do in the movies the weakest link you you can make this happen.
We had gravel driveway, no carport in that house and stand in their blocking is already her from getting to the car door was the biggest I got everything we ever saw in our yard just stretched out across the driveway between her and she looked out and I would one thing from another, but either all snakes. To me, so I went to a garden shed and I doubt how I came out, things had all along that aloe and I think you and I did know a thing that I was doing all I do with ideas that will have the promise of God. There's a real evil affliction here that I may be young and I'm naming my first year of ministry. But I'm here in the name of Jesus Christ and that woman was demonstrably separate. I have seen now for the 30 years hands that there is no comparison between the power of God and the power of the wicked one those disciples discovered and they came back and they were overjoyed that it's like they had just found a new power tool like this thing is incredible, and Jesus wanted them to see something better is glad that they've seen the power that's available in his name, but he want to invite them to a bigger vision I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. That's what I want to see. I want to not just see that you have this power.
That's one of but what I wanted to see is that the commander of evil has been dethroned. It is something prophesied by Isaiah 1412 how you are fallen from heaven O'Day*son of Dawn. Speaking of Satan you are cut down to the ground.
You laid the nations low.
I'm glad you said you discovered power over the enemy, but I wanted to see something greater than that I want to see your authority. They were excited about the power and Jesus was excited about the authority you have both as a Christian like someone said is like a police officer who has bad that represents the warranty to keep order and there's a gun that the power to enforce it if need be, but we don't want to use the gun. We want to just walk around with the authority that's what you want in your life. That's what God came to do were fascinated by the power they make the superheroes about power Ironman Mandarin Spider-Man got more tools, power than the green goblin that makes for good movies. But what you want in real life is good order that comes from right, authority, that's what you want and so parenting we don't have parents. We got power to control, punish discipline by whatever you got all the power that's not household you want to be having to use the power all the time. You just want authority you always wanted to be like you know I don't have to anymore and just look nothing more once it just okay there we go. The badge came out you won't good order you want, well ordered life and live and it's why I hardly ever talk about the devil to ever talk about any of this. Why is it wouldn't come to church expect there would have to go around and pass out a bunch of demons that do all this power to now we come and we just walk in the authority the tires are every Sunday morning first thing we do it 9 AM is a prayer team gathers and begins rejoicing in the Lord and saying God, we thank you this is your property. This is your time.
This is your people.
This is your place. It all belongs to you and none of it belongs to the enemy and therefore we take our rightful position of authority in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and we plead the finished work of Christ in his blood figuratively is covering this entire property and all the people who come here so there to be no enemy interference. We want allow for a moment and stepfather. We are here to exalt you and to lift you up and we just thank you father for this beautiful day and start to come to go. Although we might be patients and we better be ready to get the power going walk and that confidence and that's what Jesus was saying, I want you to walk in the confidence he say what I really want to be excited about is that your names are written in heaven talking about the book of life that Daniel prophesied in Daniel 12. At that time shall rise Michael, the great prince was charging your people there to be a time of trouble, such as never been since there was a nation till that time, but at that time your people shall be delivered. Everyone whose name shall be found written in the book.
The book everybody knew of the book heavenly book. The book of life. Paul spoke about it offhandedly in Philippians 4 yes I ask you true companion help these women and the rest of fellow workers whose names are written in the book of life. There it is in Revelation 35 the one who conquers be clothed in white garments, and I will never blot his name out of the book of life know what Jesus is saying is okay, this is great you're excited you seen that the power the Holy Spirit can move through you. When I delegated authority to you.
But here's what I wanted to know, and here's what you're going to come to be aware is that you have been written into the book of life as a child of God, and if a child of God, then an heir of God and a co-heir with me, which means that that which has been entrusted to me is entrusted to you that what should I just bless me has blessed you. You have a a co-airship with me. It is about who you are, not just what you can and no demon and no power of hell and no calamity can ever pluck you from my hand because your names are in gallantly written in the book of life. As soon as you confess Christ as your Savior and Lord.
It is figuratively is your name is etched into an eternal book and it can take. I want to live like that Jesus is being so sure victory.
