The Disciples

Mark 3:11-19,27 (NIV)
Whenever the evil spirits saw him, they fell down before him and cried out, “You are the Son of God.” [12] But he gave them strict orders not to tell who he was. [13] Jesus went up on a mountainside and called to him those he wanted, and they came to him. [14] He appointed twelve—designating them apostles—that they might be with him and that he might send them out to preach [15] and to have authority to drive out demons. [16] These are the twelve he appointed: Simon (to whom he gave the name Peter); [17] James son of Zebedee and his brother John (to them he gave the name Boanerges, which means Sons of Thunder); [18] Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James son of Alphaeus, Thaddaeus, Simon the Zealot [19] and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him. [27] In fact, no one can enter a strong man’s house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man. Then he can rob his house.

He has power over evil. He has complete power over evil. Good news

But how come he dies on the cross? But why does John get murdered? But? But? We can list all the evil in the world and question why?

The answer is painfully simple. Angels have corporeal presentations in the Bible. Past the Flood, evil spirits don’t.

Every act of evil unleashed on us/by us since Noah has been perpetrated by human decision.

We see this in our own failed hearts. We see this in Judas Iscariot.

When you betray the way of love you open the window, open the doors to the howling gates of hell.

Which, by the way, cannot stand against Jesus.
