Kingdoms In the general world view and in some churches, people seem to understand that there are two kingdoms. One is Gods kingdom and one is satans kingdom and that there is a war going on between the two. This is of gnostic origin and has many people in a state of fear because of false beliefs. The truth is that there is one Kingdom, and that is the kingdom of God. God is ruler over all. Within Gods kingdom, there are groups or mini kingdoms and this is where man and satan fall in. Both are subject to God. Satan can do nothing without Gods authority. The good news is that as christians we have been given authority by Jesus and satan has no hold over us. satan is defeated every time in the name of Jesus. There is only one ruler and therefore only one Kingdom, and the ruler is God! We can all try and think why God allows satan to do what he does, but in the end Gods ways are not our ways, they are better than our ways.
