Satan

Whom Exactly is this Angel?
 

 


Throughout the years that I have been trying to walk with JESUS, the topic of writing an article about satan has never even crossed my mind. I never even considered it!


But something happened recently. About 8 weeks ago, I had multiple conversations with Christian Men and Women which turned to the topic of satan. There seems to be a lot of MIS conceptions out there when it comes to this evil angel. Each person shared with me things that they believed were true about satan, which I felt were mere human traditions and human assumptions. I realized then, that many in the church body are actually believing a lot of the folk lore about satan that has been passed down through the tainted traditions of men.


It was then that I decided I would do a detailed study on this evil angel and turn this study into a short article to bless my brother's and sister's in CHRIST.
 

I am going to use bible scriptures only, so we can find out exactly what GOD says about this angel who fell into darkness!


I pray this study on satan will bless you greatly, and that it will help you in whichever ways possible to draw closer to JESUS and the Holy Bible.


Lets find out together right now in this article if any of the following are actually true about satan or NOT!! Was satan ever leading worship in heaven? Is satan and the holy angels actually millions of years old? Can satan do pretty much whatever he wants here on earth? Is satan actually the leader of the evil angels? Is satan the cause of medical problems inside of our bodies? When did satan fall? PLUS MUCH, MUCH MORE..................................


Sincerely, Garrett.



IMPORTANT NOTES:

Scriptures are taken from the American Standard Version (ASV) of the Holy Bible because of its faithfulness to the ancient manuscripts and Bible Numerics.



I am going to be using the American Standard Version bible for all important scriptures during our study of satan. Ivan Panin who discovered (bible numerics) has stated that the ASV bible is the closest thing to GOD'S perfect word that we can read besides a Numeric New Testament Bible. So we will be using the ASV bible for all scriptures that have detailed information about satan, or his character, or attributes about him, or anything else where we want a really good definition of what the bible is actually suppose to say.


Now – For all scriptures that speak about satan in a general term, I will use the New Living Translation.


The New Living Translation is the easiest bible version for the average Christian to understand who reads this article. Especially for Christian people who live outside of the USA.




GOD has many names, so it is no big surprise that there are a few different names for satan too.


Here are most of the names that I found for satan in the bible. If I missed any, please simply contact me using the contact button on my website and I will be glad to update this article, praise GOD!!!!


Likewise, if you see any blatant mistakes which can be proven a mistake using Holy Scriptures, and not an opinion, please contact me and notify me right away, so I can make the correct changes where needed.




Here are most of the names used for this powerful Cherubim angel.



  1. Lucifer. The name (Lucifer) is NEVER mentioned once in the ASV bible. It is not mentioned in any other bible either except the KJV and the NKJV at Isaiah 14:12.


  1. The Devil. The name (The Devil) is used approximately 31 times in the ASV bible always being used in the New Testament only. The name – The Devil - is NEVER used in the Old Testament.


  1. The Serpent. The name (The Serpent) is used approximately 10 times in the ASV bible.


  1. The Accuser. The name (The Accuser) is used only 1 time in the ASV bible.


  1. The Anointed Cherub. This name is used only 1 time in the ASV bible.


  1. The Adversary. The name (The Adversary) is possibly used 3 times in the ASV bible.


  1. The Thief. The name (The Thief) is mentioned 1-2 times approximately in the ASV bible.


  1. Prince of this World. (Ruler of this World). This name is mentioned 4 times in the ASV bible.


  1. The Evil One. The name (The Evil One) is mentioned approximately 12 times in the ASV bible.


  1. The Dragon. This name is used approximately 9 times in the ASV bible.


I have used the word approximately in the above titles of names for satan because some of the scriptures can have multiple meanings. Out of my fear for GOD, I say approximately so as to be extra careful not to misquote any actual numbers.

Finally we get to the name Satan.


The name (Satan) is used 47 times in the ASV bible to describe this evil cherubim angel.





The name (Lucifer) is mentioned only one time in the KJV and the NKJV located in - Isaiah 14:12 – In all of the other bible versions that I checked including the ASV, there is NOT a single mention of the name Lucifer, not one! So I do not use this name when speaking about this evil angel.


The word Lucifer means - (Light bearer). Myself being a follower of THE CHRIST, the true LIGHT, would never call this evil angel a light bearer.


Here is the scripture from the KJV.

Isaiah 14:12 - How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!

