VIDEO Satan’s Sway

We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one. 1 John 5:19

Why are our public universities, the global media, the global economy, and the governments of the world gripped by wrong thinking and godless conduct? Why is the persecution of Christians reaching unprecedented levels? Why are people screaming at each other on television, and why has pornography overtaken our technology?

It’s because the whole world is under the sway of the wicked one.

He is the father of lies (John 8:44), the power of darkness (Colossians 1:13), the ruler of this world (John 14:30), the prince of the power of the air, and the spirit that works in the children of disobedience (Ephesians 2:2). His craft and power are great. But, as Martin Luther said, “Though this world with devils filled should threaten to undo us, we will not fear for God has willed His truth to triumph through us.”

We are the children of God, and He has provided us with all we need when we face spiritual battles. Let’s be armored up, prayed up, and filled up—so we can stand up.

Our Commander in Chief has already won the war, and He wants us to get in on the victory every day that we live. David Jeremiah

  1. Awwww, Chuck Smith. My very first (re)encounter with Christ as an adult was listening to all of his sermons and there was a course we took (can’t remember the name of it). Thank you for this profound look at evil in the world. Blessings and honor, Christine
