Because of his unique ability to sow confusion,
chaos, and conflicts, Satan was banished from
Even though Heaven is as flawless as a setting
can be, the devil was able to influence
one-third of the angels with his false and
defamatory allegations against God. Angels
who had worshiped together were now at odds
over issues the devil had concocted in their minds.
We know that Satan caused a war in Heaven and
was thrown down and pulled down a multitude
of rebellious spirits with him.
Even though Satan was cast out of heaven,
he still seeks to elevate his throne above God.
He is an imposter. He tries to copy all that God
does, hoping to gain the worship of the world
and encourage opposition to God’s kingdom.
After Satan's fall, he began his horribly long
and repulsively stubborn warfare against God.
The Scriptures indicate that Satan was once
the fairest of God's creatures. Satan was the
Satan became puffed up with conceit and
fell through pride.
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
Satan's goal is to cause our downfall by
unleashing doubt, division, destruction,
and doom in our lives, to name a few.
Satan, our greatest foe, is the ruler of the demons.
They are his agents. They work together 24-7
and are pros at what they do and never miss
opportunities to attack.
He is on a reckless mission
to destroy God's people and
the cause of Christ.
Satan and his villainous goons have always
been cruel and hellish. Today, Satan and the
demons are as murderous as ever. In fact,
since being cast out of heaven, their evil
activity has increased. Reports from all
over the world attest to their atrocities.
Satan’s art of war is to use all
means necessary to confuse,
suppress, weaken, tear down,
condemn, accuse,crush our
spirit, lay heavy burdens and
strongholds on us, plant seeds
of negativity, steal our joy,
destroy our testimony and
or ministry, kill the
consciousness of God’s people
and eradicate, dismantle, crush,
wreck, shatter, sabotage, wipe
out, and/or ruin any evidence
that glorifies and honors Christ.
Satan doesn't want to see God's
people move in power and victory.
Satan's very name means
“one who opposes.”
He is an adversary of God.
Satan, also known as the devil,
which means "slanderer"
is God's opponent.
He is not
He is active, dishonest, and
deceptive, but he is not
Omnipresent, he cannot be
present everywhere at the
Satan, also known as Lucifer,
is not imaginary, he is the god
of this world. He is a tempter,
a thief, and an accusing evil
spirit who is always working
in an attempt to blind and dumb-
down minds and take hold over
He is a lying, evil, manipulator who does not
want people to know or understand the truth.
He goes over and above to wage war and
lead people into darkness and rebellion
The greatest mistake we can make about Satan
is to underestimate his power, duplicity, craftiness,
underhandedness, and influence.
Satan's influence has led many innocent
people astray into darkness, chaos, and
rebellion against God. They have been lured,
seduced, brainwashed, converted, and persuaded
that they are truly free.
He is evil and will stop at nothing to gain new
ground so that he can profoundly influence
the human sphere by leading God's people astray.
Satan 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 varies his methods considerably, but
his goal always remains the same, and that
is to gain the greatest possible degree of
control over the mind.
The enemy wants to access our minds
and hearts and gain a foothold in our
affairs, and all he needs is a pinhole
to do so.
He arrives in a variety of disguises and has
a plethora of evil schemes and strategies
at his disposal.
Satan's aim is to confuse, deceive, and, if
possible, rule the mind.
Satan will do whatever in his power to disrupt
God's plans and attack those who follow God.
We are in an invisible spiritual battle with a cruel enemy
who is crafty, cunning, rude, controlling, sly, subtle,
malicious, and dangerous. This is a real enemy who
prowls around seeking someone to devour.
1 Peter 5:8
These battles between the world, the flesh,
and Satan have eternal ramifications... and
our souls are on the line.
We all have a race to run and job to do, so let
us put on our full armor and prepare ourselves.
Satan may come to us in sheep's clothing, but he
is a ferocious wolf on the inside. He sometimes
disguises himself as a servant of righteousness,
twisting and distorting God's Word.
Before we can launch a victorious offensive
attack against Satan, we must first identify the
adversary. We must understand Satan's
characteristics, tactics, and techniques in order
to assume full power and authority over him.
When we know the real...
we will know what and who
Today, Satan appears to be more successful
than ever in raising up foes to harass and destroy
God's people. Satan is at the root of the world's
unceasing evil today. Satan does not personally
carry out every evil act, but he orchestrate them all.
We should never underestimate the combined
forces of Satan and his demons. They are evil, and
they have driven many good people to their knees.
Many people are caught off guard by Satan's
spiritual onslaught. Many people in our society
deny what is obvious. They have intense,
confused, and contradictory notions about Satan.
It's tragic that some people think of Satan as a
mythical entity wearing a red outfit and wielding
Many people do not think that the devil exists,
and Satan rejoices when people are intentionally
ignorant about him.
Satan delights in making people blind, distracted,
deceived, and gullible to his deceptions.
Satan manipulates the mind in such a way that
it becomes mentally passive.
In order to bring anguish, vexation, sadness,
uncertainty, and faithlessness, Satan scrutinizes,
tears people down, tempts, confuses, and
Satan desires nothing more than to invade
specific areas of our lives and render us
ineffective for God's Kingdom. Satan wants
us to feel unworthy of lifting our hands in
worship or even lifting up God's Word!