 

Here is the ASV version of the exact same scripture.


Isaiah 14:12 - 12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O day-star, son of the morning!


The Devil – The name The Devil CANNOT be found in the Old Testament period. I checked bible version after bible version and nobody uses the name (The Devil) for satan in the Old Testament.



The name (The Devil) can be found all over the New Testament though for a direct name of satan.



The name The Devil is also used quite often in the New Testament to describe a demon or demons.






 

Now let us start our detailed study.

 


When was satan and the angels created in the first place? I myself use to think that the angels must be millions of years old until I started to study a little more. There are scriptures that tell us approximately how old the angels are. Here is one of them.


Exodus 20:11 - 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens, the earth, the sea, and everything in them; but on the seventh day he rested.


As we can see, GOD through JESUS created the creation and finished it on the 6th day. This tells us that everything in the creation is approximately 6,000 years old at this time. That means the dinosaurs, angels, the earth, the planets and the rest of the galaxies and even our universe are very, VERY NEW!!!! The entire creation according to GOD'S Holy Word is about 6,000 years old.



Genesis 3:1-2 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which Jehovah God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of any tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, Of the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat:




Genesis 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:


    *
    We can see here that at the very beginning satan is lying to Eve. It is also obvious just how subtle he can be too.




Genesis 3:13 And Jehovah God said unto the woman, What is this thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.


    *
    The word beguiled above means to be deceived with guile. Even in the very beginning in the Garden of Eden, satan is already deceiving Eve with deceptions, guile and outright lies.

    Many people feel that satan actually fell from the grace of GOD much later, but as we can clearly see here, he is already the deceiver and he is going against GOD'S Creation here. Surely he must be a fallen being at this time in the Garden of Eden as he deceives Eve.




Exodus 12:23 For Jehovah will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side-posts, Jehovah will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.


*The Destroyer here could very well be satan. As we can see, GOD has the destroyer on his leash and can use him any way he wants to just like a dumb farm animal. We know that satan comes to steal, kill and destroy!




Job 1:6 Now it came to pass on the day when the sons of God came to present themselves before Jehovah, that Satan also came among them.


*We can see here that satan can go into the presence of GOD at the time of the book of Job. Job lived during or close to the time of Jacob.




Job 1:8 And Jehovah said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job? for there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and turneth away from evil.


*We can see above that GOD is the one who pointed out Job to satan first.




Job 1:9 Then Satan answered Jehovah, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?



Job 1:12 And Jehovah said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thy hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of Jehovah.


    *We can see in the above scripture that GOD makes the rules and satan must follow them. GOD told satan what he can do to Job, and what he CANNOT do. Satan did not dare argue with GOD.



Job 2:1 Again it came to pass on the day when the sons of God came to present themselves before Jehovah, that Satan came also among them to present himself before Jehovah.



Job 2:2 And Jehovah said unto Satan, From whence comest thou? And Satan answered Jehovah, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.



Job 2:3 And Jehovah said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job? for there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and turneth away from evil: and he still holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.


    *It looks to me up above that GOD is actually using psychology on satan when he says thou movest me agaist him to destroy him without cause. That is very interesting.




Job 2:4 And Satan answered Jehovah, and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life.




Job 2:6 And Jehovah said unto Satan, Behold, he is in thy hand; only spare his life.


    *Again we see above that GOD makes all of the rules, and if GOD is for us, who could ever possibly be against us!




Job 2:7 So Satan went forth from the presence of Jehovah, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown.


*We notice above that satan and the demons can and do bring our medical problems upon us.



Zechariah 3:1 And he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of Jehovah, and Satan standing at his right hand to be his adversary.


    *Satan is our adversary even in Heaven speaking against us. This should cause us to be very afraid to sin!!!




Isaiah 14:12 - How art thou fallen from heaven, O day-star, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, that didst lay low the nations! 13 And thou saidst in thy heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; and I will sit upon the mount of congregation, in the uttermost parts of the north;



*I use to believe that satan wanted to exalt himself above his fellow angels, but after further study, I now believe that the stars mentioned up above are most likely GOD's chosen people the Christian's.


Satan works very hard day and night, using his demonic forces to corrupt the spiritual walks of Christian men and women world wide, and by doing this, he is exalting himself above us. Or, we are exalting satan above ourselves when we choose to sin and do other types of evil. We Christian men and women are changed from STAR glory to moon glory to sun glory! - AKA – SON Glory.

