God’s Master Plan – Ps Sharon Bendixen (WTB)
Pastor John’s surge right now is for Evangelism.
This is your time to bring unsaved, backslidden family and/or friends, so that the sounds of these
songs can permeate and penetrate and bring people to Jesus.
We are believing God together, for people to get born again.
I’m going to use the words of the song God’s Master Plan as a guideline and a framework to do a
series of teachings from Scripture. The Bible is the God-breathed, eternal, ever-living, infallible,
perfect Word of God – that we reverence. We will never get tired of the Message of the Gospel.
Adam was created to rule and to reign in the earth and to have dominion. Adam gave the right to
rule away, through disobedience to the Word of God, to the serpent, Satan, the devil. Man was
created in the image of God and man fell. That is why redemption had to come. Someone
spotless and sinless had to pay the price and that was God’s only Son.
16 For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten
(unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come
to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.
17 For God did not send the Son into the
world in order to judge (to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that the
world, but that the world might find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him (John
No one is safe in this world without Jesus. Jesus came in order that the world might be made safe
8 For this purpose, the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works
of the devil (1 John 3:8 KJV). Jesus came to destroy the works of the enemy in the lives of the
world (because God so loved the world).
4 Jesus gave his life for our sins, just as God our Father planned, in order to rescue us from this
evil world in which we live in (Galatians 1:4 NLT)
…that he might deliver us from the present evil
world-system (Galatians 1:4 CJB).
4 He has taken us out of this evil world system and set us free
through our salvation (Galatians 1:4 TPT).
We are free from this world system, because now we come into the system of God. We come into
His way of doing things. We are made safe and sound. When we become His children, He keeps
us by day and by night. When we know Who Jesus is in us, and we know our rights as sons of
God, then we can deal with the enemy.
Rising and operating in your authority as a child of God is a learning process of faith with God. If
at first, you don’t succeed, try and try again, because eventually, your faith will connect to that
Word that is true. God has put that instinct in us to keep rising up. Respond to that instinct of
your authority, even though you may have stumbled and fallen in your authority and it didn’t
work. Don’t quit, don’t get offended at God and offended at His Word. Don’t stop learning, pick
up your authority again, rise up in your authority again.
Satan is being unmasked today.
Satan is the god of this world, and he is blinding the minds of unbelievers (2 Corinthians 4:4
KJV). That’s why we pray, that’s why we let our light shine to unbelievers, that’s why we preach
1)Like lightning, he fell
Jesus, and God the Father, and the Holy Spirit are One, and have been from eternity to eternity.
The god of this world fell. Jesus was with God when Satan fell like lightning from heaven (Luke
10:17-19 (KJV). Jesus said, “I give unto you power to tread on all the power of the enemy and
nothing shall by any means hurt you”. That word tread is also authority; to defeat; to trample on.
2) iniquity found,
Look in Ezekiel 28:12-17 (NKJV) how God created Satan and what God says about Lucifer the
anointed cherub. He was an exquisite being, he was the Archangel of heaven, perfect in his ways
from the day he was created.
Iniquity was found in him. He decided to become what he was, he chose it.
-disgraced from glory,
He corrupted his wisdom for the sake of his splendor. He was cast to the ground, lain before
kings, that they might gaze at him. Jesus is the King of kings. Are we not kings and priests? Jesus
laid Satan’s defeat before us so that we can gaze at it, and trample upon serpents and scorpions –
so that nothing by any means should hurt us. We gaze at his defeat, so we walk in victory. That is
the triumph of the cross, the power of the blood of Christ. When the enemy comes against us in
our life, we gaze at his defeat and we rise up in our authority.
3)desiring man’s crown.
Genesis 1:26-28 (KJV). Man is God’s crowning glory, created in a very image/likeness of God
Himself; to have dominion, to trample on every creeping thing; to be blessed; fruitful, and to
multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it. You have authority over things that want to
creep into your life, of death and destruction, to bring fear and torment and oppression and
depression. Satan was desiring man’s crown to rule and reign as king in this life. It’s our right to
multiply and produce and replenish and have abundance in our lives, in every area of our lives (in
relationships, provision, assignment, creativity).
Psalm 8:3-6 (NKJV) Man was made a little lower than the angels, crowned with glory and honour,
made to have dominion, created to rule.
4) The right to rule was given away; high treason against God was wrought on that day.
Read in Genesis 3:1-4 (KJV) how that actually happened. Just like that, they fell. Eve took of the
fruit, she ate it, she gave it to her husband, he ate it, and they fell. Satan still comes with lies to us
to steal the Word from our heart and light from our eyes. Believe what Jesus says about Satan.
You cannot believe in the true living God and not believe that there is not a devil. Jesus was the
One who said Satan is a murderer, a liar, the author of sickness.
We can live triumphant in this world, as sons of God, safe and sound.
Some have received Jesus as Christ and have come out of that fallen state and are walking as
sons of God. Others are still coming, and everyday people are getting born again.
2 As many as believe in Him, He gives authority to become sons of God (John 1:12 KJV) to walk
daily in the triumph of the cross and the power of the Blood and in the glory of His resurrection
life that is in you.
If you haven’t made Jesus the Lord of your life or if you’ve backslidden, today is the day where
you can say, “Lord, I’m coming back”.
