When God gave Adam dominion over the earth listen to Adrian Rogers, God gave the first man to see the lost look around you don't see the songs about an rating and having opinion over the surface, God gave spiritual dominion. Something has gone all welcome to drink profound truth. Simply stated, the messages of Adrian Rogers. We are in the spiritual battle against the organized, mobilized and demonized powers of we must understand what kingdom authority is in order to utilize now. In part one of today's message. We learned that God made us to have dominion but that kingdom authority was legally lost by Adam, yet it was righteously regained by Jesus.

If you have your Bible turn to Ephesians chapter 1 will begin in verse 15 part two of kingdom authority. Here's Adrian Rogers about. Here's the first thing I want to learn that authority was gloriously given at gloriously given our graciously given Adam.

God gave the first man is waiting 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 known all is the second thing I want you in the span. Not only was it graciously and gloriously given but it was legally lost not just lost, legally lost Adam dominion that God had given to him and Adam gave that dominion to Satan. Obviously Satan deceived. Obviously Satan a con artist to see Adam, but nonetheless Adam, faithless, unbelieving disobedient Adam yielded to Satan and became Satan's Lane 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 or his slave. You are the King James gives it servant, but the Greek word is sleigh became. He yielded 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 whomsoever I will give Jesus been contradicted. 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 Satan says it has been given to me and man is spiritually dead and spiritually dethroning and 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 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 disobedience. That's the spirit of now the Bible calls came in second Corinthians 4 verse four the 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 practice in this world because delivered it over to Satan. It was gloriously given. It was legally lost. Now we go to tighten the focus a little bit. Now you can understand why Jesus Christ came.

It was legally lost. It must be righteously regained. Now where was it 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 is 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. His own holiness, his own justice and by a man. He's going to destroy the power Satan let me do some verses that back this God's plan must center in a man first released chapter 15 verses 21 and 22 four cents by man came by man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in rice, 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 and 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 that had to be a man doing under what the first man, but this first down. Hebrews 2 verse 14 forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, which only talk about us the children of God, forasmuch 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 in the same of the same one the 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 Sandler's urban judgment. The wages of sin is there. Jesus had to take flesh and blood of the body so he could die and by death. Please send penalty be raised from the dead have one Adam had legally lost. God will righteously regain by God becoming a man. But this first down. Galatians full verses three through five. Even so, we when we were children were in bondage.

Okay before were saved with bondage where slaves of Satan.

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 as 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 mission. That's the reason for the virgin baby and there is no was a man but he was not a son, Adam, he was not the son of a 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 he defeated Satan as a perfect man, he paid the debt all the crawl back through. He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil night it would've been a farce in a hollow victory and God simply snatch the dominion from Satan and turned it back over the sinful man, God's plan is far richer and fuller and greater than that. And so when Jesus Christ came to this or born of a virgin, totally, absolutely sinless, Satan knew that had a problem on his hands battle was beginning this battle for dominion and authority was being waged. Satan remembered what he had done to the first Adam and how he attempted and tricked and deceived Adam into sending and how the dominion was given over to him. So Satan says not got to get this one to send hi got to get him to say because if I can get him to see the whole thing back to me or I will retain what I already have, so I must get him to say that's what Luke four is all about Jesus as he began his public ministry is baptized in the Holy Spirit like a dog.

The sins upon him. In Luke chapter 4 says he was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil for 40 days he's tempted Satan is trying to get the son of man, the son of God. To say but Jesus didn't have any which the devil could scratch. He said the Son of Man cometh, he finds nothing in me was Jesus tempted to show that he could send know he was tempted to show that he could not sin.

He was the holy, righteous son of God. That's what that passage that I alluded to. A while back from Luke four comes from where he takes Jesus update exceeding high mountain revealing now with our show him all the glory to power the authority that is in the rulers of this world and he says to Jesus for all this. I'll give it to you.

It's been delivered to me and therefore is mine to give, to whomever I want to give it now give it to you if you just worship me.

Can you imagine the tax same saying that some worship me.

