Satan: What does the Bible say about Satan, the Devil?

SATAN: He is evil. He is your enemy. He is real.

SATAN: PRINCE OF DARKNESS

  • IS SATAN FOR REAL?
  • OR IS HE AN INVENTION OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH?
  • WHAT DOES THE BIBLE TELL US ABOUT SATAN?

EVERYBODY WANTS TO BASH THE SATANIC, BUT NO ONE WANTS TO TALK ABOUT SATAN

Saw an interesting comment yesterday about an article written by this writer.  The article was One-World Religion: 25 Quotes about the Coming NWO One World Religion.  The comment was on a social media site by an obviously well-meaning woman whose name began with “V.”  Her comment:

One-World Religion: 25 Quotes About the Coming NWO One World Religion… (These are viewed from a christian perspective, unfortunately, but there are some interesting quotes I haven’t seen before.)

I presume the woman was well-meaning by the types of articles she had featured.  Most of them had to do with evil or the nature of evil and several were about satanic ritual abuse.

(Several others used the graphic and article along with the same comment–and all who used the article collected articles or graphics having to do with evil or the one-world religion or one-world government the Bible assures us is coming.  They fully were interested in the Bible’s prediction without wanting to give credit to where the idea came from.)

So, here was a woman who was very interested in evil–even going to far to label the idea of something extremely evil as “satanic.”  And yet, so deceived that she was firmly committed (at least to judge from her comments) to rejecting the idea that this evil had any source other than humans.

Satan: Humanity has an enemy; Christians too

Which seemed a bit arrogant.

But then, pride was the very first sin.

Perhaps the woman may be excused as we are living in an age of deception, about which we were repeatedly warned.  The deception is so thick, so pervasive, so ubiquitous that some speculate that only an act of a sovereign God can open one’s eyes to reveal the existence or true extent of it.

Where is the devil now and how much control does he have?

Make no mistake: humans are fallen and we live in a fallen world.  But humans, while fully capable of the inhumane, are the lesser evil; the fall had an author and Scripture tells us the name of it’s author.

“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
Revelation 12:9

Upon seeing the woman’s comment, this writer was forced to admit: Satan has done his job exceedingly well in these last days.  This generation–and especially the youth–by denying the possibility of Satan deny themselves any hope of relief from his wiles, deceptions and ultimately, death and destruction.

A great many websites and articles are devoted to sundry topics of evil: The Illuminati, the Freemasons, the Jesuits, the synagogue of Satan, the evil international bankers, cults, etc.  Elaborate charts are constructed of various Hierarchies of Evil; but most, while identifying the many strands used in the weaving, fail to see the tapestry.

This tapestry was given a name almost 2000 years ago by the apostle Paul, who called it the “mystery of iniquity.”  Several have called it the “spirit of lawlessness.”

Does Satan exist?

Very, very few identify the weaver. or his minions–other than a few well-known (and well-promoted) lightning rods such as Adam Weishaupt or Amschel Mayer Rothschild or the cartoonish Aleister Crowley or Anton LaVey.  This is not meant to excuse the obvious wickedness of this group of men; it’s only meant to point out that these men are tiny, obviously much-hyped fleas on a much bigger dog.

And so, the woman whose name begins with “V” will most probably never know that her comment was the inspiration to finish a long-languishing article on the existence the author of evil: Satan.  Not to give him “place” as some imagine it  (When Ephesians 4:27 speaks of “place,” it is refers to a foothold, an opportunity for temptation, or to  aforementioned anger.), but to warn others–like the woman whose name begins with “V”–that there really is an adversary.

This piece the reader sees before him is that “long-languishing article.”

SATAN: Is the Devil for Real? Does Satan exist? Or is he only an invention of the Christian Church?

SATAN: Is the Devil for Real? Does Satan exist? Or is he only an invention of the Christian Church?

IS SATAN FOR REAL?

It’s been said that “The finest trick of the devil is persuading you he does not exist.”

But Satan does really exist and Satan really does hate humanity.

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”
1 Peter 5:8

He really does lie and deceive–and he really, really, really has worked hard to ensure that as many humans as possible follow him to perdition.

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. 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

Whether one chooses to believe in him or not makes no difference.

