Matthew 12:29 - 12:30

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this explanation of Matthew 12:29-30, Steve Gregg discusses the power of the kingdom of God and the Holy Spirit. The spiritual reality of the kingdom cannot be observed in a physical sense, and Nicodemus was told that one must be born again and born of spirit to see it. Jesus operated with the power of the Holy Spirit, allowing him to resist the devil and confront the kingdom of darkness. As a result, the kingdom of darkness retreats when it is faced with the power of the kingdom of God.
