Dr. Tony Evans says none of us has the clout to take on Satan single-handedly see Jesus on the battle point. This is the alternative with Dr. Tony Evans, author, speaker, pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the urban alternative. Even people who always wear their seatbelts in the car will rush into spiritual battle without proper protection.
Let's join Dr. Evans as he explains how we can avoid dangerous mistake when talking about spiritual things you should know by now that this world will buy angels, Satan, we are told, the prince of this world.
John 1231 lets us know that charge and the reason he's in charge become a friend out, who was made a little lower than the angels, was told by God.
This program can only work by total obedience to me turned our world over to the evil one that the angelic conflict that was operating in history pass to become part of time as man would know it.
God's grace resisted Satan attempts to totally take over that by allowing him angelic host to wage war in the heavenly's always happening in the biblical realm is not the mimic of what is happening in the spiritual realm, God's plan was being fulfilled. Even in Adam's failure because even though he failed and brought back to the human race because if you eat of the tree in the midst of the garden you shall die. You shall surely die. God was working the plan Whetstone through the lesser man, he would overcome the greater angels you have made man a little lower than the angels, and crowned him with glory problem is that we are caught in this battle with our families. We caught it in our personal struggles and labs recorded.
We have to face the reality of sickness, illness and death, and yet not promise that man will that's coming a time when angels will no longer run this universe. It will no longer be at the whim of the devil and his post by Michael the Archangel, and his host and weeping ponds on this cosmic chessboard is coming a time when the lesser agreement but the problem the problem is how do we get rid of the types because of this world order. Satan's world became cars passed all in Adam all the world. The Bible says began to deteriorate man was all the animals to control nature now would have to fight for his very existence. Why would an answer come from the fix this mess and had not calculated the power of Satan with the plan of God and trouble to create man the lesser to rule the greater demonstrate his glory, the answer introduced to in Hebrews chapter 2 Hebrews where the first two chapters are in fact a detailed discussion of the angelic conflict lets us know Jesus says in verse nine we made a little what the angel's name Jesus, because of the suffering of map, crowned with glory and honor and by the grace of God he might taste death for every man introduced to Jesus on the floor everywhere and the authority to waive spiritual victoriously will enable us to stop being loses the battle that starts but that we can't get out of. Possibly after a week, day after day, year after year keeping Satan destroy no family splitting up marriages, only children controlling our minds pressing our passions while locating this this game will be back. That's the question of authority.
The author of Hebrews says God is introduced another person to the equation and we see Jesus is your ability to see Jesus and understand what you see, that will introduce you authority you never knew possible if you only see Jesus you would see someone who had already won the battle for you. My task today this week to be winners and losers see the man of all men see Jesus. I see the one by the grace of God, but want to remove the parts. It is our inability to see things that have limited authority in the realm of spiritual warfare.
I want you to see three things about Jesus today. I want you to see the person of Jesus.
I want you to understand the payment of Jesus and then I want you to come to live on. The position objects. First of all, the person of Jesus would send God all the circuit. This battle is not over because the woman is going to have a seed should not give birth to a baby baby baby come along to see maybe will crush your head rose to feel, but it will stop you out through the woman.
Why because I have God put Satan want to question you want to embarrass him and then crush you with something less than you will be the seed of the woman eloquently. Galatians 4: Paul says in I love this verse. But when the time had come, God sent his son to get this ball born under the law, God made a promise that the sea serpent but would take before the sea would come some way plan this way plan provided relief sin. Now it was time for the same and offered them on the layaway plan is layaway plan. It was their way of saying one day have a baby. Satan said it was time for payment and nightwear sand just when the time is right. When all the condition at the right time something marvelous took place on other things made at the right time. The whole world had now been consolidated under one file, every major nation in the world could not only take himself and his family could take his message that he wanted to the level worldwide. Because now that was world consolidation of the Roman empire.
It was the perfect time because everybody can speak a common language appointment.
Greek everyday so that biblical things could be understood throughout the nation with a common use become this issue in the Roman Empire. What are we going to do about the Jewish people keep talking about this coming Messiah; mental rebirth for two fast because you miss it. God sent his son, born of a woman.
The sun was but the baby was born. I like where I put it. I said a child is born, but a son is given a child had to come to the birth canal. This already existed in the person of Jesus regarding theology. The hypostatic union was very happy beside being poured into humanity. The seed so that I am performing at Mary's womb and long. Maybe God incarnate legs belong to a baby, what's down the mountain one day in humanity and blow like the noonday sun, partner, baby boom because you see beside with only the baby with God.
One with the power of God, the God kind of man God sent his son born in order to reclaim you and get back to the angel Satan and bring it back to mankind. But Satan wasn't about to give up trying to sabotage God's plan.

The plan didn't gamble the third and handle him generation of common and down to become a sacred and joint regions of Egypt. God said to get direction from Sam one day what God's what Satan told you while you are installed on flowed.
He tries to which, based on the word of God. The Angels came Satan realizing that he would not by killing him crucified. And so what we by John chapter 22 Satan entered Judas Iscariot and motivated him to go out and betray Jesus Christ to be on the picture miracle demonstrate that he had the right to roll in the challenge Satan based on obedience and dependency on God and Satan knew what it was all about. First John chapter 3 verse that Jesus came to destroy all the works of Satan says okay we got a little different strategy than anticipated. I God never told me he was going through this one happy so maybe I get rid of them on the cross.
Maybe if I get rid of this person on the cross. Maybe if I just go out with God and destroy him and this is the best man win. It. And so the person of Christ led to the payment of Christ.
Colossians 2 in order to conquer Satan that had to be conquered because that is the consequence sent to Congress that you got that because it was sin that only one way that that's the resurrection. So God assigned Jesus Christ to die.
Satan chapter 2 verse 13 and when you were in your transgressions and circumcision of your flesh made you alive with him.
Forget all your trespass, God had to deal with the sin problem in the way what the sin problem.
What Christ God provided a way to forgive sin not read verse 14. The first phrase having cancel that consent decree against us, which were possible to us. When Jay was tried by Pilate pilots that didn't see the great song in three languages. Greek and Latin you read words you will become glad you only want one say is been crucified for treason because he was saying that all he came to the company came around, but little did Satan know that all the cloth that said no person who would be able to save all all all in the Bible says God becomes guilty. Sin became sin that we might be made the righteousness of God and help more and against all sinful, all all Christ, Jesus Christ, and they crucified him on the earthly realm of the world that every man on the cross with the world on his shoulder to spread hate in fall oh God and all God was made by Jesus Christ cancel out the crazy stuff which will Satan could always bring about say about God to know that if holiness will not tolerate sin. So what he will do is bring it up.
She will say what you can do anything with that guy could look at what I got the degree God and bring him to tell us that all already said what you said you can never become unsaved lot.