The Poles in 1939 who chose to believe that Hitler didn’t mean war against them didn’t influence the outcome of events by their willful ignorance.  However, a great many perished due to their unfortunate choice of following the path of “Ignorance is bliss.”

If many who DO believe in Satan are deceived, what hope have those who deny the very existence of their tormenter?

NOTE: Christians are NOT to rail or blaspheme against the devil–although Christians are to hate evil and, by extension Satan, who is the author of evil.

Is it Biblical to Hate Satan?  Does God Hate Satan?

Railing Against the Devil: What does the Bible Say?

IS SATAN AN INVENTION OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH?

That’s easy enough to disprove.

The Christian Church came into being after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ approximately 27-33 AD.

The Book of Job, agreed by scholars to have been written at least 600–and perhaps as much as 1500 years–before Christianity has ample references to Satan.  At least four Old Testament books refer to “Satan.”

“Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.”
Job 1:6

References to the serpent go back to Genesis 3.

“Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”
Genesis 3:1

From Lucifer to Satan

So references to Satan and the devil predate Christianity by at least 600 years and by as much as 1500 years.

Satan was not an invention of the Christian Church.

SATAN: What does the Bible Say about Satan?

SATAN: What does the Bible Say about Satan?  What does the Bible say about the minions of the devil?

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE TELL US ABOUT SATAN?

The Bible describes Satan.

Satan was created a holy angel.

“Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.”
Ezekiel 28:15

Satan is a tempter and a deceiver. [Luke 4:1-13 and 2 Corinthians 4:4]

Satan has power. [Revelation 13:4, 13]

Satan is a prince of this present world.

“Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.”
John 12:31

Many people have a lot of questions about Satan because for years,  pop culture and the media has distorted who and what the devil really is.

Is Satan in Hell?

Who is Satan?

Satan goes by many names.  The Bible lists many of these names.

The devil.  Beelzebub (Lord of the Flies). The serpent. The prince and power of the air. The dragon. The prince of this world.  There’s many more.

What are the names of Satan?

Bob Dylan, in an interview on 60 Minutes, referred to Satan as the “Chief commander on this earth and the world we can’t see.”

What does the Bible say about demons?

Satan was defeated at the cross by the atoning blood of Jesus Christ.

All who trust on Jesus Christ as their savior;–as their sole way into heaven–are promised victory over Satan, his wiles and traps and his minions.

SUMMARY: Satan is real and he hates humanity–with a passion.  He’s goes by many names and is a deceiver and a tempter.  Satan is powerful.

However, he has already been defeated.

All those who profess Jesus as Lord can walk in the victory obtained by Jesus Christ over Satan at the cross  and have all assurance of that victory in their own life.

We are all sinners abiding under the wrath of an all-powerful and righteous judge.  The Bible says “None are good.”  But because God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth to die for our sins, believers can escape the wrath of God.

Eternal Salvation Through Jesus Christ: Salvation Messages from End Times Prophecy Report

The Bible tells us what ultimately happens to Satan.

And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”
Revelation 20:10

[Much of this piece originally appeared in End Times Prophecy Headlines: March 21, 2014.]

“But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”
John 20:31

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

Railing Against the Devil: What does the Bible Say?

RAILING AGAINST THE DEVIL: Scripture says Don't do it.

RAILING AGAINST THE DEVIL: Scripture says Don’t Do It.

RAILING AGAINST THE DEVIL: IS IT BIBLICAL?

Are believers to bring “railing accusations” against the devil?

Surprisingly perhaps, the Bible says, “No.”

Everyone wants to bash the satanic–even those who do not believe in Satan–but Christians are warned not to do this.  Some commentators use such actions as examples of human pride and hubris.

Still, that hasn’t prevented our present ungodly generation from doing what the Bible says not to do.  Believers are not to act like the enemy.

But it’s a hard rule for those eaten up by pride: people loves to talk the big talk.

(VIDEO) Stomp on the Devil’s Head

Devil Stomping Prayer

Time for some good ol’ fashioned devil-stomping!

2 Peter and Jude both warn Christians of railing against that which humans “know not”–including the devil.  Jude is especially clear on this point, going so far as to give a very clear example for the Christian to follow in this regard.

