Chaos is the disruption of God’s good design, and the forefront of the darkness in the spiritual realm that is over the world. The forces of evil in the spiritual realm knew that Jesus came to overthrow chaos and the power of darkness. Darkness is also self-destructive, and in the same way that Legion was cast into the herd of pigs and drowned in a lake, so too every force of darkness will eventually be cast into the lake of fire. Violence, disease, chaos, and death will not have the final word: Jesus will. The war with the spiritual realm is real, but Jesus is the victor and through him we too can have victory. Jesus not only delivers his people from evil, but he also makes them new, clothing them with his righteousness and granting them a peace beyond understanding. Yet, without Christ we remain enslaved to sin and the powers of darkness.
