Are you living the life for your children. Listen to Adrian Rogers question why is getting the kids of the best families in our church. How does that happen.

Why think it's a complicated thing and we can put everybody in one category, probably one reason that a lot of it happens as Christo's came in. They have never learned how to live in victory for children and their children somehow are sincere when they feel like they just simply missed. Welcome to featuring the profound truth of the gospel of the practical lessons of Adrian Rogers in this spiritual battle against the world.

The devil in the flesh. We can oftentimes be our own biggest in Exodus chapter 17, God called the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt and led them through the wilderness toward Canaan reading the story as believers today. We see Egypt represents the world Pharaoh the devil and Canaan, the victorious life. How can we step out of the wilderness and into a life of victory. If you have your Bible turned Exodus 17. Now, as Adrian Rogers shares four principles of victory.

I will tell you something about a church member that had difficulty with this church member for a number of years really is. Give me a lot of trouble and he has disappointed me many many times and I have had to just expend a lot of with this church member really find that we are one of congregation.

This member has given me much much sorrow and heartache at times made out to his name. I think Adrian Rogers know my biggest enemy is my own self and you found that through we have an enemy inside before called self.

Sometimes the Bible calls that the old man. Sometimes the Bible calls that the flash but were all in a matter you see we have three enemies world, the flesh and the devil were talking about that center enemy the flashing when I'm talking about the flesh. I'm not talking about your material body The skin and bones. Your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit of God is crafted of God. It is to be wholly dedicated to him when I'm talking about the flesh I'm talking about that lower part of our nature that we inherited from our parents who got it from Adam. It is a disposition. I guess the things of God.

The Bible tells us in Galatians chapter 5 in verse 17, the flesh, lust against the spirit of the spirit against the flesh, and these two are contrary one to the other so that you cannot do the things that she would now the 17th chapter of Exodus. Well, a secret understanding the Bible. Now, while the Old Testament is history. It is more than history. It is devotional literature about the Old Testament about the history of the Old Testament and I'm talking particularly about the coming of the Jewish nation out of Egypt through the wilderness and into Canaan. The Bible tells us in first Corinthians chapter 10 that all these things happen to them first greatest in verse 11. These things happen to them.

For example, stops to learn a lesson today about the life of conquest. Remember that at one time. The Jewish people were in Egypt and they were slaves in Egypt represents world, therefore, that we been called out of the God called them out of Egypt, Pharaoh was the king of Egypt, Pharaoh represents the data, then they were headed toward Canaan land of oil and wine, and corn in figs and pomegranates, milk and honey rivers and trees and valleys and hills brass and iron. They were called indicating what this Canaan represent not heaven someday Canaan in the Bible. Don't miss this Canaan represents victory. Canaan represents the spirit filled life, not the Sweet by and by, but in the nasty know now we can have victory day by day.

So as Christo's. We have come out of Egypt. We are coming through wilderness but we headed toward Canaan and we ought to already be there. So Canaan represents the spiritual life.

Egypt the world Pharaoh that Canaan, the victorious life, but we gonna meet somebody now in just a moment represents the flesh that member. I've been having such difficulty with and I know that if you save you been having the same difficulty. Now with that in mind begin in verse eight. Then came Amalek. Amalek represents the flesh.

Then came Amalek and with Israel and Rapidan and Moses said to Joshua Jesus out man and go out and fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand so Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek and Moses and Aaron and her went to the top of the hill and it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand. This will prevail and let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.

I can imagine Dan Rather being there. Dan Rather saying there is a battle our man on the field is reporting something, let me get it here. My all yes yes he says there's an old man some old man that has a rod in his hand and as the old man holds up his hand. Something is happening down in the Valley. Ladies and gentlemen, it seems that when the old man holds up his hands. But Josh was Army is victorious, but when the old man's hands go down the armies of Amalek are victorious is a strange thing that we report today. All right now notice verse 12 but Moses hands were heading to the stone and put it under him and he sat thereon and Aaron and her estate, his hands, that is, held up his hand to one side and the other on the other side and his hands was, until the going down of the sun and Joshua. This comforted Amalek as just a fancy way of saying he Joshua this comforted Amalek and his people with the age of the soul not want to talk to you about four principles of victory and I want to talk to you about some Canaan conquest you might right now say will I come out of Egypt, but I should have known it again. I have been adult in the well let me tell you how you can change your life. Sincerely, now sincerely from the monotonous to the momentous from failure to victory and before you get to heaven you can bring heaven to earth. I am talking to you about salute proof that the Bible teaches, and that I have experienced in my life before thing number one you need to receive a gracious provision and that provision is salvation. Now go back if you will, to the first verse of this chapter and all the congregation of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of sin after they journeys according to the commandment of the Lord and that is a set of dance and Rapidan and there was no water for the people drink. Wherefore the people did side with Moses. They scolded him and said it was water that we may drink. And Moses said to them, watch ID with me.