Guido Reni's archangel Michael (in the Capuchi...

Guido Reni’s archangel Michael (in the Capuchin church of Santa Maria della Concezione, Rome) tramples Satan (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

“Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.”
Jude 1:9-10

2 Peter 2:11 concurs that even angels don’t bring “railing accusations” against Satan.  If Michael the archangel didn’t dare to do this, then humans should not either.

Here’s what a few of the commentaries have to say on the subject of Jude 1:9.

According to Adam Clarke’s  (1760 or 1762–1832) Commentary:

Durst not bring against him a railing accusation]  It was a Jewish maxim, as may be seen in Synopsis Sohar, page 92, note 6: “It is not lawful for man to prefer ignominious reproaches, even against wicked spirits.”  See Schoettgen. “

Jamieson-Fauccett-Brown Commentary

railing accusation–Greek, “judgment of blasphemy,” or evil-speaking. Peter said, Angels do not, in order to avenge themselves, rail at dignities, though ungodly, when they have to contend with them: Jude says that the archangel Michael himself did not rail even at the time when he fought with the devil, the prince of evil spirits–not from fear of him, but from reverence of God, whose delegated power in this world Satan once had, and even in some degree still has. From the word “disputed,” or debated in controversy, it is plain it was a judicial contest.

On the subject of 2 Peter 2:11, Adam Clarke’s Commentary:

This is a difficult verse, but the meaning seems to be this: The holy angels, who are represented as bringing an account of the actions of the fallen angels before the Lord in judgment, simply state the facts without exaggeration, and without permitting any thing of a bitter, reviling, or railing spirit, to enter into their accusations.

Even the LORD himself–who cast Lucifer (as the devil was known then) from heaven and will ultimately cast Satan into the lake of fire–has only offered Satan as much as a rebuke (that we know of [Zechariah 3:2]).

Satan: Humans have an enemy; Christians too

Romans 16:20 assures us that “the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly.” But it is God who bruises Satan; it’s not humans or the Church or the works of man.  And yes, Luke 10:19 tells us that Jesus gives us power to “trample on serpents and scorpions and all the power of the enemy”  But Luke 10:20 cautions believers not to rejoice in this, but to rejoice that their “names are written in heaven.

Many humans today exceed what it is written for even angels to do.

Demons Exorcised: Polish Exorcisms Available For Internet Addicts

2013: POLISH EXORCISMS STILL IN THE NEWS

Exorcisms are on the rise in Poland and across Europe with more trained priests ready to battle the Devil, evil, and the requisite demons who accompany them. We decided to look into the Ritual of Exorcism and the steps taken to perform one.

According to a story in the Boston Globe there’s been a resurgence in exorcisms performed by Catholic priests and other exorcist trained laymen. Courses are being taught in a Catholic university in Rome in exorcisms and the Church, in 1999, formally “revised and upheld the ritual for the first time in almost 400 years.”

According to the Church, evil is on an upswing with people’s lax attitudes about attending Mass and exposure to “doors of evil” such as New Age therapies, alternative religions, internet junkies and yoga enthusiasts.

Plans are under way in Poland to build the area’s only ExorcismsRus center:

The Rev. Andrzej Trojanowski, a soft-spoken Pole, plans to build a “spiritual oasis” that will serve as Europe’s only center dedicated to performing exorcisms. With the blessing of the local Catholic archbishop and theological support from the Vatican, the center will aid a growing number of Poles possessed by evil forces or the devil himself, he said.

The website, St. Michael, has some tips on whether one is actually possessed by demons and what to avoid in order to stay away from potential demon-infested activities:

