2 God’ Original Plan Genesis 1:28 NKJV “Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
3 Genesis 2:15 NKJV“Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it.”
4 Genesis 2:19-20 NKJV“Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name. 20 So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him.”
5 A Shadow Of Things to Come Hebrews 10:1 NKJV“For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect.”
6 “Build A Sanctuary” Exodus 25:8 NKJV “And let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them. 9 According to all that I show you, that is, the pattern of the tabernacle and the pattern of all its furnishings, just so you shall make it.”Exodus 25:22 NKJV“And there I will meet with you, and I will speak with you from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are on the ark of the Testimony, about everything which I will give you in commandment to the children of Israel.”
9 As One Having Authority Mark 1:21-22 NKJV21 Then they went into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath He entered the synagogue and taught. 22 And they were astonished at His teaching, for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
10 Authority is Attached to A Mission 1 john 3:8 NKJVHe who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.
11 Jesus Tempted Luke 4:1-9 NKJV Then Jesus, being filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, 2 being tempted for forty days by the devil. And in those days He ate nothing, and afterward, when they had ended, He was hungry. 3 And the devil said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.”4 But Jesus answered him, saying, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.’”
12 Jesus Tempted“Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6 And the devil said to Him, “All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish.7 Therefore, if You will worship before me, all will be Yours. And Jesus answered and said to him, “Get behind Me, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’9 Then he brought Him to Jerusalem, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down from here.”
13 What Temptations Did Satan Use? 1. natural hunger – “turn these stones into bread”2. Jesus’ authority- “If you worship me I will give you”3. Third was His identity- “If you are the son of God”
14 Kris Valloton Says:“If the devil would have know what was going to happen when jesus was crucified he would have killed everyone who was killing jesus.”
15 Jesus Purchased Authority Back From Satan Revelation 1:17-18 NKJV“And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. 18 I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.”
16 Jesus Purchased Authority Back From Satan Matthew 16:19 NKJV“And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
17 Jesus Purchased Authority Back From Satan & Gave it Back! Matthew 28:18-20 NKJV“And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.”
18 Remember: Authority Comes With Mission - Jesus’ mission is now ours- We are co-missioned!
19 Laborers Together With God I Corinthians 3:9“For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.”
20 Our ModelLuke 9:1-2 nkjv“Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. 2 He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.”Luke 9:6 nkjv“So they departed and went through the towns, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere.”
21 Upon Them But Not In Them John 16:7“Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.”John 16:13-15However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. 15 All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.
22 Sound Familiar? Exodus 25:22 NKJV “And there I will meet with you, and I will speak with you from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are on the ark of the Testimony, about everything which I will give you in commandment to the children of Israel.”
23 The Veil Was Torn Mark 15:37-38 “And Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and breathed His last.38 Then the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.”
24 Wait For The Promise Acts 1:4-8 And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; 5 for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” 6 Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” 7 And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. 8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
25 Was This Power limited to the Apostles? -What did jesus say about it?Mark 16:17-18“And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
26 What did the Apostle Paul say about it? -To church in Rome:Romans 8:11“But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.”
27 What did the Apostle Paul say about it? -To the church in Corinth:1 Corinthians 3:16 “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?”
28 Kingdom of God: The Kings Domain Romans 14:17“For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy spirit.”-if the holy spirit is in you, that makes you the kings domain-we must begin to live, pray, and stand on this authority given by the finished work of Jesus to every believer!
