THE BATTLE BELONGS TO THE LORD
John 12:31 acknowledges that Satan is the ruler of this world. But Jesus is the Commander of the Army of the Lord, and Christians everywhere are called to join His forces against Satan. It is a constant conflict that rages on the battlefield of earth, one in which the Army of the Lord will ultimately prevail. John assures believers this is the case in his first epistle: “the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” In World War II, the Axis powers won battle after battle, but the Allied forces won in the end. So it will be on the spiritual battlefield here on earth. Evil forces seem to have the upper hand in so many places, but the forces of God will ultimately be the victor.
