A kingdom is ruled or governed by a head, called a "king." It is from this that the term "kingdom" comes. If there is a spiritual dominion of an evil nature, it is natural to expect it to have some governing head, or king. Such is the case. This king is spoken of by Jesus when he says, "If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand?" (Luke 11:18.) It is by Satan, then, that this kingdom of spiritual darkness is governed. It was of this ruler that the Lord further said, "He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own, for he is a liar, and the father of it." (John 8:44.)