Wherefore, the template will and the people are still there water and the people murmured against Moses, and said that wherefore is this that thou has brought us out of Egypt, to kill us children mark out with first bread I've been there.

To this place.

You talk about barren, desolate place.

It is indeed a barren and desolate in a dry place and Moses cried of the Lord saying what you like doing to this people they be almost ready to stone me. The Lord said to Moses, go long before the people and take with the of the elders of Israel, and I wear without some notice. The river taken Linehan and go. Moses had arrived. It was a miraculous rod will say more about it later on.

Behold, I will stand before the up on the rock in horrible and thou shalt smite the rock and there shall come water out of it that the people made great and Moses did so in the sight of God. I want to get the picture that out in the barren landscape kind of first Moses and God. God says you take this for you. Take a rod and you go to this rock and you with that rod use might that and when you do will come from the rock. We dare try to get water from a rock water will come from that rock. What is all this about. I'm not being fanciful when I tell you this is a glorious illustration would literally happen is a glorious illustration of our salvation put in your mark in first Corinthians 10 and verse four, I remember, I told in first Corinthians 10 verse 11 Bible says all these things happen.

For examples, remember all these things happen for examples first grade this timbers for the Bible says and they did all drink the same spiritual drink, for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them and that rock was Christ that rock pictures the Lord Jesus Christ. The rock of ages Smith in France. Isaiah 53 verse four says that we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, you see Jesus the rock of ages was smitten for us and because Jesus was smitten for us out of his ribbon side came for and that water represents the Holy Spirit which is the water of life and you and I have because the rock was smitten so long ago when Jesus hung up getting blown up on that cross our rock for us out of his side has come that refreshment that Holy Spirit that is in me right now in you right now thank God for the blessed precious Holy Spirit.

I would ask a question, my friend. Today you never see Jesus are you thirsty, you know that there's something missing in your life is not something to someone what to thirsting for is Jesus I can tell you that you will never be satisfied.

You'll never feel contentment until you know the Lord Jesus Christ and evangelist friend of mine was on an airplane.

One time my and you like it just it, it just aggravates me when the stewardesses come along and try to sell us booze on those airplanes, but today that's part of the job and this doubt came to my friend Mike and said sir would you like a drink. He said no ma'am. He said I had a drink about 20 years ago. The satisfied me completely cheesecake must've been some kind of drink. He said it was. She said tell me about it. He said you serve everybody else, and I'll tell you about she serve everybody that moves. Then came the buckle itself and alongside this brother Mike and said, tell me about it, and frankly, David told her about that drink that rock of ages out of his side is come forth bad water of life in Jesus that if you thirsty if you thirsty, come to me and break. I will thirsty today you stick you say God knows I meant that in asking that my car is anything many times as never once been thirsty are you are you are. Thank God for the smitten rock. So the first thing if you want to live a life of victory number one. You must receive a gracious provision which is salvation. Number two, you must realize a grand purpose because being saved is one but God has more much more for you see God's plan for his people is not merely that they come out of Egypt and go into the wilderness of Sinai God's plan for his people was that they go into the land of Canaan. I'm not talking about pie-in-the-sky I'm talking about victory right now, God brought them out, that he might bring them in UNIX is chapter 17. Exodus chapter 13 just go back just a couple chapters and look with me in verse three and Moses said unto the people remember this day in which he came out for me to just underscore that phrase he came out from Egypt_that out of the house of bondage.

For by strength of hand the Lord brought you underscore that from this place special no leavened bread, beaten this day came ye out in the month of a bid and it shall be when the Lord shall bring the end to underscore that. Now bring the end to notice he brought you out. They might bring you in bring you into the land of the Canaanites and the Hittites and the Amorites and the Hittites and highlights in the Jebusites, which he swear underlie fathers to give the watch of a land flowing with milk and honey, that thou shall keep this service in this month, seven days shall not eat unleavened bread and the seventh they should be a feast to the Lord.

Unleavened bread shall be seven days initial no leavened bread be seen with the new facility.

There be an 11 scene with the in all thy quarters.

Thou shall show thy son in that day notice and that they say this is done because of that which the Lord did to me when I came forth out of Egypt. That was all the same God says look I brought you out that I might bring you in my God says when you get into the land.

Notice the land flowing with milk and honey. Then I want you to celebrate.

Then I want to keep the feast of the Passover. I want to keep the feast of unleavened bread.