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.



*Our LORD JESUS has told us that if we humble ourselves, we will be exalted. This seems to be the exact opposite of what satan was trying to do. When I think of JESUS, one thing that really stands out is, how humble JESUS was. It seems like satan was the exact opposite of the LORD even from the beginning.




15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to Sheol, to the uttermost parts of the pit.



16 They that see thee shall gaze at thee, they shall consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;



*Satan does not run hell, but it says he will be brought down to hell and that the people will stare at him and wonder is this he the one who caused the earth to tremble?




17 that made the world as a wilderness, and overthrew the cities thereof; that let not loose his prisoners to their home?




 



Isaiah 24:16 – I have created the Waster to destroy!


*I personally feel that the Waster here is most likely satan. We can see that GOD has created satan to do exactly what satan does best.





Ezekial 28: ASV Bible



13 Thou wast in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, the topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was in thee; in the day that thou wast created they were prepared.



*Here is satan before his fall from GOD in the Garden of Eden. From this description, can we even imagine how beautiful he was before his fall?




14 Thou wast the anointed cherub that covereth: and I set thee, so that thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.



*We also can see that satan is definitely a Cherubim class angel that GOD ordained and anointed. I talked to an Elder of mine about that word (Covereth) and he believes that satan was guarding someone or something because that sentence can be translated guardian Cherubim. Many people here feel that satan is actually covering GOD but if you read it carefully, he is in the Garden of Eden here. Also, does GOD need guarding? That same Elder of mine thought that maybe satan was guarding Adam and Eve possibly or even the creation on earth.




15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till unrighteousness was found in thee.



*Wow, GOD says satan was perfect at first. That is quite amazing if we really sit down and think about this. GOD created a perfect, beautiful and very powerful Guardian Cherubim here.

Later we will see a few scriptures where the bible says that satan was a liar and murderer from the very beginning.

I feel that although satan was created perfect and beautiful, unrighteousness was found in him very quickly.




16 By the abundance of thy traffic they filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore have I cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God; and I have destroyed thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.



*GOD finds sin in satans heart here and he is cast out from the midst of the stones of fire.




17 Thy heart was lifted up because of thy beauty; thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I have cast thee to the ground; I have laid thee before kings, that they may behold thee.



*This happens to Christian people all the time. Pride was found in satan because of how beautiful he was and his wisdom was corrupted! Pride can easily enter us men and women of GOD too when we preach good, write great articles, create wonderful Christian music and on and on and on.............. We have to be very careful at all times to always realize that everything we do is from and because of the GRACE of GOD.............. This way no man can ever boast!!!




18 By the multitude of thine iniquities, in the unrighteousness of thy traffic, thou hast profaned thy sanctuaries; therefore have I brought forth a fire from the midst of thee; it hath devoured thee, and I have turned thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.



*Here GOD points out that satan has many sins now.




19 All they that know thee among the peoples shall be astonished at thee: thou art become a terror, and thou shalt nevermore have any being.





Now we find ourselves in this study of satan arriving at the New Testament.




Matthew 4:10 “Get out of here, Satan,” Jesus told him. “For the Scriptures say,‘You must worship the Lord your God and serve only him.’ ”



*Here JESUS points out to us that we can command satan to leave us, likewise we can answer him with bible scriptures too. I do not talk to demons, but I command them in the name of JESUS.




Matthew 4:11 Then the devil went away, and angels came and took care of Jesus.



*If you resist the devil, he will flee from you!




Matthew 6:13 And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one.



*The LORD'S prayer. Let us ask GOD to lead us away from the evil temptations and to rescue us from the snares and traps of satan.




Matthew 12:24 But when the Pharisees heard about the miracle, they said, “No wonder he can cast out demons. He gets his power from Satan, the prince of demons.”



*Satan is called the Prince of demons here acknowledging the fact that he is the leader of the demonic forces.




Matthew 16:23 Jesus turned to Peter and said, “Get away from me, Satan! You are a dangerous trap to me. You are seeing things merely from a human point of view, not from God’s.”



*JESUS points out here that YES we Christian men and women can have the demons living inside of us. Rarely, and I say rarely do I meet Christian men and women who do NOT have a demon or demons living with them. The demons cannot possess our spirit, but they can live with our soul and fluctuate in and out of our body.




