The second most influential individual that ever existed is Satan… There seems to be some sort of strange curiosity about this character among certain groups and individuals that is difficult to understand. The amount of people that go to movies that involve Satan and his attacks against mankind is overwhelming. It may be that the forces of good always prevail in these movies and that makes these people that go see them feel better, but the real world is not a movie and good generally does not prevail… Satan is responsible for all evil that has ever happened to mankind. He is so subtle and persuasive that many people do not give him the importance of his existence and that is exactly what he wants people to believe. We have seen him attack this site by loading the page with nonsense, and it would not be a surprise to see him load the page with what may appear to be good posts in order to accomplish his mission, and no one would know it was satanic, yet he completes his task and moves good posts from good people off the first page. He is that subtle !!!

We cannot overly emphasize the importance of God choosing man losing to Satan as the first story concerning mankind in the Bible. The Bible is filled with stories and events in which Satan has taken part and we see the results are always disastrous. We are being given these lessons in order to make us see and understand the power of Satan and yet, many think of him as an insignificant irritation. We are not capable of understanding his powers but, we can say that he has affected the lives of every person that ever lived, with one exception, Jesus. However, if we look at what Jesus had to do to deal with Satan, we can say that even Jesus was affected by Satan.

Satan hates God and he hates all things that God has done including creating man. There is nothing that Satan can do to God, but he certainly can and does influence and affect the lives of the creations of God, and it is all negative. Satan was used by God during biblical times in order to show us the power of evil and how to defeat it when we become aware that we are being influenced. Why He still allows Satan to interfere with our lives only He knows, and you can ask God that question if you ever get to meet Him…

The methods of influence used by Satan are endless and continuous. He is not as much interested in non believers because these people already belong to him. But, believers are constantly being attacked by Satan and most of the time, we are not even aware of it. Paul tries to explain the magnitude of this problem when he tells us in Ephesians 6:12-13

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Now, this description does not sound like a walk in the park, Paul is talking about warfare and goes on to describe how to protect ourselves from that attacks of Satan. And, do not think that this is not a war greater than anything we have ever experienced because Satan has tools that we cannot even imagine…

We are very much concerned that people do not take the immense power of Satan too seriously, especially the younger individuals that do not have enough experience to recognize an attack.  In fact, older people seldom recognize an attack, and are influenced by Satan to do things that they know are wrong. We must remember that we can never undo anything that we have done, but if we consider the possibility of satanic activity in our lives, we can begin to do something about it.  If you have been given the Spirit, you will be nudged onto the right path. If you do not get the message from within, then you can always go to God and ask for the wisdom to deal with the situation and He promises to give it. As hard as it may be to believe, Satan is probably involved with every aspect of every life and event. As we study the Bible, we will see more and more methods that are used by Satan and at some point, we will be able to recognize the attack before it is too late, that is why these lessons were given to us.  Learning about life and all that is in it, which includes Satan, is what the Bible gives to us. It might be a good idea to read it !!!
