Here at the RWI we talk a lot about destroying the works of the devil. You could say it's a strange obsession of ours. And you'd be right. But we're okay with that because Jesus talked a lot about it, too. The New Testament tells us in no uncertain terms that Jesus has come and whose reign He is here to end.
The acts of love Jesus performs throughout the Gospels, He's clear to show, are also acts of rebellion against the one He calls "the Prince of this World" (John 12:31, 14:30, 16:11). When He heals a crippled woman on the Sabbath, He paints the picture of what's actually going on like this " . . . should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has kept bound for eighteen long years, be set free on the Sabbath day from what bound her?" (Luke 13:16, added emphasis).
There are numerous lists in the Bible of the signs of the Kingdom of Heaven as it comes, and the prior rule is abolished. But what does it look like for us, today? And, more importantly, how is it accomplished?
We were hoping you'd ask.
