This is a war

Posted: November 24, 2013 in Theology

Jesus did not just heal our blindness: according to Scripture, he confronted and overcame darkness itself (1 Jn 1:4-5). Jesus did not just set captives free: “he made captivity itself a captive” (Eph 4:8). Jesus did not simply free sinners: he destroyed the power of sin itself (e.g., Rom 7:11; 8:1-2). Jesus did not merely free us from condemnation: he silenced the accuser himself (Rev 12:10). And Jesus did not simply heal our infirmities: he destroyed the lord of death himself (Heb 2:14).