Matthew 25:41 “Then the King will turn to those on the left and say, ‘Away with you, you cursed ones, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his demons.



*The Lake of Fire was actually created for satan and his demonic angels.




Mark 1:13 where he was tempted by Satan for forty days. He was out among the wild animals, and angels took care of him.



*Satan does tempt us.




Mark 3:26 And if Satan is divided and fights against himself, how can he stand? He would never survive.



*JESUS points out to us that satans kingdom does NOT fight against itself.




Luke 4:2 where he was tempted by the devil for forty days. Jesus ate nothing all that time and became very hungry.



*If GOD allows, satan can tempt us day after day after day.




Luke 4:13 When the devil had finished tempting Jesus, he left him until the next opportunity came.



*Satan is looking for another opportunity to enter us and destroy us constantly.




Luke 8:12 The seeds that fell on the footpath represent those who hear the message, only to have the devil come and take it away from their hearts and prevent them from believing and being saved.



*Satan and the demons have the power to steal the seeds that you are planting in your loved ones and friends if GOD allows.




Luke 13:16 This dear woman, a daughter of Abraham, has been held in bondage by Satan for eighteen years. Isn’t it right that she be released, even on the Sabbath?”



*A woman here was sick for 18 years because of satan. Yes the bible does point out that satan is behind many if not most of our medical problems we have.




Luke 22:3 Then Satan entered into Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve disciples,



*Yes the demons do enter us, in fact, rarely do I meet Christian men and women who do not have an evil spirit in them or more!!!




Luke 22:31
[ Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial ] “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift each of you like wheat.



*Satan must ask GOD for permission to do many of the things that he would like to do to us.

Most of the time, it is our own sins and failures and UN forgiveness that gives satan permission to come against us in the first place.




John 8:44 For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies.



*JESUS says satan was a murderer from the very beginning. Beginning of what? Beginning of Creation.

Satan hates the truth and this is why we must study the bible more because the bible teaches us the truth!!!




John 10:10 The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.



*Satan is here to steal, kill and destroy! He can steal our virginity, our money and even our walk with JESUS if we are not careful. He can destroy marriages, friendships, churches and much more too. He can kill our bodies, kill our children and spouses and even pets. He can kill our spiritual desires and godly dreams, and he can even kill our own desires to walk with GOD in a close relationship. All of this is true only if GOD allows him to, or if we allow him to through our sinning, rebellion, pride, UN forgiveness and many other evil acts that we men and women of GOD sometimes find ourselves stuck in.


O PRAISE JESUS that HE runs to our rescue ALL THE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!







John 12:31 The time for judging this world has come, when Satan, the ruler of this world, will be cast out.



*For us born again believers, when JESUS died on the cross HE gave us the power to overcome satan and get sin and our sinful natures totally out of us by faith through grace.




John 14:30 - 30 “I don’t have much more time to talk to you, because the ruler of this world approaches. He has no power over me, 31 but I will do what the Father requires of me, so that the world will know that I love the Father. Come, let’s be going.


*Satan had no power whatsoever over JESUS. After all, JESUS did create him!!!!     satan was used as a vessel of dishonor to do GOD'S perfect will concerning HIS SON JESUS. Satan is called the ruler of this world because the men and women of the world have made him their ruler instead of THE CHRIST.




John 16:11 Judgment will come because the ruler of this world has already been judged.



*Satan has already been judged by GOD. I would naturally assume that includes the evil angels too.





John 17:15 I’m not asking you to take them out of the world, but to keep them safe from the evil one.



*JESUS prays for all of his children for HIS FATHER to keep them safe from satan. We should pray this way often.




Acts 5:3 Then Peter said, “Ananias, why have you let Satan fill your heart? You lied to the Holy Spirit, and you kept some of the money for yourself.



*Satan and his demons can enter our hearts, especially if we allow them to.




Acts 10:38 And you know that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. Then Jesus went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.



*JESUS heals all of the medical problems in the children of GOD that satan is causing.




Acts 26:18 to open their eyes, so they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God.



*We must be transformed from the power of satan to GOD who loves us.




1 Corinthians 5:5 Then you must throw this man out and hand him over to Satan so that his sinful nature will be destroyed and he himself will be saved on the day the Lord returns.



