The Work Of Satan

In defining him to begin with, Satan is the person of Lucifer after he rebelled against God. From when he attempted to challenge God, he has since become the principle opposer of God and of course is down here in a mission to recruit associates to accompany him to his destiny of everlasting punishment.

He is also called the devil, and his name due to his attributes is the Adversary. He is the prince of demons. The demons are his main coworkers,
Revelations 12: …that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth and his angels with him.
The demons were once angels, but they chose to join Lucifer in his attempt to take God’s glory. Mark 3: 22 …Beelzebul, the prince of demons…

Satan’s main problem was pride. He felt he was more deserving of glory than God who created him. He succeeded to deceive one third of the angels.
( Revelation 12: 4 … his tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth.)
In his mission of raising a battalion to work with, and because his mission failed, his motive of deception turned from raising an army to work with to raising partners for company into his destined turmoil. He do not want to go to hell alone. He want as many as possible.

Bringing us to his first work, the Father of lies. John 8: 44… for he is a liar, the father of lies.
He is masterminding all forms of deceptive measures geared towards luring and getting the entire humankind with himself to eternal condemnation , Revelation 20: 10 And the devil who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulphur … they will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
Satan with the demons having a higher intelligence than humans, is actively committed to binding and locking up the minds and intuitions ( reasoning) of men, tilting the truth of God to to get them get along with him through cravings of the flesh, lusts of life and pride of illusionary short lived accomplishments.
1 Peter 5: 8 …your enemy the devil prowls around looking for someone to devour.

To destabilise the the firmness and stability of the elect ( those who believe in Jesus) on the truth of God. And due to lack of understanding and the enlightment of the Holy Spirit, because Satan doesn’t want us to even have a glimpse of the knowledge of God, he comes to snatch away any little we get from Bible study and sermons.
Math 13: 19… the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown…
When we are lacking in firm rooting and faith ,he uses tribulations and persecutions to destabilise our knowledge the truth of God.
Matthew 13: 21… when trouble and persecutions come because of the word, he quickly falls away.

Satan majorly uses doubt and worries of life, long suffering and false doctrines to weaken our stability on our knowledge of the Truth of God.
There is great need for the reign of the Holy Spirit in our lives and the entire church of the Lord and among ministers of the Word of God.
Satan wants you to rethink about the promises of God concerning your life. He wants to put you in a state of doubt concerning the all sufficient might of God. He works in your mind and locks it up in lies and deception then leaves for you to decide and eventually prove rebellious against God like him.

From his name the devil, we find his other function which is evil. To propagate evil. Evil is generally Satan redefined. Both the evils which cause suffering to physical nature bodies, that we also go through in life and we experience from sources we cannot tell and moral evils that human agents actually do in life and to others all emanate from Satan.
He sources all evils and directly inflict them on humans through well schemed accusations to the Father, intending them all to make us fall into the trap to transgress against God and envision Him as not wholely good and truly faithful to us.
Revelation 12: 10 …For the accuser of brethren who accuses then before our God day and night has been hurled down.
All evil are Satan’s mastermind and he is the mindset behind all human suffering and pain. Death is his brainchild from when he lured Adam and Eve to lose trust with God and act in rebellion by eating of the tree from which God had forbade them.
Genesis 3: 4& 5 “You will not surely die, ” the serpent said to the woman. ” For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil. “

God did not intend for man to experience evil, but because the evil one would be in a competition with Him, He intentionally created that tree of good and evil so that man could chose between Him- the spring source of all goodness and the evil one.

The final work of Satan in this is theft. In a full force symbolic of the thief, Satan’s work is to steal, kill and destroy the work God is doing in and for and through us.
John 10: 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy…

These he does because of his desperacy for souls. Because he cannot create anything by himself, he only have to steal it if at all he is to have any. God could have decided to create a new generation of humans who worship and praise Him like He desires independent of the fallen Adam generation and there is nothing that Satan could do about it.
Actually He has angels and everything and he do not need man. He simply desires humans to decide to seek Him.
Satan is in the work of stealing the knowledge of the truth of God from us, to kill our hope of beholding the kingdom ( reign) of God in our lives and oversee the transition; of as many as he can, into the eternal destruction with him.

You are here and would love to have the abundant life free from the influence of Satan that Jesus gives? Repent and purpose to commit to this relationship unto the hope of glory.
Confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead to save you from the condemnation of death.
