In Lk 10:18 satan is thrown down from heaven. Demons quake in fear in Mk 1:24 and beg to be left alone when confronted by Jesus. It is contrary to the theme of the Kingdom of God in the experience of Jesus and his disciples as actually experiencing violence at the hands of spirits. God is the Aggressor and evil is on the retreat. I think that maybe we should keep all this in mind as we go to intercession and declarations over our families, churches and nation.
