Answer—Satan

Click-II Corinthians 2:11 gives a great warning concerning Satan and his plans against us. It says, “so that we would not be outwitted by Satan; for we are not ignorant of his designs.”

We cannot blame him for all evil, for often we are the guilty ones, but all evil can be traced back to him. He is the one that initiates, promotes it and seeks to lead people into it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Satan is the most powerful opposer to God. He was designed and created by Him, one of His most, if not the most, beautiful created beings. He is an angel and was given great power and authority by God, He was the ruler over the powers of the air, but he got proud and turned against God.

This is what God says about him.

 

Click-Ezekiel 28:12-19—“Son of man, raise a lamentation over the king of Tyre, and say to him, Thus says the Lord God: “You were the signet of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering, sardius, topaz, and diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, emerald, and carbuncle; and crafted in gold were your settings and your engravings. On the day that you were created, they were prepared. You were an anointed guardian cherub. I placed you; you were on the holy mountain of God; in the midst of the stones of fire you walked. You were

 

blameless in your ways from the day you were created, till unrighteousness was found in you. In the abundance of your trade you were filled with violence in your midst, and you sinned; so I cast you as a profane thing from the mountain of God, and I destroyed you, O guardian cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.”

 

There are only three instances where Satan is presented in person during the history of the ages. He always works behind the scenes and has his army of demons doing his work continuously, and he is described as coming before God and going back and forth on this earth, but in person, or working directly he is only revealed three times. These times are very important in understanding him.

 

Click-I Peter 5:8—"Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

This first time. He came to Adam and Eve to tempt them, and convince them to disobey God. He defeated the human race through them at that time. Likewise, he gained power over people, not fully, but great influence, and he robbed them of distinguishing between truth and deception, right and wrong according to God and His ways. Through the sin of Adam and Eve, he was able to trap the souls of mankind. He won the ballot that day.

 

The second time. He faced Jesus Christ, and used the same tactics he used with Adam and Eve, but Jesus being God in the form of a man and knowing the Word of God perfectly used it to oppose and resist completely him that day. Jesus left that even victorious. What he used to overcome Adam and Eve, and thereby the entire human race, did not work on Jesus. He did not lose his power over humanity at that time, but all his tactics were now in question, and he had been exposed. He had been put in his place.

 

Likewise, he was fully declared defeated when Jesus came forth out of the grave. Death was his grip, but now that grip was gone.

The third time. He is condemned forever. He gets his last shot to bring the human race over to his side. Not only that, but he gets a chance to deceive the nations for a little time, and then God takes him and cast him into the lake of fire, where he spends his eternity in punishment for all he has done.

 

Click-Revelation 20:10 and the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He wants God’s place. He knows no one is higher, no one is greater than God, and he turned against God and started opposing him by trying to destroy Him and all that He does, simply to seek to take that place. Furthermore, he wants to be God.

He said, “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.” Click-Isaiah 14:14

 

  • By enticing

Click-I Chronicles 21:1 Then Satan stood against Israel and incited David to number Israel.

He cannot sin for us, but he will do all he can to seek to entice us to do it, just like he did with Adam and Eve.

  • By accusing

He is often called “The Accuser” in the Scriptures. That is what his tittle means.

Click-Zechariah 3:1—"Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to accuse him.

2—"And the LORD said to Satan, “The LORD rebuke you, O Satan! The LORD, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this a brand plucked from the fire?”

He does not want people to confess their own guilt, but he always accuses them before God for things that are not their fault, and he seeks to get people to believe they are guilty of things they are not. Making them feel useless and condemned.

  • By tempting

Click-Mark 1:13 And he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. And he was with the wild animals, and the angels were ministering to him.

He uses all the flashiness and desirable thing of the world including position, popularity and such like to temp people into sin.

  • By deceiving

Click-Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

  • By stealing, killing and destroying

Click-John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

 

What does he use?

  • He Uses People

Click-Matthew 16:23—"But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me. For you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man.”

He used Peter to oppose Jesus. It seemed reasonable, for Peter was thinking he was just being reasonable and supportive of Jesus, but he was being used by Satan to oppose Him.

  • He uses demons

He is sometimes called “Beelzebu” the prince of demons. Likewise, he has an army of demons that he uses to oppose God and destroy people.

  • The world

He is called “The god of this world”

Click-II Corinthians 4:3

4—"In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

He has to get permission from God to do his damaging work. This is described in Job chapters 1 and 2.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Faith

Satan wants to destroy all people, simply because they are God’s creation. God is the one that he opposes, but he is especially focused on destroying believers. People who are born again by the Holy Spirit of god according to the Word of God, but they are the ones that can resist him in the faith. 

Click-I Peter 5:6-9

When Jesus faced Satan, He resisted him by God’s Word.

Click-Matthew 4:1-11
