Overview

The author reminds us that the devil operates on a worldwide scale as well as upon individuals. He traces the confusion and chaos of present-day society to the destructive work of satan and states that in a day where there is a renewed fascination with astrology, the occult, spiritism and ‘doctrines of devils’, to be aware of these evil powers, otherwise it will almost certainly mean that we will be defeated by them.

“These forces of greed, selfishness and pride ever lead to a spirit of distrust and uncertainty” (Page 21)

“That is the great characteristic of Christian people. Everything is new. Because they have a new mind, they have a new outlook, a new orientation, they see things in an entirely new way. Their attitude towards everything around them is influenced by this profound change that has taken place within them, and their reaction to all that happens is, of necessity, different from the reaction of other people. Consequently, anything that happens to Christian men and women immediately becomes a test of who they are and what they believe as Christians.” (Page 14)

“Nebuchadnezzar was not only inflated with pride and a sense of his own greatness, he went beyond that. He set himself up as a god and demanded people’s worship. Now it is just there that the demonic element comes in. That is not mere evil, but something further, a kind of possession; the man gets beyond himself, beside himself.” (Page 23)

“Anything that demands the worship of a man, or of a state, or of a system, any totalitarian society that requires total allegiance, is demonic.” (Page 25)

“to work it out in a little more detail, the devil works upon our pride” (Page 20)

David Martyn Lloyd-Jones

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899–1981) is recognized as one of the last century’s most gifted preachers and writers. He was influential in the Reformed wing of the British evangelical movement in the 20th century.

Lloyd-Jones first studied medicine, but left that field and went to Wales in 1927 to follow his calling to preach. He became the minister of a Welsh Presbyterian Church in Abervon, South Wales where he ministered for a decade.

In 1929, Lloyd-Jones went to London where he was appointed the associate pastor of Westminster Chapel working alongside G. Campbell Morgan. This ministry lasted for 30 years until Lloyd-Jones retired in 1968. He also served at Inter-Varsity Fellowship of Students which is known today as the Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship.

Through his books and commentaries, Lloyd Jones has had a profound influence upon the Christian church and the lives of many worldwide. His books include The Gospel in Genesis: From Fig Leaves to Faith, Great Doctrines of the Bible, and the titles in the Crossway D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones Collection and Select Expositions of Martyn Lloyd-Jones.
