Are you compromising with the enemy. Listen to Adrian Rogers as congregation are compromising with family and you are losing and you're losing your family you're losing your children losing your testimony is your reward license.
A roaring lion on angel of light and Jesus Christ welcome to love and worth finding, pastor, teacher and author Adrian Rogers said if you've never met the devil because you and the devil are going in the same direction. These dangerous days we are up against the organized demonized forces of hell itself and the best thing we can do is to learn how to pray as Jesus taught in Matthew chapter 6 lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory for ever man we need to understand he would never teach us to pray that if he did not intend to deliver us. How can we utilize this victorious prayer in our lives today. If you have your Bible turn to Matthew chapter 6 is we hear Adrian Rogers give part two of victorious prayer. We have a generation that walks in darkness because they have been blinded by the dark Prince. His great desire is great desire is to be worshiped as the god of this age and therefore he has developed a system that is an exact counterfeit of Christianity, the devil is not against religion is his chief to using religion to his ear like not only this person think not only of his position but think it was Powell only ignorant scarfs of the power of the devil. It is sheer folly to underestimate his power by series of the Lord Jesus Christ taught us to pray for us, deliver us from the evil one acts chapter 26 verse 18 speaks about power of Satan. Ephesians chapter 6 verse 12 says we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers.
Satan is a supernatural person.
He has supernatural power. He is the supreme dictator in the evil Empire and welded Martin Luther Wright that monumental song, a mighty Fortress is our God, and he has a mass of dark lines about Satan and this is what he says for still our ancient foe don't see the work us woe is craft and power are great and are with cruel hate on earth is not his eat. Now what is his purpose was thoughtful moaned about his purpose.
Satan is a traitor. He's an open revolt against Almighty God. He was lifted up with pride and decided that he wanted to be like the most time.
His original name was Lucifer, that's an ugly named us today but was once a beautiful name it means light bearer, but Isaiah chapter 14 verse 12 says how well from heaven all Lucifer, son of the morning, thou cut down to the ground which this weakens the nations what thou hast said in my heart I will ascend to heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God. I will sit also on the mount of the congregation and the sides of the north.
I really like most time. No sooner had he unsheathed his sword a rebellion against Almighty God, in the judgment of Jehovah fell on him and he fell from heaven like lightning when he fell. Myriads of angels fell within and Lucifer, the son of the morning became Satan, the father of the night. But you still in rebellion against God what is his plan. How does he work his chief method. Listen, his chief method is deception.
His chief method.
Jesus said to the unsaved of his day in John chapter 8 and verse 44 you are of your father the devil, and the lust of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth is motive is murder. His method is the lie he was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own, for he is a liar and the father of it. That's John eight verse 44 and so he ran over kingdom of darkness and the kingdom of deception. I want you to notice the way he is described for example in Ephesians chapter 6 and verse 11 were told to take on the whole armor of God, that we may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Edward Wiles is the Greek word method via it means the methods of the devil is very methodological. He has a scheme he already has a plan. He has a plan. Your adversary has a plan to ruin your life and your family the wiles of the devil. Second Corinthians chapter 2 in verse 11. The Bible speaks of the devices of the devil.
Second Timothy chapter 2 in verse 26 the Bible speaks of the snares of the devil put those words together, wiles devices, snares lie Bible prophesies that in the last days there will be a great resurgence of demonic activity that's one of the reasons that I believe that we living in the last days, and what are some of these are things that are demonic resurgence that we will see in the last days. For example, spiritualism, new ageism first John chapter 4 verse one beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God, because many false prophet are going out into the world. Leviticus chapter 19 verse 31 regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them to be filed by them. I am the Lord your God. Deuteronomy chapter 18 verses nine and following. When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth the thou shalt not learn to do after the nation of those nations. There shall not be found among you, and he that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire they were sacrificing the children to demonic dogs were sacrificing our children today on the altar of abortion or he that use of divination. That's a fortuneteller or an observer of times that's astrology or and enchanter or a witch or a charmer or a consultant with familiar spirits or a wizard, or a necromancer. Listen to this. All that do these things are an abomination to the Lord and because of these abominations the Lord thy God, to drive them out from before the baby is this the end of a nation is the ruin of a nation with these things come, thou shall be perfect with the Lord thy God for these nations which thou shalt possess parking onto observers of time and unto diviners but as for the the Lord thy God have not suffered the to do so.
What's his plan to deceive people.
Number one, through spiritualism, number two through drug abuse.
Why do you think that we have an epidemic of drug abuse because we have an epidemic of demonic activity in the Bible teaches that in the last days there will be a plethora of drug abuse. Revelation chapter 9 and verse 21 neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication's nor the thefts when you say how many sorcerers the word sorcery come from a Greek word Pharma Kia is a word we get pharmacists from another. Nothing wrong with being in pharmacy, but this word means and enchanter with Dragos to see the devil uses drugs to destroy people's minds is demonic activity, so sorcery from time immemorial has been linked with potions that steel weight men's minds, what is sorcery what is drug abuse is instant heaven that leads to everlasting hell.
It is a form of sympathetic salvation.
Another form of demonic activity that we see in the last days is false doctrine.
Apostasy is the true faith.
Today the Bible says in first Timothy chapter 4 and verse one now the Spirit is speaking of the Holy Spirit, speaketh expressly, that means pay attention. The Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, the faith, not a faith, the faith is only one how do they do that, he says, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of demons.
When you look for the devil never fail to look in the pulpit.