  • The Ouija board is a popular occult board game and there is also Dungeons and Dragons. Satan’s main target in Dungeons and Dragons game is our youth. With Dungeons and Dragons, the most powerful and successful players are those who use magic. There is a Dungeons Master Guide that even teaches new beginners how to communicate with the dead, cast spells, and learn to chant.
  • The use of magic revolves around evil spirits, psychic abilities and contacting spirits. Magic is a power that does not involve God. It is a power that is derived from such things as voodoo, sorcery, primitive religions and Satanism. Most witches who use magic swear that they do not worship Satan but worship the gods and goddesses of nature (The gods and goddesses of nature are hardly Jesus Christ! Of course they worship Satan! Do not let someone who practices this occult tell you otherwise!). Many of these individuals are unknown because they blend in quite well. They can be found attending church services in every denomination and they practice their magic on the side. If someone tells you white magic is ok–don’t believe them!!
  • Use of new age tools such as crystals, divination, astrology, tarot cards, crystal balls, reincarnation, pendulums, Yoga, Transcendental Meditation
  • Those who make a pact with Satan or attend Satanic services or rituals.
  • Going to Séances, fortune tellers, Horoscopes, or spiritualist meetings for the purpose of contact the dead.
  • Those who use alcohol or mind changing drugs such as LSD, cocaine, marijuana
  • Sex out of wedlock, active homosexuals, masturbation, adultery
  • Those who have an abortion
  • Those who try to commit suicidal or have suicidal tendencies.

There are also ways the “innocent” can be victimized by evil:

In some cases, evil spirits enter an innocent victim. The victim may be an unborn baby who is cursed from the mother’s womb. The curse can be from a jealous relative, friend, enemy, or even the child’s own parents.

Innocent victims may also include children who are not loved, who are mistreated or abused or rejection by other children, siblings, parents, etc. The abuse can range from sexual abuse, mental abuse, or physical abuse.

There are standard rules and procedures when performing an exorcism such as the priest wearing an alb and purple stole before he begins the prayer. He will make the sign of the cross over the demon possessed and then wrap one end of the stole around the victim’s neck:

One may have two normal sized stoles sewn together in order to have a very long stole to extend from the priest to the victim’s neck. It is truly amazing how the blessed stole calms and controls the possessed person. Certainly one initially may encounter violent reactions, but that is to be expected. The stole not only symbolizes, but demonstrates the power of the priesthood. Jesus binds the evil spirits with the use of this sacramental.

The priest is instructed to place his right hand on the devil inflicted’s head and a Bible must be close by for “questioning and commanding the demons to respond.”

One wonders what type of rapport the priest finds when conversing with the demons who possess the poor victim? Are some demons better spoken, have a higher intellect than others?

The Bible comes in handy as some poor souls point out to the priest the “avenue” with which evil was able to enter them:

After invoking the Holy Spirit, there is surprising response and confirmation, which are keys to opening up and freeing the person. For example, a woman who had been a war orphan revealed through scripture that she was not baptized. Another woman opened the Bible to Tobias where it stated that she was not married in the church. A couple opened the Bible to the Old testament reading on abortion, which confirmed, at some point to unforgiven sin. Others opened to a passage focusing on a generational curse. While still others read a verse on incest in the family. One girl indicated the story of Jacob and Essau. Her twin brother was murdered at three months of age. She was the second to be born and like Jacob became the first through infanticide. Others have indicated a need for greater humility, faith and fasting. The Rite of Exorcism uses passages from Jn. 1:1-14; Mk. 16:15-18; Lk. 1:17-20; Lk. Source – St. Michael


Relics must be on hand, those are the rules. The “relics” must be “first class,” those of a saint. Handkerchiefs touched by St. Paul, the “shadow” of St. Peter, or the Blessed Sacrament of Jesus.

Medals also come in handy. The medal of St. Benedict is known for warding of evil spirits along with the scapular of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel and the Rosary.

The Rosary

The blessing of the rosary states, “Nos eriperes de potestate diaboli” Our Lord Jesus Christ through His life, death and resurrection has “snatched us from the power of the devil.” Abundant graces are granted through proper recitation of the rosary, “Ab omni hoste visibili et invisibili et ubíque in hoc sáeculo liberetur” (from every enemy both visible and invisible and everywhere in this lifetime be freed). St. Dominic freed a heretic from 15,000 devils, when the man had blasphemed the Blessed Mother and the Rosary. St. Dominic preached on the fifteen mysteries of the rosary and asked the faithful to pray and meditate. For every mystery, 1,000 demons left him in the form of burning coals until he was delivered. The rosary is the chain that Our Lady uses to bind Satan. It is often seen in a possessed individual, that the demon is irritated and they complain that the rosary burns them and they often destroy the rosary. Source – St. Michael

The Crucifix is essential, “symbolic of the defeat of Satan through the death of Christ.”

