Satan is running this World

Daily "Words of Wisdom" from Apply

“​We know we originate with God, but the whole world is lying in the [power of the] wicked one” (1 John 5:19).

This world is lying in the power of the evil one. This truth is one which many do not want to accept. Of course, Yahweh is in charge and sovereign and all capable. But Satan runs the world right now. It only takes a minute to see that human governments have failed man, and that starvation, death, sin, and selfishness abound. Is that a reflection of our holy God of love? No way.

The deceiver is described as the one misleading the entire earth. Revelations 12:9  So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him.

The only answer to the problems of this world is God’s Kingdom, which will set it all straight again. That is why Jesus said in Matthew 9: 9-10 “YOU​ must pray, then, this way: ‘Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. Let your kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also upon earth.” Nothing short of YHWH’s kingdom coming will end the evil effects of Satan upon the current system of things.