*Christian Apostles and Elders have the authority to hand over people to satan. Notice up above Paul is commanding the people to turn this man over to satan so that his sinful nature will be destroyed and that the mans soul CAN BE SAVED!!! satans chastening of the church body ACTUALLY LEADS us to repentance, forgiveness and into the arms of CHRIST JESUS.


Rapture When? Hmmm - Please Click Here!!!




1 Corinthians 7:5
Do not deprive each other of sexual relations, unless you both agree to refrain from sexual intimacy for a limited time so you can give yourselves more completely to prayer. Afterward, you should come together again so that Satan won’t be able to tempt you because of your lack of self-control.



*Satan brings temptations to married couples who are not having physical intimacy with one another. Or, who are not having enough physical intimacy with one another. This is very dangerous! Couples tend to argue and hold animosity against each other. When that happens, the one couple who got hurt or offended many times refrains from having intimate contact with the other. That is when satan will enter the marriage and start to work towards destroying it.




2 Corinthians 2:11 so that Satan will not outsmart us. For we are familiar with his evil schemes.



*Paul states here that satan uses strategies on us. Satan and his armies are using strategies on how to destroy our walks with THE CHRIST.




2 Corinthians 4:4 Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.



*Satan is the god of this world because the people of the earth have chosen and made satan their gods. Satan and the demons have the power to blind peoples minds. I have seen this countless times, and I have also seen this in tons of Christian people to where their minds are actually blocked and blinded to what you are trying to explain to them. I also can recognize when a demon is blocking my own mind and when this happens, we must repent our sins, forgive our enemies and command these evil spirits out of us in the powerful name of JESUS. Name here in the Greek means (Nature, Character and Authority)




2 Corinthians 11:14 But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.



*It seems that satan and the demons can appear in any shape or form they want, including the so called aliens that are supposedly visiting us from other planets – Lol...................... Why do the Greys look demonic and reptilian? Hmmmmmm




2 Corinthians 12:7 even though I have received such wonderful revelations from God. So to keep me from becoming proud, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger from Satan to torment me and keep me from becoming proud.


*Paul tells us clearly here that GOD ordered a demon to come against him to keep him from becoming proud.


*Does GOD do this? Did you read about Job? Did you read about King Saul when the demon spirit tormented him? Oh yes GOD can and does........ GOD uses the demons like dumb farm animals to do his perfect will.

Lamentations 3:37 – Who can command things to happen without the LORD'S permission?




Ephesians 2:2 You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil—the commander of the powers in the unseen world. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God.



*Paul states here that satan is the commander of the evil angels. We must obey the bible, and when we do not, we can and most likely will be given over to demons. Obeying the bible is NOT an option people. Psalm 119:89 – Forever O LORD is they word settled in Heaven.




Ephesians 4:27 for anger gives a foothold to the devil.



*If we get angry, this is very, VERY dangerous for us.




Ephesians 6:11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.



*We must have on the armor of GOD or we are going to be in big, BIG trouble. The demons are using military strategies against us so as to destroy us. And the bible is their rule book. They know the bible, and they wait day and night for us to break bible rules or godly biblical principals so as to accuse us and attack us.




Ephesians 6:16 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.



*The demons try to attack us constantly!




1 Thessalonians 2:18 We wanted very much to come to you, and I, Paul, tried again and again, but Satan prevented us.



*Satan had the power here to stop Paul from traveling to certain regions. Notice I said power and NOT authority? JESUS has been given all authority and power in Heaven, on Earth and under the Earth too.

Lamentations 3:37  Who can command things to happen without the LORD'S permission?




2 Thessalonians 2:9 This man will come to do the work of Satan with counterfeit power and signs and miracles.



*Satan can and does counterfeit the signs and wonders and miracles of GOD.




2 Thessalonians 3:3 But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one.



*JESUS will strengthen us and guard us from satan.




1 Timothy 1:20 Hymenaeus and Alexander are two examples. I threw them out and handed them over to Satan so they might learn not to blaspheme God.



*Paul hands over two men to satan so they will learn not to blaspheme GOD. Yes, when we are handed over to satan he does a very, VERY good job teaching us to fear GOD and to fear sinning. By doing this, satan is actually helping us to become more and more CHRIST like. Yes, GOD uses the demons constantly for his own good will and pleasure to transform the Christian men and women into true disciples of HIS CHRIST.