I can give you 100 reasons. Today why I think Jay's Jesus is wanting them to see this and explain it but I will give you three of how you can be so sure victory in Jesus Christ, and the first is this God is God. He is the Creator of the ends of the earth and the devil and all his minions are just creatures that Alan Wright will have more teaching moment from today's important series want to give someone a present this Christmas that they'll never forget.

And God said, let there be light and there was light.
There is no one else who can create something out of nothing except the create and he's the creator of the ends of the earth and there is no one like him. He has made everything that exists.
Think about it some years ago and preaching Genesis. I just started studying how big the cosmos is thinking about the whirlpool galaxy that is perpendicular to us. 31 million light years away from where were sitting 31 million light you wrap your mind around that light travels hundred 86,000 miles a second light years. How far light travels in a year's travels 5.88 trillion miles a year and so the whirlpool galaxy is 31 million×5.88 trillion miles just to get there and if you got there, you'd see some of the biggest stars are sign is not a very big star may be 10,000°F on its surface.
93 million miles away and it might be a million times the size it earth but consider something like canis majoris canis majoris the big dog star. Well, if you could if you could imagine it if you were to think of the earth as a golf ball.
Canis majoris would be like Mount Everest.
Seven quadrillion earths could fit inside that God made hundreds of billions of galaxies filled with hundreds of billions of such stars. And I'm here to tell you the devil tempted God made DNA in the human cell. Human genome because he is all-knowing he is intelligence personified the Devils a limited creature who hates God hates the people of God but is just a creature and no creature can tell the creator what to do. Is your first assurance great big God and little bitty devil is a second assurance, Jesus is saying, the kingdom of God has arrived. You are a citizen of it and nothing can change that is saying this in verse 11 of Luke 10, even though the steer town that clings your feet will wipe it off against you. Nevertheless, know this, the kingdom of God is come near St. if you go into a town and nobody there received your message and you don't see any fruit where you can wipe the dust off your feet. But just don't ever forget this. No matter what you see with your eyes the kingdom of God is come at the hand. This is a kingdom that is been proven by what you're saying in Luke 11 verse 20.
Jesus said if it is by the finger of God that I cast out demons in the kingdom of God is come upon you.
Colossians Paul said verse chapter 1 verse 11 being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the father is qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints of light is qualified to 11. He has delivered us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved son in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins is Jesus saying is if your idea of the gospel is just did you get forgiven of your sin so you don't go to hell and you get to go to heaven. You've only seen a tiny part of this is a message of the gospel. That means that you have been delivered from one kingdom to another. What Jesus is saying is the kingdom of God has come in your seeing manifestations on what's happened is that this is the kingdom of light in the other the kingdom of God and there is no comparison between light and dark eyes look at it this way you can go into the darkest room and like the smallest little candle and it will dispel darkness. That pain is little bit light will dispel darkness, but there is no such thing is going into a bright room and shining a beam of darkness to make it darker. It doesn't happen because darkness is not an energy. It is the absence of light. Satan is described as the father of lies and all of hell is built upon blocking light and so it is that the kingdom of light has come in the person of Jesus Christ and has dislodged and is utterly displacing the kingdom of darkness.
And one day Jesus will come back and consummate all of this is no comparison new kingdom has come, and you are a citizen of the new kingdom still brush up against those in the kingdom of darkness. And so the skirmishes here's the final thing I wanted to say they assure you this victory. This year the accuser has lost his voice and so he has no legal standing against you.
This is really what Paul is talking about in Romans five, six, seven and eight to come to this great crescendo in Romans eight of God is for us who can be against you shall bring any charge against God's elect Seneca if this report along who could bring a charge against the Christian and what he says essentially is God who justifies. So who could continue essentially saying Christ Jesus is the one who died more than that, who is razors in the right hand of God is interceding for the same the only one who could condemn you who have the right to sit in that seat of judgment continue only one who could Jesus died for you because he loves you so much and instead of condemning you.
He is eternally interceding for you. He is mediating for you. He is wanting the best for you.
The only one who had the right to condemn you and accuse you left and wants the very best. So when you become a Christian. What happens is that you get assured that nothing can ever separate you from the love of God. That's why Paul says in verse 37 all the things were more than conquerors from sure that neither death nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, things to come. The power to heighten a depth or anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God in Jesus Christ is what is saying is the Devils lost his voice.
