Scripture: John 12:20-32
The conflict of rulers is complete in the accomplishment of verse 31. John 12:31 now becomes the foundation for all Kingly authority, “Now is the judgment of this world. Now the ruler of this world will be cast out.” Jesus either ascended from the grave with keys to death and hell or He did not. If He did, then the ruler of this world is judged. It is the responsibility of the church to enforce that judgment or to demand that judgment in the Throne-Room which makes every single believer an agent of God’s judicial authority. Have we accepted our badge? Have we accepted the responsibility? Are we demanding the ouster of the ruler of this world? If not, we are not accessing everything that Jesus died for and affecting what needs to be changed!
