But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible (Ephesians 5:13 ESV)
God’s Word is a light that reveals the concealed aspects of the spiritual realm, which are not visible to the physical eye. Besides illuminating the nature of God, His Word also exposes Satan and the workings of the kingdom of darkness.
A critical requirement for triumphing over Satan and his dominion of darkness is understanding who they are and how they function. We must first see into it to control what happens in the spiritual realm. However, discerning the enemy’s operations presents a significant challenge because the spiritual realm is invisible to our natural senses.
Humanity has always been intrigued by the supernatural. In my younger years, I was captivated by testimonies from Christians who had once been involved in occult practices, describing their experiences with Satan and his demons. I wrongly assumed that to understand the workings of the underworld genuinely, we needed insights like these from people with firsthand experience.
Though we can glean some understanding from others, God’s primary instrument for exposing the works of darkness is His Word, not human testimonies. Let me emphasize this: we don’t need people who have delved into the underworld to inform us about Satan or how he operates. Such accounts are unreliable and can be rife with deception, manipulation, and error.
I am astounded by how much the Bible reveals about Satan and his activities. If Christians would study, understand, and believe what the Bible discloses about the kingdom of darkness, many of the odd doctrines, misconceptions, and questionable practices surrounding spiritual warfare would vanish. Oddly enough, much of what transpires in spiritual warfare is based on individual revelations or experiences.
I encourage you to let the Bible teach you about Satan and his methods. You’ll be amazed at its wealth of information and how it exposes many things about Satan that Christians often ignore. Let the light of the Word expose the kingdom of darkness.
Why is God’s Word described as light? (Psalm 119:105).
Apply the Word
If you’re eager to understand how Satan is operating in your life, open the Bible—let the light of the Word illuminate your understanding.
Ask the Father to guide you in walking in the light of His Word as you engage in spiritual warfare.
