The Kingdom of the Lord, the Kingdom of Satan, and Spiritual Warfare

In the air are Satan and his evil host. On earth are his servants–the masses of demons–and his innumerable worldwide human slaves. Throughout the once Christian West and America Satan’s slaves are all of the ungodly souls who have rejected our Lord Jesus Christ in favor of darkness, rebellion, autonomy, power, materialism, and a life of sin.

(Linda Kimball – RenewAmerica) “And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you used to walk when you conformed to the ways of this world and of the ruler of the power of the air, the spirit who is now at work in the sons of disobedience. All of us also lived among them at one time, fulfilling the cravings of our flesh and indulging its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature children of wrath.

“But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in our trespasses. It is by grace you have been saved! And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages He might display the surpassing riches of His grace, demonstrated by His kindness to us in Christ Jesus.

“For it is by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not from yourselves; it is the gift of God, not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance as our way of life” (Ephesians 2: 1-10).

In these passages Paul seeks to demonstrate to his readers that there are two kingdoms in which people exist. One is the kingdom of Satan. The other is the kingdom of our Lord:

“For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son” (Colossians 1:13).

God’s kingdom is eternal, infinite, reality, both in time and in space. Since God Himself is Reality, His kingdom is eternal and infinite as well. Furthermore, since God Himself is in light, truth, goodness, and beauty so also is His kingdom in light, truth, goodness, and beauty. View article →
