He BOUND the strong man (spiritual evil) and removed what was in his house (Mt. 12:25-37). Jesus set people free from the power of darkness, and brought them into his kingdom of light. What is more astounding is that Jesus gives that authority to US! First he starts with the twelve disciples. “Jesus summoned his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to cure every disease and every sickness.” (Mt. 10:1).
