Throughout history, three princes have exercised authority over the earth. The rule of the first, Adam, was pitifully short. His authority was stolen by Satan, the second prince, who brought unspeakable suffering to mankind. This began the supreme drama of all time, the drama of redemption. It is a drama that finds its climax in Satan's defeat and the triumph of the third prince, Jesus Christ, who became a man in order to win back what the first man had lost. To grasp the magnitude of this drama, in which each of us is playing a significant role, we must lift the veil of the visible and peer into the mysteries of the unseen world. Read these pages as you would read a drama. Plunge your mind deeply into God's revelation of His great plan; you will gain new insights into truths that may have become commonplace for you. May you begin each new day by reaffirming your authority in Christ, seated in Him at the right hand of God. And may you go into your world clothed with His armor, filled with His power, armed with the sword of His Spirit, and permeating your life with prayer.
