You are God’s creation He made us in His image. We need to understand why the Devil is working so hard to destroy everything that God made pure and holy.
First, you need to understand that when God created Satan, he was a perfect specimen. But then He cast Him from Heaven? The Devil’s pride came from his desire to be God, instead of a servant of God. Satan was the highest of all the angels, but he wasn’t happy. He desired to be God and rule the universe. God cast Satan out of heaven as a fallen angel.
So, when God made Adam and Eve and put them in the garden of Eden. The Devil saw that as an excellent opportunity to begin to destroy God’s creation. Satan appealed to our curiosity, greed, envy, vanity and lust.
Satan acts as leader of the fallen angels. These demons, existing in the invisible spirit realm yet affecting our physical world, rebelled against God, but are ultimately under His control. Satan masquerades as an angel of light, deceiving humans just as he deceived Eve in the beginning.
In this scientific, rational age, spiritual beliefs are, scorned as a myth. The Devil doesn’t mind those who rebuff the reality of fallen angels or demons. By masking himself, he can tempt and deceive people without blame. Those with open eyes knows that Satan and demons are determined to deceive humans. Demons are fighting real battles and wars against heavenly angels.
1 John 3:8 – He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose, the Son of God was, manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
For you to defeat the Devil, you have to recognise His Strengths and weakness. Satan is cunning, intelligent, powerful, resourceful, and perseverant. But Satan’s Weaknesses He is evil, wicked, proud, cruel, cowardly, and selfish. He can never overcome you once you know the methods he used to tempt you.
Mighty God, I recognise the influence of Satan as over many of your people. I pray that you will remove his grip on us, cast him out of our life and from the path that we are on. I rest my assurance on Jesus Christ to bind the Devil and put away is evil from among your creation. Amen.
