So, here’s my question? If Satan stared you in the eyes would you be able to recognize him? 2 Corinthians 11:14 – But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.
Would you know how to defeat him? Could you stand up to him?
1Peter 5:9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
Satan comes to bring chaos in the lives of us all, but we have to be ready to know how to defeat him and return the fire. 1 Peter 5:8 “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.”
The attacks can come in so many different forms you just have to be able to identify them, and most people cannot- and they brush it off like it’s something that just happened or appeared… but come on…. we all know that that’s not the case at all. I had a follower pose a question to me ” Is Satan really as bad as people say he is”?
I said, ” let me first ask you a question”, Are you saved? He answered me “no”, and I went on to ask him if anyone in his family was saved and believed in Jesus Christ? He responded ( yes) so, I asked him what was the reason for asking me that question. He said “because I’ve heard some recent conversations that Satan is not all bad, not as bad as people are trying to say that he is” .
And, I said to him, Have you ever been surrounded by someone that was just a plain ole’ distraction? Someone who seemed to just want to always criticize you when you were around them?
Have you ever been in the presence of someone that wanted to try and intimidate you for whatever reason? And to scrutinize you with shock and awe?
Well!! my friend that was him, Satan working through that person to antagonize and belittle you.
Satan won’t only do that…. but he will also slander people to the point where he wants them to turn away from the path of victory that God has set them on.
Let me tell you, he will twist things and fabricate what you hear in order to get you out of the will of God, and you may be asking yourself “what does these questions have to do with you”.
Well, A lot my friend.
You’re not saved, and for this question to come up wanting to know the good, the bad, and the ugly I am here to let you know all about it when it comes to satan because God loves you and doesn’t want you ignorant to the deception of Satan yet alone the love of Him(God), the truth or His word….
Please know that Satan is not nice, nor is he kind in any way…. I actually do not care where you heard That “he’s not all bad”, I just want you to know the truth.
He most definitely is not your friend saved Or not saved, he is a user and a big time manipulator.
What I want you to know is this ….On the day of Jesus crucifixion, In the natural realm it may have appeared to many that Jesus was put on display and made a public spectacle of, but in the spiritual realm Jesus made a public spectacle out of Satan and all of the demon forces… Satan will use whomever he can for whatever he can if you allow him to.
The power of Satan over any of us was defeated at the cross and can be proven, if we choose to live out this life for God-
Satan was disarmed, put on display and defeated….you have a right to know this as a non believer.
Do you guys know that after speaking with this young man for a few days he prayed the salvation prayer and got saved !! I told him that I would locate some churches for him in his state and give them his email address so he can connect for fellowship and bible study for his growth.
I have to tell you, you must be ready and prepared to feed people and show them the truth in the word of God. Mark 16:15 And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.