The accuser has no accusation left because beloved. Here's what it means to be a Christian. It means that Jesus is so fully paid your debt that there is no debt left so no one can come and claim a debt if the debt doesn't exist in me that he has so thoroughly paid. Take the punishment for your sins and for mine that there is no punishment that remains.
It would be unjust if a judge were to punish two people for the same crime in this punishment of Jesus, take a thorough and complete, blotted out all of our sand so that God and Jesus Christ both just and justifier.
When you accept Christ, God has reckoned you as righteous and it is just as if you had never sand, and therefore we don't find a battle against the voice of condemnation by trying to defend ourselves. We fight the battle by saying you have no standing to bring an accusation against me. I've already been declared not guilty. Righteous in that case is over and also mentioning after that lawsuit when we spent all that money and were trying to pull himself together and before we had had all this money restored by different means. I was an executive team meeting one day and I was, whining a little bit. As a boy would've been good if we had had this been all that money got nothing to show for Mickey Executive Director and requisite awesome truth that we did get some for his and remember this, the judge has consigned is called a consent order is file downtown in a consent order maintenance that what is hereby been declared as a settled matter and no one coming up and never ever again.
No one can ever sue you over the no one ever could bring up these issues again and the judge has a right to stop anybody that even tries to even the right, but some IN jail, they violate that consent order. Mickey said we did get something for $600,000 we got for ever permanent free clear title to this property that cannot be disputed. We won't even have to fight that battle ever again. I'm saying to be a Christian.
Main Jesus has accomplished something so full and so complete for you that yes you may have skirmishes but you are not trying to win a war. This war is already been one some years ago, the Humphrey Bogart movie in a strange's concluding type scene where the climaxes move your criminal has taken a family hostage and is holding the younger son of the family by holding a gun. Next, that little boys head is is The whole family captive while he is waiting on demand and the scene continues for a long time and people began getting tired and you start going who will fall asleep first and one by one children wife. They fall asleep and then the father falls asleep seeing that everyone has finally fallen asleep. The criminal allows himself to just doze off. But as soon as the criminal goes off.
The father opens his eyes.
He'd only been pretending they did an unusual thing that added drama to the scene.
He walked over and slowly remove the gun out of the criminals hands and instead of just taking it shooting, he took every one of the bullets out and put the gun back into that criminals hand went back over to his place and in a few moments he startled everyone by saying son come to your father. The little boy had no idea what to do because the criminals gun is right in his head but his father said again. Trust me, run to your day. My little boy must've been so confused because the one hand, he has no real life here in the criminals hand.
What kind of life is that is bondage, but at least he was breathing, but it seems like certain death, Toronto's father, but 1/3 time. The father said come to me and held out his arms in a moment. Must've been filled with 10,000 motions.
That little boy flung himself out of the criminals armed and ran across to his father's embrace. While the gun went quick click click.
Paul said that Jesus has disarmed the principalities, it means that he has remove the bullets from the enemies gun. It means that your safe means. Therefore, though you will have trouble in this world you can live it as if you tape the whole game. Jesus wanted to see this Satan has fallen like lightning from heaven. That means Jesus is in charge and where in Macedon Allen right. That's good news. It's our good news message today seeing the victory that Jesus from the series you'll see past relatives back with us in the studio sharing a parting good news thought for the day here in just a moment to stick with this one I give someone a present this Christmas that they'll never forget.

Well, I think in a real sense that's what it means to have Jesus's eyes about the victory Jesus that I saw Satan fall lightning well Jesus has seen the ultimate victory and he knows what he's accomplished and so we need Jesus's eyes because in this world to face trouble and we face temptation and we're going to be a spiritual battle and sometimes have direct spiritual oppression, and against us need to learn how to walk the fullness of our authority and walk in the confidence that we're wearing the armor of God so all of this we know is there available but how do you walk in that and I suggest this by getting Jesus's eyes. Have you seen the spiritual battle. Jesus showed today's good news message is a listener supported production. Alan Wake ministries
