The devil is looking for a “place.” When we believe his lies, we create for him a “place.” And we desecrate and un-create ourselves. That place is called “Hell.” The devil lies through “the principalities and powers” of this world. And so they teach each of us to construct a house controlled by greed and fear, locked down in shame and haunted by death. To resist the devil is to invite Jesus into every room of your house. Jesus is the END of Hell.
