Satan's Job

We have an enemy and he does not want us to

fulfill God’s calling in our lives.

He does everything he can to deter us from hearing

God’s voice and sharing God's Word with others.

 

 

Many in our society deny the obvious.

They have strong, confused, and conflicting ideas about Satan.

How sad it is that our society

could or would characterize Satan as some fictitious person.

Many people don't believe that the devil really exists.

 

In order to recognize Satan and his work;

before we can launch

a victorious offensive attack against Satan,

we must know our enemy.

 

 

We must know satan's characteristics,

 tactics, and strategies

so that we can take our position

of full power and authority over him.

 

 

 

 Satan is described as an opponent,

an adversary, a false accuser, 

slanderer, the arch deceiver... a master

deceiver.

Satan conceals truth and targets the mind.

 

 

 

Satan uses lies and accusations as his

weapons.

 

He wants to keep us ignorant

of God's will.

A deceiver is someone who persuades people to believe in

something that is not true.

 

Throughout the Scriptures there is one character mentioned

who is said to be the enemy of God and God's people. He

is known as Satan, Lucifer, the devil, the adversary,

the god of the world.

 

Jesus recognized that Satan has a kingdom.

His kingdom is this world.

1 John 5:19    

 

 

 

The Scriptures indicate that Satan was once

the fairest of God's creatures.

Satan was the anointed cherub.

  Ezekiel 28:14 

 

 

He became puffed up with conceit

and fell through pride.

1Timothy 3:6

 

 

 Satan pulled down a multitude

of rebellious spirits

with him.

 How you have fallen from Heaven,

O morning star, son of the dawn?

You have been cast down to the earth,

you who once laid low the nations!

Isaiah 14:12

After Satan's fall, he began his long and stubborn

warfare against God.

 

 

http://www.mtv.com/shared/promoimages/movies/d/day_the_earth_stood_still/trailer_blog/dtess_080702_5.jpg Satan hates God,
and therefore is out to destroy all humanity,
 
especially God’s children.
 
Satan seems to go after those who have God's favor.
 
He attempts to make believers as confused,
 
fearful and ignorant as possible.
 
Satan wants to misguide people from God's way.
 
He entices his subjects to do things
 
that are contrary to the will of God.

During our anger, Satan tells us,

"Go ahead get revenge."

 

 May we always remember and never forget:
 
 
 
 
All warfare is deception,
 
and Satan’s art of war is to use all means necessary
 
to confuse, weaken, and destroy
 
the consciousness of God’s people.
 

Today, Satan seems successful, as never before, in raising

up adversaries to persecute and destroy God's people.

 Satan is at the very core of the relentless evil in the world

today. Satan does not personally perform every evil deed,

but he orchestrates them all. 

 

 

 

Satan is the ruler of the demons. They are his agents.

They work together 24-7 and are good at what they do

and never miss opportunities to attack.
 

Another lie Satan attempts to tell his subjects...

God will never save a person like you.

To our youth, Satan plants these thoughts:

It's all right to drink, get drunk and do drugs; just try it...

everyone else is doing it. It won't harm you.

It will help you to make cool friends.

Go ahead and have sex before marriage;

God doesn’t care.

  He wants you to have fun.

LIES!!!

Satan doesn't want to see God's children

move in power and victory.

He and his troops are out to mislead;

and to persuade the willing soul

to believe in something that is not true.

He hurls all kinds of misleading thoughts

into the mind.

 

Satan is a liar... the author and the father of lies.

He is the dragon, a tempter. He

is crafty, subtle, rude, controlling, cunning, malicious, and

sly. He comes in many different disguises and only needs a

pinhole to penetrate our lives.

 

We should never underestimate

the influence that Satan and his demons have.

 They are powerful

and have brought many good people down.

His ultimate aim is to make people ungrateful to God.

 

 Satan's mission is to kill, steal, enslave,

bind, confuse, harden hearts, sow lies, slander,

deter, cause fear, doubt, unbelief and worry.

He takes pleasure in dividing, distracting, and destroying.

He uses our circumstances to have us be disobedient

so that he can defeat us.

His job is to weaken,

divert and gain control over our will...

through disobedience.

Satan's job is to blind the minds of unbelievers,

that they might not see the light of God.

 

 Satan endeavors to scrutinize, tempt, and discourage.

 

We know that Satan caused a war in Heaven

and was thrown down with a third of the angels to the earth.

He roams the earth seeking out the unrighteous.

"He prowls about like a roaring lion,

seeking someone to devour.”

 

He roams around the earth looking for individuals to attack.


Satan does not have the same qualities as God.

He is a created being; a fallen angel.

 

Since Satan is a created being, he is not omnipresent.

He cannot be everywhere at the same time. He is finite.

 

Every being is created with a purpose that only it can fulfill.

Therefore even the work of evil is turned into good

by the all knowing wisdom of God.

God is wise and efficient in using resources.

That which the enemy placed before us, for our detriment,

has become a blessing...

fertilizer for our soul.

 

May we become stronger each time we see through the

enemy’s deceptions and rise above them all.


Satan can go back to hell...

where he belongs.

 

 

  For God hath not given us the spirit of fear;

but of power, and of love,

and of a sound mind.

  2 Timothy 1:7
