Some would say, "I have never seen the devil."
Oh Yah! We have never seen Abraham Lincoln and never met anyone who did.
But we accept what the history told about him being a great President.
The same human history offers evidence of the existence of God.
If we accept God’s existence then we must believe that Satan is real.
Because Satan always stands opposite of what God is.
Let us see three simple factors about Satan.
His origin, his nature, and his ultimate end
As Ezekiel describes in chapter 28, Lucifer before he became Satan, enjoyed the presence of the Most High God and one of Guardian Cherubs on the holy mount of God.
Such status and position was lost and Lucifer was expelled from heaven with disgrace because of his pride.
In the process his name was changed from Lucifer (shining one) to Satan (hater)
Satan became a corrupted being as well as a condemned being in the sight of God.
His Nature is always a liar and deceiver.
He deceived Adam & Eve in Garden of Eden and brought the curse of the sin in the human DNA since then.
He attacks us mentally to capture our mind and draw attention from the Word of God.
He attacks us morally due to a depraved mind to love sin and the world.
That leads to immorality, perversion and addiction of all kinds.
He attacks us motivationally to take control of our will and drift us away from the Lord.
His Ultimate End
Satan's end has not yet come but it will come only at the Lord Jesus's Second coming.
In Rev 20 it is described in detail the end of Satan.
Satan is a created being looking for someone to devour as Peter says 1Pet 5:8.
Only one way we can confront the challenges of Satan and overcome, is with Word of God and constant and consistent walk with the Lord.
My friend Satan is very real and looking for the believer in the Lord always.
Never take light of Satan because he can cause havoc in our life if we are not obedient to the Lord's will and live out our lives in the light of the Gospel.
Whe we have our focus on the Kingdom of God, the Lord gives us the helper the Holy SPirit to guide us and lead us and make us victorious in our faith walk.
May the Lord strengthens us with HIS power and presence.
