Regression have the power of the Holy Spirit. Listen closely to the real Rogers when the Holy Spirit came the day of Pentecost God's Holy Spirit to the church and we all need to pray, Holy Spirit, Holy Spirit has come when you quit asking God to do what is already gone to be like asking Jesus to die policy and the Holy Spirit has come, and God has poured out incredible dynamic power, but let me ask you question is every Christian spirit who is every Christian of Holy Spirit. No because they have not read that which is already absolute. You see it is that but it must be more welcome to love with finding dynamic insights and lessons of real Rogers when a believer is born again. That believer was born when Esther Rogers said we don't pray for victory. We have the victory. We stand in victory but were still in a spiritual battle in a fight to the finish right.

We must learn how to come against the enemy and use our kingdom authority in the warfare of prayer. If you have your Bible turn to Luke chapter 10 will begin in verse 17 as Adrian Rogers delivers the powerful conclusion of the warfare of prayer. Now let's see what God says in chapter 10 and verse 17.

I let me preface this by saying that Jesus commissions somebody to go out and preach. We gave them a far and when they came by with Greg Choi. Here's what they said and the 70 returned again with joy, saying even the devil's are subject on to office through by name did you get us into the 70 returned with joy saying will even that literally means the demons are subject to loss by name and he said under their IPL 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 power is used twice in the King James Scriptures, but in the Greek the two different words for power.

The first word means authority and may be translated. Behold, I give you a overall 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 what 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-17 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. I told you last week how Adam and Eve were created, placed in the garden of Eden and give an amended 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, the Lord Jesus 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 legally 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 killed 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 by is the second thing this authority that has been sovereignly established.

This same authority must be strongly enforced.

I say no way to mandate rim 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 fight is deception. He always tries 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 letter 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.

Sin debt will do you no good unless you believe only made a believable name is not condemn, but even believe is not is condemned already, because he is not believed 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 painful God. So was absolute, but it must be appropriated, let's think about spiritual power when the Holy Spirit came in 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 all 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 has always been no why because they have not appropriated that which is already absolute. You see it is there 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 car 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 it takes for text 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 unto him the book of the prophet Isaiah's and when he opened 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 pool is not talking only about those who financially pool that includes that buddies talking here spiritual. You may be a multimillionaire today, but without Jesus you bankrupt.

You may go home today and a fine automobile, but without Jesus you a pumper and you need the Lord so put down the work he came bankrupt, but now notice. Also, he is anointed to preach the gospel to the poor, and he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, all listen.

Jesus came to those who feel sorrow, your neighbor, those people that you work with.

They are broken hearted. The Bible says man that is born of woman is a few days and full of trouble and without Jesus is only going to get worse. What I have to look forward to.

One by one the levels will be taken from them one by one they go down into the grave, day by day, their body will get weaker and sicker.

And all they have to look forward to is a hole in the ground and is no rhyme or reason assessed anything. Jesus came to those people, the bankrupt, the brokenhearted, and then look to preach deliverance to the captives, the bow, these are people who have been taken captive by Satan. Satan has moved in and made this world a vast concentration camp and their Satan's captives. They may not even realize it but they are bound by Satan and the Bible says the whole world live in the bosom of the wicked one. Just like a child asleep in his mother's arms. This world is listening to the lullaby of hell has Damon saying that anthem and we wonder why don't they wake up babe in chloroform by the spirit of this age and they been taken captive and the recovering of the site to the blind, put down the word blind. These are people who cannot see this, I can print this full force is the God of this world hath blinded the minds of them that believe not, is not the July .20 site you can see spiritual thing. Never argue with a man for not understanding the Bible.

Nobody is ever argued into the kingdom of heaven when he says I just don't see it is not lying. He doesn't see Jesus except a man be born again he cannot see listen they are black Satan escrow he takes joy in your suffering and annual pain.

Why does he do that.

Why is Satan the bruiser. Satan knows that he cannot get it God. Satan's war is with God but Satan knows if he can hurt someone that God loves. He's hurt God anyway so therefore you have become a pawn in this war. I just look at this litany of problems with those who are bankrupt those who brokenhearted those who are bound.

Those are blind those who grew. These are the ones were in Satan's dark kingdom.

Now what is our responsibility. Why did Jesus come this verse says that the spirit of the Lord is upon him because God sent him to do this now. What did Jesus say to us, listen to me. Jesus said, as my father has sent me, even so send I you. These who are bankrupt. These were brokenhearted days were bound. These poor blind. These were bruises God has sent us to the rescue is our job authority that has been given to us to set the captives free. That's the reason we have this great commission. It deals with authority as my father has sent me, even so send I you. Warfare is not with flesh and blood. We need to understand that all warfare is was Satan. You understand that Ephesians chapter 6 verse 12 says for we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, against spiritual wickedness in high places. When Simon Peter rebuked the Lord Jesus and said to the Lord Jesus concerning the cross. No more be far from you. You will not die on the cross. Jesus Christ said to Simon Peter get the behind me Satan, for thou art an offense under me now. Was Jesus calling Simon Peter, Satan, of course not.