Satan is so envious and cruel that he will go to
any length to tear us down and rob us of our peace
Satan is opposed to us fulfilling
God's calling in our lives.
He seeks to gain a foothold in order to throw
us off balance, distract us from our focus, and
persuade Believers to doubt God and pridefully
question and distort God's authority, doctrine,
direction, and love, not for a better understanding
of God, but to have man so enslaved to sin that
they cannot reason and understand the Gospel.
Another deception Satan tries to convince his
followers is that God will never save someone
Satan uses lies and accusations
as his weapons.
Lies, deception, division,
and wicked deeds are all
characteristics of Satan.
Satan is the author and
father of lies.
Satan is a crafty, manipulative, and deceptive liar
who attempts to sow terrible lies and seeds of
doubt about the goodness of God.
He tries to silence the voice of God within
our hearts. Satan does not want us to experience
a blessed life.
Satan will go to great lengths to keep us
from hearing God's voice and sharing
God's Word with others. His ultimate goal
is to turn people against God.
He will do all in his power to keep us from
glorifying God with our time, treasures, and
He enjoys hardening hearts, taunting,
scrutinizing, discouraging, and weighing
us down with fear, anxiety, temptation,
and confusion. He is known for infiltrating
our lives invisibly and then causing all sorts
of relational difficulties, particularly in our
Satan is a master manipulator, deceiver, and
sower of dissension and hatred. Satan is on
a rash mission to corrupt, mislead, and
undermine our faith in God and genuine
love for Christ.
He is after our families, as well as our
physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.
He wishes to cloud our perception. He
does not want us to talk about what is real,
honest, just, pure, and lovely.
Satan is hell-bent on destroying
God's people and the cause of Christ.
He enjoys trapping individuals in his
web so that his nefarious plans can still
be carried out. Satan is both a devouring
lion and a deceiving snake.
Satan is literally hell-bent on perverting
and obstructing God's plan. He wants to keep
us conflicted, divided, and ignorant of God's Will.
Satan's aim is to kill, steal, enslave, bind, confuse,
harden hearts, sow lies, slander, discourage,
and instill despair, doubt, unbelief, and anxiety
in people. He enjoys dividing, distracting, and
He manipulates our situations to make us
disobedient so he can defeat us. His job is to
weaken, divert, seize control of our will, and
fail to to obey God. Satan's duty is to blind
unbelievers' minds so that they do not see the
light of God.
Satan is lethal, malicious, and
envious of God.
Satan despises God and hence seeks to kill
all people, particularly God's children.
Satan appears to target individuals who have
God's favor. He tries to confuse, intimidate,
and mislead believers as much as possible.
Satan wishes to lead people away from
God's path. He persuades his subjects to do
things that are against God's will. During our
rage, Satan says to us, "Go ahead, have
your vigilante justice."
Satan seeks to gain any kind of stronghold
in order to throw us off balance, distract us
from our focus, and persuade Believers to doubt
God and pridefully question and distort God's
authority, doctrine, direction, and love, not for
a better understanding of God, but to keep man
so enslaved in sin that they cannot reason and
understand the Good news.
May we never forget and always remember:
God is the Author of Peace,
All warfare is deception, and Satan's art
of war is to use all means possible to confuse,
weaken, and destroy God's people's
The Scriptures tell us everything we need to know
about Satan and his crafty schemes. God does not
want to give Satan too much regard, nor does he
want us to grow preoccupied with him.
God is completely good and entirely
Omnipresent, Omnipotent, Omniscient.
God has total control and dominion over Satan.
Trust, the devil can only do what God allows.
The earth is still God's, and
Satan's options in this world
are very limited.
According to Romans 11:33, God knows
everything before it happens, and God's
timing is impeccable. There is nothing that
happens in the world that is not under God's
control, authority, and/or direction. God
knows no boundaries. God exists before,
above, and after everything in the past,
present, and future.
Although we must be mindful of Satan's
schemes and techniques of attack... for our
we must always remember
and never forget...
Whose we are.
The continual involvement of Satan is critical
to God's goals in developing our character.
Events that happen to us and how we respond
to them can shape who we are as Believers
to an astonishing and humbling level.
The Bible is clear: people will be known
by their fruits. Not because of how much
money they have. Not by the number of
followers they have. Not by the number of
books they have written or the wonderful
achievements they have accomplished.
They will be identified by the fruit that
grows in their lives.
God will sometimes enable us
to suffer a breakdown in order
for us to have a breakthrough!
God wants the best for us and understands
how critical it is for us to be alert. He freely
provides us with His power and protection so
that we can face each day with courage,
compassion, audacity, strength and
determination. God will never abandon
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.
The all-knowing wisdom of God transforms
the work of evil into good. God uses resources
wisely and efficiently. What the enemy put in
front of us to our disadvantage has become a
godsend... fertilizer for our spirit.
May we get stronger each time we see through
the enemy's lies and gracefully...
rise above them all.