1 Timothy 2:14 And it was not Adam who was deceived by Satan. The woman was deceived, and sin was the result.



*At the time of Adam and Eve in the Garden, satan had already fallen and now he is seen as The Deceiver. He is now in the form of a reptilian serpent.




1 Timothy 3:6 An elder must not be a new believer, because he might become proud, and the devil would cause him to fall.



*If we have pride, satan can cause us to fall!! Pride is something that I battle against quite often.

*Pride is very, VERY dangerous for us born again believers to have inside of our hearts!!!!




1 Timothy 3:7 Also, people outside the church must speak well of him so that he will not be disgraced and fall into the devil’s trap.



*Satan can set traps for us............ O praise JESUS who guards us and protects us.




2 Timothy 2:26 Then they will come to their senses and escape from the devil’s trap. For they have been held captive by him to do whatever he wants.



*Satan can pretty much do whatever he wants to the lost people of the world as long as GOD allows it.


Lamentations 3:37  Who can command things to happen without the LORD'S permission.

Hebrews 2:14 Because God’s children are human beings—made of flesh and blood—the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the devil, who had the power of death.



*JESUS has broken the power that satan had in our lives as long as we have faith to believe this. We must have faith and believe the promises in the bible. Faith, love, obedience and fellowship is what GOD is looking for in us.



James 4:7 So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.



*Resist sinning and temptations of all kinds, and satan will flee!!




1 Peter 5:8 Stay alert! Watch out for your enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.



*Satan through his demons are constantly watching us day and night looking for someone that they can accuse to GOD and then enter into.




1 John 2:13
I am writing to you who are mature in the faith because you know Christ, who existed from the beginning. I am writing to you who are young in the faith because you have won your battle with the evil one.



*We win our battle with satan in many ways, but one of the most important ways is through our faith in CHRIST and HIS Holy bible – The bible promises!!!!




1 John 2:14 I have written to you who are God’s children because you know the Father. I have written to you who are mature in the faith because you know Christ, who existed from the beginning. I have written to you who are young in the faith because you are strong. God’s word lives in your hearts,and you have won your battle with the evil one.


*Another way we win our battle with satan is if we truly and really have the bible living in our hearts!!




1 John 3:8 But when people keep on sinning, it shows that they belong to the devil, who has been sinning since the beginning. But the Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil.



*Satan has been sinning from the beginning. Once again, it seems like satan was perfect for only a very short amount of time. JESUS' death at the cross has broken the control that satan had over our sinful lives.




1 John 3:10 So now we can tell who are children of God and who are children of the devil. Anyone who does not live righteously and does not love other believers does not belong to God.



*Satan has children. The people of the world who live in sin, rebellion and all sorts of evil are satans children. Yes GOD has created all people, but they belong to satan now.




1 John 5:18 We know that God’s children do not make a practice of sinning, for God’s Son holds them securely, and the evil one cannot touch them.



*Thank you JESUS for holding us securely and guarding us from all of the evil spirits.




1 John 5:19 We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the control of the evil one.


*Satan is controlling the world because the world allows him to. Men and women of the world are following satan and have completely rejected THE CHRIST! Therefore, by doing this, they make satan their god.




Jude 1:9 But even Michael, one of the mightiest of the angels, did not dare accuse the devil of blasphemy, but simply said, “The Lord rebuke you!” (This took place when Michael was arguing with the devil about Moses’ body.)



*The angels and demons argue! Very interesting. Hmmm, satan was interested in Moses' body too!!!

*There is a real war going on and I completely believe we will learn all about what truly happened here on earth after we get into Heaven. Some of us are trying to study this right now and it really is fascinating.






Revelation 2:10 Don’t be afraid of what you are about to suffer. The devil will throw some of you into prison to test you. You will suffer for ten days. But if you remain faithful even when facing death, I will give you the crown of life.



*Many Christian's are in prison right now all around the world because of their faith and love in JESUS and for reading the Holy Bible. 60 percent of the world are suffering Christian persecution right now.




Revelation 12:5 She gave birth to a son who was to rule all nations with an iron rod. And her child was snatched away from the dragon and was caught up to God and to his throne.



*Here the Man-child is protected from satan. The Man-Child mentioned above is NOT JESUS. But it is JESUS living in men all over the world who will be leading the world wide church through the 7 year tribulation which is just about to start.




Revelation 12:7 Then there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon and his angels.



*Does satan and the angels war? Oh yes they do!!!!!!