Satan is always wanted to be washed be like the most high. What did Jesus do Jesus defeated Satan, but how he did not defeat Satan as God though he was perfect God he defeated Satan as a man should defeat Satan as a man, and Jesus and that will this temptation did not pull rank on me our own knew he used the two weapons that were unavailable to Adam in the Garden of Eden and the two weapons that are available to us in this sanctuary today. The spirit of God and the word of God. The Bible says that God anointed Jesus with the Holy Spirit. What about doing just before he was led of the Spirit into the wilderness Holy Spirit of God was upon him. When Satan came to attempt to Jesus unsheathed the word of God and said Satan is written in rhyming through the soul, thou shalt worship the Lord thy God in him will I shall now serve and by the Holy Spirit and the holy Scriptures.

The two weapons the word of God and the spirit of God, the same weapons that were available to God because Adam had the word of God. Those same weapon, where the first Adam for the second one in the wilderness.

Some Adam Redpath. Imagine Jesus saying something like this to Satan. Satan I want you to know that it is God which I I H you, but I'm not going to obliterate you as God I'm going to destroy you as man as a man, I'm coming against you as a man, a man with the spirit and armed with the word that's the way I'm going to win the battle. That's the way one about the hounds of hell made after Jesus trying to get into sin. Satan's surely thinking that he would not go to the cross. Surely he would not pay the price that Adam send deserve. Surely he would not pay the ransom. Surely he would not redeem the fallen sons of man shall not suffer so he would not become the object of her father's wrath, but bear in the garden of Gethsemane. The battle of the ages ranged and hinges on what were nevertheless not my will lead. It was Satan who said to God, not my will but mine, but the second Jesus said, not my will but thine be done as a man himself and became obedient unto death, even the bathroom he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is when Jesus went to Austin suffered, and bled and died. He said it is finished below. That means remember reading about the Dead Sea Scrolls over there in this real down by the Dead Sea have seen those caves were those scrolls were found will shepherd boy threw a stone into a cave, the Trotta fetch out a go and he heard a click when I like even found these jobs and in these jobs all kinds of documents the Dead Sea Scrolls, but also found some bills and then some legal bills and across those legal bills were written the same word that Jesus said from across paid in full finished paid in full. You see, the price has been paid on the redemption has been God and Jesus. The second man came to do what Adam the first mandated it was graciously given for it was really lost righteously.

That's the reason that God became a man.

That's the reason for the incarnation.

That's the reason that the anti-walked in sandals shoes on the bus to shut down early.

That's what it's all about now risen and ascended Lord will has ascended the high hills of glory. Where is he now. Well, here's what Paul saying I want to understand. Look in verse 19 we still Ephesians 1. What is the exceeding greatness of his power to us were to believe not only by those who do believe, according to the working of his mighty power, which he wrought in Christ when he raised him Jesus from the dead and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality remember we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, but he is now Jesus, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that his name not only this world but also that which is to come and have put all things under his feet and gave him to be the head over all things to the church. Remember, Adam was to have all things under his feet. Remember Psalm 846. Now all things under the feet of the second Adam and he is the head over all things to the church a look at that breaker friend, don't think of the church is an organization with Jesus as the president of the church as an organism with Jesus as the head you see the difference you see the difference. Listen we are in Christ and he is in office over the church, which is his body, the fullness of him calling all the authority, therefore, that belongs to him belongs to us what you will in chapter 2 verse six and hath raised us up together and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Where is Jesus at the right hand of the Majesty on high. All things beneath his feet. Where are you is a will I'm sitting right here physically knows what it says here about you. In verse 22 and if put all things under his feet and gave him to be the head over all things to the church look in chapter 2 verse five and even when we were dead in sins that quickened us together with Christ. That is were raised.

We died with Jesus. We were raised with Christ by grace are you safe and have raised us up together and made us sit together in heaven the places in Christ Jesus LSU?

Are you sitting in heavenly places. The answer is yes yes yes physically but in Christ we have been raised when he died when he died his name on it when he was raised from the grave. We were raised from the great when he ascended, we ascended when he seated at the right hand of God. So are we in Christ when the devil hope you don't understand this as a reason Paul said I bet your eyes will be open that you will be enlightened, that you will understand this. That's my praying that you understand the exceeding greatness of his power, don't you think it's time that the people of God began to understand and exercise a foreign what a powerful conclusion to this convicting message from Adrian Rogers today to be as you listen there something that is surfaced in your life you have a prayer request that you'd like to share with us in love with finding it's one of our great honors to come alongside you, and pray with you and for you, so go to our website and then scroll down to find our prayer wall.
