John Outline
John 12:31

31 Now is the 1ajudgment of this 2world; now shall the bruler of this world be cast out.

312 The Greek word here means arrangement (see note 152 in 1 John 2). The world is an evil system arranged systematically by Satan. All the things on the earth, especially those related to mankind, and all the things in the air have been systematized by Satan into his kingdom of darkness to occupy people and frustrate them from accomplishing the purpose of God, and to distract them from the enjoyment of God. This evil system, the kingdom of darkness, was judged when its ruler, Satan, was cast out by the Lord's being crucified in the flesh. See note 311