Revelation 12:8 And the dragon lost the battle, and he and his angels were forced out of heaven.



*Our side wins, O PRAISE GOD!!!!! If you are reading this and you are currently living without JESUS in your heart and soul, now is the time to repent your sins and to invite the LORD to be a huge part of your life.




Revelation 12:9 This great dragon—the ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, the one deceiving the whole world—was thrown down to the earth with all his angels.



*Satan and his demonic angels are deceiving the entire world. Wow do we need to read our bibles!!!! the bible is GOD'S truth; the more we study GOD'S truth, the less someone can deceive us and lie to us.




Revelation 12:12 Therefore, rejoice, O heavens! And you who live in the heavens, rejoice! But terror will come on the earth and the sea, for the devil has come down to you in great anger, knowing that he has little time.”



*satan knows right now that he has very little time left.




Revelation 12:13 When the dragon realized that he had been thrown down to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child.



*Satan is pursuing the church of GOD here during the 7 year tribulation which is just about to start.




Revelation 12:14 But she was given two wings like those of a great eagle so she could fly to the place prepared for her in the wilderness. There she would be cared for and protected from the dragon for a time, times, and half a time.



*We Christian people will be protected from satan for the first 3 ½ years of the 7 year tribulation.




Revelation 12:17 And the dragon was angry at the woman and declared war against the rest of her children—all who keep God’s commandments and maintain their testimony for Jesus.



*Here we see satan declaring war on the holy men and women of GOD and those who belong to HIS CHRIST.




Revelation 20:2 He seized the dragon—that old serpent, who is the devil, Satan—and bound him in chains for a thousand years.



*Here we see a single angel seize satan and chain him up for 1000 years. Lol – Many people would of thought that it would of taken hundreds of angels to tie up satan, but that is not true. GOD could of tied him up even back in the Garden of Eden, but that was NOT GOD'S plan!!!!!!!!




Revelation 20:10 Then the devil, who had deceived them, was thrown into the fiery lake of burning sulfur, joining the beast and the false prophet. There they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.



*Satan is going into the Lake of Fire at the very end of the 1000 year millennium for all of eternity!






(Garrett) - When I sit back and day dream on all that GOD has created, and all that is truly happening here on earth in the spirit realm, it just totally blows me away!!!!! I doubt I even understand one percent of what is going on here in GOD'S incredible creation and even that one percent is mind-boggling to conceive and think about.


GOD has created a good side and a bad side here on earth. We have leaders for both sides and powerful armies that follow them. GOD even created a villain – satan. We have soldiers for both sides taking orders from higher rankings members whom are using strategies to accomplish their powerful goals.

And here we are, us humans, men and women stuck right in the middle of this.


There is no way that we mere men and women can even begin to conceive all that GOD has going on here on our planet earth.


And when all of that amazing stuff above was not enough, that is when GOD blew us away and sent HIS SON from Heaven to become a human being himself. To be born naked in a manger and to die naked on the cross for all of humanities terrible, disgusting and filthy sins that we commit. HIS SON never sinned, yet he freely gave his life in a terrible death for us. Can we even understand how much GOD loves us?


Surely the truth of all that is going on in GOD'S creation is far, FAR, FARRRRRR MORE AMAZING than the 100 greatest books ever written by mankind all put together into one!!!!


Did JESUS know beforehand that his perfect angel he created would turn evil? OF COURSE HE KNEW. GOD knew the end from the beginning before the creation was ever started.


Did JESUS also know that HIS perfect angel would then tempt Eve? OF COURSE HE KNEW and this was GOD'S plan to send his only begotten son JESUS to die for us on the cross. JESUS voluntarily died so that we could live!!! Oh what a show of love that truly was.


Ask JESUS to enter your life tonight and he will for he loves you much, MUCH more than mere human words could ever describe. JESUS never sinned, yet we can repent our sins to JESUS even right now and have all of our lifetime sins washed away as far as the east is from the west.


This is the good news of the Gospels in GOD'S Holy Bible. Now is the time more than ever to work on a close, personal, intimate and fiery relationship with JESUS and HIS bible. Let us NOT waste even one more day living as the world does in sin and all kinds of evil. Let us turn our hearts and souls to the LORD the very best we can each day with the grace that GOD gives us and make JESUS the LOVE OF OUR LIVES.....................................



Love, your servant Garrett
