Life Beyond the Grave: 3 John’s Story. He was a minister of darkness until he met the power of Light
Satan has worshipers too, and priests that call down darkness from the spiritual world onto the unsuspecting, unguarded world we live in.
John’s story reveals that Satanic forces influence the culture, our neighborhoods, our families, and every level of society because we have taken the light of truth away. Darkness fills the void, but the light of God through the power of Jesus crushes demonic forces, scatters the powers of evil, and frees those captive to its seductive enticements.
Who and what powers influence your life, and destroy the blessings that God promises to all of those who put their trust in Him, His truth, and His son. Who and what will you face when you die?
Jesus is the only deliverance from sin and death, and the powers of darkness that seek to enslave us.
Hebrews 2:14-18 (NKJV) 14 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15 and deliver those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
16 For indeed He does not give aid to angels, but He does give aid to the seed of Abraham. 17 Therefore, in all things He had to be made like [His] brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things [pertaining] to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. 18 For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.
