AND THE GOD OF THIS WORLD IS...

... Jesus Christ!


Any questions?

One good purpose for blogging is to bookmark articles which make an impact on you and me.

Today's bookmark is Garrett Paul Parrish's article on "The God of This World" at BibleProphecyFulfilled.org

Although I am puzzled by his translation of kosmos as "age" in John 12:31, I do agree with his conclusion that:
  • Satan was the god of that world (during the time of Old Covenant Israel), and 
  • Christ is the God of this world (New Eternal Covenant Israel, i.e., believers).

The Apostle Paul referred to Satan as "the god of this world (kosmos)" during the transitional 40-year period -- from Jesus' crucifixion to the destruction of the Old Covenant in 70 A.D. He should not, however, be confused with the God of Israel! Context, context, context.

Now, we look back and see who the god of that world was: Satan.

But today we know that Christ is King, the God of this world!
