Is the Spirit of Columbia the Head Demon Over the United States? Is this Demon Referenced in Biblical Prophecy? by Brian Shilhavy for Health Impact News
One of the teachings of the Bible that I have referenced frequently in my writings is that the entire world system, particularly its political and financial systems, is all part of Satan’s kingdom.
This is the system that all of us are born into naturally, and to escape this demonic system, we have to be “born again” spiritually to enter into the Kingdom of God, ruled by Jesus Christ.
We are then called the “children of God,” because of our rebirth spiritually.
We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one. We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true—even in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life. (1 John 5:19-20)
When Jesus Christ allowed himself to be executed to fulfill prophecy, he redeemed the entire human race and passed judgment on Satan and his demonic hierarchy who rule the world.
See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.
For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority.
In him you were also circumcised, in the putting off of the sinful nature, not with a circumcision done by the hands of men but with the circumcision done by Christ, having been buried with him in baptism and raised with him through your faith in the power of God, who raised him from the dead.
When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross.
And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. (Colossians 2:8-15)
The Greek words in the original text of the Bible that refer to Satan and his administration, are usually translated with English words such as “power” and “authorities.”
Jesus defeated them at the cross by his voluntary sacrifice, ruling against them in the court of justice in the spiritual realm, allowing anyone who so chooses to leave Satan’s kingdom and join the Kingdom of God under the New Covenant through the rebirth.
“The prince of this world now stands condemned.” (Words of Jesus recorded in John 16:11)
Satan and his administration, however, have yet to be sentenced to their punishment, which the Bible explains to us will still happen at a future date. Until that time, they still rule the world system.
