The Origin of Satan

Satan is alive and well on planet earth today. His silent invaders swirl through the air.  Around us lurk infernal warriors of the Kingdom of Darkness.  These are not science fiction aliens.  Rather as super strong extra-terrestrial intelligent beings their aim is clear.  Their shocking strategy is so powerful, normal humans would pale if aware of it.  These twisted demon hordes as deadly as a terrorist's bomb, are locked on course. Their target is the human mind, the control center of every human being on the planet.

Like hideous locusts they feed on the filth of spiritual wickedness. They find resistance only from those few and far between warriors of the kingdom of light. That's right; you and I are enemies to Satan and his hosts. To even speak of this dark world of evil invites great and inexplicable difficulties.  As this truth from God’s Word is taught you may experience strange and powerful turmoil.

The confidence we have assures us though that we are "more than conquerors through Christ.” As we enter the realm of spiritual warfare, let's pray for peace. As we learn and grow today, we will find Satan is a defeated foe, a weakened adversary, and crushed enemy. We have the victory.

Because :

       SATAN IS REAL

       SATAN IS DANGEROUS

       SATAN IS POWERFUL

       SATAN CAN BE RESISTED

       SATAN IS DEFEATED

WE FIND OUR FOUR SOURCES OF TRIUMPHANT POWER

  1. The Cross: Colossians 2:15 “And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.” (KJV) 
  2.  The Blood:  Revelation 12:11  “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” (KJV)
  3. The Name:  Philippians 2:9-11 “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
  4. The Word:   Matthew 4:4   “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”
