Text: Dan 7:15-25 (King James Version)         

  "Father, I am your servant, willing and desiring to be used to bless your people."

                                       The Fields are white and the laborers are few!
C.H. Spurgeon said, "If God does not save a man by truth he certainly will not save them by lies, and if the old gospel is not competent to work a revival, then we will do without the revival;"

 

1 Peter 5:8   Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

1 Peter 5:9   Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

1 Peter 5:10   But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

1 Peter 5:11   To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

 

Revelation 5:2   And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?

Revelation 5:3   And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.

Revelation 5:4   And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.

Revelation 5:5   And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

 

Let's pray. Father,  Open my eyes so I can see Your truth.

Open my ears so I can hear Your voice.
Open my mind so I can understand Your Word.
And open my heart so I may receive all that You want me to receive. AMEN

  

1 John 2:12   I write unto you, little children, because your sins are

forgiven you for his name's sake.

1 John 2:13   I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye

have known the Father.

1 John 2:14   I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have

overcome the wicked one.

 

John 16:33   These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

 

Jn. 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Power to become = the means, the right, the authority, the priveledge.

Jesus whole reason for coming to this earth, was not just to save the lost, but to restore us back to our rightful place as the sons of God. Through the process of forgiveness and regeneration, the blood and the spirit.

Salvation is accomplished not only by the cleansing of the blood, but also the regeneration by his spirit, = being born again. Once our spirit has been regenerated then his spirit comes to live inside us. ( We become by virtue of this indwelling spirit of God, The Sons of God.

As born again believers the only thing between you and manifesting sonship, is Knowledge and application.

(2 Pet 1:3-4 ) According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

As new creations in Christ Jesus we occupy the same position of sonship with the father that Jesus does,
(Heb 2:10 KJV) For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

There are certain rights and priveledges that come with sonship,
(#1) is the Authority and Power over all of satans kingdom. (Lu. 10:19) Behold I give unto you power=authority, to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy... (This power he is speaking of is positional power.)

(#2) every promise of God belongs to you, it is part of your inheritance as a child of God, You don't have to pray for it, you don't have to fast for it, you don't have to be good enough for it, you don't have to earn it. You just have to take your place as his Sons and receive it.

Can you prove that by scripture please?)
(1 Cor 3:21-23 ) Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours; Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours; And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.
(Rom 8:32 KJV) He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
(Eph 1:3 KJV) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
2 Pet 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

Remember the story of the prodigal son? Remember the son that stayed home and how he was angry when his brother came home? Listen to him
(Luke 15:29-30) And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends: But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.
Listen to his fathers words.
Luke 15:31 And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.

(1 John 3:1-2 KJV) Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

The last aspect of manifesting sonship is: Using our position of authority and power to bless those who don't know Jesus or have not come to a personal knowledge of who they are in Christ and what he has accomplished for them.
(John 14:12-14) Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

(Rom 5:17 KJV) For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)

How are we going to reign in this life?
Through our position in Christ as Sons of God
Through Righteousness- = Right standing with God. Right standing with God is: Being restored to the position adam originally had in the garden as a son of God.
This was the end of the reading of the genealogy of Jesus.
(Luke 3:38 KJV) Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.
And Beloved Now are we the Sons of God.

  

John 14:12   Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

John 14:13   And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

John 14:16   And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

John 14:17   Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

John 14:18   I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

John 14:19   Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.

John 14:20   At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

 

Mark 16:15   And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Mark 16:16   He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Mark 16:17   And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

Mark 16:18   They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Mark 16:19   So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

Mark 16:20   And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

 

Luke 24:46   And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:

Luke 24:47   And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

Luke 24:48   And ye are witnesses of these things.

Luke 24:49   And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

Luke 24:50   And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
