Lessons about the demonic world

This is excellent from Adrian Reynolds:

All taken from Luke 8.26-39 which contains not less than all this stuff and probably more:

1. The demonic world is REAL (v27)
2. The demonic world is OPPOSED to JESUS (v28)
3. The demonic world is EXTENSIVE (v30)
4. The demonic world is DANGEROUS (v29)

But…

5. The demonic world is LIMITED (by space and time)(v32)
6. The demonic world is UNDER JESUS (v31-32)
7. The demonic world is DOOMED (v31,33)
8. The demonic world is ultimately POWERLESS to stop salvation (v35-39)

Brilliant!

Only, if I’ve read 2 Cor. 10.3-5 correctly and Eph 6.10-18, our neglect of the battling aspect of Christianity and our neglect of, in particular, prayer, renders us much more open to the terrors of 1-4 and much less certain of the reassurances of 5-8….

Peter serves as a pastor-teacher, at home and abroad, resourcing gospel-centred communities.
