Satan's Job

Beyond a doubt, the greatest misjudgment we 

can make regarding Satan is to underestimate hi

power, duplicity, craftiness, under-handedness

 and influence. Satan's influence has blinded many

 unsuspecting unbelievers into darkness, chaos, and

rebellion against God. They have become prisoners 

to their sin, yet, lured, seduced, brainwashed, 

converted, and convinced that they are really free.

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.

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.

 Satan will do anything and everything in his

 power to thwart God's purposes and oppose

 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 

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.

These conflicts between the world, the flesh, and 

Satan hold eternal implications... in which our souls are at 


We all have a race to run and a work to do, so let us put 

our full armor on and prepare ourselves.

The enemy wants to access our minds and hearts and get 

a foothold in our affairs, and he only needs a pinhole 

to slip through

*He comes in many different disguises and has an arsenal

 of evil schemes and strategies.

Satan's goal is to cause our downfall by unleashing doubt, 

division, destruction, and doom in our lives, to name a 


Satan may come to us in sheep's 

clothing, but inwardly he is a ferocious

 wolf. Sometimes he will even disguise

 himself as a servant of righteousness, 

twisting and trying to manipulate 

God's Word.

Before we can launch a victorious offensive attack against 

Satan, we must recognize 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.

When we know the real... 

we will know what and who 

is false.

Satan is described as an opponent 

and adversary who rebelled 

against God and became the 

catalyst for the fall of 


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. 

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 

He 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

We know that Satan caused a war in Heaven and 

was thrown down and pulled down a multitude 

of rebellious spirits with him.

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, 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’s art of war is to use all 

means necessary to confuse us, 

suppress us, weaken us, tear us

 down, condemn us, accuse us, 

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 ofGod’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.

Today, Satan seems successful, as never before, 

in raisinup 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. 

We should never underestimate the influence

 that Satan and his demons have. They are evil

and have brought many good people down.

Many unsuspecting individuals are blindsided

by Satan's Spiritual attacks. Many in our society 

deny the obvious. They have strong, confused, 

and conflicting ideas about Satan. 

How sad it is that some could or would 

characterize Satan as some fictitious person 

in a red suit with a pitchfork. Many people

 don't believe that the devil really exists, and

 Satan has a field day when people become 

willfully ignorant about him.

Satan loves for people to be blind, distracted, 

flattered, and gullible to his deceptions. 

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.

Our mind is very important to us because

 it is our decision-making mechanism. If we

 lose our mind, with it we lose also the 

ability to select our options.

Satan's goal is to: confuse the mind deceive 

the mind, and if possible, control the mind.

 He endeavors to scrutinize, tear people

 down, tempt, confuse, and discourage 

Believers in an effort to cause misery, 

vexation, sorrow, doubt and faithlessness. 

Satan wants nothing more than to enter 

certain areas of our lives and render us

 ineffective for the Kingdom of God. Satan 

wants us to feel unworthy to lift our hands 

to praise God or even lift up God's Word! 

He works on the mind in such a way as to 

induce a state of mental passivity.

Satan is so envious and malicious that he

 will leave no stone unturned in his attempts 

to tear us down and rob us of our peace in God. 

The enemy does not want us

 to fulfill God's calling 

in our lives. 

He  wants to gain a stronghold to throw

 us off center, distract us from our focus, 

persuade Believers to doubt God and pridefully

 question and distort God's authority, doctrine, 

direction, and love, not for greater understanding 

of God, but to have man so tied up in sin that

 they cannot reason and understand the Gospel.

Another lie Satan attempts to tell his 

subjects is...God will never save a person

 like you.

Satan uses lies and accusations

 as his weapons.

Lies, deception, divisiveness, and evil doings

 are all consistent with Satan's character. Satan

 is the author and father of lies.

Satan is a cunning, manipulative, and a deceptive

liar who tries to plant ugly 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 goes over and beyond 

to deter us from hearing God's

 voice and sharing God's Word 

with others. His ultimate aim 

is to make people ungrateful to


He will try to do whatever he

 can to steer us from glorifying

 God with our time, treasures, 

and talents.


 He loves to harden hearts, belittle, scrutinize,

 discourage, weigh us down with fear, anxiety, 

temptation, and confusion. He is notorious

 for getting an unnoticeable foothold in our 

lives and then triggering all kinds of relational 

conflicts, especially in our families. 

Satan is a manipulator, a deceiver, and a

 master in sowing discord and hate.

Satan is on a reckless mission

 to corrupt, seduce, and destroy

 our faith in God and our sincere 

devotion to Christ. 

He is targeting our families, 

and our physical, mental, and 

spiritual stability. He wants to 

darken our understanding. He 

does not want us talking about

 the things that are true, honest,

 just, pure, and lovely. 

Satan is dead-set on destroying 

God's people and the cause 

of Christ. 

He loves to get people caught up in his snare

 so that his devilish intentions can still be carried 

out. Satan is both a lion that devour and a serpent 

that deceives.

Satan is literally hell-bent on perverting 

and preventing God's plan. He wants to keep 

us conflicted and ignorant oGod's Will.

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 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."

Satan wants to gain any kind of stronghold to 

throw us off 

center, distract us from our focus, persuade

 Believers to doubt God and pridefully question

 and distort God's authority, doctrine, direction, 

and love, not for greater understanding of God, 

but to have man so tied up in sin that they cannot

 reason and understand the Gospel.


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.

The Scriptures tell us all we need to know

 about Satan and his cunning ways. 

God neither wishes to flatter Satan with too

 much publicity nor desires that we become

 preoccupied with him.

God is completely good and completely sovereign. 

God is supreme in power and authority over Satan. 

Trust, the devil can do no more than God permits. 

The earth is still God's, and Satan has very limited 

options in what he can do in this world.

According to Romans 11:33, God knows everything 

completely before it even happens, and God's

 timing is perfect. There is absolutely nothing that

 happens in the universe that is outside of God's

 influence, authority, and/or control. God has no 

limitations. God is above and before all of the

 past, present, and future. Although we need to

 become acutely aware of Satan's schemes and 

methods of attack... for our own good, it would 

behoove us to always remember and never forget...

Whose we are.

The ongoing role of Satan plays an essential 

role for God's purposes in refining our character. 

To an extraordinary and humbling extent, who 

we are as Believers can be determined by events 

that happened to us and how we respond to them.

God’s Word is clear, it says they’ll be known

 by their fruits. Not by how much money they have. 

Not by how many followers they have. Not by 

how many books they have written or the great

 things they have done. They’ll be known by 

what fruit exists in their lives.

Sometimes, God will allow us 

to have a breakdown in order 

to have a breakthrough.

God desires the best for us and knows how 

important it is for us to live aware. He freely 

gives us his strength and protection to stand

 strong each day. God will never leave us 

defenseless on our own.

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.
