Ron Craig: The devil is not going to volunteer to stop stealing, killing, and destroying

Reverend Ron Craig

The foundational biblical answer to the concern about the part God plays in world issues today is that, He has already done ALL He is going to do about the devil until the end of this age. Hebrews 2:14 says that through His death Jesus rendered ineffective (the literal Greek) him who had the power of death, that is, the devil. That happened almost 2000 years ago. Our Lord prophesied in John 12:31-32 that through His cross-event, the ruler of this world (system) would be cast out. Second Corinthians 4:4 speaks of the god of this world (or age). That is obviously Satan, who is the same spirit that works in the children of disobedience (Ephesians 2:2). Well, Jesus Christ did die on the cross, so the devil was cast out way back then; just as Jesus promised. Thus, the devil has been an outcast ever since those days; and nothing since has changed Satan’s condition or position. John 16:11 tells us that the Holy Spirit was sent to reveal that the prince of this world, that is the devil, has been judged. In addition to that, Colossians 1:13 assures believers that we have been delivered from the power of darkness—a description of Satan’s kingdom.

ALABAMA JOINS 15 OTHERS STATES TO SUPPORT TRUMP TRAVEL BAN

MONTGOMERY—Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall today joined 15 other states in an amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court asking the Court to uphold the travel ban imposed by President Trump to protect American citizens from terrorism.

The President’s executive order provides a 90-day delay of travelers entering America from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen due to national security concerns regarding those countries.

“The President is rightfully exercising his legal authority to restrict the entry of those who may endanger the safety and security of Americans,” said Attorney General Marshall. “The restricted countries have a strong record of violent acts and terrorism, and it is vital and appropriate that the President’s provisions stand to properly vet travelers from these areas for the protection of our citizens.”  Continue reading ALABAMA JOINS 15 OTHERS STATES TO SUPPORT TRUMP TRAVEL BAN
