Note: Jesus didn’t run scared from apostate, wicked spirits. Jesus had many conversations with Satan both when he was on earth as a human and as Michael in Jude 9. Also, 1 Pet. 3:19 explains that Christ preached to the spirits in prison. Jesus preached to them. Nowhere in the scriptures is there any precedent for the truth having to run scared from anything untrue. The truth has nothing to fear.
