The Bible teaches us that Satan is the god of this age (2 Cor. 4:4) and that the unbelieving world lies under his sway (1 John 5:19). Those that have not found forgiveness in Jesus Christ are held captive in Satan’s kingdom of darkness (Colossians 1:13). But the Son of God came into this world “to destroy the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8). He with His Divine authority breaks into this dark kingdom and sets captives free.
