Who Controls The World?

Those who belong to Jesus are protected from the devil by Jesus. The enemy of your soul cannot do anything to harm you if you belong to Christ Jesus. This is what John says in 1 John 5. He writes:

We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the One who was born of God keeps them safe, and the evil one cannot harm them. 19 We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one. – 1 John 5:18-19 (NIV)

He says that the whole world, or the system of the world, is under the control of the evil one. All of the evil in this world is because of the enemy. Satan is the enemy and He is working to keep the world under his control. But the good news is that Jesus has overcome the enemy. He has overcome the devil. The devil is a defeated enemy and he cannot control you or harm you if you belong to Jesus. Do not waste any more of your time in the enemy’s camp! Give your life to Jesus today! Let Him set you free from the clutches of Satan and become a child of God.