Jesus knew better than that. But Jesus looked beyond the Simon Peter and Saul where the battle was the owner. The devil loves to do. The devil loves to get us fighting with flesh and blood analysis are problem is not in Hollywood nor in the White House where war was Satan fair is not some politician I warfare is was Satan himself.

We are not wrestling with flesh and blood and the reason that we are losing the fight is were not showing up for. And Jesus said, behold, I give you authority over all the power the enemy must be strongly enforced. It is sovereignly established, but it must be strongly enforced.

You have to take the power of attorney and moving.

There was a woman in Missouri. I believe I read about. She had allowed a man who was not her husband to come into her apartment and lived there. She thought it be a good arrangement but after a while she realizes she made a tragic mistake and she told that man. You don't have to leave.

He said I'm not leaving. She said please ladies and ongoing she said I don't want your animal peace and I'm not going to go you invite me here on Wednesday.

She didn't know what to do.

She went to court and got an injunction against and brought it there and said you see this, you've got to go. I got authority now and you got to go any mood. Satan is@one you can say Satan want to leave me alone. Please leave me alone don't bother me anymore.

What you need to do. My friend is take the authority of heaven and say Satan in the name of Jesus I resist you. I rebuke you.

You have no right or your trespassing on my father's property and in the name of Jesus we go visit will be talking to the devil and that like praying to the devil in the printer.

When is a scam I'm telling you my friend, Jesus said, I give you up over all our family has been sovereignly established, it must be strongly enforced against the third and final flying.

This authority that our Lord has given us to set the captives free must be strategically exercised pastor what he mean that must be strategically exercised number one.

The person who does. It must be right, don't you Sally forth against Satan.

If there's any unconfessed sin in your life or spirit of rebellion you will never be over until you learn to be under only when you are under authority. Can you live with authority. Get yourself a lot of trouble if you five try to fight spiritual battles with a dirty wicked heart are rebellious spirit must be right person number two. This is very important. There must be the right position. You must understand where you are as a Christian and you speak from that position because what is our position.

Ephesians 2 verse six says that God has raised us up together and made us to sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus is raised us up together made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus, and the heavenly's and forms listen when Jesus died, we died with him. His death had on a moment when Jesus arose, we rose with him.

When Jesus ascended with Cindy with him when Jesus is seated at the right hand of the father we are in him. He is in us. We are sitting together with Jesus in the heavenly's I thought it was here in Bellevue Baptist Church physical you are, but spiritually are seated with Christ. Now listen, you know, our problem many times were praying in the wrong direction. We are praying from earth to heaven. We need to start praying from heaven to earth. Are you listen I mean from our position in the Lord Jesus Christ from having seen Jesus, and now we need to turn our first downward because these things are beneath our feet and Jesus and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven shall be loosed in heaven.

That doesn't mean that God seconds the motion, it means in the Greek language whatever you by my heart shall have already been bound in heaven, and what if you loose on earth shall already be loosed in heaven is gone and now we need to exercise kingdom of the right person the right position and the right, power, where's the power, the power is in The Bible speaks of Satan. Revelation chapter 12 says concerning Satan and the saints overcame him by the blood of Christ by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death. Where's the power the powers in Calvary powers and the blood they overcame him by the blood of the land you with the authority that has been given to you can take the blood of Jesus Christ and overcome Satan every time the word of their testimony.

What is that me. What is the word of your testimony, the word of your testimony is the word of God actualized in your life that's awarded your testimony what God is done for you. You have a testimony. You believe the Bible by the word of your testimony give the devil you testimony that I belong to Jesus Christ.

My certificate of debt is paid in full. Your back is broken. God has given me authority over you, and I don't have to take it that's my testimony. Satan don't you let the devil intimidate you anymore.

They loved not their lives unto the death. What that person literally means is serve Jesus if I die for doing doesn't mean I keep loving impolite diet means I'll serve him if I get killed for doing it. That's what me hope my friend, Jesus said I gave you all over all the power of the enemy. If you've never given your heart to Jesus you like to be saved. I'm telling you right now today that God will save you by his grace and for his glory and not only will he save you, but he will empower you and keep you saved day by day in the same Jesus that has saved me is the one who will save you. I want you to pray this prayer if you want to be saved. You say will pastor of a person can be saved and know what I want to know or I can pray this prayer dear God's righteous document. I know that you love me and I know that you want to save me Jesus you died to save me and you promise to save me if I would trust you. I do trust you. I believe you're the son of God.