The long prayer for Solemn Blessing of the Crucifix, “Ut quóties triúmphum divínae humnilitátis, quae supérbiam nostri hostis dejecit” and (how often the divine humility has triumphed casting out the pride of our enemy). “Dignáre respícere, bene + dícere et Sancti + ficáre hanc creaturm incensi, ut omnes languores, omnesque imfirmitates, atque insidiar inimici, odorem ejus sentientes, efffugiant, et separatur a plasmate tuo; ut num quam lædatur amorsu antiqui serpentes” (Deign to care for bless and sanctify those being inflamed by passion and weakness, any sickness, deceits of the foe and suspicious resentments felt by them. Be cast out and driven away from your creature) and “Numquam lædatur a morsu antiqui derpentis” (Never to be hurt by the bite of the ancient serpent). Source – St. Michael

Guidelines have been established as to who can perform an exorcism. Priests must have explicit permission from higher-ups, the priest must be pious, prudent and have personal integrity.

The priest must be versed in all the tricks and shenanigans pulled by the evil entity.

The priest must be aware that “certain species” of the Devil cannot be overthrown unless faced with “prayer and fasting.”

During the exorcism no ad-libbing by the priest. Only the words of the Bible must be used. The priest must also command the evil dweller to state just how he entered the host.

The priest must be humble and rely only on God for direction. The priest must remember that evil spirits may lie and not tell the truth. The priest must refrain from asking the demon any questions outside the reference of the Bible and exorcism, such as “what does your mother think about you being a demon?” or “just when did you “go evil?”

In summary, according to St. Michael, it is only through prayer, fasting, and humility on the part of the priest and the willingness of the victim to get rid of their demons can an exorcism be successful.

We wondered if those who became possessed through the internet, if the computer used could be also be considered a “vessel of evil” and therefore, should be destroyed?

There you have it, evil is on the rise throughout the world and the Church is responding by recognizing its centuries old, but still effective manner of ridding poor infected souls of the devil and his minions, exorcism.

Unfortunately for Americans, with a lifestyle that just begs evil to enter their souls, there’s an acute shortage of qualified, highly trained exorcism specialists on hand, and since you are reading this with the help of the internet, you too, might just be in the same boat as us, possessed by evil.

If one can afford it, place yourself on the Polish Exorcist Center’s waiting list, where an exorcism is just a passport and plane ticket away.

Demon Possession: Alfio Anthony Granata Claims Demon Possession Made Him Do it

DEMONS: Alfio Anthony Granata claims he was possessed by devil when he held tourist hostage

DEMONS: Alfio Anthony Granata claims he was possessed by devil when he held tourist hostage. He won’t be believed because psychiatrists and psychologists have done their work well. [image credit: Wikipedia]

Australian man holds and torments tourist,

Then claims he was possessed by a demon

Alfio Anthony Granata claims he was possessed by devil when he held tourist hostage

An Australian man held a Dutch tourist hostage and when captured, claimed the devil made him do it.

Actually, the man, Alfio, Anthony Granato, claimed he was possessed by the devil and told his victim she was “marked for death”.

Granato held the young woman hostage and tortured her for six weeks.

Demon possession: What is known?

Medieval book illustration of Christ Exorcisin...

The Bible has much to say about demons and their interaction with Jesus Christ. The gospel of Matthew alone has 11 different instances in which Jesus interacted with a human that had a “devil,” “demon” or “evil spirit.” [Matt 4:23-25, Matt 7:21-23, Matt 8:14-17, Matt 8:28-34, Matt 9:32-34, Matt 10:1-8, Matt 11:16-19, Matt 12:22-32, Matt 12:43-45, Matt 15:21-28, Matt 17:14-21]

Of all of the miracles performed by Jesus Christ, all but one had been previously done before in the Old Testament. That one new miracle which Jesus performed was the casting out of demons. There is no record of anyone in the Old Testament performing this miracle.

In fact, the Bible says that “casting out devils” was part of Jesus last commands to his disciples.

“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”
–Mark 16:15-18

Christianity acknowledges the existence of demons and evil spirits–as do many other religions.

Medicine and psychology have still other things to say about demons.

