Because of his unique ability to sow confusion, 


chaos, and conflicts, Satan was banished from 


Heaven. 



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 


anointed cherub.


Ezekiel 28:14



Satan became puffed up with conceit and


fell through pride.


1Timothy 3:6



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


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 is described as an opponent 

and adversary who rebelled 

against God and became the 

catalyst for the fall of 

humankind. 


He is the prince of evil spirits, 

and the father of lies, there is no

 truth in him. 


He is a misleading flatterer, 

thief, tempter, the adversary,

 false accuser, slanderer, and 

master deceiver who works

hard at blinding minds and 

triggering Believers to 

relapse into sin. 

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.

He roams the earth seeking

out someone to attack.

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 al


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 


“adversary” or


 “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



God's equal.



He is active, dishonest, and


 deceptive, but he is not 


Omnipresent, he cannot be 


present everywhere at the 


same time.



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


our lives. 

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 


against God.

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 conceals truth 

and targets the mind.

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 


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 


is false.

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


 a pitchfork. 



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.

Our minds are extremely important to us since

 they serve as our decision-making mechanism. 

If we lose our minds, we also lose our ability to

 choose among our options.

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 


discourages Believers.



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 


in God.


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


like you.

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


 abilities.



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 


families.



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 oGod'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 


destroying.


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, 


not Confusion.

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 


consciousness.

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 


own welfare, 


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 


us defenseless.

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.
