The Hope of Christ's Authority Part One
Transcript of The Hope of Christ's Authority Part One
The curse of sin
Death in humanity
Dominated by Satan
Destruction in creation
“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one”
Absence of righteousness
“There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God”
Not understanding their condition and not seeking God
Incapable of self-rescue
"Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)”
1 John 3:10
“In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.”
2 Timothy 2:26
“And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.”
The wicked religion of men
The wicked possession of demons
“16 As we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a slave girl who had a spirit of divination and brought her owners much gain by fortune-telling. 17 She followed Paul and us, crying out, "These men are servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to you the way of salvation." 18 And this she kept doing for many days. Paul, having become greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, "I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her." And it came out that very hour.”
“18 And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him. 19 Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee. 20 And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.”