Satan uses religion. The Bible speaks of the ministers of Satan. The sacrifices the demons doctrines of demons, the synagogue of Satan. Again, I want to say that religion is one of his chief to another way that Satan has invaded this day, this age and will want to capture the hearts and minds of your children. My children, our grandchildren is through the entertainment and the media system is an angel of light is an angel amusing and he is hideously beautiful. He is brilliantly stupid and it seems that in the media. Today we have reached the very bottom of the garbage.
It is absolutely sickening. The entertainment and media system now.
First of all, therefore, if you would have victory.
You must recognize the sinister person of evil recognized the sinister person of evil he is your adversary, you will recognize that you have an enemy you're not going to prepare yourself for defense.
Jesus taught us to pray deliver us from the evil one.
Second thing, not only should you recognize the sinister person of evil, but you should realize the seductive power of the Lord told his own to Paris deliver us will keep us leaders say well I don't have any problems with the devil don't brag about it.
Jesus did Jesus matting Jesus had to deal with.
And if you've never met the devil is because you and the devil are going in the same direction you are in collusion with her that when you turn around and get right with God you been collision with an you will learn how to pray this prayer.
Oh my God deliver me when you pray this when is this prayer to be prayed in the morning in the morning is also taught us in this passage to pray one and give us this day our daily bread.
Can you imagine person just about to go to sleep at night which is handled is telling us is always been a great day. Give me today my daily bread's all over why pray for you daily bread at the end of the day and in the same prayer where talk to pray for our daily bread work taught God deliver us from the evil one. What is wrong with so many buses that we wake up in the morning everything is going fine would jump out of bed and we going to get dressed and we go in and have our breakfast. We catch up a few pages of the newspaper gulped down some hot coffee get in the car and go to work. Everything is just fine. We think we got it made, and then here comes the enemy then we fail we fall and we come to the end of the day and we settled God for giving my debts as I forgive my debtors. God forgive me, forgive me, forgive me and every time you pray that insincerity and in truth it does forgive you. He does and thank God for that. But why do we keep on asking him to forgive us for the same things you ask God to forgive you and he does when you fall again and say God forgive many does that in your ballgame. You say God forgive many does thousands of times and you know it is true why why why. Thank God he forgive. I'll tell you why we keep asking God forgive us for the same thing because we will are part of this prayer we learn to pray God forgive us, but would not learn to pray Lord leaders. Lest we fall into temptation but deliver us from evil. You see, the best way to deal with your sin is not the end of the day to clean it up.
But at the beginning of the day to prevent this prayer is not the lock that closes the night is the key that opens the morning as we come to God in prayer as we pray to God in the morning for daily bread. We should pray for daily deliverance that God will deliver us. Lucifer is not a demon. He is the devil is one devil. Many demons suppose there's a strategy meeting in well really not even inhale in the netherworld will save the devil not yet inhale and they're saying what can we do to destroy Adrian. What can we do to render that man powerless week. Lucifer says keep him from praying, keep him from praying because no matter what else he does. If he doesn't pray we can beat him every time, but if he pray if he learns how to pray he'll beat us every time keep him from there's not a failure in my life in your life. But what somehow it is a prayer thing. We are not praying Jesus taught us to pray our God lead us not into temptation, but memorize from the evil one would never of taught you to pray that if he did not intend to deliver you, Matthew chapter 26 versus 40 and following its dark Gethsemane Jesus is praying.
The disciples are sleeping. Verse 40 and it cometh unto the disciples, and fight with them asleep safe under Peter want you not watch with me one hour. I listen to this. Matthew 26, one watch and pray that you enter not into temptation, watch and pray, watch and pray for say I don't know why I fail so much what your prayer life like what is your prayer life like our Lord taught us to pray father lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Now listen, you must recognize the sinister person of the you must realize the seductive power of the thirdly and finally, you must rely own sovereign protection from evil look in verse 13 again, look at Matthew six verse 13 and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil, and then notice the Lord for for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory for ever. That is the sovereign protection from evil.
Now while I've spoken about Satan. I do not want to keep your focus on the evil Empire but on the glorious kingdom of God.
Thank God for the note. This prayer in zone.
Levine is the kingdom and the power and the glory. That's records that run through the Bible. One is the dark and somber court of Satan's revolt gathers the crimson court of the blood redemption and the third is the golden cord of the kingdom of our Lord and his Christ, you need to see all three of those in need to learn that the battle is the Lord's day is victory in Jesus.
The Bible tells us in Ephesians chapter 6 and verse 11 to put on the whole armor of God, that we may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil, and the whole armor of God is Jesus Christ.
I got wonderful news for you wonderful news.
You don't have to fear you don't have to fall. You don't have to say you don't have to flee, but you can stand. If you learn how to pray.
You learn how to pray. What is the ground of our victory.
First of all we need to see that the ground of our victory is God himself. His is the king that means absolute absolute authority. Listen to these words, his kingdom cannot say he rules our earth and heaven.
The keys of death and hell are to our Jesus you believe that Satan is powerful, but is not all-powerful Satan rules but he rules a doomed domain Satan sales a sinking ship. God's is the kingdom and God's is the power some versus Genesis 18 verse 14 is anything too hard for the Lord Jeremiah 32 verse 17, Lord God, behold God has made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm and there is nothing too hard for the Jeremiah 33 three call upon me and I will answer the and show the great and mighty things as the power pole. What a mighty God we serve all power resides in him and greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world man went to an atomic power plant to see how they produce power audit found out he found out they don't produce power at all they do is release pallets in those elements friend you don't produce power. All you do is release the power of God that is in you. God is the power you have a dynamic power plant in you.
