Wednesday Words: NT Scholar Bill Cook on Our Promise of Victory in Spiritual Warfare

Today’s Wednesday words are from my friend, Bill Cook, New Testament professor at Southern Seminary. If you find yourself in spiritual conflict today, I trust you’ll find his words encouraging. 

“The opening two chapters of the Bible describe in the most beautiful language imaginable God’s creation of heaven and earth. In a similar way, the Bible culminates with a magnificent description of the new heaven and new earth (Revelation 21–22). Between the Bible’s opening and closing chapters, it depicts a war being fought on a cosmic scale—a war fought between God and the devil. This war is played out both in the spiritual realm and on the earth. It is not a fair fight, however, because the war is not between two equals—the outcome is never in doubt. From the very beginning, the doom of God’s archenemy, the devil, is certain (Gen 3:15).”