I want to celebrate and when you celebrate the feast your sons going to come here and this is me and you can take a sunset we are celebrating what God did for us. When God brought us out of Egypt, and God brought us into this plan, I will ask you question why is it that the devil is getting the kids of the best families in our churches today. I'm talking about people who say in the quiet people who take a bill for people who teach Sunday school people who love God. People who are saved. People were tying people who live clean lives. Yet the kids many times the drugs will come to church running with the wrong crowd maybe sleeping around. How does that happen. Why think it's a complicated thing and we can put everybody in one category about the one reason a lot of it happens. Is this new assuming they've never known indicating value what they had in the will of the state you want, they will mismanage now long dated 40 years now Manna was not meant to satisfy them with only meant to sustain them until they got into the land that flowed with milk and honey oil and corn and fades and pomegranates. It was only meant as a temporary feast by a temporary food. They were only to spend a little time in the wilderness, they were come out of Egypt to Canaan, but because of their going around and around and around and around in the not believing God, but they've never known indicating now. In that time 40 years.

There were children born at that time. Let's imagine a kid he's 14 years of age he born in the wilderness his parents to come out of Egypt, but he's a wilderness boy.

He never says mama what's for breakfast. He knows what's for breakfast Manna. He never says mama Launcelot Gino's. What's for lunch Manna. He never says mama what's for supper. What's for supper. Manna is a monologue we don't have tomorrow.

What we don't have more Manna Manna Manna Manna Manna Manning leaving management suppertime Manna all is Manna Manna Manna is all wicked now supposedly decide to go to celebrate their willingness remember God's in this passenger celebrate in the land not in the wilderness. You have a lot to celebrate in the wilderness. I suppose that they are the father sitting on the hot rock sunsetting the cactus and the father said we don't have the feast of Passover that would add to what we do and he said were celebrating son, I met this kid assert sermons about Canaan.

That's always are just some of back pain is never sinking. He might've heard Pastor Rogers preach about Danish but he's not saying Canaan. His parents are not living in Canaan. His parents and I living the victorious fit for life a lot lately and victory quality is proud to say that come out of Egypt, but I've never known indicating the kind they say outside celebrating Felix around to her what rattlesnake goes by son is boiling. Tumbleweed is coming along well with pilots were celebrating what God is nonporous.

They said that the killings that time we got back to Egypt. I mean, where there was sufficient garlic some leaks and melons and finding is in the desert. I'm okay. That's why the bed was getting a lot of our kids are good people. They have come out, but they've never going. They have never learned how to live in victory before their children and the children somehow are sincere when they feel like they had just simply missed it. Alfred God brought us out that God might bring us in, and if you have been one of those simply dumped in the desert.

You have to understand not only must you receive a gracious provision salvation, but you must realize a grand practice, which is a trait that God has for you is 1/3 thing you must respect a grievous problem. There is a grievous problem and what is that problem.

Look, if you will again in go back to our text now. Next to 17 and look at verse eight.

Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel what is Amalek who is Amalek, Amalek was again but he was the grandson of Esau and who was, he saw what he saw. He remember was a man who sold his birthright for a mess of pottage. I don't have time to get into it but he saw was a profane man.

Esau sold his spiritual things for a bolus to Pam and he was more interested in the present and future material than the eternal the things of the flesh, not the things of the spirit and therefore the Bible calls Esau in Hebrews chapter 12, a profane person who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright, and the Bible teaches in Malachi that God has a perpetual warfare declared upon Esau. Listen to the Scripture. Malachi 1 verses one through four. The burden of the Lord to Israel by Malachi. I have loved you, that the Lord yet you say where MS Columbus was not Esau Jacob's brother set the Lord yet. I love Jacob and I hated Esau and latest mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness, where is even said grandpa, but we will return and build the desolate places save a lot of those, they shall build but I will throw down, and they shall call them the border of of wickedness and the people against whom the Lord had indignation forever. I once got talking about God is not talk about little babies only says I hate Esau he's talking about a whole nation based on by the Edomites and is not just about people in physical bodies is talk about principal and I present was a flash not just complicated, so pay attention. Amalek is the grandson of Esau. He is a part of that category of persons that God says I have a sexual war with what is Amalek represent Amalek represents what all of us have in us and it is the flesh, that's you and remember I said I had a church member Avila difficulty with bring you there is an Amalek in you, he is the grandson of Esau and you have this down in your Bibles. Romans chapter 8 verses six and seven to be carnally minded that were currently means fleshly minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God's court is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. And in Galatians 5 verse 17 the flesh lusts against the spirit and the spirit against the flesh bear is that principal that will come against you, the flesh, coming up Monday, will your part two of this important lesson from Adrian Rogers but maybe today's you listened you have questions regarding how to place your faith fully in Jesus Christ.