“Demonic possession is not recognized as a psychiatric or medical diagnosis by the DSM-IV or the ICD-10.”

Back to Granato, he allegedly told his victim that he had “killed 248 people but had never been caught because he was “very clean and precise”.”

There’s more–much more–to say on this subject. This is the first in a series on the subject of Demons: What does the Bible have to say?

Was Alfio Anthony Granata possessed by a demon? Is this just his cover story or excuse?

What do you think?

Do you know Jesus?

Satan: Humans Have An Enemy; Christians Too

SATAN

Devil, Serpent, Dragon, God of this world, Prince of the power of the Air, Accuser, Adversary, Angel of Light, Enemy, Abaddon, Apollyon and many more in the Bible.
Names of Satan

Gustave Doré, Depiction of Satan, the antagoni...
Gustave Doré, Depiction of Satan, the antagonist of John Milton’s Paradise Lost c. 1866 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

SATAN: Murderer, Liar, Killer, Thief, Destroyer

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. 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

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
–John 10:10

Christians have an enemy. Actually, all humanity has an enemy.

In John 8:44, Jesus called Satan “the devil.” In John 10:10, Jesus called him “the thief.”  Satan goes by many names.

“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
–Revelation 12:9

Christians know him by the name of Satan–which is Hebrew for “adversary or the opponent”–and he has many tricks, traps and snares to entangle humans in the cares and pleasures of this present world.

“Casual Christian”  is just another way of saying “someone ensnared by the world.”  And Satan, the one doing the ensnaring,  is called the “prince of this world” or the “god of this world.”

“Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.”
–John 12:31

“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”
–2 Corinthians 4:4

But many Christians don’t really believe in Satan–just as they don’t really believe in hell. And once Christians start down the path of unbelief, it soon leads to the wide road of destruction.

” Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:”
–Matthew 7:13

From You may never look at movies the same again.

The majority of these men called themselves “Christians” even as they walked about in disastrous situations, but I think even the casual observer would have a hard time distinguishing between the casual “christian” and the world.

Many of us (I know of a few), much like those in AA, came to a point where we decided that what we were doing was not working, and that we had unsuccessfully tried to wrestle control away from God, deciding that we and the broken world around us knew better about how to handle the devastation around us. Most do not even realize that they are in a spiritual battle for their very lives because religion succumbed to outside pressure and sanitized what we have been taught, avoiding the idea that there is an enemy (his name is Satan), and that he is out to kill you. In a sense we had to take a realistic, moral inventory, give the control back to God, come to an understanding that we are in a 24/7 spiritual battle, and realize that our only hope is on our knees before God in prayer fighting for our minds, our families and those around us.

Here is the problem that many modern Christians–particularly American Christians–face. Especially, casual Christians.

If you don’t know you have an enemy, you can’t defend yourself. And make no mistake about it, Satan is humanity’s enemy.

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”
–1 Peter 5:8

Again: if you have your head in the ground and don’t see an enemy, you can’t defend yourself. It’s hard to find a solution if you are unaware you have a problem.

SATAN, SIN: THE PROBLEM.  WHAT’S THE SOLUTION?

Satan is the enemy.  Sin is the problem.  What’s the solution?

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”–John 8:12

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”–John 14:6

“And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.”–John 6:35

“But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”–John 20:31

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” –Romans 6:23

Satan exists. Satan is real. Satan hates you and every other human. He wants to drag you to hell. Hell was not created for humans, but unfortunately, it is where many humans will be condemned to spend eternity.

“Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:”
–Matthew 25:41

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Fight back against satanic disinformation.

Believe on Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

Do You Know if You are Going to Heaven?  Be Sure!

Satan may be the god of this world, but through Jesus, believers have victory over the world and the snares of Satan!

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
–John 16:33

Don’t be deceived: Satan would love to drag you along with him into destruction. Satan is very real.

“The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he doesn’t exist.”
Charles Baudliaere

Not saved?

The gospel of Christ has the power to save!

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
Romans 1:16

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
1 Corinthians 15:1-4 – (h/t:B)

Watchmen on the Walls

"Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:
If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;"

watchman-wall-pd "Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

--Ezekiel 33:1-6

More important than pomp, popularity, riches or recognition: we will be guilty of no man's blood upon our hands.
